Finally, I can share a fresh natural photo taken in my Czech homeland with you. Earlier this year, some very bleak estimates were made, predicting that the Czech Republic would experience what would be the worst drought in at least 500 years this summer but so far, we have been getting a decent amount of rain so the landscape is still fresh and green. I hope it stays that way. Photo taken by me in a rural part of the Silesian Region two days ago.


The beautiful landscape formed by the Guadiana river (the longest in the south of the Iberian Peninsula), seen from the village of Mértola, located in the Alentejo region (Southern Portugal).

Today I bring you this shot of the romantic city of Bruges, it is a pleasure to walk through its stone alleys and enjoy its canals, get lost in its streets and discover small places to contemplate and enjoy, my wife liked it so much that we have visited her twice..



We are here at France, early the morning, along the roads which cross La Camargue. Colors were awesome this morning, enough to stop the car and spend time to enjoy this scene. This is my entry.

Located in the center of Lisbon, the Santa Justa elevator or Elevador do Carmo is one of the must-see places in the city. It is the only historic elevator and its neo-gothic style architecture contrasted with the rest of the city.


Hanging out of the window of a plane over Iceland looking at the wonderful volcanic land forms and pristine coastal environments. How incredible the colour of the water is in this barely touched land.

Neues Schloss Stuttgart

This is a shot of a castle in Baden-Wuerttembergs capitol Stuttgart and it´s called Neues Schloss (New Castle). It´s that big that it did not fit completely on the photo.

It was built between 1746 and 1807 and together with the castle square it forms the center of the city. The building has 59 Roof figures and every single one has it´s own meaning.



A sunset from last weekend, in Zambujeira do Mar, Portugal. One of my favourite places in the country to enjoy the beach... and see settings like this! Sunsets, secluded beaches and mediterranean flora are a perfect combination!


Vranov is a small village near Brno known for the Paulaners church. In the crypt of the church is a thomb of Lichtenstein family. But it is not opened for public. Instead of this you can see beautiful Nativity scene (whole year). The figures can move while carols are recorded. In neighborhood is also local brewery. I visited this place in the last day of the year 2019.

Tamar valley is one of my favorite hiking points when I am staying in Kranjska Gora. It is an easy 45 minutes hike and at the end you are rewarded with option for great meal at the cottage :)
