Nordkapp Over Again

We have already told about the journey to the North Cape, Nordkapp in Norwegian. The most northern point of continental Europe is exactly as dramatic as it sounds, but I’m afraid that we didn’t

Taking a Walk in Moscow

By | January 19th, 2017|Categories: Capital, Post cards from..., Russia, Winter|

People are divided into two groups: those, who love, and those who hate Moscow. Everything, but indifference.

Depends on what you choose to see and the way to consider everything seen. I like Moscow. But exclusively because somehow it fills me with nostalgia for that large post-soviet pain people feel every day leaning against the doors in a huge underground web. Doors with a clear demand: do not lean against the door. Even if I was born and raised in Ukraine, Moscow gives me a peculiar home longing. A painful but somehow pleasant feeling to be just another person in a huge mass of people. And this feeling is particularly reinforced in winter.

Mini Kyiv: Photo Walk

By | May 4th, 2016|Categories: Capital, Post cards from..., Ukraine|Tags: , |

Tilt Shift effect is the best way to make any place at all look cute and “aaaaawwww”. We were so curious about how it feels to get what you see in “miniature”, that we hired a tilt-shift lens and went to a photo-hunt in Kyiv. By the way, this effect can be easily made with Photoshop or similar software, but it’s much less interesting. :) Not sure, that the result was successful, it’s up to you to tell us!

Stopover in Torshavn, Faroe Islands

In the previous post we told you about our sad ferry experience… However, there was a shining positive moment: 6 hours in Torshavn. Despite horrible wind, grey sky and non-stopping seasick we were enchanted by this little town and swore to come back, but not by ferry :) So here are several shots of this windy paradise…

Venice: Photo Essay

What is the best way to explore Venice? Just take your time and get lost. As much and as long as you can, because for us 5 days were not enough. During this stay we visited nothing, no museums, no churches, nothing. The only thing we were doing was just walking. Slowly and in random direction. And that was one of our best travels ever. Ever.
