It took me a century to finish this but it’s finally here. The little vacation vlog I promised from my vacation on the island of Krk is here. I didn’t think it would be quite as long as it turned out but I hope you will enjoy it and that this could be a fun new thing we do on the blog from now on since I am obviously lacking creativity in writing… but I promise that I am working on it!
My vacation has ended yesterday and on Monday I am going back to work. It has really been a wonderful few days, I also celebrated my birthday yesterday. It was so hard to leave Punat after days of sunbathing, swimming, eating out in restaurants and chilling.
I will begin working on the videos I took during the vacation this weekend but since I am very much new at this, it will probably take me some time to make a nice video for you to show what the island of Krk is like and to show you what the Croatian seaside looks like. Also, I am not a pro at this so the videos didn’t come off perfect or as I imagined they would but I will do my best to edit them well.
If you follow me on Instagram @luna.theblog you probably saw a lot of my stories and some pics I posted of the vacation. You can also check out the IG stories about the vacation in my highlights under Punat/2020.
I will just share a few photos from the vacation here. I was making a lot of videos so I didn’t take a lot of photos but I have some!
So, I love the traditional Mediterranean architecture and on our seaside we have plenty of examples. Just look how pretty this is! Croatia seaside cities are often compared to Italian cities by tourists, I heard this comparison a lot while working as a waitress during summer.
We also visited the small island of Kosljun which is the home of a Franciscan monastery and also a nature reserve.
The city Vrbnik just stole my heart. It is wonderful and I cannot believe that I haven’t heard about it before. I took a lot of videos of it so I have less pics but I have these two. The view of the sea is beautiful and I also had my birthday lunch there which I will show you later on. We actually came to Vrbnik on Wednesday and then we drove back there on Tuesday for my B-day lunch because we just loved this little city.
I just had to throw this in. We were in the city of Krk and while we were walking around town there was a woman trying to catch a baby owl which fell out of its nest. The owl didn’t know how to fly well yet but she flew a bit and landed right on by boyfriends’ pocket. That little thing you see on the pocket of his pants is a baby owl. There were like three people trying to catch the owl and return her to her nest because the street was really close and she could’ve been hit by a car. We couldn’t stay for long enough to see if they returned her to safety but I do believe they did because they managed to catch her once.
Oprna beach is the most beautiful beach we visited. It is a bit hard to access, you’ll see it in the vlog video and you can also see there’s a hill behind me and we descended down a hill to get to this beach. I was a bit scared to film the walk down to the beach because I was scared of slipping and falling down but both of us got down to the beach and climbed up successfully. It was so pretty!
And these are some pics from my birthday. I didn’t take a lot of videos during this day because it was out last day on vacation and we were just enjoying. The first pic of the food is the lunch we had in Vrbnik. If you come to Croatia, you have to try our Prosciutto and cheese, especially cheese from Pag. We had the dinner in Punat and it was delicious. He had some gnocchi and I had black cuttlefish risotto. My pretty little gift was this watch that he gave me when we went to Krk because I couldn’t wait to open up my present.
And now I am home and I have to accept the fact that my office is not the beach and slowly come back to reality. But I am very grateful to have a job in this situation and to have had a chance to take a few days to visit Krk and relax. I hope you are all having a lovely day and stay tuned for the vlog. I will try to put it up as soon as possible.
I just wish we have many more successful years. I do feel bad that at the start I didn’t invest as much time as I do now in this blog and I didn’t see its potential but I am so glad that in the last year we’ve built this incredible community of poets and bloggers who support each other, share they work, bring positive vibes and share their abuse stories to encourage others through our guest post categories. Thank you for building and writing this blog with me!
I hope you all had a great day. First of all I want to thank you for all of the wonderful birthday wishes. There were just so many comments under my birthday post that I still didn’t manage to thank everyone individually.
Second of all, I am sorry. Why, you ask? Because I have been shamefully not active on the blog for the last few days. Work has just been crazy, I spend most of my day in Zagreb. Before I would always have this little window of opportunity before my work to catch up on the Poetry Bar e-mails and to prepare all of your posts, but now the company I work for moved to a new building and I have to travel longer there and therefore I don’t have that time in the morning to do my blogging business. Thank you so much for still being active here and I promise I will try to coordinate my free time better so that I would be able to be as active as I was before. You just keep on sending all of those beautiful submissions for The Poetry Bar, The Positivity Press and saving me. All of the details are here: https://bit.ly/2JLAuLX
I want to show you the beautiful gift I got from my friend for my birthday. She is just the best! We spent hours last night talking and drinking gin tonics. Luckily, I wasn’t even a bit hungover today.
Thank you all so much again and have a lovely rest of the week.
It’s not like I’m attention seeking or anything, but like I am a little bit so I think it’s important for me to announce that it’s my birthday today!
You all have already given me the best gift ever which is your participation on this blog. I love you Poetry Bar submissions, your positive thoughts for The Positivity Press and how you can be vulnerable and share your stories for #savingme to encourage others to fight against abuse.
Just seeing all of the support you give each other in the comments fills my heart with joy and happiness and this blog just became such an important part of my life and I want to thank you all for it.
On Saturday, my birthday, the weather was just awful. It was cold, windy and rainy so I’ve spent my birthday recovering from the previous night out with my girls. Yesterday my mum and sister took me out to eat pancakes and celebrate my birthday. Of course that my little nephew was also there to make my day. You see the pictures very well so I don’t think I need to say how good the pancakes were.

Yesterday was my birthday and I’ve had two celebrations. One was in Zadar in June and one was this Friday with my friends in my hometown Zabok. On both parties I’ve had so much fun and I just love my friends so much!
In Zadar I celebrated my birthday with my friend Ivana. Before the party both of us went shopping, bought each other presents and bought the food and drinks for the party. We had a private party in Ivana’s apartment and later we were supposed to go out but I just couldn’t because the exams were still going and I was just too tired to go out and dance so I skipped that part.
Vana needs a standing ovation for her photobombing skills.
In Zabok I celebrated with Isabella, Jana and Marta. We drank some cocktails, ate some pizza and then drank some more. i haven’t been with them for a long time and I just had so much fun just talking to them. We really had a lot to say after all that time.
She got her new shoes dirty and was checking to see if they were alright. She doesn’t normally sit like this.

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Vana, happy birthday to you!
I was on my friend Vana’s 19 birthday party yesterday and it was amazing. We danced, sang, ate, drank and had so much fun. There was some break dancing, hip hop, cha-cha-cha and a lot of free styling.
Around 8 we all gathered and stayed up until 2. The two working chefs Ivana and Vana made sure we had some sweets to eat and the cake was just delicious.
The birthday girl had to blow her candles a few times for the sake of a good photo shooting. You have to do what you have to do. Make a wish Vana!
She was also sooo pretty with her hair did and that outfit. We all had our outfits on point and makeup on fleek but due to the heavy rain we never left the apartment so we created our own fun there. I think that the neighbors wanted to kill us.
You know that when you’re at a party, you have that “I’m exhausted, like my instagram picture” kind of mood.
All in all it was a great night and more birthdays are coming up so this will be repeated!
