Croatia, summer 2017

Featured

Hi blog,

Miss you long time. Time for a recap I believe. These weeks have been busy. Been working, gymming and travelling.

I had my mini summer vacation (18th to 25th of August) and it was spent in beautiful Croatia with my mamma. We had talked about heading to Croatia for many years and finally we decided it would be this year. Destination was the island Brac (3rd biggest island size wise in Croatia). We stayed in a little city called Bol.

One of the reasons why I picked Bol and Brac, was because I wanted to visit Zlatni Rat. Sharing some photos from Bol. Water was crystal clear (really important for me :D) and the beaches were mainly stone beaches so remember the shoes or you can always buy some there for a reasonable price.

Once there, we signed up for some trips arranged by the travel agency. One of them took us around the Brac island. We went up to Vidova Gora which is the highest peak on the island. Offered the best view and it was truly spectacular to see Zlatni Rat and the islands around Brac from above.

Second trip we did was to Krka national park. Its one of the more popular spots in Croatia so it is quite crowded. However, the waterfalls are amazing. I haven’t really seen waterfalls like that before so it was an experience for me. Its too bad you can’t really swim under waterfalls there. On our way back we stopped at Trogir for while and got to walk around the little village there.

The trip was super nice overall and hope that I will return to Croatia. There are so many places left to visit there like Dubrovnik, Plitvice lakes, Hvar and many more.

Also managed to click this incredible sunset when we were at Split. Sky is on fire. How can we not be amazed by this earth we are living in. Important to be thankful and to remember that we are all blessed everyday.

On the road…or was on the road to Los Angeles meh.

Los Angeles was pretty great. Meaning, warm weather, food, nice houses, palm trees and Hollywood. Very chill atmosphere and it was also the last big city so we took it very cool and just enjoying driving around (a car in LA is a must). Seeing Malibu, Venice beach, Santa Monica, Rodeo drive and Beverly Hills is amazing.

Also went hiking up on Runyon Canyon which provides fantastic views over the city, same thing as Griffith Park and Mulholland Drive.

Some places to recommend for lunch or dinner in LA are Urth cafe and also Pizzeria Mozza.

We left the LA and drove along the coast line since we had to head to SF again to take our flight. On the way, we stopped by Monterey which is quite small Fishermans city. Also drove to charming Carmel-by-the-sea which I really liked.

In Monterey, eating seafood is a MUST. So delicious, the best I had. I ate at a place called Scales Seafood and Steaks.

After San Francisco, the plan was to head to warmer weather. We rented a Mustang and our destination was Las Vegas through Death Valley National Park. Really recommend to see Badwater Basin and Zabriskie Point.

In Las Vegas, I also took the opportunity to see Celine Dion live (!!!) at Colosseum, Caesars Palace :O. There are so many and different shows to choose from. I had troubles choosing between Celine Dion, Britney Spears and the Chippendales hihi :D. Had to go for Celine though.

IMG_0937.JPGAfter being in Las Vegas 3 days, we drove to experience Grand Canyon – such spectacular views. One fun fact – Arizona is actually one of those states that has decided not to follow daylight saving time.

After Grand Canyon, we head back to Las Vegas for a day. Before setting our destination to Los Angeles we also drove to see Hoover Dam. Always think of National Lampoon movie when hearing Hoover Dam :D.
