How to get to Blidinje? Kako doći do Blidinja?


Last August, we visited nature park Blidinje. That is what I will be talking about, not just today but for the next few days. You'll get to know a bit about this nature park, that covers 364 km2.  If you can't wait for my next post, you can read more about it on this page, or you can visit this old post of mine. That fist visit was during Winter and this one was obviously during Summer. I can't wait to experience this amazing place in Spring and Autumn as well. Anyhow, we drove there by car, passing through one of the most beautiful canyons in the world, the canyon of river Neretva. I always love driving through this canyon. 


Prošloga kolovoza posjetili smo park prirode Blidinje. O tome ću pričati, ne samo danas već nekoliko idućih dana. Saznat ćete ponešto o ovome parku prirode koju pokriva površinu od 364 km2. Ukoliko ste nestrpljivi, možete o Blidinju pročitati više na ovoj stranici ili možete posjetiti ovaj moj stari post. Moj prvi posjet bio je zimi, a ovaj je očito bio ljeti. Jedva čekam vidjeti kakvo je ovo mjesto u jesen i proljeće. Uglavnom, odvezli smo se tamo autom, prolazeći kroz jedan on najljepših kanjona na svijetu, kanjon rijeke Neretve. Uvijek se volim voziti kroj ovaj kanjon. 









Interesting facts about Neretva river

1. Neretva's total lenght is 230 kilometres (143 miles).
2. It flows through territories of two countries, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
3. It is the largest karst river in Dinaric Alps in the Eastern part of the Adriatic.
5. This river has inspired countless songs, poems and stories. It remains a great inspiration to many artists, from photographers to painters, from poets to writers.

Zanimljive činjenice o rijeci Neretvi

1. Dužina Neretve je 230 kilometara (143 milje)
2. Prolazi teritorijem dvije zemlje, Hrvatske i Bosne i Hercegovine.
3. Najveća je krška rijeka u Dinarskom području istočnoga dijela Jadrana.
 4.Ova je rijeka nadahnula bezbrojne pjesme i priče. Ostaje velikom inspiracijom brojnim umjetnicima, od fotografa i slikara, do pjesnika i spisatelja.










Now, here we are a bit higher up, getting close to Blidinje. It is a great feeling being up in the mountains, I would stay there all the time if only I could. The final six photographs in this post were taken once we got to Blidinje (and the rest were taken on the way there). Tomorrow (or when I manage) I will show you the rest of the photographs and talk a bit more about this amazing place. 


Sada smo malo više, približavamo se Blidinju. Sjajan je osjećaj biti u planinama. Stalno bi bila tamo kada bi mogla. Zadnjih šest fotografije iz ove objave su uslikane kada smo stigli na Blidinje, a ove ostale na putu. Sutra (ili kada stignem) pokazat ću vam ostatak fotografija i pričat ću još malo o ovom nevjerojatnom mjestu.

  10. Soo many beautiful photos, the last one of you especially is my absolute fav - you look so gorgeous! Blidinje looks beautiful and definietly like my kind of place. I love quiet places like this, far away from any civilization, where you're just surrounded by nature and nothing else. :) x x We definitely lack places like this here in the UK! I'm looking forward to reading part two of this post, your travel posts are the best and you always talk about lovely places that are a little more 'under the radar', which makes them so much joy to read! Sorry for being a little MIA lately hun, I took a little unexpected blogging break but I'm back now and just about to catch up with your lovely blog. I hope you're well! <3

  12. I'm not surprised you love driving through this canyon - it's spectacular! Ah, this post has induced such happy memories for me of this past summer's travels; and for some reason I love how you're walking across the roads in some of the photos. I suppose it's because it reminds me of how out in the mountains there are far fewer cars driving along! :) This black shirt dress looks lovely on you by the way and good choice to go sleeveless, it looks boiling hot there!!

  27. Hi Ivana! This nature park looks divine - so do you, dear, I'm sure that it was amazing trip! What's more, I also like such places, where I'm surrounded by nature only, they make me realize that we, people are so small,when we compare ourselves with magnificent spots, which were created by nature, so when I was reading your post, I had no doubts why you would like to spend a lot of time in Blidinje, if you only could. Futhermore, I'm huge fan of facts about famous places over the world, so it was really lovely to get to know something about that river, it had to be even more impressed when you see it on live :)
    Have a great evening, Ivana :)

  32. Ovo mi izgleda kao neki modni editorijal u časopisima kad se model nađe tako negde gde nema nikoga i u prirodnom ambijentu. Što ja volim te pauze i slike koje nastanu negde na putu. Mnogo mi se sviđa slika gde si pokretu, baš je originalno i zanimljivo. Zapravo nema slike koja mi se ne dopada. Ti opet zračiš, a crna ti savršeno stoji. Verujem da je Neretva nešto posebno. Sada sam i naučila nešto novo :)

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
