Somewhere in August I started to see leaves turning colours and now we are already in the middle of September, temperatures have dropped (which I am actually excited about) and my mom has already send me butternut squash. What says its autumn better than pumpkins, right?
But before I dive into autumn I would like to share with you some memories that will make this summer special to me. Just the other day me and my boyfriend were talking how summer just flew past us and we don’t really have a feeling it was summer because we didn’t spend any time at the beach or pool, and it took us a while to figure out all the other great things we did and it turned out we had really great summer after all. Last year I wrote a post to capture my summer (Summer memories) so I can look back and see what I was up to and it’s only fair I do the same this year.
Last year my summer started in Taiwan and this year it was Spain. I am so glad we decided to visit Spain at the end of May/begining of June, because I can’t imagine being there in the heat wave that happened later in June and then in July. I also think it was less crowded which is always a huge plus for me. We visited 5 cities in 4 regions in 11 days and had the best time there. See my full itinerary here: 11 days in Spain.
Even though this was our only summer travel this year we had an amazing time in Ljubljana and visited Kranfest in Kranj, a lovely town north of Ljubljana and Špancirfest in Varaždin, Croatia. It was my first time at both of these festival and I am sure I will return to both of these towns because they are just so charming.
One Saturday we also went on a wine tasting in Cuk Wine House in Lendava and had the most amazing time tasting wine and food with some stunning views. You can read more about our experience here: Wine tasting Saturday.
What would a summer be without a little picnic? We threw one for our friends and I got to try my latest summer obsession which are ice teas. I made two different ones and I am hooked on them ever since. I also made lavender syrup and it is like the easiest thing to do and tastes so delicious when mixed with just water or with some gin and tonic.
Most of the summer we spend in Ljubljana, catching up with some friends, eating tons of delicious ice cream, trying some new foods (Tasty weekend in Ljubljana, part 2.) and just enjoying the sunshine, even though some days felt hot as hell. One other amazing thing we did for the first time this summer and I would never ever though I would like that, but I love it now, its go kart. We went with some friends and even though I was the last one I had such an amazing time and will definitely do it again. Here are some more photos that I captured during the summer.
Tell me, how was your summer? What are some amazing things you did? Did you travel somewhere? And also, what are your plans for autumn?
I have some travel plans for October and then again some even more exciting travel plans in December. If you want to know where I am heading check out my Instagram.
