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.

  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

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
