Treasure hunt

Yes, that's how I call it when I'm on the move. Just me, curiosity and my camera.

The 'Beauty is where you find it' photo project theme of month May was: 'On the move'. An easy one, as I always feel 'on the move' when I'm on the way to unknown or known places with my camera. My camera makes me move!

And it always feels like I'm on a treasure hunt - not really sure what will I find, but it's always something precious, something to fill my heart with.

The colors of newly discovered jewel made me go click-click-click. So pure, so calm, so special! Walking around the lake was like a meditation, observing the colors was like watching the best movie ever, listening to the songs of various birds was like listening to the best concert in my entire life! Only Nature can be such a brilliant creator! Only Nature is full of surprises!

So, go, move, hunt for your big or small treasures! Focus on what makes you happy, inspired, eager to learn more. There's a treasure for everyone out there!

Great escapes

The theme of photoproject 'Beauty is where you find it' (#BIWYFI) in February was: Escape daily routine.

I should first admit that my biggest escape happened on that day, when I packed my bags and escaped to Austria. Many holidays that I’ve spent over the years in Austria leaded me to the place, where I said: I want to live here. And here I am.

When you find your place under the Sun, which means everything to you, it is not hard to find also the ‘thing’ that pulls you away from the daily routine.

My (great) escapes out of daily routine, away from loud kids, away from action, alarming state…, are to be found in nature. Between the mountains and the lake. Here I feel safe, here I feel wonderful. 

Every day nature shows a new face, that inspires me. Every day I’m looking forward to my little great escapes. Every day I’m thankful for every moment I spent here, where my heart sings. And this year, February was unbelievably giving, unforgettable!

I really hope that your escapes from daily routine are inspiring, refreshing and unforgettable too. And if not (yet), listen to the whispers inside you, pack your ‘bags’ and take the time off. You won’t regret it!

Climbing

Climbing is always rewarding.

First you start your journey from a soft, safe place, protected by a fence.

Then, challenges get bigger - more climbing to do, more rocks on the way...

You have to cross high and long bridges across wild waters.

But there's always something good waiting for you there, too, to make your path a bit easier.

After a long, difficult and sometimes scary climbing, right there on the top (when you almost gave up), something beautiful is waiting for you.

It is magical, it makes you feel free and happy, and you are proud of yourself that you didn't give up.

Keep on climbing, my friends! Many paths are waiting for you every day!

PS:

These are my pictures from Austria. As you can see, this is my dream destination, because not only I enjoy my days there, I'm also learning from it for life, and that's why it holds a special place in my heart... The fascinating cable bridge is 46 m long and 35 m high above a deep gorge.
