If I could choose to be an animal, I would love to be a bird. Their freedom, and ability to see this beautiful planet from above, soaring over locations that man can hardly access, where humans have not touched/destroyed the environment - the idea thrills me! I love pandas 🐼, squirrels 🐿️, penguins 🐧 and many other animals, but I don't think their life is as exciting and enjoyable as a bird's life can be. And maybe because of that, I can't help it but always look for the highest place in every single town, and fall in love with the clouds when I am flying over a new destination. That might even explain by obsession with drones 🤷🏻♀️ ::: What about you? What animal would you choose to be?
When you try to be a bailarina, but you fail big time 🙈🙈🙈 ::: I could spend hours saying how great Iceland actually is. The nature, the unpopulated beautiful landscapes, the mountains, the snow, the stars, the northern lights (shame we didn't get to see them 😔). Instead, I will let the pictures speak for themselves ☺️ ::: This shot was taken on a spot close to the amazing, crowd free Gerðuberg Cliffs, in Snæfellsnes peninsula. It was one of my favourite places in Iceland (will post one picture from these cliffs in few weeks! ☺️).
My first post from Venice, one of the most popular and beautiful places in this world. It trully is a wonderful place! 🇮🇹 ::: Italy is a beautiful country, everyone knows that. It seems unfair how a country has so much beauty, and has literally everything you wish for: good food, good weather, beautiful landscapes. ⛰️ You want mountains surrounded by beautiful lakes? Italy got it. 🦀You want beaches to relax? Italy got it. 🏘️ You want to wander around colourful houses? Italy got ya. 🍕You want one of the best ice creams in the world, pizza, pesto, lasagna, pasta, cannelloni? Italy will not disappoint you. 🏛️ You love history, ruins, architecture, art? Welcome to Italy. 🛶 You dreamed about a city built over the water, with no cars, where the only way to commute is by foot or by boat? Italy made it come true! ::: Aff... How unfair but fabulous can you be Italiaaaaaaaaa! 👌🇮🇹
Can't believe we're past the middle of the month! How quick this year has been! It feels like I was in Brazil just few days ago, but Christmas is right around the corner soon. ::: For those who did not follow on stories, I will be visiting a secret destination in 3 weekends ☺️ You will find out where I am going on the day! 🤪 ::: For now, I leave you a picture from Pão de Açúcar, one of the most popular attractions in Rio de Janeiro. It has wonderful views over the town, an area where you can see little monkeys jumping around papaya trees, and many stands selling delicious açaí bowls. What else could you ask for? 😍
Yesterday's post I asked about what makes you happy in life, and I loved the answers. They were so varied! ::: Everyone has something different they value, and that's why we need to stop trying to understand others through our narrow point of view. Everyone is different, and just because I don't think the same way, that doesn't mean it is a wrong way of thinking. ::: I've been always like a bird. I like to be free. I love travelling the world, be self-employed, own my own **it and live different experiences, even if that means living away from the place I grew up. I love the type of relationships that give me space and freedom, but support me in my craziness. Other people I know would rather live a happy, settled life in the same small town they grew up in, working a fixed, stable job and spending their free time with family, preparing large dinners and barbeques. They are happy in their closed circle of friends, and would not imagine a week, not even a month away from them. Is there anything wrong with me or them? No! We're just happy living different types of life. And that's completely fine ☺️ ::: If the life you're living does not make you happy, change it. If what you do day by day brings a smile to your face, keep it, no matter what other people might say. There's only one being who knows your heart and can judge you, and even He loves you despite the goods and bads you do, so don't you worry about what anyone else has to say. 💕💕
What makes you trully happy? ❇️ Most people think about buying a house, a good car, having a wealthy life... But have you thought about the tiny things life offer us that trully, trully make us happy? For some is being with family, for others is travelling, for others is seing the sunset at a beach every now and then, dance, surf, play football, camping, spending time with people we love, pets we love, or doing something we love. There's so much beauty in life 🦋, and it's up to us to realize what makes us feel alive, and enjoy it as much as we can. Poor or rich, we can be happy if we find happiness in the little things 🦔 ::: What about you? What do you trully enjoy doing in life?
