A Message from Eastern Europe: Wisdom in Ukrainian Tourism

2020-02-26T03:27:31+00:00

A Message from Eastern Europe: Wisdom in Ukrainian Tourism Because I don’t speak Russian / Ukrainian perfectly, I sometimes get confused – people in Ukraine misunderstand me at times as I’m living in Ukraine right now. But I’ve learned a lot from being misunderstood. Please let me explain. Never complain, never explain. Sometimes explaining takes far more effort than it’s worth. When I am misunderstood by someone, I don’t explain further unless it’s absolutely necessary. This is a very important learning while living in Ukraine without speaking Ukrainian or Russian very well. Before moving to Ukraine, I also ended relationships and [...]

Traveling in Europe: Learn, Live and Love Fully

2020-02-26T03:28:02+00:00

Traveling in Europe: Learn, Live and Love Fully Traveling in Europe is an exhilarating experience because the European continent is full of energy – it is best characterized by rich history and culture. Learn to cook in the European way. Currently, the chicest cooking method is the sugar-free way: Even cookies don’t have sugar in some European countries. This is a recipe for Avocado Double-Choc Cookies that I learned while I was traveling in Europe: 5 ingredients (makes 10): 1 organic egg ¾ cup mashed ripe avocado (1 small avocado) ½ cup raw cacao powder ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 50g [...]

Food for Thought: A Year in Eastern Europe (Ukraine Travel Journal)

2020-02-26T03:29:04+00:00

Food for Thought: A Year in Eastern Europe (Ukraine Travel Journal) I’ve lived in Ukraine for a year now. This experience has given me a different perspective, so I’ve decided to write down my thoughts on this trip today. No matter how life treats you, shifting the perspective makes all the difference. Matthew Hussey once said, “Everyone’s life is painful. You are not alone.” Indeed, we are only human beings, and pain is inevitable in life, but suffering is optional. Moreover, what might appear as a storm to one individual can seem a blessing to another person. Living in Ukraine, I’ve [...]

What I Learned from My Trip to Europe

2020-02-26T03:30:30+00:00

What I Learned from My Trip to Europe After reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, I decided to travel alone and discover another version of myself. I went to Europe and stayed there for six months. Here are my findings and learning. The choice is mine; my life is my own. Before I left for Europe, I wasn’t in the ideal state – I just ended a highly stressful relationship; I was looking to change my career; I desperately needed a break from the reality. Well, when I married my partner in 2011, I was young and still trying to figure [...]

Travel in Europe: How to Let Yourself Be Happier

2020-02-26T03:30:59+00:00

Travel in Europe: How to Let Yourself Be Happier A European travel agent once said, “The most common regret shared by people nearing death is ‘I wish that I had let myself be happier’. Actually, many senior citizens in their 70s and 80s are travelling to Europe because they don’t want to have that regret. Of course, it’s never too late to enjoy life, but in my view, people probably should travel when they are young – when they are more energetic, because when people enjoy life earlier, they can always savor those beautiful experiences for the rest of their lives [...]
