After Dubrovnik, we took the ferry to Mljet. The ferry docked at Polace, but we’d read that Pomena was a slightly busier town. Getting off the ferry, there was a cluster of people offering accommodation. We just needed to find a taxi to take us to the next town. We asked a lady where the taxis were, and she called her son over and told us that he would take us in his car. We jumped in the back and were at Pomena in no time. No accommodation had been booked yet, so we decided to have a beer whilst finding somewhere to rest our weary heads…

Halfway through the beer, it started to rain, and instead of easing off, the rain got heavier and heavier, reaching biblical proportions, which meant we got stranded in the bar for three hours (shame!). When it finally stopped, we set off in search of a room, and spotted a lady on a balcony of a house that had a bed symbol on the wall. We shouted up to ask if they had any vacancies, and remarkably, they did! Ensuite, with a view of the sea, and right next to the national park entrance. Not only that, we got 10% off if we ate at their restaurant – and have to say, the fish platter was A-Maze-Ing!
