“Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Our time in Trogir, Croatia is rapidly ticking down, and we are getting sentimental about leaving this special corner of the world that we have called home for the past seven weeks. Today, we will be heading to Dubrovnik, the so called ‘pearl of the Adriatic,’ by bus. It is a bittersweet morning.
There is so much that we will miss about Trogir – its choir of the bells on the hour, our morning walks to the nearby island of Čiovo, watching novice sailors test out their nautical skills on the sparkling Adriatic, the mischievous canines and felines, and architectural flourishes and nooks and crannies that have enlivened our childlike spirits. Most of all, though, we’ll miss the kind people who made our time here so special. They taught us about Trogir’s incredible history, introduced us to Croatia’s wonderful wines and cuisine, took us out onto the Adriatic Sea, showed us how wild asparagus foraging is done, and taught us tidbits about the culture that we otherwise wouldn’t have learned. To these fantastic citizen diplomats we say hvala. Thank you for making our time in Trogir so special.
There are still many stories yet to be told from this charming Dalmatian spot, so we won’t be saying goodbye to Trogir for long. Until then, here are some more scenes of everyday life in Trogir.
