I had such a great weekend and if you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the stories and the pictures. Last night I went to dinner with Antonio, we had some pizza, got some drinks and today we went to Castle Trakoscan. It is so beautiful and I completely recommend you visiting it if you ever spend some time in Croatia, Zagorje to be more exact.
The part of Croatia where I live has a lots of castles and Trakoscan is the one of the most popular ones. Trakoscan was built in the late 13th century. The castle had many owners and the most popular ones were the family Draskovic from 1584. It’s a museum now. The nature and the lake around the castle are completely breathtaking and perfect for a weekend trip. We walked a lot around the lake, walked around the castle, saw the exhibition, stopped to drink something because the sun exhausted us. It was just great. It is forbidden to take pics in the museum but I took a few because the first thing I thought to myself was “I need a few pics to show on my blog!”
I know it’s not polite to disobey the rules of a museum but like… Everyone was doing it! Anyways here are some pics.
I hope you all had a great weekend and you can tell me all about it in the comments and also please check out this post #savingme, share it because I just want more people to engage in this project.
Sending love and positive vibes,
Like strawberry fraises
Honeysuckle and gardenia bustling!!
Rich lavender plotting purple hues
Pink hydrangeas stacked loose
The heavenly glossy foliage
Haven of natural perfumes
Lavender florets mooning as lily rampages!!
Peonies gorgeous smell embed
Gardenia creamy lustful scents
It’s sunshine glory overfed!!
Primrose heralding spring
And blossoms that this mid summer brings!!

The sun is shining
I woke up today to clouds and rain
I woke to a dismal day
but now the sun is shining
and I can’t find a thing that causes me to complain
because I woke up today
and it was drip dripping so I went back in
and closed the door
But later when I looked back out
the sun was shining
and I couldn’t shove
I walked by this field today, filled with dandelions.
A beautiful spring sight.
I’ve always thought dandelions are beautiful, even though they are considered common.
And the two red flowers, wild, in the midst made me think.
No matter how different we are, we are all beautiful, and we are never alone.
Spring is here and even if the sun is playing hide and seek, nature is blossoming.
And with it, roses. All colors.
They are enchanting our senses. Eyes and nostrils.
I could spend hours bathing in their freshness, beauty and grace…
Have a lovely day.
You are like a river and when I hug you
I could just drown in your depth.
I saw the sun bleeding so much beauty
over the sea while it danced to the sound
playing in my head all day.
Like it listened, like it heard the struggle
I’m in. Like it understood that I needed peace.
I thought to myself – if the sea can be beautiful
in its riot of drops and waves than I can find
one thought that will keep me on my feet.
So much has happened and so much has
changed. Even the sun is disappearing from my
horizon. But soon after the moon rose and it
reminded me why I decided to share the name with him.
So strong even when he’s small. The only light
in the dark nights. He always finds a way to show
himself, no matter how many times he disappears.
Inspire me and revive me. Give me new
meaning and lead me. Moon, you messenger
that there is always something good to be found
even in the darkest night, help me sleep tonight.
Life exhausted me and left me sitting on this
beach and I feel alone but that’s alright because
I’m looking at the sun bleeding so much beauty over
the sea and setting the territory for the moon to share some
light upon the lost.
