So that was Croatia Rocks, which meant we were off to Dubrovnik. The trip from the island of Pag down to Dubrovnik was anywhere between 4-6 hours, depending on if you took the scenic route. We decided to do something in between. We didn’t want to spend all day driving especially after the long night of dancing to Fatboy Slim. This meant that we drove down the highway (with tolls, which are pricey but manageable). Which was still extremely scenic and pretty darn quick considering we basically went from one end of the island to another. Don’t believe me? Well here is my map again:
First off I have to say the roads in Croatia are amazing! Like 95% of them were perfectly smooth and easy to drive on. Yes they were steep and windy at times but overall they were great. The trip went really well, just a few minor spats about driving and getting gas/ trying to to break down. But after spending 24/7 sharing everything together we were glad to not be killing each other. The road to Dubrovnik is a funny one, because you are driving in Croatia and then all of the sudden boom you are needing to pull out your passport so they will let you into BOSNIA. It was like a 5-10 mile stretch of driving where you were simply in Bosnia. Everything went smoothly, but it was strange having to cross the border twice. From Bosnia it was a super short drive to Dubrovnik. Simply over the bridge and there we were.
