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 …

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.

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 …

Long holiday weekend is here and we’re so excited about all the food and family time that’s planned for the next days. Besides baking Christmas cookies and wrapping gifts, we started Saturday with a super sunny and quite warm hike to Nanos. It was so lovely. There was a lot of snow up on the plateau about two weeks ago but since then …
