Just can’t wait to strip naked and jump into the clean, clear sea? Then Dubrovnik beaches are going to be right up your alley. They can range from sandy, quiet stretches of coast to nightlife hotspots to naturist enclaves. The one thing they all have in common though is the clean, clear water of the Adriatic Sea.
Chuseok is South Korea’s major harvest festival and is a big family affair each year. During this year’s Chuseok holiday at Gyeongbokgung in Seoul I saw these two adorable girls dressed in hanbok. The one on the right tolerated being photographed for a few moments before she either got shy or annoyed and turned her back. The little one was quite happy to have her picture taken all day.
I have a love/hate relationship with group tours when I travel. If we were in a relationship on Facebook, it could only be labelled as “it’s complicated”. When they’re good, they’re very, very good but when they’re bad they’re horrid. I tend to stick to day trips rather than multi-day tours. What’s your opinion on group tours?
Over the last 40 years, more than 3000 people have taken part in Linđo, the folklore ensemble based in Dubrovnik, Croatia. On my last night in town I attended a show at an outdoor theatre, where I got to see traditional dances and hear folk songs from various parts of the country. It was a real treat. The singers were a delight to the ear and the costumes were gorgeous to look at.
