GALLERY: The Black Sea & How I Learned to Ride a Bicycle






little escapades are always fun; especially when you decide it’d be a great decision to buy some train tickets about an hour before heading to the seaside, on the FIRST day of May, the opening of the warm season, which, to me, really feels like the summer kickoff.

Pack some sunnies, pack a sweater, pack a camera, take a good friend and a big smile and off you go.

You know why travelling inspires me so much?

Because it startles me, it pushes me to literally feel so much more, it fills me with joy and life and a tremendous passion for experience. It may be rushed and full and overwhelming, but that is what excites me and makes me want to write novels of the places I’ve seen, the people I’ve shared stories with, the what’s and when’s of some pretty unforgettable adventures.

But what about trying new things? What about throwing fear off the window? Doing something you’ve never done before, feeling uncomfortable and uncertain, but realizing how brave and how glad you are you did it. This is me, actually riding a bicycle for the first time in my life. It sounds silly, yet it took a LOT of courage. I had to constantly remind myself that if I wouldn’t keep pedaling, I’ll eventually fall. So, through miles and miles, parking lots and a few unexpected swear words when people wouldn’t move away, I did it, I was riding a bicycle, and even though some were staring at how reckless my control over it was, I was still riding a bicycle, and nothing could really beat that.

Now pack your memories and use the mindset to continue on doing great things, continue on growing, loving, giving and continue on living – to the fullest.
