Before the wind blows away these beautiful leaves, I had to visit Sežana’s lovely botanical garden. I try to visit all year round, but to me it is in autumn that the garden ‘displays its best clothes’. This year autumn was late and abit abrupt. By the time I found the time to visit, the […]
To kill time on this hot Sunday, I decided to visit the botanical garden. Meteorologically speaking it was perhaps not the wisest decision as it was incredibly humid, after last night’s torrential rain, but so worth it. I went for its hydrangea collection, that charms me any time of the year, but I did not […]
Ljubljana is so beautiful that even if you only have a couple of hours, you can still get to see so many beautiful sights. I was there yesterday afternoon for a seminar and only got about 2 hours for my much craved touristy stroll. I only got to walk around the Triple Bridge area, but […]

The weather has not been very clement so far, I went first thing this morning, just before the opening, and it started raining soon […]
Helichrysum italicum (curry plant) at the Parco di San Giovanni, Trieste.

I recently visited London and felt compelled to visit Kyoto Garden, inside Holland Park, for the first time after more than a decade. Since my last visit, a memorial has been erected to commemorate the victims of the Fukushima disaster.
