Istria... between Sky and Sea!

To enjoy this post you should listen to my MUSIC playlist :), it will take you on a beautiful journey!



After every holiday that I spend surrounded by nature, I am relaxed and the emotions are so strong is difficult to recall them...

My photos don’t make justice to the beautiful sensations Istria provoked in me. My camera is not good enough to photograph such awesome place. My words are just weak compared to the feelings inside...

**********

Well, as some of you know, we went to Italy this past weekend for some documents. After doing the necessary documents we decided to do a road trip towards Istria. I didn’t have idea of how the place would look like. I googled Istria pictures but still, I didn’t have a concrete idea about the beauty of the Adriatic coasts of Croatia peninsula.

We started the journey from the picturesque Vicenza...

...drove through the beautiful forests of Slovenia - I tried to take photos but they didn't come well ;(...
After six hours of driving, we arrived descending from the hills of Opatija. The city is stunning, perfectly situated, over looking the sea.

As true adventurous we didn't book our hotel. We drove through the city and soon we saw a sign for available rooms. We parked went to enquire if they were accepting guests. They allowed us to stay for the night ;). In the morning we discovered that the house is located in one of the hot spots of Opatija - looking straight over the sea. At this time of year the city is nearly empty because the real tourists start coming in March. Many hotels are still closed because of this reason - it is the best time for those who want to enjoy the place without the noise of rich tourists. We normally stay in comfortable places but not too luxurious because money matters :), plus we went there to be able to enjoy the beauty of Croatian nature around us.

I was in love with the sky!
The clear sea that seems to call you to jump in! I am telling you "I am still speechless for the pure beauty of the place...!"

My heart is full and satisfied.

People looked at me because I think they don't see Black people often, but I was oblivious, because I was there for the nature.

Thank you lovelies for your kind words - one day we might go on holiday together :)!
