    VALENCIA: BOTANICAL GARDENS

    As promised, I am sharing some photos we took during our visit of botanical gardens in Valencia. As you know, we always try to visit botanical gardens when we travel (if only there is one), so of course we visited one in Valencia. It was such a lovely garden and we went there early in the morning, right after breakfast, so there weren’t many people there at the time. This post is more “photography orientated“, meaning emphasis si not on the text. First of all, I like to mix up styles of my posts, second of all I didn’t have time to write as much and belive it or not,…

    AZORES: A PLACE WHERE I SAID “YES”

    Huh, okay here we go again. I can start this post by “it’s been a while”, like any other post I’ve written recently. I had no time to write blog posts on the top of everything else that’s been going on for the last couple of months, so that’s the main reason why there’s been a lack of posts. How original of me, I know. I’ve finally decided to write a bit about our engagement. I know some of you requested I share our story, so that’s what I’m doing. And I don’t want this post to come up as some “blogger sharing their amazing story of how they got…

    SAN MARINO

    Italy is definitely one of my favourite and most beautiful countries in Europe. Two months ago we travelled to the capital of Italy, Rome ( you can read more about our trip to Rome  here and here ) and now we decided to explore Italy some more. This time I went with my family, as my better half was not able to go because of his job. Our first stop was San Marino, which is a tiny state within Italy. I have never been to San Marino before and it was about time I add another country to my “countries I have visited” list.  Based on Google images San Marino is very beautiful and unique,…

    Copenhagen part 2

    Have you ever experienced a situation where you travel somewhere with certain expectations, and when you arrive to your destination everything is even hundred times better than you expected? That’s how it was with our trip to Copenhagen. After the surprise with our airbnb, which turned out to be super awesome, there was another pleasant surprise waiting for us – the weather. What are the odds of having warm sunny days in Copenhagen in September? And if so, there might be a sunny day or two, but not the whole week. The weather was unbelievable, sunny and warm all week long. It was like winning the lottery haha! Our apartment was located  within a…

    Chicago part II

    So here’s the thing about Chicago: Despite the fact that it is just a city, it is one of the most diverse cities in the US. We spent  whole week in Chicago and there were still things to do and spots to see. For me visiting a city usually means staying there around 2-5 days (depends), and at the end of my visit I feel like I’ve seen the majority of it’s attributes (of course you never see EVERYTHING, but I think you get the point). But we spent there 8 days straight and I swear – it still wasn’t enough (at least for me haha). My favourite part of Chicago was…
