Summer weekends, this year, were dedicated to a few day trips we could take from Skopje. After the one to Kokino, we decided to go to a place none of us have visited before- the city of Kratovo and the nearby village of Kuklica.
Being cooped up indoors has been (almost) no fun at all, but it's the least we can do for a while, I guess. So this summer I decided to visit a few outdoor places in my country which would not have made my "to visit" list, if there was no pandemic.
Last year we went on a day trip to Mavrovo to enjoy the fresh air, amazing autumn scenery and lovely food at least for a day. The snow wasn't on the ground, so the autumn leaves were in full bloom, and it was spectacular to witness. I'm not a specially gifted landscape photographer, but here it's really difficult to miss a shot.
The summer has already finished, and I still haven't finished writing about my vacation (dropped the ball on that one, didn't I?). However, since it's a city escape, and the city at hand is Vienna, summer does not have to be the only season to visit it.
I wanted to dedicate the second part of the Bratislava photo blog to the modernist and socialist modernist architecture and sights of the city. Which were plenty!

However, the time came to write about my last trip, and the first destination was the city of Bratislava, Slovakia. This was my first time in Slovakia completely, so... Continue Reading →
As the spring holidays rolled in a group of friends and I had a few days off work, and we wanted to make the best of them. But, the weather wasn't very nice, and a few of us had some health issues so instead of going some place exotic (out of city bounds), we decided... Continue Reading →
Around December, when I finally got the time to edit my photographs from Rome, I realized that I had taken a lot of street portraits of people looking at their phones. Sure, they may have been tourists looking for directions, but my first thought was that nowadays we always look at our phones hoping to... Continue Reading →
My favourite trips are city escapes. But sometimes it may become too much to look at buildings and monuments the whole time while on a trip, so I've found that botanical gardens or zoos are a great way to make a city escape holiday more diverse. Botanical gardens are also a great way to spend... Continue Reading →
The story about Little Red Riding Hood can be traced back as early as the 10th century, but the most famous variations on the topic have been written by Charles Perrault and the Grimm Brothers. In case you haven't heard it, it's about a little girl that wears a red coat with a red hood... Continue Reading →
