In today’s Blast from the Past post I’m taking you to Trieste, a city in northeastern Italy by the Adriatic sea. Because it is very close to the Slovenian border, it was an ideal place to visit on a day trip back in autumn of 2008 when I still lived in Slovenia. Here are some photographs I took on this trip. I hope you’ll enjoy them!

The cycling route number 9 is a 497 km long route between Montreux and Rorschah. Because it passes many beautiful Swiss lakes, including Lac Léman (Lake Geneva), Bodensee, and Lake Lucerne (Vierwalstättersee), it is also known as “the Lakes route”. Continue reading
Klewenalp-Stockhütte is small ski resort in Central Switzerland I have visited in mid-March with my husband. This ski resort consist of two areas: Klewenalp, which is accessible by aerial gondola from the village of Beckenried and Stockhütte , which is accessible by cable car from the village of Emmeten.
A week and half ago, my husband and I finally started ski season and went skiing to one of our favourite places ski, to Grindelwald in Berner Oberland. Some of my followers are probably aware I love this ski resort. Ski slopes there are great, the landscape is stunningly beautiful, the infrastructure is good and it is close enough to Luzern for a day ski trip.
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.
On a warm sunny August Sunday my husband and I went exploring the jewels of one of the most beautiful regions of Switzerland – Berner Oberland. Our destination was beautiful Oeschinen Lake (Oeschinensee), a stunningly beautiful alpine lake located in the mountains above the village Kandersteg in Oeschinen Valley.
