Lazy Cat

Sometimes I feel so jealous of cats. They can be lazy, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. That’s just their life. Furthermore, they can sleep and be lazy anywhere they want. Just look at this little lion here. He found the perfect spot on a sharp rock gazing at the beautiful sea. IContinue reading “Lazy Cat”

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”

Winter Wonderland

It is already December, and I can feel the winter bracing me tightly. I am not a big fan of cold weather, but I have to admit snow and cold have their beauty. It never snows in my hometown, and in general, in Cyprus, it only snows in the mountains and perhaps only for aContinue reading “Winter Wonderland”

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. I guess if you can’t go to a hot country with beautiful beaches (like this year) it is the best option for swimming and relaxing at the white sandy beach.Continue reading “Photo of the day: Bournemouth”

Photo of the day: Public Transportation

The experience of public transportation can vary from country to country or even from city to city. Sometimes you encounter luxurious buses and trains from a futuristic movie and others you go back in time at least half a century. In Ghana it was quite the unique experience. Public transportation within a city were tinyContinue reading “Photo of the day: Public Transportation”

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”

Photo of the day: Mount Troodos

Mount Troodos is the tallest mountain in Cyprus. In summer, it gives cool temperatures and most Cypriots escape there to avoid the scorching hot weather. In winter the top of the hills are covered with white snow and everyone can enjoy building a snowman, playing snowball or even skiing and snowboarding. Furthermore, Troodos has hundredsContinue reading “Photo of the day: Mount Troodos”

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”

Photo of the day: Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a magical city, and during Christmas time, the magic comes to life. It is a beautiful city. In general, Scotland is absolutely fantastic. While in Edinburgh, I felt I was in a different country. The architecture, the streets, the people, everything felt different from England, but in a good way. I believe EdinburghContinue reading “Photo of the day: Edinburgh”

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.

Photo of the day: Lisbon

Lisbon is one of my favourites cities in Europe. I felt that Lisbon is a good balance for a luxurious and a casual vacation. Strolling around the street of the city you get to experience the beauty of the colourful azulejos in every building and the ordinary life of the people. At Lisbon you canContinue reading “Photo of the day: Lisbon”

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”

Ordinary Life

A few years ago I participated at a volunteering project in a small city of South Korea. I spent almost three weeks in the fantastic country of South Korea yet I didn’t had much time to explore the more touristic places of the country. However, I was able to experience the country of the simpleContinue reading “Ordinary Life”

Photo of the day: Krakow

A few yeas ago I went on a solo trip to Krakow, Poland for a weekend. It was a very short trip but it was fantastic. Krakow is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been to. It is a very historical city in Poland and thankfully compare to others many historical monuments are stillContinue reading “Photo of the day: Krakow”

Sunset

There are two different types of people in this world, sunrise lovers and sunset lovers. I am one of the latter. I love sunsets. It represents the end of a day thus, the end of a cycle. They give me the feeling of accomplishment and completeness. How about you what do you prefer? Sunrise orContinue reading “Sunset”

My journey of exploring, discovering, understanding, and maturing, started in the city of Leeds in the United Kingdom. I lived in Leeds as a university student, and I had four fantastic years there.

Photo of the day: Home

Lately, I’ve been feeling nostalgic and homesick. Last December I took the decision to leave my place in Czech Republic and move to the United Kingdom. Therefore, I didn’t go back home to Cyprus for Christmas to pack everything and prepare for my departure from Brno, the city I was living at for 3 years.Continue reading “Photo of the day: Home”
