Recent Travels to Croatia

Was it all just a dream? That's what I'm asking myself today as I ease myself back into everyday routine after returning back from a wonderful holiday spent in Berlin and Dubrovnik. 

This was the first time I have visited Dubrovnik and completely fell in love with it. It is such a special place and the beautiful surroundings, food, culture, and people took my breath away. It was one of those holidays that makes you forget about everything in your everyday life and inspires creativity, introspection and new perspectives on life. In effect, a bit life-changing and I cannot wait to go back again soon! I promise to post photos and my story soon, but I wanted to give a glimpse of some of the beauty I experienced from my recent Instagram posts that I took along the way (find me on Instagram at @woman.meets.world).

Coastal Living Magazine

Coastal Living Magazine is a favourite publication of mine. Their magazine and beautiful regular posts on Instagram always provide daily inspiration and a breath of fresh air. The coast - and the ocean/sea/lake/river/any body of water - has always provided me with a sense of calm and serenity. This might be due to growing up in Oakville, ON, which is right on Lake Ontario, but I find peace in watching and listening to the regular rhythm of waves rolling into shore. I have recently purchased my first condo in Toronto and one of my favourite features is the fact that it has a view of the lake. I love to gaze out and watch sailboats float by on the shimmering water in the sunlight. It only made sense to also draw inspiration from the beautiful design inspiration of coastal properties to decorate that the magazine highlights!

So, you can imagine my delight and happiness that the wonderful Coastal Living Magazine shared one of my recent photos taken in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on their website on Saturday as their 'View of the Day' - and paired it with the most perfect soundtrack!

Weekend Wanderlust

I am a big fan of Gray Malin's beautiful photography. His whimsical and creative images constantly draw my attention. For me, Gray is able to capture the spirit and joy of a destination; Europe in particular. Below are three images I'm currently loving from Gray, which he shot in Italy. He has been able to capture the Italian essence of summertime; the heat, the colour, the sparkling sea, the hazy blue skies, the loungers, the lovers of life, the Italian feel of holidaying by the seaside... 'La Dolce Vita' in photographs. 

Gray has a really fun Instagram account (@graymalin) that always provides a daily boost of travel inspiration. His website is also fab and recommend checking it out as there's always surprises that end up in  your inbox - and lots of daydreaming material. 

Ciao!
