Small and cosy – Omiš, Croatia 

I could be all Wikipedia here and talk about the history but you can google it yourself. I don’t wanna be boring or stiff. I’m looking through my eyes 😀

What is fascinating for me is mountains and hills of pure stone with here and there some bushes and trees. The story is that mountain Velebit is naked because Italians took all the trees for making Venice. Venice is built on trees of Velebit. I got to say I’m not too happy about it and part of me is screaming- Get our trees back! How dare you?!

A gorgeous view of mountain over Omiš and river Cetina going to the sea. Beautiful view to people who actually live here. Very colorful and sunny.


Going to the sea, church in the distance. Absolutely beautiful. Completely opposite side than the first picture. A big parking place is on the right which is awesome (and safe) because you can park any car sizes and just walk around the whole city.


From the middle if the city you raise up and climb on the top of the castle to see the whole area not just city. Got to me honest it was +45 Celsius and I just wasn’t in the mood to climb all to the top. Hehe! So before I reached the top I was satisfied with this view deep in the shade.  I’m not collapsing of heat for any photo. 😝

I hope you’re having a great week! Please follow for more 😄

Calling of the sea – Portorož, Slovenia

Maybe because I was born on the sea and now I’m living far away from it, every visit to the sea is so precious to me. The color, smell, boats, seagulls, sound of the waves, – everything, I love it. I don’t mind to admit I was spoiled and grown up on one of the most clean sea and beaches in the world, Croatia 😀 I would rather just stay in the shade than be in dirty lake/sea.  That’s how we are 🙂

If only pictures could bring smells and warm temperatures to you! I guess you just have to visit 😉 so hurry, the summer is here!

Warm sun and super clean sea! What else do you sometimes need? 😀 I hope this picture will bring you some if you currently don’t have it! 🙂

Happy Labor day! I hope you are having a lot of delicious food and that you are relaxing somewhere with your family in the nature or at least close to the sea!

Smell of the summer – Portorož, Slovenia

These mornings are the best! Getting out of hotel which is 3 steps away from the sea and taking a nice relaxing walk when there is no need for heavy jackets and whatnot winter equipment. Looking at the sea and feeling the warmth of the sun makes me realize how much I hate winter, hate it with passion.

Looking at the sea reminds me of my view of the sea where I grew up. Every time I would look outside I would see the sea.

Streets of Split, Croatia – coffee culture

It’s a cloudy day and out of tourist season SO that means not a lot people are drinking coffee and socialize outside. Croatia is known by the coffee culture and big NO to quick drinks of coffee to go! Make that a big HELL NO to coffee to go! 😀

So when you are in Croatia, order a coffee, sit with your friends for at least 3-4 hours and chat looking at the sea and people passing by. 😛

Split, Croatia When you walk somewhere in Split you have to pass here . Usually on a sunny day a lot of people during their coffee and chat.

Angry sea or “just” Bora

The area where some of the strongest bora winds occur is the Velebit mountain range in Croatia. This seaside mountain chain, spanning 145 kilometers, represents a huge weather and climatic divide between the sharp continental climate of the interior, characterized by significant day/night temperature differences throughout the year, and the Adriatic coast, with a Mediterranean climate. Bora occurs because these two divided masses tend to equalize.

Oh that Bora! Scary and strog, making the waves even scarier. I really wouldn’t like to live on an island when a “normal” 140km/h Bora blows.

Who can blame the sea for being angry at us? If I was mother-nature I would also be angry looking what people do.

bora, sea, scary, wave
Bora! The changeable Bora can often be felt all over Dalmatia, Istria, the Slovenian Littoral, Trieste, and the rest of the Adriatic east coast. It blows in gusts. The Bora is most common during the winter. It blows hardest, as the meteorologist Baron Ferdinand von Wrangel explained it by extending Julius Hann’s explanation of Alpine katabatic winds to the north Adriatic, when a polar high-pressure area sits over the snow-covered mountains of the interior plateau behind the Dinaric coastal mountain range and a calm low-pressure area lies further south over the warmer Adriatic.

I’m still trying to figure out how you photograph waves, hmm, my first try.

Rain is coming

There is something about looking at the sea before rain. It’s so dark that even in shallow place it looks deep and dangerous. It makes you think how nature has definitely the upper hand on us and it needs to remind us.
