Life & blog update: October 2020…..was a less exciting month than September. However, we still had some fun. I read a bit, watched some films and series (Emily in Paris) and my husband and I had a couple of board games’ nights with friends.
My kids got sick last month, just common cold but still it’s a nuisance to get sick, especially in these times. Then, I got a tummy bug and had a miserable weekend. But we managed to have 3 outings with the kids last month. We went to Kastav (pictured above) and to Opatija and for a stroll by the sea.
My daughter had her first dentist’s appointment. She’s only got 6 teeth. She has also started to walk if you hold her hand (previously she was just walking if she was holding onto furniture). She can say cat which isn’t an easy word in Croatian language. My girl gives kisses too. Funnily, my son didn’t give kisses until he was about 2 years old. When you said give me a kiss, he would lean over to you and expect to be kissed on his forehead or cheek, he didn’t give a kiss 🙂 There are so many differences between my two kids. My son enjoys being at his new daycare. We had the first parents’ meeting and it was in Italian since it’s an Italian daycare. I am proud to say that I’ve managed to understand it all. My kids are getting along nicely now but of course there are the usual skirmishes because of toys.
There are really a lot of new corona virus cases in Croatia every day. I think we are now like Sweden in the spring when everyone was in lockdown and they seemed to be the only country doing business as usual. There are many measures enforced in Croatia but it doesn’t seem like there is going to be a new lockdown soon. But my best friend won’t come home for Christmas which made me very sad.
October was the best month in number of views/visitors to my blog this year. Actually, it was the best month since August 2019!!!! My traffic has decreased significantly this year which is understandable due to lack of travel and general lack of interest in travel because of Covid-19 situation. But to be honest you can’t expect a lot of traffic if you don’t post, right? I mean, I posted only once in June and in July whilst I published 6 blog posts in October.
I got interviewed by a fellow travel blogger Andy on his travel blog last month. You can check the interview here or click on the reblog below. You should definitely follow his blog, he has stories from all around the world.
How was your October? Are you in lockdown now?

Have a great November!
