Our delicious lunch at Lacroma Restaurant (LR) on Lokrum Island in Dubrovnik, Croatia was the best ever meal in our Balkan road trip last April. We cannot really think of another meal that can come that close to this. Seriously.

In 1023, the municipality of Dubrovnik donated the island of Lokrum to the Black Monks – the Benedictines – stipulating that they should build a church and monastery and run the economy on their own.Today, it is the perfect getaway and side trip from busy Dubrovnik. Just 15 minutes with the boat and one can enjoy peace, nature, the beach, and history in this preserved once monastic little island of Lokrum.

If you are going to imitate something, then you better do it well. The Dutch weren’t the inventors of blue pottery. They learned this skill from Italian potters and copied Chinese-style porcelain brought back by Dutch seamen from the Far East through the Dutch East India Company (VOC – Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie), which by the way is the first publicly traded company in the world. So, if there is another thing than trade that the Dutch did was good, that would have to be being master imitators of porcelain ware.

Have you been to Delft? It's the little sister of Den Haag/The Hague. The 'markt' (market square) is the living room of Delft and we had lunch here at the King's House! Not bad at all =)

Do you like the outdoors? Do you like taking walks? Here are some pictures of our walk in the Kaapse Bossen forest last autumn in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

I am not the type who uses superlatives in my blog posts to describe my experiences but when I say it is soooo good, it really is very good. This was so far the best burek I have tasted and it smelled so good as well!

On our first day in Dubrovnik, we were rained down, but the weather was considerate enough not to rain on our welcome parade. Not when we arrived. It waited until we were able to check in to our room, enjoy a very late lunch, and move the rental car to a public parking garage.

But arriving in Dubrovnik was a game changer on our agenda and on our diets. Not just because it is a new city and a new country with new food and restaurants to offer, but we are soooo looking forward to pig out on seafood!
