The best moments from my journeys were never planned. I found myself in places I had never heard of and met the most amazing people by luck. The world is full of beauty and mystery and I believe the best way we can spend our lives is trying to explore as much of it as possible. Travelling, however, doesn’t have a recipe. There are no must-visit places and noone can tell you which are the top ten destinations this year. Continue reading “Burn your itinerary! Why Travelling is Not a Checklist.”

I Challenged Myself Every Day for 30 Days: Here is What Happened

Not so long ago I started an experiment and I called it the #30DaysChallenge.

I start writing a shopping list before any of the items get over in my household and things keep me up at night that I have to tackle next week. I got used to always knowing what would happen and to keep things under control.
