About Me


I guess here is the place, where I have to introduce myself. My name is Monika and this is my blog!

I like to travel and write about it. Well, I suppose everybody with a travel blog, does. When I was little, I used to take the bus with the longest route to my house, so I can travel as long as possible. Yes, in this case, it is not travelling, as in visiting new places, but it is travelling, as in exploring. Because, I believe that even in a city, you’ve lived your whole life, you can find something new, something different, something exciting, every day. Although, I loved to “investigate” every centimeter of the city, I felt like in a cage. My heart was beating for something else. My soul, was screaming, for something new. My body wanted to take me somewhere… And that’s when I realized, it was time for a change. Since, then, whenever I have the opportunity to travel to a new place, I just pack my bags and go.


So, that was about my passion for travelling. My writing, though, is another story. I love to write! I was may be 3-4 years old when, I started asking my grandmother to write my stories. Yes, I wasn’t good at writing, as in writing my words alone, but I had it in my head. When I was older enough to know the alphabet and to write, I started to do it by myself. I still have a couple of my children books (written by me), in my drawer. I’ve always had very good marks on my essays and short stories, and decided to continue improving my writing. And here I am today: having a personal blog, with all of you following me(and each one of you, has such a gift in writing, cooking or photographing), and it is such a pleasure, not only to write, but to read your blogs!. Also, writing for newsforshoppers.com, which was a very interesting journey. And, of course, hoping for more opportunities in the future.

I also enjoy making new stuff.  Yes, that is my secret passion. And by making I mean do it yourself or cooking something new. I follow cooking blogs and read a bunch off cooking sites. There I find my next recipe and as the nike slogan suggest – I just do it! 🙂


My absolute and true love is a cold beer and I am a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. maniac 😀

Many thanks to all of you who nominated my blog for these awards! You are awesome!

  4. Wonderful travel stories, Monika. I love your travels and need to read all of them. Very interesting.

    One things which fascinated me truly was how you took the longest route bus in your quest to see the unseen and untraveled. That’s such an important characteristic about we travelers. Even i do the similar things, even now. Either take the train or metro or bus till the last stop, see the place en route and experience being with myself. 🙂 Its gives me so much pleasure. I can definitely understand when you say about your travels.

    Do visit my blogs too – travel stories, photographs and poems. 🙂

    Wish you a great new year 2015 ahead….:)
