New post on my blog. About my days in last weeks. It hasn't been easy and it hasn't been fun. But it's over for now and I am back to normal life with a smile on my face :) https://comewithmeandtakeapeek.com/2018/03/10/whats-been-going-on/ #fiordland #newzealand #mountains #fog #coulds #naturephotography #darkness #anxiety #hellodarknessmyoldfriend #iamnotyourfriend
Totally in love with nature 😍 #naturephotography #nature #sand #color #newzealand #splitapplerock
Roys Peak. Wanaka. New Zealand. For this view I climbed 4,5 hours. It was a hell. After 1st hour, I stopped, in pain, with bad blisters, out of breathe, out of motivation. #nojosedlotoneni I can't walk in my shoes on anymore, I realized, and decided to go back. I didn't want to fight. I suck in it. So I opened my backpack, took out my snack, started to eat and feel very upset. I texted my @tacianek and she told me, that I shouldn't bully myself. She was right. I kept sitting there in thoughts and told myself, that I can at least try. I don't have to go all the way up, if I won't feel like it. I can always go back. I started heading to the top. Barefoot. Suddenly it wasn't too hard to walk. There were plenty of moments when I thought I can't walk anymore... then I asked myself: "Ok, can you make 20 more steps?" "Well, 20 steps? Yeah, I can make 20 steps." So I did. And again, again, again... and I made it to the top. Did the fact, that I made it to the top, make me feel any different? No. But the journey did. #it'sallaboutthejourneynotthedestination #wanaka #royspeak #newzealand #journey

It’s Dec 27th and I am At the Gatwick Airport.
It has been almost two and half years since I first came to Iceland. Nervous, scared, naive, with bad language skills that got me many times into some kind of trouble, but also to many hilarious moments… I came to Iceland as an Au Pair and was sure I would go back home after 8 or 9 months, because I had to go to university. Well, after all, I didn’t really have to go anywhere and I had some opportunities in Iceland, in the weird town of Grindavík, so I stayed longer. Long enough to become part of the community, one of the locals, find new friends, family, home…

I do love Iceland, Grindavík and Icelandic people and they kind of feel like my folks. But all the time I was there I felt strong urge to leave. The only problem was that I didn’t know where to go and why.

One day my friend told me about his plan to get Working Holiday Visa to New Zealand and asked me to come with him. I didn’t think about it too much, because I was quite skeptic and thought I wouldn’t get the visa. So we applied and shit happened, again, I got the visa! Hurray!!! But my friend didn’t. It was really odd. It was his idea, his dream and now I am going without him. Well, it’s how it is and I am going to freakin’ New Zealand. Within 40 hours I will be landing in Auckland.

The time in Iceland gave me a lot more than I could ever think. And it wasn’t always good experience. But I am thankful especially for the bad things, it made me a lot stronger and I know much more about myself.
I am happy that I have met so many great people who have always been there for me and I know I can always rely on them. Oh boy… all the memories.

“If there is someone to miss,

you know it’s right.”

Thank you, Iceland. Thank you, Grindavík. You’ll always be in my heart.
