Cappadocia is the land of impressive fairy chimneys and rock formations: you will feel like you are in a fairy tale. Enjoy the panoramic views, hike beautiful valley trails and wild canyons, experience hot air balloons and sleep at authentic cave hotels. When you visit the frescoed churches completely carved into rock, it will take you 1.000 years back in time.

Cappadocia is the name of the region, was formed 60 million years ago by erosion of soft layers of lava and ash from Mount Erciyes (Argeus), Mount Hasan and Mount Güllü composing with wind and rain over millions of years.

Weekend Travel to Lisbon

Lisbon is built on seven hills, two of which rise from the city centre. The streets with climbing hills are full of cafe`s and old shops. The old trams in their bright colour is photographers` delight. Do not miss Baixa and Alfama districts.

There are two large squares, Praca Dom Pedro and Praca Figueira, surrounded with 18th-19th century buildings, mosaics on pavements, statues and fountains.

Lisbon was built on a maritime history and the city has a photogenic waterfront area, especially sunset at Belem tower. You will enjoy  weekend in Lisbon and have many great shots of the city.

Ireland Dublin

A long weekend travel to Dublin in February, and things to do in Dublin in 3 days.

Dublin is known both for lively atmosphere and historical scene. The city offers a lot to see, still it is remarkably small and intimate. A self guided walking tour does not need a lot of preparation and this is the best way to discover Dublin. The best sights are situated in a comparatively small area. O’Connell Bridge and Ha`penny Bridge are located in the central of Dublin.

Dolomites in North Italy

Dolomites, Italy is an amazing choice for wild nature, mountain views and roads, calm natural lakes. I believe that there is a great experience here every season: autumn with wonderful colourful trees, winter for ski, spring and summer for hiking.

We spent one week driving around the most popular locations such as Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Lago di Braies, Cortina, Passo Giau, Passo Rolle, San Marino do Castrozza, Alpe di Siusi and Val di Funes.

I would like to share the best photography spots in Dolomites and our experiences from the trip.

Slovenia – Lake Bled in Autumn, October 10th

Autumn colors are great for landscape design in photography. Slovenia is one of the best travel destinations in October to paint your photos with the amazing colors. We went to 3-4 days trip to Slovenia, mainly to Lake Bled and Škofja Loka in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. Lake Bled is one Alpine paradise spot and St Marys Church sits on the huge rock on a tiny island. Castle Bled, is situated on a 130 meter cliff for more than a thousand years.

El Campello

There are many reasons to stay at El Campello instead of busy touristic cities at SouthWest Coast of Spain around Alicante. El Campello old town is built around the former fishing area, therefore still protected small fishing houses exist in the centre.

This place is preserved and has a nice cosmopolitan character.

Weekend holiday in Budapest

Budapest is also known as Paris of the east. Buda on the hill and flat Pest side is connected by magnificent bridges over the river Danube. The rich history, great city panorama and friendly people of Budapest made my holiday memorable and I would like to come back here in Spring time.

Alicante Province

Day trip from Alicante to Benidorm, Wine Tour and Altea

There are plenty of places to visit around Costa Blanca region. Benidorm is located in the province of Alicante, one hour north on Mediterranean cost. Benidorm has most skyscrapers in Spain, therefore called as Spanish Manhattan. It has the most high-rise buildings per capita. It has been a tourist destination within Spain since 1925, when its port was extended and the first hotels were built. Perhaps, the real “boom” of Benidorm as a coastal resort did not happen until the 1950s, when it became a famous summer destination. Today there are more foreign tourists than Spanish tourists.
