Krk Island 

The largest island in the Adriatic sea, located in the Bay of Kvarner. It is the most populous Croatian island and is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its proximity to west and central Europe, and it is well connected with both a bridge to the mainland and Rijeka International Airport. Beautiful sandy or pebbly beaches and water slides for kids and wine for the parents. Baska is located on Krk’s southern shore and abounds in beaches. Some thirty pebbled beaches accessible to swimmers of all ages, while some of them have to be reached on foot or by boat. Still, the biggest and one of the most beautiful is Baska’s Vela Plaza, the Great Beach, right in the center of town, surrounded by bars, restaurants, pizzerias, cafes, hotels, private flats and other things all of which are an integral part of the place’s attractions.

Rab

Rab the island of Rab there are several small towns and villages scattered over the island. One of them bears the same name as the island. City of Rab is mostly known for its four church bell towers which became the symbol of the town and island, and the town patron is St. Christopher.
Clean and clear sea, beautiful nature, and the hospitality of Rab inhabitants are known attributes of Rab which will make your stay here special. Rab is an island of contrasts. On the north coast of the island, resembling a stone wall, stretches the barren hill Kamenjak, which protects the south of the island from strong winds from the continent. The south is rich in Mediterranean vegetation and beautiful sandy and rocky beaches. Everyone can find a place for themselves on island of Rab. of sand, shallow, crystal clear and warm sea water (up to 28°C in the Summer months), the greenest pine forest which offers protection and shade are surely just some of the reasons why numerous guests are attracted. Due to the shallow sea level, the beach is perfect for inferior swimmers, children and elderly people.

How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!

I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
