Sudden Travel Decisions

It seems like every Sunday in the last couple of weeks has been a travel Sunday. Yesterday, the three of us were hanging out at my friend’s house and, all of sudden, we decided to take a small road trip. It’s one of those moments when everything feels right to go on an adventure. So we did. For the next 6 hours we were driving east and exploring Posavina (one of Croatia’s regions). Not to mention making multiple stops to take a bazillion of photos. Posavina is still a fairly untouched region, full of countryside vibes and unspoiled nature. There are herds of sheep, horses and cows all around. Also, there are a bunch of cute little fishing spots with wooden docks.

One of the first stops we did was to take a photo of this beautiful herd of horses near the small village called Svinjicko. The horses weren’t scared of us at all. We especially loved the little foal, goofing around and kicking every horse on its radar.

After that, we went to visit Ethno Village Stara Lonja, in Lonja. It is run by two brothers who made us feel most welcomed. If you’re interest in rural tourism, I would highly suggest booking a trip there. The area is packed with traditional wooden houses and domestic (and wild) animals. Not to mention being situated in the heart of Lonjsko polje, one of Croatia’s nature parks.

On our way home, we visited Muzilovcica and Suvoj, the two places along the bank of river Sava filled with the mentioned fishing spots and little wooden docks. Also, we bumped into a herd of sheep and goats accompanied by their shepherd. After that, we made one last stop which was a fast food stand in Sisak. Kinda hungry we were. Hehe. Anyway, it was such a beautiful and fulfilling day. We need more of such traveling rash decisions in our lives, for sure. God bless.

      Thank you! Svinjicko is one of those places with a stigma of being hillbilly-ish (among us living closer to town). Even the name means Pig Town. Yes, Pig Town. :D But, it’s just straight on gorgeous, there. Especially the nature around it.

    Hi Ines, greetings from the Netherlands! Croatia seems to be so beautiful and your photos definitely do justice to the beautiful countrysides of Croatia. I should come visit Croatia one day and see it for myself I guess! Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!
