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 …

Debela pec & Brda

by

This January has been very generous with sunny weather, the only thing we’re missing is snow – I’m crossing my fingers for some snowflakes by the end of the month. We visited the Julian Alps on Sunday, as we have yet to discover many of its beautiful corners. We usually prefer visiting Karawanks and K. S. Alps because driving to the starting points will take less time (read …

Perfect start of 2019!

by

It felt like a blink of an eye and 2018 was all over. It’s been one crazy busy year hence this hobby blog of mine didn’t get much attention. However, I’m happy to be writing again after a while, I enjoy it and I missed it. I can’t say how things will roll, but I want to keep it up and a New Year seems like a great starting point for a fresh new post …

Rocky Capo Testa.

by

While staying in Palau for our last few days in Sardinia, Capo Testa was definitely our favorite spot we visited around here. It’s the farthest point of Northeastern Sardinia and with clear weather, your sight can even reach Corsica. I read that it’s popular for its views and interesting hiking terrain – but you just don’t expect it to be so dramatic …

An ode to La Maddalena.

by

Pictures don’t even make this stunning islands justice, no camera can capture how raw and wild and beautiful it is over there. After spending a few days at La Maddalena archipelago, I am putting this place on my ideal holiday spot list. The coastline is rocky which I love, to the best bays you have to (of course, learned that already) hike and …

Shades of blue.

by

Cala, meaning small bay, is my new favorite word. And Sardinia seems to be full of them! But most spectacular ones you’ll find on the Eastern coast, in the Ogliastra area. Today we already hiked to another one of them – Cala Luna. Set against a backdrop of steep limestone cliffs and caves, it is pretty amazing as well. But this post is about Cala Goloritze …

Canyon Gorropu

by

This spectacular canyon wasn’t really in our plans – but after all the hiking on West, we quickly figured that Sardinia has more to offer than just turquoise clear blue seas. And as we are currently staying so close to the National Park of Orosei and Gennargentu, we simply had to see what it has to offer. We started our hike at Genna Silana pass …
