The Evolution of the Woman in Me

Take Me to a Fairy Tale

“Take me to a fairy tale. To a place where magic is as real and as unquestionable as the fact that Sun will rise everyday again. To a place where the Good and the Evil fight in their never-ending quarrel, just as here, but the Good always wins,” she whispered and smiled gently.

The Unescapable February Days

I don’t know if you are familiar with this feeling, but February days are for me, in general, very gloomy. And even the fact that it’s sunny outside usually isn’t helping.

For me as a person who usually traveled abroad only by car to sea or with organized school trips it wasn’t always so clear. I heard the scary stories about public transport in the US or in Newcastle from my college buddies but despite that, I still used to take the way everything works here as granted.

The Ireland Trip: Staying in Airbnb in Dublin

We found a perfect match on the periphery of Dublin but still on the red tram line in a quarter called Drimnagh. It was supposed to be around 30 minutes by tram from the city center and that felt completely alright for us.
