Blast from the Past: Verona

Today’s Blast from the Past post is taking you to Verona in Northern Italy. I’ve visited this lovely town at the banks of river Adige in June 2010 in company of my husband. We strolled around the old town, which has been inscribed to the UNESCO Word Heritage List and enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere of the city. Here are some photos we took while exploring Verona. Hope you’ll enjoy them.

Cats of the world

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:

Blast from the Past: Bosa, Sardinia

While I’m packing and preparing for my trip to Seychelles, I’m remembering my past travels in yet another post from the Blast from the Past series. This time I would like to take you back to warmer days of June 2013 when I travelled to beautiful Sardinia in Italy. My husband and I spent our holidays touring the island, enjoying its beautiful beaches and exploring lovely towns and villages. This particular set of photos was taken in Bosa – one of most picturesque, but also most quiet and boring towns we’ve visited in Sardinia.

Top 10 UNESCO World Heritage Sites I’ve visited (up to date)

Every year UNESCO World Heritage Committee gather to discuss the world heritage. One of their tasks is to discuss cultural and natural sites of outstanding universal value submitted by the state parties. If those sites meet one or more of 10 criteria they can be included on the World Heritage List. This year UNESCO World Heritage met for its 39th session in Bonn, Germany. Out of the 36 sites that were examined this year, 24 sites from Mexico, Italy, Korea, Jordan, France, Denmark, Iran, Turkey, Uruguay, Mongolia, Israel, Norway, Saudi Arabia, USA, Singapore, Japan, Germany, UK, China and Jamaica were granted world heritage status, increasing the total number of world heritage sites to 1,031. Up to date, I had a chance to visit 41 of them. Here is my pick of 10 sites (in random order) I liked the best:   Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Rome

When arranging my photos from trip to Milan previous Wednesday, I’ve come across photos of my city break in Rome back in December 2010. They’ve evoked some great memories of me and my boyfriend exploring ancient Roman heritage and historical streets and squares of Eternal city. Here are some of the photographs I took during this trip:

The Duomo – Milan Cathedral

To me, Milan doesn’t have a charm many other Italian cities do. It is big, fast-paced, dull and overly urban. I do understand why it is sometimes left out of the mainstream tourist itineraries. However, there are some really cool attractions to visit there. My favourite of them is the Milan Cathedral (Duomo di Milano), a majestic Gothic cathedral, which I’ve visited again on Wednesday.
