It’s my birthday today! I’m one of those people that loveee celebrating their birthdays. And I’m always making a few celebrations. One in Croatia. One in the Netherlands. One in… Well, you get the point. To me, my birthday is a day when I’m reflecting to the year behind me. I love to celebrate good things. And to learn from the bad ones. Although, I had a feeling like this year was pretty calm and not many things were happening, when I started writing this blog post, I realised it wasn’t like that at all. It was quite busy, and…

But, then, life happened, and I didn’t really have time to update you with anything. So, here is a little personal update, with some things I was busy with lately. And with my summer plans.

Tea in Fort Nizwa in Oman

I know, I know… It’s a middle of February already, but it’s never too late to write one of those ‘New Years resolutions’ posts. I always love to reflect on a previous year and make some decisions for the next one. After some changes in my private life lately, I’ve decided to work more on line in 2019.

After all the Christmas festivities and a New Year’s celebration, January is always a little bit depressing for me. You should take down your Christmas tree, the weather is usually poor and days are short and dark. So, I decided that this year I will overcome January depression by traveling half the month. And it worked really well! Paris – Solo trip The year started with three days in Paris. It was a solo, sort of a business trip on which I was researching life of Impressionists in Paris. I went to some of the places they were living in…
