834. Spain Part 1 | La Coruna & Santiago

Tower of Hercules drone
I finally have some time now for the first blog post of Spain. We arrived a few weeks ago to La Coruna where we have our base for now. If you've followed my blog for awhile you may have seen my posts from here in the past. It is my boyfriend's hometown and where his family lives so we've come together a few times already..I think this is my 4th time visiting. For the first couple of weeks we had 2 friends come to visit from Toronto. So I haven't had much time at all to keep up with my blog and also work and everything, it is quite overwhelming. I am now very behind on all my posts and I don't know when I'll be able to finish with them all lol. I can't believe in the past I used to do daily travel posts on some of my trips.

Right now as I'm making this blog post we are in Madrid for a few days. We came once around Christmas 2018 (my first time). I really like it here. I will hopefully have those posts up soon but for now you can follow me on Instagram for some live updates!

Here is a big post of the past few weeks around La Coruna and Santiago de Compostela! Here in the photo above is their famous landmark, the Tower of Hercules. We accidentally chose the foggiest day to walk up there but it made for some cool drone shots.

833. Zagreb Part 2 | Last Day & Museum of Broken Relationships

St Mark's Church Zagreb
Another month has flown by and already our time in Croatia is coming to an end. Tomorrow we will leave for Spain (to my boyfriend's hometown of La Coruna). This month went by really fast. I guess because we were quite busy here and managed to take a few staycations away (Rovinj, Split, Dubrovnik, Mostar, Plitvice..all of which I will post about eventually lol). I really enjoyed Zagreb more than I thought I would and will miss it. I admit that before we came, I thought it would kind of a boring city. It was good to have our base here. I really enjoyed Croatia overall and the side trips were a lot of fun. We also got pretty nice weather. So next month we will be in Spain and going to do a side trip to Luxembourg to visit my friend which I'm very excited about!

Zagreb has a lot of quirky museums. The most famous is the Museum of Broken Relationships. It was so packed when we went there on a random Monday. It's such a unique concept and at first I was sceptical about it but I actually really enjoyed it. The museum displays various items sent in by people who have experienced a broken relationship - items from the relationship that they kept. Each piece is accompanied by a short story about it. Mostly they are romantic relationships but there's a section for family broken relationships (death). Some stories were funny and some were sad.

This is a set of mini furniture sent in from a girl in Korea. Her and her boyfriend would imagine the kind of house they would have in the future and made mini furniture pieces. Unfortunately they broke up before getting a chance to paint them.
