Five Things Friday: Aug 17

Hi Friends,

It’s been a beautiful week in Croatia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท Here are the highlights ๐Ÿ˜Š:


I found heaven on earth: it is called Lokram. This is an island just off of Dubrovnik which you can get to in only 10 minutes! โ›ต๏ธ This island is definitely the most magical island I have ever visited: castles, peacocks, bunnies, stunning views and so much nature! ๐ŸŒฟ You are only able to visit this island for the day as it is closed to the public by night. I definitely can’t wait to return as one day was simply not enough โœจ

Craft Beer & Canadians

On Saturday we visited Dubrovnik Beer Company! ๐Ÿป The week hovered around 35 degrees so there was nothing more refreshing than some delicious craft beer! ๐Ÿบ We ended up meeting some awesome Canadians from Vancouver who sat at the bar with us ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ I love meeting new friends!

Bungee Jumping!

On Sunday I faced my worst fear: heights/falling/BUNGEE JUMPING! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ You can watch my jump on Instagram. I never, ever, EVER thought I would bungee jump (and I’m pretty positive I have mentioned this is more than a few YouTube videos), but you know what!? I did it! Because as I have come to realize: fear is an illusion. It only has as much power as you decide to give it. So, as it goes, “Nothin to fear, but fear itself.” ๐Ÿ˜Š

Sunset Jetski

My favourite sunset in Croatia was this evening on the jet skis ๐Ÿงก It was an extremely adventurous day from off-reading to zip-lining to parasailing then to jet skiing, but this was by far the highlight of the day and the trip ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท The water was soft and so beautifully coloured, perfect for cruising and planting big dreams ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ There’s just something about the sea for me that makes me believe anything is possible โœจ

Sea Kayaking Along Castle Walls

On our last evening in Croatia Anastasiya and I went on a sunset kayak tour ๐ŸŒ… We kayaked around the old castle walls ๐Ÿฐ and along our favourite island Lokram! ๐ŸŒฟ Dubrovnik has quickly made it’s way to my Top 5 Cities list! What are yours? ๐Ÿ˜Š
