Snowy Hallstatt Lake

As you might have guessed, New Year’s holidays have brought me a lot of unexpected commitments. I did not finish the advertised text about Rila National Park in time for the announced term.

You will see Lake Hallstatt Austria the way I saw it…

South Kučaj – An Unforgettable Mountain

In the east of Serbia, there is a huge forested area. Mountain Kučaj is 40 km long and almost entirely covered with rich forests of lush maple and ash. The southern part of this mountain, Southern Kučaj, is one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the whole of Serbia. Although relatively modest in height, with the highest peak of only 1,284 meters, rich in waters and with a moderate climate, this area is considered…

Nussensee, dreamy Austrian lake

Nussensee is a small Alpine lake in upper Austria. Beautiful, dreamy, almost mystical. With its modest 10 acres, it is one of the smallest lakes to visit this region. It’s almost impossible to find it on the map unless you know exactly where to look for it. How did I find it? By accident and pure luck, as usual. One of the most beautiful parts of Austria is located in the west of the country….

Although … in its long history, this house was all that. Still, in front of you is the oldest Christian church in the whole of Iceland.

Fireworks of Autumn colors

I first visited Golija, the mountain in southwestern Serbia, many years ago. I remember it as it happened today – I was reading texts and travel books on one bike tour site. Among the many offers for all the possible bike tours that you may imagine, one caught my eye in particular. The title sounded bombastic as if it were created up by some marketing specialist: “Fireworks of autumn colors!”. Here, Golija was advertised as…
