    Lomnicky Stit

    Hello there, height lovers! I am just in love with Slovakian Tatras, to be precise - the High Tatras, or as the natives call them Vysokye Tatry. These mountains are situated in the north of the country, and right near the mountain there is a small road (called the route of love, or just Nr.537). On that road there are a lot of relaxation and tourism towns, often beloved by winter sports lovers, but during the summer (or even spring) you can still find a lot to do there.

    If you ever just want to get away from it all (the city, the people, the traffic, the noise) and rather immerse yourself in total dilapidation and desolation, then the Salton Sea is definitely a spot worth checking out.

    San Andres Place and Chapel of Obispo in Madrid

    It was a sunny day of February, and I was visiting Madrid with two friends. We stopped in this area for lunch : ‘Un bocadillo y un coca por favor’ in the café of the corner and decided to take a seat. It was very strange, there were only old people with dogs, maybe twelve or thirteen dogs running away, barking at me and sniffing at my sandwich!........
