Picturesque Štrbské Pleso (Slovakia)

3

I’ve been to Štrbské Pleso twice, it’s a lake in the High Tatras area (middle up of Slovakia) and it was amazing.

I couldn’t believe I had the chance to visit this beautiful and picturesque place. My first time there, it was summer, so there were lots of greens, birds and nice weather. Second time was in fall – almost winter, different colors of plants and trees, no ducks near the lake, and overall cold weather.

I was liking the scene of inverted reflection in water, so lovely and peaceful, just like paradise. You can walk around the lake, experience the atmosphere and breathe in some phytoncide. Also, you can go camping or book a hotel here for a few nights, go hiking, or rock climbing.

In winter, I heard it’s a wonderful place for snow activities. It’s a pity that I couldn’t stay longer ‘til winter, but it gives me a good reason to come back to this place. Anyway, try to stop by Štrbské Pleso the next time you come to Slovakia!

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
