Spreepark Berlin—A Tale of an Entertainment Park

Tuesday, April 25, 2017



I still miss it. I'm refraining from going through old photos and blog posts because why put salt on the wound? And this one, this wound, guys, is real. What I keep doing, though, is checking prices to Berlin from airports close by... well, yes, 6 hours is close by... sort of. Springs in Berlin are no less than magical and I want to say goodbye before I move overseas—at least a temporary goodbye, because that's one of those love stories that never ends, y'know? Especially because, as a friend put it: "you might find it expensive now but once you start making money at the end of the world it'll seem crazy cheap and you'll regret not having gone". True! So here I am, making plans and lists of things I want to see again and visit again and eat again. (Currywurst and doner kebab, I'm looking at you!) 

Weekend Reads #77

Saturday, April 22, 2017



Hi there! The delay in the #WeekendReads is caused by the delay of my yesterday' post (worth checking out if you're going to Italy anytime soon). I'm also working on some new content from my travels from last year and even before (gulp!), so that'll be coming your way soon! In the meantime, I'm waiting for news about some trips that may happen in June and beyond, so keep your fingers crossed for me, pretty please! What are you up to this weekend? I hope you're not freezing like we in Serbia are, and here are some links you might enjoy. 


If You're Going To Siena, Italy

Friday, April 21, 2017



I have mixed feelings about Siena. It’s a city in Tuscany, Italy, and the whole Tuscany is beautiful, therefore the conclusion would be Siena is, too. While we’re at it, Italy is beautiful. A fellow blogger from Serbia commented on my Instagram back then that it was her favorite town it Italy, but I just didn't feel it. Would I recommend it? Definitely—but bear in mind that this has more to do with the fact that I advocate going wherever one hasn’t been yet (and that’s what I do, anyway). So, here's what you should know if considering visiting Siena.

Siena is a medieval city that used to be a wealthy city-state during the Middle Ages, and its historic centre has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. It’s famous for its arts, medieval cityscape and the Palio, a horse race held twice a year around the central piazza, Il Campo. Have you ever been to Siena? I'd love to hear, especially if you loved it! What did I do wrong? 😉

Weekend Reads #76

Friday, April 14, 2017





Hello there, what are your plans for the weekend? My sister is about to arrive home in an hour and then we'll dive deep into baking and egg coloring, guided by Mom's instructions, that is, until she decided we're way too grown up for needing advice and guidance. Oh, the usual. :) I wish you a great Easter weekend, and here are some fun links from around the web!

Stuff No One Told Me

Monday, April 10, 2017



These are old news if you live on the Internet. However, no matter how old, they're still SO good and I think they deserve a share and a mention on this blog. Alex Noriega is an artist who, in his own words, started the blog Stuff No One Told Me "as a way of trying to find what I was doing wrong. I wanted to put on paper all that I had learned in life as simple as possible and try to see if what was happening around me made sense. It didn't". I mean, an artist with a sense of humor and everyday struggles we all face? I'm in! His characters are flawed and worry about the exact same things we do, they make mistakes and feel bad about it and overthink it and that's why it's easy to fall in love with them. Check them out if you haven't already! 

Weekend Reads #75

Friday, April 7, 2017



Hi! You might have noticed the absence of Weekend Reads... or not. Both is fine. At some point, almost two months ago, I got one minor and one major translation gig that didn't allow browsing the Internet, let alone writing a Weekend Reads post. Apparently, as I noted on Twitter (only worth checking out if you understand Serbian), why hasn’t anybody ever told us it’s impossible to work, keep your home neat and clean, cook healthy lunches every day and have social life?! I know there are people in the blogosphere who brag about doing everything by thorough organization, but I think they’re just full of bullshit. It’s just impossible. I’m sorry, you’re lying, and do you even have a job? I don’t and I’m really struggling.

Sorry for the mini-rant. After the gigs were done, I got into a sort of imaginary cocoon that meant no work on the blog at all. I know it happens to me here and there and all the bloggers would tell you consistence is key, and I do agree, but honestly, I enjoyed the time off the blog. If nothing else, now I have both ideas for new posts and the will to write them, so hopefully the big break was a good thing to do! Anyway, here are your weekend reads for this week. 😊

Three Months Later—Where I Am With My New Year's Resolutions (ed. 2017)

Wednesday, April 5, 2017



I feel like I always start these posts with OMG it’s already ____ (fill in with the name of the month) I cannot believe the time is going by so quickly blah blah blah. On one hand, yeah, it’s hard to believe it’s actually April (and I’m still in my home country, as my plan was to move some time ago and it still isn’t happening), but on the other hand, it means three months have passed since NYE and, yeah, this time it feels like three months. Maybe because I’m unemployed a freelancer? I feel like days are passing by faster when they’re filled, and now I’m kind of responsible for filling them, and it’s not really going the way I had wanted.

Anyway… it’s time for my quarterly check-in to see how I’ve managed to stay on track with my yearly resolutions, and if I have in the first place. With some of those I’m super happy, with others… not so much. But there’s still room for change, and time, obviously, since I’ve got almost ¾ of the year left!

Why I want to attend LEAP Summit Zagreb?

Wednesday, March 29, 2017



The important thing is to pay attention to the deadline, they said. Why of course, it always is, that’s why I bookmarked the page well in advance. And then life happened. A first time visitor, just like you, would shrug and say “well, she didn’t want it hard enough”—but they wouldn’t be right. I will try and prove you wrong a day too late. 

LEAP Summit is a global conference on innovation, IT and modern technologies, entrepreneurship, career development and life changing stories, as they describe themselves. LEAP stands for Learn, Engage, Act, and Progress; and I really feel the importance of these words for my personal and professional development. Sounds a bit cliché, doesn’t it? Well, read on.


Weekend Reads #74

Saturday, February 4, 2017



Hello there! Sorry for the lack of Weekend Reads last week, but things have been hectic around here, and still kind of are. Two things you didn't know about me: I hate moving and I love routine. Coming from someone who moved 16 times in the previous 10 years—enough reasons to be hating it, right?! Actually, I don't hate the going-somewhere-new (or old!) part; it's the packing that's driving me crazy. Apparently, no matter how much I try to not hoard unnecessary items, I always end up with impossible amounts of things. Of everything. So that's why it's hard to read as much online as on regular days... but anyway, I managed to find some interesting reads for you this week. Enjoy!

Why I Will Never Hire A Life Coach—And Why I Think You Shouldn’t Too

Monday, January 30, 2017



I was in my early teens when I first heard the term, and it sounded downright  silly. A life coach? Someone who will teach you how to go through life? Yes, life is scary sometimes, if not all the time. Yes, I can be the most clueless person when it comes to what I should do next—in terms of whether I should go to grad school, take down that job offer, text a boy. Buy this or that. But does one really need a life coach?
