Back in December, I challenged myself to write at least 1000 words every single day in the run up to my blog (re)launch. I thought it would be a good…

I'm back with part two of our Croatian adventures! The boyfriend and I went on an eight-day holiday to Zagreb back in September. I've decided to write two blog posts about it, because too much stuff happened to cram into one post. If you haven't read the first part yet, you can do that here.
Exactly two months and one day ago now (I know, I'm the worst), the boyfriend and I went on an eight-day holiday to Zagreb, Croatia. Since it was September and Autumn was already well on its way, we didn't have the best weather (read: we had rain 90% of the time), but we tried to make the most of it and Zagreb really is a very beautiful city - even under a grey sky. We also somehow took about a gazillion pictures, which I managed to cut down for the purpose of these blog posts (don't worry). And yes, I said blog posts. If you hadn't figured it out from the title, this will be a two-parter. I thought cramming eight days into one post would be a bit much, so here we are: part one of Discovering Zagreb is finally up.
It's been a while since I last baked so I thought it was time to have another go at it. Since we're close to Halloween (only a few more days now!) I thought it would be fun to make some scary baked goodies. I put on my themed baking hat and pulled out my favourite recipe book for baking: Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr. I had a lot of fun making (and eating) these, and I'm sure you will too. Enjoy!
Ah, Bruges. What a wonderful city! Often lovingly referred to as "the Venice of the North", the historical center is an amalgamation of quirky historical buildings interlaced with various canals and - of course - bridges (the Flemish name basically means 'bridges', btw). When my boyfriend and I first went to Bruges for a daytrip a little over a year ago, we decided then and there that we would definitely go back for an overnight stay. And now here we are! Well, there we were. A few weeks ago, as July was slowly coming to an end, we booked a two-day getaway to this magical city.
For Valentine's Day, the boyfriend and I went to the cinema to finally go see La La Land. After reading a lot of great reactions to the movie and knowing it has already raked in a fair amount of awards and is still nominated for a few more, my expectations were pretty high. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed!
February has started and it ushers in a hectic period both for myself and for my boyfriend. I'll be busy going to class while also working on my thesis and other university assignments, and trying to keep this blog and my YouTube channel afloat. At the same time, my boyfriend will be doing his final internship, which includes a long commute and a whole bunch of side-assignments. For that reason, we decided in November to take a short and relaxing break in between our January exams and the chaos that will be the next few months of our lives.
