Sights to see, Places to visit (Mali Ston, Croatia) / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, mjesta za posjetiti (Mali Ston, Hrvatska)

Remember the Ston Walls I told you about? Well, they connect the Ston city with this nearby village that is called Mali Ston (meaning little Ston).  This village is only about a kilometer and half away from Ston city so you can basically walk there from Ston (or drive two minutes if you don't like walking). Little Ston (Mali Ston) is quite famous for its oysters and seafood. If you decide to dine here, you must try the oysters and/or mussels.  As you will see on these photographs, the oysters are farmed here so obviously they don't get any fresher than this. As I mentioned in my previous post, I was here on an unplanned trip for the first of May. In retrospective, my only regret was not taking a swimsuit. The sea was quite warm and the local beaches looked quite inviting. The Adriatic is very calm here. Truth be told, if I could afford a vacation, this is the place I would choose. I always felt at home in Dubrovnik area. I could even say that I love every part of Dalmatia equally. It all feels like home to me.

Sjećate se stonskih zidina o kojima sam vam govorila? One povezuju grad Ston s ovim obližnjim selom koje se zove Mali Ston. Samo mjesto je samo oko kilometar i pol udaljeno od Stona tako da možete praktično prošetati do tu iz Stona (ili se voziti dvije minute ako vam se ne da šetati). Mali Ston je poznat po svojim kamenicama i morskim plodovima. Ako se tamo odlučite jesti, morate probati kamenice ili/i dagnje. Kao što ćete vidjeti na fotografijama, kamenice se ovdje uzgajaju tako da ne mogu biti svježije. Kao što sam spomenula u prošloj objavi,  ovdje sam bila na neplaniranom izletu prvoga svibnja. U retrospektivi, žao mi je što nisam ponijela kupaći. More je bilo poprilično toplo, a okolne plaže su jako privlačno izgledale. Ovdje je Jadran jako miran. Da si mogu priuštiti ljetovanje, odabrala bi ovo mjesto. Uvijek sam se osjećala doma u tom području oko Dubrovnika. Zapravo bih rekla da volim svaki dio Dalmacije. Cijela regija mi daje taj neki osjećaj da sam kod kuće.

  9. How cute that the neighboring village to Ston is called Little Ston. The village looks so quaint and idyllic. A nice location for an unplanned trip for sure. Next time you'll just have to plan ahead and bring your bathing suit so you can enjoy the sea as well :)

  10. Great photo-report of Mali Ston, dearest Ivana! I love seafood very much, but I've never tried oysters. May be I would try it there. I can hardly believe that the water was so warm: We had a cold (or cool and uncomfortable...) day here today and it was raining sometimes...
    Hugs from here, Traude

  12. Hi Ivana :) Thank you for sharing these photos and your opinion about Mali Ston - you did great post, dear. What's more, I'm not huge fan of seafood in general, but if I'd have opportunity to be there someday, I'd try everything, what you recommend for sure, because if Mali Ston is famous because of seafood, the one conclusion is that seafood from that place has to be really delicious :)
    Take care, dear :)

  15. Looks like an idyllic place, Ivana. I love fresh oisters, haven't had any in a long time, or so it seems. Now my mouth is watering, girl, lol. Beautiful photos, btw. Unplanned trips are often the most excited ones.

  21. There is so much beauty and charm - in both the natural surroundings, in the town and in you! Love the ruffles of your blouse and gray tights (perhaps my fave hue)!

    You live in such an incredible part of the world, so charming. I watched a program not so long ago about Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and all former Yugoslavia countries, and among other towns, there were Split and Mostar, and I was hoping to see you on the streets! :)

    (You can find it on Youtube by the way, look for Rick Steves, he is a well known travel author and the host of his own travel program for many years, and he is local, lives just a few miles from us.)

  23. I have a feeling I'll love Little Ston cos I'm a seafood lover, oysters and all. The waters look calm and beautiful although I'd not be swimming there. I'm petrified of water shame on e but I don have cute bathing suit. Hopefully you have yours on your next visit you can enjoy taking plunges there.

    You look lovely. I love a cute mini skirt with a great fit and yours is all that and more. You know what else I love? The effortlessness of the look with the jacket tied around your waist. Very cool!

    Hope your weekend is going great Ivana.

  24. Dear Ivana, I see it was really a pity you didn't take your swimsuit with you as it looks so inviting to have a bath there! In general I see it is a lovely place and I do understand your wish to have vacation here. Hopefully your wish comes true!
    And now I wish to have that fresh seafood you mentioned as I miss such food definitely here in Bavaria :)
    And I love you in your mini skirt!

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
