It’s ok because I’m returning. Enjoy this beautiful cieling of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele – one of the oldest (and most beautiful) shopping mall’s in the world. We took a trip here after visiting the cathedral before heading to Bar Luce.
It was a bit tourist overload, Venice. However a trip to the island of Burano and I felt like I was walking in a postcard. Known for its lace and brightly coloured houses, a day spent wandering around here is what holidays are meant to be. Strolling over the bridges, finding the house that matches what you’re wearing, eating 3 ice creams in a row……..it was that kind of day.
I’m sure Slovenia is absolutely lovely but a guy broke into our Air Bnb in the middle of the night so it’s made me really scared of it. Ha. We stopped in Ljubljana and it was such a lovely change from all the busy cities we’d been sight seeing in. With the river passing through, there were so many nice bars, restaurants and so many sweet nick-nack shops my eyes went into overdrive at the cuteness. We stopped by Metelkova – a squat! But full of art, installations, galleries, jazz and artist’s studio spaces. Amazing to walk around.
AKA where I left my heart. Croatia was incredible. From visiting the national park Krka and catching a boat across a lake to swim around the waterfalls to the Plitvice Lakes which were just out of this world (these photos really haven’t been edited that much). Days spent with crystal clear water, lots of green and swimming – the dream. Our final day we caught a ferry to an island, after missing the one bus a day that takes you to the beach, we changed tactics and walked around the side where we were the only people. Setting up our picnic on the rocks, we jumped in and swam with fish.
And so I finish this post with tears in my eyes, take me baaaaaaaaaaaaack. Today I was sat in the uni library in my summer break still wearing my pyjama top doing work.
If anyone’s interested on doing a bit of travelling, would anyone fancy some posts how we (or Naomi!) did so cheap, what air bnb’s we used and things like that? Let me know!
