This is my second trip to Ohrid this year. You can check out my previous trip here.

The weather was not good at all. It was raining all day. But that didn’t stop me from doing anything. I was sightseeing all day.

Every time I go somewhere, I try to buy jewelry that will make me remember the trip.

First, here are my Sunstone bracelet and earrings:

And second, these are my Tigers eye earrings and bracelet:

I don’t know anything about this materials and that’s why I did my homework. While I was surfing on the net I found out that Tiger’s eye stone is actually a semi-precious stone. Now, I’m even happier with my jewelry 🙂 .

I am back, people!

My summer vacation is over and I’m back home now.

Croatia is a beautiful country. I had the chance to visit my relatives there and also I relaxed a lot (that means swimming and sunbathing). And the not so good part of my vacation is that Me and my family were working at our house.

I had my crochet kit with me there so I can crochet a little bit, but I didn’t even touch the crochet hook. I wasn’t in the mood for that. This year I was reading books. I was on the beach all day and enjoying the view. You can see my beach bag here:

This bag is a gift from a friend and I love it very much. As I’m looking at it, I can see that this is an interesting crocheted technique. It’s not crocheting with a wire but is crocheting on a wire.

Tomorrow I’m going on a vacation. It is going to be a long one – a month. And the destination-Croatia.

Finally, I will be able to swim all day, read books and relax .

Dear blog friends,

see you when I get back.

I’ve been on a trip in Ohrid that lasted two days(26-27.04.2007). Two days walking with joy.

Ohrid is a very beautiful city.It is a cultural, spiritual and tourist center of Macedonia. I like it because of it’s architecture and historic monuments.The traditional woodcarving school is dating from the 14th century and you can find original handmade wood carvs here. You can also find unique handmade jewelery like filigree and Ohrid pearl.

Ohrid is a great city.I’ve had a wonderful time.You can see some of the pictures that I made.

The beautiful and transparent Ohrid Lake is one of the largest in Europe.It is 4-10 milion years old.There are more than 200 endemic species (flora and fauna) living at the bottom of the sea.

The Church St. Jovan Kaneo is dedicated to St.Jovan Bogoslov.This church originates from the 13th century. Here it is:

Antic theatre:

The Samoil fortress stands on the hill above the town.I didn’t get a chance to get in because it was very late, but I took a picture of the outside walls:

I didn’t had a chance to see all of the “treasures” in Ohrid, but hopefully I will soon.
