Autumn In Hungary’s Zemplén Mountains

We took another trip in mid-November and caught the last days to enjoy the autumn colors in the forest of Zemplén Mountains before all the leaves fell (and before all the hotels got closed to tourists in Hungary). We only spent a weekend there, and we’ll surely go back when we can take trips again.…

Cape Kamenjak, Our Favorite Place In Istria

It was not our first visit to Croatia, but the first one to Istria. We fell for it, and our favorite place there was undoubtedly Cape Kamenjak. “What? Have you been to Rovinj?” Yes, we have, and Rovinj is a close second favorite. But that’s the way we are, usually more impressed by unspoilt nature…

What To Love About Fall?

It’s not easy for us to love fall. Our favorite season is summer, followed closely by late spring. Fall is complicated. It can be beautiful, but sad.

Whitewaters Valley (or Bielovodská dolina in Slovak) is located further from Štrbské Pleso and the other popular central locations in Slovakia’s High Tatras.

Monthly Recap: October 2020

With a 10 days mandatory quarantine in the beginning, followed by a rainy week and a weekend spent with our families, not much travelling happened in October. Nothing, to be exact.

Why Does Not Being Able To Travel Hurt So Much?

Sure, people can live without travel. Countless people in this world do that, because they can’t afford travelling for various reasons.
