“Ah. Croatia. What a gem you were. This past summer I took an eight day road trip with three of my best friends and the best couchsurfing host we could ask for. This is a map of our journey. The wine cork was from a delightful evening at a Slovenian castle where a kind old man have us endless free wine (perks of being the only visitors). The paint brush is from the pottery room in a tower at the same castle. The small white stones are from our secret beach cove, and the small ceramic sailboat was a goodbye present from our host, Shime, art the end of our epic trip.”
