Sunday nature experience πŸ‡»πŸ‡ͺ

In a cable car, overlooking Caracas, Venezuela, September 2023

Iconic Avila Hills around Caracas are not only green and attractive. Avila Park also serves as a green lung to the city and is home to some amazing fauna and flora. There are also picturesque villages tucked in small valleys between green hills. Definitely a place to spend some quality free time! I enjoyed the trip even more, as Leo, my new colleague was a very attentive and helpful guide and hiking companion.

Just a day before leaving for Lisbon and then Caracas, I met with my two dear friends (and their lovely son) in Bardejov of Slovakia.

Of course, we needed to take our chances to meet. Here is a small photo report of the reunion!
