My Life's Journey - A Morning Walk To Get On Of The Natures Most Delicious Dessert For Breakfast

I woke up this morning, did my regular routine, and realized I am out of one my favorite things to eat for breakfast. Especially in this time of the year. Nature provides so many things we can simply go out in nature and get some. And, that sometimes requires getting out of the house, getting some fresh air, smelling the flowers, and walking. It was just what I needed. So today, I am going to share my morning walk with you guys, and my trip to get some of the most nutritious desserts nature can offer us. So take a walk with me...


It was not the most beautiful weather outside, but God still gave me enough time to take a nice walk and get some dessert for myself before the storm starts. I am glad I took my phone with so I can snap some photos of my surroundings. There were some really gorgeous flowers around me I had to take a picture off..

Enjoying The Silence

Lately, n my life, I am honestly enjoying the silence more than anything. Especially if I am in nature. I always say God and nature are the greatest artists of all. And, sometimes you truly can't describe how something looks. You can only feel how it makes you feel watching it. Sometimes words are not needed. This maybe was not the most beautiful day I have seen but I found beautiful things inside it anyway. It is all about our perspective and the way see the world aroound us..


The placwhere I am at is called Vojnovec, Kalnicki. It is not so far from our capital city Zagreb. It is a beautiful village surrounded by nature. There is a lot of people here tending to the gardens, and their vineyards. You know, the "forgotten art" of growing your own food and tending to them. I think today, we have wandered away from nature maybe a bit too far. I think growing your own food should be a mandatory thing we should teach future generations in scschools..


Nature's Most Nutritious Gift

Now goinfor a walk and enjoying all the "art" around me was a bonus for me. But the real reason I went for a walk was to get one of the most nutritious and delicious gift nature can offer us. Who in here is a fan of blackberries? lol Well, I know I am and just above my friend's house, there is a field of them really. For the past couple of days, I have been waking up, going to get some for breaeakfast..


Fresh blberries plus a tablespoon of honey to give an energy boost to start my day off. I could definitely get used to this every morning. Blackberries are full of vitamins and minerals our body needs on a daily basis. Especially Vitamin C and anti-oxidants to boost our metaboabolism..


So I peally talked to the bees I will only take how much I need for my breakfast. I promised them I will only pick the ones which are ready to be picked as well. If they are too hard don't pick them. They will be sour. If they are soft and shiny they are ready. Soon I filled up my box and headed home for one of the most nutritious breakfasts I can have. A great start to my morning wouldn't you you say?.

Thank all for reading, have a blessed day, much love,

What a cool walk in such a beautiful area, I do believe I did visit there once the name sounds familiar I think one of my colleagues was from there

and those blueberries freshly picked must have made for a great breakfast

There is nothing like some fresh air and walk in the nature. Plus getting some dessert as well. πŸ˜€

How long did you stay in Croatia for when you visited?

07.08.2019 22:05

Ohh yes I totally agree, I was based in Sarajevo for a total of 1 year one time and 6 months another, but travelled around quite a bit of the area while there, that was about 15 or more years ago I think

The little village you mentioned above looks beautiful. Not even a cloudy day can chip its beauty! With age, we learn to appreciate silence and we enjoy its company more and more.

I agree that the art of growing food should be taught in schools. Children and adults who do not live in a rural area have no clue where their food is coming from!

06.08.2019 13:48

It really is. Next time I am there I will take some more pictures and make a little more extensive post about it. This was just a little piece of its beauty.

And, yes, we truly do learn to appreciate silence a lot more. I am in that stage already. πŸ‘Œ

I enjoyed this walk very much. Looking at the flowers, open fields and gardens were so nice. I agree that we need to get back to growing our own food and teaching our kids how to prepare them.

My neighbor has blackberries growing in her backyard. She just gave us a bunch and I recently froze them. I plan on making a huge blackberry cobbler within the weeks to come :D

I hope you enjoyed yours!

07.08.2019 15:02

Well, yes, we need to go back to the basics. Growing and cooking your own food should be a basic skills every kid should learn at their young age.

Oh you should tag me into your cobbler recipe post when you write it. I want to see that. πŸ‘Œ

07.08.2019 22:12

I couldn’t agree more!

I made the first one and it turned out okay. I’ll be sure to take photos of the next one to share ;)

There is noting better than freshly picked fruit or veggies! Those blackberries must be delicious and of course, full of nutrients. I also admire the picturesque scenery and all the lovely flowers. You are blessed for living in such a heavenly place Durko 🌸😍🌸

Oh, and even though you didn't join FAVM I am giving you an AWARD 😊

Thank you my amazing friend for the badge and for such an amazing comment. You are amazing. 🌹

The blackberries were delicious. Not to mention they are antioxidant powerhouse. One of the best ones out there. Especially coming fresh from the nature like this. πŸ˜€

My pleasure Durko, I am just happy to see you posting about such a delicious and healthy fruit and your beautiful country 😍

You’ve been visited by @riverflows on behalf of Natural Medicine!

TOTALLY agree that that stuff should be taught in schools!!! Your photos are beautiful. God and nature are one and the same to me - how could God be anything but the flowers, the bees, the sky? And omg, blackberries in pancakes - yummmm breakfast! I'd love to go back to Croatia one day. I really liked Zagreb, it was such a neat and beautiful city.

@naturalmedicine it should be a basic we all should know how to do. How to grow and prepare our own food.

And, yes, I definitely agree God and the nature are the same. It is all God.

And, yes, pancakes do sound amazing with them. But, I just added a bit of honey to them and ate them as they were. It was delicious. πŸ˜€

Zagreb is nice yes, but I prefer Dalmatia over Zagreb because it is close the our beautiful Adriatic sea. And, I love the sea.

Thank you for a wonderful comment, have a blessed day. πŸ˜€

What a special post @awakentolife! I really enjoyed the photos and the way your write. It was a feast for the eyes! Sounds like you were really blessed in your walk through nature. I would've also enjoyed those blackberries!

08.08.2019 16:10

@buckaroo thank you for such amazing comment. I enjoyed the walk as much as sharing it with all of you on Steemit.

And, yes, I was blessed with some amazing fresh air, beautiful scenery, and some delicious dessert as well. I can get use to that every day. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Thank you for stopping by my post. Have a blessed day. πŸ˜€

Wow! The summer there sure is very beautiful and so serene!

By the way, are you using Actifit to track your walks (when you do them)?

I am hoping to save up a fitbit later after my mom's surgery is done, but right now the Actifit phone app is pretty useful for me if I am deligent haha.

Thank you sharing your beautiful scenery from your part of the world. Kuala Lumpur is now struck with haze spell so there isn't much really nice to see.

Well, it is beautiful, but hot as heck recently. But, luckily we have beautiful Adriatic see to cool our self in. I am about to go near the ocean soon.

I am actually not using it. Not sure why even though a lot of people seem to be using it and making posts out of them. I might give it a try soon as well. πŸ˜€

What a lovely walk, God certainly is the ultimate artist not so, just amazing to see the beauty in nature! Those blackberries look amazing, I can just imagine a bowl of that with some double thick yogurt and of course some honey for sweetening!
So happy that you're finding peace in the silence and in nature, plus it costs nothing, we just beed to open our eyes and see it :)

10.08.2019 06:11

The ultimate artist he is. The blackberries were delicious. Even though I added a spoon of honey they were sweet enough to eat by themselves.

Recently silence had been my biggest friend. Combined with it's friend the nature. Perfect combination if you ask me. πŸ˜€
