Colorful and old streets of Labin – Croatia

Short days, long nights and low temperatures tend to slow down everything around us. Everything looks a little bit greyish and dirty, so it is easy enough to take 2-3 lazy days in the row and not feel any guilt about it.

Thinking about that and wanting to come out of that state I started to scroll through my library of photos to find something which will cheer up these cloudy days and give me some inspiration for February trips. While searching through the gallery two photos marked with 5 stars appeared to be wonderful for this “therapy”.

Sibenik – Small Croatian Town full of Wonder

Looking through the bus the outskirts of the city didn’t give a big promise for a great town. Rusty and old neighborhood gave an impression of a forgotten city between two big dalmatian centers. Split and Zadar are the places from which you can easily come to the Sibenik, there are a lot of flights to these towns and from there you can use a bus to your final destination. After arriving at a bus station everything looked much better. City has familiar Dalmatian design with a beautiful seaside hang-outs and quaint alleys and squares. In Croatian history is known as a city which is built and maintained by Croatians. Other cities like Split and Dubrovnik are founded by other cultures.

Weekend trip to Belgrade

Back home from yet another weekend trip. This time I was in Belgrade. Trip that I was wishing for last two years but never was a good time to actually do it finally happen. Ex-Yugoslavians biggest city and today capital of Serbia is the place where a lot of different cultures met and every one of them put some mark on it. I had about 32 hours to spend there so I didn’t find time to visit everything that I wanted but it was worth it.

October in my hometown – Mostar

It is October… The time of streets filled with a smell of baked chestnut, crunchy leaves, and cozy sweaters has finally arrived. Woods are dressing red and gold sweaters giving all the essence of the earth to be inhaled in one breath, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea. For me, this is the smell which gives me feel of the home. If someone writes a book of most beautiful pleasures on Balkan this would probably be one of the main topics in that book. Balkan Hygge, some would say.

Usually my hometown is known like a place with a lot of sunny days, but this year we got almost 12 days in a row under the clouds. As you expect I am not a big fan of it. Because, rain mixed with a strong wind is not giving a lot of time to spend outdoor or in a nature.
