On Tuesday morning, I awoke to a wonderful surprise. It was St. Nicholas Day, which in Europe is also the day that I celebrate my Name Day! When I went to sleep the night before, I had totally forgotten about it!
I was shocked to see St. Nicholas had remembered to visit our place!
He even found my boot! I got a nice big chocolate and also a gold stick which represented that I had not been all nice this year.
Tomislav had a business trip he had to take to Porec, Croatia on the seaside which I tagged along on. The drive to the seaside from Zagreb is incredible. First, we left the fog of Zagreb for the snowy mountainous region.
The picture does not do it justice. It looked gorgeous!
The snow brought our Christmas tunes to life!
When we arrived in Porec, T-Slav went to work while I got to relax near the sea.
It was warm and beautiful, once the sun set though, we had to move on.
Since T had to work in Rijeka on Wednesday, we drove down Tuesday night and were so happy to see such a beautiful, Christmas-y city!
The pedestrian zone in Rijeka is so long, I think even longer than in Belgrade and it really put us in the holiday spirit.
The best part of our time in Rijeka for me? Probably the hotel, for we had the best view we have ever had before here!
From the balcony, you could just see water all around, it was so beautiful.
I loved it!
It was so peaceful
Thanks to the Best Western: Hotel Jadran for giving us the best view in the entire hotel!
