I stop to catch my breath, turn around and – wow. It’s a perfect view. In the foreground, the dark green tufts of the treetops; above them the steely blue of the Adriatic and the blinding blue of a cloudless sky. This is Lokrum, a tiny island off the coast of Dubrovnik that can be reached by a 15-minute ferry ride, and we seem to have it all to ourselves. Well, apart from the peacocks that live here.

I am cursing myself for having forgotten my street map for the city of Pula, on the Istrian peninsula in Northern Croatia. But I’m determined to find the Roman amphitheatre I’ve read so much about. My three children follow me surprisingly patiently despite the 36C heat. Nearing the port we turn a corner where, towering above a line of nondescript street buildings, sits probably the most impressive – and well-preserved – ancient structure I have seen in years.

So when you’re cruising the Croatian coast with the windows down, and the traditional local folk music blaring, the last thing you want to see is a dark black cloud obscuring the horizon. As it turned out, our driving experience in Croatia happened to coincide with a series of severe thunderstorms.

While I was gone, Zagreb lived through war, then welcomed peace. But my relationship with it never turned peaceful. Having left my parents and oldest friends behind, I returned at least once a year. Sometimes I stayed a few weeks. Typically, toward the end of week two, I’d begin to feel a tightness in my chest, the skies would start closing in around me, the facades would appear even grayer, the streets — even on a sun-splashed day with packed sidewalk cafes — dull.
