a crazy plant woman

by

I used to consider my mom a “crazy plant woman”, but since gardening became my hobby as well, I guess I joined the club! Collecting plants, taking care of them, propagating & growing new baby ones has been a hobby of mine for a few years now. But since we moved to a flat with a terrace, suddenly growing outdoor plants and vegetables became an option …

when time
stops …

by

Well, the times have not stopped, not really. Nature didn’t mind for the global crisis, there is already a beautiful spring outside. Besides a few days off, I have also been working throughout the whole pandemic period. However, the lockdown and staying-at-home-all-the-time still somehow felt like time stopped …

Hiking in Scottish Highlands.

by

My mind often slips back to our Scotland road trip. What a great experience that was. We loved all of the castles and their stories, whiskey tastings, driving the Nort Coast 500 Route but mostly, hiking in the Highlands. With the stubborn Scottish weather, we soon experienced it all, from returning to the car soaking wet to days of only clear blue skies …

Grintovec.

by

We did quite a few hikes in August – however some tan lines from the day we hiked to Grintovec can still be seen on my legs and arms today! Nontheless, this was one of my favourite hikes of this summer. Maybe because we didn’t really plan it and spontaneous decisions usually turn out great. After we hiked to Kokrsko sedlo from Suhadolnik …

Concert trips.

by

Oh we have so much to catch up on! A busy summer is over and after coming home from Scotland (stay tuned for the Scottish road-trip posts, I’ll get there), I want to recap it at least a little bit – starting with some more travels I did in July and August. With some planning ahead and booking tickets while there still were some, I got to visit a few very cool concerts …

Via Ferrata girls!

by

You will hear many members of our family say, that my cousine Lara is a mini-me. Both having long legs we look a bit alike, but we also both love our dogs, as well as adventures and share little fear of heights! So, Via Ferrata hike was on our bucket list for a while. As it was Lara’s first, we took it easy and visited Via Ferrata Hvadnik

The taste of summer.

by

I have many great plans for this summer, but this year I’m not going for a two-weeks seaside holidays anywhere. So a long weekend on Brac island was the closest I got and once again, I fell in love with the Dalmatian coast. We stayed in Bol, but also took a boat ride to Hvar and Vis, visited Modra Špilja, Biševo and got to swim in unbelievable spots around the Dalmatian islands …

The hiking excitement.

by

Afterwork hikes to Šmarna and Rašica in Ljubljana are great, but we have really missed a proper day hike in the mountains and were very excited when we finally parked our car in Tolminske Ravne. Path through the woods to the Planina Razor was quickly behind us, so we continued to the summit of Vogel mountain and hiked the ridge to Globoko Predel

So long, Riva.

by

I’ve learned that life has its own ways. Things will fall apart and fall together, only when the time is right. So it took me a bit longer to visit Riva again – but I always knew I’ll be back. This place is a dream, no pictures can do it justice. Besides being insanely photogenic, it’s also a perfect spot for an active holiday and we sure made the most out of our two-night stay …
