ANROALISTIC JOURNEYS: CAFE AT TV TOWER

My dear little Friends,

I invite you to Miskolc, Avasi TV torony, to Hungary!
Avasi kilátó kávézó is a café situated at the TV tower in the center of Miskolc. It is the favourite hangout place for people who would enjoy a romantic atmosphere and beautiful night views.

I wandered in with my friend on a Friday night, and was immediately greeted by the incredible aroma of coffee and desserts.
Sitting in any table you have a wonderful view of Miskolc, the third largest city in Hungary.
The prices for desserts are a bit high there, but your tongue will definitely thank you!

And what can be better than a cup of aromatic coffee/tea and a lovely book to read: PASSIONATELY ABOUT UKRAINE ON AMAZON

Can you tell me where is your favourite café?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

THIS TIME NIEDERNSILL FOUND ME (VIDEO STORY IN ALPS)

A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective. Irving Penn

I cannot travel as often as I wish to. Therefore it takes time for planning and realizing. I tend to find my own destinations that are not popular and are unknown. My photocamera and heart brought me here, or, simply saying, my financial possibilities. And so what, I knew that I wanted to visit Alps, why should I spend huge money for the most expensive places. Such places are for those crazy Insta-selfie/Facebook lovers who care for the number of likes. I am in a search for the place that speaks to my heart and change me inside. This time Niedernsill found me…

Please do not forget to check my book on Amazon and my photo Gallery!

To be continued…

Stay in tune!

Love you all,

A Cup of Selfie Coffee?

My dear little Friends,

Today is the last summer day and I felt an urgent need to chat with you. And as you might now a good chat is always accompanied by a brewing cup of … coffee.

“As long as there was coffee in the world, how bad could things be?”  Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

It is indeed, my Friends. Thus a cup of coffee may not be only a bitter and hot drink that ignites your brain, but also a good way of entertainment and selfie. Yeah, yeah, you heard me right! There is a new terrific place in L’viv, the city of lions and everything Ukrainian, where you are able to drink a cup of great coffee with your picture in the foam. Aren’t you curious? I bet, you are.

L’viv, Soborna Square 2

How does it work? Pretty simple. You come there and order a cup of selfie coffee. A very friendly waiter will ask for your selfie or offer to make it with his phone, and volla … in some minutes you are served with a cup of your selfie coffee!

One of the new options is a very delicious hamburger made of fresh beef and vegetables that suits perfectly to your selfie drink.

A mouthwatering image that still chases my mind. Though I confess that it was huge for me and I hardly ate it.

Anyway, it is perfect final note of my summer rhapsody, I am ready to say goodbye to this hot (temperature didn’t decrease much yet) and sultry summer. I don’t know how about you, my Friends, but I am looking forward to meeting first cool autumn days when the nature takes its best outfits. In anticipation of my autumn photo sessions…would you like to join me?

Enjoy your day and meal!

Let me know how are you doing! I miss you!

“Nothing Is Impossible To a Willing Heart”

My dear little Friends,

In my mind I am still in Alps and I would like that my journey goes on…

From my travel journal “ANROALISTIC PHOTOJOURNEY TO NIEDENRSILL”:

Travelling still means money…at least, for Ukrainians…

I bet many of you cannot afford a lot of travelling as it costs money. Yes, it is, and sometimes not small money, especially for Ukrainians who live for salary or, better to say, survive. Nowadays travelling, even if planned beforehand, means saved money that can be freely spent. I have a feeling that not everyone in EU or US can also have extra money for travel. Many of us have bills and credits to pay, thus we have to think before spending a hard-earned cent. However, world develops so fast that everything looks easier now. Have you ever heard of low-budget travelling?

That’s it. This seems to be a new concept that has already worked for many tourists. Not everyone is ready to face its disadvantages as cheap flights, snoring or noisy neighbors at hostels, and tiredness from long-walks. Let yourself imagine all the advantages of such way of travelling. The number one is that you will be able to discover the places that you saw only on the pages of your favorite travel guide. The second, not less important, is that you are likely to meet new people who speak different language, but with whom you will certainly make good friends. At last, you will experience the enchanted moments of face-to-face lovely talks. Social networks cannot replace face-to-face chats. Thirdly, while traveling on a low budget you will appreciate the little things such as hot meals, soft beds, transportation after a few hours of waiting. Finally, you will pass a test for any unpredictable situations and explore yourself. Some of you may fall in love even. That’s what low-budget travelling can offer you. It is not a perfect solution, but an option. The choice is yours. All I want to say is that our wishes must not have any restrictions. I vote for “nothing is impossible to a willing heart”.

 Where are you now, my Friends? Any news? I’ve got news – I am holding the proof of my book…

Waiting for your comments! Please, please…

Love you all,

Yours Writer

 

 

 

ANROALISTIC PHOTOJOURNEY TO NIEDERNSILL: FIVE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING

My dear little Friends,

Thank you, my dear Maverick  and my dear Carole  for your kind comments on my previous post! I was happy to bring you with me!

And my journey goes on…

“Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera (Yousuf Karsh).

Niedernsille-6963

It is only five o’clock in the morning. But my mind revolves as on a pivot. My head is aching strongly as if somebody put something heave on it. I try to lift it from my soft welcoming pillow, but it falls heavily back. My eyelids flicker open to the sunlit room and the morning light trickles in through the blinds. I close my eyelids again. Shedding myself of the remaining glimpses of a dream, my eyes were still shut as I soaked in the warmth of my covers before letting my green eyes see the sun’s rays. The tasks of the day became demanding and I think about them. I slowly turn my head to the clock standing on the night table. I check the time and wondered why I am awake at such an early hour. No sleepiness, no slow warming up. Within seconds of realizing I am on my feet, eyes wide, and dreams not just forgotten but erased. The sleepy girl sits up, drags her feet off the bed, and rubs her knuckles onto her eyes. I watch my legs dangle above the brown old carpet. How oddly exciting I felt when I opened my shutter and saw this view.

The late night I got there by car and saw nothing around me. It was pitch-dark: I couldn’t see my hand before my face. But now I understood that I woke up in the other world. As if I turned my flying machine on and landed on the other planet. Sounds crazy, right? But that’s how I felt. The view was so stunning that I did not trust my eyes. The more I was standing on the porch in my red sleeping gown, the more excitedly my heart bet. I could not believe that such beautiful places exist. Even more I could not believe that I was there and everything what I saw was real. I did not look at the advertising pictures in the travel magazine, I saw them in reality. That’s what traveling gives us, it allows us to discover what this wonderful world has to offer. Just think that you might never see this place, you may never experience the excitement of new things, or never be amazed by simple and yet surprising joys of life. Just think!

Where was your last journey? Do you read travel magazines?

Please make me happy and leave your comments! Remember that you can be featured in my next post!

Love you all,

Yours A

 

Above Me Are the Alps

DSCN2608

My dear Friends,

Above me are the Alps and I found the way to get to them. I have never thought that I might be lack of right words to describe my feelings…but the time I saw them I couldn’t whisper a sound. I felt that mountains live in me, they are my vital part, I cannot live without them. John Muir said “We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” Lord Byron could not resist the beauty of Alps, so do I…

My thoughts are not gathered yet, I am like that castle in the center of the most beautiful and I am ready for a plunge…

Have a wonderful and inspiring week!

Love you all,

Yours Writer

 

A Little Village

AnRoalisticBlog top story

I happened to pay a visit to a little village at the river…

Begin.jpg

The local Hungarians who are lucky to live at the north bank of Danube always said: “Visegrad has the castle, but Nagymaros has the view”.  I totally agree with it.

Nagymaros Photos at Shutterstock

The ferry between Nagymaros and Visegrád, which is in service since May 1890, brought me to the opposite side of Danube. I confess I enjoyed this little river voyage and could not resist making several pictures. The port building – where the restaurant Maros is settled now -was built at the beginning of the 20th century by the shipping company.

Second.jpg

A first reference to the village is in a document from the 13th century when the king joined it to Visegrád, one of the royal residential centers of those days. Today Nagymaros with its more than 4 000 inhabitants and its infrastructure functions as a small center of the area between Vac (the next bigger town) and the Slovakian border.

Every village or city has its main square, Nagymaros is of no exception. FŐ TÉR (or main square in English) looks now almost as 150 years ago. The only missing element in its architectural look, as I heard, is the Casino with a restaurant and hotel rooms, which was destroyed in 1944.

Third New.jpg

I read that the Gothic tower (built in 1509) of the Roman Catholic Church is the only  monument in the Danube bend, which remained from the Middle-Ages. It has its saint who is St Martin, the bishop of Tours (France). He was born in the 4th century in the western part of today’s Hungary and he has been always a very popular saint among Hungarian Catholics. Church is closed, so you may take a look at it only.

At the end of my trip around the village I spotted a charming gallery and cafe where I ordered a cup of aromatic cappuccino. There were not too many people, so I chose the table at the terrace where I could enjoy warm sunny weather. I felt happy while sitting at this home-like cafe sipping my sweet drink.

Thank you for joining me!

Many photos from this village can bu purchased via Nagymaros Photos at Shutterstock or later at my gallery Pictorem.

Did you travel recently? Where have you been? What did you see?

I’d love to hear from you!

Love you all,

Invite Me To Your Favorite Place

My dear Friends,

You know how much I love making videos, but I found out that filming lovely places around the world is even more exciting.

At present,  vlogging is the hobby available for everyone who has a simple camera and an account on Vimeo or YouTube. The number of passionate travelers who discover this world through their cameras grows as fast as mushrooms after rainy days. Moreover, almost everyone tries to learn the best video editing technique and even buy a drone, which transforms a passionate hobby into a high-quality ad. But, many of them, after some time, offer the content that might be a lack of novelty. They always talk and share perfect hotels, resorts, exotic food, etc. They went to advertising that brings them money and their hobby transfers to work, their childish reaction to every new comment under videos converts to tiredness…I would not like to be such a person one day. My videos are too important to me. My purpose is to be always fresh and new, maybe not too perfect, but thought-provoking. That’s why I am working on it. That’s why I like it…

So, what is your favorite place where you are going to invite me?

Yours Film Director
