Kalispera from a little island called Naxos in sunny Greece!
We are currently holidaying before we start work in Athens, where we have moved exactly a month ago – so far, we are loving it! The time slowed down, the fuel prices went up, it’s always sunny and the food is great! We also have our own flat for the first time ever after 2 years of living together and not having to share anything with anyone but each other is AMAZING! 🙂 <3
The time has come for us to leave our summer coats behind and get excited about our future adventures, as we have decided to move out of London and chase the dream of living in another country.
Over the years in London I have seen many people come and go. Whether it was their visa that expired or they wanted to travel or simply experience something else, they always write an amazing “leaving London” Facebook post. I always admired these and I can honestly say I have had a masterpiece or two crafted in my mind when waiting for the Uber to arrive at 3am after having our last night out in London. But suddenly I wake up and unlike what I thought, I can’t remember a word. 🙂
I hope you fulfil all the expectations and goals you have for 2017 and put smiles on the faces of everyone you come across!
I am not big on New Year’s resolutions or even NYE itself – people make mistakes and I think making mistakes is a good thing. It means you are challenging yourself, growing, changing, learning, loving and living. 🙂
Happy New Year – I hope it’s an amazing one!
P.S.: Where did you spend your New Year’s? We spent it in front of London Eye watching the fireworks!
It’s that time of the year again and what better way to get into the festive spirit, but to visit one of European’s biggest Christmas Villages located in the heart of London?
Winter Wonderland has opened it’s gates for the 10th year in a row with even more festive activities for 6 weeks of Christmas fun, bringing a smile to every grim Londoner’s face (that is if they don’t need to use Piccadilly line every day).
It’s our last day of work and we are heading to Amsterdam and Barcelona in 2 days – super excited. B-) I will try to post as much as I can, but it all comes down to wi-fi. If I don’t get to post anything. I’m sure I’ll post something on Instagram or Facebook. You can now just click on the button on top right corner or under “social me” and it will take you there. There is also an Instagram feed on the right side of the page. 🙂
But before that it’s Ios time (and not the operating system)! 🙂
I am having a cup of tea while waiting for my laptop to turn on. It seems lately the sky has been covered in a thick blanket of fog. The air is cool and crisp on this very day and it takes me back to my first night in London. I take another sip of tea and it transports me to another place – I quickly realized I have underestimated the cold in England as it crept under my clothes, spreading across my skin. My teeth were gently chattering and my hands were shaking trying to hold on to the old Samsung phone that was clearly leading me to the wrong address. Not long after realizing that the battery died. I wrapped my thin coat around me tighter and looked at a printed sheet with a map on it. ‘Ok, I can do this’ I remember saying to myself. And not long after, I made it.
I remember sitting in our living room looking through the window – it was sunny. In London.
‘I should do something’ I thought to myself. I took the day off work to spoil myself and it was only 11 am. I really wanted to go for a nice walk or a hike. I remember thinking for a little bit – of all the hills surrounding my parent’s house back home – how I wish I could’ve gone there. I stared for a bit longer, but couldn’t think of a nice place I could go to – not one that is not somewhere I’d have to commute for ages first. I went back to doing something else and neglect the rare sun in London.
As promised for the Slovenians wanting to move to UK out there, here is my two cents on “soft landing” in the UK. Beware, this is not the story of how I woke up on a bus in Zone 6 after a crazy night out, this one is extremely boring.
I wanted to make it easy for me – as easy as possible. There was a Slovenian travel agency that offered me that. They suggested Britbound to me. Unfortunately, they have done more damage to me than good. As I am saying this – please mind, I am writing this from a perspective of a Slovenian citizen. Our flatmate is Australian and they have been super helpful with helping him.
If you’re a food lover… this entry has nothing to do with food. 🙂 Let’s start with something… I suck at schedules. I finished working between 20 and 21 and I was up till 1 and when I finally finished this entry, it was already Thursday. More luck next time Nastja. -.- How do you like the new theme? I love it, I just want to change the colors… I asked for a “girlish” look and this is what I got. It’s like a teen rave party, but we’ll fix that, let’s just make fun of me until. 🙂 I decided to write about our country, because I want other readers to get to know our country and see it for something more than Slovakia. Because it’s not Slovakia. Seriously, it’s not. Just stop. 😀 I am a lucky girl, because I love sports and I work in tourism, so I get to see a lot of places. Being away has made me realize what I have at home. I am going to talk about the places I’ve visited and the ones I loved. There are many more and also – I only picked some. Not everything can fit in one post – we may be small, but we have a lot to show. 🙂
