A trip to the Dolac

Autumn is hanging on as tightly as it can. After weeks and weeks of dreary rain, the sun has been persistently shining on Zagreb. It’s the perfect weather to head to the Dolac market for groceries. I wish I had the remotest bit of talent to show you how beautiful,...

A Very Tough Marathon

We stumbled into the Zagreb marathon on the weekend. I don’t mean that we accidentally found ourselves running 42 kilometers *shudder*. Just that we went for a walk and BANG, there was a marathon going through the centre of town. And let me tell you, walking down Ilica when it’s...

Dada Cultural Bar – Sofia

Coming home from dinner one night in Sofia we walked past a cool little bar. It looked like a band was just about to start so we popped inside for a beer and a listen. We’re normally pretty rubbish at finding all the ‘cool places’ in a city but lately...

One Nice Tweet

Today I thanked someone I didn’t know for helping me to do something that I never thought I’d need. I’ve made a decision. I’m going to thank complete strangers more often. Every single day I am amazed at the generosity of people on the internet. People who make free WordPress...

Obesity – it’s not stupid

I’ve been struck down with the most severe bout of hayfever ever to be experienced by anyone ever which means that I’ve spent a large chunk of today hanging upside down off the edge of the couch, trying to drink tea and catching up on some old articles I’ve been...

Jinx at Tuskanac

We went along on Tuesday night to the special 20th anniversary performance by Croatian band Jinx at Tuskanac. I’m amazed at how well Croatians can turn any space into a stage. This is normally a basketball court on top of a parking garage. By the time the sun went down...

Fear of thongs 0

Japanke

With the advent of spring, C and I are wearing our Australian national footwear – thongs (or flip flops, if you must). We are now wandering the streets of Zagreb feeling cool and looking fab. There’s just one small problem. Japanke*. Basically, Croatians have an irrational fear of cold feet....
