Sometimes, setting is more important than characters and plot. It can be enough to drive a story. Up until now, I haven't blogged much about repeated settings of travel adventures. This is a mistake that I hope to redeem in this Croatia post. This setting does drive story, but it's the characters that make this story memorable.
Five of my traveling companions (two being children) and I arrived in Dubrovnik late Saturday afternoon. We were prepared for the wet weather. Sunday, we walked around old town Dubrovnik and walked back to our rented apartment, 20 minutes up hill, drenched. By then, two more of my friends had arrived and we were ready to face the weather again. Our spirits were not dampened!
