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.

And finally I made my husband to go for a photo as well.

The next day, as we went for the final photos, we were watching another family being taken, really great again!

A Word A Week Challenge – Action

A Word A Week Challenge for this week is Action. A few weeks before I wrote a post about the Czech tradition of going to the cottage for the weekend. I wrote about weekends that we spend with friends in the nature, at the Dashwood dorp on Kocába river. Today I show you how we spent the days there – playing volleyball, “nohejbal” (Czech speciality, similar to volleyball but played with your foots/legs and head).

Ball players in Dashwood playground again

After the game you need to take a bath to wash away the dust or clay.

As a bonus I offer you also 2 pictures from Zakynthos and believe me, it’s me and my husband on it :-).

Bonus number 2, me and my husband again, this time in aquapark in Nesebr in Bulgary.
