Southern Dalmatia | Mljet & Hodilje

It’s been a while since I visited the very southern parts of my country. I already blogged about our Afternoon in Dubrovnik so I will try to keep it out of the way, this time.  Actually, it was my first time visiting any of the big croatian islands. In this case Mljet. To be honest, in two days that were there, we didn’t see much. It was a time thing and we had a 9 hour bus ride back…

Afternoon in Dubrovnik

Once again, I was a tourist in my own country. Although this was my third visit to Dubrovnik, the town never seizes to amaze me. It’s still as gorgeous as ever, despite all the visitors. I went there with my friend Kyle, as one of the stops on our four day trip to southern Dalmatia. We didn’t get to see all of it, but enough to experience the afternoon vibe of the city.

Our initial plan was to walk the…

Opatija

Yet again, I was a tourist in my own country. I rarely get the chance to visit our northern coast. For some reason, I always seem to end up in Dalmatia. Anyway, yesterday I took a day trip to Opatija, a touristy coastal town situated on the istrian peninsula. It’s a town where croatian tourism we all know today begun. First hotel ever opened there. Not to mention its riviera was visited by the Habsburg imperial family.

Although I’m more…

Zagreb Before Dark

Unnaturally warm afternoon in Zagreb and all we did was circling around St. Mark’s square waiting for all the lights to turn on and sky to darken. I lived in this city for a couple of years and whenever I return, it’s always giving me the same, good vibes. My feet always seem to take me to the same places that I remember from my days in the uni. There’s this viewpoint at the Upper Town where I would…

The Southern Alps

So, I returned to scene of the crime. It appears that, recently, everytime I step outside of Croatia, I end up on the  motorway connecting Slovenia and Austria. Is that God giving me subtle hints or what? However, fate or no fate, we all know I milk the mountain scenery like nobody’s business. This time, it was no different. I said to my friend I only have spring left and my Mountain Highway series will reach a full circle.

Vienna | Stadtpark & Donaukanal

Judging from my Twitter and Instagram posts, you already know I spent the last week in Vienna. I was visiting my good friend Marijana (MKlasan). Normally, I would start at the beginning but I felt like sharing the photos I took during our walk through the Stadtpark and along the Donaukanal. It was a sunny and warm Wednesday afternoon. It took as three days to finally catch some together time as Marijana was working during the day. That is…
