Croatia roundup

June 17, 2016


If you do follow me on Instagram, you have probably noticed that I’m back to Helsinki. The temperature/ weather difference came to me as a shock, it’s at least 10 degrees less than in Croatia and it’s been raining like crazy for the past two days. If it continues like this, I can kiss my “olive skin” tan away. 😀

Anyways, Croatia was amazing, the sun, sea and people made my soul and heart filled with happiness and gratitude. I didn’t knew how much I needed to recharge my batteries until I have arrived there and on the very first day have realised that all I wanted was to sit by the sea, in peace and just “be”.

My dear readers, whenever you can, go and travel, you will always return back home a different person than you were before you left on a trip. Travelling always makes you richer and gives so much closure on some things that are so important as well as make you dismiss those that are of no use/ good for you anymore.

Here’re few photos to roundup the final days of my trip. It’s FRI-YAY and I’m happy for the weekend to be here, some quality time will be spent with my daughter and close friends.

Have a great weekend sweethearts!

    What beautiful pictures Natalia! Can’t agree with you more about traveling and how much it changes you.
    Weather-wise it has been awful in Germany too!

      Thank you dear for commenting and compliment! I can imagine the annoyance by the weather, it’s almost mid Summer and it haven’t been a proper summertime weather yet in most of the Europe. 🙁

    That is a lovely photo of you and your daughter standing on the steps. And I am glad you have, still the broderie anglaise skirt. It is so pretty, so you. I hope you acclimatize to the cooler weather soon. Hugs

      Thanks a lot Jo! Yes, when I find some great pieces like this skirt, I really take care of them well and I also love to get a good use out of my clothes, instead of wearing them only once or twice.

    Ako ti išta znači, i ovdje je vrijeme totalno sranje, otkako sam se i ja vratila samo pada glupa kiša. Gdje je više to ljeto? Drago mi je da si se super provela i napunila baterije za nove avanture, jakooo sam sretna što smo se nakon sto godina ponovno uspjele vidjeti i nadam da ćemo uskoro to druženje uspjeti i ponoviti! <3

    • Reply natali karppinen June 19, 2016 at 8:23 AM

      Ma stvarno vise ne mogu s ovom kisom! Spasila sam se u Hr na neko vrijeme i onda “back to reality” i finsku verziju ljeta… Anyway, da, baterije su dobro popunjene tako da sam bas u dobrom kreativnom “usponu” hahaha. 😀 Meni je puno znacilo sto smo se vidjeti i ovaj put se moramo dog. da nam ne prodje ovako dugo vremena medju susretima… 😀
