Back in the USA (also, Croatia Pics)!

This summer, I went on 18 airplanes and nine countries over three months.

It was a complete whirlwind of an experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I saw more people from more places than I think I ever have before. I learned so much not just from my courses in Geneva/London, but from learning to adapt to different Western cultures. I've been back in the United States for three days. It sort of feels like I never left, because I've found myself back in my parents house in New Jersey. At the same time, I've been running into a bit of reverse culture shock again. It's not as bad as when I came back from China last summer, but it's still something

Anyways, I had a fantastic time in Croatia. It was definitely one of my favourite countries that I visited this summer. First, we went to a park that has eighteen waterfalls. It is easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

The next day we went to Split. I think Split is kind of a funny name, but it's an enchanting city. I am already making plans to go back. 

Dubrovnik is a very neat walled city. They shoot Game of Thrones in both Split and Dubrovnik, so it was fun to walk around and see some of the locations. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know where this is within the Game of Thrones universe. If you don't, you should 1) follow me on Instagram and 2) guess where this place is before you cheat by looking it up.

So, now that I'm stateside again it's back to more random things about my life. Thankfully, I'm doing exciting things this summer (sort of). I've started a workout/stretch regime that I'll blog about sometime later, I'm eating healthier, and I've learned some new beauty tricks. It's safe to say that all is well in Natalie's world!


  1. Haha, when I first heard of Split it sounded funny to my ears for hours (Lake Bled in Slovenia is also funny). I heard that it was beautiful, though. Dubrovnik, too! Your pictures are so pretty! As for Game of Thrones, it looks familiar, but I was never committed enough to the show to remember place names, haha ;)

  2. Hi Erin! I'm glad you like the pictures. Lake Bled sounds really funny too. The location is "Black Water Bay"!
    Cheers, Natalie
