beautiful tiles on the houses in Lisbon
You said tiles? Tiles immediately remind me of our honeymoon in Portugal five years ago :). We spent a wonderful week in Lisbon and explored the surrounding area as well. We have even visited the National Tile Museum to admire some very colourful Portuguese tiles.
Dubrovnik or now widely known as the King’s Landing from the Game of Thrones TV series is a spectacular, walled ,old town on the southern Adriatic Coast of Croatia. Dubrovnik was a powerful independent merchant Republic in the history and fought against the Ottoman Empire and the Venetian Republic. Everyone should visit Dubrovnik! However, much as Venice or Barcelona, it has become too popular among tourists so my advice is to visit Dubrovnik off-season, in spring or fall or even in the dead of winter. There’s so much culture and history in this gorgeous city but there are also beaches and fine restaurants. So, if you haven’t already visited Dubrovnik let this post convince you to experience Dubrovnik.

Once upon a time….that’s how all great stories begin, right? I wonder what stories this tree could tell…

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?

Another year and another edition of my 12 months & 12 photos post:) A photo for each month of the year. Of course, the main person of the entire year was/is my baby boy V. but as you can see below I didn’t just put photos of my baby:) We took a couple of interesting trips in 2018 and even though I haven’t blogged yet about them all at least you can see some nice photos:) You can check the posts for 2017 and 2016 too if you wish so:)
This was my 2018 in 12 photos:
My baby boy V. was two months old in this photo. I can’t believe he’s 13 months old now!!
This is a photo from the International Carnival Parade in Rijeka, Croatia.
It’s very rare to snow in my seaside hometown but this year it snowed on 1 March! The snow stayed on the ground only for a few hours but it was nice while it lasted.
We took our first day trip abroad with the baby in April. We explored Udine in Italy. It was a rather pleasant day trip and yes, I actually blogged about it.
Last year I published an overview of my year in 12 photos. One photo for each month of the year. I decided to do it again this year. However, this was a much different year because I finally got pregnant and welcomed my baby boy last month:) So happy! But that meant that I didn’t travel much. Actually there was only one trip abroad in the whole year and that was a day trip! I know, very pitiful for a travel blogger. Though there were plenty of local day trips and a very lovely babymoon.
So this is my 2017 in 12 photos:
My husband and I spent a few very cold days in his parents’ summer house on the island Krk. The whole place was virtually deserted so we went for a walk by the sea and we played board games at home.
I did a course for a tourist guide and got my licence later on. One of the places we visited during that course was the tiny town of Osor on the island Cres. I meant to post about it to continue my Discover Croatia series but life got in the way.
This has been a very difficult year in more ways than one. Nevertheless, there have been many happy moments, though most of them were associated with travelling. Since 2016 is almost over I decided to show you my 2016 through 12 photos taken in the last 12 months. It wasn’t easy to choose photos for some travel-filled months because I had plenty of choice while for the others I struggled to find a single photo.
So, here you are, a selection of 12 photos to show you my 2016:

I love going to my local Tea Room with my best friend. This time I had a big bowl of hot chocolate 🙂
