Barcelona: CHIQUITA IN LA RAMBLA (3)

Promised myself not to rush that afternoon, but to take nice stroll down Barcelona's La Rambla Street. Charming pedestrian path that connects Placa de Catalunya to Christopher Columbus Monument at Port Vell. Recognized all those Barcelona landmarks from photos I have seen before I came here – flowers stand on one side, on the other … Continue reading Barcelona: CHIQUITA IN LA RAMBLA (3)

Barselona: „ČIKITA“ U LA RAMBLI (3)

Obećala sam sebi da ovog popodneva neću žuriti, već da ću se „častiti“ laganom šetnjom niz poznatu ulicu La Rambla, šarmantno šetalište koje povezuje Trg Katalonije sa spomenikom Kristoferu Kolumbu u Port Vell-u, na obali. Čini mi se da sam prepoznala sve one fotografije koje sam videla iz La Ramble – s jedne strane štandovi … Continue reading Barselona: „ČIKITA“ U LA RAMBLI (3)

Barcelona: FACING THE DRAGON IN PARK GUELL (2)

My first day in Barcelona! Took a long breath and glanced through the window, rushed down for breakfast, then back up to my room to take the camera and the book I bought the night before. Gaudi, here I come! Took the bus that was going up and up… "I have really considered going on … Continue reading Barcelona: FACING THE DRAGON IN PARK GUELL (2)

Barselona: LICEM U LICE SA ZMAJEM (2)

Prvi dan u Barseloni! Otvorila sam prozor da udahnem ovog katalonskog vazduha, požurila na doručak, pa nazad da uzmem fotoaparat i knjigu koju sam kupila prethodne večeri. Antoni Gaudi, evo me, stižem! Ušla sam u autobus, koji je išao uzbrdo, i uzbrdo... „Kad samo pomislim da mi je padalo na pamet da idem peške do … Continue reading Barselona: LICEM U LICE SA ZMAJEM (2)

Barcelona: DRAGGING SMALL SUITCASE UPWARDS (1)

When traveling to European countries, I often go as I would if strolling the streets of my own home town, since nothing is that far, the flights are not long, don’t have to carry a lot of luggage etc. (That is the advantage of living in Serbia – it will take you somewhat more then … Continue reading Barcelona: DRAGGING SMALL SUITCASE UPWARDS (1)

Barselona: KAD VUČETE KOFER UZBRDO (1)

Kad putujem po Evropi obično krenem kao što bih i da sam izašla da prošetam po Beogradu, jer ništa zapravo nije daleko, let nikad nije dugačak, ne treba da nosim mnogo prtljaga. (Ovo je u stvari prednost nas koji živimo u Srbiji – treba ti nešto više od dva i po sata da avionom stigneš … Continue reading Barselona: KAD VUČETE KOFER UZBRDO (1)

Have a cup of tea and enjoy reading about the journey, since we'll be hopping from one side of the Old Continent (where we were during the last series), to the opposite one! Barcelona and Lisbon, here we come! To tell you the truth, wasn’t sure how to write the Barcelona/Lisbon trip experiences of mine, … Continue reading Hopping to the other side of EUROPE!

Kapadokija: GURANJE OKO BALONA (17)

Jedna od popularnih atrakcija u Kapadokiji svakako je vožnja balonom iznad ovog magičnog pejzaža. Dobijete nezaboravan pogled na čitavu oblast. Poleće se u zoru, tako da ste hipnotisani prelepim prizorima ispod vas  – „dimnjaci“, voćnjaci i vinogradi, i to dok izlazi sunce. Standardni letovi traju oko sat vremena i nude „švedski sto“ za doručak i … Continue reading Kapadokija: GURANJE OKO BALONA (17)

Cappadocia: LOVE VALLEY AND SAINT SIMEON’S ROOM (16)

The area of Pasabag or Pasabaglari, popularly known as the Love Valley, hosts the most beautiful chimneys which can reach up to 15 to 20 meters in heights. They often come multi-coned and you can see two or three of them coalesced into one formation. The valley is 4 kilometers long.

Kapadokija: DOLINA LJUBAVI I SOBA SVETOG SIMEONA (16)

Oblast Pašabaglari ili Dolina ljubavi ima možda najlepše primerke "vilinskih dimnjaka". Visine su od 15 do 20 metara, a često su i grupisani, pa se mogu videti po dva-tri šiljka koji su kao "srasli". Dolina ljubavi dugačka je oko četiri kilometra. Soba Svetog Simeona U jednom od "dimnjaka" nalazi se prostorija, koju je u petom … Continue reading Kapadokija: DOLINA LJUBAVI I SOBA SVETOG SIMEONA (16)

Cappadocia: CARRYING RUG HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD (15)

The town of Avanos had another craft it was famous for and it’s well worth a visit. We were told it was possible to tour round one of the carpet weaving stores, the so called carpet factory. Every time you travel to the Orient you will be offered to buy a carpet, „hand-weaved in large … Continue reading Cappadocia: CARRYING RUG HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD (15)

Kapadokija: KAD VUČETE ĆILIM PREKO POLA SVETA (15)

U Avanosu postoji još jedan zanat, koji je ovaj grad proslavio i zbog koga ga vredi posetiti. Rečeno nam je da je moguće ući u jednu od radnji, koja ručno proizvodi tepihe. Istini za volju, svaki put kad se uputite na Orijent nude vam da kupite tepihe „ručno tkane u svim bojama“, i uvek „kao … Continue reading Kapadokija: KAD VUČETE ĆILIM PREKO POLA SVETA (15)

Cappadocia: FORERUNNER OF A MODERN BUILDING (14)

Cappadocia is truly hard to describe. Luckily, there are cameras, because every attempt to describe those small houses – which they actually are not, and which are build by hewing much needed premises into mountain – would be a certain venture. Low ceilings, few rooms separated by pillars and all you can see from outside … Continue reading Cappadocia: FORERUNNER OF A MODERN BUILDING (14)

Kapadokija: PRETEČA MODERNIH VIŠESPRATNICA (14)

Kapadokiju je zaista teško opisati. Srećom, postoje fotoaparati, jer kako opisati kućice, koje to nisu, a koje su u stvari napravljene tako što je stanovništvo klesalo stene ka unutra i tako izrađivalo prostorije po potrebi. Niske tavanice, nekoliko sobica izdeljenih stubićima, a spolja samo otvor, rupa! Neke od ovakvih ulaza krase i ornamenti, uglavnom simboli … Continue reading Kapadokija: PRETEČA MODERNIH VIŠESPRATNICA (14)
