2017 – A Year in Review

It seems to me every year goes by faster. It seems like I wrote recap for 2016 yesterday and not a year ago. Now is again end of the year and time to look back at all the amazing trips and travels of 2017:

  • I’ve visited 4 new countries: Cambodia, Serbia, Singapore & Thailand, stepping into 2018 with the total count of 30 visited countries
  • I swam in the Andaman sea for the first time

Perfect Start into the Ski Season at Melchsee Frutt

Winter came to Europe early this year. First snow covered the mountains and allowed many non-glacier ski resorts in the Alps to open earlier than usual. My husband and I took advantage of this situation and started our ski season on the first weekend in December. As this was also the weekend of my birthday, we celebrated it while swishing down the perfectly prepared slopes of my favoured ski resort Melchsee-Frutt in Central Switzerland.

Love/hate affair with Autumn

Autumn is not my favourite season. I always have a hard time to accept the fact that summer is over. Every day gets shorter and darker. The weather is just the worst: cold, with a lot of rain and fog. It takes ages to get dressed in all the layers of clothing needed to go outside. Sometimes, I would just want to go hibernate until spring.

But autumn is not all that awful. Autumn festivals, pumpkins, apple pies, and roasted chestnuts makes this season bearable. Colourful sunsets are gorgeous and changing of the leaves create beautiful scenery. Yes, I have to admit, autumn is the most colourful time of the year and as such can be truly glorious.

Counting the days till South-East Asia trip

Where?

Singapore, Cambodia (Siem Reap) & Thailand (Chiang Mai, Krabi)

WHEN?

From 29th October to 11th November 2017

WHY SOUTH-EAST ASIA?

South-East Asia was on our radar for a while, but somehow it was never the right moment to travel there… Not until this year, when I found really good deal for the direct flights to Singapore. After a quick research on Singapore, we didn’t hesitate much before we’ve booked our flights there. Reasons?

  • Interesting architecture
  • Melting pot of cultures
  • Colonial history
  • Cleanliness

After our research, we knew two weeks in Singapore would be too much for our travel style, so we’ve started looking into other places in South-East Asia which we could also visit. Singapore is a travel hub with affordable connections to numerous destinations. It was hard decision, but after taking into consideration different factors, (like  weather conditions, transport connections, things to see, etc.), we’ve decided to travel to Siem Reap in Cambodia and Chiang Mai and Krabi in Thailand. Why?

Siem Reap, Cambodia:

  • Siem Reap temples
  • Cambodian history & culture
  • Affordability

Chiang Mai & Krabi, Thailand:

  • Elephants
  • Stunning beaches
  • Thai food
  • Temples
  • Thai history and culture
  • Limestone rocks formations
  • Adventurous activities
  • Affordability

As usual before departing to my trip, I would like to ask you my dear readers for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Singapore, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai and Krabi? What attractions are must see? Which market must we visit? Where do they serve the best food? What local delicacy we must try? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!

Otočec Castle Wedding

I guess I’ve reached this age when most of my friends already decided or are deciding to tie the knot. In mid-August my husband and I attended wedding of our dear friends held at the gorgeous Otočec castle in Dolenjska Region (Lower Carniola Region) in the South-Eastern Slovenia.

Dolenjska is often overlooked, but is with its charming landscape of green meadows, vineyards, vast woods, green rivers and lovely towns with rich cultural heritage, well worth a visit. Continue reading
