Hello Summer Vacation!

Hello again Croatia! In the past 5 years I think we’ve been here 4 times already. So when our friends ask us where we’ll be going to spend our (hopefully first) summer vacation, they immediately say Oh, you’re Croatia fans. And I think we really are. And it’s strange, because there aren’t too many sandy beaches, and for a family with kid(s), you might expect to choose a different destination.

Well… Maybe next year – that’s what we always say. This year we’ll be spending our vacation on the Istia peninsula, “the best kept secret in Croatia”. We return to Croatia because every time we plunge into an awesome variations of hill towns and seaside villages, stone beaches and gorgeous rose gardens, not to speak about the absolutely delicious wine and olive oil.

Istria is all about the small towns, where you can still feel the Hapsburg influence… However, if you head down the coast of Istria, you’ll be discovering Istria’s Roman and Venetian history.

One of the other things I love about Croatia is food – I absolutely love sea food so I’ll be eating a lot of it, especially because on the seaside sea food always tasted better than at home. So clean eating, trying my best to keep on track with my 100 Days of Summer Challenge and do those 3 HIIT workouts that can be done on the beach. 🙂

I can’t wait to get back with a recap of the vacation, maybe will inspire you to try it too!

What’s your summer destination?

What do you prefer: vacation at the beach or in the mountains?
