We packed up all our things in our beautiful home in Rijeka and left. I went to Zagreb to do another month of intensive language course, which keeps me quite busy with loads of homework. While we left Rijeka in a comfortable 25°C sunshine, in Zagreb it was the first winter weekend with 10°C fog and cold.
Despite the weather, that has been considerably better lately, I love the city. It is much more lively than Rijeka, and although it misses the sea view, there is much more going on! And, there is swing dancing here, so I finally got to practice a bit. A rather new development are the numerous second-hand shops that keep popping up. They mainly sell really crappy old stuff in large sizes, but the true thrifter can find some treasures. Some of my favourite skirts are from Zagreb, for very little money.
Luckily, there a few second-hand shops along the street that connects my neighbourhood to the centre, so they are ideally located for a quick browse… The first day I found this gorgeous green pencil skirt. it sits perfectly and the colour is a unique addition to my wardrobe. Somehow I have a soft spot for black skirts, and now making a conscious effort to counterbalance that. I hope the weather stays nice enough so I can wear a few times before it’s time for the all-covering winter coat.
I did some more thrifting in Zagreb, but soon more about that!
