Visit Šibenik: An iPhone Photo Diary


Yesterday morning I wrote on Instagram: 'Not sure do I miss it already but I sure as hell miss the view.'

So yeah, we've returned to Rijeka, our Clio packed with things (I don't even how how we always manage to do it no matter where we go), us and Frida exhausted but feeling super happy about the entire little vacation. It was short, sweet and I brought back loads of lovely memories with me, some of which I'm gonna share with you today.


If you're following me on Instagram, then you're already familiar with all of these photos but since the weather has been amazing and the entire city looked so photogenic, I simply had to share them in a bigger resolution. Because there aren't many places in the world that look equally stunning during all kinds of weather conditions, right?


I woke up to this view above on our very first morning back home. It was really early, the entire city was almost mute and I sat by the window enjoying the scene, thinking how I still haven't managed to find another apartment with a similar view (the one in Zagreb is overlooking another building and this one in Rijeka where I'm currently living isn't too shabby but when compared to this, it doesn't even stand a chance). Yes, this is the view from our family apartment and I have been waking up to it for more than 15 years. I think it's really understandable why I have such extreme high standards when it comes to beautiful views. Šibenik made me do it.


On our last day we went to the little village of Ružić (in Drniš area) where my grandfather was born and where he and my grandmother have a perfect little countryside getaway house nowdays. Since it's cherry season at the moment (yes to perfect timing!) and they're pretty much my favourite fruit after strawberries and pineapple, we spent the entire afternoon climbing up several trees filled with big, juicy and amazing cherries while Frida ran around us and enjoyed every second of the day. She has always been the biggest fan of our family trips to Ružić (cca 40 mins drive from Šibenik) because of the infinite green fields and loads of fresh air.


Most of the time while we were in Šibenik I shot analogue, I think it's mostly because I've never done it in my hometown so I felt that in a way I have to make it up to it. Today I'm taking the films to the lab to have it scanned so stay tuned for definitely one more post about this little dalmatian adventure. Until then I hope you've enjoyed this little iPhone diary I decided to start the week with.


And yes, happy new week, hope it's gonna be amazing for all of us!

  1. E da se i meni probuditi uz takav pogled. <3
    Fotografije su premoćne, na ovoj jednoj, imam osjećaj da samo ispružim ruku da bih mogla za stvarno dotaknuti i osjetiti te oblake. Zaljubila sam se...po tko zna koji put, još na IG, a nemaš pojma koliko mi je drago da si ih odlučila staviti i ovdje. Osim na pogledu, totalno ti zavidim na ovom 'cherry' danu, s tim da ne znam da li više tebi/vama ili Fridi. :D
    Baš mi je drago da si skupila tako divne fotografije i uspomene i nadam se da si napunila baterije i fino se relaksirala, bez obzira na lunjanje svugdje i stalno. ;) :*

    1. Ajme hvala ti puno, draga moja! Svima nam je bilo lijepo, ali definitivno mislim da je Frida ipak najviše uživala, čitav put je bio baš po njenom guštu :)

  8. Taj pogled....stvarno zlata vrijedi. Vidim kako je podigao standarde za svaki pogled. Prekrasne fotografije, jedva čekam vidjeti i one analogne! Baš ih je gušt vidjeti u većem formatu, pogotovo ovako u miru...instagram mi je drag, ali na mobitelu baš i ne mogu baš vidjeti sve detalje. Ova serija je fantastična, posebno su mi simpatične one iz branja trešanja....a slike Šibenika su divne....Naša obala je stvarno nešto posebno.

    1. Puno ti hvala! I ja se silno veselim danas otići po analogne, nadam se da su super ispale pa ih budem kroz koji dan stavila na blog :) Ajme bilo nam je super u trešnjama, prošle godine sam ih morala preskočiti zbog obaveza, ali smo zato ove godine nadoknadili, doslovno sam pola dana provela na stablu haha koji nevjerojatan gušt! :) I slažem se, naša obala je savršena, stvorena za uživanje!

  11. Jao, jao, jao! :D Taj pogled!!! :) Njega je zaista teško prevazići i sa potpunim pravom imaš visoke standarde. Koja uživanicja i idila. Na stranu tvoje meni potpuno razumljive odnose sa Šibenikom, ta mesta, ti pogledi, sve tako deluje kao sa razglednice, još u društvu tako moćnih oblaka, ma kao da samo Posejdon fali da se pojavi iz mora :) Nemam reči. O tom raju sa trešnjama neću ni da pričam! :D :**
