An adult fantasyContinue reading “The April Book Review”

Road Tripping through the Balkans part 1

I kicked off the summer of 2018 with a road trip through the Balkans, or well, part of them. Started in Bucharest, Romania, and headed west, crossed the border to Bulgaria at Vidin, then quickly got to Serbia where we had an overnight stay in a town called Kragujevac.  The next day, we headed towardsContinue reading “Road Tripping through the Balkans part 1”

The March Book Review

Photo by Tom Hermans on Unsplash The Alice Network I’ve started the month with a big reading mood that somehow managed to fade quickly, which resulted in only one read book in March. However, the book was great. I’m talking about a novel, called “The Alice Network”, written by Kate Quinn.  The description seemed promising and I hadContinue reading “The March Book Review”

My Story of Catania, Sicily

I went to Catania, Sicily (Italy) at the beginning of March 2018 with my partner and my baby sister (she’s over 20, but you know, forever baby sister). Why Catania? It was cheap. The plane tickets were around 50 euro, and the accommodation – an apartment that could fit up to 6 people was alsoContinue reading “My Story of Catania, Sicily”

My Story of Rome, Italy

Rome. Probably one of the best cities in the world. I finally managed to see it two years ago, in the middle of February and I loved it. I was there for only 4 days which I packed with all the tourist objectives I could think of, having the Google map of the city markedContinue reading “My Story of Rome, Italy”

The January Book Review

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue I’m hoping to read at least one book per month this year and so far I’ve managed. I’ve started with The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E.Schwab. Now, I’ve seen the name of the author several times before and thought I should have a go at one ofContinue reading “The January Book Review”

My Story of London, UK

or the best birthday ever! I’ve just turned 30 this week and since I didn’t get much of a celebration (with the pandemic still in full session) I couldn’t help but reminisce about previous birthdays and how I spent them. By far one of the best ones, if not THE best was my 28th birthday,Continue reading “My Story of London, UK”

19 Books I read in 2020 – how I traveled fictionally in Covid times

I’ve always enjoyed reading, and I prefer fiction for the way it makes me feel rather than the information conveyed. I enjoy wandering into a story, only to get back to real life a few hours later. I studied philology so I can be quite critical of literature, but I usually prefer no to. OneContinue reading “19 Books I read in 2020 – how I traveled fictionally in Covid times”
