Husband and I snuck off for four days of sun, seafood and booze for the 7 year anniversary of our first date. We're kind of nerds when it comes to dates. It was also our 2 year engagement anniversary, and 6 month wedding anniversary. See? Nerds.
We're not sun people, but I cannot express how much we needed some sun this year. Spring is only just starting to make an appearance here in Ireland, about 2 months overdue at this stage, so it was a bit surreal to escape to some Croatian sun. Here's hoping we all get a hard dose of this soon ...
Mussels and monk fish. If you're half as crazy about seafood as I am, Dubrovnik is the place for you. Not only is the seafood some of the best I've had, the price will have you dining out for every meal. With wine. Every meal. p.s. Please excuse my messy plate. All table manners go out the window when seafood is present.
Squid ink risotto - something I've always wanted to try, and it was worth the wait. Just heaven. I also noticed everything I ordered matched what I wore. I'm the only person to go on holidays and wear black.
And below, a bit of wisteria hysteria. It grew on anything and everything and poor husband had to stop every 10 paces while I took pictures of all of it. No hydrangeas, but wisteria will do.
So long, sunshine. Hubby and I are contemplating another short break this year, but somewhere closer to home. Do any of you have exciting summer holidays planned, or anywhere you could recommend? xx A
