Artist

Nowadays, artists often are being praised daily for their outstanding achievements. But, no matter where they are from or where we are from, I’m sure there are a couple of artists we all know. Their music, art, dance, or writing gives us motivation, happiness, or relief. However, the best is when we are having aContinue reading “Artist”

Yellow

Growing up in a semi-countryside ambience, as a child this time of the year was the best. The fields had long greenish wheat crops, colourful wildflowers and the trees beautiful blossoms. Furthermore, the weather was finally becoming sunnier and warmer. So naturally it was the best time to run wild into the fields and playContinue reading “Yellow”

Invisibility

The leading role always steals all the spotlights and attention. It is a role with a huge responsibility. A role filled with shiny clothes and bright smiles. Sometimes the smiles are fake. However, when surrounded by people, the big and bright smiles are genuinely happy. After all, a leading role cannot be a leader withoutContinue reading “Invisibility”

Live. Love. Laugh.

Understandably, many people are quite annoyed at the “quote” live, love, laugh. After all, usually these are words told be people who perhaps never needed someone to encourage them to live, love or laugh. However, life is not that simple. It’s not always easy to just live, to love or laugh. Nevertheless, here I amContinue reading “Live. Love. Laugh.”

Connection

Earlier today, I was listening to a live podcast on Instagram from my favourite Japanese singer. To be fair, I almost understood nothing, but still, I liked listening to his voice. His tone is so calming. While listening to him, I thought about how connected the world is. Here I am in Cyprus, connecting withContinue reading “Connection”

Freedom

When I was younger, I often wished that I wanted to be free. But one would wonder, what does it mean to be free. For instance, I was never locked up in any kind of way. I never had to run away from an abusive relationship, whether romantic, familial, or friendly. Moreover, I grew upContinue reading “Freedom”

The Return

Depending on each person’s lifestyle and views, 18 months can be considered a short or long period. After all, in 18 months, one can be pregnant, and then their child will already turn 1 year old, certainly, for a child’s life that is a very long time. Personally, 18 months don’t feel like a longContinue reading “The Return”

The Sun

The sun is always watching over us. Even when we feel cold and hopeless, the sun is there waiting for us to leave behind our negative and depressing thoughts. The sun is strong and mighty and burns everything within a short distance, yet the sun gives hope. It might be cold outside, but we feelContinue reading “The Sun”

Waves

Like the waves, I dreamed of being free, wild and fierce. I wished to be strong and unyielding. I wanted to be resistant and overwhelming. Yet, I am too sensitive. I yielded to all their commands and I cried like a baby. In the end, I left defeated only to get comforted by a scoundrel.Continue reading “Waves”

Running

Usually, travel stories are about exploring new places, visiting fantastic destinations, and learning more about other cultures and nations. However, most travellers will tell you the most unique and challenging experiences they had were during simple and ordinary tasks, such as using public transportation. Unfortunately, I have an issue with time. I seem to neverContinue reading “Running”

Kindness

With the arrival of the new year I went on a stroll around the city to relax and try to breath in the air of 2021. Hopefully, better air than last year. So far, it doesn’t feel that much better. Where I live, we are in tier 4 so more or less in lockdown, andContinue reading “Kindness”

Happy New Year!

Last year, I decided to follow my dreams and leave my cosy place in Czech Republic. But instead of going back home in Cyprus, I left for the UK. In the year of 2019, I had what you would describe as enlightenment. After many tears, I discovered my true passion and myself. Therefore, I wasContinue reading “Happy New Year!”

Empty Christmas

Last year, as I have decided to move from my place in Czech Republic to the UK, I didn’t go back home for Christmas. I had to finish packing and preparing myself for the big move. Therefore, even though it was not my first time to spend Christmas away from home, it was the firstContinue reading “Empty Christmas”

Lost

“Not all who wander are lost”. A quote often favoured by travellers, but what’s so wrong with being lost? We’ve all been there at some point of our lives, both in literal and metaphorical ways. And to be fair sometimes when travelling it be can be fun to get lost in narrow or huge andContinue reading “Lost”

Wind

So, what if dreams are only but a fantasy? The truth of life is only an illusion that can easily break with one breath, just like a cold breeze on a warm summer day. You lay on the beach embracing the warmth of the sand, and while you immerse yourself in the sound of theContinue reading “Wind”

Decorations and lights

Usually at his tie of the year, the whole world is getting prepared for Christmas. Christmas markets take over the cities and decorative lights bring a festive mood. Two years ago, I spent my Christmas holidays in Vienna, Austria and I think until now it is my favourite city during this time. As the CityContinue reading “Decorations and lights”

Lake District

Lake District is a mountainous region and national park with beautiful lakes, valleys and woodlands. It has amazing views and it is perfect for those who love hiking. There are several pathways all over the park but also there are many small towns one can visit and have a nice warm cuppa. If you areContinue reading “Lake District”

Photo of the day: Dublin

My trip to Dublin was very short and I didn’t have the chance to explore as much as I would like to. But it was one of the best weekends I had. It was the first time I went on a solo trip to a place I’ve never been to without any plan. I feltContinue reading “Photo of the day: Dublin”

Lights and Magic

I’ve already said this so many times, but I really can’t believe we are two months away from 2021. The shops have already started putting Christmas decorations, but in my mind, Christmas is still far away. But well, the reality is this. In less than two months, it will be Christmas time. Due to theContinue reading “Lights and Magic”

Kings and Queens

One thing I love about the UK (and most of Europe) is the gorgeous castles that adorn the entire country. Whether you are in a little town or a big city, there is at least one castle, or if not a castle, a huge mansion that could easily pass as a castle. In 2013 whenContinue reading “Kings and Queens”

Photo of the day: Sunderland

When I was 5, I went on my first journey abroad. Until today I remember the entire trip, from the feeling of being in an airport to being in the air and then landing, taking a train, and experiencing a completely different culture, language, and country. My first trip was in the UK, which nowContinue reading “Photo of the day: Sunderland”

Time is an illusion

I can’t believe that 8 months ago I was in London. At the beginning of 2020, I decided to move to the UK for a better future. But unfortunately, my timing couldn’t be worse. In March, I was still in London, and the situation was getting terrible. Luckily just before lockdown, I had moved toContinue reading “Time is an illusion”

Mikulov: a photo story

Mikulov is a small town in Breclav District in the South Moravian region and it borders Austria. It may be a small town but it has a significant part in Czech Republic’s history. In the more recent history of the country, Mikulov had a significant amount of Jewish population who during War World 2 wereContinue reading “Mikulov: a photo story”

Bournemouth Pier: a photo story

Sometimes you only have a short walk but you are so fascinated by the view you can’t stop taking photos. During my visit at Bournemouth I just couldn’t stop taking photos of the beautiful sea and the pier. It was a windy day but it was beautiful. Enjoy! Thanks for reading 😀

Nostalgia

I guess I feel nostalgic today. Perhaps the rainy weather in England makes me feel homesick. Mostly, I miss the warm temperatures of Cyprus and the beautiful sea. I miss going for a swim in the clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. As a child, my family would go to Cape Greco. That includesContinue reading “Nostalgia”
