Life and blog update: March… was the month we got back home after our short exile due to our bathroom renovation. Now we have a pretty bathroom and an empty bank account 🙂 I’ve finally made our travel plans too. The idea was to visit Krakow but I was reluctant to book the flight and the hotel because of several reasons. I didn’t like the idea of a long drive to the airport plus the flight times meant that we’d be away from our son for 5 full days which just seemed too long for the first time. I’ve been away for work several times already, usually for 2-4 days and my husband’s been away too and our toddler was fine but this would be his first time without both of us for a few days. So, that’s why despite my big wish to visit Krakow I decided to abandon that idea (for now) and try to find a better solution.
Et voilà, I came across extremely cheap flights for Berlin from a nearer airport. I was very happy with our change of travel plans because we’d still be going somewhere alone but for a shorter time which is really more convenient in a given situation. So, we’re leaving our boy with the grandparents and we’re off to Berlin this weekend for that last adventure before the second baby arrives. Last time I had a very relaxing babymoon but this time it’s going to be a short city break 🙂
Once upon a time….that’s how all great stories begin, right? I wonder what stories this tree could tell…

Life and blog update February 2019..And just like that another month has passed by. We spent most of the month at my husband’s parents because we had our bathroom completely renovated. It reminds me of a contemporary hotel bathroom now because we’ve put in a walk-in shower 🙂
Since we could leave our boy at the grandparent’s we had a pizza date night for Valentine’s Day, met up with some friends twice and we went to the cinema one weekend too.
Dreamy.…such a powerful word that conjures so many images to me. Images of seaside holidays, old castles, my beautiful son, my cat when he sleeps in the sun, my favourite chocolate and London. To me London has always been dreamy. But I chose this photo from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England as my answer to this Friendly Friday Photo Challenge:Dreamy. Why ? Because it’s just dreamy, isn’t it? And because it reminds me of the time of my life when I was full of dreams….
My dear friend from the Snow Melts Somwhere blog has launched a new weekly photo challenge Friendly Friday a few weeks ago. She’s hosting it with another great blogger from Something to ponder about blog. Every Friday one of them gives a prompt and this Friday the prompt was Dreamy. This photo is my answer to Snow’s prompt dreamy.
What does dreamy mean to you?

Lucca in Italy, I’ll blog about it eventually
Life and blog update January 2019..Yes, It’s already 2019! I was in Tuscany for New Year’s but I probably won’t blog about it because that was a work trip and because there are already several Tuscany blog posts here on my blog (you can check posts about Florence here and here and about Pisa here if you want). If I look back at January actually nothing much has happened except from…. well, you’ll find all about it later on;)
My husband went on his skiing trip with his mates to Austria and my
baby boy toddler and I had wild parties! Just kidding! My boy has grown so much recently. Probably, because he’s eating all the time! He seems to have an appetite of a wolf or a bear but he’s running everywhere all the time so he definitely spends all those calories. He likes playing with his Lego duplo toys too. Recently, my boy spent the night at his grandparent’s. And he was fine!
2018 on the Red Phone Box travels was an interesting year. 2017 was a year that I got pregnant and didn’t really travel. In 2018 we travelled for the first time as a family with our baby boy. Nevertheless, there was a significant decrease in the number of proper travel posts but this is still a travel blog. Of course, my main focus was/is my baby boy V. who’s now 14 months old. He’s my excuse for the lack of motivation to write about my travels. However, my baby has already travelled a fair bit. I’m not an expat so there was really no need for long-haul flights to visit the family but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t want to travel with my baby. We just did it differently.

Life and blog update December 2018: As usually on December 1 I opened my chocolate advent calendar. This year I got an expensive one from Lindt 🙂 Last year we celebrated first Christmas with our baby boy V. and took him to the Christmas markets for the first time. It was also quite easy to just put him under the Christmas tree and take Christmas photos. However, this year it was quite another thing to try to take photos of my baby boy wearing his elf costume..
Of course, we participated in several Christmas events in December. We went to the Christmas markets in Rijeka and to Trsat castle. The Christmas lights were really spectacular this year. My husband and I attended the New Year’s Concert at the National Theater. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a number of years and I finally ticked it off my bucket list this year!
