Do you guys have places that you used to go to a lot as a child? I do. For me it’s Croatia, to be more precisely, the region of Istria. I used to go there at least once a year for a long summer vacation with my parents. Medulin, where we used to go to a lot, is a mere 5 hour drive from where I live, so it was really convenient. Beach holidays didn’t happen for me this year, but let me take you back with me to some of my spots from the last time I was there.
You might wonder how all of a sudden I get so nostalgic? Well, apart from that literally half of my friends ARE in Croatia right now enjoying the sea, I also did some deal-researching for an upcoming trip later in this year (I’m going to tell you more about it soon!). While doing this, I happened to click through to the travel section about Croatia on lastminute.de. Mistake! Even if you don’t speak German, just click through the pictures in the slider, and you know why I got nostalgic! So I figured, as a little mid-week mental vacation (or probably I’m just mean and want to itch your travel bug, so that we are both in the same boat!), let me share some of my favorite pictures from former trips to Medulin, Croatia with you.
There isn’t a ton to do there – it’s really pretty much a quiet beach town, but that is what made it always so relaxing for us. We usually went camping with our RV, and the campsite there is located in a gorgeous pine forest on a mini peninsula. One side of the beach is sand and perfect for when you are little and the other side has more rocks and cliffs, which is beautiful if you want to go snorkeling…okay, I’m starting to sound too much like a travel agent, wanting to sell you a package, so I better stop! 😀 But I’m honest, those quiet beach days in Croatia were gorgeous. I miss them 🙂
P.S. I enjoyed taking pictures of my food there already as well – and that was waaaaay before I knew Instagram existed – those pics are from 2010 😉
