Split, Private boat tour

There are wood ships, sail ships, good ships, but the best ships are friendships. Shutout to my working mom friends, who work their ass off all year long and deserve this kind of trip at least once during summer time!

We hopped on Biseran boat and ask them to take us on sunset tour near Split, because that was the only way three working moms could organize this day trip. Boris from Biseran was task oriented and made for us tailored tour to Čiovo. We took some Gin, fruit, lost’s of positive energy and had the best time we had in a long time! I am sure all mom & dad’s can relate.

This is not paid promotion, but we did go on this trip for free. Nevertheless, our experiences are genuine and we really had the most perfect, memorable time. It was just 3 hours, 15 minute ride from Split, but it felt like we are miles away, relaxed and unbothered. Boris was amazing and catered our every need. This is definitely kind of trip you should gift to yourself.
Let us know if you enjoy it as much as we did!

Bunari Rajčica – 10 bunara

U potrazi za životinjama koje bismo pokazali Oliveru smo završili između sela Nisko i Matasi. Dobri ljudi Instagrama su nam dali ideju da pronađemo bunare Rajčica, deset skoro identičnih “rimskih” bunara u Kliškoj zagori.

Najbolja Google Maps lokacija koju sam mogla pronaći je OVDJE. Postoji i direktna GM lokacija, ali neka vam ona služi samo kao kompas, jer put kojeg predlaže nije skroz točan.
Iz smjera Splita, iza sela Brštanovo prema selu Nisko imate skretanje desno, označeno tablom “Europski fondovi“. Nastavite uzbrdo vatrogasnim putem, nedavno uređenim. Na vrhu brda imate putokaz za bunare, skriven među drvećem pa dobro otvorite oči. Kratki pješački put kroz šumu će vas dovesti do prekrasne zelene livade, Rajčica.

Kada se livada otvori ispred vas vidjeti ćete bunare u suhozidu. Pet bunara ćete pronaći iz prve, za pronaći ostale ćete se morati potruditi jer ih je prekrilo zelenilo. U sredini livade se nalazi i izvor vode, koji lokalci koriste za napojiti blago.

Svaki bunar ima i stepenice koje vode unutra. Legenda kaže da su bunari bili tu i prije dolaska Rimljana te da nikada nisu presušili. Tko zna gdje je dno ovih bunara i što skriva? Ne bojim se litica i stajanja na rubu, ali prema bunaru kojem ne vidim dno imam strahopoštovanje. Iako sam se za fotku namjestila za skok, nema tih para za koje bi ovdje umočila iti mali prst.

Mi smo bili za vikend i bilo je mnoštvo izletnika. Lokalci kažu kako dolazi sve više ljudi, što se najbolje vidi po smeću koji ostane iza njih. Ovo me jako ljuti i rastužuje. Pokupila sam nekoliko plastičnih čaša i opušaka na livadi te ponjela sa sobom da bacim u smeće. Ako čitate moj blog, molim vas da zajedno širimo svjest o ovom problemu. Možete recimo ponjeti boce za višekratnu upotrebu, umjesto plastičnih. Opuške spremajte na jedno mjesto i ponesite ih sa sobom do prvog smeća. Priroda i povijest su nam dali ovo prekrasno mjesto, naša dužnost je da ga sačuvamo za buduće generacije.

Rekla sam vam kako smo tražili životinje i pronašli smo ih! Ako imate sreće nabasati ćete na koze, konje, krave ili magarca. Mi smo se vraćali doma oko 6 popodne i naišli na koze u ispaši. Tu smo sreli i par lokalaca koji su nam ispričali priču o selu, bunarima i životu, a Oliver je oprezno promatrao životinje oko njega. Kroz priču smo saznali da u Matasima ima ranč sa domaćim životinjama, ali nismo imali vremena za njega, ovaj put.

Znate li za još prirodnih i/ili povijesnih lokacija u okolici? Javljajte nam ideje, želimo ih sve posjetiti.

Šetnica Kliško polje – Klis

Kažeš nema putovanja zbog corone? Ako ste iz Splita (ili okolice) svejedno možete “pobjeći” na prekrasna mjesta. Neka smo već ranije obišli i te dragulje možete pronaći na blogu -> 10 lokacija Dalmacije

Nova lokacija koju smo pronašli u našem stražnjem dvorištu je šetnica Kliško polje. Dosta vas je na Instagramu pitalo gdje se nalazi šetnica pa sam zaključila da je najjednostavnije da vam napišem blog sa uputama.

Mi smo došli sa gornje strane, starom cestom, odmah ispod Tvrđave. Imate par ugibališta uz cestu gdje možete parkirati auto.
Upute pronađite -> OVDJE.

Ako dolazite iz smjera Majdana, pred ulaz u šetnicu se nalazi zemljani parking -> OVDJE.

Šetnica od 2 kilometra je nedavno uređena i tu možete pronaći bezbroj mostića koji idu uz potok. Nisu postavljene klupice, stoga za piknik ponesite dekicu i uživajte na travi.

Mi smo išli sa klokanicom, ali može se bez problema voziti i dječja kolica. Putem smo naišli i na bicikliste, za koje je ova šetnica raj. Biciklistička staza nije zahtjevna, a pročitala sam da ima 7 kilometara.

Povedite i pse, nema zabrane.

UPDATE: Dobila sam nekoliko poruka kako se pomoću Google Maps lokacija koje su navedene u našem blogu ne može doći do Kliškog polja pa evo malo boljih objašnjenja:

Sa gornje strane, prema Klisu, link zeza jer vam u jednom trenutku kaže da skrenete desno – a nema skretanja – pa nastavite cestom koja vas vodi prema dole. Uključite svoj unutrašnji GPS i dođite do makadama koji će vas u jednom trenu dovesti do lokacije tog linka. 🚙

Iz Solina pratite link točno sve do zadnjih 100 metara. Kada krenu serpentine prema Klisu sa lijeve strane imate oštro skretanje na makadamski put, dobro uređen sa okretištem za aute na kraju (osim ako se neki seljak ne parkira na okretište). Ako ste, prateći link, prošli veeeeeeliku strmu i grbavu okuku, prešišali ste skretanje i vratite se nazad. 🤟

Još jednom prisežem da ću snimiti upute, do tada, idite za mirisom rijeke i šume. 💚

Ideju za ovaj izlet nam je dao IG profil @dontmissklis, tamo možete pronaći još nekoliko fantastičnih lokacija na Klisu. Mi definitivno planiramo obići još niz prirodnih ljepota u okolici, stoga nas pratite na Instagramu i putujte s nama!

Diano i Pave SMaSHirali!

Prošli vikend, od 23.01. do 25.01., u donjem Mandrillu održani su “Dani piva u Mandrilla”. Osim dobre zabave, ića i pića ljubitelji pive mogli su prijaviti svoje pive na “SMaSH Home Brew natjecanje“. Zadatak je bio skuhati pivu s jednim ječmom i hmeljom (Single Malt and Single Hop, SMaSH, kužiš?). Prijavilo se 10 ekipa, međutim 8 ih je pristupilo natjecanju jer dvije pive nisu uspile.

Stručni žiri dobio je pive bez imena i odlučivali su iskuljučivo na temelju arome, izgleda, okusa i teksture.
Prvo mjesto osvojili su Diano i Pave sa njihovom “31 Brewing Co.” pivom iz garaže. Kuhaju preko 3 godine i iako je ponekad bilo teško kuhati, zbog nedostatka vremena i financija, nikada nisu odustajali od svog hobija i strasti. Danas su pobjednici prvog ovakvog natjecanja u Splitu. Svaka čast momci! Htjela uložiti sve na bankovnom računu u vašu pivu prvog dana, kada se kuhalo u stanu na Gripama. Danas na računu nemam ništa, ali imate moju podršku zauvijek! 🙂

Drugo mjesto podjelili su Bratska Pivovara i Petar Generalić. Međutim, najbolja nagrada ovog natjecanja je što smo dobili priliku upoznati sve vas odlične pivare, entuzijaste i ljubitelje craft pive!

Što se tiče samog trodnevnog događaja “Dani Piva u Mandrilla”, on vam je izgledao ovako. Prvi dan na točionike su se spojile pivovara Valens  (Vinkovci) i Positive Brewery (Zagreb).

Drugi dan uživali smo u prezentaciji hrane i pića Zagrebačke Craft pivovare Pivnica i pivovara Mlinarica. A večer je začinio Juta Spiza “Hot Wings Challenge”, gdje su natjecatelji (i gosti) otišli kući “dobro začinjeni”. Prvo mjesto podijelili su Mario Vidić i kuhar iz Pivovare Mlinarica koji su pojeli čak 13 komada ljutih krilaca. Probala sam jedan, ne krilce nego griz, i skoro se zapalila koliko je bilo papreno!
Diano je sudjelovao i u ovom natjecanju, međutim prvi je odustao na 3 komada i do kraja vikenda rigao vatru. Hvali juto, drž se pive!

Lumer Shop je imao prodaju majci po promotivnim cijenama, a cijeli događaj je zaokružio Band La Grange Tribute to zz top “koncert”, zadnji dan.

Može li bolje od ovoga?
Naravno da može! Mi se nadamo da će se događaj ponoviti i dogodine pa ćemo ga učiniti još boljim i većim! Slobodno nam javite svoje ideje na @dianomaya ili @mandrillsbrewpub i sve suvisle prijedloge ćemo probat ostvariti!

Does it have to be perfect?

Hello World?

Where are you now? I am in office, writing another blog to you. This is a story about how we were waiting for a perfect day to drive outside city. Unfortunately, that day never came. Our story begins how we went anyway :).

We drove from Split to Sinj, with our car, small car, tiny Smart Car. It serves us so well. Maybe we should name it? Any suggestions?

Anyways, it was raining, so we decided to skip too much walking around town and went strait to “Old Town”, old fortress above Sinj city. The people of Sinj simply call the Town.

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0011.JPG

We walked trough most beautiful forest up. On the way up, famous Croatian Sculptors made Stations of the Cross, a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ‘s last day on Earth as a man. Sculptures are pretty good actually. We were discussing difference in sculpting man and female body, these sculptors definitely paid attention to woman’s body on “Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem”, 8th station. Go check it out 🙂

In the center of the fortress is Sanctuary of the Miraculous Lady of Sinj. One of the largest celebration of Feast of Assumption of the blessed virgin Mary is in Sinj, on 15 August. Pilgrims from all over the world come to Sinj with only one aim – to kneel with hands clasped in front of the Miraculous Madonna of Sinj.

It also offers amazing town view!

Rain started, croup actually, so we took our drone down and got back on the road. We were looking for Kosinac spring. It took us a wile to find it in a rain. If you decide to go there, let us help you with some instructions: HERE.

Now, let us show you why you should go there!

Sinj_Croatia_DianoMaya-1166854

Sinj_Croatia_DianoMaya-1166861

Sinj_Croatia_DianoMaya-1166867

Legend says, whoever drinks from Kosinac spring, his soul will be filled with new energy. You can believe in legends, or not, but we came with positive attitude and we are leaving with one!

Rain just didn’t want to stop falling. Well, what can you do? Does it really have to be perfect? There is so much beauty around us, so if you really want to travel every day explore your surroundings even on a rainy day. I don’t just mean literal rain, the water drops from the sky. I also mean, when you have rain on your mind & soul. Go outside! Travel every day in the “micro world”, it is beautiful and it is waiting for you!

That said, thank you for being so wonderful and reading my story till the end. Tell me, have you ever written similar story?

Wonderful little “Medieval charmer”

Hello world!

We are in Trogir, just few kilometers from Split, our hometown. We have several friends who live there (remember Maja & Milan from Drvenik Mali story?), but still we don’t visit it enough and we need to change that, because it is gorgeous seaside city!

Let me tell you why we think you should put Trogir on your “bucket list”.

TrogirCroatia_DianoMaya-1166347

Trogir is UNESCO heritage city which, I heard, people call “little Venice”, “Museum-city” and many other names. I call it “Medieval charmer” :).
It is 30 minute car drive from Split city (please note, in summer there are huge traffic jams towards Trogir, so sometimes it takes 1 hour or more to reach city). Town is located on island, but bridges connect it to mainland.

It is small city, so it can be included even in the fastest schedule. You can literally walk it in 30 minutes, but don’t. If you are planing to stay in town over night, you can easily find affordable accommodation here -> BOOKING.

START at The Land Gate (Kopnena Vrata) and get lost in “street maze“! While walking trough alleys you will bump into most unexpected beauty of stone arches & walls, colorful doors and charming Mediterranean courtyards.

Find your way to Trogir Cathedral (Katedrala Sv. Lovre). Apparently, the best views of the city are from tower of St. Lawrence Cathedral. We didn’t get a to chance to see it, but if you did, let us know (in comments below) if that is true!
Instead, we hung out with our friend Marina on Main Square. It was Christmas time, therefore it was accordingly decorated.

 

TrogirCroatia_DianoMaya-1166318

TrogirCroatia_DianoMaya-1166320

You exit city walls trough “porta civitatis” to waterfront promenade. You will find most spectacular boats and yachts docked at the promenade. In summer time, plenty family-owned restaurants and taverns open their doors for most amazing gastronomical experience. You can walk promenade in 5 minutes, from one end to other. At the end, rises beautiful Kamerlengo castle which was, unfortunately, closed.

If you have car & time, go to the Trogir Marina, from where you can get perfect city landscape photos. Aim to get there in “golden hour” 🙂

We rated Trogir as a perfect town for Instagramers. What do you think?

Read more about our visit here: https://goo.gl/RB2Jjw

3. Behind the business meeting in Vis
Maya‘s family has a house on island Vis, so we look for any excuse to visit island. This time we were there on business, but we managed to film some behind the scenes for you.

4. Senko’s konoba, island Vis food paradise
We were invited by Senko Karuza, the best Croatian short-story writer, to his konoba (type of Dalmatian restaurant) in little town by the sea, Mala Travna (Mola Trovna, as locals call it). Senko is not only the best writer, he is also artist in kitchen.

Autumn on Hvar island, Croatia

Hello world!

We are taking a break from YouTube this week, but that doesn’t mean other channels will suffer. We have been posting on Instagram and Facebook regularly.

😍 Are you following us jet?
INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/dianomaya/
FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/dianomaya/

I (Maya) visited HVAR island last weekend with my girls and Diano stayed in our Split home editing Frode Borge videos. Check him out, if you haven’t already -> Frode.

So, since we took a break from video I packed light. That means no Lumix, no GoPro, no tripod, no Mavic drone (pictures will be lover quality). Just swim suit, warm clothes for night time (always bring warm clothes when visiting island) and jumped on Jadrolinija ferry from Split with Andrea & Maja. We took car with us, which made ferry ticket super expensive. Find prices here -> Car ferry.

On island Hvar, we arrived in Stari Grad. It was very late, so we had dinner in the city.
Our pick was cozy little tavern called “La Gitana“, recommended by my friend Tea. The food was amazing and it’s host, Mateo, wonderful! He welcomed us to island with couple shots of rakija and good time.

la gitana

We booked lovely Pension Tamaris in Sveta Nedjelja on south side of island Hvar. Book accommodation on island Hvar -> HERE. There isn’t much to do in Sveta Nedjelja and we wanted just that – do nothing. We ended up doing so much of “nothing”, so keep reading :).

In the morning we had coffee in our Pension with a million dollar view.

Hvar island_dianomaya-9572

We went for a walk around the village. This picturesque place by the sea is famous for Zlatan otok Marina, Restaurant and under sea wine cellar.

Hvar island_dianomaya-9576

When in Sveta Nedjelja, you cannot miss the Lučišća beach. Take a swim in crystal clear turquoise blue sea.

Hvar island_dianomaya-9631

Hvar island_dianomaya-9614

We had late lunch/early dinner in “Dvor Duboković Tavern” in village Pitve, typical Dalmatian village with stone houses, narrow paved streets and untouched nature.

After dinner, we drove to city of Hvar for a drink. There isn’t much to say about Hvar, that I haven’t already. City has so much beauty and history, on one hand, and crazy night life, on the other. It is also the most expensive city on island, so come “money prepared”.

IMG_8964

Next, and our last day, we went for a morning swim. Having a car on island Hvar is an amazing thing. You wake up in the morning and just pick one, of many beautiful beaches, for your morning swim. This time we drove (and walked) to Gromin Dolac beach. From Zavala the dirt road leads east towards the village of Gromin Dolac. We found a parking in the woods and walked to series of perfectly clean, azure blue beaches.

Hvar island_dianomaya-9657

Hvar island_dianomaya-9664

We were alone for hours, just enjoying quiet crickets song, smell of pine forests and the calm beauty of Adriatic sea. Only thing that was able to move us from that beach was HUNGER :). We hoped in car and drove to Vrbovska for lunch. Food was horrible, skip Konoba Lem, but city is lovely.

Hvar island_dianomaya-9669

Last night in Hvar, we bumped into my friend Žile, remember him from our Escape blog? He invited girls to see Escape, so after lunch, he & Monga picked us up with boat in Basina bay and drove us to hidden Escape location. Girls loved it!

When I reflect on this trip, I have a feeling like we were on Hvar for a month, but in reality it was just 2 days. Having 2 days off, sometimes, it is all the time you need to recharge. Honestly, being with Andrea and Maja on this trip, made Hvar so much better!

Call your friends right now and organize trip to Hvar! Take a car and visit several places, like we did. If you have questions about how to get to certain beach, food cost or tips for car transport, hit us down with question in comments. I would love to help you!

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.

Os kolac_Maja-6752

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 🙂

Os kolac_Maja-6873

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!

When to visit Split?

Hello world!

It is very hard to write about city you’ve lived in (for bigger part of your life), but that doesn’t mean we won’t try :). Let’s start with WHEN to visit Split, Croatia?

img_4685

If you are looking for cultural experience of Split city only (like museum, galleries and theater), you can visit all year round. Split is vibrant city with plenty of things going on. Still, we would avoid January (after New Year) and February, completely. In that period most old town restaurants & shops are closed.

March, April and May are reserved for lower accommodation prices and spring outdoor adventures. Go inland! There are numerous wonderful places close to Split. We just visited beautiful Imotski city and lakes, maybe you’ve seen it on our Instagram page (we will write about it in our next blog).

If you feel adventurous, join a biking or hiking tour (Biokovo and Kozjak mountains are interesting to explore).

Krka or/and Plitvice National Park can be fun day tour from Split, in that period (but also in summer season).

In April Split hosts Boat Show and Half Marathon race. On May 7th Split celebrates its patron saint, St. Domnius (Sv. Duje). Festivities include various events, exhibits, fairs, bingo on Riva, and concerts.

If your idea of vacation is swimming and visiting islands, don’t come before June. You don’t want to see islands in winter times, you really don’t! So, June marks beginning of summer season, which ends in September. July & August are high season months. June to September is time when Split and Croatia don’t sleep. It beats and breaths tourists and everything touristy. You want to swim, you can! Want to try best restaurants, they are all open! Thinking about renting a boat and explore Adriatic coast, vendors will fight for you! Ferry lines are also more frequent. Nightlife gets crazy and there are festivals everywhere (film and music). Oh, and it is hot, very hot! So, jump into that beautiful Adriatic sea and chill for a while!

We call October “Indian summer” period; or as locals call it “Granny summer” (literal translation). Sea is still warm enough to swim, but there aren’t many tourists at the beach. There is less crowd in the city and prices are lower again.

November and December are definitely off season months, but there is plenty going on in that period. Most famous event is ‘Advent in Split‘ which takes place on the Riva promenaded and nearby streets, from early December through to early January. There are events, concerts, traditional crafts, food & drinks houses and festive atmosphere. Advent is very popular among locals, but tourist seem to enjoy it too. If you have time to visit Zagreb, this is the best time! Zagreb “Christmas market” was voted (two times in a row) “European Best Christmas Market”. You can find out more in our Zagreb blog: here!
