Listen now (16 mins) | In this episode: Touring the old city, memories of the old Dubrovnik, and your reader comments. Recorded 9/9/22 in Croatia
Our day in Dubrovnik was ruined by the mobs of people. Yeah, irony alert -- we were part of that mob. But experiences like that convinced us to only visit the super popular places in the off season. Otherwise, we find it impossible to enjoy them very much.
thanks for advice about mobility limitations - great podcast - any of you three could be doing voice-overs
Dubrovnik of the former Yugoslavia in the 70s not so crowded and touristy .. very inexpensive and same medieval sites
Every city I visit provides me with a bit of unique history. Just returned from Rome and I learned a lot and made memories to share.
My favorite historic city must be Williamsburg, Virginia since I have been there at least 8 times - I am NOT one to go to the same place over and over again - by choice! Over the years it went from only the Governor's Palace with an admission fee to a ticket to see ANY of the buildings and shops. It is different every visit - with activities happening on the Green or at various buildings. And I paid and went again.
Being set aside from the modern City is probably why it grabs me, no cars to dodge and the feeling, - even with the crowds of people with cameras and bags of purchases hanging from them, is the history that took place in this small area. Williamsburg and sailing on the Lewis R French are the only 2 things I have done repeatedly (not counting visits to friends & family).
Pictures look beautiful.
Wonderful…. Life is good
Yet airlines still canceling flights, hotel fees, parking fees, poor customer service
