Mona Lisa Plus

Post image

We’ve recently been to Paris and strolled along the banks of Seine, where all kinds of old stuff was being sold: postcards, posters, paintings, books.

Occasionally you stumble upon a really interesting artifact.

So we’ve spotted a brilliant version of Mona Lisa, which we named “Mona Lisa Plus” amongst ourselves. It looked so appropriate in the company of hundreds of canonical copies of Da Vinci’s work.

Bulgaria ‣ Part 2. Plovdiv

Post image

We decided to dedicate the last day of our Sophian journey to Plovdiv, going there in the morning and returning in the afternoon.

This idea was suggested by Slavyan during the Free Sofia Tour. Plovdiv is easily reachable by bus departing from the Sofia Bus Station. The direct trip takes two hours and costs 14 leva (€7).

Bulgaria ‣ Part 1. Sofia

Post image

There’s this country on our globe that is kind of special for Russian-speaking people, because they use the same alphabet but pretty different words. Which usually results in something either incomprehensible or hilarious.

That country is called Bulgaria, and I recently happened to visit its capital Sofia, and also to spend a day in the nearby Plovdiv.

Post image

One day we’d been wandering through the Citadelpark (which acquired its name because it’s situated on the site where in the XIX century Citadel of Ghent was) and came across two museums located next to each other in the damp and dusky grove (the weather was anything but good and the sky was growing dark, so I won’t show you the pictures of the park).

Belgium. Ghent ‣ Part 2. Night

Post image

Ghent inhabitants are very proud of the fact that their city once (in 2004) won the City-People-Light Award and received three stars from the Michelin guide for its lighting. January next year there will be a regular Light Festival in Ghent (held once in three years). In the meantime I’ll show you the night city as of January 2014.

Belgium. Ghent ‣ Part 1. Day

Post image

It’s easy to find beautiful places here in Europe, outside of the desert, even in our damp winter. We stumbled upon a good accommodation offer in Ghent, one of the prettiest Belgian cities. I’ve been in Ghent before, but only short time so I couldn’t see much.

Egypt. Hurghada ‣ Part 2. Desert

Post image

From the miraculous sea we migrate westward, to the desert that spans most of the area at the opposite side of Hurghada city. Desert is something you can always count on here in Africa, it’s just a couple of miles away from the city:
