Panoramic views and sea kayaking
|Pastry breakfast – 28 kuna, $5|
I then took the cable car to Mt. Srd, which looks above the city. It has some beautiful views and it cost 120 kuna for a round trip ticket. Instead of staying at the cable car station at the top, I hiked about 1/2 mile on the road going back down to get some better views.

|Wish we had these in the states|
|40 kuna, or $7|
We paddled around Lokrum island, stopping in one cove and them we rounded ‘sausage beach’ with plenty of sunbathers of a certain gender – sorry, no pictures of that.
|Sea kayaking was 230 kuna, or $40 – definitely worth it!|
We then paddled back to where we started about 2.5 hours earlier. I went back to my hostel and showered, then grabbed my camera and set out again.
For dinner I went to a Bosnian restaurant named the Taj Mahal. This restaurant comes highly recommended from a number of different sources, including the girl working the front desk of my hostel. And despite being Bosnian, this is considered one of the better street restaurants in Dubrovnik.
I ordered the cevapi, grilled vegetables, and a beer. The food was very flavorful and the service was quick, but not overbearing. I want to get one nice meal in each city I visit, and this is what I chose for Dubrovnik.
|230 kuna – $35|
After dinner, I took the cable car to the top of Mt. Srd again to get some nighttime pictures. I decided not to tour the museum, I’ll do one tomorrow instead.
I stopped by a restaurant at the top and got a table right near the edge which had some great panoramic views. I got some drinks – a mai tai, then a mojito. After taking in the view, I took the cable car back to the Old Town. I walked the Stradun and got some more ice cream. Ice cream scoop count: 4. Days traveling: 2
Tomorrow i don’t really have anything planned. I need to look into getting bus ticket when I leave on Tuesday, but other than that, I’m pretty open.
It’s going great so far!
