I wake up early and head down to the Croatia Airlines office at 8 am as we have decided that enough is enough with the trains... I book flights for us that leave 3 hours later and then go for a run around the old city.  We have breakfast and head to the airport.

Next thing we know, 55 minutes later, we are in Dubrovnik.

Head to the Avis station and schedule a car pick up and then call up a hotel, Villa Argentina, to book a room.  We get to the hotel and discover that our hotel room price almost doubles the next day when July 1 high season kicks in.  After a brief protest, the concierge lets us know that he has an apartment across the street not technically associated with the hotel that we could rent from him, complete with a balcony view that was much better than the hotel rooms that were more than double the price before the high season increase. Only issue is that we had to climb 150 stairs to get there... No problem, and we take it!




We put our stuff down and spend the rest of the day at the "beach" pool, diving off rocks, swimming, eating and relaxing.

The night takes us into the old city for a constitutional stroll, drinks at the outdoor cafes and then dinner at Gil's, which is taken on the top of the city walls.  While sitting down for pre-dinner drinks, Phin spots a girl who is clearly walking around alone and looks relatively lost.  Neither of us approaches her but make a mental note for tomorrow's entry.  After dinner we hit up Fuego, a latino club that is entirely way too hot and has an average age of no more than 19.  We head home by 4 am and are dead tired by the time we get up to our sweet apartment.
