The first stop on our cruise was Dubrovnik in Croatia, which we enjoyed immensely. I'm looking forward to telling you all about the ancient part of the city, which is where we spent the entire day.

I had promised a while ago (cough* almost a year ago* ahem), that I would share photos and post about the places my husband and I went on our honeymoon. Finally, I am getting around to it. Today I'll give you the itinerary and a few pictures, and then we'll look at each stop individually with some of it's highlights and history.

The story doesn't end there though. The Battle of Hastings happened on October 14th 1066, which also happened to be the birthday of the American General Eisenhower in 1890. Taillefer left Normandy for England, and Eisenhower embarked from England, landing on the beaches of Normandy in WWII. Lastly, both "Taillefer" and "Eisenhower" can be translated as "hewer of iron". Fun coincidences, no?
