Secrets of the Adriatic Sea

The sun is rising. I open my eyes and sit up to see what the situation around is. I do that many times a night when the sun rises and also anytime anyone passes by. I keep myself aware and manage to prevent situations I do not want to happen. This time, however, I pause. Looking at the sunrise, I notice that something is different than it was yesterday. Or, it probably was there yesterday evening too, but it was not visible, and I get very emotional about the sight.

I am on a Journey

Again? Constantly?

It is no longer a secret that Nicol and I bumped into each other in Croatia. I could write a thick book about our meeting. After a couple of days after our first encounter she asked me “can I join you?”

Up, down, and up again

I have gone through hell and hit the bottom. Times have been gloomy and I have felt crappy.

Great, January 2016 is here!

So, finally, I can say that I started my journey last year. I can also say that I’ve stepped on three continents during the journey. Curiously, I can even say that during the few past months, when I haven’t done much of paddling, actually, numerous new things have entered my life nonetheless.

I’m not going to say now what was good and what bad. After all, things always have to sides to them. What’s more, it would be only my point of view through which I see the world around myself. Personally, I prefer to look on the positive side of things, when it’s my subjective life-view, why not make it a nice one? Read more
