After the rainy May, June seems back to the 2018 standards: awfully hot, often over 30°C. Yet, I went for a few hikes during the first half of June – and will share something about it now (including not-so-few photos).Continue reading
Compared to the scorching heat of 2018, May 2019 was awfully wet. To the point I went for only one hike – to a place of which I have memory filled with mud. I’ve gone for another hike on 1.6., which is not May anymore, but I’ll mention it here as well, because it was similar in some aspects.Continue reading
I haven’t been writing about my hiking much in the past months. Partially because I was mostly returning to known places, partially because the weather was not that good for taking pictures – and I even forgot my camera at home one of those days.
But, the last few days changed it, at least somewhat.Continue reading
It’s been several years since I last visited a ZOO. Back then, I’ve decided the next time I do it, it’ll be in winter to have a bit different perspective. That single condition alone made it a wait of several years, though I was in no rush for that.Continue reading
Spring might be some time away but I am already thinking of places I’ll want to visit once the snow is gone and the landscape starts blooming. So, as a break between writing-related posts, I’m showing my 5 favorite photos of flowers made in 2018. If you’re in some cold-gripped area while reading this, let’s hope it’ll warm you up.Continue reading
Since it’s winter, in today’s post, I’ll make a short look back at some winter-themed photos I took in 2018 (and the first week of 2019).Continue reading
With the year coming to a close, I am doing a “best of” highlight of this year’s hiking.
I’ll tell it straight away: November, for the vast majority of years, sucks for hiking. Bordering between the colorful days of October and the winter, it’s usually a poor mess. Even if there’s some color remaining, it’s gloomier than in October. And it usually rains way more. The second half then turns into waiting for the first snow and hoping for a decent timing.
Continuing the way I did it in September, this post will be a summary of my October travels with several photos.
This post will cover the four-day stay in Slovakia from the end of the month, with a lot of photos.
Going into mountains reaching 1600-2100m ASL in late September is tricky. Weather can go full summer or full winter on you. In my case, it did both. I was prepared for the cold part but less so for the warm part – my summer gear was already deep in the closet and I took thicker socks.
