Phryne the Hetaira

Recently I’ve visited Sissi’s palace located on Corfu. Two gorgeous statues of Achilles looked great and although Sissi’s palace is famous thanks to those statues, something else caught my eye and made me think. Courtyard of this palace is wonderful, with statues of muses and Dionisio, busts of famous Greeks, surprisingly, a Lord Byron’s and,…

Foča town for nature lovers

Once I have started, why stop? There are some really gorgeous places near my heart shaped lake, so I will write something about them. I’ve mentioned that the best way to get to Trnovačko jezero is from Foča. This town, despite all troubles it went trough, it still is the cutest little town surrounded by…

Where is this heart shaped lake?

I’ve came to the conclusion that it is selfish to withhold information to yourself if you can share them with the world. That is why I have decided to reveal details about my favorite place in the world, where is it and how to get there, so that everyone who would like to enjoy it…

Sunrise… sunset

One would think there is not much of a difference between sunrise and sunset. One would be mistaken. On the east coast of the Greek mainland, there are many places where you can experience a unique daily event – sun rising from the clear endless sea. The west coast, however, gives you many great views…

Shape of my heart

This place is so precious to me that I’m almost not willing to tell you about it. This is a place of true, wild nature. My favorite place in the whole world. I’m asking you to keep my secret safe and if you ever come to visit, take a good care of it. Somewhere among…

Barefooted

    We started off very late and got to the edge of a forest very, very late. Untill the last village, our phones were working, but when we left the last village, following signs our fellow campers left us so we could find a camp, phones were dead and all we could do is move…

Where Alexander the Great bows

This post is a sequel of a resent post The forgotten city of Pella. Dion and Pella are great places to visit on the way to Mount Olympus. Goal of my first visit to Olympus was to see these archeological sites, but next trip will be more of a mountaineering venture. Unlike the first time,…

The forgotten city of Pella

While I’m planning my next trip to Mount Olympus during September, I want to share some memories and information from a couple of years ago, from a visit to Macedonia (a geographical and historical region of Greece). We were traveling across Balkans, through Serbia, FYR of Macedonia (this is not the same as Macedonia of…

Climbing the Acropolis

Afternoon we spent in Athens wondering the streets and climbing the Acropolis was so much better then my last trip with agency and a large group I had to follow. That is why I wanted to share the experience and inspire people to travel as true individuals. We used metro and this was a great…

Glaciers and their secrets

Originally posted on Meet Iceland:
Around 10.2% of the total land area of Iceland is covered by glaciers. Due to global worming, they are retreating at an accelerating rate. This alone would be enough reason to talk about them as much is possible and hope that appreciation for nature and its wonders will come from…

Man is the measure of all things

The thrill from making my own Parthenon kind of dwindled the more I was looking at it. Model was kind of weird and not closely as perfect as original building. And it was no wonder because the more I looked into the original, it become more and more amazing. Even in its remains, as it…

I made my own Parthenon :)

I bought this model during my stay at Athens. It looked rather simple, but it turns out you have to cut every little peace and glue it separately. It was a whole weekend of work but it was worth it – my very own Parthenon was done.
