Another stunning location from #Iceland - one of my favorite, btw - #Vestrahorn, also in the southern part of the island. This place is very popular among travel, adventure and landscape photographers here on Instagram, so I was really worried that it will be as crowded as other „insta“ locations of Iceland. So, imagine how surprised I was to find this black volcanic beach with an extraordinary background all to ourselves 😍This was the first place where I really understood how it felt to travel through Iceland some 10 years ago - pure serenity, tranquility and peace.
.
Is there a destination like that nowadays somewhere? I doubt it.

#Iceland has become famous for its breathtaking nature and incredible natural phenomena like the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. But the country is also a paradise for all kinds of wildlife, from sea mammals like whales and seals to land animals like reindeer and foxes. Not to mention some of the largest bird populations in the world. Icelanders live in close harmony with nature and the elements, and that has created a unique bond with the animals of an Arctic island. There are few places in the world like Iceland, where you are able to easily view puffins, seals and foxes in the wild. And trust me, this experience is unique.
.
.
Here are 5 best bird watching spots to see these marvelous “clowns of the seas”, where you’ll definitely get a sense of a true naturalist while traveling in Iceland:
➡️ Vestmannaeyjar – largest puffin colony in the world!
➡️ Lundey – Akurey (reachable by boat from a harbor in Reykjavik)
➡️ Látrabjarg - another reason not to miss out the Westfjords
➡️ Dyrhólaey - where this photo was taken, right on your way through the south
➡️ Borgarfjörður Eystri - “it’s as if you’ve died and ended up in a puffins heaven” - this is what our guide book says about this place. In reality, we obviously came here too late - birds were almost all gone by the time we got to the place.

Are you going to Iceland this season?

When talking about Iceland you cannot help but mention the scale - it’s really stunning, whether you talk about waterfalls, glaciers, whales or volcanoes (or amount of tourists, btw) - everything here is great in all the meanings of this word. .
Say this canyon, called #Fjaðrárgljúfur, it is a magnificent and massive creation, about 100 meters deep and about two kilometres long. The canyon has sheer walls, and is somewhat serpentine and narrow. The bedrock in Fjaðrárgljúfur is mostly palagonite from cold periods of the Ice Age and is thought to be about two million years. Today Fjaðrá is often rather low in water and therefore hikers can safely choose to walk inside the canyon. However, wading is necessary fairly often. Deep in the canyon there are waterfalls so one needs to walk the same way back. Most people choose to walk along a walking path up on the canyon's edge while simultaneously enjoying the view above the canyon.
.
So, where was I? Oh, yes. The RIVER MADE IT! I mean this river, and this canyon. How cool is that?!
.
Have a sunny summer weekend, everyone!

Remember my plan was to show you 10 of the most beautiful waterfalls of Iceland? Well, so far I managed to show you... how many? .
.
In any case, I still haven’t shown you this one, and it definitely is worth its place in my top10. Dear all, behold - here comes #Svartifoss, one of its kind. It is one of the unique waterfalls in South-Iceland. It is situated in Skaftafell, which belongs to Vatnajökull National park. #Skaftafell is a true oasis after driving through the vast black lava sand plains of Skeiðarársandur glacial outwash. .
Svartifoss is such an elegant waterfall, 20 metres tall, and black columnar basalt formations beautifully frame the waterfall and give it its name, Black Fall. From afar it looks like a big heart. It is a very romantic waterfall and I even know someone who got engaged here!

A year ago we packed our bags and embarked on a journey that ended up to be the most adventurous, remarkable and memorable of them all, and you know what? I decided to dedicate this month to it, so in the next few posts you'll see more of this incredible and beautiful country, that lots of you know as "ice and fire" one. And I start with ice obviously, since it's too damn hot outside these days.
.
Have you already guessed which country I'm talking about? Would you like to see more of it? Have a great week and... stay cool, everyone!

Another refreshing sunrise over the village where I grew up back in Ukraine. It's not the place where I was born, it's not the place where my father comes from, and it's not the place where I live at the moment, but it still remains my home. Funny thing: more than half of my life I didn't even live here, but I guess those 12 years of childhood matter the most when it comes to defying your home. It's the place where I have a house that was built by my grandpa and my dad, beautiful garden, where my grandma still works every single day, it's where my mom lives, where I still have some best friends, those who stick for a lifetime, you know. The place that is in my heart for ever. The place that I love. My home.

You know how I always felt happy and thankful for being able and having all those wonderful opportunities to capture my awesome family‘s adventures all around the world? Here my daughter swims in Atlantic Ocean for the first time, there she eats her first PadThai, here she discovers the largest cave in Europe, there she‘s trying to catch colorful fish in a Red Sea...So many gorgeous moments, so many glorious memories... And now, when she is old enough (and getting pretty smart I have to say) she starts asking questions when she sees those photos, like which country was it, whether she liked it or whether we bought a souvenir there. But the most common question is: „Where were YOU, mommy, when me and daddy did it?“ And so I understood that it‘s time to give the camera over to my hubby, at least sometimes, just you know, to make sure my daughter remembers me too 😂

Only because I’ve now finally booked our summer vacation and am pretty happy about it and very much looking forward to! First one who guesses the destination gets a postcard once I’m there :) A hint: there will be SEA for sure 👒

#Golzernsee, everyone - just because you asked for both the name of a location we've visited last Sunday and for more pics. Definitely worth a visit! It's quiet and beautiful, and very much child-friendly, btw. Enjoy! .
Do you already know where are you spending the coming weekend? I'm in a constant search of inspiration, so please feel free to share your ideas in comments. Cheers! .

That time when I wanted to make my first night sky shot, but it was so cold and dark outside, and so warm and cozy inside, that I fell asleep and that was it. But I was talking about it so much that my hubby actually went out and did it for me ❤️ so technically it's his first night sky shot. . P. S. Still didn't make mine.

And here goes our very first spring hike of the season! Everything was perfect on that April day - the weather was fabulous, our friend came for a visit for the first time since we moved to Switzerland, our LO was healthy and happy and it was a lovely weekend after all. There's just so many things that can go wrong here, you know... I mean, you never know, right?
.
Do you recognize the place, btw? I've already posted pictures from here some time ago - it's actually our second visit to this marvelous lake, and I'm pretty sure it's not the last one.
