2016年3月、半年を経てドゥブロヴニクを再訪しました。完全にドゥブロヴニクに恋をしたようです。美しい街並みと自然、豊かな文化と歴史だけでも十分に素晴らしい場所ですが、何よりも地元の皆さんに惚れ込みました。

前回、当時住んでいたシンガポールに戻った後、クロアチア、特にドゥブロヴニクが頭から離れない状態になりました。目を閉じるとフラッシュバックに襲われるほど。数ヶ月経ってもフラッシュバックに襲われ続けるというのはよほどのことです。当然、これはいかんので、原因究明すべしという結論に至った次第。

そして眼下に広がるこの風景。最高です。

My second trip to Dubrovnik happened in March, 2016, half a year after the first one. Dubrovnik really got me - it’s beautiful, full of culture, history and activities, and its people are just so incredibly friendly!

After I went back to Singapore where I lived back then, I kept dreaming of Croatia, especially Dubrovnik. I literally got flashbacks when I closed my eyes! Clearly, getting flashbacks was not normal, and it continued months after months… And since it wasn’t normal, of course I needed to go to Dubrovnik again to figure out why this was happening :)

So here I was. Imagine the immense feeling of relief when I saw these beautiful landscapes from the plane window. I was saved… Yey!

Dubrovnik古城最吸引我的地方,

並不只是在於他是個古城,而是在於他是個「活生生」的古城。

人們在裡頭俯仰、生活,是那麼樣的自然、愜意…

What the Dubrovnik old town attracts me is, 

not only his is an ancient city, but also an “living” ancient city.

People work, eat, play, talk, and sleep there, so leisurely and easy…

So if you flick back a little in my blog you’ll come across some wedding photos of Chris & Gina in Dubrovnik Old Town, Croatia from September 2010. I decided to book a weeks holiday around the wedding to take a little time off. This was the view from our apartment in the heart of the old town, and man, what a holiday it was. Croatia is a breathtakingly beautiful country, if you get the chance to go you really should. I mean it.
