Blast from the Past: London

Today’s Blast from the Past post is taking you to one of my favourite cities – to London. I’ve spent a year there studying towards my masters degree. That year was definitely one of the best years in my life. Living in city that has to offer so much and exploring it with a group of amazing friends was an experience I will never forget.

This particular set of photos was made in september 2013, after I already left London, but I returned for a few days to attend my graduation ceremony. This time showed this fabulous city to some of my favourite people: my family and boyfriend. We wandered around town and exploring all major sights:

Bern on a Sunny Summer Day

Today, I went to Bern, de facto capital of Switzerland, where I had few errands to run. As my visit wasn’t for pleasure, I didn’t have much time to do sightseeing. Though, I still manage to enjoy walking the picturesque streets and stop at one of the parks where I’ve enjoyed the clear views towards the Swiss Alps. Here are some photos capturing this beautiful summer day:

Day 6: From Hakone to Hiroshima

As you might read one of my previous posts, my boyfriend and I spent a night at the Japanese inn in Hakone region. After the morning soak in the onsen, we’ve attended the Japanese breakfast. They served us fish, egg boiled in onsen, rice, miso soup and a bunch of different vegetable in tiny bowls. We tried the dishes, but we didn’t ate much. For our stomachs adapted to western diet was this Japanese breakfast just too heavy .

At shikansen to Hiroshima

We returned to our room, packed our things and checked out. The kind receptionist ordered us a lift to the train station and in half an hour, we were sitting on the train to Odawara. There we caught the shikansen to Hiroshima. The time at this super-fast train flew by and soon we arrived to our destination. Upon arrival, we stopped at the tourist office and grab some maps. Kind lady at the information desk who spoke perfect English also explained us hot to get to our hotel. With her instructions and a map, we found it without any problems. This time, the we didn’t have to wait for our room, it was already prepared for us. We left our luggage there and went out exploring. Continue reading
