cloudy Bray

Last weekend my parents, my boyfriend and I went for a trip to Bray. It's a gorgeous town South of Dublin, with a pebble beach and great restaurants along it.

The weather was not perfect, but the sun was trying to get through the clouds.


We had a great time!

Blooming nature

It's already April and nature is blooming. All the colourful flowers and trees are the reasons for smiles on our faces - everyone is happier.
During my recent visit in the park, I photographed swans, ducks and a heron all surrounded by flowers.

Forum Romanum

Next to Colosseum we can find Forum Romanum. Again, the architecture, which is less preserved here, is still unbelievable. Some of the oldest buildings were built 8th-7th century BC and today, we are still able to visit the Forum to see how thousands of years ago, people in Ancient Rome lived.

The architecture again is impressive with great details, as well as building techniques that allowed the multiple monuments and basilicas to be preserved to this day.

Colosseum and Foutain Di Trevi

Visiting the Colosseum was one of the most incredible experiences in my life. The historical building is known from history books as well as the stories about Gladiators. Once again the architecture and building techniques are very impressive and it's great to see how well preserved the Colosseum is.

In the evening I have also visited the Fountain di Trevi. In the dark, it is breathtaking and just spectacular, particularly with the sound of flowing water which can also be heard in the nearby streets.

Vatican

The next stop on our trip was Rome. We first visited the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. 
The architecture was once again breathtaking. Every building was a piece of art and every art piece was simply spectacular, immersed with immense detail and altogether magnificent.

After the uncountable amount of steps, it still wasn't the end!


After hundreds of steps and feeling claustrophobic we made it!
As you can see it was worth it :)

Venice 2

I wanted to share some more pictures from Venice! As I said in the previous post the architecture and atmosphere in the city is what makes it uniquely attractive, making it difficult to describe you just have to experience it for yourself. It is a must do on anyone’s bucket list! :)

Sometimes it is nice to get lost in the narrow streets...

Venice

My dream came true! I've finally had the opportunity to travel to Italy. Our first stop was Venice. Beautiful but cold! Venice is full of breathtaking architecture, delicious food, colourful, vibrant, and extraordinary masks and of course its uniquely charming canals and narrow streets. I want to share few photos out of the hundreds I've taken of these colourful distinctive streets of Venice.


I hope you enjoy it and love it as much as I do! :)
