Relax and enjoy the deep blue sea – Piran, Slovenia

If you missed, check my last post with more photos of Piran but I saved same sweet pictures just for you in this hot hot superhot summer weather!


As you climb up for the view, you will have to walk quite a bit. But if you don’t wanna go all the way up it’s fine too. I think this view is good enough. You don’t need to die of the exhaustion just for the photo. It’s 40 degrees in celsius so that’s hell hot.

I saved the best for last! My absolute favourite picture of Piran is just a view form the ground looking at the little houses so close to the sea. Love it!


I hope that you stay away from the sun or at least don’t burn on it.

Have a wonderful week and don’t forget to follow me! ๐Ÿ˜„

Before the spring came – Ljubljana, Slovenia

I was going through my pictures from a month ago and saw that I didn’t post this amazing city view! I was amazed with the snow still staying ton the mountains fitting perfectly into this pic. Gotta say, this is the only time I really like to see some snow, even in photos ๐Ÿ˜› And yes, it does reminds me on white chocolate topping on the ice-cream (obsession much?).

It’s lovely you don’t have to go far up to get a nice landscape shot of the Ljubljana, sometimes the small city is not a bad thing, not every capital city needs to be a giant. Small and safe all the way. ๐Ÿ˜€ I always feel so comfortable in this city.

Take a deep breath – Portoroลพ, Slovenia

Warm sun and super clean sea! What else do you sometimes need? ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope this picture will bring you some if you currently don’t have it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Labor day! I hope you are having a lot of delicious food and that you are relaxing somewhere with your family in the nature or at least close to the sea!

Rain and mountains – Vogel, Slovenia

Even tho is raining I had to take pictures of this almost mystical sight. The clouds on top of the mountains are stunning. The calmness of the lake and atmosphere of the forest surrounding me is just the best therapy when your stress is all over you. When you are standing in the place like this a lot of thoughts are just leaving your mind and new positive are coming in, it’s all you need sometimes.

It’s too bad I didn’t get sunny pics of this amazing place, but this is beautiful too.

Surrounded by history – Split, Croatia

Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, centered on the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian.

A must see; Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

Probably my favorite place EVER are Plitvice lakes. There is something about waterfalls I adore. The pover in wich they flow is hypnotizing for me.

It’s officially spring but it winter in Plitvice. There are still residues of snow and the trees are still at sleep. The only color there is you can find in beautiful unpolluted lakes. You can imagine the beauty when everything blooms. Half of the trails were flooded but that didn’t stop me or some people to take off our snickers and go as fast as we can through flooded places. The water was ice cold and my feet froze in instant but as soon as I reached dry my feet were never so nicely warm. ๐Ÿ™‚

There is a lot to say about Plitvice lakes but I would rather show you ๐Ÿ˜€

more pics in following days

park, lakes, waterfall, Croatia,
The national park was founded in 1949 and is situated in the mountainous karst area of central Croatia, at the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The important north-south road connection, which passes through the national park area, connects the Croatian inland with the Adriatic coastal region.
The protected area extends over 296.85 square kilometres (73,350 acres). About 90% of this area is part of Lika-Senj County, while the remaining 10% is part of Karlovac County.
In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register among the first natural sites worldwide. Each year, more than 1.1 million visitors are recorded. Entrance is subject to variable charges, up to 180 kuna or around $32USD per adult in peak season. Strict regulations apply.

Angry sea or “just” Bora

The area where some of the strongest bora winds occur is the Velebit mountain range in Croatia. This seaside mountain chain, spanning 145 kilometers, represents a huge weather and climatic divide between the sharp continental climate of the interior, characterized by significant day/night temperature differences throughout the year, and the Adriatic coast, with a Mediterranean climate. Bora occurs because these two divided masses tend to equalize.

Oh that Bora! Scary and strog, making the waves even scarier. I really wouldn’t like to live on an island when a “normal” 140km/h Bora blows.

Who can blame the sea for being angry at us? If I was mother-nature I would also be angry looking what people do.

bora, sea, scary, wave
Bora! The changeable Bora can often be felt all over Dalmatia, Istria, the Slovenian Littoral, Trieste, and the rest of the Adriatic east coast. It blows in gusts. The Bora is most common during the winter. It blows hardest, as the meteorologist Baron Ferdinand von Wrangel explained it by extending Julius Hann’s explanation of Alpine katabatic winds to the north Adriatic, when a polar high-pressure area sits over the snow-covered mountains of the interior plateau behind the Dinaric coastal mountain range and a calm low-pressure area lies further south over the warmer Adriatic.

I’m still trying to figure out how you photograph waves, hmm, my first try.

Rain is coming

There is something about looking at the sea before rain. It’s so dark that even in shallow place it looks deep and dangerous. It makes you think how nature has definitely the upper hand on us and it needs to remind us.
