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.

Summer house of Constantine The Great

My long ago forgotten love towards archaeology woke up when I heard a wonderful archaeological site Mediana is finally open, after many years, presenting 17th century old residence with around 1000 square meters of finest mosaic. Residence is actually summer house of Roman emperor Constantine The Great. He ruled during the first half of forth…

Where centuries have tamed powerful Drina river

Last week I was very pleased to find out that reconstruction of the famous bridge over Drina is finished. Every time I go by this bridge on my way to Republic of Srpska, it is alway under reconstruction, covered, hiding its beauty from the eyes of passengers. But this time it was proudly standing, straddling…

Geysers – as if volcanoes and glacier caves are not enough

I’m planing to visit Geysir in Haukadalur. This geysir is, in a way, The Geyser of the world because it was the first known geyser to modern Europeans and the one that all the others got a name after. English word geyser originate from the Icelandic verb geysa, “to gush”…

The sons of the Vikings dominating over England once again!

Deserved victory of the Icelandic football team over England was celebrated appropriately in Reykjavik! On July 3. I will be cheering for them against France. I hope you will join me! Although proud of their Viking roots, Icelanders will tell you they were not warriors and conquerors but more of a storytellers, fisherman and pioneers…
