This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

the city wall.


day 5. me, T, and his mom made our way to the old town to walk the city wall which surrounds the old town. it was built to protect the city during times of war. the views from the wall were simply amazing, overlooking the rooftops of the old town and the adriatic. here are a few of my favorite shots.









a walk around the city walls takes approximately an hour, and right when we were near the end of the wall it began to sprinkle.. then pour. we had to quickly make our way down and hide for a bit in a cafe for an afternoon cappuccino.



soon after the rain cleared and we found a place to enjoy an early dinner...
croatia has surprisingly good beer. beer that even i drank! we accompanied the beer with some fried fishes, mussels, and squid ink risotto




then we headed back to the villa for the night.
