Be a tourist in your own hometown/ Budi turist u svom rodnom gradu
































I'm a big advocate of the whole 'Be A Tourist In Your Own Hometown' thing...and if there isn't such a movement, there totally should be. If you remember, I blogged about this before, so not to repeat myself you can read this post. If someone told me that I would feel cold  while wearing a puffer in April.... I know, who would have thought? Well, life is full of surprises and I for one am happy that is the way it is (most of the time anyway).

I did feel a bit silly when I saw an old lady in a swimsuit,  right there on the most famous Split's beach but the bays are naturally secured from the chilly wind that I was facing while I explored my hometown on foot. When you are playing a tourist in your own hometown you should dress comfortably (and warmly).

Ja sam veliki pobornik postajanja turistom u vlastitom gradu, a ukoliko taj pokret ne postoji, trebalo bi ga izmisliti. Ako se sjećate, već sam pisala o tome ovdje pa da se ponavljam. E, da mi je netko rekao da će mi ovog travnja biti hladno u debeloj jakni...tko bi to mogao pretpostaviti? No, život je pun iznenađenja i meni je drago da je tako (većinu vremena barem).

Istina osjećala sam se malo blesavo kada sam vidjela jednu stariju damu u kupaćem na Bačvicama, ali plaže su prirodno zaštićene od vjetra, a zbog vjetra je i bilo hladno, a ja nisam ostala na plaži već cijeli dan hodala po Splitu (buri unatoč). Kada se igrate turista u svom gradu, morate se obući udobno (i toplo).

    1. hvala, dama u kupaćem je stvarno hrabra čak je i u more zagazila i to da zaigra picigin! Impresivno s obzirom da joj je sigurno preko šezdeset.

  6. I ja ovo u potpunosti podržavam, uvijek se ima nešto novo za otkriti čak i u poznatim prostorima :)) Ja sam jučer na plaži vidjela čitavu obitelj s klincima kako se kupaju...ostala sam totalno wtf, vani je još prehladno.

  10. It is fun to rediscover where you live. I like to do it best when showing others around who are not from here. I would be an excellent tour guide :) Very cute shots dear and look how brave you are out in the wild sea on that rock :)P So lovely! xoxo

  11. I couldn't agree more. Whenever I'm on holiday I'm obviously super motivated to explore my destination as intensely as possible, because I'll be gone again soon enough. That feeling doesn't exist at home, so the motivation to become a tourist is much lower. It's a shame though. It's so mch fun to discover new things that are just around the corner :)

  16. Hi Ivana,

    I'm a strong advocate for being a tourist in your own country too! In fact, I also do visit forgotten places and feel like there's just so much to do in my hometown. I'm glad you're like that too.

    It's ok wearing a puffer in April. There are some areas that are still so cold in Spring.

    RYC:
    Yeah. I think butter is healthier than margarine and more delicious too. OMG! You tried duck! I remember you telling me you haven't eaten ducks as you often see them swimming around the river looking so cute. How did you find the duck? Since you had it at a Chinese restaurant, I would assume that's roasted duck?

  22. Dear Ivana, I'm also constantly still wearing at the puffy jackets - at least in the evening :) But I know: we are here in Bavaria and not in Split! Thank you for the beautiful pictures of your obviously wonderful town! And you look also fresh and wonderful on the pictures, I have the opinion I can see it makes you so happy to be in Split! Wish you a good new week.

  23. Bathing suit in the cold? Man, she is one very brave lady :). I am just like you. Cold is cold and i am wearing as many layers or the warmest jacket around to stay warm. I explore my hometown and not even my hometown. I just love discovering new things and places very day, regardless of how big deal or small deal it is :).
    Anyway you look easy going and happy in this look. It is such a practical look and i think your scarf is super cute. You look great!

  28. I do love this idea of playing tourist in your town. It's probably the least explored place you'll ever adventure in to. I always overlook this.

  36. It seems that everywhere is unseasonably chilly right now (I've just spent a week in southern Turkey - cold wind there too!)
    I do so agree about the joys of being a tourist in ones own back yard. I feel I'm only just beginning to experience many of the less frequented parts of Oxford. And as for my home village and surrounding area, even though I lived there for 18 years there is SO much left to explore and get acquainted with.

  37. hey ivana! i believe in that too. there's so much to new orleans that i haven't seen yet. hahaha and i've lived here all my life. it's invigorating. love your jacket and that scarf. looks really good together.

  40. I'm a big fan of playing tourist in your hometown as well. I had to laugh when you mentioned the old lady in the swimming suit when it's still so cold. At least you have an actual beach in Split. We don't have any beaches in NYC and people will go to to sunbathe in their bathing suits and sometimes even less and yes sometimes when it isn't even that warm. I've seen some really inappropriate things O_o

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…

What To Do in Split City in Autumn/ Winter?

Today I'm back with a list of suggestion of things to do in Split city during autumn and winter. There are many benefits to visiting seaside during the colder months. First of all, it's not as crowded as it is during the summer. Secondly, you can still get all the health benefits that your typical seaside provides. If you're looking for some sea therapy, this might be the perfect place for you. The climate is another thing to consider. The sea, like any large surface of water, does a great job of balancing the temperatures. Mediterranean sea is quite warm and its bay sea (i.e. the Adriatic sea) is no exception. Swimming is not out of the question and even if you're not up for that, you can still enjoy the benefits of mild winter temperatures. One thing I love about the change of seasons is that it gives me a feeling that I'm in a whole new country. If you loved Croatia in summertime, why not try visiting it in wintertime? Moreover, the accommodation is obviously m…

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…
