Croatia – Country No.19!!

If you look at a map Croatia is a funny shape… It has a strange section of coastline sandwiched invetween Albania and Bosnia’s only port, Neum. 

There is an important and beautiful coastal port town in this tiny bit of Croatia called Dubrovnik. It has a fascinating maritime history although now it is more like a historic tourist town.

We’ll be cycling more of Croatia in a few weeks after we’ve wiggled our way up through Bosnia and Herzegovnia. 

Dubrovnik was a nice place to stop for an afternoon on our way into Bosnia. Here are some nice photos.
