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:
Visiting Hundertwasser house, Vienna, Austria ( I wrote about Vienna, but not about this place)
I love going to my local Tea Room with my best friend. This time I had a big bowl of hot chocolate 🙂
My Easter eggs and Easter cookies
Joyful in Stockholm, Sweden
The view of the beautiful city of Nice with its Promenade des Anglais and the beach…
This is the last beach snaps blog post. I published eight during this summer to show you some of my favourite beaches from last years. I’ve been to some pretty great beaches in Greece too but I don’t have those photos anymore. I hope you’ve enjoyed my beach photos. My first blogiversary is next week and I’m also co-hosting the monthly travel link up for September! If you haven’t noticed I also registered my domain so I’m now theredphoneboxtravels.com !:)

This photo was taken in October, 2009. I guess this beach is full of cheerful families on a warm summer day. Don’t you just love these colourful beach huts? I hear they’re quite expensive though. So what’s your favourite seaside town in England? Is the sea too cold for swimming? My last beach snaps post is due next week and then it’s back to business as normal e.g publishing city posts!:)
p.s. I’ve recently opened a Google+ account! Do join me there too!thanks:)

Mošćenička Draga, Croatia
A small fishing village near the town of Opatija which is the oldest seaside resort in Croatia. During the Austro-Hapsburg empire many aristocrats and royals frequented Opatija and the nearby town of Mošćenička Draga. Today it’s beach is popular with locals and tourists alike (there’s also a nudist beach).
Ps. I’m currently in a small Dalmatian village without access to the Internet so this is a scheduled post. I’ll reply to any comments next week!:)

In this photo you can see the famous Carlton Hotel at Croisette and the beach. Each part of the long sandy beach belongs to a certain hotel so you have to pay (a lot) for the sun lounger. But this part of the beach is public so you can stay here for free:) You can check my Cannes guide too if you want 🙂
P.S. It’s too hot to think properly so I’ll probably continue with my London posts in September. In the meanwhile you can enjoy my beach snaps and maybe I write something proper if I muster the strength to do it (it’s around 30° all the time). Luckily I can go to the beach to refresh;)
