A ship in harbor is safe

but that is not what ships are built for. — John A. Shedd

Finally … June 14th I’m going to the Lake Garda. It will not be a holiday but more a trip but I’m already looking forward. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since I was on the Lake Garda and I strongly miss the Italian coffee. It’s still the best!

Warsaw or Warszawa

Have you ever thought about choosing Warsaw as a citybreak destination? To be honest, I wasn’t. What a surprise? Warsaw or Warszawa is really a beautiful city to be visited. I was totally surprised. Thanks God Adria Airways is flying directly to Warsaw from Slovenia, so it took a good hour and fifteen minutes to get there. For the first time I used Uber in Warsaw from and to the airport and works.

The city is very clean and somehow it is brings peace.  There are many city parks especially a huge park in the center of the city which is called Lazienski Park. You can find birds, squirrels, ducks, even peacocks are there. If you are going to visit the old town, you will find a monument of the world war II first before you reach the old town. Then you will found the market square, the mermaid statue, Sigismund´s column, royal castle, presidential palace, university of Warsaw, etc…. and Pałac Kultury i Nauki or Palace of Culture and Science. I heard that the Poles wanted to demolish it … I don’t know if this is true but it would really be a pity. The Palace of Culture and Science is really fit in the cityscape.

Everything was perfect streets, public transport, people, coffee except food… almost all food is like my home-made food (Slovenian food), but it was really good 🙂

Now I have a problem … to post photos from Paris (I still have a lot of them) or now from Warsaw? The first photos are from the iphone X

See you next year Warsaw…

Never to go on trips

… with anyone you do not love. ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

That’s why in the last few years I’m traveling alone… only 12 days to Warsaw.

Btw… from 7.7. to 12.7. I’m on holidays in Warszawa. Is any of the locals interested in a photo walk?

The Interview

Today, I need to do my second interview, which will be published on the site NAKED CITIES JOURNAL. I’m very glad that you guys notice my photos and you like them.

This week was very difficult, I got the flu. I do not know how at this time when it’s summer. But I’m happy it happened now and not before the departure to Warsaw.

Days pass by

Sometimes you have to accept the fact that certain things will never go back to how they use to be… like Paris.

After Paris…

… I’m already at home for 5 days and I’m still not right … every time after arrival, I have a problem…  I don’t know why…

The idea around what is called “old Paris” is more based on fantasms than on an ancient reality.
People have some preconceptions about Paris and if what they see doesn’t meet these preconceptions they believe it’s because Paris is not anymore the same. Obviously Paris is evolving like any other cities but many of the preconceptions about what Paris was once are false.
Paris is a large city and it has been a large city for a very long time.

I love the old traditional paris cafes and brasseries, but this year I tried new ones and I was pleasantly surprised. Finally, very good coffee in Paris… Strada CaféKB Café ShopFringe CoffeeLa Fontaine de Belleville and of course Boot Café.

All the photos were made with the iPhone … others follow. By the way, D-70 to Warsaw … I can not wait.

Can I walk along with you

or can I buy you a coffee? Oh god, it’s starting to rain. That’s okay. I don’t mind getting wet. Paris is the most beautiful in the rain. – Midnight in Paris Movie Quotes
