"Passion in stone" Top 5 Page for this destination Kornati Islands National Park by KristaB

The god of the sea, Poseidon, had seduced one of Zeuses favorite nymphs. Two had fled the anger of supreme Olympus god by hiding into Hadria bay - Adriatic sea. Here they surrendered to their passion. Mad of jealousy, Zeus had found the lovers, and had thrown his mighty lightning on lusty couple. But Poseidon managed to rescue his loved one by taking her deep under the sea, only his just released seed of passion and fertility got struck by lighting, and Kornati islands were born.

    I would pay extra for them to kill my dinner before I picked it out.. Still.. it looks like a special dining experience.

    Great storm stories. Was Zeus upset with you for something?

    On a hill and afraid of lightning? Go figure. I imagine the wind was blowing to Oz.
