What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:

1.       About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments.

There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :)

2.       Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoroughly, is hike the hills and nearby villages and explore old architecture of the region. By architecture I don’t mean some grand villas but rather very charming old houses very unique to the region. I get the privilege of staying in one of those vintage homes. My great grandfather’s house is in the village of Kremna and is one of the most peaceful places to be. I still have many memories of visiting the house as a kid. My great grandparents still lived there at the time. Now the house serves more as a cottage. The walls of the house which are about a meter thick keep the house cool, if not cold, so no AC is necessary. Days are warm here but nights are very cool so you are guaranteed some of the most restful night sleeps. Top floor features all original windows which do require some refurbishing. Oh and did I tell you that there is even a traffic sign with my family name (in Cyrillic alphabet) signalling the turn to my village heheh. How cool is that! Also, If you’re lucky,  you may even catch a ride on a pimped up tractor!

3.       Nothing in this region is far when speaking in kilometer distance, but western Serbia is a very mountainous region and full of canyons and meandering roads, so 20km distance may take you a full houre to drive. It’s worth it though. So about an hour ride from Kremna and Drvengrad,  you will find a beautiful lake Zaovine. This is not a nature lake but it rather formed when a dam was constructed. This summer has been extremely hot so the water level is a little lower making the access to the lake a little rocky. On the other side of dam, on top of the hill, you will find restaurant Tarsko Jezero which has a terrace view to die for. Many tourists stop by to eat or at least grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the scenery. We camped at the top of the hill above lake Zaovine and waking up to this view was priceless.

Must read book!
4.       On the mountain of Tara, about a 30 minute ride from Zaovine, you will find village of Mitrovac. This village is known for mountain tourism and as Tara mountain is protected, you will find so much untouched nature, beautiful trails among coniferous trees and access to a lookout over Drina river canyon. You will want to stay there for hours, breathing in fresh air and all of the beauty of the canyon and its colours. A must-see!
5.       Lastly, just enjoy. Get back to nature, appreciate the peace it provides to you mind and body. Sit on the ground, feel the grass, let your eyes absorb all the beauties around you. You body and soul will thank you for it.

As for the outfits, I can’t fully call them that. One of my suitcases containing most of my clothes got delayed in Frankfurt so I had to work with what I had in my shoe suitcase and my carry-on. But it worked out anyway. I wore the white Forever 21 dress couple of times. My new Pink exercise leggings made for a great Yeezy inspired outfit when combined with the oversized sweatshirt, and the red light summer dress from H&M perfectly mixed with the greens and the blues of Tara mountain and Drina canyon. As for the shoes, I seem to be wearing these H&M slides with everything. They are just so versatile.

Hope you enjoyed these last two posts as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Ciao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.
Ciao!

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…
