Synevyr Lake

Capathian Mountains Ukraine Travel Blog SIniciliya Veronica Pototska

For some reason, the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine are the most underrated destination in Europe.  Synevyr Lake is Ukraine’s most picturesque and clean lake, located in the heart of the Carpathian mountains, in Synevyr National Park. I visited this region in summer two years ago and fell in love with the beauty of nature, evergreen mountains, pine tree forests, mountain rivers, natural springs, and waterfalls. Ukrainian traditions are amazing, the food is to die for, and the people that live…

Tatra Splendor

Tatra Tatry Tatras Mountains Siniciliya Veronica Pototska travel blog

16 years ago was the first time that I visited the Tatra mountains in Poland. Back then, I spent one day rafting on a wooden raft paddling through the Dunajec river that flows on the border between the two countries Poland and Slovakia. That day was cold, foggy and rainy. And I promised myself that someday I would return there to once again enjoy the splendor of the Tatra Mountains. After so many years have passed, I went back to the…

The World of Natasha Fishchenko

September 10, 2016

I am very happy to finally announce our collaboration with a talented Ukrainian designer Natasha Fishchenko. We combined our visions of a young woman’s lifestyle and created two dresses perfect for traveling the world. Natasha Fishchenko’s design is inspired by a woman who gracefully bites juicy peaches and aristocratically walks barefoot through the warm puddles. She loves colors and combines prints, and she loves art. She travels around the world with a book in her hands. She is in love…

In Cappadocia

cappadocia sultan cave suites hot air balloons

Some time ago, I saw a picture of a magical place that seemed to exist only in fairy tales, or on a different planet. Hundreds of hot air balloons flew in the sky, people built their homes in the caves and decorated them with colorful hand-woven carpets. They spent their evenings by a fireplace listening to the sound of crackling fire and drank red wine. Every morning with the first rays of burning red sun they took herds of lambs…

InterContinental Hotel in Geneva

Intercontinental - where to stay in Geneva - travel blog

Geneva was the first city in the world that introduced the concept of modern tourism. It means that Geneva was the first city where visitors came to enjoy its hotels and landscapes. The first tourists who came to the city years ago enjoyed its beautiful surroundings: the mountains, the lakes, thermal springs and the view at Montblanc. This is how the new tradition of tourism began. Since then, many luxurious 5-star hotels, including InterContinental, were built in Geneva. Even though…

Hong Kong Aqua Luna Siniciliya Veronica Pototska Гонконг Вероника Потоцкая

Just imagine a city that made a big step into the future, but kept the old traditions in the hearts of its millions. Hong Kong has learned a lot from the many cultures that it interacts with every day, but it has kept its uniqueness and authenticity. As you walk by the seafront at Victoria Harbour, you will see an old wooden boat that is called a “junk” locally, with bright red sails smoothly cruising between Hong Kong Island and…

Roads … the sound of this word makes me hungrily look around anticipating a new adventure. Since I was a child, the love for the trip meant much more than the arrival. I enjoyed the entire process of watching road markings disappearing under the wheels and flashing scenery passing by on the sides. Freedom and wind … can anyone ever have enough of them? Even now, as I’m writing these lines, my body gets covered in goosebumps and my skin…

Private island … is it a dream, “goals”, lifestyle or reality?

Surrounded by cyan and emerald shallows, clearest water…

Paddling through Bohol

February 1, 2016

I have always enjoyed watching photographs of people doing sup boarding, they have looked so authentic, close to nature with some mysterious Native American touch in them. I am still here in the Bohol island in the Philippines and I saw an ad that I could explore a beautiful Loboc river by the most authentic way – paddle or sup board, during which I would be able to see the jungle, waterfall, and local’s huts. After I have experienced 3…
