Cape St. Vincent

To be honest, my visit to Cape St. Vincent (or Cabo de São Vicente) is one of the most beautiful experiences in my life, and a must-see when staying in Portugal’s Algarve region. Once believed to be the ‘end of the world’, today Cape St. Vincent is a tourist attraction that many tourists don’t even know about actually. The area (where you can as well find the obsolete Franciscan monastery and a renovated light-house) is largely protected as a National Park. You will surely observe countless wildflowers (including Algarve orchids) and migrant birds. But, oh my, those views! THAT AIR! The sunsets are spectacular, but that’s quite clear. And the woollen sweaters you can buy at the entrance during the day are also worth the drive.

Sea-Side Detox

My mum and Rubi.

Frozen, winter forest. Wild beaches (the Polish sea-side is so underrated by the Poles!). Wandering off the beaten path. That’s a dreamy way of ending a year. And entering a new one! With some champagne in the historic library of Ciekocinko Palace, as well… in other words, those were immensely beautiful couple of days.

The Sudetes: Adršpach-Teplice Rocks

This is the last (and personally favourite) part of my Sudeten journal. Experiencing the famous Adršpach-Teplice Rocks was spectacular in every possible aspect, especially that at the beginning of my climb it began snowing, while minutes later the sun started to shine again. The mountainous landscape is the result of an unusual set of sandstone formations covering a part of northeastern Bohemia, Czech Republic. No words can express the beauty of this place, solely made by nature.
