A story by the Danube river…
… During their winter promenade by the Danube river, something unexpected got their attention from the other side of the river, so they moved closer to the river bank. The father, as an adult with more experience and knowledge is trying to give an explanation to his little one, who listens carefully to his story.
After a long pause, they continued staring at the the river and slowly both of them immersed in their own thoughts!
This quiet and beautiful moment though did not last for long, because they were interrupted by the other members of the family.

Walking alongside the banks of the Danube river in Bratislava, we approached the New Bridge with the UFO tower. This bridge has always fascinated me and no matter how many times I pass by, it draws me in. I find myself taking its pictures every time, and each time it’s from different vantage point.

Twigift is a cute little shop located in the heart of old town Bratislava, with handmade creations and unique art pieces. You can find anything your heart desires from an array of interesting things that are made out of wood, yarn, metal, clay, textile, glass etc. The warm ambiance and the friendly personnel makes you feel welcome and cozy.
I loved spending time in this shop during my stay there. It was, undoubtedly, one of my favorite shops.
If you ever visit Bratislava make sure to stop by. I’m sure you will be as captivated by it as I was.

A magical view of the castle of Bratislava enlighten on the hill. The lights of the city give a different look to the Danube river which is beautifully colored from the reflections of the lights.

If you want to rest for a while, you will never feel lonely sitting on this bench. You may enjoy the company of this adorable couple!
On a cloudy winter day, we were wandering in the alleys of old town Bratislava and we ended up on the top of the hill where the castle of Bratislava is located. As we didn’t have enough time to tour the inside of the castle, we settled with just walking around it and taking in the breathtaking view of the Old town, the New Bridge – which crosses the banks of the Danube River – and the UFO tower, on the bridge’s pylon.
Everything looks different when you are atop!

Taking the trolleybus no. 203 to its final destination, on a sunny winter day, we ended up in Koliba. It is a popular locality that belongs to the Bratislava Forest Park which is located in the foothills of the Little Carpathians in the northern part of Bratislava.
Bratislava Forest Park is a very popular place for the locals. There are a lot of recreational facilities such as hiking, running and biking trails, sports facilities, playgrounds, snack kiosks etc.
While we were walking and enjoying the nature that the hiking trail had to offer, I noticed the sun-rays penetrating into the forest through the leafless trees creating interesting shadows on the ground. I was fascinated by the variety of forms the shadows were creating that I couldn’t resist and found myself in the peculiar and fun position of ‘chasing’ shadows.
It was such a relaxing and joyful day, that we returned back home unwillingly.
