TRAVEL, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA

Welcome to Mostar. One of the most visited places in Bosnia & Herzegovina, famous for its beautiful architecture, natural beauty, and the world famous Stari Most. Up until the 19th century Mostar was under the Ottoman Empire which resulted a large portion of the architecture and culture of Mostar to be greatly influenced by it. The famous Stari Most was built  during the Ottoman Empire ruling. Mostar is a charming city, I immediately fell in love with its cobble streets, stone houses, the beautiful views and cute shops and restaurants. I only stayed in Mostar for a day, but I think it was enough to see the most famous landmarks and experience Mostar.

RAFTING ON CANYON TARA

Last weekend I went to Bosnia and Herzegovina for the famous rafting experience on the river Tara and Drina in the Canyon Tara. And it was a very wonderful experience. I have been wanting to go since last year but kept postponing it and then summer came and the waters are slow so I had to leave it for next year. Canyon Tara is famous for its white waters which are perfect for rafting. Also, Tara Canyon is the deepest canyon in Europe and second deepest in the world after the Grand Canyon. 

LIFESTYLE

I am the type of person that loves writing everything down, planning every single thing and making lists (I think I have a list for everything starting from what to buy when grocery shopping to a perfume wishlist). I consider myself to be really good at time managment and able to multitask but also juggle multiple things at the same time, and big part of that ability has been using a planner/agenda. I’ve using one since I was in middle school and that’s one habit that I do not plan on ever changing. 

TRAVEL, PUERTO RICO

LIFE IN PUERTO RICO [PUERTO RICO TRAVEL GUIDE]

One of the perks of working remotely is the ability to work from anywhere in the world, as long as there is electricity and stable internet connection. So for a month together with my boyfriend we decided to live in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is located on the Caribbean, meaning that it has beautiful beaches and nature. Not that many people know, but Puerto Rico is an US territory, if you need a visa for the USA you will also need an US visa to visit Puerto Rico, for US citizens tho you only need your ID to visit Puerto Rico. The island is a fusion between American, Spanish and Caribbean culture, an island that has many things to offer from nature, to beautiful sandy beaches to wonderful historic sights.

 

TRAVEL, USA, CALIFORNIA

ULTIMATE CALIFORNIA TRAVEL GUIDE

Finally sitting down to write my travel guide for California. Spending two months in California was a perfect idea. In the two months there we did quite a lot of roadtrips through California and Nevada and got to see some really exciting places. If you read my first post from California you might recall that I wrote down a list of all the places I wanted to visit, although I didn’t manage to go everywhere (gotta leave something for next time, right?) but I did manage to go through a handful. 

TRAVEL, USA, NEVADA

WEEKEND TRIP TO LAS VEGAS

Las Vegas is definitely a must visit place in the USA. Although the first things that come up to mind of the mention of Las Vegas are gambling, casinos and hotels Las Vegas has more to offer besides those 3 things. And people that don’t gamble will be: Why would I want to visit this place? And in this travel guide I will show you that Vegas is much more than just a casino city and there are fun things to do and see.

WINTER READING LIST VOL. V

January is reserved for my winter reading list, this year is the 5th year in a row that I am publishing it. How crazy that it’s been 5 years already?! You can check my previous reading lists here. If you we’ve been following me for a while, you know my love for books and how much I love to read, so often times I share some of my favorite reads on Instagram with you guys, but I also like to make a list of books I think are worth adding on your 2022’s year reading list. In 2021 I read 42 books (probably the most I’ve read in a year). This year I am challenging myself to read 50, we’ll see if I can actually achieve it.

 

LIFESTYLE

Finally got around to write my year recap for 2021, I kept postponing writing the post and when I finally sat down to write it my keyboard stopped working properly so there was no way I could write it…but now I got myself a new laptop and I am ready to write my year recap of 2021. I love writing the year recap it gives me a nice visualization of everything that has happened in those 365 days, and I love going back and rereading my year recaps through the years, it brings back so many memories back, but they are also a reminder of how far I’ve come.
