When I was a kid, every summer I went on holiday with my family.
I was very lucky. We often went to other countries in Europe, as they were closest, but sometimes elsewhere.
One particularly memorable holiday was when we went to Dubrounik in Croatia.
It is most famous for it’s old town – a beautiful old European style marker place, surrounded by huge 16th century stone walls.
It’s filled with shops, restaurants and buildings with wonderful architecture and is right on the mediterranean seafront. It was quite idyllic.
Behind the old town was a big hill with houses lined all the way up it.
We stayed in a house right at the top.
So everyday, we walked for ten minutes down the hill to the old town and then back up the hill at night (which was much harder).
I remember that there was a group of stray cats living behind a house halfway down the hill.
My dad called them “Eddy 1”, “Eddy 2”, “Eddy 3”, etc…
I asked him how he knew which cat was which and he answered,
“I just know.” But I don’t think he did.
