Cheep, cheep … flights to Dubrovnik for Montenegro

Flying into Montenegro via Dubrovnik is 40% cheaper now than last year, apparently. I’m going out to our apartment in Montenegrofor a week at the end of March – one of my favourite times to be there, as the sun is warm, the air clear, and there is an abundance of beautiful spring flowers.
