CLIFF JUMPING

This past weekend, we had a pretty great time hopping around the Croatian island of Krk.

The hot spot of this trip were some cliffs just at the doorstep of our camping site where we spent a great amount of time. You can see how much fun we had in the photos below!

The only way to get there is to climb.

I will definitely be doing a video about the whole trip but until then here is a little teaser:

I love spending time in Croatia each summer since it is pretty close to Slovenia and their sea is way cleaner than ours!

EXPLORE: GRAN CANARIA

At the end of July, my boyfriend and I finally packed for our much anticipated vacation to the island of Gran Canaria, which is one of the biggest of the 12 islands of the Canaries.

Somewhere above Italy.

After flying from Bergamo, Italy to the Gran Canaria airport, we took a bus that brought us to the northern city of Las Palmas where we stayed in an apartment located right on the beautiful Playa de Las Canteras.

Since the apartment we stayed in was part of a surf school/shop with incredibly friendly and cool people, we couldn’t miss trying surfing and bodyboarding for the first time. We took a surfing class and spent the next two hours in the ocean enjoying ourselves until complete exhaustion. I have to say that surfing must be one of the most exciting, fun, exhausting and rewarding sports. It is also true what our French teacher told us, “Once you get the hang of it, surfing gets pretty addictive”.

A few days after surfing. we decided to rent bodyboards and have some more fun hours in the waves. As it turns out, bodyboarding is much easier then surfing since you don’t actually have to stand on the board to ride a wave.

The rest of the vacation was spent exploring the city of Las Palmas with a population of almost 400,000. Renting bikes turned out to be a great idea that enabled us to visit the old part of the town called Vegueta with its famous Cathedral of Santa Ana, as well as La Isleta and other parts of the city.

Despite many skate parks, locals still enjoy skating cultural monuments

One day we decided to take the bus and visit the southern town of Maspalomas to see the famous dunes. They were quite mesmerizing but we didn’t opt to explore them in great detail since the sand was way to hot to walk on even with our flip flops on.

Much to our disappointment, the whole town of Maspalomas turned out to be a touristy compartment of hotels, apartments and way too expensive shops. Needles to say, we were quite happy to ride the bus home to the much nicer Las Palmas.

Some words that sum up our Gran Canaria adventure are: fun waves, long and sandy beaches, friendly locals, cool city vibes, constant ocean breeze (which is why it is a good idea to bring an extra long sleeve shirt), amazing sunsets and a chilled beach lifestyle.

Adios, until next time!

We have definitely loved it here and it might not pass too much time until we decide to come back and explore yet another island of the Canaries.

THE INMUSIC FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE

At the end of June, the 9th INmusic festival was held on lake Jarun in Zagreb, Croatia. This year’s festival could be summarized in these few words: good music, great vibes, wonderful location, packed camping grounds and, unfortunately, a lot of rain.

Nevertheless, the whole experience was absolutely marvellous. We stayed in the camping area, which was packed with a myriad of people, swam in the lovely lake, took a trip to the city centre of Zagreb (since, with the camping wristband, public transport was free) and listened to a diverse line-up of musicians.

Flogging Molly and The Fratellis were definitely my favourite. Beside them, other participants included The Black Keys, MGMT, Pixies, Foals, Crystal Fighters, Bombay Bicycle Club and many others.

SPRING TIME IN LJUBLJANA

Since I haven’t posted in a while (I am super busy studying for exams), I decided to publish a short “photo” post with a bunch of photos taken during the month of May in Ljubljana.

Majske igre

Every year there is a two-week event called the Games of May
where the Slovenian Student Association organizes concerts and sports competitions. This photo was taken at the “Market of ŠKIS” where you can get all kinds of free food and beverage as well as listen to various bands performing from 12pm till 1am. It has become quite a tradition for students of the Universitiy of Ljubljana to attend this event.

This picture pretty much sums up the weather we had so far: an unpredictable mixture of sunshine and rain.

Even though I am in the middle of the exam season, I have managed to squeeze in a day-off  in order to go to Milano to attend a concert of Linkin Park ( I honestly couldn’t let it slip through my fingers).

Since I will be going to the InMusic festival at the end of June, you can expect quite a few exciting blog posts in the near future. Until then, take care,

FAVOURITE VIDEOS

Since I spend quite a big amount of time watching videos on youtube and vimeo, no wonder I have come to accumulate a loong list of favourite ones. However, there are some which stand out from the rest. That is why I decided to write this blog post and share them with you hoping that you might find them as mesmerizing as I do. For the sake of narrowing them down, I split them into categories.

Now all that is left to do is to make yourself comfortable and enjoy!

Skiing trip to Zoncolan

 

 

 

 

 

This February we decided to go on a long-awaited trip to the Italian ski resort Zoncolan. The weather was splendid with blue skies and tons of
snow. And when I say tons, I mean literally. It has been snowing for a solid month and there were four meters of snow all around us which could only mean one thing: a super fun day!

We skied untill complete exhaustion and, at the end, we all agreed that it was a perfect way to end this year`s skiing season.
