Where is your safe space?

One morning in Chiang Mai I felt as if a big bouquet of yellow flowers suddenly faded inside my chest. I was sad because my good friend left Chiang Mai.
I was riding my bike looking for some happiness around the old town. In front of a temple with a golden roof I found a little shabby cafe which served bagels. Bagels with cream cheese, with peanut butter, with eggs and bacon made my mouth water. The smile of the girl who worked there was contagious. The sun was kissing my face through the window.

11 reasons to spend summer in Ukraine

 

Ukraine is an amazingly beautiful country with breathtaking natural scenery, yummy food and warmhearted people. In the recent years, it has been tough for Ukrainians to face the war and economical crisys, but we are indeed still enjoying life, even when it gets tough.

It is the best time to come!

Happy life in Chiang Mai

When I first came to Chiang Mai in 2013, I was sitting at Wat Phra Singh temple during the evening chanting, I listened to the voices of the monks and warm heat was going through my body. “Chiang Mai is a home”, I thought back then. And in 2016 I moved here.

Chiang Mai is a sunny warm place connecting the paths of those who Continue reading “Happy life in Chiang Mai”

Raw Vegan for a month

About five years ago, I met a Ukrainian man in Cambodia who was cycling through the country drinking coconuts and eating fruit only. I had heard about raw vegan movement before, but that man was my first real encounter of this phenomenon. My friend Anna and I were really inspired by him, and we decided to try what it felt like. Our experiment lasted for a month. Continue reading “Raw Vegan for a month”
