a day trip to Dvigrad ruins
Life and blog update: July 2019….was a very hot month. It’s not easy to endure a heatwave when pregnant 8 and a half months! I spent some time at the beach chasing after my 20 months old boy. We attended a medieval festival in Istria which was lots of fun (link below).
What else happened in July? We went to see our friends’ new kitten. Oh, I forgot how tiny kittens are. Our 6 year old cat is quite big;)
We visited this beautiful castle in Karlovac, Croatia at the beginning of June
Life and blog update: June 2019…. was a month of local travel &adventures 🙂 We finally went on a proper day trip with our boy after a long time. We visited beautiful Dubovac Castle and had lunch with friends. Surprise, surprise I already blogged about it.
I’ve met up with an old friend. We were best friends growing up but then we drifted away and recently we’ve gotten in touch again. She’s got a baby girl so she handed me down all her small clothes for my baby girl. Is it customary in your part of the world to get used baby clothes from friends&family, from older kids? It’s quite common (and useful) here.

Life & blog update : May…was a kind of an ups&downs month…from birthday celebrations to a funeral and a wedding. But that’s life!
I blogged about our weekend trip to Berlin in April. It was really a great trip and just what we needed before our baby girl arrives at the beginning of September. I hope to blog about our last year’s trip to San Marino with our boy (I posted only two photo posts , I didn’t write about sights).
Alexander platz in Berlin, Germany
Life & blog update : April.. was an exciting month for sure. My husband and I visited Berlin for a weekend. It was our first trip without our toddler. We’ve had lots of fun and we’ll definitely be back for some more exploration of Berlin. Hope to blog soon about our weekend but for now you can check my photo post of Berlin (link below ).
Last month we’ve also found out that our second baby is a girl! So exciting!!:) I’m still feeling quite all right, no major pregnancy problems apart from my growing baby bump and the lack of choice in my wardrobe. And I’m starting to get excited about all the pink, glittery girly clothes 😉
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 🙂

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.
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!
