Red Rose

I thought it’s over with roses this year but I was wrong. When I came back home from my holiday I found many of them still in bloom. I am thankful to my mother who watered my flowers while I was away.

Pink Rose


This photo I took last Sunday after the rain that it wasn't last more then a several minutes. It has still been too warm in my country. I'm accustomed to more comfortable summers and this tropic hot weather is too much for me. Yet, I am thankful to God that we don’t have some stronger natural disasters (fires, storms, earthquakes….) like many other countries have had for which I am very sorry.

13th Annual Sarajevo Film Festival

The important and interesting event that’s happening in my city is 13th Annual Sarajevo Film Festival which started on the 17th August and it will last till 25th August. This festival is the biggest in south-east Europe. The red carpet was spread in front of our National Theater where people can see many famous directors and actors from more than 30 counties. My husband and I took a walk last evening and this is a photo that I took while we passing by the National Theater.

Poreč


Look at this photo. For me, it’s like a painting.
All of a sudden the clouds started to build up announcing the storm that was coming on and on our way to Rovinj it started to rain heavily so we had to stop the car for a while that much was pouring with rain.

Eufrazijeva bazilika


The Euphrasian Basilica (Eufrazijeva bazilika in Croatian/Bosnian) in Poreč was built in the 6th century.

An old lighthouse


Rovinj

Rovinj is a city in Croatia situated on the north Adriatic Sea. It is a popular tourist destination and an active fishing port.
When we arrived in this place and when I wanted to take the first photo my camera battery let me down so I again had to use my older camera. That’s why these photos are of less quality. Needles to say how much disappointed I was.

Rijeka

Hello people! My vacation is over and I've come back to my routine life. My husband and I were invited by our friends to spend our vacation with them in their house in Rijeka (Croatia) where they live. They have beautiful house which is about 10 kilometres far from the centre of Rijeka and only 5 kilometres away from Opatia. Thanks to God and to the hospitality of our friends, who are more then friends, we spent the most beautiful holiday that we ever had. I cannot remember when the last time that I relaxed that well. I made so many photos. Many of them are not as good as I hoped it would be and I am very much disappointed because of that. My camera used to make me some problems so there are photos that were made by my old which is even of less quality. Yet, I will post some of the photos for you to see only some of beautiful places that I saw in Croatia.
Rijeka whose name simply means “river” is Croatia's third largest city. It is the seaport of Croatia, located on Kvarner Bay, an inlet of the Adriatic Sea.

Firework


This is my failed trying to capture firework that suddenly started at midnight the other night. I took these photos from my window and I'm now using them to celebrate the beginning of my vacation which I need so much. Monday is the first day of my holiday but I start from tomorrow. My husband and I are leaving to our road trip throughout Bosnia and our final destination is Rijeka in Croatia. See you when I come back home, till then take care of yourself and be healthy and happy.

The feast


The afternoon silence suddenly was broken yesterday by croaking of a flock of magpies, which appear from nowhere and while they were feasting themselves with pears. The pear tree is in my neighbour's garden across my home. This photo I took from my terrace which is rather far from the pear tree but the photo is not too bad.

Trgovke

On this photo you can see a short street that is called “Trgovke” what means something like “small trade shops”. This street is full of traditional, decorative and hand made Bosnian carpets which once were used in old Bosnian houses. It is less used today but it has still been very popular even in another countries.
