MY LAST VACATION WAS GREEN, SUNNY & DELICIOUS, in the lovely mountains of Croatia.

COUNTRYSIDE ALWAYS SURPRISES ME BY HOW SELF-SUSTAINING IT IS. You would think a city is developed, but then you realize that villages and countryside are really the main sources of food and that cities (and their supermarkets) would be nothing without them.

IS IT STRANGE THAT THE FIRST THING THAT FLEW INTO MY MIND just now is: how did they have food on Star Fleet – I mean they didn’t have a meadow or anything on board? Although I do remember an episode where there were some Star Fleet staff in a sort of garden room, tending to some plans?!

FROM (ORGANICALLY GROWN) GREEN VEGETABLES, to ultimate long-keeping foods like the potato, the countryside grows it all.

Fruits are in abundance, too – delicious plums and ripe, juicy pears.

LUCKILY I AM A MORNING PERSON – preparing freshly picked corn cobs in the morning, for a tasty lunch in the afternoon!

In the countryside, the nature is your supermarket, and everything is free. Awesome. Look at us poking those pears with a stick.

FINALLY, WHAT’S COUNTRYSIDE WITHOUT A BBQ? Countless zucchinis from the garden were delicious grilled and served alongside (organic) meat and a big summer salad!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you too have (had) a lovely summer holiday (or that you at least feel inspired for one, after seeing these countryside photos 🙂 ).
