A Word A Week Challenge – Face

Lot of Faces for A Word A Week Challenge I found in a beautiful park in France, at the place called Clos Luce in the city of Amboise on Loire river. Leonardo da Vinci lived at the house and now you will find there his museum. Surrounding garden is very beautiful, with lots of devices invented by da Vinci, but also decorated with his works unusual way. Enjoy walking throug the park and meet some famous paintings.

A Word A Week Challenge – Mountain

For Mountain‘s challenge I take you to the highest mountains we have in Czech Republic. Their name is Krkonoše and they are located at the north part of our country. The highest peak, Sněžka (Snowy hill), is the Czech Republic’s highest point with an elevation of 5,256 ft (1,602 m). I visited it few years ago in April, when Spring was coming, weather was beautiful, flowers started to bloom and the peaks were still covered with snow, the springs were full of crystal clear water.
