    FIRST TIME IN SWITZERLAND: LUZERN

    Our next destination on this road trip through Alps was Switzerland. Can you believe I have never been to Switzerland before? I didn’t have a strong desire to go, until my boyfriend suggested we extend our road trip and visit Luzern, a city in Switzerland he had visited before and wanted to take me there ever since. I was in, as you can imagine. Later I have found out he had some additional secret intentions he left out in the beginning. That secret intention was to visit Stans – Pilatus aircraft factory and airport on our way to Luzern. I am sure all plane lovers and pilots will immediately know…

    LAGO DI COMO: WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SEE

    To break off this suddenly “mountain-themed” blog of mine, I wanted to share some photos and tips on what to do and what to see if you find yourself visiting the cosmopolitan Lago di Como. As I have mentioned in my previous posts I wanted to visit Lago di Como for quite some time now, probably since I have seen the movie The other man (2008) and since George Clooney invited me to visit him at his villa haha. I mean how could I say no? Putting the joke aside, arriving to Lago di Como straight from the Dolomites, was a nice counterbalance. From the mountains and a cutest cabin to…

    TENERIFE BEACH LIFE

    Ever since we’ve first traveled to Tenerife in September 2014, we wanted to go back. There was something about that island dragging us to explore it again, so this May we finally got to do it. As soon as we found some reasonably priced tickets, we booked them. The price of the ticket and our accommodation was great, plus it was in the middle of May which meant we’ve avoided high tourist season – so it was a double “yes”! Flying over the island of Tenerife made me quite emotional, that is always the thing with me – returning back to a place I love, fills me up with a…

    HIKING IN VAL ROSANDRA

    Recently my mom celebrated her birthday and this year I wanted to surprise her with something special, something she would always remember. She wanted to go hiking to Val Rosandra for a few years now, but never managed to realise those plans. So I came up with the idea of surprising her and take her hiking. Val Rosandra is a valley, or rather gorge, just a few kilometres from Trieste. It is located near the border between Slovenia and Italy, but it’s still on Italian side. You can find various hiking trails and basically choose the length and difficulty of the trail. There are  also a lot of options to…

    USA DIARIES: EVENING HIKE ON A STONE MOUNTAIN

    I can’t believe it’s been almost half a year since my last trip to USA. This trip has been one of the most “last-minute” and “you only live once” decisions I’ve ever made. I travelled with my dad, but did some travelling alone as well, which made much bigger impact on my current perception of basically everything. It was scary and absolutely out of my comfort zone, but so rewarding at the same time. This particular evening when we hiked to a Stone Mountain, was by far one of the best moments on this trip. Stone mountain is a pretty high mountain in the vicinity of Atlanta (Georgia). When we were…
