This was supposed to be a 6 weeks to Christmas Eve post but I just couldn't make it yesterday. I spent the whole morning sitting at my computer and taking care of some Christmas shopping and my eyes were just way too tired afterwards. I should probably explain: I had a laser eye surgery last… Continue reading 6 weeks to Christmas.
Happy Sunday! Today it is 7 weeks to Christmas Eve. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that it is November and I can finally go all out with my Christmas preparations. For the past few years I have been slowly moving towards simple, Nordic style with my decorations. I love looking… Continue reading 7 weeks to Christmas Eve.
What better thing to post on Hallowe'en than photos from our recent trip to Pumpkin world. This pumpkin farm trip has become one of my favourite October traditions and last year I was rather upset that we hadn't made it. I planned better this year! Apart from it being a pumpkin paradise, I love that… Continue reading Pumpkin world 2017.
I had been looking forward to going to the Bristol Harbour very much. I love being near water and looking at ships. I must have got that from my gramps, who loved ships and I kept thinking how much he would've loved not only Brunel's SS Great Britain but actually every single boat in there.… Continue reading Bristol, part 2.
At the end of August I promised to catch up on all the trip photo posts that haven't been posted yet and I intend to keep that promise. It was actually really wonderful going back to all these photos and remembering various details of those days. That's why I love taking photos wherever I go:… Continue reading Bristol, part 1.
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.
