happy girls are the prettiest

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

France and Spain

France x Spain

As the 2017 has begun, you might be strarting looking for a holiday destination for the next summer. Basically, that’s why I decided to finally upload some pictures from my ‘France x Spain’ trip.

Half a year ago, in the end of September my friends and I went on a trip across France ending in Spain, Barcelona. Surprisingly, our first stop was in Lichtenstein, which is a little country in between Switzerland, Austria and Germany. We saw a munumental, but in the same time beautiful castle of Hohenzollern, which looks exactly like as it was caught up in a Disney movie.
The very next place we visited and stopped off in was Strasbourg, le petite France as they call it that way. I liked this place to much, it really appealed to me. After that we’ve seen Clermont Ferrand with its stunning architecture with the amazing cathedral in the forefront. Then as a final stop, we stayed in Barcelona for a couple days. On the way back we’ve visited Narbonne and Avignon, which were just gorgeous in its beauty.

Italy – Elba

Elba

We came to Elba after eight years, when we first visited the island.

Meanwhile, during the time between our trips to Elba, we’ve visited quite a few places inclueding some islands such as Šolta (Croacia) and Malta. Even though we’ve seen a lot, Elba amazed us and we found it really fascinating.

The experience of rediscovering all the places we’ve visited 8 years ago was fantastic. There were a few sea spots which we loved before and found them great this time either, such as ‘Best Beach’ and the black sand beach, which’s name I still can not remember, but yes, it was literally BLACK! According to the topic of beaches, my absolute favorite was the seaside in Chiesi. Such a beautiful area with a few gelateria’s and with the unbelievably aquamarine color of water, warm stones to lie on and relax while sunbathing. Outstanding, what’s more to say. There are also some view terraces, where you can see wonderful landscapes, beautiful mountains, gorgeous sea, deep green forests and stunning red, yellow and purple stones.

Not only was it a sentimental journey, but also a giant blast of visiting such a paradise. This time we’ve spent our vacation on the west side of the island and as it turned out it was even more beautiful than the one we’d already known.

Elba, by local people is called ‘L’Isola dei Colori’ and I can’t disagree, it’s like a drop of rainbow situated on the globe. Plum and lavender colred stones, blue: from deep dark blue to very light turquise tone of sea water, green trees and mint seledine stone which is a fundament of a few mountains, yellow, what to say, sand: from white through yellow and ohra to this previously mentioned black, then orange, red and even pink, colors of all the gorgeous flowers, for instance my favorite bouganvilla and oleander.

All in one word – the actual island of color.

Three days of long beach walks, calm atmosphere and endless relaxation

Right before the vacay season, I went to the Polish seaside. With my family, we stayed in Jastrzębia Góra in a beautiful guest house. It was some kind of a luxary and elegant place, but in the same time it was really warm and very home-like People working there were so kind and so caring that I wanted to shout it out loud and recommend this place to all the travellers from around the world!
The house is called Villa Victor and it’s pretty gorgeuos. Every day, as we wrere there, my grandma, my mom and I, had this amazing routine, which was pretty much like this:
We woke up around 8 o’clock, oh okay, maybe I did get up like half an hour earlier, then, when we were all ready and dressed up, we went to the restaurant downstairs to enjoy the breakfast in this stunning room with a very beautiful sea view. Also there was a very pretty tarace, but as it was this time of the year, it was a bit chilly in the morning, mostly because of the sea breeze.
Then, we would go for a few hour long walk through the beach. That’s the thing which is pretty amazing in Poland, that the beaches are so wide, so beautifully sandy and that they are so long you can walk and walk for hours and there are still many kilometers of the wonderful seaside to walk forward.
Our trip was such a great experience which let all the stress we absorbed during the school/work year go away and when we came back we were all relaxed and full of the interior calmness.

April Celebrations

As may has begun I’d like to sum up april and all the events which took place around this month. April, as I consider it, is a month of sun, flowers and a very festive mood.
There were quite a few family meetings with lots of roses and delicious foods up there. I would like to thank you for all the wonderful moments of the month that has just passed.
Also I would like to mention a  h u g e thank you to my dear friends who organized a  birthday party for me, which was just so amazing. I was stunned and I’m sure I will never forget this day. F.r.i.e.n.d.s themed cake and gorgeus presents were absolutely fantastic. Thank you all so much one more time and I’d just like to say that I think I have the best friends I could possibly imagine or wish for.
