Snapshots of Pula

For the record, I realize it’s moderately creepy to take pictures of other people’s laundry.

But when it’s this cute, can you really blame me?? Like, what… I was just supposed to walk by this without taking a picture?!

More than anything, I’m sad that I only had my iPhone with me. This color-coordinated laundry line, oh-so-casually basking in the sun deserves a snazzy camera, several different angles, and a glossy magazine spread. I wanted to yell “YAS, LAUNDRY! WORK IT. GIVE ME MORE.”

But I realized that might be taking it too far.

I’ll keep the rest of my internal monologue to myself. (Well, mostly.) But here are a few other snapshots of Croatian life from our month in Pula.

Yes, this is their version of a carport. (AND YES, I LOVE IT.)

More leafy, vine-y, grape-filled parking structures. Croatia, you kill me.

Croatia even has me taking pics of flowers. (There must be something in the water.)

Y’all, if obsessively taking pictures of ordinary objects is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

You can always find beauty in the little things. And in Pula, Croatia, it’s especially easy.

I mean, maybe don’t scream at hanging laundry, or parking structures, or mailboxes “IF YOU’VE GOT IT, FLAUNT IT!” But definitely snap a quick picture.

    Hi! I am from Pula. I found your blog because of all the fuss about Zadarians and their nasty comments. I got to say, i am a little disappointed you said so many bad things about Zadar. However, unlike most of the people, i completely respect your opinion. Everybody has a different taste in traveling. I myself, love to travel and have visited many beautiful countries around Europe and there were actually some that i didn’t really like. It happens. But i would like you to know that Croatians are extremely proud of their roots and cities they come from, we are famous by being proud of it. So all the insults you got are not just because you offended their city, but them too. I hope you will enjoy your future travels. Have a nice day:)
