Stoos is a mountain village located at alpine plateau in the canton of Schwyz, 1300 meters above sea level. In winter it turns to ski resort, but in other seasons is a popular hiking destination. On one Sunday in October, my husband and went there to hike.
This is for everyone who had read my Living Nativity Scenes in Postojna Cave post and would like to see more of this event. Here is a video I’ve created from the snaps I took inside the cave. It’s far from perfect (I’m still learning how to take and make videos), but I think it will still show you another dimension of my visit of this lovely cave. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Every year for the almost three decades Postojna cave in Slovenia celebrates festive season with the special event – living nativity scenes. For five days in December, the magic underground world become a stage of Nativity story. This year I had a chance to marvel this unique Christmas event in person and it was unforgettable experience.

Another year has flew by and again it is time to look back and remember all the awesome things I’ve experienced in this past year. Here is a quick recap of my 2016:
- I’ve visited 2 new countries, Iceland and Seychelles, biding goodbye to 2016 with total count of 26 visited countries.
- I’ve visited Scotland for the first time.
- I’ve swam in Indian ocean for the first time
- The longest time I’ve been away from home in 2016 was 14-days trip to Seychelles in November and December
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.
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
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.
Hi, I’m Urška and I’m a crazy cat lady. I also love to travel. Wherever in the world I meet feline creature I try to befriend it or at least take a picture of it. No wonder there are plenty of cat photos in my photo library. Here below are some of those pictures of the cuties I’ve met and photographed on my travels:
On a last weekend of October, my husband and I spontaneously decided to visit Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein. We didn’t do any planning in advance, we just went there and explore the city without any prior knowledge about it.
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.
