things that make me happy

by ada

This mini snail I met on my way to work one morning.


This plaque, which I, after having passed it five times a week for the last six months, have finally noticed. It marks the house the Hungarian poet József Attila had once lived in.

The rainbow I saw from our balcony the other day.

These pressed flowers I found in a book. They must have been there for the past twenty years.

These fox earrings (I am slowly but irreversibly turning into a Crazy Cat Lady; a spinster of a certain age, with wild hair, weird clothes and age-inappropriate jewellery).

Autumn. It’s almost gone now so let these pictures stand for All Things Awesome That I Missed Out On This Year.

Slovenia – the ground beneath my feet

by ada

There are a plenty of good reasons to examine the ground beneath your feet in Slovenia. Looking down keeps you entertained and, most importantly, it provides you with information that is essential for safe travel…

bus sign Piran 3

kranj ground 3

bycicle sign Portorose 1

…and for your survival through clues on where to find water and food.


ground Koper 4

If you’re lucky, you can even find some actual food.

Water is everywhere…

…and so is nature.

As for the animals, there are sea stars,…

Piran ground

…colourful fish…

Untitled 114

…cats, that are eager to make friends with you…

Untitled 151

…and more cats that are too busy on their way to secret missions to care.

You can also admire the beauty made by man.

Some of the artworks are even bearing the signature (and basic data information) of the artist.

You can read poetry…

…or challenge your ability of deciphering secret codes.

things that make me happy

by ada

I can’t believe it’s been more than a year since I last posted in this series. That tells tales about my circumstances lately. I’ve failed miserably with my New Year’s resolution of sharing more of my life here anyway – not that I don’t have a life because I rather do, but it seems I’m not good at getting personal. What I’m good at is taking photos of buildings and flowers, so this place has inevitably became kind of a travel blog, but without the joys and excitement of actual travelling. You know, something like an unofficial Budapest Guide for Weirdos (and for all who enjoy looking at dead butterflies and old medical instruments). This is a lose-lose situation, I’m afraid.

But there are still the small things, like…

…this super cheap waffle place and their raspberry mousse that tastes just like I remember it from my childhood.

Untitled 2

…pretty bees on pretty flowers.

Untitled 1

…visiting museums.

Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum 35

…doing small trips.

Hungarian train

…summer food.

Vácrátót arboretum wild strawberry

…thrifted summer clothes. Too bad I’m seven kilos overweight (oh well, waffle place, hello).


…the first outdoor swim of the year at Vadaš Thermal Bath in Štúrovo, Slovakia. (Okay, it happened more than a month ago. I’m actually  writing this post since years weeks. I hope one day – if life allows me – I can get back to real-time blogging.)

Sturovo strand 3

…going on a holiday! I haven’t been on a summer holiday since 2009 (ten days at the Bulgarian coast. I’m still dreaming about it). (I usually do budget travelling, that means Venice in February, Prague in October and that epic Moravian road tour in December. I haven’t felt a cold that freezing in my entire life than I did at a bus stop in Moravske Budejovice at 22.30 pm last winter.)
