Five Things Friday: July 20

Hi Friends!

It’s been another beautiful week in Croatia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท Here are the highlights ๐Ÿค—


This is my beautiful friend Michelle and her daughter Iva! Finally we got to meet up in Europe after years of talking about it (even before I made the move over here myself ๐Ÿ˜‹). We had great times together relaxing in Croatia and of course watching the game! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ What an experience!


Drone Pilots ๐Ÿš

This is my little drone pilot Livija ๐Ÿ’› She is definitely one of the highlights of my week! Sometimes we all need to be a kid again and as I mentioned last week this was also a theme. After the devastating loss of my friends just prior to leaving for Croatia I told myself this trip is going to be all about living in the moment, exploring and finding imagination, creativity and play again. Thank you to little Livija for really reminding me what it means to be a kid again ๐Ÿ˜Š



Brinje is a beautiful town about half hour in from the Coast in Northern Croatia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท It was a long bus ride up the coast and inland after getting off the MedSailors boat in Split, but so worth it! The nature, the tranquility and of course the quality time spent with amazing people made this a highlight of my trip and overall time in Croatia ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿงก If you’re looking for a relaxing place to be in nature, Brinje is it! I slept better here than I have in months ๐ŸŒฟโ˜€๏ธ


World Cup Celebrations

I returned to Split from Brinje late afternoon on Tuesday and these were the sights! ๐Ÿ’ฅ The city was still in high spirits celebrating Croatia’s second placement in the World Cup! โšฝ๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰ You can see there is so much pride in this photo – the atmosphere was incredible. I am happy I got to experience this accomplishment for the Croatia and take in the sights, sounds and energy. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท


Two Nights in Split

I spent two nights in Split by myself this week before boarding my flight back to Rome ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น (yesterday evening). This was just what I needed ๐Ÿ˜Š As you know I am very comfortable with solo travel. I find it very rewarding, reflective and relaxing. If you have not yet visited Split it is a very special place built up and around an ancient Roman Palace – you feel transported in time ๐Ÿฐ I can’t wait to share my travel diaries with you from my trip โ˜€๏ธ I am excited to dive into inspiring editing mode this weekend ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ More YouTube content from me very soon!
