    Day Trip to Colmar

    Colmar has been in our list of places to visit for a long time. The short distance from Zurich is very attractive (Colmar is only 150 KM from Zurich) and we can easily go for a day trip anytime. This was actually our second attempt to visit the city. Unfortunately, the first time we tried to visit, we had an accident on the motorway only 30 KM away from reaching Colmar and we were forced to return home. Luckily, nobody got hurt but we had to postpone our visit for few more months. Almost a year later, we finally managed to reach our destination. We were greeted with a beautiful…

    The 5 Best Digital SLR Cameras

    I am passionate about photography and there is no better way to register our special moments than with photos. I love taking photos of landscapes, cities where I travel and live. After a long trip, reviving the moments and places I visited just makes me happy, that is why I get so disappointed when I look at some photos and the quality of the colours is poor and not sharp. Taking a good camera during my trips is essential to me and there are some pretty good cameras in the market for reasonable and decent prices. I personally like the DSLR cameras, even though they are a pain to carry.…

    Day Trip To Freiburg Im Breisau

    We moved to Zurich in 2016 and since then we had been planning to visit Freiburg. I had a particular interest in visiting the city because while we were still living in London, Jozef received an offer to work in Freiburg and as I was not prepared to leave London at that time, we decided not to take the offer. I always kept a bit of doubt in my mind asking myself if we had made the right decision but, shortly after that, we received another offer to work and live in Zurich. As it looked like the universe wanted to give us a push, we decided to take the…

    Day Trip to Oliva

    At the beginning of the month, we spent wonderful days in Valencia in Spain (I already did a post about Valencia, to see click here), we also took 2 days to travel around and visit some cities in the region. One of these cities was the charming Oliva. Oliva is a small town with a population of 27,374 inhabitants. The town has a charming historic center with restaurants and bars but the main attraction of Oliva is its 7 km of blue flag beaches with soft sand bathed by the Mediterranean. Oliva has long been a very popular holiday option among the Spaniards and the town has gained more and…

    Oceanogràfic in Valencia

    During our last trip to Valencia, we had the chance to visit the Oceanographic, Europe’s largest aquarium containing representatives of the world’s major marine ecosystems (more than 45,000 different examples of 500 marine species). The complex, which is impressive in design and size, was created by the architect Felix Candela and the structural engineers Alberto Domingo and Carlos Lázaro. The water park is divided into ten areas and each building is identified with the following aquatic environments: the Mediterranean, the Swamp, Tropical and Temperate Seas, Oceans, Antarctica, the Arctic, Islands, and the Red Sea, as well as the Dolphinarium with 24 million litres of water and a depth of 10.5…

    Valencia

    If you follow me on Instagram you know that recently I was traveling along the Valencian coast in Spain. As expected, Valencia welcomed us with the sun shining every day 🙂 The trip was amazing, Valencia’s cuisine is delicious (Valencia is the home of Paella), the city is full of attractions and the architecture is to impress! Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and there are several reasons to visit this beautiful city: modernist architecture, culture, lively nightlife, incredible traditional food, miles of soft sandy beaches, among many other things. The blend of traditional with modern and futuristic buildings makes the city of Valencia a unique and must-see…

    New Year in Granada

    Hello guys! I know I’m a bit late with this topic, but I still decided to share with you the end of the wonderful year we spent in Spain. We spent Christmas at my mother-in-law’s house in Slovakia. From there we took a plane to Madrid, rented a car and went to Toledo, Cuenca, Granada, Cordoba and Malaga. In total we drove more than 2,000 kilometers! It was an amazing trip, the countryside of Spain is wonderful, the highway to Granada and its endless olive trees in the mountains … just looking forward to go back to discover Spain more and more! Today I’m going to talk about our new…

    A Perfect Morning in Zurich

    We moved to Zurich in the end of 2016 because of Jozef’s work. Although I had been in Switzerland few times before, I had never visited Zurich. I really didn’t know what to expect, moving to a city I didn’t know was a bit scary but the same time exciting. The decision had to be made quickly and without hesitation, we took the opportunity and never looked back. I love how life is quieter here compared to London, that is what we needed at that time. Also, I love how easy it is to travel to so many exciting places. We are driving distance to Italy, France, Germany, Austria and…

    Day Trip to Cuenca

    The last Christmas we spent in Spain, me and Jozef rented a car to travel through the countryside. We started in Madrid and finished our trip in Malaga. We drove through wonderful and unforgettable places and one of them was the city of Cuenca in the region of Castilla-La Mancha. Cuenca has some of the most impressive landscapes I have ever seen, which makes this city one of the most memorable cities in Spain. The old center of Cuenca is a world heritage site and the intriguing Casas Colgadas, which were built in the 14th century, are undoubtedly the best attraction of the city. The main attraction in the city…

    Toledo

    Toledo is one of those cities that pleasantly surprises you and makes you to fall in love with it. The city is considered by many as a “second Rome” and is undoubtedly a unique city with its history and charm. Most people visit Toledo during the day coming from Madrid, which makes the city busy during the day and calm and quiet at night. We chose to stay in Toledo for 3 nights to get to know the city well and also to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. However, Toledo is a small town and attractions can be seen in 1 day. Toledo’s Cathedral…
