*Thank you, you know why.*

It's been quite a while since I've written something.

Being engrossed with so many things, people (yes, friends), University, traveling...and most of all - being engrossed with doing things to make myself busy so I don't have to think. Would you call it a social life? Well, we can try to connect it with that definition.
So, being busy with so many things (which on one side was good but on the other...see for yourself) banned me from writing. Being tired is not the best thing, but being tired from doing things that make you feel at least a little bit alive, then that one is a good kind of exhaustion. At least I guess so.

Anyway, I decided to come back because I genuinely miss this. Even though I am overwhelmed with shit, I still care. I still need to come back because I have a feeling that I am obligated to. Obligated to keep this alive, for me, to remind myself that there is still something left to believe in. I simply have to get all the stuff out of my system, talk and also share wonderful memories and thoughts that I gain while I am not here.

Enough with a chit chat, let's get to business, shall we?

There comes a time when you just want to see a place about which you are hearing a lot and then you just wanna go because you care. L invited me to the place where she lives and actually I was really happy to go. It was Thursday night and I was laying in the bed thinking about the whole next days traveling and realized that I haven't been anywhere new in such a long time. I was really really looking forward to it.
So, I packed my stuff and left my hometown. Simple as that.

I always get really hype about new places and as you know, I take a lot of pictures. Be aware, this is going to be a roller coaster full of memories. Remember, you've been warned before.

First thing first- this years first SNOW. (yes, I know you can see it in the header picture). Let me introduce you - cold, but beautiful - winter.

Well, I haven't seen snow at least a year.
What about you?

As you already know, I am from a country that has every single season (so (sadly?), no America but Europe). As usual, not specifying anything, because this is the person I am, haha.
Casually, wading through the cold mess, trying to blink 3x faster to see at least on my nose (am I exaggerating? nah.) and simply enjoying the nice time with a family that accrued to my heard really fast.

"Hurry up, we have to leave."
"Why?"
" I don't want to end up being eaten up by a giant boar."

Well, please and thank you.

We came back home and were preparing for later that day, another part of the trip, because why not? There was no time for exhaustion, they wanted me to see as much as possible, since I have never been anywhere near there. Or maybe I was, but I was too young to remember it.

So we sat into the car and drove like 15 minutes away and this happened:

Believe me or not, this is the same region as I was earlier that day.
The snow is f&#*/ing with us!

I call it: A autumns invasion.

Lonely bench? Not lonely anymore.

Then we came to this place. As you know, I am obsessed with old places, but unfortunately I was not let inside. Shame...

105 stairs...oh my, why me? But guess what, I made it!
(No, you don't have to clap)

Yes, black and white session. As usual.

Just now, I decided to split this journey in half. So this was a first day of my journey and if you are interested for another half, stay tuned and surely you will get the second part on... Wednesday.   (?)

No, this is not the end. Be prepared for another time of being shocked by the amount of pictures waiting for you in my drawer.

Let me end like this:

I wanted to say, I am really happy that I got to go and get to know this amazing family and really appreciate the bond they have. Everyday I am trying to find something like this in between people and when I do see this, it always fills me up with joy and hope for a better tomorrow. I am looking around me and trying to appreciate the "present good" because I know that nothing will be the same in...a week? a month? ...a year.

See you in few days, until then...

Nina
