  • Fact: everyone needs an Alex in their life ♥️ . I woke up this morning feeling a little worse for wear. He didn’t judge. In fact, he knows that I get home sick fairly often (I actually only live an hour away from where I grew up lol but he knows I like my particular traditions). SO he decided we would make a new tradition. . I love garden centres at Christmas, L O V E T H E M. In particular one called Poddington Garden Centre where I would go with my parents every year as a kid as they had a huge Christmas display with lots of decorations (and a great cafe with oodles of cake and shortbread). Alex knows I miss this tradition so he took me to Crews Hill which is a place basically full of garden centres. For real, the whole place confuses the heck out of me, it’s just a street lined with garden centres or shops that sell sheds yet it has its own train station. Whatever, not the point. He took me into a garden centre, I was expecting a few pretty decorations but oh my giddy aunt. This place was like Mary Poppins’ handbag. It opens up into the most incredible Christmas display. So good in fact that there was a 4-5 hour wait to see Santa and it cost a tenner BUT it included a friggin train ride. There was a fake ice rink (you ice skate on slippy floor rather than actual ice 🤣). You could buy crepes, hot chocolate, one room had been turned into a German village and there were ginormous polar bears (fake obv) that had funny eyebrows and played musical instruments. . Anyway. The point is 1) my Alex is the best thing since sliced bread and 2) if you ever feel homesick, don’t forget to make new traditions and it will turn the new place into a new home ♥️ . PS this photo is not of the garden centre, but I thought it was a rather fab Christmas display 🎄 . PPS I have written a blog post about my favourite Christmas displays in London, click the link in my bio 🎅🏼☃️

  • Pan out and see the forest. Just over half an hour after meandering through the pine forest, we were embraced by this spectacular sight. You cannot walk past here without taking time to admire what’s in front of you. Just look at that view; a peek of the gorgeous Vierwaldstättersee veiled by thin fog amidst crisp green pine trees. If any of you are curious as to what the silvery line towards the left of the frame is, that is the Sommerrodelbahn (toboggan ride). Yup, the little cart ride on the steel pipelines.There was not an opportunity to take a ride as that would’ve taken us downwards as oppose to going up, plus it’s only open during summer, as the name suggests. Quite unfortunate as it looks like so much fun but I reckon there will be another time for it. (I still have a stay at the Bürgenstock Hotel on my “To Do List”.) As we ascended, naturally we encountered sparse groups of fellow hikers; friends, families and lone alpine hikers. It was comical when we kept overtaking the same faces at different parts of the trail, and each time we do so we’d throw jokes or throw that “Yeap, now I’m leading in front of you. Not so fast now are ya!” grin at each other. I wasn’t making new friends, but it’s that sense of familiarity with strangers that I appreciate when in the outdoors. Everyone respect others’ space but at the same time, you know each one of us are keeping an eye out for one another. A feeling of community regardless of the lack of similarities. . . #adventureseeker #doyoutravel #discoverearth #goexplore #worldtravelpics #wanderlust #travelawesome #travelgram #travel #travelbloggers #traveldiaries #beautifuldestinations #worldtravelbook #passionpassport #peoplescreatives #theworldguru #theworldshotz #postcardsfromtheworld #hiking #potd #photooftheday #exploretocreate #instatravel #switzerland #europe #visitswitzerland #ig_switzerland #naturephotography

  • PL | ENG Gozo za każdym razem robi na mnie takie samo wrażenie - jestem absolutnie oczarowana. Ta wyspa ma w sobie coś magicznego. Widoki zwalają z nóg, plaże są piękne i czyste, a miasteczka przeurocze. To właśnie tu można zaliczyć najlepsze podwodne doświadczenia, zachwycać się przyrodą i odpocząć od turystów, którzy rzadziej tu docierają, zwłaszcza zimą. Jesteś tylko ty i turkusowa woda. Już tęsknię. 💙 ••• Gozo impresses me everytime I visit this little magical island. Here you get the best mediterranean landscapes and unforgettable snorkeling experiences. The beaches are stunning and clean and you can actually rest, cause tourists don’t get here that often in the winter. There is only you and stunning turquoise water. I already miss it. 💙

  • Каждый раз, когда мне кажется что в виде из иллюминатора нет ничего необычного, я представляю многих из вас на моем месте впялившимися в окошко без единого шанса отлипнуть. И в такие моменты возвращается понимание красоты, так что спасибо что не даёте моему глазу зымылиться этими бесконечно-прекрасными пейзажами

  • there are 5 people shown here, little one trying to tell us something. there are 5 people in her drawing, 5 who set themselves aside for her days to be brighter than sunshine. ♥ Kids are inclined to be selfish, yes, but that purity in them is always a good guide, that purity beats PhD any given time. #raisingunicorns

  • Морские побережья очень впечатляющие чудеса природы, каждое из них обладает уникальным и неповторимым шармом. Я не поклонник туристических направлений, где мягкий песок удобен лишь для "тюленьего отдыха". ⠀⠀ На моей милой Родине в Приморском крае невероятное количество безумно красивых и немного опасных бухт, вокруг которых созданы десятки легенд и добраться туда будет очень непросто, но это того стоит поверьте. ⠀⠀ А, это маяк "Токаревская кошка" - визитная карточка Владивостока и очень атмосферное место. ⠀⠀ 💙 Я желаю всем счастья 💙

  • "I'd never really felt lonely even though I've always been alone. The first time I clearly felt lonely was three months after the end of my long-term relationship. It's sort of like knowledge - when you learned something, you can't un-learn it. When I realised what loneliness is, I just see it everywhere."
