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 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 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 [...]
International Travel: Living a Life without Regret All regrets are mistakes, but not all mistakes are regrets. By that I mean only when you judge yourself for making a mistake can a mistake become a regret. Bronnie Ware (author of The Top Five Regrets of the Dying) once said, “I know a lady who wanted to travel internationally, but her husband didn’t allow her to do it. After her husband had been sent to a nursing home, she started to travel in her 80s alone. Yet a few weeks later, she was sent to a nursing home as well due to [...]
Travel in Europe & Learn from the Europeans: How Europeans Rejuvenate Themselves It is said that Europeans are very good at looking after themselves, partly because the rich culture in Europe gives people abundant resources in this regard, and partly because most Europeans are health-conscious people. Therefore, when you travel in Europe, you might learn a thing or two from them instantly. It turns out that the majority of fast food restaurants come from America, whereas Europeans generally prefer a healthy lifestyle. Statistics show that the average lifespan of Europeans is longer than that of Americans in 2019. Apparently, European people [...]

Don’t miss out on street food in Ukraine! Popular Ukrainian street foods include many types of dumplings and stuffed buns, e.g. pyrizhky, perohy and varenyky (they are either fried or boiled) and served with a sour cream dill sauce.

Ukrainian Travel and Lifestyle: Radical Self-care Some international travelers get clogged pores and breakouts on their cheeks, even though they still exfoliate as usual. Further analysis reveals that any cleansers that include these ingredients can dry the skin or clog your skin ruthlessly: mineral oils, talc, petrolatum and any products containing petroleum. An international traveler needs an oil-free and non-pore-blocking moisturizer. Because the European continent can be quite dry when it comes to climate, your skin may feel slightly dry when you are there. Therefore, you would be well-advised to use a safe product such as Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer. [...]
