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 and had our coffee …

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 …

Pasta for a
b-day cake!

by

I honestly wouldn’t mind! The amount of carbs I’ve had on our trip to Rome was pretty epic. I mean, when in Italy, any diet should really go out of the window. All that pasta, pizza, and ice cream are far too good not to enjoy it – however, on my birthday, I was surprised with a cake as well. I knew I wanted to make a leap into a new decade somewhere abroad traveling …

Windy.

by

Hills around our Vipava Valley may not be as high as the Alps or the Karawanks, but they continue to impress me every time I hike up there. On a bright sunny day, the views over the Valley are beautiful and Saturday afternoon looked just like that – it was windy and the sky was so clear. We hiked to Kucelj via Srednječavenska path …

Stop and stare.

by

About a week ago, skies finally blessed us with first snow this season. Growing up in Vipava Valley, in winters we could only observe snowy hills around the Valley and bagged parents to take us sledding “up there” after school. I guess that’s why I still long for snow so much and am looking forward to it every year. So when I was visiting my hometown last weekend …
