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

2020-01-17T14:48:43+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 [...]

2020-01-11T16:26:00+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.

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

2020-01-05T08:25:28+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 [...]

Ukrainian Travel and Lifestyle: Radical Self-care

2019-12-10T10:27:12+00:00

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. [...]

But “immigrants” and “refugees” aren’t moving to Ukraine because Ukraine isn’t a First-World country. Note that those who pose as [...]
