Our experience in Trogir was interesting…and funny!

It was a hot summer day in Trogir, and we decided to explore the town and its picturesque streets. One of our friends decided to wear her favorite straw hat to protect herself from the blazing sun. As she strolled through the narrow alleys, she stopped to admire beautiful buildings around us and take a few photos.

Suddenly, a gust of wind swept through the square, and her beloved hat flew off her head and landed on the floor. Panicking, she started running after it to retrieve it. The second she came closer to the hat – the wind started again.

She run around, desperately searching for the hat, but it was nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, a crowd had gathered around us, watching her ridiculous attempt to save the hat. One of the locals asked her what she was doing, and she explained that her hat had fallen of her head.

The local burst out laughing and said, “Don’t worry, you’re in Trogir! Here, we have a saying: If you lose your hat, it means you’ll come back to Trogir again.”

We all laughed and said we will definitely come here again!

 

Our friend was mad because we laughed at her but in the end she realised this is just one more good story she will be telling her children in the future.
