We had US Presidents day off work and Daniel had the wonderful idea to have a weekend getaway in Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is about three-four hours down the coast from Split, and we had been wanting to make the trip for a while. Despite seeing photos and seeing Dubrovnik as Kings Landing in Game of Thrones, […]
February in Split feels like spring. Things are in bloom and we’ve had several days that are almost 60°F. It’s been sunny and warm. We’re still too busy with work to do much, but we’ve been enjoying the weather with our neighborhood and beach walks. The boys got new backpacks to ride in on some
The rain slowed down and it got warmer for the end of our second January in Split. We spent it walking as much as possible. We took some long night walks at the beach, we visited a beautiful park in the middle of Solin, and we went to one of Cirrus’ favorite places, Žrnovnica River.

There wasn’t much left of November by the time we arrived home from our Italy trip. Especially when you factor in needing to unpack, wash two weeks of laundry, catch up on work, and have Thanksgiving. We arrived home with very little sleep from the ferry ride on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Daniel headed to
The first week of November was preparing for our Italy trip that started on the 8th. Before the end of October I used all our laundry detergent, but on the 31st the pups had a vaccine appointment for kennel cough so we thought we’d stop by the store on November 1st. What we failed to
