Louvre


I guess this must be common feeling amongst most visitors: never felt so overwhelmed and annoyed by art.
(note: the love of art have been hammered into my head over many years, masters degree in art/art history included) I have always wished to visit the place, dreamed about visiting the place, now I hope I will never have to go back. There was no air to breath, no English language what so ever, making the experience that much more confusing, lack of public restrooms, and just too much amazing art. We gave up after six hours of browsing around.

Details of the city.



 The place is beautiful. Incredible. Once you get over the trash, the smell and the lack of pubic restrooms, that is.

Paris, here we come!

 We are taking mum to celebrate her birthday. Very special trip for us all. I have never been to Paris, just southern France. I am very curious, we have about five days, cramped with activities.

Always pay attention to the details, so I was tought.



...oh, do not forget The Chateau...


 It is sitting just there, on a hill. It was always something to do, to go there, any time, any season,  regardless of the opening hours, or weather, for the whole family or just myself, the WALK is always there. See, every village in the Czech Republic has a castle or at least ruins of one. They are treasured and visited often. This one is mine. Rajec-Jestrebi is a Classicist Chateau of the French type with luxuriously furnished interiors (large collection of Biedremeier furnishings) of the princely Salm family. The estate parks are beautiful and open to the public year round. Pleasure to visit anytime. Trust me.

Dear grandma, let`s talk kitchen.



The place where we spent our summers at, the place I saw preserves and the process of making them for the first time. Some of most amazing meals I have ever ate. The space untouched and unchanged for over sixty years. The most amazing kitchen I have ever seen.
