I feel like these cold November days exist for finishing and summarizing photos and memories. So I went through some of those everyday adventures captured with my phone, thinking again about time on the road or the places I spend my ordinary days at. More photos from...

Postcards from Gdansk, part II.

Postcards from Gdansk, part II.

The last seagulls flying above the storm following the waves: the crowded seaside is transforming. A distant feel of Scandinavia and its stillness in our mind. Many stories to follow: two quiet fishermen, a silently waiting old boat, people singing in the hidden...

The handmade book

The handmade book

There was some leather and paper in the beginning... Creating this completely handmade book was not easy, but definitely worth it. I spent a lot of time on every detail and learned the most about the process thanks to my crafty friends. As any first attempt, this one...

Through the Balkans – the sun

Through the Balkans – the sun

To wake up by the side of the road, to open the map and start a journey just day by day, with no idea what will happen or where will you end up: maybe in a strangers house who turns to our host, maybe in the middle of a dark field or city? Driving 5000 kilometers in...

Through the Balkans – the cities

From the suspensive atmosphere of Kosovian Mitrovica to the majestic squares of Skopje, between eastern and western culture in Sarajevo, following the feel of special and bizarre places. From morning teas in old bazaars to the hidden corners of flea markets, cities...

Through the Balkans – the fog

I write this in many places. In my head, I'm in a small Croatian village, walking in the cold rain and trying to find someone who can help us to repair our van, then lost in the Bosnian fog, sitting in the most authentic small pub and drinking hot tea. I'm meeting the...

Through the Balkans – the rain

And so we decided to go again. Not to run away from all, but to run to it before it changes and fade. To see the unexpected and to know about the world more. Starting in Slovakia, we made a van our home, we followed the rain and the cold of autumn to reach the sea one...

A tribute to Spomeniks

A tribute to Spomeniks

Across countries, getting lost in small villages and forgotten hills, in the footsteps of the captivating witnesses of time. Giant sculptures commemorating battles and the (not so distant) past, still beautiful and evocative. The Yugoslavian war memorials are trying...

Swiss postcards, part II.

Swiss postcards, part II.

Zürich. Busy people breathing with the city, bicycles and words everywhere. Baden. Green fields with cows, blue sky dotted with silky clouds. Long hours on the road that leads through small streets with lovely houses arranged in a perfect harmony, a farm with horses...

From city to city: Thessaloniki and Belgrade

From city to city: Thessaloniki and Belgrade

Morning swims, evening Ouzos, sunset climbs to an abandoned factory, night chats near the seaside with olives and wine. Crowded streets, homeless dogs, to get lost and surrender to the kindness of all the people we meet on our way. To dive in the warm sea searching...

Across fields and forests

Across fields and forests

Blazing sun, the first hill. Just we four and the country around. Walking for hours and hours in the old footsteps found, getting lost following the sunset. To eat, drink, laugh under the bright stars and hear every small noise of the nature. To wake up with the sun...
