When I Randomly Zoomed In On Google Earth, I Definitely Didn’t Expect This. Neither Did My Heart.

On Google Earth, off the coast of Croatia, lies a little island. If you scroll past the coast of the Adriatic Sea, you’ll come across this strange little place… when we discovered the spot on the map, it was hard to believe what we were seeing. Was it the fountain of youth? Home of the gods? A trick?
You’ll have to see it with your own eyes.

The Adriatic Sea is located between Italy and Croatia.

If you zoom in…

And keep zooming…

You’ll find a little island named Galesnjak.

What makes this island so special is its shape.

It’s a perfect heart.

The spot is known as Lovers’ Island and is a popular tourist destination.

But something happened to the island that made it look more like Ex-Lovers’ Island.

Two strips of trees were torn down, making it look like the heart was broken, covered in bandages.

Luckily, Galesnjak’s trees are growing back. Two groves of olive trees are filling in the barren landscape. Soon, it’ll be a lovers’ paradise once more. The private island’s owner, Tonci Juresko, is hoping that in the future he can make the deserted paradise a perfect spot for weddings and Valentine’s Day getaways.
The tree re-growth just shows you that even though a lover can scar you, you will heal. At least that’s what I took from it.
