Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – Travel – ‘The Streets of Old City Dubrovnik’ by Sherri Matthews

While I’ve been away, lovely Sally Cronin has featured weekly the remaining three of my travel posts for her Archive Travel Series: Strolling through ‘A Most Beautiful Village of France’ in Normandy and finding sweet solace in a tiny, ancient chapel; breathtaking Jersey and a day at the ‘War Tunnels’; and this week, the last of the four, in historical and stunning Old City Dubrovnik, in Croatia (and a link to a Cats of Croatia post…couldn’t resist).

Thank you so much for the visits and lovely comments awaiting me upon my return from my holiday. It’s wonderful how sharing old posts forms new connections, filling the Summerhouse with lively discussion through shared discoveries and adventures. Travel is a wonderful thing, and I am beyond thankful for the opportunities I’ve had to travel to such places, but they are even more wonderful when shared with you.

Thank you so much to Sally for this wonderful and incredibly generous opportunity and sharing my posts far and wide. Sally invites all to join in, and is a lovely way to meet new bloggers, re-share old posts to a new audience and learn great travel tips!

In her own words, Sally invites all to join in:

‘The aim of this series is to showcase your blog and any creative work that you do from books, art, photography and crafts. You pick between one and four links to posts that you have written for your own blog since you began blogging up to October 2017 and you simply send the link to those blogs to sally.cronin@moyhill.com

You have to do nothing more as I will capture the post and images from your blog and I will then post with full copyright to you.. with your creative work and your links to buy and to connect. I might sometimes need a little more information but I am quite resourceful in finding out everything I need.

The deal is that you also help promote the post by sharing on your social media and responding to the comments.

Previous participants are more than welcome

The theme for the new series is travel.

Places and countries you have visited,
Different cultures,
Exotic food you have discovered when travelling,
Modes of transport – cars, bikes, horses, RVs
Camping Trips,
Road trips,
On the road for work,
Train Journeys,
Travel themed music,
Planes and airports,
Ships and other marine vessels,
Humorous adventures etc.’

Thanks again Sally!

Speaking of great travel tips, lovely memoir author D G Kay (Debby Gies) is sharing hers with us at ‘The Travel Column‘, her new regular feature over at Sally’s blog. For openers, if you’re going on a cruise anytime soon, you need to read this! And a huge thank you also to Debby for such generous sharing of Sally’s travel series and my posts in my absence.

Back to writing then, and will post here soon with new travel tales and adventures from my recent holiday with hubby on the sparkling Almalfi Coast. Including, but not limited to, an extraordinary encounter with an Al Pacino lookalike taking us on a wild taxi ride along back-to-back hairpins, while rummaging around looking for a Chaka Khan CD. Ahh…Mama Mia Italia!

Time for the fourth last post from the travel archives of Sherri Matthews who has taken us to Lake Garda, a traquil village in Normandy and to Jersey during wartime occupation. Today she takes us to Croatia and the beautiful streets of the old City Dubrovnik.

Over at the Daily Post, the Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is ‘Street Life’. Cheri puts the challenge to us in this way:

‘For this challenge, document the movement (or stillness) of a street: tell a story with your snapshot, capture a scene that reveals a bit about a place, or simply show us where you live — or a path you often take.’

With this in mind, here is my story entitled, ‘The Streets of Old City Dubrovnik’.

The beautiful country of Croatia (once part of Yugoslavia together with Bosnia and Slovenia until declaring independence in the 1990s) is home to…
