Look after your inner child

When I was 10 years old, I thought that people in the age of 30+ are serious, well established and do grown up stuff like going to work or driving a car. Man, little did I know about people in their 30ties by that time. Now I’m 35 myself and sometimes I feel like 7 or 16. Although I do the grown-up stuff like going to work or driving a car, I put all the effort in to keep my inner child alive. Otherwise, life would be so boring.

A happily ever after

Last week my friend broke up with her boyfriend after six years of being together. There were marriage and happily ever after plans but didn’t work out. Now my friend constantly hears: oh you wasted six years of your life and now you have to start from scratch. If you ask me, it is better to split after six years than after sixteen or sixty and find happiness somewhere else rather than suffer in an unhappy relationship. Sooo… what does a happily ever after look like?

Manage Time

I don’t have time to…  do something, read a book, go to the gym, travel etc.  Not having time is the most common excuse if we don’t want to or can’t do something. Bullshit, there is always time and if you don’t have time, find it. I’m not a fan of wasting time, procrastination or pushing stuff forever. Can share with you some tips and tricks on how to manage time 😉

Rent a car

Lately my friend AP asked me for destination tips for solo travellers, condition passport free travel. I recommended Sicily as there is stuff to see, nice beaches, good food and fabulous wine. Told her that the best way to see the island is to rent a car. She was like aaahhh I’m a bit of a cheapskate to rent a car but think it’s more convenient than wasting time on busses. She had a point.

Tops and flops – places

Before each trip I have some kind of expectations of the place I’m going to visit. I always hope for good food, cool sights and generally a nice sightseeing atmosphere. Sometimes I get positively surprised as some places offer a jaw dropping sightseeing experience than I’ve expected and the food is absolutely awesome. Another time it’s exactly the opposite. I expect a BIG WOW as all the stories I read and documentaries I watched promise heaven on earth but reality turns out to be a bit mehhhh. Did a ranking of places which turned out to be better than expected and places which were a disappointment. Think the disappointment list can arouse some indignation 😉

What do travellers do when they don’t travel?

They go to work to earn money they can spend on travel – is the simple answer. Most of the time they spend fantasising about countries they want to visit or activities they want to do during travel, hence they are more motivated to go to office and do a good job. At least I am 😀 Every time I come back from an adventure I keep my mind occupied with travel plans, nice memories from the last trip, my hobbies and also exploring the city I live in. Thing is I also really like my everyday job so going to work is not an inconvenience, it’s spending quality time developing new skills working with fabulous people and to be honest enjoying what I do. Soooo the time between one trip and another is a different type of adventure.

Diving, how to get started

Found on the internet, dive humour what different people think how scuba diving looks like 😛

Last time I raved how fantastic the diving experience is and what my dive drives are. However, you need to start somewhere, which is the most difficult bit if you don’t know where. First time I heard about diving was from my bestie PRS, she is always an inspiration 🙂

We were in the Philippines and she wanted to do a diving certification there. I went with her to one of the dive shops and man, I have to say the diving instructor was a mix between Bear Grylls and Steve Irwin. Anyway, firstly diving didn’t appeal to me until Kleo, or as I like to call him – my Dive Guru showed me some cool underwater pictures. He also told me which reliable dive shop to choose if I wanted to get certified. Two days after the meeting with Kleo, I called him saying – guess what? I’m starting my diving course in three weeks 🙂
