TRAVEL BLOG

2020 was almost a dream. A dream of all the places that could not be reached and traveled to. 2020 was also an opportunity to explore and reconnect with our homes and backyards – as much as permitted and within the limitations. For me, Tasmania’s been another daydreaming reality, one that kept popping up in my thoughts from time to time. Road-tripping Tasmania was actually my last longer solo travel experience, already back in 2019! I reckon this only means it’s time for another alone adventure. If I had a chance to re-do the whole 3-week road trip, I wouldn’t change a thing. I would still circle around the island the way I did.

While busy summer/weekend days and nights give you a sense of being a part of something bigger, I was actually able to connect with the town on a much deeper level when I had it all to myself. Put aside (at least) one full day to explore Piran. In reality, you…

The ones who know me and who helped me shape into the person I am today. Whenever I’m back home, my priority is to spend as much time as possible with the loved ones, my family and friends. Those moments are most precious to me. So I hardly ever go out and explore the backyard. However, this past summer I finally made my way up to Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain, and am now absolutely captivated by the gorgeous…
