But, it’s all we had time for and we made sure to make the most of it. Given the nickname…

Not for long though, because as I quickly learned, snowboarding is A LOT harder…

    Known for Nikola Tesla, inventing the first fountain pen, producing some of the best olive oil in the world and of course now in the 21st century, Game of thrones; the most popular location being Dubrovnik, whose city walls and forts became King’s Landing.
