Unexpected beauty

Sometimes the best things you'll discover while travelling are random and unexpected places. You are merely walking around a street and unexpectedly you stumble upon the best view of the entire city. Or perhaps out of the blue you find some interesting art, statue or some sort of decoration. I just love random things you … Continue reading Unexpected beauty

Positive Energy

Often school, work, expectations, and obligations consume our spirit and happiness to a degree of forgetting to smile. Sometimes it is rather difficult to find positive energy when you're cooped up in four walls every day. For this reason, people seek different ways to release stress. For some, the best way is reading a book … Continue reading Positive Energy

Street performers

Exploring new cities and strolling around unknown streets can be very fascinating with street performers. Just imagine walking on Prague's famous Charles bridge and you hear "Imagine" on the background. Or you are at the Eiffel tower and several artists create their versions of the tower on their canvas. Art is certainly beautiful and often … Continue reading Street performers

Eternal Love

Undoubtedly, a lot of people are familiar with the concept of love-locks. Many couples dream to put their lock to the many popular bridges and destinations around the world as a promise of eternal love. Truthfully, I always found it an interesting and beautiful concept. While travelling around Europe I was lucky to see many … Continue reading Eternal Love

The sea life

For most of us this year we got stuck in our homes, unable to travel to other countries. Here in the UK since travelling abroad is nearly impossible most British people are taking the opportunity to explore their country, especially the South. Since its summer and for once the weather is warm, we can finally … Continue reading The sea life

One love

They say one picture is a thousand words. Looking at this picture I can see several meanings. Here are some words that I can think of: Love, kindness, smile, happy, relax, enjoy, art, Bob Marley, music, summer, sunbathing, tanning, sunburn, sea, ocean, blue, beach, waves, sky, sand, bikini, flip flops, seagulls, mermaid and many others. … Continue reading One love

The island of cats

In a previous post I called Cyprus the island of Aphrodite. However, the truth is that Cyprus could easily be called the island of cats. Legend says that Cyprus was gradually overtaken by poisonous snakes therefore, Saint Helen brought to the island cats to minimise the population of snakes. Centuries later, there are probably more … Continue reading The island of cats

Bright night

One thing that I love in big cities is that they never go to sleep. At daytime one can easily explore and discover the many different attractions, parks and historical places. The streets are booming with boisterous and cheerful tourists. However, night does not mean darkness and silent streets. The cities are still lively and … Continue reading Bright night

Green and other colours

As a child I always loved nature. I grew up in the countryside and my home was surrounded by wheat fields and olive groves. However, Cyprus is a relatively dry land thus, when I visit other countries I love exploring their natural parks and natural reserves. I love how colourful nature can be. It is … Continue reading Green and other colours

Chapels, Churches, and Cathedrals

Cyprus is one of the first Christian countries and until today Christianity is the dominant religion on the island. Thus, Cyprus is still a very traditional country. But, an interesting fact is the integration of the original culture and rituals of ancient religions with Christianity. Perhaps because it was one of the first Christian communities, … Continue reading Chapels, Churches, and Cathedrals

The island of Aphrodite

South Europe is known for the classical history of the once great ancient Greeks and Romans. Their great achievements are admired worldwide with millions of tourists visiting every day the well-known monuments of Acropolis and Colosseum. But today, instead of praising the greatness of Greece and Italy, I would like to introduce the birthplace of … Continue reading The island of Aphrodite

Sunshine and Ice-cream

The first things we usually think about England are the rain, the red buses and red telephone booths, the brick-houses and the Queen. It probably never crosses in our minds that in summer people can relax at long beautiful beaches, sunbath in the sun and cool down with an ice-cream. It is quite funny how … Continue reading Sunshine and Ice-cream

Empty island

Abandoned places have a unique ambience. They can be scary and creepy, yet exciting. When exploring an abandoned building everything suddenly looks suspicious. A key, a chair, a poster or a piano. You can't help yourself but think questions such as why, what, when or how. But, that's why it's so exciting. You never know … Continue reading Empty island

Mermaids and dolphins

It is no secret that I love the sea. Coming from Cyprus summer always meant blue sea, sunny days and watermelons. I never realised that not everyone went to the beach or collected sea shells during summer. Only when I lived abroad in colder countries, and countries that didn't even have sea I realised that … Continue reading Mermaids and dolphins

Castles

As children we grow up with beautiful stories of princesses, princes and enormous castles. One of my favourite stories as a child was Cinderella. Perhaps because she went from nothing to having everything that she ever wished for. I was also always fascinated by the majestic castles of fairy tales. Therefore, something that I love … Continue reading Castles

To celebrate summer here are some summer photos from different parts of the world!

Close your eyes and breath

Sometimes all you need is close your eyes and breath. A couple of years ago I had my first volunteering project in the majestic country of Switzerland. I was lucky enough that the project was located up in the mountains. The green landscapes with the snowy peaks as the background were absolutely mesmerising. And honestly … Continue reading Close your eyes and breath

Magical Prague

Although travel guides are the bible to travellers, undoubtedly photos give a little bit more of motivation to get that ticket to your dream destination.As I currently live in Brno, Czech Republic, I often venture to Prague for a weekend or a day trip. Nevertheless, the most majestic time to be in Prague is definitely … Continue reading Magical Prague

Christmas in Brno

Living abroad gives you the opportunity to explore and discover new places that soon can become your home. Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and I've been residing in this beautiful city for the last three years. As I always loved Christmas, my favourite time in this city is none other … Continue reading Christmas in Brno

Dream. Explore. Discover.

People often move abroad for educational, economic, or political reasons. Indeed, living abroad gives great opportunities both in daily and professional life. But today, I would like to explore the opportunities we gain from living abroad regarding discovering and learning. Currently, I live in the Czech Republic, and I have to say that it is … Continue reading Dream. Explore. Discover.

Snowfall

Travelling is all about experiencing new things. Cultures, customs, traditions, food, and lifestyle. In my case, during my first visit to Budapest, I got to experience winter.  Like everyone else, I associate snow with Christmas, Santa Claus, reindeers, decorative lights, and fresh-baked cookies. But during my time in Budapest in mid-January 2017, I got to … Continue reading Snowfall
