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 if 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

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 GrindavĂ­k, 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, GrindavĂ­k 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, GrindavĂ­k. You’ll always be in my heart.
