There are [22] stories from my trip: WorldNomads Scholarship


I AM A PASSENGER

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [197]

I’m sitting on a crowded bus and we’re driving into the night. All sorts of chit-chat is taking place with alternating volumes, and there’s an expanding smell of sweat which in some cases mixes quite well with a small amount of perfume ... Read more >

Zagreb

CROATIA | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [211]

It felt really pleasant to start sightseeing very early in the morning (6AM). Before sunrise, people at the Dolac market have started putting up their stalls, while I was sipping on my coffee trying to recover from a dizzy spell probably attributed ... Read more >

Salzburg

AUSTRIA | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [237]

If Austria is a nice creamy cake, then Salzburg is definitely a bright fat red cherry on top. As the train was whizzing through the Austrian countryside I couldn't help but wonder why I haven't visited this beautiful country earlier. Mountains everywhere, ... Read more >


Of comfort and miserliness

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [125]

Ever since I bought myself this new Mac, I don’t think much of theater anymore. Or books for that matter. Or tv. Or cinema. Or the company of people. Aah, this device. I must say it’s a divine invention. First of all I’m saving the ... Read more >


Journey's end

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [100]

I’ve been lying here motionless for about a hundred years on the burning sands or on the freezing snow, and I suppose I do not think of anything. This is when I feel completely free. But then I’m brought back by the sound of an airplane ... Read more >


Memories of summer holidays

ROMANIA | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [91]

My nicest memories of summer holidays are of the ones which I spent at my grandmother’s place. When I was very young my parents took me and my sister to our grandmother’s village. I remember so many great things about those warm and sunny ... Read more >

Scenes

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [134]

You know, when you browse through a hundred thousand photos a day on social networks...if only you would hit the pause button and contemplate those images, and put your own words and impressions next to them. Images become stories. So, this time there ... Read more >


The fisherman

ROMANIA | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [85]

When I was a kid, one of my favourite books was The Boys of Paul street written by Ferenc Mora. I felt that I could identify myself with many of the characters, and I secretly wished to have my own “grund”. The novel is about schoolboys ... Read more >

Monkey bath in the hot springs of Jigokudani

JAPAN | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [204]

Splash. Splash. Two wild monkeys dive into a hotspring next to me in the beautiful mountains of Jigokudani. The English translation of this place is Hell's valley, and somehow I do not have any burning desires to leave from here. This feels more ... Read more >

Bear lake Zen

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [197]

On May 27, 1875 there was a cloudburst, forming a hole on the bottom of which the hay brought by water deposited and produced a dead end. Water has accumulated and has made a lake. Thus we can say that the lake appeared both by landslide and by sealing.... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [124]

  There are many people who still live or survive in the villages scattered accross Transylvania. I must say, that they are proud people. Proud of their culture, knowledge of crafts and their heritage. They don't have much, but what they ... Read more >

in and out of Agadir

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [309]

I had certain small reservations about my trip to Morocco before I left. Mainly because I read too many scare stories on the internet about the increased amount of hustlers, beggars and all sorts of other funny people. I’ve also read about ... Read more >

Visiting her

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [133]

Looking through the windows puts a smile on my face. In one room a man is ironing his shirts, in another a cat is stretching on the top of the dressing table, and in yet another a woman wearing black stockings is practicing tango. As if I would’... Read more >


Journey to the “ Cauldron of waters”

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 21 Nov 2014 | Views [265]

Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on a wing, onwards the sailors cry ...so I made a dramatic entrance onto the Isle of Skye through Kyle of Lochalsh. A while back, in a Youtube video I have seen Ray Mears, my favorite outdoorsman visit Loch Coruisk. He ... Read more >
