5 Reasons Why Travelling Is So Amazing / YOUTUBE

Hi there! I have new video on my youtube channel where I am talking about travelling. I have few reasons why I think that travelling is so amazing and I decided to share them with you. 

I have always been passionate about travelling. There was something about it that I found inspiring and life changing. When I was a child I didn't have opportunity to travel but now that I am almost 20 years old, I feel like I can do anything and go anywhere. When you turn 18 and finish high school you feel like you own the whole world. It is amazing to be ambitious and do what you like doing. I moved to UK to study and it changed my life completely in a better way. I am so happy how things turned out for me even though when I came back home some things changed, I felt different, my friends changed , I changed, but at the end of the day all that is normal. I just think that we need to listen to ourselves and be on right path. I don't wanna go with this too far and write whole book about this so let's start with my top 5 travelling reasons! ;)

 - you get out of your everyday routine. You explore new places, new cultures and meet new people! 

- you have a chance to meet new people, their way of life and you have opportunity to share your experience with those people! 

- travelling is great opportunity for creating memories, life time memories that you won't ever forget. But my advice is to always take your notebook with you and write down everything that you have done on that trip! 

-  having "you" time is very important for our mental health. It is incredible to sit somewhere beautiful and have stunning view and just relax and enjoy. You actually connect with the nature! 

- wherever you travel you get the chance to know more about that place. You learn about the way of life, about culture, history of that place and you try new things! 

This is all for my new blog post, here is also my youtube video about travelling so take a look if you are interested and let me know what do you think and also don't forget to leave a comment and tell me why you like or don't like travelling! Enjoy your weekend , kisses! :*

Ljubljana Travel Blog

One of my favorite places to visit is definitely Ljubljana which is the capital of Slovenia. Exploring new places has always been exciting and fun.  I spent one month in Slovenia and had the best time. I  often go to Ljubljana because my boyfriend lives there so I am always looking forward going there.
People always say that travelling makes us happy and since I was a child I was wondering why is it like that, what is so amazing about travelling and now I finally found an answer. It is not travelling that makes us happy, it is experience that we get. Travelling inspires us because we meet new place, new people, different culture, different people and then we see that we are all different and we live different way of life but there is at least one thing that we have in common, we are human beings. 

Ljubljana is known as a European Green Capital and for a reason. It is small by surface area, but huge when it comes to hospitality, tourism and quality of life.  If you decide to come to the city center you will find it the same as in any other city center, overcrowded and noisy even though Ljubljana has a river that goes through the city center, it's called Ljubljanica. It is beautiful especially because you can can find so many restaurants and cafe bars around by the river and the view is stunning. If you get bored of that, don't worry, take a ride around the center and you won't regret it. I saw so many parks, lakes, running areas, different sport activities, I many days exploring all the nature and still it was impossible to see all, but soon I am travelling to Ljubljana again so can't wait to see the rest.  ;)

Green Ljubljana has high level of healthy life. I am trying to have healthy life by eating healthy and by doing some sport, running, etc. Ljubljana is right place for being healthy. I was actually suprised when I saw so many people riding a bike. Some of them are riding a bike because of recreation, but some use it just to get somewhere, especially students. Also you will always find people doing sports, some people like to walk, some like to run (actually many people run :P ) , some exercise, it's amazing to see something like that. 

This is just one part of beautiful Ljubljana, but be ready to see even more in my future posts. Now, enjoy the pictures and let me know what is your favourite place to go and tell me did you like Ljubljana! Kisses!

Having best time at amazing event called in Slovenian "TuĊĦev Tek Barv". the challenge was to run 5 km with thousands of people and we were thorwing colour powder all around and run one circle of 5 km. We also got some equipment ( T-shirts, sunglasses, colour powder, small backpack with snacks and drinks). Atfer we came back we had fun playing around and drinking and eating snacks for free! How cool is that! It all started at 5PM and at 8PM DJ's were playing on the stage. My favourite DJ was playing, FEDDE LE GRAND! We had an amazing time that night and I can say for sure it was the best party ever, something different :D

Making big decisions has never been easy but it has always been exciting. One of my biggest decisions ever was leaving my country which is Croatia to study in England. Why I decided to do that? I decided to do such a big step because I needed some change and I thought it's time to do something new, to make big step in my life. I was so sure about my decision and I made my dream come true. I worked hard whole summer (summer 2015) to save some money for England and then when I come there find some part time or even full time job. Nothing could stop me because I wanted to do that so hard. I moved to England in September 2015 with three friends of mine and soon, after maybe one month, month and a half we found a job, we were going to university and day by day we got use to it. I went to visit my familiy in February and now I am back home again. I finished my first year at university. By the way, I live in Birmingham and I go to University College Birmingham. This was just short review. But I would like to share some tips with you that I find interesting and helpful.

 1.       DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE MONEY. This is one of the most important things I want to say. I was worried a little bit about the money, but I was hoping to find a job soon and that was exactly what happened. If you decide to study in England, my advice is just to be patient and print many copies of your CV and leave it everywhere. It will work out for sure because in England you can find so many jobs for students, you just need to look for. Day by day you will find a way how to save money, for example I buy groceries I always go to Aldi because I found out that Aldi is cheaper then Tesco or Sainsbury. Small things can help you to save money.

       DON'T BE AFRAID TO MEET NEW PEOPLE. When I came to UK I was scared of new people. I thought that maybe they won't like me or something like that but soon I realised that it's not true. I became open for meeting new people, not only British, but people from all around the world because in Birmingham you'll find so many people from different countries. The best thing about that is that you learn so much from them because they have different culture and live in a completely different way. Some of them are in the same situation as you are so can you imagine how awesome is that?? J
 DON'T STRESS ABOUT YOUR ENGLISH. I think that I stressed to much and struggled with this for too long. Before I moved to UK, my English was good enough to move there and live there, but I thought it's not. I thought I have to speak perfectly and have no mistaked because if i make mistake people will laugh. Again, I was wrong. Through these 9 months i made many mistakes speaking English but that never stopped me to speak or to try be better. One thing that heleped me a lot was the fact that so many people live in UK but they are not British and they speak let's say „broken“ English. That helped me a lot because I thought I will be the only one who doesn't have perfect English. After few months I improved my English and I make mistakes now as well, on my blog you can find some mistakes in writing and you will find them on my youtube channel, but I won't feel down because I am getting better and better. There is one quote that I like a lot: NEVER MAKE OF SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS BROKEN ENGLISH. IT MEANS THEY KNOW ANOTHER LANGUAGE.
BEING ON YOUR OWN. This was the best thing ever. You wanna know why? Because you control your life on your own way. Yes, it is hard sometimes to take care of everything because you have so many things on your head but at the end of the day you feel proud of yourself and you mature. In the morning I would go to the gym (8AM) then I would go to university around 10:30AM or 11AM. I would come back home around 3PM or 4PM, cook some lunch and dinner and from 6PM till 12AM I had to be at work. Saturday was the only  
1.       day I was off. I am not complaining, I am just proud how things turned out for me. Don't be afraid to be on your own, even when you feel down, just remember how strong you are and how much did you do for yourself. J
YOUR NEW WAY OF THINKING. Talking about all this, you have to know that your perosnality will change in a better way. You will see the world, get new experiences, meet new people, get new oportunities and it will change you. Your life will change, you will lose some things, but you will get something else. Life changes all the time, it is all about you and how you handle all the cnhanges. J
