Colors of Dubrovnik


I still experience post-vacation withdrawals whenever I see my photos from Europe, Dubrovnik in particular. I just have to live through this for a couple more months I guess.


But anyway, here's another set of photos from our short Croatian getaway. Chezka and I woke up really early to beat the crowd and take photos at the Stari Grad. Right after, we checked out the "morning market" where locals setup stalls and sell their homegrown/handmade products like tea, soap, liquor, candies, etc. It's a great place to buy souvenirs actually because the products are a lot cheaper compared to the regular souvenir stores. We're both a little crazy when it comes to souvenir shopping because in Filipino culture when one travels abroad, everyone back home expects that person to bring back home something for each person and it's mandatory (or that's how they make you feel like). We still kinda keep up with that tradition so we were ticking of names off our mental list of people to bring back "pasalubong" to.




After the market, we had brunch before heading out to the beaches at Lapad for some much needed R&R. We rented a cabana at the private resort Copacabana and just lounged all afternoon. Well, lounged, swam, slept, ate, and then repeated that until we had to go back to the old town for dinner. 


Gosh, I can't tell you how much I loved laying under the sun and getting baked. When we left Lapad, I was as red as a lobster. But I had that glow on my skin that I haven't seen in a long time, at least since I was sixteen and was living a wild high school life back in the Philippines where I used to go to the beach a lot, and I realized I missed that. I don't go to the beach so often anymore so being at one of the most pristine beaches in Europe just felt right.




There's so much for photos that I want to share with you all from this trip but they would be for another post. Meanwhile, I leave you with these and if you haven't already, do watch the short video that I put together and uploaded on the youtube channel!


Enjoy the rest of the week, ya'll!

  1. The photos are lovely! I just started my summer break but I'm not going anywhere on vacation which kinda makes me sad because I really wish I could experience a different culture and relax for a bit but oh well. I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation, it seems like it was amazing.
