My Trip To Poland Video

I am almost ashamed for not telling you guys but I wasn’t sure if I was able to pull it off. But I did! I made an entire clip about my vacation to Poland and it’s a step closer to you guys… I’ve noticed I’ve gotten a few new followers so this is for all of you. I am now, more than just words and pictures. You will see my private vacation(which isn’t that private anymore now) but that’s all good 🙂 if not, I wouldn’t have posted it at all! I just finished making and uploading this and I hope you all will enjoy the video, just as much as I enjoyed the entire vacation. By the way, pay close attention to the part where I show the house… You’ll see aaall the books in the livingroom 😉 Just FYI.

Have fun and I’ll go to bed.. I need my sleep because last night I didn’t sleep much in the car.. PS! We arrived here this morning around 7:15 so… We did a good job, and we left at 9 PM. Well, my stepfather did a good job. Anyways, I am going to bed! Sleep well all of you and thank you for taking the time to read this, follow me, comment on my posts and even like them 🙂

Favorite books!

Finally, finally, finally! I will FINALLY astonish you with the books I’ve been reading like a madman here. Are you ready?

Books:
It is time! I’ve read SO MANY books that it will amaze you. Yes, it amazes me how one moment(at home) I have nothing to read. And the next moment(in Poland) I see a library full of books(not really, but still a lot of books) and I can’t stop reading them! I’ve definately become a fan of ‘Konsalik’. Apparently not a man, but a woman. Let’s start off with three Konsalik books I’ve read, starting with my favorite of them all! (Not that the other 2 aren’t good).

Okay, so I can’t find the English books of it but I will translate for you all 🙂 This is the exact cover I have here(still in Poland). Translated it’s called: A summer with Danitsja. It’s my favorite book of Konsalik at the moment. It’s about a German doctor who wants to go back to Yugoslavia to end his life there. He’s had a rough life, and he wants to go back to a place that once meant the world to him. On his way there, however, he crashes together with his a car and he is found by a young girl named Danitsja. She’s there from that moment to fight against his demons. She’s there to make sure he remains alive. They fall madly in love and want to start overnew back in Germany. My new favorite book! Definately worth the read!

This is actually two books in one, but it’s about the first title: ‘The demonic Goddess.’ It’s a story in France about a painter who gets the job to paint a nude painting of a woman without a name. She wears a red veil so no one can see her face. The painter however, falls madly in love with her. Turns out at the middle of the book that he’s not the only man who has fallen for her beauty. The ending of the book serves the woman justice, if you ask me 😉 Lovely to read!!

This is the last book I read of Konsalik, I finished it yesterday , after reading it for a day and a half. It’s called ‘Cossacks love’. The story begins in old Russia, in the time of ‘Ivan The Terrible’. The Tsar wants to invade Syberia and overcome the country, together with the Stroganows(a very rich family who trades a lot throughout Russia). But they need the Cossacks to help them invade Syberia. There are two leaders of the Cossacks, very good and loyal friends: Jermak and Moesjkow. Moesjkow however, falls in love with Marina, a farmers girl who he cannot rape and kill, He takes her with him as his ‘trophy’ dressed as a boy, because women are not allowed in the Cossack Army. Marina tries to make a normal human being out of Moesjkow, who has Always been a killing, plundering, raping Cossack. A lovely story with an ending to die for!

Those were my favorite Konsalik books. Now moving on to another book(The rest of the books were mostly Dutch so I highly doubt you can find those)

I was able to find the english cover of it! So here we go: The Village Bride of Beverly Hills.
Here’s the Original description of the book in English. ‘After an arranged marriage in her native India, Priya moves with her husband to California, where they share a house with his parents.  Playing the traditional daughter-in-law role, she’s expected to clean, cook, and—because she doesn’t immediately get pregnant—find a job as well! But the job, at a glossy Hollywood gossip magazine, isn’t at all what Priya’s in-laws had in mind for a traditional Indian wife.  She soon finds herself with a secret life that she must hide from her disapproving new family. All the while, she is growing into a marriage with a man whose loyalty is decidedly torn between his parents and his bride.  This is hardly surprising, given that he met his wife only a week before their wedding.  The question is, can this fragile new love survive the pull between tradition and ambition?’
Definately worth the read! I thought it wasn’t interesting but I was wrong!! I love this book, it was the first book I read here in Poland 🙂 . So now I finally was able to give you guys some books I’ve actually read and finished.

And this is the end of my Favorite Books post! I was excited to finally be able to read and FINISH books. So thanks for reading, everyone 🙂
Bye guys! xx See you guys next time, back in my own country ♥

The Ending and the Beginning.

Hi guys ! So, my vacation is coming to an end, tomorrow we’ll be heading back to The Netherlands. Through Poland and Germany, back to our home. I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for so long. And now that it’s coming to an end, everything hits me. The positive and the negative. See, I finished High School, I got a job now and I’ll be turning eighteen in 24 days. I am so stoked for my new job! I am curious how my co-workers will be like(I’ve heard they’re rather funny). I am also scared that I can’t keep up with the world, which will keep spinning while I’m trying to find my place.

The positive feelings however, are stronger. The whole feeling that ‘I won’t be alone’ is helping me a lot. Recently I’ve been through a lot, mentally. I’ve also ended the contact with my dad, again. A father is Always a father to a child. Just like a mother will Always be a mother. I added my father a while ago because he kept sending me requests. I kept telling my mother I would wait until my school was finished, then I’d delete him. But after a long and good heart-to-heart with a friend of ours, I’ve decided to send my father everything that bothered me throughout the years and the things that still do. In my message I’ve also let him know, that I would give him one more week until I’d permanently delete him off my Facebook.
I felt a lot better after I had sent it, but after a week he still hadn’t replied. So I deleted him and I feel remorseful that yet again, my father didn’t mend what he broke. He (to me) is no longer a father, actually he never was, so I am coming to terms with the fact that I don’t have a real dad around.

I also finished High School and that’s still a big thing. It still has a huge impact on me how good I feel about it. I found out it was something I didn’t really wanted to do, yet I did finished it. Not exactly with honors, like my last school, but I finished it nonetheless. But there is also something big and great waiting around the corner, that’s how I feel that is. The great big ‘Unknown’. I don’t stand alone, but it’s still my battle, my journey and my expectations. Work, adulthood, bills, money, my own place perhaps. All this and more that I cannot predict is waiting for me. In the big Unknown. The world will open entirely for me and it’s a amazing yet scary feeling. But I’m sure I’ll manage , eventually everyone does (:

Thus we come to the title of this post(I am so proper today, aren’t I?). The Ending and the Beginning. Because that is exactly what will happen, or already happenend. I feel, as if my life will start soon. My participation in life and society. I hope that I will finally meet someone who can make my heart beat faster and I hope that I can do the same to his heart. I am at the start of something new. And that asks for a themesong, don’t you think? I know this song is cheesy but I love the cheesy-ness about it. 😉
