We arrived in Dubrovnik on the exact date that we had planned to meet up with our friends Trevor and Mary-Liz who were travelling from Australia. The plan was to meet at the Dubrovnik Youth Hostel, spend a couple of days here and travel back to England together.
The Youth Hostel was closed, one because it was Winter and two because they were doing renovations but we left a note and camped nearby.
We waited one day for them, we waited two days for them, we waited three days for Trevor and Mary-Liz to turn up or send a message but on the fourth day we had to move on. When we arrived back in England we received a letter from them saying they thought Dubrovnik was the name of a Youth Hostel in Greece!!!!! Trevor and Mary-Liz did get to Dubrovnik but days after we'd left but they got our message so they knew we'd made it on time.
I might add the waiting was not painful, we loved Dubrovnik, the food was good, the people were lovely but there was no where for us to shower! so driving up some quite road, heating up some water, stripping off and tipping the water over us was the only way we managed to keep clean.
