The first thing we did today was visiting my school that I'll be studying at, just to see how I get there since the school is located a bit outside of the city centre. It was kind o struggle to get there since we weren't sure whether to take the tram or the bus. It ended up being both. It's a very small school in comparison to my uni at home, it have a high school vibe to it.

When we got back from visiting school, we went to the dolac market where they have EVERYTHING; fruit, food, souvenirs and knick-knacks. We had lunch at a place just by the market, called Plac, where they serve traditional Croatian food. I had a "Teleci trganči" wich is veal striped with flat bread. It was okay. Mom had a "Ćevapčići" which basically tastes like more spicy seasoned meatballs, also served in flatbread.

The Zagreb cathedral. This is where my busstop is and where I'll be catching my bus to school. Not complaing about having to walk past this scenary every day.

We went up to the Lotrščak tower beacuse the view is awesome, but the deck we stood on was super old and it felt very unsafe, so it was quite scary.

The famous St. Mark's curch. It has a cool roof, I think that is why it's famous.

we ended the day with a nice dinner in the upper town at a restaurant called Agava, I had the best gnocchi with smoked ham and mom had a risotto with shrimps. I'm very tired after today and I think I'm about to have a cold, my throat is soar and I have a runny nose. Just my luck :):)

I've been here for almost 2 days now and I'm really enjoying Zagreb so far. Me and my mom have had 2 pretty chill days since we've been tired from traveling. We've mostly strolled around the city, getting to know it. I live right by the main street so I've been checking out the shops here, and they're not bad! Most importantly they have Zara and a store called DM where they have a lot of drugstore makeup brands. I LOVE the area I live in (as central as it can get) and my apartment is great too! I'll post pictures of it soon.

My street. My apartment is right next to the funicular, on the left side. And a tram which is the main transportation here.

My street from above the funiculars. The funicular takes you from the city center (donji grad) and the upper town (gornji grad). And in the end of my street you can see the main street, Ilica, where all the shops are.

This morning me and mom had breakfast at Britanski square. We went to this really cool place called Kava Tava, they had interior inspired from the 60s. Every sunday they have a antique fair at the Britanski square so we took the opportunity to have a look at the market.

Lotrščak tower that is right next to the funicular, and my apartment. Apparently they shoot a canon out of the window every day at noon. No sleep-in's for me.

VIEW. And today's dinner (roasted veal and baked potato) at a nice restaurant called Vinodol.

Welcome to my travel journal!

Hello friends and family!!! Here it is, my very own travel journal/blog where I will keep you all updated on my many (upcoming) adventures. It'll be nice in the future to have this to look back at and remember great times. Hopefully, I will update my journal continuously with pictures and stuff. I really like the look of this blog, it's very simple. Not gonna lie it was a struggle to figure out the design tool, and I did stay up to 1 AM fixing it all haha. I think I'll stick with writing in english since I have a bunch of international friends (and I'll probably gain more on this trip), though it feels kind of awkward..

Anyway, the first adventure that I will be documenting - my exchange studies in Zagreb, Croatia. I will stay there for approximately 5 months to study tourism, promotion, management of information systems, entrepreneurship, e business, croatian language & culture and business communication. The plane leaves 19th of august, and I'm starting off with 11 days vacay in order to get to know Zagreb and learn how to orient in the city, since I've never been there before. I've actually never been to Croatia at all, so I'm very excited though I'm starting to get a bit nervous beacuse I don't now anyone there, yet. Right now, my biggest struggle in life is PACKING. I'm only allowed to bring 30 kg, and I have to bring clothes for summer, fall and winter which means I'll have to bring lots of heavy stuff like shoes, and coats and things I need for school, like my computer. And my camera of course. All this needs to fit in 2 suitcases. Help. (​Edit: ​I ended up packing in 3 and ½ suitcases)
