FALLING IN LOVE WITH CROATIA
After traveling to Italy, Greece, Kotor, Santorini and Montenegro last year I wanted to go back on the plane and explore more countries with coasts on the Adriatic sea. I find this part of the planet notably unique and beautiful. I wanted to renew my experience - no surprise we decided to booked our flight to explore Croatia, without a precise itinerary we visited Zagreb and Rab Island and both cities unveiled their own secret and beauty... this is what makes traveling even more memorable and beautiful.
I am not a food expert but I can tell you when something is good or bad. Croatian local food is not only affordable but it is tasty and savoury. If you ever visit Zagreb you need to try these two spots:
You think you ate the best grilled chicken? I also thought that until we ordered food from Plac Kitchen & Grill the first night we arrived. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. As soon as we finished eating our cevapcici (a traditional meal) we knew for sure that this trip would be a nice dining experience.
Don't we say that the treasures are always hidden? Well it is the case with Apetit. This gourmet restaurant is hidden in a small alley and if you don't pay attention you'll miss it. Apetit restaurant excels in service and quality of food : a delicate and simple cuisine at the same time. This is what makes Croatian's culinary experience extraordinary.
After exploring the city for few days, we left the capital to continue our adventure in a small Croatian island named Rab. Croatia has many beautiful islands and Rab is one of them. A 4 hours road trip led us to the island, we took this opportunity to contemplate the amazing landscape: the ocean out of sight, nature at its pure state. A magical moment.
This whole trip was an incredible experience. Travelling not only opens us to the world but also allows us to discover a part of ourselves - find beauty in all things - be vulnerable and gain a clearer vision on our purpose in life. This travel inspired me a lot and even gave me the desire to travel more, to experiment and create the life I want to live.

During this adventure I brought with me My Bucket List to secretly write the revelations that this trip would've whispered to my soul. I also wrote down all the things I wanted to do, see and live. I am just starting. I know it won't be easy but at the end I believe it will be worth the wait, the efforts, the struggles, the doubts and the failures... Life is too short to just fall asleep. We must be awakened to live.

I vlogged my travel diary for the first time. Yes I tried something new and I am glad I did. I am sharing with you footage of my amazing trip in Croatia with my lovely sisters. We live in 3 different countries (England, France and Canada) every time we see each other we travel some places #WanderlustSisters. I am grateful to be able to cherish these moments with them, not only we are spending great quality time, we explore, bond and make memorable memories forever. Isn't what we call sisterhood?
Any travel plans for 2017? Where do you want to travel with your siblings, besties or lover?
