I prefer to drink all kinds of green tea and you can make me with happy fresh ginger/mint as well🌿 As you can probably imagine, with a gorgeous backdrop like this, I was totally in my happy place.. • | Madison Restaurant, London
• Tulip paradise..❤️🌷 // Can you imagine being surrounded by thousands of vibrant, colorful tulips? ☺️ During Spring season, I always make sure to visit the bulb fields. They’re only in bloom for a very short period, so you need to plan your trip carefully. This time, @ishanaa4 & I went to the fields when the season had almost ended, but luckily we stumbled upon this one. Someone actually had to pinch me to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.. ;-) | Lisse, The Netherlands
• Hints of pink.. 💗 // Sooo, this week was my last week of class EVER! It’s still quite hard to believe my uni-life has almost come to an end after 5 years of studying. Only one more exam to go which I’ll be writing within 2 weeks.. In case you’re looking for me, I’ll prob be sitting behind my laptop surrounded by lots of articles, books & tea. 👵🏽 • | Notting Hill, London
• Take my hand and I’ll show you the world.. 🌸🐾 // Recently, I had the chance to visit Zijpe, which is home to one of the largest contiguous flowerfields in the world! Once a year, they organize an exclusive walking tour through the fields. Strolling alongside dozens of colorful flowers was absolutely an amazing experience I won’t easily forget 🙌🏾• | Zijpe, The Netherlands
• No matter how busy, hectic & stressful life can be, “𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘺𝘰𝘶..” 💗 // Just simply being in this station makes me want to pack my bags and travel somewhere far.

Imagine the following: turquoise water, charming marble streets, stunning medieval sights and ice-cream stalls on every corner… Yes, Trogir has it all. The medieval city centre of Trogir is on the UNESCO world heritage site and not without a reason. Its rich history & authentic architecture make this unique small town a true gem of Croatia. I visited this city in Summer and had a wonderful time. I had never visited Croatia before, but since it’s becoming a popular holiday destination day by day and I heard many good stories, we became curious. I must say, it went beyond my expectations. Let’s move on to the pictures!


 

– HOTEL –

 

During our trip, we stayed in Villa Carrara, a cute bed&breakfast hotel situated in the heart of the city centre. It only has 8 rooms, which makes it a quiet and relaxed place to stay. The staff was really friendly and provided us with a lot of insight information about the city. Even though the hotel was quite small, the rooms were surprisingly big! Also, there’s a bakery/ice-cream shop located on the ground flour, where we had some delicious treats.  All in all, a really good place to stay when you want to make to most out of your stay in Trogir.

The first thing I noticed from the moment we arrived in the city: the water. It was definitely something else. When Googling travel pictures online, you usually see “picture-perfect” stuff which many times doesn’t resembles reality. This wasn’t the case here. I often had to put my sunglasses down, just to check if what I was seeing was real…

– FOOD –

 

Food from Croatia has been influenced by many cuisines: mainly Italian, Turkish and Hungarian. This influence has shaped the type of food they are serving over the years. Since Trogir is located along the coastline, fresh seafood can be ordered in almost every restaurant (for me as a sea-food lover, this wasn’t a bad thing at all ;-)). We had seafood everyday: prawns, squid and local fish, it was all amazing. A typical local dish is ‘black risotto’, prepared with squid or cuttlefish. One of the things that surprised me was the number of ice-cream shops in the city. Even tough Trogir is a quite compact and small city, in one or another way there were always lines at the shops throughout the day. One explanation could be the fact that the ice-cream is divine: it came quite close to the gelato I had in Rome…

– THINGS TO DO –

It’s easy to explore Trogir in one day, so people usually end up planning a day trip. We decided to stay in the city for a few days and use it as our base to discover other places in the area. Here’s a list with activities/things you should definitely consider seeing or doing when you happen to be here. Here we go:

-Visit Kamerlengo Castle

-Get lost in the labyrinth of narrow streets (trust me, this is easy)

-Grab a drink on one of the terraces at Central Square

-Take a leisurely stroll at night at Trogir Riva, the promenade. In the weekend there are usually live-performances and you’ll spot all the big yachts

– Visit Green Market, and drool over the seriously good-looking fruits and veggies

-A must: try. the. ice-cream. You won’t be disappointed.

-Cross the bridge and go explore the beautiful harbor

When you’re planning to stay longer in the city just like I did, consider the following:

-A day trip to Split (!)

-Visit other islands/beaches close by (transportation is really convenient: there are lots ferry boats and tours you can easily book)

-Plan a trip to the magnificent Krka National Park
