A weekend in paradise!

The speedferry raced across the water. At the fourth stop it was my turn to get off. Wow! What an amazing place! I walked onto a white pier and was greeted by the manager of the resort. Together with the other guests I walked toward the white beach, admiring the crystal clear water of the…

Stepping back in time

I fell in love with the old town of Dubrovnik. What a pretty place this is! As soon as you enter through the old Pile gate, you step back in time. It’s like the middle ages, only with a bunch of souvenir shops and without the smells of piss and garbage. The new and improved…
