Vacations on Rhodes

By | 2020-11-06T18:36:07+01:00 October 17th, 2020|

In July 2020 we spent one week on Rhodes. We stayed in a little village Pefkos, in the Stella Hotel. This was our first experience of a settled holiday (hotel, pool, restaurants, beach, all in one place) with a baby. To my surprise, this vacation was really relaxing.

Going on a long trip during our parental leave, just the three of us, was not even brought to discussion: we knew that we would do it! We were playing with the thoughts of taking Route 66 through the USA or spending two months in Asia (Japan, mostly). Though the pandemic has significantly restricted our choices, we adapted [...]

Four gems of Slovenia

By | 2020-01-14T23:34:00+01:00 January 14th, 2020|

We have been on a trip through Austria, Croatia and Slovenia more than 2,5 days ago, but somehow I managed to write only one post about that trip: link. However, in my opinion, some places in Slovenia cannot be left out when you are planning your trip to that region; here are they: Ljubljana Ljubljana is the largest [...]
