Thursday Doors in Hvar, Croatia

If you read yesterday’s post (HERE) we were setting off down the side streets of Hvar. You also will know that Hvar, Croatia was my favorite place to visit on our Mediterranean cruise. To me everything about it was perfect…….the history, the  weather, the waterfront, the cafes, the restaurants, the people. As yet, it is…

This is Hvar, Croatia!

Of all the places we visited on our Mediterranean cruise, Hvar, Croatia was my favorite place! Why do you ask? Because it was not stifling hot, humid, sticky and crowded with tourists! It had an awesome, smallish beach. It had the most beautiful and walkable waterfront area surrounded by tiny cafes.  It had lots of…

January Photo a Day: Happy Are the Hunks of Hvar and So Am I

I was working on my blog posts for Hvar, Croatia and wondered just where I could add the Men of Croatia, when I came upon the January Photo of the Day Challenge: Happy, for January 15th.  Now, I have to say in all the Mediterranean the men in Hvar, were the best of tall, dark…

Thursday Doors in Kotor, Montenegro

Today, we are in Kotor and if you would like to know more about this beautiful, UNESCO World Heritage Site, look here for the particulars!  I am focusing on Doors today! This is my idea of the perfect hotel! Not too big, a place to sit and watch the world go by, and gelato to boot!…

We Are Finally Back in Kotor, Montenegro!

Well, not exactly today, except on my blog……….I am catching up and writing as fast as I can (life and holidays seem to get in the way) If I don’t get a move on I will be off again and not have the Mediterranean finished. Picking up where we left off before the holidays, we…

The First WeekendCoffeeShare of 2019 Is Here!

If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I feel like I have been gone forever from you dear friends! The month of December flew past in a whirlwind! Things are settling down now and I can get back into a comfortable routine. That is to say, “I make lists.” I like everything in…

What Day Is It Exactly?

A New Year and New Possibilities! So far, this year, I have had a hard time remembering what day it is! Every day seems like Saturday to me! It’s Thursday and I am thinking it is still New Year’s Day! So what do we have planned this year, you ask? Well, there is another cruise…

Thursday Doors in Montenegro

Today our ship is in port in Montenegro and I thought I would share some doors from Budva, on the Adriatic Riviera, one of our first stops in Montenegro.  Budva is about 28 miles south of Kotor and is a big tourist attraction because of the beautiful beaches, night life, restaurants and the preserved Old…

Montenegro? Where Exactly Is That?

We have left Positano, Italy and are on our way to Kotor, Montenegro. I have to say, the only thing I knew about Montenegro is that they have a team in the Olympics and I would see them march in on that first day, when the teams are introduced to the world. I was not…

#TimeSquare in Budva, Montenegro

A Walk Along in Positano, Italy

We have arrived in Positano on a hot Sunday afternoon and what is everybody doing? They are at the beach! I can’t believe how blue the water is! People are trying to cool off! And some are under the very colorful umbrellas…………. No shampoo or soap allowed at the shower! This is the only “fat”…

A Walk In Amalfi, Italy

We will soon be heading out of Amalfi, but before we go, take a look at the village on the sheer cliffs! Just walking around here gives you goosebumps! It is just so Italian and everything one imagines Italy should be! As you are probably aware, this year, we decided not to lug cameras or…

Saint Andrew Cathedral, Amalfi, Italy

Today, we are still anchored off the coast of Amalfi, Italy. We are tendered to shore in those orange roofed life boats. Looking at the coast, this is the splendid view this morning! See that tall building in the center of the photo? That is our first stop.  We will be visiting the Saint Andrew…

Thursday Doors: Amalfi, Italy

We are hot……….it is early morning and it is hot………….but we have looked forward to getting to Amalfi and it should be hot in the middle of the summer right? But, still I am really hot! As I look out from our balcony on the ship I think there should be lots of doors here….

Saying Goodbye to Our Last Port on Elba Island: Portoferraio, Italy

This island is the perfect getaway whether you are coming for the beaches or wanting to get some solitude! So, one last look and back out to sea for us! And photos from the ship…………. Sailing, sailing, sailing away! Where…
