Happy New Year!
It was just us, a few thousand mostly locals, and some Croatian pop stars! Since Sunday we’ve been taking it really easy here in Dubrovnik, enjoying what must be one of the best preserved old towns in the world – but more on that later.
Despite a lot of apprehension about whether we had a good vantage point, we were lucky to nab a bench just along the side of the old harbor at about 11 where we waited out the new year enjoying the steady flow of passersby – a really nice mixture of ages (and states of, shall we say, merriment!).
We wish all of you a very happy and healthy 2014. In the morning the resolutions start, but for now let’s celebrate our general good fortune and the successes of 2013.
That’s all from the shores of the Adriatic tonight – it is time for bed as Astrid has turned into a pumpkin!
