Recently, a reality show taught me something about Croatia that I would otherwise have blindly passed by.
But where did we learn of this lucky gargoyle? From none other than The Bachelorette! And you thought the show was only good for nights with girlfriends spent yelling at silly boys. The Bachelorette, educating young minds across the world.
Being the "slightly" competitive person that I am, I monopolized the wall, spending an extended period of time atop of said stone, attempting to master the legend. At one point, I kid you not, my attempts were greeted with a round of applause from gathered tourists.
The walls framing the gargoyle stone have somewhat ironically become shaded into a heart from tourists hands attempting to secure their luck in love.
To reality TV, to traveling, to education outside of the classroom... and to failing miserably and not finding a Croatian wife.
