Ruth says: the beautiful Dubrovnik. This gorgeous town has white buildings and marble floors so when the sun shines everything sparkles. We were lucky enough to be there for the first day of the Dubrovnik festival. There was a big opening ceremony with music and dancing and all the streets were lit up with flaming torches. The town was heaving with people and the atmosphere was amazing. After the opening ceremony everybody thronged to the docks where there was a huge firework display, and then everyone spilled back into the town and the party kept on going. As you can see from the pictures of the street we spent hours in the same cafe where all the drinks, including gin and brandy tasted of cream soda.
