Modern princeses of our time

Something about princes without white horse, from my and my girlfriends observations. There is nothing bad that wouldn’t bring us to better, so I always accept things my personal way – positive way. Being polite is so rare these days that it’s often confused with flirting. Life is really simple but some insist on making it complicated. So how they romance the princesses?

PAKISTAN 2019 – males, (police, taxi services…) safety and other beauties

I wish to say just good things but the reality is different, and I feel obliged to inform you of what I saw and experienced and what can happen to you if you are not lucky enough. It’s your choice how to treat my words. my aim was jut to write what happened purely to me and my close ones. My words are really quiet in comparison what I heard from local people/friends experiences (girls, boys stories). There are lots beautiful things written bout this country but let see what can happen in opposite side, that people usually keep silent. Each stick always have 2 ends.

JORDAN 2017

(picture of As-Salt) It takes a few minutes to get a visa on arrival. Of course, I had to be stopped and taken to a special room. ‘What is this?’ asked a guy pointing at my Afghan visa. ‘Why is it here? Why you went there? why? why?’ “To see friends”‘Local friends? American friends?’ “Local”, ‘hmmmm’. Then he opened my passport at a Syrian visa asking the same. ‘Why you went there? Why travelled? why!?’, “I don’t know. I was passing by”, was the only thought that came to my mind. He look at me suspiciously and then ‘Welcome to Jordan’ and I was free to go. Yes, it took a while to get out of the airport. I understood, that I had to take a taxi to get to town. I met a cool local girl, who was returning from her solo trip to the Nepalese mountains. It was great to see an Arab girl going on such adventures. She accompanied me in a taxi to my place.

CUBA 2016-2017

Pssssss – I like you 😉

Cuba is a country of miracles where reality can become a poesy. Special value in Havana is to talk sincerely to every passerby like if he would be an old friend.

Seeing half-empty or half-full Cuban streets with old Cadillacs and Pontiacs made me realize fast that I was far away from home in a completely different country. In Havana was the least traffic I ever saw in my life. Simply, no cars, no traffic.

I arrived 24 December. It didn’t seem that people are celebrating Christmas as we do in Europe. Cubans started to celebrate Christmas influenced by a pope visit in 2015.

People here don’t stay calm, they get out, they talk, they observe, they are very active in social life. A real social life, they are not yet so destroyed morally by media as they hardly have access to internet, which costs 1-1.5 euro per 1 hour (while salary around 30) !

CHAD 2015

Chad!

kinda! – Hello in the local language.

First trip to Africa and my choice is Chad. Why Chad? Because accidentally I found a wonderful Archey canyon to see there, Also because I know nothing about this country and it’s not a tourist destination. So let’s go and discover it!

September-February is dust season. March-May – hot season. June-September rainy season, the worst one for travels. Continue reading CHAD 2015

-Why Syria?
