I guess some of you are wondering why was I away for so long and maybe you even assumed that I was done with blogging. The truth is,I was dealing with some personal problems so I didn’t really want to blog. To cut things short; I’ve had lots of exams I had to take (some of them were really tough on me), I got ill from not taking care of myself and to top it all I found out that my boyfriend (of 6 years- yup, you’ve read it right) cheated on me with a girl that I know. After all that, my anxiety kicked in big time and I though I was going to end up in hospital. Luckily, I managed to pull myself together enough to pass the hardest exam I’ve had this year and then I postponed some other ones and decided to take a break. My family rented a gorgeous flat in a villa for few days so that we could rest a bit and recharge our batteries.
Now,let’s get to some more positive and more interesting things:
The place we visited is called Opatija and it is located in the western Croatia (three hour drive from where we live). It is a small coastal town that was founded before the 15th century and first mention in 1453 as a settlement of around 30 homes and a church (The Benedictine Abbey of St. Jacob). The town and the surrounding area was built in its etirety under the Austro-Hungarian empire. They built villas, hotels and most importantly a beautiful 12 km promenade called Lungomare. Not to bother you with any more history haha, I will show you some of the photos I took during our stay there.
This is the garden in front of the villa. We had a private exit to the promenade and the beach (it was amazing!) :

Just a small part of the Lungomare promenade and the sea:

I hope you enjoyed these photos and I hope that you don’t take it against me that I haven’t really read your blogs because I plan to compensate for it by reading them all at once 😀
Stay happy 🙂
