Winning Ticket ... again.

We had a lovely evening at the Foreign Circle Christmas Party on Wednesday last week for the english  speaking expat residents of Dubrovnik.  The tombola offered some fabulous prizes, and my number came up! 2 nights B&B in the 5 star Hotel Excelsior.  The hotel has enjoyed the presence of guests such as The Queen, Liz Taylor & Richard Burton, Hollywood stars etc.   Our zero temperatures outside and flurries of snow made our stay even more enjoyable in the warm spa.  I won a similar prize last year with 2 nights B&B at the Hotel Radisson .... think the Foreign Circle may ban me from entering next year.
