• Wedding in Portovenere – Photo Diary

    The main reason and highlight of our Italy trip was the wedding of my brother, Zsolt, and my since-then-sister-in-law, Zsóka. During one of their previous trips they both fell in love with Portovenere so much, that they decided to have their big day and say yes (or maybe “si”?) here. As an addition to the official photographer’s work I also spent some time taking a few pictures in the background and I decided to share my favourite ones on the blog. Olaszországi utunk legfőbb oka és egyben fénypontja bátyám, Zsolt, és azóta-sógornőm, Zsóka esküvője volt. Egy előző nyaralásuk során tetszett meg mindkettőjüknek Portovenere annyira, hogy végül úgy döntöttek, ide szervezik a…

  • Naples

    Naples

    Naples… the city, that everyone tried to discourage us from visiting by saying things like the buildings are in ruins, there is rubbish everywhere, it is controlled by the mafia and if you go there, you’ll be robbed, kidnapped, sliced up, etc. The downpour of discouragements was so successful, that we ended up spending only about three hours there while we were waiting for our train connection. Naples… the city, which ended up being one of highlights of our Italy trip. We liked it so much, that we had already decided we wish to return in the near future and explore it more thoroughly. Nápoly… a város, amitől mindenki csak elrettenteni…

    25 Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, and despite the fact that it’s not very big, it certainly offers an unlimited amount of things to explore. I’ve put together a list of 25 items, some of which are the well-known, touristy sights, others are a bit off the beaten path and you can easily miss them if you don’t pay attention, and finally a few which we haven’t had a chance to check out because of several different reasons. I’ve also included a place that I don’t actually recommend to people, even though it’s quite well-known. Let’s see what are these! Kuala Lumpur Malajzia fővárosa, és annak ellenére hogy nem túlságosan nagy,…

  • Saint Anne Lake

    Wayfaring in Transylvania: The Land of Volcanoes

    The last time my parents and I visited the Saint Anne Lake and the Mohos bog was when I was a teenager. It was such an unforgettable experience, that I couldn’t wait to return to this magical Land of Volcanoes and show Will how does an almost perfectly round crater lake surrounded by a pine forest and often visited by bears look like. Actually, there are two lakes, but the second one is almost completely covered by peat. Azt hiszem talán iskolás lehettem még, mikor szüleimmel a Szent Anna tónál és a Mohos tőzeglápnál jártunk. Hatalmas élmény volt az a kirándulás, így aztán nagyon lelkesen vártam, hogy újra visszatérjünk a Vulkánok…

    Wayfaring in Transylvania: Nyergestető Memorial Park

    On a foggy almost-summer morning of our Transylvanian road trip we decided to visit the Nyergestető Memorial Park. Our main destinations on that day were the Saint Anne Lake and the Mohos Bog, but popping by the memorial park didn’t seem to be big detour. Erdélyi kirándulásunk egy ködös, majdnem-nyári reggelén úgy döntöttünk, hogy ellátogatunk a Nyergestetőre. Aznapra egyébként a Szent Anna tó meg a Mohos tőzegláp volt betervezve, de nem jelentett túl nagy kitérőt ide is elugrani.

  • Korond Pottery

    Korond Pottery – The Workshop of Ilyés Vészti Mihály

    When I travelled home back in May, Will joined me. Usually, when the weather is good and it gets nice and warm, my parents and I don’t stay in Cluj, but we take the car and visit a chosen region of Transylvania instead. It wasn’t any different this time either, however the fact that Will had never been in Transylvania before and everything was new for him, made our trip a bit more interesting. Thanks to this, we looked at everything we consider ‘usual’ and ‘home’ from a slightly different perspective. Mikor idén májusban hazautaztam, Will is velem tartott. Általában ha jó az idő meg meleg van, szüleimmel nem szoktunk…

  • Canterbury Cathedral

    Exploring Canterbury

    Let’s jump back in time till march this year. It was a beautiful, mainly sunny spring weekend, when Will and I decided to visit Canterbury. We heard a lot about the importance of this place from both historical and religious point of view (Canterbury Cathedral, Archbishop of Canterbury), but neither of us had been here before. This is why it was about time to pay a visit. Ugroljunk vissza egy kicsit az időben, mondjuk márciusig. Egy szép, többnyire napsütéses hétvégén úgy döntöttünk Willel, hogy ellátogatunk Canterburybe. Mivel sokszor hallottunk már erről a helyről mindenféle történelmi és vallási vonatkozásban – canterburyi apátság, canterburyi érsek, stb. – viszont még egyikünk sem járt…

  • Westonbirt Arboretum

    Autumn Special: The Thousand Colours of Westonbirt Arboretum

    Every time autumn starts to kick in and the trees become colourful I instantly feel the urge to go out and take some photos. OK, this isn’t completely true. I am constantly suffering because of this shooting urge, which makes me fall behind with the post-processing work. But I can’t help it: I’d much rather explore the outside world than spend hours sitting next to Photoshop. Valahányszor eljön az ősz, és színesek lesznek a falevelek, az ember lányának azonnal fotózhatnékja támad. Najó, ez így túlzás. Az ember lányának állandóan fotózhatnékja van, és emiatt torlódik föl a rengeteg utómunka, mivel szívesebben mászkál odakint, ahelyett hogy a Photoshop mellett gubbasztana.

    Winter City Break in Copenhagen – Day 4

    The following morning we decided to quickly go and check out the famous Tuborgflasken before we end up finding a place for a long and relaxing brunch. This giant, 26 meter tall beer bottle is in Hellerup, which is a suburb located to the north of central Copenhagen. Másnap reggel úgy döntöttünk, hogy még táplálékszerzés előtt elbuszozunk Koppenhága Hellerup nevű negyedébe, ami a belvárostól északra helyezkedik el, és jól megnézzük magunknak a 26 méter magas Tuborgflaskent, azaz a Tuborg sörösüveget.

  • Winter City Break in Copenhagen – Day 3

    The following day started off a little bit hazy. And not just because of our late-night drinks, but also because of the much more wintry weather… A másnap nagyon ködösen indult. És nem csak az előző esti iszogatás miatt, hanem mert közben az időjárás is téliesebbre fordult…
