Vilnius, Lithuania

On the 17th of October 2015, I explored 24 hours in Vilnius the capital city of Lithuania, a city easy to get around on foot if you don’t mind walking endlessly for an hour or so then take a break somewhere before you start another endless walk.

From the airport, I took a direct bus into the city centre which cost 1 euro and takes approximately 15 minutes. Then I was ready to explore and eat! Here are some images I snapped in order; the first image is a street in the Old Town of Vilnius which is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Image two are the people to watch the people 😉 The next image are some vibrant baroque architecture buildings which can be seen throughout. Always curious and getting lost in alleyways and those are the magical moments where you can spend many moments wandering through alleyways like image four.

The soup is pink! Oh my, its like bright pink! Wow, its pink! Those were my thoughts when I first saw it! But I love being open to food as its all part of the cultural travel experience. The soup is a traditional cold Lithuanian dish called Sotieji Saltibarsciai and surprisingly tasty. I tried this dish at a restaurant called Dvaras which cost 2.35 euro and the next dish is another traditional Lithuanian dish called Tradiciniai Didzkukulia which has meat inside and cost 3.95 euro. The price tag is affordable to try some delicious dishes when visiting.

Hope you enjoyed this and have a great week! 🙂

 

 

Lake Bled, Slovenia

Take me anywhere…

On the 10th of October 2015, I travelled to Slovenia for 24 hours solely for the purpose of visiting Lake Bled. I would of loved to stay longer and explore more but due to time constraints I would have to settle for Lake Bled. And it’s definitely not a bad settlement.

I have been longing to see Lake Bled for many years and would always just beam when others would post their photos of the beautiful lake. So when it was my turn, I literally squealed at my first sight of her not a care in the world if people stared because they did.

Here are some images I snapped in order; the first image are some boats being parked on the lake during Autumn. The next image is a view of Bled Castle and the next image is the Church of Assumption which you can visit with an entry fee.

There are no motorised boats allowed on the water, a popular method of travel to the island is by renting a rowing boat which is the fourth image with another solo boat being parked aside in image five. The last image was where I sat for some time just admiring the beauty of nature and Lake Bled watching people fish, read and simply just daydreaming.

I hope you enjoyed this and hope you all have a great week.

They say there’s no rest for the wicked, no wonder I feel so tired.

I flew out to Budapest at 6am on the weekend and spent 24 hours with no booked accommodation. I figured if I was flying back 6am the next morning, I would travel on no sleep. It’s not the first time so I don’t understand why I haven’t learnt my lesson 😉

I work Monday to Friday, hence, for the weekend trip and always look for cheap deals to travel on the weekend when I can. From the airport, I caught a bus and metro (530 HUF together) and decided to get off at Ferenciek Tere from Kobanya-Kispest as there are a street of shops I wanted to browse and it is approximately a 10 minute walk to the famous Chain Bridge and a 20 minute walk to the Parliament House as I wanted to see them first.

Budapest in one word, colourful. So you can imagine my excitement! Even though it rained the whole day which proved somewhat challenging for photography, I couldn’t stop smiling as I would stand under my red umbrella staring at the incredible buildings and streets.

Here are some images I snapped in order; the first image is a view of the Hungarian Parliament from the Chain Bridge and the second image is the Hungarian Parliament from a different perspective. The next two images three and four is the St. Stephen’s Basilica from the outside and a glimpse of the inside. The next image is the Chain Bridge on a rainy dreary day but still spectacular to look at!

Image six is one of my favourite buildings because of the all the colours meshed together and the building is just striking in itself. I love the facade of the windows and the balcony, such gracious style. What a stunning design of the windows with tints of pink in the next image! The last image is now one of my favourite coffee shops anywhere, its called Espresso Embassy which I stumbled upon and I highly recommend it if you’re in need of good coffee, vibe and wifi.

P.S. Apologies for the lack of post lately as I have been pretty busy trying to organise my life (more on that later on a different post) and generally just feeling run down.

I hope you enjoyed this and have an awesome week my lovelies.

Shouldn’t life be our favourite adventure?

On Saturday 22nd of August 2015, I spent 24 hours in Dusseldorf one of Germany’s wealthiest cities which is posh and modern hypotonized by striking architectures, buzzing nightlife and businesses. Many locals enjoy their social life alongside the Rhine River which boasts many restaurants and bars and when you can get a view of the sunset as seen above, I can understand why.

Here are some images I snapped in order; The Rhine River Bridge, the next two photos are the beautiful Hofgarten Park, don’t forget to always look up as the sun shines on myself, reflection of the Gourmet Festival, a happy child getting a balloon from a clown, distinct architecture building, a man peering out and the charmful windows, the people watching the people 😉

And the last two photos is the amazing sunset at the Rhine River as I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face as I watched it go down.

I really hoped you enjoyed this and hope you have a great week!

Danke, thank you.

Hello

Hope everyone had a lovely week!

I am playing catch up and wanted to share some photos of my second trip to the magical city of Venice in Italy back on the 1st of March 2014.

The first four photos including photo six and seven show the marvel of Venice, a city on water and it’s entirety listed as a World Heritage Site. The fifth photo is myself trying on a beautiful masquerade and the last photo is also myself with a shining nose after I quickly ran into a coffee shop as it started pouring rain. Naturally.

I hope you enjoy the photos and your week. 🙂
