I could never decide on my favorite colour so I'm always trying to avoid this question as it starts a hurricane of thoughts on this particular topic, where I end up defending all the colours and looking for reasons why they could be my favorite one, the one and only. And of course I end… Continue reading A place where everything is a big blue hug.
The charm of chillin' at the beach in one moment and hiking up the mountains in the next one - Cyprus definitely has that. Of course Slovenia has that too, but when you live here you get used to things like that and of course everywhere else is more exciting! We grabbed some more coffee… Continue reading Mountains called, they wanted for us to get lost in them.
There are so many saying and metaphors for life as train tracks or a river, but I prefer the version where life looks like an ocean, like a sea and hits us with waves - small ones, big ones, no waves at all or a friggin tsunami. You know, typical unpredictable sea behaviour, more unpredictable… Continue reading She collected waves and covered her eyes with every 7th one.
At first I was amazed at how many cats I’m seeing with my own two eyes, but after a while I thought it was weird if there were no cats around. Even though I’m more of a dog person I’m still a huge fan of animals so these balls of fur made the streets look […]
I would start this by saying "On a nice day there's nothing like setting off for the beach", but here's the thing - every day here is a nice day and beach is basically everywhere. Anyhow, we did set off for the beach, but mainly because of the Street life festival in Limassol. It seems… Continue reading The city looks so pretty, do you want to paint it with me?
Nicosia, the largest city and the capital of Cyprus since the 10th century, you go Nicosia! Which is pretty badass, what's not badass though is the fact that the city was separated into Northern/Turkish and Southern/Greek part in 1974. There's an actual border in the middle of the city, dividing what used to be, but… Continue reading Streets of Nicosia, show me what you got!
I am quite a fan of random decisions, one of them was randomly booking a flight to Cyprus few months ago. Well, not too random though. Having friends all around the world might suck sometimes, because you don't get to spend the time together and you miss them just like all the time, but there's… Continue reading Cyprus, I’ll C you soon!
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!
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.
