Where the…?

2 May

The image in the header of this blog is taken from atop the fortress-like walls of Dubrovnik, Croatia’s Old Town. The structure in the image is apparently a very old water cistern/catch that serviced the inhabitants should they need to be closed off from the outside world (ie. in cases of battle). Now, the entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a hugely popular tourism destination. Highly recommended.

    Marc, beautiful picture. I think that nowhere in this world now can be closed off. There are residents in many UNESCO heritages were wondering: How people know about this place even when they do not have any communication tool to access the outside world? You are actully promoting for them on your blog now. Amazing!

      Thanks Amanda! I didn’t even think of that, but a great insight. I certainly have been promoting Croatia – it was indeed a beautiful place to visit. Thanks for your comment.
