Conquering

Once upon a time people were conquering the world and the sea with massive battleships. Nowadays, the feeling of taking over the seas, and exploring new worlds is long gone. Or at least in the old way of colonising and gaining new territories. However, the feeling of winning over the wind and sail to otherContinue reading “Conquering”

Photo of the day: Bournemouth

Winter is getting closer and I feel nostalgic. I miss sunny days. Bournemouth is certainly one of my favourite cities, mainly because of the beach.

The experience of public transportation can vary from country to country or even from city to city.

Public transportation within a city were tinyContinue reading “Photo of the day: Public Transportation”

Bratislava is a hidden little gem in central Europe. It is Slovakia’s capital, and although it is perhaps one of the smallest capitals in Europe, it offers incredible sights.

English lifestyle

Growing up, depending on our environment, we gain certain stereotypes. Sometimes they are positive and others negative. As a child, I remember seeing England as the country of red. All the pictures of England would show the red buses, the red telephone booths, and the red-brick houses. Although these are indeed very stereotypical when inContinue reading “English lifestyle”

They give me the feeling of accomplishment and completeness. How about you what do you prefer? Sunrise orContinue reading “Sunset”
