6 Adriatic Must Haves

Posted by Teodora Antunovich on June 25, 2017

These are my must-have items for your suitcase when visiting Italy and Croatia's Adriatic this summer.

1.       Turkish Towel

These trendy threads are the most versatile item to pack for your summer travels. Turkish towels pack small, dry quickly and become softer with every wash. They are perfect for lounging on the beach and double as a scarf or sarong!

2.       Linen Shirt

You cannot go wrong with a white linen shirt for any occasion. The natural fibres breathe, keeping you cool and protecting your skin from the sun. The white shirt is also a style classic  - layer it as a cover-up over your swimwear, tucked into your jeans or tied over a summer dress. Whether you’re sailing on a yacht or dressing up for an evening at dinner, it’s perfect for hot days or balmy nights.

3.       Summer Dress

Definitely pack a breezy summer dress to take you anywhere from sightseeing to romantic evenings. Choose something light and classy – dress up with heels or get comfortable with tennis shoes for your tours. It’s a chance to play with your wardrobe, so don’t be afraid to go for patterns or colour!

4.       White Sneakers

These are your daytime must-have for sightseeing. At home on boats, walking tours and relaxing on a beach, pair these with denim or your staple summer dress. I never travel without them.

5.       Bath Bag

It helps to stay organised on your busy trips. Always pack a gorgeous bath bag – how dreamy are the florals and whites! This will keep your suitcase free of clutter, and make you smile every time you get ready for the day.

6.       Statement Earrings

This little item will elevate anything you pair it with. Add instant charm to your casual daywear or evening outfits. I’m packing my favourite pair!

Meet Teodora

Wanderlust is a beautiful thing, and I feel so lucky to follow its calling. 

I am delighted to announce that I am packing my suitcase to explore Croatia, the gorgeous country of my family heritage. My path will also lead through Spain, Italy, Slovenia and Montenegro, just to mention a few spots! Follow my blog for adventures, insider tips and insights into Croatia and Europe travel and culture.

My connection to culture started from a young age. Growing up in Auckland, New Zealand’s most cosmopolitan city, and my family’s love for our Croatian heritage, inspired my passion for cultural diversity and people. Although my initial plan was to pursue a career in media, I realised my true calling was with travel and culture. I decided to enter our family-owned travel agency – Croatia Times Travel, where I work as a sales & marketing coordinator.

I am excited to connect with the friendly locals, discover new flavours and experience some of the most stunning sights in the Adriatic's brightest gem. A few destinations that I never fail to visit include the Dalmatian Coastline, Zagreb, and the Istria region. I will definitely be adding new places to my list this year.

I hope that my passion for travelling and celebrating the riches Croatia has to offer will inspire a few of you to go on a European adventure yourselves. The world is a fascinating place waiting to be discovered, and Croatia, with its secluded beaches, delicious foods, charming cafes and historic sites, is the perfect starting point.
