Welcome to the Countryside: My vacation getaway // Photo report

Although chocolate makes me happy and cake makes me feel fuzzy inside, there is nothing I love as much as family. Here’s some travel inspiration, based on my wonderful countryside getaway, whilst visiting family in Croatia <3.

THIS VACATION WAS GREEN, SUNNY & DELICIOUS. And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

COUNTRYSIDE ALWAYS SURPRISES ME BY HOW SELF-SUSTAINING IT IS. You would think a city is developed, and sure a city is, but then you realise that villages and countryside are really the main sources of food we have, and that cities (and their supermarkets) would be nothing without them!

IS IT STRANGE THAT THE FIRST THING THAT FLEW INTO MY MIND just now is: how did they have food on Star Fleet – I mean they didn’t have a meadow or anything on board? Although I do remember an episode where there were some Star Fleet staff in a sort of garden room, tending to some plans (Star trek fans, watch out ;))?!

FROM (ORGANICALLY GROWN) GREEN VEGETABLES, to ultimate long-keeping foods like the potato, the countryside grows it all. Fruits are not unrepresented – delicious plums and ripe, rounded pears growing on trees, reminding me how awesome trees and their fruits are <3.

ANOTHER CASE IN POINT, (LUCKILY I AM A MORNING PERSON) – preparing freshly picked corn cobs in the morning, for a tasty lunch in the afternoon!

OKAY, MAYBE I LOOK A LITTLE BIT CONFUSED IN THE PHOTOS, but some of these things were a little bit new to me – like pear picking straight from the tree (haha, look at us poking those pears with a stick!! :)).

FINALLY, WHAT’S COUNTRYSIDE WITHOUT A BBQ? Countless zucchinis from the garden were delicious grilled and served alongside (organic) meat and a big summer salad!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you too have (had) a lovely summer holiday (or that you at least feel inspired for one, after seeing these countryside photos 🙂 ).
