Did it ever happen to you that after staying somewhere, like a vacation destination for too long, you start calling it your home?.. Not specifically, it just pops up when you’re at the store talking to a friend on your phone and you say ~ ‘I’ll call you when I get home’ thinking of the apartment where you’re staying. It happens to me quite often, and when it does I know I grew fond of the destination where I am, I know that the trip was worth it because I’m relaxed and enjoying myself enough to call it a home.

In a few photos that I’ve taken of Split I’ll try and show you how beautiful it is.

As I mentioned before, one of my grandfathers was from the island of Brač and the other from the island of Korčula. Most of my family is still living on the islands in the Adriatic, not to mention those who moved to Canada, Argentina, Australia, Germany and a lot more countries, but sticking to the Adriatic coast my father’s half-brother and his family…
