In my younger days I used to have a diary style blog for years but I stopped writing it at some point. When I had my two kids I dropped out of work and stayed home for several years. During that time I kind of lost myself a bit and became mainly just a mum. And 2020 I decided to revive this part of me and start writing our great travel memories down. I’m hoping to have written most stuff out by the time we start traveling again.

Unfortunately some of these pictures featured here are super old and frankly quite embarrassing now. As many women I have always struggled with my looks so pulling faces was my coping mechanism. Now writing these posts I realise how stupid it is to hate yourself continuously for years. So writing this blog is super healing for me and I’ve learned to love myself one picture at a time.

I used to live with a motto ‘I don’t need a man to hold me down’ and have great ideas of travels. I would jump quite sincerely to new travels and adventures without great research or plans. Once I met my husband, I realised that he’s not so much holding me down, more like helping me to do more travels and see awesome places. He’s the research and travel planning department of this blog.

Me and husband are both travel minded and always planning the next place to visit. So I hope you’ll enjoy my random stories around the world.
