something that needs nothing

hold ideas lightly

But it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Contrary to what we’ve been told, life is simple. We complicate matters with our choices.

Hahahah, yes.

One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.

I either have become prettier, or my perception of myself has changed in the last year. Either way - I’m in split, Croatia and I have brand new ink ❤️

Skopje to Belgrade

Met a Norwegian at my hostel that was on the same train - it was nice to have someone to sleep on.

I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles.

It goes like this

Sometimes the least expected happens and you feel like you are home.

Back to Athens

Paros was relaxing. Besides the fact I did find out I am not a skilled motor scooter driver.

But last night I drank wine with a German girl under a full moon. Who knew I could feel so relaxed having almost no plans.

Greek food is amazing - I’m going to miss it.

I have discovered that it is best to spend at least 3 nights where I go. Now a boy I met in Athens is coming to take me for dinner and then going to help me call the bus station to find out if indeed I can make it to Bulgaria tomorrow. I hadn’t originally planned on going of Sofia - but I met this amazing Turkish guy in Istanbul who I ended up spending a lot of time with. Well, he has friends in Sofia who he said would be happy to show me around if I go. So, why not?! Spontaneity is the purpose of zero plans - it seems meant to be.

Eva, the beautiful German I met in Paros also read my tarot cards - which were crazy enlightening. It basically said that I was at a place of new beginnings - and something is happening now that will change my life forever ( haha yes, traveling alone for two months can do that ).

I am spending everyday incredibly grateful for my opportunity of world and self discovery.
