I have a confession to make. I have a bit of a writers block. I simply don’t find neither motivation for writing, nor the right words to describe the beauty of Mauritius. Because they say a picture is worth a thousand words, here are ten of my favourite photos I took while exploring this beautiful island in the middle of Indian Ocean. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
After 14 days in warm tropical climate of SE Asia my body struggle to adapt to cold winter temperatures here in Switzerland. I feel miserable. In such state, I’m trying to lift my spirits by editing videos and photos from my trips to the warm and sunny places. I would like to share with you one of them: a video from my trip to Seychelles in December 2016. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
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
The summer is in its full bloom here in Luzern. Despite I love this time of the year, I’m still dreaming of escaping to the seaside. Chilling by the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne) is great, but nothing beats the relaxed atmosphere of the holidays in the Mediterranean. Today’s post from the Blast from the Past series is therefore dedicated to one of my previous holidays in Greece – more precise holidays on the Island of Rhodes (Rhodos). This set of photos was taken in September 2004 in the lovely town Lindos.
On our third day in Iceland, my husband and I left Vík for Reykjavik. On our way there we stopped at the Dyrhólaey and Sólheimajökull glacier.
Dyrhólaey is a 120 metres high promontory located 10 km west of Vík and is of the most famous sights in Vík area. We followed the Road 281 which took us directly to the rocky plateau where we left our car and went out exploring. The views from there were breathtaking. We admired impressive views to Reynisfjara beach and Reynisdrangar, we’ve already admired on our first day in Iceland. This time we saw them from different direction. Continue reading
Our flight from Basel Airport to Iceland was scheduled at 7am, what means we had to leave our home in Lucerne in the middle of the night. We completed packing late in the evening and instead of going to bed, we had to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones to find out whether Jon Snow lives or not. Waking up after just few hours of sleep was definitely painful, but at least we got to know the Jon Snow’s faith. The expectations of another amazing trip kept us going.
We’ve managed to sleep through most of the flight. After we’ve landed at Keflavik airport I was surprisingly well rested. At the airport we’ve picked our rental car and hit the road towards Vík – the tiny town at the Iceland’s south coast we’ve chosen as our basis for the next two nights. We’d followed the Ring Road (Route 1) – a national road that runs around the island and connects most of the inhabited parts of the country. In the first hour of our drive, we’ve experienced everything what unpredictable Icelandic weather has to offer: sun, snow, heavy rain and even hail. Continue reading
At the beginning, I would like to thank all of you who assisted me with tips and suggestions for my trip to Iceland They were extremely helpful in deciding on what to do and see! Thank you!
Now, a little bit about my trip… My husband and I explored Iceland from 3rd to 7th May 2016. 5 days were not nearly enough to see everything what Iceland has to offer, but it was enough to get the sense how wild, pristine and stunningly beautiful this country is.
Today’s Blast from the Past post is taking you to Spain, more precise to the island of Mallorca where my husband and I spent some great time back in September 2012. This set of photos were made in a lovely coastal village of Deià – one of Mallorca’a gems we’ve had a pleasure to visit.
On this cold winter day, I’m dreaming of warmer summer days. This Blast from the Past post is therefore taking you back to the warm summer day of early September 2004 when I was enjoying sun at the beautiful Island of Rhodes in Greece. Here are some snaps I took while wandering around the island’s principal city the Rhodes town and its surrounding area:
Few Sundays ago my husband and I went on a walk along the banks of Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee). We walked all the way from Ufschötti beach to Lido beach at the other side of the bay. Despite the changing weather (one moment we had sun, the very next it snowed), it was a nice walk. Here are few impressions from it:
Today’s Blast from the Past post is taking you back to November 2009, when my boyfriend (now husband) and I travelled around Brazil. After São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Iguazu Falls, we’ve stopped at the capital of Santa Catarina state – at Florianópolis.
Floripa, as Florianópolis is sometime called, is famous for its beautiful scenery and long sandy beaches. We spent our time there meeting my boyfriend’s university classmates, exploring the area and relaxing at some of those beautiful beaches. Because my boyfriend loves football (soccer) and Brazil is the “the country of football” we also attended a football match. We saw Florianópolis’ team Avai playing against Santos FC from São Paulo.
Luzern is located by the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee). In the hot summer, as is this year’s, is the perfect spot to cool down. There are many public beaches all around the lake. Some are free of charge, while others charge entrance fee. Strandbad Tribschen is one of those who charge entrance fee. For a fee of 5 CHF (adult), you can enter the area and use the facilities: children’s pool, showers, dressing rooms, bar, football and volleyball fields, etc. For additional fee, you can borrow the sports equipment (e.g. sup, boat).
