"““Then came the war, old sport. It was a great relief, and I tried very hard to die, but I seemed to bear an enchanted life. I accepted a commission as first lieutenant when it began. In the Argonne Forest I took two machine-gun detachments so far forward that there was a half mile gap on either side of us where the infantry couldn’t advance. We stayed there two days and two nights, a hundred and thirty men with sixteen Lewis guns, and when the infantry came up at last they found the insignia of three German divisions among the piles of dead. I was promoted to be a major, and every Allied government gave me a decoration — even Montenegro, little Montenegro down on the Adriatic Sea!”” - Jay Gatsby to Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby"
"This is one of the most extraordinary beaches I have ever had the pleasure of laying out on. Besides the arresting beauty and great snorkeling, you can buy mini-donuts from people walking around the beach for 2 Euro. They cover them with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar, and they are the most amazing beach snack I have every had. They also sell corn on the cob, not feeling that as much..."
"Another time and another occasion, it was September and it was Montenegro. Yugo started blowing rapidly, and the sea became stormy and fun for new types of entertainment. After this tide falls on the tourists - some will be knocked down to the floor, some will be washed away into the water.
This is an amazing entertainment to play with the wild water. Yet a bit dangerous and stupid, if you are washed away into the sea. But who cares for safety, when the Adventure is happening? :)"
"Really reasonable rates for good rooms with great views over Cavtat.
Recommend them to all and their family restaurant Ivan.
Thanks for a very comfortable stay Ivo!"
"On the island of Lokrum is an old monastery, and tons of beautiful peacocks! They are bread on the island, and are running around everywhere! The babies are adorable, and they make a beautiful island even more stunning."
