For various reasons, Croatia has been on my mind this week, so I'm taking a break from posts about the Seychelles to focus on Dubrovnik this week.
Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, is a gorgeous walled city. The walls are wide and well maintained, providing a wonderful walkway for looking into the city and out to the ocean beyond. Within those walls, I remember glistening white "streets" (cars are not allowed within the the walled city) and warm white walls, narrow alleys -- some comprised of nothing but steps, wonderful food severed alfresco, and intricate local jewelery. The old city is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with a wealth of wonderful late medieval buildings. Dubrovnik might be my favorite jewelry shopping destination in the world, but it is so picturesque that even I had trouble staying focused on all those jewelry shops!
Despite all my reminiscing, this is my contribution to Photo Thursday at Nancie's Budget Traveler's Sandbox. Check it out for more images and stories from around the world.
