MOTO GP / Czech Republic

Moto GP 1The weekend we spent at Brno was one of a kind. This road trip turned out to be a really nice adventure between friends sharing the same love for sports and sporting events in general. The two days we spent on the Brno circuit filled me with one-of-a-kind energy that made me feel like I was one with all supporters right there. Imagine 120,000 people screaming and clapping every time a motorbike passes by, waving at all the racers no matter who they were. Surprisingly, unlike in many other sports, rivalry and hatred seemed nonexistent in MotoGP which appealed to me right away and made me love and respect that sport even more. But as a supporter and fan of the Doctor, Valentino Rossi seeing 95% of the public from all around Europe cheering for him and sporting either t-shirts, caps, umbrellas or flags from his own brand was definitely the highlight of the weekend. Looking back, I came to realize that no matter how good you are at what you do, or how talented you are your personality is what makes a difference. People love Valentino Rossi not only because he is the greatest racer of all times but also because he is a genuine person who keeps things simple and make us laugh.
No matter if he was practicing, qualifying or racing, at the end Valentino Rossi slowed down his bike and took the time to wave at us all which showed us that he was really appreciative of the warm support he was getting from his fans. No surprise though that I could count on the fingers of one hand how many Lorenzo fans were there.

Take a look at my first pictures as a sports photographer and simply enjoy. ^^

K O R N A T I | PART 1

It would have been a shame to leave Dalmatia without visiting the K O R N A T I , archipelago of Croatia which includes 140 islands. The trip was very pleasant due to the family atmosphere that reigned on the boat.  We left early in the morning and spent most of the day on the boat, cruising in between islets and reefs, snapping pictures and socializing with other passengers. During our first stop, we reached the highest point of the Kornati from where we enjoyed the mesmerizing view and also took some beautiful pictures, that will be revealed in part 2. There, we swam and dived for almost an hour and after we were on our way to a local restaurant. After eating lunch and visiting the surroundings, the boat stopped in the middle of the sea and we couldn’t resist jumping off the boat in the deep blue water. It was amazing!

P O D V R S K E

Podvrske beach 1This is the third year in a row that we spent our vacation in gorgeous Dalmatia, and I am still blown away by the beauty of this part of Croatia. We visited at least 10 different beaches in the area through the years and fell in love with this little wild beach called P O D V R S K E. It is situated on the Murter island not far from the famous sand beach Slanica. Croatia isn’t usually known for having large sand beaches and that these are a real rarity there, but the color of the sea is one of the most beautiful I have seen in my life. It is as I like to say, a mix between the Atlantic and Indian ocean as there are different shades of blue. In some places the transition between shallow and deep water is spectacular not only because of the color change but also due to the clearly visible slope and I couldn’t help myself but to dive at least hundreds of times to look at it. The feeling while swimming “from one side to the other” is indefinable. This is the most free I have ever felt.

I hope you will enjoy the pictures and stay tuned as there is more to come.

WEEKEND GETAWAY

WG 1The weekend at the seaside in Novi Grad in Croatia with some good friends was exactly what we needed and even more. The weather wasn’t ideal as it was windy all weekend long but we wewe anyways able to enjoy the first swimming this season in the beautiful Adriatic sea with its 24 degrees. But the best thing must be the little cabin we spent the weened at that is located just steps from the sea so we had the chance to fell asleep and woke up with the sound of the waves every day, and I swear, it is the best feeling ever.

The seagulls also played a great role in making my weekend invigorating and very cool. We fed them while emptying and cleaning the sardines we bought for lunch. At the end they were more than 20 on the beach, flying above us, fighting between them and some of them making their recognizable noises. After that I had the feeling they were following us as I kept hearing them scream everywhere we went. ^_^

I hope you will like the pics I snapped. Sorry that some of them have blurry parts, but I didn’t noticed that the lens was dirty! I will pay more attention to that the next time.

Have a beautiful evening guys,

SPRING IN PARIS | BONJOUR TOUR EIFFEL

SPRING IN PARIS TOUR EIFFELI never got tired of seeing and photographing la Tour Eiffel.
After we finished visiting Les Invalides and le Musée de l’Armée we decided to scroll through the small streets of Paris towards the Eiffel Tower to see what’s hiding in this part of Paris. We discovered tons of cute bistrots serving great Entrecotes but because of the crowded terraces we continued on our way and ended up eating Au Bureau on les Champs-Élysées. It is a very cozy place that reminds me of Irish pubs and their food is really good. I don’t have pictures of the place since I was impatiently waiting for my chicken to arrive and God knows that when I’m hungry I’m not in the mood to talk, smile and even less take pictures! Sorry ^^
Anyways, Paris looks awesome in Spring thanks to the amazing blossoming trees and the green color of the fresh grass. But don’t be fooled by the sunshine and blue sky, it wasn’t hot at all! It was windy and cold but luckily it started to rain the day after that so we have at least some nice pictures from that Parisian trip.
I’ve got to go now as I’m heading to an outside birthday party! Yay, grilled meat here I come!

Have a nice one folks,

Xo, G.
