Melbourne Diary: St. Kilda & the sunset

_cover_

The other day I went with a friend of mine to St. Kilda. It is that part of Melbourne where you feel you are far away from the big, metropolitan city and are back to the beach and relaxing atmosphere. Yes, there is a beach in Melbourne! And I can only imagine how crowded it gets here in summer. Exactly that is why I loved our visit now, during winter, when it is still cold, windy and absolutely peaceful. I do not remember ever being on the beach during winter/cold period. And it is something special! I think I even like it more than when it is burning hot with lots of people. Read More →

Melbourne Diary: CBD walk

CBD Walk

I remember, how I woke up one day in Thailand and took the decision to move to Melbourne. I remember, that I had a dream about living in this amazing city, being happy and feeling at home…I remember how, after that dream, I knew for a fact that I was going to come and settle down in Melbourne. And here I am, three weeks after my arrival here, and I do not regret a single moment of it. I love Melbourne! I love this city for its streets art, relaxed and chilled atmosphere, hipster vibe, modern cafes, beautiful parks and positive energy. Read More →

Australia: Gibb River Road Adventure

Gibb River Road_3

18 days on the road, sleeping under the stars in the middle of nowhere inside the roof-top tent of the car. 18 days of sneaking into camping sites for showers, cooking in the dark, sitting around the fire in the evening, embracing the sky full of stars, waking up at 6am to enjoy wild nature and screaming loud from the beauty around… Yes, I have done it all! Believe it or not, just less than a year ago I was standing in the top-brand luxury store, assisting people with their purchasing decision, and now, camping and sleeping in the tent with two German travel mates I had met just a day before the trip! How crazy is this?! How unpredictable life is?!

Most incredible places – my top 5

Monument Valley_new

1. Monument Valley (Utah, USA)

Magical, unbelievable, and surreal! I fell immediately in love with that place! My mind was blown away from that beauty…it just looked so unreal! When the sun went down, the colors changed from burning red to yellowish, creating a feeling of a parallel world. The shadows, created by the falling sun, were paradise for every photographer. Next morning, when the sun rose up behind the cliffs, Monument Valley suddenly had a different touch, covered in burning red colors. I’ll definitely have to go back there, for more sunsets and more sunrises. Read More →

Agung: the highest volcano in Bali

Agung Volcano in Bali

I climbed the highest volcano in Bali and 4th highest in Indonesia! It was long, tought and unbelievably cool: we spent 12 hours at the Mount Agung (from the start until the finish), slept under the sky full of stars, climbed extremely steep cliff (at some places 45 degrees) and observed incredible sunrise from the summit of 3000m. It was he most  physically difficult, but most incredible, thing I have ever done so far! When other tourists had left the summit and we stayed alone, I screamed from happiness! Read More →

Bali: secret beach escape

Bali beach

Few days ago a friend of mine showed me one absolutely amazing place here in Bali. I thought I saw it all, but this place was totally new and totally blew up my mind. One can only get there at the very low tide and stay there only during the lowest tide. It basically means, just one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening (this was the case which tide levels in June 2015). Read More →

Palawan escape: Coron and El Nido

Palawan

I have started my Philippines adventure with Palawan. And since I did not want to leave Bali and Indonesia in general, I was not planning on writing any posts about that wonderful part of Philippines. When I, however, was looking back at my pictures from Coron and El Nido, I decided to share the beauty of those places with you.  Read More →

Banaue, green side of Philippines

Banaue_1

I did not plan to go to Banaue, since I have already seen rice terraces in Bali and though ‘another rice terraces? No thank you!’ But I am so glad I did come to Banaue! Just 8-9 hours bus ride from Manila up to the north and you are in the middle of beautiful green rice terraces. My school friend came to visit me in Philippines, so we went together to explore the green part of this country. Read More →

Indonesia: 5 reasons why I felt in love with it

Bali

1. People
It is a common thing to think that people in Southeast Asia are friendly. I cannot agree more. So when I think about Indonesia, I only remember incredibly friendly people, their sincere smiles (especially those I experienced in Java), hospitality and readiness to help and show the way. Read More →
