It is always an exciting time when the tourists arrive.
Of course, their arrival was considerably delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, which was kind of like missing Aunt Flo, who inevitably arrives on July 4 come hell or high water.
Tourists do get on the locals’ nerves because they tend to be clueless, but on the other hand, they bring a new slant to daily life in somewhat monotone Dalmatia.
Today, passing by our park, I noticed some friendly tourists doing some impromptu Yoga in the park. It’s not that Croatians don’t do yoga. We do, but usually in the privacy of our living rooms or a yoga studio.
A little background: This town park is conveniently situated right next to the bus stop. Older adults meet and chat, travelers drink coffee and wait for buses, teenagers flirt and eat ice cream cones. Grandmas and moms watch their toddlers scamper around.
If you ever felt like trying yoga in the privacy of your own home, I recommend Yoga with Adriene, a kind and helpful. teacher. Yoga with Adriene
Another great fitness video I discovered is how to improve poor posture, caused by inactive muscles by – let’s face it – too much sitting: 10-minute Posture Routine
Anyway, as you can tell by the intrigued onlooker, this is how it looks when tourists come to Croatia and do yoga in the park. People here unabashedly stare, but go on with their lives. The color green is so vibrant here. Maybe it’s magnified by the incredibly high humidity in this air these days.
Hooray for Summer! Let’s keep on moving it – and be healthy.
