Faaker See – spomini /memories

Lansko leto sva se za vikend oddih odpravila na bližnje avstrijsko jezerce – Faaker see. Ker nisem imela časa za objavo na blogu, je sedaj čas le za obujanje spominov preko fotografij. Ne bom pozabila čudovitih razgledov, poti bosonožcev, zagrajenih privat plaž (kar nam, Slovencem, ni najbolj poznano :)), lepih gozdov in pomankanja časa, da bi oblezla vse okoliške ferate in hribe. Foto utrinki spodaj. Super vikend družinski izlet! Tudi z otroki se da videti marsikaj, od gore Opic (Affenberg) do poti bosonožcev, ki jo vodi pravljica o zmaju ipd.

Last year we went on a weekend trip in Austria. Their Faaker See is near and very beautiful. We didn’t have time to wright a blog so this is just some memories in photos. I won’t forget breathtaking views, The barefoot road in forest, private beaches with no access for tourists, nice forests and the lack of time to visit and climbing all the mountains around the lake. You can see few photos bellow – it can be a great family getaway, there is plenty things to do with children – from Monkey mountain (affenberg) to barefoot road in the forest (the red line of the road is a fairy tale about a dragon) etc. Enjoy!😉

Weekend getaway – Pula, Fažana (Croatia)

Weekend getaways are my favorite. People are complaining about not going anywhere but when the weekend comes they lay in front of tv – If we are free, we are definitely not at home. Exploring new things is amazing and it broadens your mind, challenge your brain and soul in every way and … It makes you feel alive, it carries a million questions about life, it learns you tons of stuff so … Our last getaway was Fažana with our beloved friends. The weather weren’t so good but we still had great time.

Here are some photos of a cute little town beach – Fažana.

And more popular and known – Pula. We went there to see the Roman amphitheater. You can find interesting details of Pula history HERE.  🙂

Malta in May – day 7 (Ghajn Tuffieha bay)

Last day – time for some rest after all the hikes and wandering around. First, we visited the Golden bay.

Than we went for a short walk to Ghajn Tuffieha bay – we spent the time swimming, playing cards & reading a good book. 🙂 In the evening we went to say good-bye to our Malta scout friend – Gail. — Thank you so much for everything… I think you can never feel the culture if you don’t talk and bond to a native. 🙂

Malta in May – day 1 (Buggiba, national aquarium)

Hey guys, it’s been a while since a posted and that’s because we were exploring Malta for the last seven days. Since there are so much photos and things that happened, I decided to write one article for each day.   We also wrote a diary, so here are our experience and impressions. 🙂

1. TRAVELING

We traveled to Malta with Ryan air from Treviso (Italy) – cheap flights, on time, nothing special. The whole surprise started when we landed on Malta and meet our taxi driver. We asked him how far is the hotel and he said: “Many, many, many minutes.” And he was driving like crazy – Maltese people are driving on the left side of the road while we drive on the right. We use horns when trying to remind some driver that he made a mistake or whatever – they are using horns at every curve so they let everyone know that they are here and that they are not slowing down. 😀 It was really adventures ride, we almost caused an accident a few times. my boyfriend even threw up when we came to the hotel. 😀 But anyway, we found it interesting how different the culture can be, even we live quite close.

The same day we purchased the bus ticket “Tallinia card; explore unlimited travel”  This is the card for 21 € per person but you can drive as much as you want for 7 days. If you have the plan to see a lot of things and drive a lot with the buses, this is really cheap. When we were calculating how much would we pay for each ride, we came to conclusion that we would pay 21 € in just 2 and a half days for all the rides we had. So it is really the cheapest option for travelling Malta. 🙂

Thoughts:  Crazy drivers, bad traffic, long traveling time – we were so happy that we didn’t have the money to rent a car. 😀

2. Buggiba

We stayed in a cheap hotel in Buggiba. People were very friendly, but they don’t have the working rhythm that we have in Slovenia. They are slow, with the smile on their faces, friendly … and they do not panic or worry too much. 🙂 We could learn something from them. We went for a walk in the town – nice, calm, with a lot of mini markets, restaurants, and other amazing places. It is especially beautiful in night-time. It was also calm but they say it is very touristic and loud in the summer.

Thoughts: Their 21 degrees are so much warmer than ours! It’s not cold even at night-time, the weather is amazing! Feels just like summer. But taped water isn’t very good – they produce it from the sea water so it has a special taste.

3. Malta national aquarium

On first day we didn’t have the time to explore much so we just headed to aquarium in Buggiba – aquarium is small (When you compare it to the Genova or Barcelona aquarium) but it is very beautiful. The theme of an aquarium is Malta – its special boats Luzu’s, their sunken  ships and monuments … The entrance is 12 € per person but it is worth it.

Thoughts: We first saw The leopard shark and the zebra shark. Great! 🙂

That was day one, 6 days to go, thank you for reading! 😉

 

 

Verona – Florence – Pisa – Cinque Terre (Italy)

Today we found photos from last year trip to Florence. And off-course, we couldn’t stay in the same place for 5 days if so many beautiful things were out there to see, so close and so amazing. We walked for hours, exploring, searching, having fun. We slept later, when we got home. 😛

1. First stop: Verona

Amazing city with so much history! Here are some photos of Colosseum Verona, great Roman architecture. I sat there thinking about all the gladiators who died there, all the slaves who were sitting at the back, all the “big fishes” in front …

Colloseum Verona

Juliet’s house

They say, Verona is one of the most romantic cities in Italy, because of Juliet .. And her Romeo. 🙂 A lot of couples locked their lock of love there. 🙂

2. Florence

There were our hotel – usually we go to camps and hostels, but I got this trip as a birthday present – so we were there in a luxury. 🙂

Ponte Vecchio

This is an amazing bridge, with really wonderful jewelry workshops, but it is expensive. And the ice cream? The best on the world! But a piece of advice – don’t buy it ON Ponte Vecchio – it is 8 € one, so we gave 16 € for two ice creams. But it was worth it. 😉

Palazzo Vecchio

… with the death mask of Dante Alighieri. 🙂 And everything else of course! We met a lady from Boston and she was really big fan of Dan Brown’s inferno book, so she was in heaven when she saw the mask. I must admit, it was amazing.

Pisa

Torre di Pisa, leaning tower of Pisa – one of the seven world wonders. 🙂

Cinque terre – best for last

I loved those small cities, i loved the views, the beaches the paths … I want to g back sometime to hike all those paths between – we traveled by train because we didn’t have enough time for hiking.

So nice to look back on those memories. 🙂 I am really greatful to be there, feel a bit of Italian culture and met a great woman from Boston who told us about livin in America. 🙂
