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”

Shades of Green

Green is a colour we should all love. It is the colour of nature. The colour of trees, bushes, plants, and earth. Without it, we simply cannot live. It provides us oxygen, water, food, and shelter. However, humans are greedy and forgetful. The earth has given us and still gives us so many blessings. Yet,Continue reading “Shades of Green”

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”

Fear

They say homo sapiens, or humans, if you prefer, are comparatively vulnerable in terms of physicality. However, looking at our history vulnerability is a complex topic. Today I was looking through my old journals, diaries and notebooks from elementary school till now. While searching I found an old unfinished poem which I think still fitsContinue reading “Fear”

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.”

Metallic Chair

A little something I wrote while waiting for my flight in Heathrow, London which perhaps many of you experienced before. Especially now because of COVID. No matter a person’s personality, or dreams, and hopes, a journey to another place is always thrilling. For many people, flights can be scary yet, everyone gets an exhilarating feelingContinue reading “Metallic Chair”

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”

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”

The Top 5 Beaches in Cyprus

Lately, I’ve been experimenting and trying different writing styles and sharing my feelings or thoughts on certain issues. So, I haven’t been really posting any travel stories, guides or photo stories. Therefore, since I am finally back to my beautiful country of Cyprus, I decided to show you the five best beaches on the islandContinue reading “The Top 5 Beaches in Cyprus”

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”

Modern Mythology

Hello everyone:) I hope you’ve all been well and safe. Recently, I decided to try a new project that I’ve always wanted and today I managed to release it. My new project is a podcast called Modern Mythology. On each episode there will be the introduction of a mythological figure from Cyprus, Greece or theContinue reading “Modern Mythology”

The Light

“The light will guide you to the end of the tunnel.” This is a quote I often come upon in all kinds of situations. However, sometimes I find it quite annoying. How do I know the end of the tunnel will be good enough? Indeed, the light indicates life, but at times life can beContinue reading “The Light”

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”

Choices and Opinions

When travelling, it can’t be helped but encounter people with different opinions, beliefs, and life choices. Naturally, according to one’s background, people develop different ideologies and life paths. However, sometimes, I wonder if and when I should interfere with someone’s beliefs. The past year I got to live and make friends with people from differentContinue reading “Choices and Opinions”

Noise

While sitting quietly in your car and patiently waiting for the green light, your mind can travel to a thousand places. But most likely, you’re thinking, “How did this end up to be my life?”. In the background, you can hear the radio’s soft music, and gradually you start wondering and observing your surroundings. TheContinue reading “Noise”

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”

Cyprus: Top 3 Monasteries

Cypriots have always been religious people. In ancient times, they believed and worshipedtheir Great Mother Goddess. She was the goddess of fertility, life, and nature. With the Greeks’ arrival, the Cypriots shifted their goddess’s love to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Then Christianity arrived on the island. Cyprus is one of the firstContinue reading “Cyprus: Top 3 Monasteries”

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”

Breathe. Feel. Dance.

The wind is blowing, the trees are dancing calmly to the soothing beat of a waltz, and I am lost.People tend to create beautiful dreams of their desired future. Their greedy minds always create a perfect-like path covered with rose petals. However, reality often is cruel. So, here I stand, lost amongst the dancing treesContinue reading “Breathe. Feel. Dance.”

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”

Diversity

Recently I got a comment from a friend about how amazing it is to come from a country with such a diverse culture. I was so confused by that because I never considered my country diverse. When I asked him, what he meant by it, apparently, he thought our culture is very mixed, thus veryContinue reading “Diversity”

Hence,Continue reading “Top 7 Cyprus: travel like a local”

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”

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”

Beyond

My favourite word in Greek is άνθρωπος (anthropos). Some of you may recognise it from the word anthropology which means the science of humans. Therefore, anthropos means human. However, in the Greek language it has a deeper meaning. It combines the two words ανώ and ορώ which mean up and see. So, the word canContinue reading “Beyond”

Books and Travel

Since I was a child I loved reading books. Perhaps because I would always see my mum with a book in her hand I grew to have the same habit. Nowadays, books are both a way to travel and my favourite pastime while travelling. with a book you can travel to magical or futuristic worlds,Continue reading “Books and Travel”

Movement

Movement can have many meanings and in any way you interpret it it has a powerful impact. A train can take you away to any place you desire or even away from your ordinary life, or your dreadful environment, or it can take you back home, to your family and friends. A dancer’s movements canContinue reading “Movement”

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.

Colours

A trend I often see on social media is the quotation of famous sayings on photos such as selfies, landscapes or group photos. It’s quite funny how we need to rely on others to express our feelings, or how we want to look smart by saying meaningless words (to us at least). However, I cannotContinue reading “Colours”

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.

Photo of the day: Public Transportation

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”

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”

If you are an art and a sea lover, then thereContinue reading “Photo of the day: Sculpture Park”

Wild and Fierce

As an island, Cyprus has many stories and myths surrounding the sea. Both in ancient history and folk stories, the sea was often described as a woman. In today’s world it may be seem as sexist but indeed the sea was either beautiful, calm, and divine, or strong, fierce, and wild. I believe the seaContinue reading “Wild and Fierce”

Temples, Amphitheatres, and Castles

Since I was a child I loved history and it was one of my favourite subjects in school. Naturally, I am more familiar with the history of my region’s which is the Middle East and East Mediterranean.

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”

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.

Furthermore, Troodos has hundredsContinue reading “Photo of the day: Mount Troodos”
