Mljet

Mljet

While we were in Dubrovnik, we took a day trip out to Mljet, an island in the Adriatic.  It was the kind of lazy, laid back place that could eat up a couple of years of your life before you even knew what had hit you.  In fact, legend has it that very thing happened to Odysseus.  According to Homer, Odysseus was ship wrecked off the coast of Mljet and there he met the nymph Calypso, daughter of Poseidon, and he ended up spending seven years there, captured by the tranquility of the island.   According to another legend, St Paul was also shipwrecked on Mljet and spent 3 months there preaching the gospel as is written in the Acts of the Apostles 27 – 32.
