Croatia: The Hidden Beauty of the Coast

This article originally appeared in Hayo Magazine

The Istrian coast is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. With Croatia’s uncertain history, it seems almost impossible that the country could harbour something so stunning. Rovinj, Poreć and Pula define the coastline and share a rich history – and this is where we were.

We stepped off the boat onto the Rovinj dock and cast our eyes towards the old town on the water. The pastel pinks and yellows of the buildings stood in stark contrast to the bright blue water.

  • The John Lewis Christmas ad has dropped so it’s officially Christmas now, right?!

This year’s character is #excitableedgar and I’m feeling torn. They’ve nailed the emotional side of things and it definitely brought tears to my eyes, but it didn’t feel all that Christmassy. I don’t know if it was the setting, the message, but really, it could be for any time of the year and for any event.

I’ve shared it in my stories if you’re interested and you’ve not seen it yet, plus a poll to see what everyone thinks.

We’ve got the Christmas light switch on this evening, so combined with the ad going live this AM, I’m taking that as a clear indication from the world that it’s perfectly acceptable to put my tree up this weekend 🙌 —

  • WHY IS IT SO COLD?! 🥶 —
Ugh, I am not impressed. If you’re in a warm place and want me to come live with you, please shout out. Will happily cook and clean for a warm living...

On another note, day 3 of the new routine has gone well 💪 and I’m currently working on my Cardiff blog(!)

  • It’s starting to get just that little bit colder at the moment which tells me Christmas is definitely coming but I’m not enjoying being cold *take me somewhere warm(!)*

I’m trialling a new process to help with the blogging which involves getting up earlier in the morning...a 5.10am alarm is acceptable, right?
—
It’s day 2 of 2 and I’ve only managed it once so we’ll see how long this lasts...

Are you an early bird when it comes to getting things done? Or are you more of an evening owl?

  • Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans?
—
We’re going to be heading to the Winchester Bonfire Night tomorrow and then probably taking it easy on Sunday. We’ve had a busy few weekends the last couple so looking forward to taking some time out 😍
—
It’s also gotten a lot colder in the last 48 hours and I’m not happy about it. There was frost out this morning which is a sign of things to come and I hate being cold 😭

PHOTO: a rare photo with my Stepmum on the Dittmer Bruecke in Bad Fallingbostel. It was so nice to see family last weekend (especially as we hadn’t visited in over 2 years!)

We spent a long weekend visiting my Dad in Germany and had a great time. It was pretty chilled with loads of movies but we managed to squeeze in a few activities.

Here’s some highlights from the local Jahrmarkt which takes place every year. It’s just a little fun fair with a few rides, good food, and - my Dad’s favourite - a pub trailer 😂
