Travel pic challenge

 

PIC CHALLENGES – OMG…

I love to take pics & post them but am not the one who loves to do those daily challenges.
I think there are too many, at least on Facebook.
Black ´ n  white, your every day life for 7 days, pic a day with no words..
When I post a pic I like to tell something about that not just post it cos I have to.
Dont get me wrong, I like to see others pics.
That is how I found this one am doing right now.
This sounded fun and not too serious to do, so I challenged myself 😀

So you should choose 10 pics and post those under the given headline, you may add some words if you want to. Sounds simple right??
Well, nope- if you happen to be like me, having billion pics to choose from and not even being able to choose pics to Instagram.. That is problem number one.
Problem number two: I did this first in finnish, thought it would be quickest and easiest post ever.. hah!
I dont know why, how & what the heck- but I happen to have extra space between my pics and pic-explanation.
I tried to re-post it, put words first & then pic, then vice versa and then I asked Jani´s help but there were nothing to do, so this easy, fun challenge turned to be a challenge-in so many words..

Anyway, here we go 💪


1. PERFECT MOMENT


Lake Balaton.
This is also first real holiday-day, best view (that Lake), best company & one of the best ciders!!
What more could you wish more?! 😉

We meant to stay only a day or two in Maribor, but we ”got stuck” there for almost a week cos Sunday and then a national holiday.
Not only we got our car fixed, also got that perfect moment: ”right here,right now”, no stress, no rush, just us. The surrounding was perfect & so was the company 😉
Pic is from Piramida- the Wine Hill.
They serve excellent red & white wine there.
PS Havent really been any wine person in past years, so this pic/memory making it to ”perfect moment” is a huge thing..


2.  THAT TYPICAL TOURIST PIC


Didnt know why at the moment, but since there were so many people every time taking a pic, waiting for the pic- I had to go as well..
Touching the front hooves is said to make wishes come true.
This pic is from Riga, Latvia & Town Musicians of Bremen.
At the beginning it was a sad story, mistreated by their masters those animals (donkey,cat,dog and rooster) leave their homes & decide to go to Bremen, to live without owners and become musicians.
PS The sculpture is a gift from city of Bremen to Riga. They are twin cities, if you wonder..


Almost everyone has posted at least one pic from airplane.
That´s what I love to do as well, when I fly..
Today I have seen so many ”plane window” pics so I thought this one goes great here 🙂
If you look closer you can see that odd gyre above the wing.
We are just about to land to Belgrade´s  (my home-away-from-home) Nikola Tesla-airport.

3. SO FAR AWAY

What a hike but oh boy what a view as well!! Old fortress and Lake Balaton..
Our place is somewhere there.. Balaton/”Szigligötötötö”, Hungary.


Sun was just about to go down, when we came from Nebojsa Tower and I had to catch it!
So yes, that black figure is me – having fun with the sun 🙂


4. IN THE BIG CITY


Found it first so difficult since I dont really do those anymore.. but I forgot St Petersburg!
Love it!!
First time it was super hot and almost gave up and went back to the boat, but luckily we didnt since there happened to be Harley Days- so of course we had to go and check it!!


Am always ready to go back there and so we did- wuhuu!!
Love to watch ice hockey and what is better place to watch it than St Petersburg?!
SKA-Jokerit was great and we also celebrated my brothers 18th birthday!


5.  GETTING TIRED  ZZZ…

With this you keep going few more hours.
This Big Berry´s double-icecoffee goes also under perfect moments but also ”party in my mouth”..
Just saying! Kiev, Ukraine is the address for these yummies.


Getting up…
If hotel´s would serve their breakfast till 12, that would be perfect- just that we dont need to get up too early on our holiday.
We try to book some kind of apartment or a hotel room with a fridge if we stay lil longer, so we can sleep as long as we want to..
Maribor, Slovenia.


6. SUNSETS <3

Perfect moments as well.. Cant just pick one.
Serbia & Russia <3


7.  PARTY IN MY MOUTH


Yes please!
These again could be part of my perfect moments 😂
I miss the places for sure but their food as well!!
I try to eat low-carb back home (cos I´d be that 100kg fatty again if not) so when I travel I let me to eat pretty much everything I want 😂
So here is best pizza in Serbia and so far on my Top 3 in the world..
They also serve one of the best pastas…


And Sushi! Cant say no to sushi!!
When we go to Latvia we eat it on breakfast, lunch, meals, snacks, snack before the hockey game and snack after the bar 😂


8. PLACE THAT WAS DISSAPOINTMENT


First place that comes to my mind is Paris. I know, I know most of you reading this are gasping for air now.
I was travelling with my uncle and we had stopover, spent a day and night there 2008.
It´s beautiful for sure but I think Paris is kind of overrated. I think one time was enough, I love to travel but I rather travel somewhere else..
Those Paris´s pics are somewhere so no show now 😛
Then Ostrava came up, went there last year, no thx! After our visit there I saw an artcile from a car magazine & they were telling great things about the city and we were like ”where they really there”…

But I think I found the winner.
Allas Sea Pool- in Helsinki. That is one ugly building.. goosh!! What a waste of money. Just saying.
Sorry I dont have a pic just drove by so use Google if you arent in Hki to see that..

 

9. ”ANYTHING FOR PERFECT SHOT”

We went up to Pohorje (Slovenia)- just look at the view!!
Pic is from our cable car.
This moment / pic fits here cos Jani is afraid of heights but still he did this!! 💪


Smoke effect time- dont remember how many shots we took but that was fun though.
And the restaurant was full but I dont think we are the only ones trying to get a great shot 😀
Pic is from our place in Serbia.


10. ROAD TRIPPING
Hard to choose – surprise, surprise…

Who said you cant do a road trip with Sportster & take everything you need to with plus us two!
Well, there you see also the reason why we dont do those that often and why we have been only touring in Finland, Sweden and Estonia…


Road to hell..
We had to take detour. Sun was about to go down and we ended up driving through some gypsy-village and the mountain..
I dont remember when was las time I´ve been so scared, those guys just tried to throw some things so we would stop and more&more people are getting to the street with barking dogs.
Jani just told me to hold on, drove up and we made to Kosice.
Since that we´ve been travelling, but havent been back to Tatra..

That ´s it!
I think this was also my first time ever I completed any pic challenge!!
Wow, cheers to that then🍸
If you have any similar one you can try to challenge me, I might take it 😛
If you wanna do this, please!

Hungary- really surprised us and quickly became our fave place.
Jani, Balaton, first night, ice cold drinks (Strongbow&Dreher) & cigar = perfecto!!
Cant wait to get back there!!


Sunset & Perfect moment..


Local bakeries or just choosing a cake at the Cafe = must things!
These are also perfect moments – surprise…
