Nature and sculptures. Playing with textures, framing the elements of nature in a photograph and creating a souvenir. Feeling at peace and at home near water. Had all these thoughts going through my Stockholm pictures from the Artipelag.Continue reading “The Stockholm Archipelago”
Here we go again. This May, I spend a few days in Sweden and have been on a diet with cardamon buns and good coffee, with ABBA songs in my head. Honey honey! A friend reunion, museum visits, time in nature, plus a ferry between the 14 islands that make up the city of Stockholm.Continue reading “Stockholm reunion ~ Art & Fika”
Voilà. I went last time to Strasbourg in a warm weekend in February that made me think Spring is on its way. I remember walking on a street called Rue de Printemps (Spring) near the European Parliament. There is something romantic walking in any French city street, but especially one with the name of a season.Continue reading “Bonsoir Printemps, Strasbourg”
While sitting in the train from Berlin to Potsdam, I started writing about my last trip to Düsseldorf. Even though “dorf” means village in German, Düsseldorf is such an interesting dinamic city today. I visited it in for a reunion in summer and by myself in autumn. And two time in winter, for the Christmas market, as we have to admit the holidays are the only best part during the cold months.Continue reading “4 things to do in Düsseldorf”
In a rainy October weekend, I attended the Lithuanian Film festival in Berlin, while mixing it with memories from a trip in the heart of Vilnius years ago. I started thinking of special friendships and remembered the Constitution of the “Republic” of Užupis, that claims “everyone has the right to make mistakes”.Continue reading “Vilnius goes Berlin”
Since I visited Prague twice, once in winter weather, and in summer, I feel I saw and photographed two different contrasting cities, both beautiful. I explored so far only districts Praha 1 and Praha 2. May sounds as Hunger games, but in fact Prague is more bohemian than entertaining, more Kafka than Hollywood.Continue reading “Photo journal from Prague”
No place like home, except the seaside. Si. Difficult to say what I liked more in Barcelona – sangria on our first night, the flavors of paella, Boqueria market, the Mediterranean, the concert at Palau Sant Jordi, strong coffee on Passeig de Gracia while admiring the Gaudí architecture and being called “señiorita”.Continue reading “Spain ~ Gaudí ~ Barcelona”
Even though Verona is known for tragical Romeo & Juliet of Shakespeare, what I remember from that holiday are pumpkin ravioli, pecorino cheese, tiramisu, lake Garda, stunning architecture and opera. Yes, Italian opera! Is so easy to keep finding reasons to return to Italy, right?!Continue reading “Memories – “Aida” in Verona”
This week of 4-10 November 2019 is a very special one in the German capital because it celebrated the 30th anniversary of the fall of Berlin Wall with “storytelling” events and art. This autumn, I am still processing this week and the 6 months since I live here.Continue reading “A world without walls”
Applying and receiving an Erasmus scholarship in Denmark at 19 years old I actually received wings. 10 years feels like a lifetime and is beautiful to look back where it all started.Continue reading “Erasmus revisited. Copenhagen”
In just a few intense days, we hiked through a protected national park, swam among salty rocks and dived inside a cave, we had liquor and truffles tasting experiences. We ate and had Istrian wine again and again.Continue reading “Wonderful Istria”
Many books or travel guides were already written about Paris and many movies were filmed here. Is hard to add some new or original relevant content, so I will just write my raw thoughts of the city about the best 7 decisions from 7 trips I took while in Paris and the ultimate cliché, since I can’t resist those.
When the girls and I decided to visit Puglia, we knew the trip would revolve around food – pretty much the best part of any Italian journey! Stay tuned for “Pugliese cuisine” tips, what to see and where to eat.
Rome, Italy, 16th of May, 2015
~ This first chapter is dedicated to my beautiful friend Anna and was written as a present for her wedding ~
I had a wonderful reunion in Rome with two amazing friends – Anna and Tihana.
