Trip to Seychelles: Overview

Do you know that feeling when you just got back home from the amazing trip and you wish to book another ticket and return back to where just came from. Well, I do. My birthday trip to Seychelles was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I want to book another ticket and go straight away.

Anse Source D’Argent

14 days in Seychelles were enough to see and experience many things this tropical paradise has to offer: we swam and snorkelled at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, we saw countless number of colourful fishes, we swam with the turtles, we hiked, we cycled, we pet giant tortoises, we’ve visited the prehistoric tropical forrest, etc. Continue reading

Blast from the Past: London II.

I love London and for that reason I think it deserves to be featured in my Blast from the Past series for the second time. This particular set of photos was made in November 2014, when I visited London with my husband and friend in order to attend the UEFA Qualifier football match between England and Slovenia. We didn’t just support Slovenian team at the Wembley, but we’d also (re)explored this awesome town.

Japan. Day 11: Himeji castle & Osaka

Eleventh day of our trip to Japan in spring 2015, my husband and I went to a visit Himeji and Osaka. Early in the morning we left our hotel in Kyoto and boarded the fast shikansen train to Himeji.

The reason we traveled to Himeji was the castle Himeji-jo – one of twelve original Japanese castles that hasn’t been damaged or destroyed in the wars or in natural disasters. It is actually pretty remarkable that the castle is still standing. During World War II the Himeji town was completely destroyed by the allies, but the castle remained intact. Luckily the bomb that landed on the roof failed to detonate. As it is still in its original shape and because is considered to be the finest example of the classic Japanese feudal period architecture it has been inscribed to UNESCO World Heritage list.
