Trentino-Alto Adige

I’ve shared photos and places from Trentino, mainly because I really love Trentino but I have never  mentioned before that I lived in Trentino for a year. Here I discovered that I’m a naturelover: I love the lakes, the mountains, the long walks and I got attached to the idea of having a dog. I want a dog now

Innsbruck

Innsbruck is the capital city of the Austrian state Tyrol. The city has been shaped by the past but still continues to evolve. Today, the impressive mountain setting and the magnificent, historic buildings meet the attractive modern landmarks.
In the past I've shared Christmas Markets in Innsbruck and Swarovski Kristalwelten but I never wrote about this wonderful city which architecture I love so much.

Marostica’s Human Chess Game

Marostica is a medieval town, located in province of Vicenza, northern Italy, (90 km from Venice). Mostly famous for its spectacular event and folkloristic tradition The Human Game Chess which takes place in the town’s square in the second weekend of September. It’s a tradition started in 1923 inspired by an event from 1454. For this historic event, Marostica is also nicknamed ‘ La Città degli Scacchi ‘ - ‘The City of Chess ’.

Garda Lake

Garda Lake is definitely one of the most popular lakes of Italy. Surrounded by three distinct regions – Lombardy, Trentino Alto-Adige and Veneto, Garda Lake’s cultural diversity attracts a cosmopolitan crowd. It covers an area of 370 km², a length of 52 km and a depth of up to 350 m. I enjoyed Garda’s Alpine climate because it’s beautifully cupped between high mountains (some of them reach altitudes of more than 2,000 m) and that along with the majestic landscapes are the reason why this part of lake Garda is so popular with hikers, climbers and mountain bikers alike. Moreover, it is also the perfect venue for windsurfers and sailors. Ideal wind strengths and conditions render the northern part of Lake Garda a true paradise for them!

Postojna Cave

Postojna Cave is the largest Karst cave and the only one with a double track railway. It’s a fantastic network of 20 km of tunnels, beautiful passages, galleries and chambers with spectacular drop stones, pillars, limestone curtains and other unforgettable forms - one of the most visited natural landmarks in Slovenia.

Predjama Castle

The Castle is located 9 km from Postojna and 60 km from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenija.
Predjama Castle literally owes it‘s name (predjama-in front of the cave).

Bolzano's Pyramids

This is the second post about these wonderful earth pyramids..In my first post I was telling that I once saw these pyramids in a magazine and fell inlove. But the first earth pyramids I saw, werern't these...and since I was whining all day about the pyramids I saw in the magazine that were so much bigger and many more of them, the next day we've decided to search these ones.And here they are. Isn't this place amazing? Unfortunately I could see these ones only from far away but the other ones from near. So it was a win-win that I saw the both places.
... Isn't this a spectacular view ?

Waterfall in Calliano

Calliano - a small, charming village in Trentino-Alto Adige surrounded by a breathtaking landscape of vineyards and mountains. The village is situated along Rio Cavallo, the stream that descends from Folgaria and flows into the Adige River. Near the “Zambel” in Calliano, you find this characteristic waterfall, where the water runs fresh and clear. Far away from the crowds...it's a place I think only locals know about. And the fact that it's a small waterfall in a small village it only makes it very peaceful and truly beautiful.

Genoa's aquarium

Inaugurated in 1992 for the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of the New World, the Aquarium welcomes over a million visitors every year. The Aquarium is situated conveniently in the Old harbor, near the Bigo elevator and Biosphere. It's a nice way to hide from the afternoon sun and also entertaining. I could have stayed there and watch the dolphins playing for hours .. so relaxing ..

The Pyramids of Segonzano

Flipping through a magazine, I once saw in Northern Italy there are these Earth Pyramids and thought that I absolutely needed to see this natural wonder. So once I told someone about them, as a result I got here. These weren't the Pyramids I remembered but I was very happy I saw these ones!

Let it snow! let it snow!

Passo San Valentino, 1314m (Trento) february 2015
I found this in my drafts... and decided to post even if off-season, because it's not about a place - it's about an experience..about doing something for the first time and that was one hell of experience for me. I LOVE SNOW! but let me tell you that only by looking at these pictures I can still feel my butt freezing.

...a day in Brasov

Romania is filled with wonderful castles, lakes, serpentine roads, picturesque farmland and it's a perfect destination for budget travelers as it’s one of the cheapest countries in Europe. During my last roadtrip I decided to finally visit 'Dracula's castle'

Genoa

Liguria is the thinest and the smallest region of Italy. Genoa is the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and capital of Liguria and it's certainly big - the sixth biggest Italian city and the biggest seaport in Italy but the historic center is compact and walkable.
Many palaces, gorgeous churches, alleyways, an acquarium, a harbor and spectacular views - a wonderful city to explore.

Manarola

Heading north from Riomaggiore, the second village is Manarola, with population of 450 people.Manarola as Riomaggiore is characterized by the presence of the colorful house-towers and has preserved medieval fortifications which protected citizens from pirates.

Riomaggiore


Riomaggiore is the largest of the five villages – the region's favourite postcard view (which I told about in my 1st post) and definitely my favourite.

Same place different season

Beaches in Barcelona

Hostals in Barcelona

First of all I have to say that I paid everything and this is not an advertising post... everything here are just my own opinions based on my experiences.
Hostal Nitzs
While I was looking for a hotel, hostel or an appartment to book weeks before my vacation, I was a bit nervous cause the prices were high and the places didn't seem that nice or locations. While going somewhere for 2-3 days might be bearable, if you have a room that you hate on your 10 days vacation .. it can ruin it!

Places to eat in Barcelona

Eating in Barcelona... (and now I'm scrolling down my check-ins on foursquare :)))
In Barcelona as in Milano, Venezia or any other European big city it may be very difficult to find a good place to eat delicious.. mostly you get just a nice place with not very good meal because there are so many tourists and they don't bother to think of satisfying the clients... in the end they'r just tourists and they are leaving soon .. :) and others are coming .. so mostly you pay for the location and not the food..

Santa Colomba Lake

Lago di Santa Colomba is a small alpine lake located in Trentino-Alto Adige. An ideal destination for hikers and fishers or you can collect mushrooms like my boyfriend or just try to sunbathe like me... It's perfect if you want a peacefull and beautiful place away from the crowd.

Ravenna - Mosaic Paradise



Ravenna is in Emilia-Romagna, in northern Italy. It's an ancient city of Art and a mosaic paradise. 
..one ancient city, 10 hours, a wounded leg and a burning desire to finally get out of the bed. Bad Idea.

World tour at the locals

So I recently applied for Bedycasa's project 'world tour at the locals'. Today's the last day. Basically it's a 2 months project that takes you around the world at the locals and all you have to do is share  e v e r y t h i n g. Doesn't it sound like a dream ?

Places in Trentino-Alto Adige

There are a lot of good places in Trentino-Alto Adige and I don't pretend to know even half of them - because I don't. But I'll write about a few places which I loved most. And by the way.. I have a weird relationship with the food and I don't often talk/write about places where to eat/drink/snack but as I said I really loved these ones..
Hoorray.... free publicity )

Hotels vs Hostels

I thought about writing this post since many of my friends ask me 'what's a hostel?' and the next question is 'what do you preffer?'  So let's see....
Here's a photo of a hotel I really loved. I've searched my entire gallery and I couldn't find any photos of hostels unfortunately.

A carnival night in Venice

Venice attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world and every year the Carnival in Venice transforms the city into a cocktail parties and fun with its distinctive appointments of entertainment, gastronomy and music. Locals and tourists walk around dressed and wear magnificient masks. It's beautiful and it's something one must see at least once in a lifetime.

Wandering in Brussels

Brussels is the capital and the largest city in Belgium also it's the capital of European Union. Spoken languages in Brussels are French and Flemish. I heard that Brussels is like split in 2: people that speak French and those who speak  flemish and they don't get along ... mmh but I can get this.. sounds familiar to me.

Stunning view at Thun Castle

On a small hill near Vigo di Ton village in Val di Non towers the Thun Castle. Built in the middle of the 13th century, it served as the seat of the powerful Thun family, which in the valleys Non and Sole possessed other prestigious residences. The castle is located in a wonderful location, atop a hill at 609m. in a breathtaking panoramic position in the middle of apple trees.
Inside the castle, the rooms are a jump in the past, beautiful indeed. The gardens, instead are large and wonderful. You can see the marvelous view from the gardens on my photos.

Christmas Markets in Innsbruck

Shopping before Christmas in Innsbruck was a good idea. Besides.. even getting lost in a shopping center could be fun. or.. not.. Naah, not when you really need to find presents and realize you forgot your cell in the car. Anyway, I liked Christmas markets, I liked Christmas lights and I'm inlove with Innsbruck. It's a nice, small city and during Chistmas time the whole city is full of lights which is paradise for me.
