• Where I’d rather be... 💙 • | Ugljan, Croatia
• On our full free-day, we planned a trip to Ugljan.. 🌊 This small island is situated in the area of Zadar, and it took us around 2 hours to get there (by foot, ferry, bus & more walking). When we finally reached the beach, I immediately knew it was worth the journey: the views were stunning. 💙Probably the best part was taking a dive into the crystal clear blue water (I’ve never experienced something like this before!). The least good part: the beach turned out to be super rocky and at one moment my sandle decided to break down, which resulted in a very painful walk back.. 😂🙈 • | Ugljan, Croatia
• Croatia has become one of my favorite holiday destinations in Europe.. 💛 Why? ➰The nature is outstanding: crystal clear water, diverse landscapes & even waterfalls.. what’s not to like? 😍 ➰Food is influenced by the Italian cuisine, which results in very interesting dishes (like black risotto!) Also, gelato shops can be found literally everywhere in the bigger cities ☺️ ➰ Prices are very reasonable in comparison to West-European countries! ➰ The country is becoming more popular these days, but it’s not over-crowded in my opinion. There are still plenty of hidden gems & places where you can come at ease 😌 Have you ever been to Croatia? And if so, what’s your favourite place/city? 😊 • | Zadar, Croatia
• Idyllic views... 💙 • | Ugljan, Croatia
• What I probably liked the most about attending a Summer Law School this year is the fact that I had the chance to meet 50 fellow students from 15+ countries all over the European continent. Even tho we all had at least one thing in common (our law-related background), conversations usually resulted in very interesting discussions. It was a pleasure hearing stories & experiences from different viewpoints. Also, many stereotypes were cleared up that week (Nope, A’dam is not only about weed 🧐) // 📸 picture credits to @carolinafigurska, I’ve had a blast exploring the city centre with you! Dziękuję bardzo 💋• | Zadar, Croatia
• 😱💙 (<— my facial expression during basically the entire busride from Zadar to Trogir) • | Primošten, Croatia

One of the ways to get into the ultimate Christmas spirit is undoubtedly visiting a good old  Christmas market. I went to one in Leiden in the late afternoon after a serious shopping session. The market is held for 13 days in December. Besides all the Christmas stalls, plenty of food/drink options & live performances, it’s possible to book a canal tour and even test your ice-staking skills. It’s situated in the city centre at the Nieuwe Rijn, and the most jaw-dropping part: it’s floating!  Yes you heard it right, they actually managed to install both the ice rink and the Christmas market in the canal. Pretty awesome, right? It’s the first floating market in Holland, and no worries, you won’t feel any movements 😉

and behold, everything is

softer and more beautiful…”

When entering the market around 4 pm, I felt like I’d arrived just in time. The sun began to set and all the lights slowly became more vivid and sparkly. Standing on the Koornbrug overlooking the crowds and sea of lights was absolutely a magical experience. As you can probably imagine, my photography-loving heart started to beat a lot faster…
