We had heard such wonderful things about Croatia. Because we had booked a cruise from Dubrovnik to Split back in 2020, we went a few days early to check it out.
We have been looking forward to visiting Carcassonne, on our roving retirement journey, since we were in France in 2020. Both Diana and I had visited many years ago and we only remembered the climb up the hill, the “fairy tail” walls, and the cassoulet. This time we chose to stay inside the city walls of Carcassonne, to maximize our time in situ.
