Kenwood House, Hampstead, London

Life & blog update:February 2019

Children’s Carnival Parade in Rijeka, Croatia

Life and blog update February 2019..And just like that another month has passed by. We spent most of the month at my husband’s parents because we had our bathroom completely renovated. It reminds me of a contemporary hotel bathroom now because we’ve put in a walk-in shower 🙂

Since we could leave our boy at the grandparent’s we had a pizza date night for Valentine’s Day, met up with some friends twice and we went to the cinema one weekend too.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Dreamy.…such a powerful word that conjures so many images to me. Images of seaside holidays, old castles, my beautiful son, my cat when he sleeps in the sun, my favourite chocolate and London. To me London has always been dreamy. But I chose this photo from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England as my answer to this Friendly Friday Photo Challenge:Dreamy. Why ? Because it’s just dreamy, isn’t it?  And because it reminds me of the time of my life when I was full of dreams….

My dear friend from the Snow Melts Somwhere blog has launched a new weekly photo challenge Friendly Friday a few weeks ago. She’s hosting it with another great blogger from Something to ponder about blog. Every Friday one of them gives a prompt and this Friday the prompt was Dreamy. This photo is my answer to Snow’s prompt dreamy.

What does dreamy mean to you?

Sunday Photo: Karlštejn Castle

Karlštejn Castle, Czech Republic, 2010

 

I’ve visited Prague twice. On one of those trips we went to this beautiful castle too. It’s a great day trip since it’s less than 50km away from Prague. Do you like visiting castles and learning about their history?

Life & blog update: January 2019

Lucca, Italy

Lucca in Italy, I’ll blog about it eventually

Life and blog update January 2019..Yes, It’s already 2019! I was in Tuscany for New Year’s but I probably won’t blog about it because that was a work trip and because there are already several Tuscany blog posts here on my blog (you can check posts about Florence here and here and about Pisa here if you want). If I look back at January actually nothing much has happened except from…. well, you’ll find all about it later on;)

My husband went on his skiing trip with his mates to Austria and my baby boy toddler and I had wild parties! Just kidding! My boy has grown so much recently. Probably, because he’s eating all the time! He seems to have an appetite of a wolf or a bear but he’s running everywhere all the time so he definitely spends all those calories. He likes playing with his Lego duplo toys too. Recently, my boy spent the night at his grandparent’s. And he was fine!

Sunday Photo: Venice

Venice

Venice, Italy, 2006

 

Honestly, I’m not sure how many times I’ve visited Venice/ Venezia.  I went to Venice to explore its streets and attractions but I’ve also just used it as a starting point for longer journeys by plane and by boat. This photo was taken from a boat that I took from Venice to Greece in 2006. That was an epic adventure.

Review: Galen Leather Notebook Cover

Handmade Leather Moleskine Journal Notebook Cover by Galen Leather

Handmade Leather Moleskine Journal Notebook Cover by Galen Leather

What’s the one thing that you always take on your travels? For me, that’s a small notebook or a notepad to jot down my travel adventures while I’m away. Then when I get back home I transfer those notes into entries in my travel diary. Well, at least that’s what I did before I started blogging. Now, I just blog about my travels but I still carry my travel notepad so I don’t forget the most important sights and sounds of a place I’m visiting. After all, I’m an old-fashioned girl woman at heart. Of course, the really essential item for your travels is your passport. Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could keep your passport and your travel notebook in one place? Perhaps you could even put your phone in the same stylish leather cover? I love handmade leather goods so I was delighted when Galen Leather got in touch with me for a review of one of their products.

Galen Leather is a company that specializes in handmade leather travel goods. They make leather notebook covers, pen cases, passport wallets, stationery, luggage tags, iPad portfolios and many other items. Galen Leather is a family run business based in Turkey.

I chose Handmade Leather Moleskine Journal Notebook Cover in red colour for the purpose of this review. It arrived beautifully packaged in a brown gift/storage box. As a surprise together with my red notebook cover there were a few extra items. I received a small evil eye talisman (Turkish lucky charm ), red leather keychain, a small package of Turkish coffee and a Turkish tea bag. How nice! There was also a note about the company and a 10% discount coupon.
