My 2020

For the past week and a bit my Instagram and Facebook feed has been filled with everyone’s highlights of 2020, and this was the first year when I simply wasn’t ready to look back on 2020. Until now.

It’s been a very different year. Most unusual. Most unexpected.

Scotland, you’ve won my heart!

I’m a frequent visitor to Scotland, however most of the times it’s for business rather than leisure. In fact, most of the times it’s a round trip in one day – and all I see is the road from Glasgow airport to the office.

But I knew that there is so much more to Scotland than Glasgow (everyone should know this, ha), and I saw the most beautiful shots whilst watching Outlander – TV series set in Scottish Highlands. So we had to go – and we did, on our 11 year anniversary.

Outlander Scotland Tour filming location Highlands

Within 4 days, we saw 7 castles, followed the path of Claire and Jamie in the key filming locations, and overall,  travelled almost 500 miles. The trip took my breath away, so I’m sharing it with you, hoping to inspire you to add Scotland to your bucket list.

I fully recommend to put Outlander playlist on (Spotify) whilst scrolling through our journey. ❤ Continue reading “Scotland, you’ve won my heart!”

10 reasons why Puglia should be your next holiday destination

I’ve shared my trip with you guys on Instagram, but I don’t feel like it justified just how amazing Puglia, South-East region of Italy was. You absolutely have to add it on your bucket list, and here is why:

1. You can stay in the Trullo – cone-shaped house unique to the region

davWe stayed in one just outside Ostuni – Trullo Dipinto. I’ve never stayed in a place like that before, but can certainly say: when in Puglia, stay in a trullo!Here’s what it looked like inside: Continue reading “10 reasons why Puglia should be your next holiday destination”

Brookes Snow Ski Trip 2017

We just got back from the best Ski trip ever at Les Acrs 1800, and I just can’t keep my emotions in! I literally was in tears on the last day – leaving the Alps broke my heart!

First of all, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Oxford Brookes Snow Sports Committee and Wastelandski reps – you guys have made the trip absolutely fantastic!

Secondly, I would like to thank my friends, who have been amazing this week and made the trip the best group trip I’ve ever been to.polina-rocks-les-arces-brookes-snow-ski-trip-2017-emoji

Thirdly, I need to thank the weatherman, who granted us some fresh pow on the day we arrived.polina-rocks-les-arces-brookes-snow-ski-trip-2017

The proposal

For our eight year anniversary Ben took me to Paris. Eight years together turned into something much more romantic and important to celebrate. We got engaged.

On the 26th of September, at 8 am, Ben dragged me out of bed to have a photo shoot. If you know me well, you can imagine how delighted I was at the prospect (if you don’t, follow me on Instagram:))

We met the photographer at Trocadero just when the sun was rising. Zero tourists, just other couples with other photographers – the place has got the view!

Akbar Trastevere @ Rome

Who cares about the tourist guides or Tripadvisor?
Once you’ve walked through the door of a nice establishment, you know whether you are going to love it or hate it (until you get your first drink anyway 🙂 )Ben and I were wandering around the Trastevere area and spotted a bar – Akbar – it looked really  nice from the outside, so we decided to give it a shot.
