Why didn't you tell me?!?

The world is full to the brim of things I don’t know about, but every now and then I come across something and think: “Why did no one tell me about this!” Then I have to send out mass emails to people informing them of the existence of said treasure, and if you read between the lines, berating them for not telling me about it sooner - assuming some of them already know. That long-winded introduction leads me to today’s “Why didn’t you tell me” treasure: Sveti Stefan.

Sveti Stefan

Can you believe it? It’s basically my idea of heaven. Like a tiny, perfect, privately beach-y Dubrovnik.

The price threw me a bit - at first I thought there must have been a mistake, but then Aman now own the entire island, and they really do imagine the most wonderful luxurious pockets of heaven imaginable - but then I thought about what I’d really enjoy most, and realised that I’d really just like to gaze across at this perfect little isle from my deck chair, and if I was staying there then that would be one pleasure Aman couldn’t afford me…

If anyone out there knows about any other slices of heaven then please don’t hesitate to let me know about them - however obvious they are to you, I may still be languishing in the dark. Heaven forbid!
