Even though autumn doesn’t officially start for another 3 weeks, there’s always been a definite feeling of a summer’s end at the end of August. So before summer is out for good, I thought I’d make a quick post with some of my snaps from Turkey. This wasn’t out first holiday in that place but … More A postcard from Belek, Turkey.
I’m back from my summer holidays. I took a week off in July and went to Bratislava, Slovakia and I spent the first two weeks of August relaxing by the sea in Belek, Turkey. It’d be tempting to say that the success of a good holiday lies mostly in the location because it’s pretty easy … More High summer.
I managed to sprain my foot the Saturday before last and since I can’t skate just yet, I thought I’d use the extra time to put together a minipost about the ice cream shops we went to in Bratislava. I don’t usually eat ice cream so often because all the ice cream I can get … More The best ice cream in Bratislava.
You know how sometimes the least expected things blow your mind? Well, this was my holiday in Bratislava last week. It’s not far from home (merely 3 hours by car), it’s not one of those super fancy destinations the Internet is buzzing with but I found there exactly what I wanted and needed: an amazing … More A week in Bratislava.
Last Wednesday was the first day of summer. My first student of the day cancelled her lesson so I suddenly had some 90 odd minutes off in the morning. I never have time off in the morning, so I was understandably excited about it. And since it was supposed to be another hot and sunny … More Midsummer.
Later than in the past few years, I think, but we finally made it to the part of the year when we can eat outside. Here’s wishing that it’ll stay this way for at least another 4 months. It’s been very long since I could last eat a meal on my balcony, which I think … More First al fresco breakfast of the year.
Last week was all about painting the downstairs of our house and it was one of the most demanding and challenging weeks ever. However, we made it and now we’re almost done! Let’s have a look at how it all went, then, shall we? To take a breather, we did a little shopping on Saturday … More Nearly done.
Lilacs are finally in season and I can’t get enough of them. We’ve started painting our house. The whole thing. Right now there’s a horrible mess in my bedroom and I can’t wait for when I finish work at 7.30 pm so I can clean the floors and start putting things back in. I intend … More Currently.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I was in Switzerland two weeks ago. The number one reason for this trip was the third edition of Ice Legends (because I loved last year’s too much to pass up the opportunity to see the next one). When it was postponed to 2018 … More Switzerland 2017.
I couldn’t have chosen a more dreary day to take photos but I saw the first blooming tree yesterday and I just couldn’t wait for the sun to come out. There’s not much sunshine forecast for the next few days and I didn’t want to risk it. I just love standing underneath those trees and … More Bloomin’ marvellous.
