Half of the year is gone!

Hello! Please don’t be put off by the date on the left – today is July 28th, Monday! Because I have had kind of “different hectic weeks” it meant not enough time to post. Since I think this post is still VERY relevant to me, I’m recycling it again :) Hope you don’t mind and that you like it! I know we are in July, of course… But I’m still living in the first semester of the year… I confess – it was so good, I want to extend that feeling!

In June I only posted twice :( because of a trip and the World Cup. And in July only once :) Anyway, my sweet blogger-friends know exactly when I have a new post – when I comment on their blogs :) I don’t comment three times a week, but I’m a loyal reader. Despite that, I’m really interested in your posts! Do believe me!

The first half of the year is gone, the second has just started – I wanted to have track of what I have done so far and add the things I did in June, so to remember the time and the places. Here it goes!

1stsemester2014I bought many nice things, got nice presents, went to many museums – love history!, cooked quite a lot, bought new furniture, had birthday. Trips till June: England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Brazil. Continue reading

March trip – Part II

I’m so pleased to be back to the blogs I so much enjoy and now on facebook and twitter on a daily basis! As promised, here’s the second part of my Rally Holidays in March. As I said here, the pics are small, but it’s to keep track of where I’ve been, not about fashion. More about history and architecture :)

Last Monday I ended with some pictures in Gdansk, Poland. Let’s start from there again :)

Rainy Gdansk, March 16, 2p014. Roover Vistula and ship musem Soldek. A suitcase to be presentable... you need to change accessories. Scarf by Codello, bought in Zurich, umbrella Mark Jacobs

That satchel by Miss Lulu, so handy! I didn’t like the flowers so much this time, so I added some felt hearts, with felt “buttons” inside. Sorry for “blurred me”, it’s just to give an idea

After that, I went to Kaliningrad, really interesting!

I love this picture! I just wanted the Russian words in the photo and myself - when I saw it, it looks like the model is kissing the woman walking there! So funny!

Hope the post wasn’t that boring and that you liked it, places and pictures!

I’m always thrilled to read your comments and suggestions! Thanks so much for them!

Hope you have a fantastic week with many smiles!

Rediscovering Dublin

Finally back to the blogosphere and the amazing blogs I love! I had a month of a busy fun timeno internet at all 😮 Still editing the 1790 pictures taken during the “Rally Holidays” and next week I’ll show where I went. Now, I still had some pics from a month ago around Dublin. Some years ago I was in Dublin twice, but since I’ve moved to the city I’m rediscovering it – cool!
