Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Split is beautiful! I love it’s old town, the nature around, beautiful white-green hills on the background, gorgeous water and it’s ambience! After arriving from Zadar i had almost full day to check main sights. Of course, old town, which is remains of Diocletian palace from 3rd century and UNESCO World heritage Site is the […]

Visiting Kornati national park is very popular day cruise from Zadar. I saw some pics before going and thought that it could be nice idea to visit it. To be true, i don’t like it and probably it’s not something that i can recommend. Not because the park is bad, but mostly because the only […]

IMG_20170621_160010_326

Zadar beaches, cafes and sunset are probably the main reasons to come for many people. Most of the beaches in the area are rock, but there are couple of sand beaches 10-15 km away from city centre. I checked one beach, which was closer and need to be honest, it’s not special. What surprised me […]

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Slovenia definitely made it to the top3 countries in my current journey! I had high expectations about it, but it was even better! Big surprise for the country, which is so confusing to remember, which was part of so many other countries for a long time and got 2 millions of citizens. But from the […]

As i had so busy days last couple weeks, i just need some rest and doing nothing before moving next. So today I’m doing nothing in the beautiful calm atmosphere of Koper, chilling, sunbathing, drinking wine and eating my dayly dose of prosciutto, baget, cheese and olives. That’s my version if Mediterranean diet! If you […]

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Portoroz is probably the most famous beach town in Slovenia and the only one with little sand beach. Today i decided to check it. All 45 km of coast are well connected by regular local busses, so going between main towns is very easy and hardly takes more than 40 minutes. Portoroz itself is classical […]
