• 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

Endless bulb fields & vibrant-coloured tulips, a nature-photographer’s dream…                           

To get the ultimate Spring feelings once a year, I usually pay a visit to Lisse. From April to May, Lisse literally turns into flower paradise and is also known as Holland’s flower-growing region. Dozens of bulb fields are in full bloom, which makes it an incredible spectacle to watch. Also, since flower park Keukenhof is opened during Spring season as well, hundreds of thousands tourists visit the park every year. This time, my sis & I made our way to the fields on a sunny Friday evening…

Planning a trip to Lisse? Let me share some tips:

-Since the flowers are in bloom for only a short period (around April-May), be sure to check if you’re going during the right time to avoid awkward disappointments.

-If you’re visiting this region for the first time, I recommend going to Keukenhof. It’s very accessible by car/bus and the park is a great way to get introduced to all the beautiful flowers, get more background information and spend a full day with family/friends.

-If you’ve been to Keukenhof already or want to see the real deal, plan a trip to the bulb fields! If you don’t own a car, an easy way to visit the fields is by bike (I’m sure you can find lots of places where you can hire them).

-Before you go, double-check where you can find the fields on Google Maps/other sites, so you won’t be disappointed and lose time if you can’t find them when you solely navigate  to Lisse. Not all of them are easy to find!

-The fields belong to their respected owners, so be sure to treat them with care. That means: never pick any flowers without permission and be as careful as possible if you want to go close to the fields. Not all the fields are accessible and some of them have prohibitory signs in front of them, so make sure act in accordance with the rules.

-Pro-tip: golden hour in the fields is absolutely magical!
