I can’t believe how fast time flies by! We’ve been neglecting this blog regarding the travel posts but we decided to get better at that. And yes that means we still have like a bunch of travel, both digital and analog, posts to share from even our Italy 2015 roadtrip. It’s crazy to think that, but we decided to still post it since we loved that trip so much! So prepare for a lot of travel posts in the next few months :). And we’re already planning our next roadtrip(yaaaay!). But we’re starting today with an analog wandering type of post with photographs from our last year’s seaside trip to island Krk in Croatia.
We’ve both been to Croatia numerous times(as probably most of people from Slovenia) so we don’t really look at it the way we look at a trip to Italy or somewhere else we haven’t been. We might even take it a bit for granted and not seeing it from a tourist point of view where everything is oh so gorgeous and beautiful and amazing. We still love it, but being there so many times makes us more used to it. However it’s been a while that we’ve been to Croatia before this seaside trip, probably around 3 or 4 years since to be honest we’re not(or we at least thought) that seaside people(or to be honest we got a bit tired of going to the seaside each year and wanted to spend our money on other trips). But everything changed when we got Zoja. She is a water dog and seeing her so happy in the water(she actually jumped in a lake at three months old and started swimming like it’s something that she does everyday – it was the cutest thing!) we knew a seaside trip will have to happen. It was not possible during her first summer since we had to get her vaccinated for rabies(she can’t cross the border without that and she had to be at least 6 months old) and between that any her spaying operation there was sadly no time for a trip. But it meant being even more excited for last year’s trip.
We decided for Krk because it’s close and we didn’t want to drive for the whole day(it’s just a 4 hour drive away), it has a lot of shade and secluded beaches and even though it’s an island you don’t have to take a ferry because there is a bridge connecting it to the mainland. It’s the perfect option! We found a beautiful apartment in a little town called Dobrinj and with a bit of advice from my parents about the best secluded beaches we found the perfect one where we were almost alone. And it was the most perfect few days spent with the little bear! She loooooved it so much that we’re making this a yearly(or maybe even a biyearly) trip. Yaaay! We’re actually going back in 10 days and i’m so excited for this trip, because just seeing Zoja so happy makes my heart happy.
So for last year’s trip we decided not to take any photographs with our DSLR camera, just with phones and GoPro, however i shot a roll of film during our evening walks and i love these images below. It reminded me that no matter how many times you visit a certain place/country there are still things and views that are gorgeous. I posted a bunch of Instagram photographs during the trip and there was a comment from someone saying that she’s been to Krk a few times, but she never knew how gorgeous it looked until she saw those photographs on my Instagram profile. And i found that comment a perfect representation of what was going through my mind. Isn’t it great when you don’t expect to find anything special, but when you start looking you just can’t seem to stop finding pretty things and view. It’s all a matter of perspective! Have a great weekend!
