Insta Friday: Ischia

Beautiful island with lot o spas. After seeing the movie Avanti, which was partially filmed at the Island and it takes place there, I had to visit this place. I already did twice and I really love it. Today it is here for my Insta Friday.

Insta Friday: Rome

Trip across the borders in todays Insta Friday. Visit to the eternal city of Rome, the main sites and ice cream :-).

Insta Friday: Belgium

In todays Friday Instagram Gallery I will take you for a trip to Belgium, namely to Bruges and Brussels with Atomium.

Insta Friday: Česko Saské Švýcarsko

Českosaské Švýcarsko is kind of funny geographical name of the area, meaning Czech/Bohemian (Česko) Saxon (Saské) Switzerland (Švýcarsko). Any idea where you can find it? Partially in the Czech Republic, partially in Germany (the Saxony part of the country, but check the wiki because “Saxony” can be pretty complicated even within Germany :-)).
You can visit both Switzerlands (Boheiman and Saxon) in my today’s Insta Friday post.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rise/Set

For another (sun) Rise/Set challenge I have decided to look back in my computer and I have found couple of nice pictures of sun from my holidays. I hope you will enjoy them:

Early morning trip from Istanbul.

Sunrise above the ocean in Madeira.

Maltesean sunrise.

Couple of sunsets from Montenegro in the gallery:

Sunset above Ta’izz in Yemen.

And finally we caught the sun during the sunset in Tunisia.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorite Place

It was quite difficult to chose my favorite place for Weekly Photo Challenge, as I love almost every place I had a chance to visit, but finally I decided for one that really touched my heart.

I was there in October 2015 for the first time and I have been there for 4 weeks, not surprisingly I have chosen the place also for our holiday in summer 2017. Where is it? It is just a little suburb of Brighton in the UK called Shoreham-by-Sea.

In the first gallery pictures from early autumn morning walks to school around River Adur with typical houseboat colony.

I also got a chance to find nice friends in Shoreham / Lancing and it is also thank to them that I love the place so much.

Lake view.

For our visit in summer 2017 we found an accommodation right in the river in a houseboat in a shape of firetruck. The stay there was really pleasant and I fell in love with the place even more.

Beautiful view from the boat across the river to the city center during the day.

Shoreham over Adur.

And at night.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Rain or Rainbow

For this week Cees Fun Foto Challenge: Rain or Rainbow I have chosen for you few photos from Iceland.

The first two are taken at the South Iceland almost at the same place, the same time of year, but 2 years difference (2015 and 2017).

These four were all taken in Gullfoss, 3 of them are with rainbow (2001, 2016, 2017) and one (2015) with rain :-).

Couple of years ago I posted about Rainbow above Prague and you can find my post with pictures here :-).

And one about Rainbow colors here and about Water here.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sunset to Sunrise

Promenade.

For this weeks CFFC I decided to share with you pictures taken through the week I have spent in Nice in February 2015. I was not able to get rid of one of the places in Nice and I was coming back there every evening to make a picture. More or less they look the same but as the sky was changing, the pictures vary.

I hope you will enjoy it as I did :-).

Travel theme: Costume

I love costumes, I love dressing up for some special ocassion and I really love taking vintage photos.
A few years ago we visited Bulgary, we travelled around the coutnry and several days we spent by the sea at small town Pomorie. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there, specially evening walks on promenade and by the sea. Fortunatelly, the first evening I found a special stall, where they had a lot of beautiful colorful dresses and they were doing vintage photos.

Promenade and colorful dresses

We were looking in astonishment how a family with small girls were carefully dressed up, every little detail was handled.
