It all smells rather of some large publicity stunt, in fact, it is a large publicity stunt, of which I’m now a part, but what the hell – Google Earth has made it very clear to the world that the island of Galesnjak off the coast of Croatia is shaped a lot like a heart – or at least a love heart anyway.
