    DIARIES: WELCOME TO WILD AZORES

    We were ready for another adventure, this time – for the wild Azores. The day we came there scored high in my ” best travel days”. I am trying to find an appropriate word to describe that day, and the word that keeps popping in my brain is “smooth“, so we’ll have to go with that. A flight was a special experience itself. I am a person who still tries to find some romance in flying and all that airport jungle, but for the last couple of years this is really tough. I hate how mass tourism made whole flying experience like a bus ride, just with a lot more…

    MADEIRA: VISITING BOTANICAL GARDENS

    In my previous post I’ve promised my next one will be about our hike to the highest peak of Madeira, but it’s been a busy week so I am coming to you with a bit less time consuming post. I want to have more time for the post about the hike, I don’t want it to be rushed. To continue the “Madeira series”, one day we’ve visited botanical gardens situated in Funchal, the capital of Madeira. The weather was cloudy, which was perfect for a bit more laid back day. If you follow my blog for some time you might know, regarding to a place we are visiting, we always…

    MADEIRA: 25 FONTES WATERFALL

    Madeira is known by numerous beautiful waterfalls, so in case you ever find yourself visiting the island, seeing at least one waterfall is a must! Tripadvisor is a good place to search info about different waterfall hikes and tours. You will find everything there, from hike duration , to difficulty, options for guided tours etc., so in case you don’t know which waterfall to choose, Tripadvisor is the answer. Visiting the “25 Fontes Waterfall” is one of the best memories I have from Madeira. It’s also one of the most known waterfalls in Madeira, therefore it can get really crowded there as well. Taking this into consideration, we intentionally chose…

    USA DIARIES: Chicago

    First I needed a few days to process all of the info from our trip, all memories and feelings and sort them into the right place in my head and heart. Now that I know at least where I’ve been (haha) and what I’ve seen in one month of travelling, I can finally write about it. Well, we’ll see about that. Chicago was always special to me and I’ve been dying to go there for a long time. I don’t really know how to put this, but let’s say I used to know a (special) person who lived there. That was years ago. Ever since, it’s always been everything about Chicago. This might…

    Tourists in our hometown

    We had no plans for this past sunday so we decided to go somewhere and spend a nice sunday tohether. None of us felt like driving somewhere too far and the weather wasn’t very promising either. So we ended up staying in Ljubljana, pretending we are here on a vacation. We left our apartment and walked all the way to park Tivoli, where we grabbed a coffee at the Café situated in the middle of the park. Despite the fact that we don’t go there very often, the surrounding and the atmosphere there are so different it wasn’t hard to pretend we’re somewhere on vacation. While we drank our coffee the sun came…
