Sunset from the bell tower

Miranda

[ July, 2014 ] We went up to the top of the bell tower of Cathedral of St.Anastasia in Zadar, Croatia in the evening. It was just in time to see the beautiful sunset, but the problem was the railing was just in front of my eyes. So I had to stretch up or get …

Shallow sea

Miranda

[ July, 2014 ] During our summer holiday in Croatia, we joined a boat trip to Sakarun Beach. The leaflet’s catchword “Heaven on Earth” was a bit exaggerated, I thought, but there was the white sand inside the water which was very clean and clear. Overall it was a nice beach.

Three-dimensional maze

Miranda

[ July, 2014 ] The old town of Sibenik in Croatia is like a maze. And the streets are mostly staircases. You need strength for sightseeing. When we wanted to find a particular restaurant, my husband who has more stamina than me went up the stairs first and I followed him slowly. When I finally …
