Everything changes all the time, there's no denying in that, but how many changes are we making ourselves for a better life for us and others? I think there's always some room for improvement no matter if it's personal growth, cause we care about or something else. I know from my personal experiences that it… Continue reading A day for a change
So we've all been there, right? Doing something our own way and while talking to somebody about this thing they keep looking at you (probably stopped listening when you said the first thing they didn't agree on) and sort of nod from time to time and then say in this very pretentious tone: "Oh, but… Continue reading Every “Oh, but you know what you should do …” is followed by “How about no.”
And no I don't have any runaway strategy in mind I want to defend in front all of you. Because running way from your problems is not the solution, blah blah blah. Okay, let me elaborate on this. I've already mentioned that 2016 definitely wasn't my year, if anything it was damn far away from… Continue reading When nothing goes right, go somewhere else
Even though I don't remember ever uttering these words, here I am holding a golden ticket.But I guess I am a "big girl" now and obviously tall enough for this particular rollercoaster of funny nonsense. It's been hell of a year, but I can't really say if it was a bad or a good one,… Continue reading One yearly ticket for the grand emotional rollercoaster, please!
It's been a while since I've spent some time at the seaside. It's been a while since I've spent my summer staying in Ljubljana, not attending any summer schools or travelling around to be honest. So after my most-of-the-time- freezing Irish adventure and before my oh-fingers-crossed-this-happens adventure in Autumn I've decided to stay in the… Continue reading … and the living is easy or “uzmite keksiće, sve će se srediti”!
Why do we travel? For many different reasons, that's for sure. Usually we just wanna runaway for a while, get lost in a strange city where we can be whatever we want to be with no previous attachments whatsoever. But I'm pretty sure that the deepest desire behind the running away is the persuit of… Continue reading “While I was looking for myself”
Yes, I'm opening this post with a quotation by this irish guy, John Banville, who sounds not too shabby of a novelist (at least according to Wikipedia and Nabokov). So, why really? It's raining all the time, it's expensive as hell (we're assuming that it's really expensive there, like 6€ for a pint) and does… Continue reading “I live in Dublin, God knows why.”
"Rise and shine" I mumbled to myself in my sleepy voice as I got up and awkwardly sort of fell climbing down the bunk ladder. Thanks to that I have matching bruises on both of my arms, one from slipping in the bath tub last week. As you may tell I'm the master of self-inflicted… Continue reading Cache me if you can or how to explain all my bruises and blisters.
It's official: the world is coming to an end! Even though it seems that every week there's someone announcing the end of the world somewhere, this is not the case. I don't believe any of them, but a whole week of sunshine in Dublin? Well, that's something guys, I tell ya. So in disbelief of… Continue reading Seagull way? Almost, I’m off to see Galway.
Day off? And it's sunny? Off we go then! Gotta love day trips from Dublin. So this time (few weeks ago ho ho) we got on the train and went to the suburbs of Dublin. Originally a fishing village in Dublin bay - Howth (Binn Éadair for all you irish enthusiasts) is such a lovely… Continue reading Watch out for the cliffs, yo.
Saturday. 1 month since I set my foot in the city of thousand welcomes. If I didn't mention it before, everybody is super nice here. Like super duper nice. I would basically add half of the Dublin already because I consider them my friends after lovely meaningless chitchats haha. Everybody is so friggin nice. I… Continue reading The city looks so pretty…do you wanna paint it with me?
It's been three weeks already? Time sure flies fast when you're having fun. Or just have too many things to do. Or both. So, new week means new excuse why I didn't write something sooner and trust me, this one's a good one! As you may know there's this one thing called St. Patrick's day… Continue reading When a potato says “Let’s get mashed!” you might as well do what he says.
Let's face it, I'm a lazy blogger, but at least now I have an excuse cause I can say that the twins are quite handful. Which is 158% true. My first weekend off in Dublin - what to do, what to do... Well, I packed all the things that would come in handy and bought… Continue reading “…to hell with lemonade, just go with the beer!”
So my first week as an au pair was...something. There were, obviously, ups and downs. Few times I found myself just sitting on the floor in the middle of the chaos thinking "What the hell I'm doing with my life?" But there were also moments when I was all like "I TOTALLY GOT THIS!" I… Continue reading Whoever said all beginnings are hard was damn right!
And no I haven't used any of my irish phrases on an actual human here. I arrived two days ago and Ireland greeted me with rainy embrace. There were two little fellows waiting for me at the airport and what at first looked like being shy evolved into Iwanttodoanythingwithyana! My first two days here were… Continue reading How’s it going bud?
(I swear that's gonna go on my "New Year's resolutions" list!) So in the beginning of November I was invited to the great feast of St. Martin. You don't know what that is? Well, I googled it for you. You're welcome. Supposedly this Martin guy was known as a friend of the children and patron… Continue reading Because I never post things on time.
With shitload of work and lectures it's almost impossible to chill in the center by day, but night is a whole new story. That's why I usually just miss breakfast, because sleep isn't overrated - it's just plain awesome! Streets of Kraków in summer are just amazing, so many things going on from awesome street… Continue reading Would you like to spend a night out?
So first week is pretty much over. Everything's happening so fast and I still didn't get a proper sleep.Too many places to go, too many things to see. Quick summary of my random observations. There seems to be an infinite number of stairs in Poland, but as long as you get a view like this… Continue reading Randomness is awesome.
A day well spent in medieval atmosphere. Almost two hour ride from Krakow and there it is: Ogrodzieniec castle... or better say what's left of him. Ruins are proofs that if something's ruined it doesn't mean that it can't be beautiful. P. S. Polish vegetarian sandwiches are really something!
Polish people take summer schools a bit too seriously I guess. We have morning classes and afternoon lectures about literature, culture and stuff like that. And for those with scholarships it's obligatory, of course, 132 hours to be exact. So we're spending all of our time in the "university" or in the dining room, eating.… Continue reading Jagiellonian university, sup?
Streets of Krakow have their own heartbeat, that's for sure. After a chill day and university ceremony followed a chill afternoon with a beer on the main square till the sun went down. There was also some sort of "I think we're lost" situation going on, but nothing that tram rides can't solve. Still getting… Continue reading It’s getting dark.
Last minute packing or why the hell do I need this?! No no, I'll definitely need my gameboy. Catching the bus or excitement about 13 hours drive with major lack of sleep. Meeting fellow Slovenian on the bus by accident or fate? Getting lost at the the bus station itself or "my orientation is not… Continue reading Jedziemy do Krakowa!
