Three’s a charm!

by

When going home to our Vipava Valley for a weekend escape, our tawny tail gets to enjoy the company of his two little friends, Mendi and Mars! You’ve met Mendi before, my mom’s little black cocker spaniel is for sure Oto’s best friend. Mars however, joined the team only recently, being adopted from the shelter by my younger cousin Lara …

Why do we do it?

by

When the alarm goes off at 7am, of course I’m not excited to wake up. What follows is a lot of yawning, eating breakfast half asleep, gathering all the equipment, googling directions to our starting point – and before I know it, we’re already hiking our way up. It gets easier when your heart is starting to pump and your body warms up …

Love for plants.

by

It’s sort of a granny hobby, I know, but I can’t help myself – I love my plants! I’ve been collecting plants for years and the number of them in our flat is constantly growing – even more so since I started growing them from cuttings and seeds. I would hardly squeeze them all in one photo. There are pots with green beauties sitting everywhere …

Hiking in first snow.

by

Snow is here and winter fun can begin! The plan for the weekend was to hike to Raduha and from our starting point Kosmaceve Rastke to the Lodge Koca na Loki everything went great. We were hiking above the clouds, enjoying sun and snow and having a lot of fun. After a quick coffee, without thinking much, we went ahead …

Good morning views.

by

I’m pretty sure Smarna Gora and Grmada count more as Ljubljana spots over a Hiking! destination. Don’t take me wrong though, your heart will be pumping if taking steeper paths to the top, but don’t worry – it’s quick and fun. Most importantly, both peaks of the hill offer such lovely views all around and over Ljubljana …

Feeling small.

by

We knew we wanted to explore some more of the amazing Karawanks mountain range last time we were around here. The view over the part of the range with summits Gubno and Kepa impressed us enough to return in two weeks time already! Both being 2.000 + m alt summits one next to another on the chain, we decided for Gubno …

My kind of Saturday.

by

Take us to mountains – and you’ll end up with one happy girl and one happy vizsla. 6 hours, 15 km and 1.100 m of altitude on a sunny Saturday sound perfect to me. It’s the best way to take all of your worries out of the head and be present in the moment. Good company, the views, and tasty food are just a plus …

Hiking again!

by

Of course we missed hiking. In rainy September weekends we were stuck inside, so we are very excited for this sunny and warm fall weather and are planning to hike as much as we’ll be able to. For a start, we joined our friend last Sunday and headed off north to visit the Karawanks again. We love the Karawanks, the view over Triglav and Julian Alps is simply the best …

Sunny October.

by

From rainy September to sunny October, doesn’t it sometimes feel like time’s flying? Well, a lot has been going on. We are working on new projects, I’ve been busy with work and diploma thesis – but still wanted to post a few photos of me and my favorite tawny friend, enjoying this amazing weather near our cottage house in hills above Vipava Valley …

It’s an illusion!

by

Illusions are fun – and fun was what we needed on this rainy and moody Saturday. So we headed to Museum of Illusions at Ljubljana’s Congress Square for a quick look and had a lot of fun visiting the rooms and experiencing illusions. We loved Rotated room, the Vortex Tunnel, Aeames room and Head on the platter installation the most …
