An unexpected visit to Bratislava Castle.
Welcome back to the new episode of my series, BratisLove, where we visit beautiful -small and big- spots of Bratislava. In this episode, I will tell you about our visit to one of the most famous spots of the town, which is its Castle.
Prepare a hot cup of coffee (or tea), because I have a story to tell!

Are you ready for a magical adventure?
Today, I have an exciting new post for all of you who live around Bratislava! And for the rest of you, this can serve as an inspiration to do something similar in your area. 😉
So today, I will tell you about our latest trekking adventure. This time, we went to Železná studnička, an amazingly beautiful part of the Bratislava Forest Park. Yes, you might remember the Forest Park from my previous post
. Actually, as you will follow our steps, wandering around, breathing fresh air and enjoying Nature, you will then take a hidden chairlift and magically transfer…. to the spot we’ve been on my previous post! (Ok: the chairlift is not hidden at all. And the transfer is not magical. But don’t spoil it for me with your realism, please.)

Welcome to part 2, of my Special Extra on Prague!
In part 1, I gave some general information about the city. In this part, I will give some more specific suggestions about what to do, what to eat and what to drink while you are there. Again, this is not a tourist guide -just my suggestions, based on what we did during this trip to Prague. 🙂
Let us start!

Holidays. What a beautiful, beautiful word.
For these inter-semestral holidays, we chose Prague.
The capital city of the Czech Republic. A beautiful city with a strong character, that combines the old with the new. Magnificent combination of architectural styles: Gothic, Neo-Gothic, Neo-Classical, Art Nouveau… Friendly people. Mouth watering food. Excellent beer. Heavenly music. A city of contrasts, which all blend together to create a burst of colours, light and magic!
With hundreds of photos taken, and my mind filled with experiences, I have decided to make a Special Extra on Prague.

It’s been almost a month since Christmas 2016, and I honestly cannot understand how time flies by so fast. We think we can pin time down and control it, by filling out to-do lists and every day schedules, which we anxiously try to keep up with -but, truth is, the more we try to grab it, the easier it slips away.
In this entry, I want to share with you some photos from the Christmas period which just passed. Some of them are taken by my good friend, Antigoni.
I hope you enjoy them and travel with me, from North Europe to South -and back, again! : )

Oh my. It’s been a month since I last posted here. Life can get too busy, sometimes.
But! Last Saturday, we decided to take a day off and spend some quality time, doing something different. The next 3 weeks before Christmas will be tough in the Uni, so it was a good chance to have a small getaway and clear our minds from all the everyday stress.
While I was checking some webpages a few days ago, I discovered a perfect little Christmas market, in Austria, just next to the border of Slovakia. Austria is famous for its Christmas markets, which are SO many, I can’t even begin. So, when I first saw this particular market, I knew we shouldn’t miss the chance of visiting it.

Sorry I haven’t posted here in a while -let’s say that I am having a break, looking for inspiration. However, we went on a short trekking adventure in the area of Koliba, and I just had to write something about that!

Day trip in Brno!
This week we visited the beautiful city of Brno, which is the second largest city of the Czech Republic and the largest of the historic region of Moravia. Just one day is not enough to explore everything, of course, but it was definitely enough for us to get a good taste of the city’s life and fulfil our 2 basic goals: visit the Mendel’s museum and the Church of St. James, with its recently found ossuary.

Been there. Done that.
This week we finally did it! I have been wanting to go to an Austrian village by bicycle since two or even three years ago. I had already got a bicycle but I never really used it for a long distance. But the time finally arrived, for my bicycle to take me to a place far away!
Ok. Not that far away (duh), but still, away from the city.
