The Girl Who Wanted to Grow a Lotus Flower

I’ve never seen a lotus flower until January 2013, when me and my best friend took a trip to Thailand. It was quite a challenge, to make that trip happen, from her mother’s telling her it was a dangerous place to finding a good bargain. But when you really want something to happen, it does.

Decisions – the Hardest Thing of All

You know what’s the hardest thing of all for me? Searching for opportunities. No, not hiking tall scary mountains, going into the cage full of lions, starting each day in a new place, and not even being on time. It’s searching for these damn opportunities.

Suddenly Off to Barcelona

That surely wasn’t planned at all. In fact, I almost put up with the thought that traveling and I will have to take a break from each other. But most fortunately we were reunited, all thanks to my mom. Basically, she just stood in the middle of the kitchen, hands on her hips, and stated…

Bulgaria, Pt. 2: Waves and Other Offtopic

Sometimes, when I come to the beach, or just let myself relax for a moment, I have a feeling that some little nosy minions (like the ones from Despicable Me) open a journal and start writing there, pushing one another away, and all this inside my head.

Hello World!

That’s how all these blogs start, isn’t it? Nevermind, I’m not here to grumble. At any subject. I’m just trying to sort all the things spinning in my head at the moment, as well as to figure out what should my blog really look and sound like. But before I started, I’d like to introduce…
