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.
Yesterday, while I was at work, my boyfriend texted me that we didn’t have any power! And then, when I got home, the mower wouldn’t start. Bad connects, he thinks. Anyway, I called the power company to let them know we didn’t have any power. They told me that the power would be on by 4pm! It was only about 130!! It was nearly 90 degrees out! (We don’t have ac – only fans, including but not limited to ceiling fans.) Couldn’t even take a shower to rinse all the sweat off!
I could’ve let that ruin my day, but I didn’t. I worked on my laptop, editing some photos (no power=no wifi). As long as the battery had some charge in it, I could use it! When I was done with that, I did some reading.
I mean, I could’ve let those two things ruin my day, but I didn’t. There is always something to be thankful for…we’ve got a roof over our heads, food in the pantry and the bills are paid. All the other stuff is minor.
My boyfriend, on the other hand, is another story!
Hi! My name is Holly and I’m the author of Holly’s World. Despite anything negative, I (usually) try to have a good outlook on life! Sometimes it’s hard, but I always find my way back! You can find my posts and pages here: photographybyhcmorris77.com
This week I am working that fucking shift until 11 PM and I am going to sleep at my friends in Zagreb. I don’t think I will be taking my laptop with me so I need you all to send in your Poetry Bar, Positivity Press and #savingme submissions as soon as possible so that I could get the posts ready for this week.
I know that I can do it over the phone but sometimes the posts just look weird when I post over the phone so I would like to prepare them while I have my laptop with me. I am looking forward to reading what you’ll send my way. You already know the drill:
Our middle child of guest posts is THE POSITIVITY PRESS – here you send your positive stories, share positive vibes, send pictures, tell us about your new job or hobby and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. It was designed to bring joy to us on a daily basis and keep us positive and grateful for all the little experiences that happen to us. You just need to send your positive vibes to the e-mail address and attach a blog link if you’d like
And our new born baby is #savingme project – here you can share your stories about any type of abuse you’ve experienced. The email is email@example.com. The project was made to let abuse victims know they are not alone. If you don’t want to share your whole story, you can share how you got out, some advice to people going through this hell currently. It’s a safe place and your story can be published completely anonymously. Also, you can see that I post about my own experience with domestic abuse and not only my story but my thoughts, mechanisms that helped me overcome it etc.
Does life have a second chance ? Well yes I have another chance . I was home one day when I realized that God has given me another chance to get things right . sometimes we feel like giving up , we feel like quitting , we feel down because of our past but I’m here to tell you that your past is gone and you have another chance to get things right .
I used to shy of my past but when I surrendered it all to God I became free and now I can share my story without any form of guilt . don’t let your past hold you from becoming the best you. I am working on me constantly and I thank God for everything that I have been through , it is all in his plan for my life.
Here is me , I was at a poetry show where I performed a piece by me titled “grateful “
Here’s my contribution – a couple of pictures of my cat Honey with her new best friend and regular visitor to our garden. They often sit out together in the late evenings enjoying life!

I decided to switch the main picture of the blog because I really wanted Olivia (my typewriter) to be in the pic. I’ve placed the first one right away when I went Premium and changed the blog theme but I never really liked it. I think this one is better. I wish I had someone around who was better at photography because I have a bunch of picture ideas, but can’t realize them on my own. Anyways, do you like it?
