Long macchiato: the quest begins.

What does a lifelong tea drinker do when she discovers, while on holidays on the opposite side of the world, that the most perfect coffee she's ever had is a long macchiato, the one and only coffee that she, a former cafe owner and not-half-bad barista, never even knew existed? We're about to find out. ...

Brain dump: all the randomness that’s fit to print.

Not ready to go home and face all the responsibilities waiting for me there. I can't even start thinking about the Mt Fuji of stuff that needs my attention the minute I get back. No more food. Seriously, I can not face any more food. How much have alcohol have I enjoyed while on holidays? ...

Summer time and the eating is good…

Back in Croatia for holidays, and it's always so nice to get back to what I love best: the freshest food possible and the cheapest eating out I ever get to enjoy. SOOO many cafe stops since I tried a long macchiato: hello perfect coffee I've been searching for. Not too strong or too milky ...

On taking back what’s always been mine.

It's strange sometimes to imagine that, despite being born half a world away, my love for the country of my ancestors runs so deep and strong. It's not a blind head-in-the-sand kind of love, unfortunately Croatia has all the same economical problems facing other European countries, and don't even get me started on the corrupt ...

Learning to slow down

The first week it's all about the jet lag, struggling to keep your eyes open before it's even dark and being awake with the chickens, roosters, and farmers. The second week you start to stay up later and sleep until a more normal time, until suddenly you find that you've woken up and it's somehow ...

The Bad Mum’s guide to Croatia*

*By "Croatia" I specifically mean the Dalmatian coast, and even more specifically the city of Zadar, located almost smack bang in the middle of the Croatian coastline on the Adriatic Sea. This is where our family is and where we base ourselves, so it's definitely the part of the country I know best and feel ...

Scattered thoughts…

If baby brain is an actual thing then holiday brain is too. The less I have to think about the less I am able to do so. The less I cook complicated meals the less I am even able to remember exactly what I used to cook. Fresh local seafood, vegies picked from the neighbour's ...

Holidaze…

Two weeks and a few days into our trip I have to say it's bloody good to be back. Croatia is the country but Dalmatia is where we're at. And not just us judging by all the foreign number plates, from Germany, Poland, Hungary, The Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Austria, Romania, and Bulgaria being the most ...

Sweet Town Of Mine

As a child we moved home at least half a dozen times. When I married and left my parent’s house for the last time I moved into my in-laws home which was all the way on the other side of Sydney. Since we married my husband and I have moved twice more. Yet despite this ...

She’s Alive!

Hi all! Just thought I might drop in with a quick hello. Here I am in beautiful warm Zadar, in central Dalmatia. We're nearly halfway through our family holiday, lazily passing the days with lots of great food, wine, and beaches. I have been a very good girl, keeping right away from the online world, ...
