I've got the travel bug

 London, the United Kingdom

DSC_0354 DSC_0469 DSC_0426 DSC_0396DSC_0366 DSC_0488 Londoon again! This time I went to visit my sister in Brighton and take her home after her exchange stay (well help her with the luggage :). Of course we couldn't leave without a visit of the capital, our beloved city! In May and June when Queen's birthday is celebrated, London is so beautiful!

Londýn opäť! Tentokrát som išla navštíviť moju sestru v Brightone a pomôcť jej presunúť sa s kuframi domov po tom, čo tam strávila semester na výmennom pobyte :)
Samozrejme sme si nenechali ujsť ani návštevu nášho milovaného Londýna. V máji a v júni, keď sa oslavujú narodeniny kráľovnej, je tam tak nádherne!

We have nothing to lose and a world to see

Helsinki, Finland

Winters in Slovakia can get really cold, but what we experienced in Helsinki, the the capital and largest city of Finland, was much more that. It was freezing so too many layers of clothing were needed haha! People were very kind and welcoming and what we loved were the offerings in cafeterias and restaurants which included gluten-free, lactose-free or vegetarian options, what only added on the fact that Helsinki truly is a great modern city worth visiting! :)

Zimy na Slovensku vedia byť veľmi chladné, ale zima, ktorú sme zažili v Helsinkách, hlavnom a najväčšom meste Fínska, je o niečom inom. Potrebovali sme naozaj veľa vrstiev obliečenia :)
Ľudia vo Fínsku sú strašne milí a čo sa nám veľmi páčilo boli ponuky v kaviarniach a reštauráciach, ktoré zahŕňali bezlepkové, bezlaktózové a vegetariánske možnosti. Aj to potvrdilo že Helsinki sú moderným mestom hodným návštevy. :)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

 Copenhagen, Denmark

IMG_0142_2 IMG_0127 IMG_0049_2 IMG_0020 DSC_1404 IMG_0078 DSC_1102We started this winter season in Copenhagen. What a charming city it is! Sparkling Christmas lights, numerous Christmas markets and festive atmosphere got us precociously in the spirit for the holiday season. If you happen to visit the capital of Denmark, don't forget to go to Tivoli amusement park, the second oldest theme park in the world which is now transformed into a winter wonderland offering wide array of Danish treats and shops full of gifts and Christmas items. Copenhagen truly is a genuine Christmas city!

Túto zimnú sezónu sme začali v Kodani. Milióny žiarivých svetielok, vianočné trhy na každom kroku a sviatočná atmosféra v nás už predčasne prebudili ducha Vianoc. Ak navštívite Kodaň, určite nevynechajte Tivoli zábavný park, ktorý je druhý najstarší na svete a v zime sa mení na winter wonderland a ponúka mnoho dánskych maškŕt a obchodíkov s vianočným sortimentom. Kodaň je naozajstné vianočné mesto!

Girl's beauty is in her eyes

Green Ribbon Party/Ribbon Ball/ Stužková in Slovakia is a bit different from prom that I had experienced in the US. The main goal is however the same and it's that students of one class gather and prepare an unforgettable night in their last year of high school. Night about remembering the old times, having fun and enjoying time spent together.
"Prom" in Slovakia is a fancy celebration organized by students who invite their teachers and parents. Festive dinner, hundreds of cakes, decorations and flowers may evoke a small wedding haha :)
During the formal part each student receives a green ribbon with his name as a symbol of youth and hope that should help pass "the exam of maturity" or school leaving exam called Maturita in May.
Afterwards, there is a funny program prepared and dancing all night until early hours of the next morning.
How does prom work in your country? :)
**
Noc plná emócií, smútku aj radosti. Aj taká je stužková. Ale je to hlavne nezabudnuteľná noc plná úžasných zážitkov, pretancovaných kilometrov a skvelej spoločnosti. Tí, ktorí ste ju už mali, viete o čom hovorím. Vy, ktorých vás ešte len čaká, si ju užite naplno, pretože táto možnosť je len raz za život. :)

Ok, but first coffee

 Fuerteventura, Spain

Fuerteventura Oasis Park is a beautiful tropical theme park with over 3,000 exotic animals and definitely one of the top spots for everyone visiting the island. This tropical vegetation oasis features the largest camel reserve in Europe. The welfare of the animals is priority of all the biologists, veterinarians and general staff that obviously love them and so the animals look really happy there.
The biggest attraction was hand feeding giraffes, zebras and African elephants. Guaranteed fun for everyone!

Fuerteventura Oasis Park je nádherný tropický park s viac ako 3 000 exotickými zvieratkami a určite jedno z najvyhľadávanejších miest na ostrove. Blaho zvierat je prioritou všetkých zamestnancov, ktoré sa im zato odvďačujú láskavým pohľadom a spokojnosťou. 
Najväčšou atrakciou je kŕmenie žiráf, zebier, či afrických slonov. Krásny zážitok a super zábava pre každého!
