Show Your World – Pardubice

Welcome to Show Your World blog event!

Here’re the main guidelines:
– tell us about an interesting place – it can be somewhere in your home country or a destination that you visited
– instead of just giving us facts about this location, use your words to show it to us as well – the way it looks, sounds, smells, conveying its atmosphere

Let’s make the entries pretty short – up to 300 words, but I won’t be very strict about it. Photos are welcome, but not a must.

I will publish my own story every Saturday and everybody’s welcome to either place a ping back to this post or share your link in a comment below. I would collect these links from Saturday until Wednesday evening, let’s say 8pm CET, and then post a round up on Thursday, sharing all the links and short descriptions of submitted stories. I will also share the links and images on my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Please, let me know your social network names, so I can tag you.

Make sure that you add ShowYourWorld tag to your entries, so that others can easily find you.

You can use this badge on your blog or on the post, which you submit:

I’ve written about beautiful places in Ukraine, Russia, China and Syria already, but now I want to write about the place, where we currently live – Pardubice, CZ.

I love that this town is so bright, with the houses painted in so many different colours. I love that you can feel the history, walking along the tiny streets of the old town. I love that it’s so small and cosy and you have all the perks of living in the city, but can always walk to the nearest river bank or a park in a matter of minutes. To be honest, this is probably my most favourite place, where we happened to live as expats.

Today was a brilliant day with sunshine and bright blue sky, which seemed like a great backdrop to the photos I made. You can have a look at a couple of landscapes I took for Photo101’s assignment. In the afternoon I took the girls for a walk, through the old town towards the local mansion (or castle?), where we wanted to feed the peacocks. For some reason, the peacocks didn’t plan on getting fed and were hiding somewhere in the backyard, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves, walking in the castle’s yard and having some tasty treats in a local cafe. The spring is here! Feeling it in the air, seeing this in the bright green shades of new grass and completely loving it! :)

  1. Simple, straight to the point and not too flowery. A most pleasing read, devoid of waffle and statistics. I could sense the warmth of the place. Pleasing images also. Well composed just like your images.
