Scenes from Split

I stayed in Split for two weeks, in which I got to spend some time relaxing and really take my time with just hanging out in Croatia (and also getting some things done). It was a nice seaside city and I stayed just outside the city center, which was also the old town. The city center in Split was really cool in that it’s essentially made up of an old Roman site – Diocletian’s Palace. It’s also just across the sea from Italy and I definitely indulged in the Italian food influences. Here are some photos!

Advent in Zagreb

ZagrebAdvent-29.jpgBecause my flight in and out of Croatia was through Zagreb, I was back here for a couple of days just in time to catch Advent. It was awarded best Christmas Market in Europe two years in a row, so I was glad to be able to check it out! Basically, the entire city center was one large wonderland of festive lights.

Scenes from Split – Advent Edition

I’m a little behind on getting through all the photos I took throughout Croatia, but as it is Advent season, here is the first set of images from seeing Croatia all decked out for the holidays. In Split, much of Advent occurs along Riva, the seaside promenade in the city center.

I watched the huts getting built up and the cafe bars transform to holiday mode.

And then, it became festive! There was some merriment all over Riva as well as People’s Square inside the Old Town. I was wandering on a weeknight though, so it was a little quieter than it would have been over the weekend.
