Sunny September
in Dolomites.

by

September of ’21 is coming to an end but whoa, it has been special! Definitely my favourite month this year, due to so many reasons, but one of them must be the weather. After a very special Saturday, we spent an amazing week in Dolomites and I still cannot believe what a sunny and warm weather we were blessed with – considering awful rainy forecast …

Views over
Lago di Como.

by

As explained in my previous post, as soon as we got close to the shores of the Lago di Como, a hike to any of the mountains around the lake was added to our “must-do” list. The landscape was amazing from the lake already, but nothing beats the views from the top. And it wouldn’t really matter which summit you’d go for, I am sure the views are amazing from all around the lake …

Italian summer.

by

I love Italy. It’s simple as that! The landscapes and the cities, the language and the culture, the food and the wine, the Dolce far niente lifestyle – I love it all. Bonus points, Italians love dogs. So with a furry companion, planing a trip to Italy is easy. They’re allowed to most places and you won’t have a problem finding a place to stay as in most, pets are very welcomed. For our other half of the summer …

Sunrise at Osoršćica.

by

One cannot miss Osoršćica, a 20 km long ridge along Losinj island. It’s right there in front of you, the moment you cross the bridge from Cres to Losinj, and it follows you all the way from Osor to Ćunski. You can tell the views from Televrina, the summit at 588 m of altitude, will be worth the hike. The hiking path is very nice, mostly in shadow …

Discovering Losinj.

by

Due to so many plans we have for this summer (and fall in particular), we’ve only managed to squeeze in a week of seaside holidays this June. We figured it doesn’t make sense to travel south to Dalmatia as per usual and decided to visit Kvarner’s islands instead, not really expecting much. We packed our camping gear and headed via Cres and Losinj …

Smells like spring.

by

It seems as we’ve skipped a season here on BWT blog! After a great start of a hiking autumn last year, lockdown vol. II hit hard. And although it felt dull at times, we actually had a nice winter and a very lovely Christmas that still keeps my heart warm. But to sum it up, besides the pile of books I’ve read and the loaves of sourdough I’ve baked, there’s little to show …

Landcapes of
Kriški Podi.

by

Our mountain peaks might already be all white, but I’m still daydreaming of the warm autumnal weather we had in September. We spent one of the weekends in Bovec, hiking to Krnsko jezero on a Saturday and to Kriška jezera on a Sunday. The whole weekend was a blast, but above all I loved the path to Pogačnikov Dom na Kriških podih

Bivouac under
Skuta mountain.

by

Hiking to the bivouac shelter under Skuta mountain was on my bucket list for years now. In 2015, the old bivouac was replaced with the new, may I say a very good looking one – and all of a sudden, the steep hike via “Žmavcarji” didn’t seem all that bad. Well, the hike still is steep, unmarked and takes some time, but …

Summer hiking.

by

Due to the lockdown, all our spring hiking plans went out the window. Then June came and things started to fall back on its tracks, but we somehow had no time for hiking. It wasn’t until our summer holidays were over, that I found myself completely out of shape – but so eager to visit mountains again …

Hvar in June.

by

We started our summer holidays early again this year. We can’t help it, we love the peaceful and quiet June summertime. The sea still might be a little cold, but the heatwave is never too bad, days are the longest and the pre-season holidays are always less crowded. But this year, with lockdowns still active, it felt like we had the island for ourselves. We stayed in …
