December 2013: Armed guard welcome in Warsaw for the most amazing solo weekend trip. The cute colorful town square, the incredible food, and the warmest people in a cold winter makes it my favorite weekend getaway so far. First a walking tour of the city to learn about the history and make some wonderful international friends. And then I was basically adopted by the loveliest bunch of locals who showed me around, fed me homemade peirogi and took me out dancing. Traveling really is the best way to make friends. And develop a taste for Polish vodka and views ;)
“It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it's not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, "Yes!" It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.” -Oriah 📷 @ctopaziophotography
Burro bananas and collard greens are my 2 favourite foods right now. My creativity and enjoyment of food is just on another level right now! What kind of foods have y’all been playing around with recently?

The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place.

▵ ‘all that and a bag of chips’....not sure why but 90s slang bits won’t leave my brain today
Met this little thing on the way to #girforest. He just sat there basking in the sun, ready to pose with big black eyes. This langur had no intention of letting us pass till we paid him his toll - read food. Unfortunetly for him, we had nothing on us!
Бонджорно, рагацци, а как насчёт того, чтобы откупорить бутылочку итальянского солнца и приправить все это доброй порцией юмора? Ребята, знакомьтесь, это Настя @nastia.glebik! 💙 Обладательница роскошной копны волос и повелительница смешных текстов! Вот уже четыре года она живет на Апеннинском полуострове и ведет оттуда свои заметки о жизни в Италии, муже-итальянце и о красочных путешествиях по Европе!😍
Если в вашей жизни не достаточно витамина Д, то эта солнечная галерея восполнит этот пробел. (Уверена, что там и другие витамины раздают 😀) В общем, красивая девушка, сочные тексты, живописная Италия...что ещё нужно? 😍 Заглядывайте к Насте, уверена, что захотите остаться (только обо мне не забывайте, ок?) 😂 @nastia.glebik
Рассказывайте, какой у вас любимый город/регион в Италии? ✨
