Hutovo blato (travel post/ putopis)

Now, about this nature park (Hutovo blato) I have written a few times already. However, this time I'm showing you something a bit different, photographs that were taken from one of the rent-able boats that are available for sight seeing purposes. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed taking photos on that ride that seemed to pass so quickly, like all the good things in life seem to do. It is really serenely calming experience to be on a boat and see only the untouched nature around you. For a moment I have felt like I was in Amazon or rather what I imagine being in Amazon might feel like (for I have sadly never been there and much want to). It was a good day, some 3 years ago if you care to put a  dates on event...I remember just being blissfully happy and calm. Hope you enjoy the photographs.

E sada, već sam pisala o Hutovom blatu nekoliko puta, ali ovaj put je ipak nešto drukčije jer su tu fotografije koje su uslikane sa jednog od onih brodova koje možete iznajmiti za razgledavanje. Ne mogu vam reći koliko sam uživala u slikanju ovih fotografija na toj vožnji koja je prebrzo prošla, kao i sve dobre stvari u životu. Stvarno je jako umirujuće voziti se na brodu i vidjeti samo prirodu oko sebe. Na trenutak osjećala sam se kao da sam u Amazonu ili bolje rečeno onako kako zamišljam da bi to moglo izgledati (jer nikad nisam bila nažalost, a jako bih željela). Bio je to divan dan, otprilike prije tri godine ako vas zanima datum...Sjećam se da sam se osjećala blaženo sretno i smireno. Nadam se da će vam se svidjeti fotografije.

Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…


January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know  it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.


Most of the trips I took this January were to areas located in vicinity of Mostar city (where I'm still based) but in February I visited Croatia. I&…


What is the link between Amelia Earhart and fashion? Well, for one Amelia was known as one of the best dressed ladies of her time. Amelia sewed her own dresses, and while it was pretty common for women to sew their dresses back then, Amelia's dresses got her a lot of compliments. Moreover, Earhart took it a step further by designing a fashion line inspired by aviation. Amelia Earhart was the first celebrity to launch a fashion line in her name. She also designed it herself, sketched the designs with a seamstress working alongside her. Unlike many modern day celebrities who just put their name on whatever, Amelia really put some thought into her designs.
Did you know that Amelia was a fashion designer? Did you know she was quite fashionable and praised by many for her feminine charm and elegance? Today we think of her as a tomboy but I think there were many sides to her and that is what made her so wonderful. Do you like avi…
