Robinson style vacation on Drvenik Mali

Hello World!

We are in Drvenik Mali, tiny island near Trogir. Our friends Maja and Milan have been posting their summer pictures on Instagram (make sure you follow them -> majaimore) and gave us serious wanderlust! So, we invited ourselves :).

We drove from Split to Trogir and parked our car there. There are free parking places in the city (if you have time and patience to look for it), but you can also leave your car on paid Public parking, near Jadrolinija ticket office. Maja and Milan have a car on island, so we didn’t have to go with ours. However, you can take car on board the ferry to Drvenik Mali, but then you have to embark in ferry port Seget Donji (not Trogir). The boat departs from the Trogir and Seget Donji waterfront to Drvenik Mali and back to Trogir every day.

So, we took Jadrolinija ferry in Trogir and enjoyed smooth sail to Drvenik Mali. Keep in mind, ferry’s first stop is Drvenik Veli, you go out on second stop.

Island has no paved roads and there is not much to do there; but it has beaches from your dreams! Maja & Milan studio house has no TV, internet or electricity, but has outdoor fireplace and two happy people! Let’s not forget Marina Abaza inflatable bed (without a plug) and there is nothing else you need for stress free vacation.

Their house is in Vela Rina bay, well hidden beautiful sandy beach in the of middle Dalmatia. So, all you have to do in the morning is take your beach towel, swimsuit & flipflops (well, camera too, if you are photography freak, like us) and stroll down to the beach.

Hotel also offers massages and we gladly booked 4, well 2 each :). Our review is simple: Book as many massages as you can afford! Getting a massage, with calm and relaxing music in background you can easily free yourself from everyday stress, refresh your body and find a moment for yourself.

Take your pleasures seriously

Wanna cake?

Os kolac_Maja-6761

We indulge our “sweet pleasures” whenever we can and as much as we can. This time road took us to Split, Croatia, local pastry shop called “O’š kolač” (which name translates “do you want a cake?”). Yes, is such an obvious answer.

Shop is tucked away from Split busy streets in Ćiril Metodova 4, where we were greeted with two pelicans at the entrance and swept away how cute shop is designed.

O’š kolač is paradise for people who take their “sweet pleasures” seriously. Who can resist bite of olive oil, lavender and rosemary biscuits with mascarpone and honey cream, all arranged perfectly in cookie “Čičak” (transl. Burdock)? We know Maya can’t :).

Os kolac_Maja-6844

In O’š kolač pastry shop you can find cakes, cookies, biscuits, fresh juices, “golden milk”, coffee and cold tea selections. Well thought out little bites full of flavors.

Pastry chef and O’š kolač owner Tea Mamut, once, served famous movie stars (such as Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson and Roger Federer), now she is serving us, humans! We were lucky enough and met her. It is safe to say Maya was starstruck 🙂

We tried almost everything in the shop and picked our favorites. Diano’s favorite is “Šinjorina Malina” (transl. Miss Raspberry) and Maya’s “Buža” (transl. Hole).

Let us know which one is yours!

Earth Day celebration above Omiš

Hello world!

Our friend Pave invited us to the hiking event in Omiš, we didn’t ask much, just said YES! We have been to Omiš with Pave before (video below) and we always like coming back.

Event was “hello to the spring” in honor of Earth Day and it was held on the Omiška Dinara mountain. Pave convinced us it is only 20 minute light walk, it wasn’t :). It is approximately 40 minute walk up, medium heavy. For Maya, who is out of shape, felt harder than that. But, however you rate level of incline, one thing is 100% true – it is worth it! Views from top of the mountain are breathtaking!

Climb starts from place Borak, above Omiš, and first stop was Mountain hut “Imber”.

Mountaineers from all different Croatian Mountaineering Association were there with their families; cooking beans, playing funny games, sharing a laugh and stories.

We didn’t plan to go all the way to the top “Kula“, but Jesena (Pave’s friend) convinced us that views are even better than what we’ve seen so far. How can you say no to that?

Was it worth it? Let us know in comments below 🙂
