Napoleon Bonaparte said, “If the earth were a single state, Istanbul would be its capital.” It’s easy to see what he meant when you walk through the markets and shop lined streets. This is the center of everything that is commerce between Europe, Asia, and Africa. “Come in my friend. We make you good price.”
We like snow. Skiing is fun, and we would sometimes make anatomically correct snowmen when given the chance. We’d even spent a week snowmobiling in Park City Utah one winter and have seen our share of white Christmas’s over the years. So, of course, we like snow. We had just never lived in a place with snow for longer than a week before. What could possibly go wrong?
Dubrovnik is a happy memory in a very special time for us. It’s where history and beauty meet in a city by the sea, and it’s probably the most beautiful city we’ve ever lived in. We split our time in Dubrovnik between two different parts of the city and we really got to see a lot of the area. Life is simple there and it was a great place for us to learn more about ourselves.

Things rarely seem to go according to plan. It’s how you respond that matters.
