Not the highest nor the most challenging but definitely special and by all means worth the hours spent on hiking – Snowdon. The highest peak in Snowdonia National Park and the whole of Wales. Doable within 5-6 hours there and back from Pen-y-Pas and that makes it a perfect idea for a day out (if … More Snowdonia – From Pen-y-Pass to Snowdon!
Beautiful, busy, attractive, expensive. That’s York. Once a capital of England now a city full of historic sights that await to be discovered. Fortunately it’s only a couple of hours trip from mine so I made it a day trip. I wish the weather wasn’t so surprising and the railway museum didn’t shut so early, … More York: The former capital of England
Good morning, evening, afternoon! Time for a short recap from the second day in Rome. I was lucky to be granted a glorious, warm and sunny day and could enjoy my tramping around the city to the full extend! Some people complained it was too hot and too sunny – but they obviously take things … More All roads lead to Rome – Glorious Sunday!
After a busy morning in Vatican I decided to take it easy in the city suburbs, meaning Rome (someone would probably like to punch me for saying that!). Of course I am (sort of) joking. Saying that, the catholic church influence in Rome is visible and one could say that Vatican City is the actual … More All roads lead to Rome – Saturday afternoon
As the title says – all roads (air ways too!) lead to the eternal city. I am deeply surprised I never got to see it before, considering this is one the the big three – next to London and Paris that one must visit when in Europe. But here I am back in Italy. I’ve … More All roads lead to Rome – Saturday morning in Vatican City
Parks… I love parks! This little hideaway from a busy life if you happen to live in a big city. Or a small concrete one. I have recently visited two: Sefton Park and Knowsley Safari Park, both in Liverpool. As they are located across the river I cannot just go and visit whenever. It was more of … More Liverpool Parks: Sefton & Knowsley Safari
I really quick glance. I do feel guilty sometimes when I visit a city and do not spend enough of time there to properly see it. Let alone discover back streets and feel the vibe. That was the case with Milan. It’s an amazing city (so I’ve heard…!) that has got plenty to offer. Unfortunately … More Milan – a quick glance!
Yes, that’s correct! The city was kind enough to let me spend a night in and enjoy Sunday on it’s record-busy streets! Why record busy? Well. That was Easter Sunday and it happened to be a day of celebrations and Explosion of the Cart on the main square! Also a brilliant weather all-round the clock. Plenty … More A weekend in Florence – Sunday (2/2)
I think I will not lie if I say that the city is one of the most picturesque cities in Italy (or the World?). Many would claim it’s the most beautiful of them all. There is something in this as Florence is one and only. And other cities are Florence-wannabe. I have heard multiple nicknames … More A weekend in Florence – Saturday (1/2)
The weather forecast for that day was dreadful. I sincerely hoped it would not rain as I knew a bit of a walk awaited me from the train station to the town centre (half an hour walk uphill). Of course there was an option to take a bus, but I could not call myself a … More Siena – a postcard from Tuscany.
