This was the second June weekend and it was one of the best ones so far this year. Paya came to stay for the weekend and on Saturday, we went to the annual Rosé wine festival. First I took her to the Basilica herb garden because she hadn't been there before and it's definitely worth… Continue reading Rosé wine festival.
Summer is well underway now but spring was something different this year, at least from the point of view of someone who really likes to watch the world around change with seasons. Spring came super early this year, everything bloomed and turned green about 3 weeks earlier than usual. I had been sick of the… Continue reading Spring 2018.
My last post from my 2017 trip to Bratislava will take you all over the city: on our last day there, we went to see the Blue Church again and then we roamed the streets, quite aimlessly, enjoying the vibe of the place. Hopefully some of it gets through to you via the photos. https://flic.kr/p/27SbaW5… Continue reading Bratislava 2017, part 5.
This post is about some more places in Bratislava which I would absolutely recommend seeing. First off, there's the riverbank. I always love riverbanks, especially when there are trees. Perfect if you fancy a wee constitutional. https://flic.kr/p/26cPdHS https://flic.kr/p/27y7to5 https://flic.kr/p/25TxF4s https://flic.kr/p/25TzHBE Next up there is Fresh Market, where you can get all the seasonal Slovak produce,… Continue reading Bratislava 2017, part 4.
I think it's time we talked about the UFO tower. Yeah, you heard right. Bratislava has got its own UFO. I have to admit I felt a strong urge to re-watch Roswell every single time I laid my eyes on it, which was quite often because you really can see it from nearly everywhere in… Continue reading Bratislava 2017, part 3.
As you may have noticed in the previous Bratislava post, this city is full of absolutely stunning houses. Our hotel was in a district that was just breathtaking. https://flic.kr/p/28C5tnH https://flic.kr/p/28xzQBQ This was a tiny greengrocer's! https://flic.kr/p/Lud2VN https://flic.kr/p/28C5ctD https://flic.kr/p/28C5eCi https://flic.kr/p/Lud8bC https://flic.kr/p/28C5hUP I can't resist a dog.

If you're following me on Instagram, you will probably have noticed that I'm currently in Bratislava. When I was there on holidays last year, I was utterly charmed. The city was beautiful, the weather was perfect, the people were incredibly nice and helpful and the food was just excellent. It's hardly a surprise then that… Continue reading Bratislava 2017, part 1.
The last two Saturdays of May were among the most special ones this year so far. On the 19th, I met up with Paya in SKØG Urban Hub and we spent an amazing afternoon there. https://flic.kr/p/27QVPuz https://flic.kr/p/27QVQ3P https://flic.kr/p/26the6X https://flic.kr/p/26K6M3C We had saffron gin & tonic for the first time ever and we were really impressed.… Continue reading Two Saturdays in Brno.
May was a fantastic month. So much, in fact, that I had to split it into several posts. Because of this, I was left mostly with photos of Eda and food. In other words, a perfect post. When it came to food, May was a splendid month. The fresh produce started to come in and… Continue reading May highlights.
This is how April started. By the end of it, winter was all gone and spring was underway. My favourite Saturday now goes like this: get up at 6, go to Brno, go to my skating course, meet up with Paja. What could be better than that, really? https://flic.kr/p/H6tjNM https://flic.kr/p/26KmxR4 https://flic.kr/p/23ZHbhE https://flic.kr/p/26FBiSC https://flic.kr/p/23ZHd33 https://flic.kr/p/23ZHd7G https://flic.kr/p/23ZH5Kh… Continue reading April highlights.
