Conversation (short story, writer link up)

Today I'm joining a writer's link up. Feel free to read other stories and find out more about it here. It is organized monthly by blogger +Natalia Lialina and everyone is welcome to join in. My story is about 1100 words long and titled Conversation. Original version was twice as long and written in Croatian, so I guess  this is a rewrite.  Without any further ado, here is my short story for this month.

I was in a hurry, running to catch the bus  and doing my best not to look ridiculous in the process, when suddenly I saw a familiar face.  He was sitting on a bench in an ordinarily looking park that started where the bus station ended and despite the fact I couldn’t see his face I recognized him immediately. His back was slightly hunched and the tips of his wings, dragging on the grass, haven't been white in ages. Their colour was more ash like and perhaps there was actual ash on them, among other things, among dirt and dust that is characteristic to any c…

Sights to see, places to visit (+outfit post) / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, mjesta za posjetiti (+ odjevna kombinacija)

I'm starting a new feature on my blog called Sights to see, places to visit and this is my first post of the kind. Today I have for you one dinning recommendation and a bit of history to spice it up. That doesn't sound too bad, does it?. So if you ever happen to come to Mostar, I recommend you to visit one pub that besides a wonderful selection of beers, also serves exquisite wines (this is a wine region after all) and delicious dishes. 
When I first came into Mostar, I have fallen in love with one particular street. It was the trees that so enamored me. They belong to the Platanus family of trees and in English they are called plane or plane trees. Thanks to this pub's website I have learned that these trees were planted in 1889 to welcome Belgian Crown princess Stephanie and Crown prince Rudolf of Austria and celebrate their visit to Mostar. 
Let's get back to the way this history information connects with the pub I just recommended visiting. You see, many villas in…

etno selo (treći dio)/ ethno village (part 3)

Life lately (3 outfits, 3 dishes) /Život u zadnje vrijeme ( tri obroka, tri odjevne kombinacije)

My favourite time of the day is when I prepare lunch. Often I feel that is the only time I really have for myself, a short break from life that is to be welcomed with open hands...On the other hand, I might  just be  such a foodie. I can never get bored of cooking and baking cakes.
Moj najdraži dio dana je pripremanje ručka. Često imam osjećaj da je to jedino vrijeme koje zaista imam za sebe, kratki predah od života koji je više nego dobro došao...a naravno možda se jednostavno radi o tome da jako volim jesti. Nikad mi ne može dosaditi kuhanje i pečenje kolača.
