September this year was very unlike the previous three or four Septembers, at least as far as weather is concerned. Summer weather ended by the end of the first week of September, there were some rainy days, which made me very happy (and please let there be some more!) and the temperatures were rather Octoberish.… Continue reading September highlights.
And just like that, summer has turned to autumn. I love that these seasonal changes never stop being exciting. We've been having autumnal weather since the beginning of September so I'm having no trouble believing that it's really autumn out there. The pictures from this post were taken on one of those last warm, sunny… Continue reading September days.
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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading 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… Continue reading Currently.
