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.

Football fever in Lyon

In July, when UEFA Euro 2016 in France was in full swing, my husband, who is a big football (soccer) fan, asked me if I want to attend one of the matches of the tournament. Of course, I would never say no to attending one of the biggest sports event of this summer so we started planning our trip.

At the time, there were still many matches at the tournament to be played. After considering our schedules and the convenience of the locations of the venues, we decided to attend the semi-final match held at the Stade des Lumières in Lyon. At the time, we didn’t know which two teams are going to play. With the progress of the tournament it became known our match will be the played between Wales and Portugal. Because my father-in-law is huge fan of Portugal’s star player Christiano Ronaldo, he expressed the interest in him and and mother-in-law joining us. Just the few days before the match, we somehow manage to buy the additional two tickets for them. We’ve booked them the plane tickets and voila, what was meant to be trip of two, became a family trip. Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Valldemossa

After amazing road trip around Slovenia, I’m now house-sitting my parent’s home, trying to refill my batteries. While I still have to sort out my thoughts and impressions of this great trip, my memories of the holidays in Mallorca in September 2012 are already all sorted out. I’ve visited this great Spanish island with my husband and we had amazing time there. This particular set of photos included in my Blast from the Past series are dedicated reviving my memories of the visit of the scenic village of Valldemossa. Hope you’ll enjoy them!

Summer evening in Luzern

Few days ago, when the sunny weather and summer temperatures finally reached Switzerland, I went for an evening cycle ride around Lucerne. Despite I already walked and cycled those areas many times before, I massively enjoyed the ride. It was great to rediscover the beauty of the place I now call home on such a lovely evening.

Hope you’ll enjoy the photos I took during my ride as much as I enjoyed making them.

Lake Lucerne or Vierwaldstättersee as it is called in German is the fourth largest lake in Switzerland.
