Africa in my heart 💖💓

I had opportunity to visit Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe in Summer 2015. I remember when we arrived it was something totally different that I ever could imagine. Group of people were dancing at the airport, they were so smiley, and danced in the rhythm of the drums. Than we had a drive to Victoria Falls hotel, and that was just beautiful place. All were so kind and nice, and I just could not wait to see the Falls, that I heard so much about. Than we went for a walk finally, and while walking towards the Falls, firs i could hear the sound of water and than to see the fog of water drops…and yes, here you go…those glorious, huge mountains of water that are rolling down and making a spray of drops around. Many people taking pictures. I was just in haven of happiness.I think if I even saw just that I will be glad and appreciate, but trust me what came after that was just like seeing the king of queens in person :-). We had a nice dinner in the restaurant, while you can here the sound of Falls far away, and enjoy that. Animals were walking around, and all was just so different than anything before that. Day after, early in the morning, it was time for my first game drive. It was cold, and I was surprised, that after being so hot during the day, you wake up in such a cold weather…Yes, we saw a reasonable things, not too much, but for me was all just like a dream. We were so fortunate to see Luna Rainbow!!!! Victorian Falls are one of 3or 4 places in the world where you can see that, and we were more than lucky, since it was Full Moon two nights in a raw which is exception itself. I did not know that something like that exist at all…until I saw it :-)…Magnificent, is all I can say.After a few days there, it was time to take a trip to Muchenje resort in Botswana. Ahhhhhhh…I really cannot describe all of that. There we saw so many of buffaloes running, lions, many, many elephants, all but leopard. Than we took a drive back to Victorian Falls, and with a small plain we had an 1 and 30 min flight to Linkwasha resort in Zimbabwe… Really, something that is breathtaking. Best of best. I was scared of the flight though, and did not enjoy whole view since I spend half of trip freaking out, but after it was nice. Way we wre accommodated, was something that you cannot have in Ritz for sure. This was better…You have it all, and you can take a shower while elephants are walking around. We did walking Safari, and that was an experience that was worth effort :-)…trying to escape elephants, and learning so much about nature from or ranger Luis. Than we moved to Mana Pool resort in Zimbabwe, and had chance to experience the rivers and different kind of birds. Funny thing happened when we after one morning game came back to our tent, and there were baboon inside, that was jumping around, looking for a cookies:-).. It was an kind of tricky situation, since the elephants were walking close to tent too…and believe it or not, I learned in Africa that those huge Dumbo, that is an example of happiness and fun for kids, can be actually very dangerous!!!!! So it was an I will rather say funny risky and freaky situation :-)… I did some fishing, and managed to catch the big one I have a picture with. When the time came to go back, I did not want to leave, just wanted to stay there and enjoy the nature, animals, and freedom that you can see in Africa. Even people are poor, they are happy!!! I never saw so many kids smiling while whole village taking a bath in the Zambezi river. Were we happy, I do not know for the other part, but I was very happy. This was and will remain the trip of my lifetime. Unfortunately, somehow I lost a lot of pictures, and the person who took me to that trip is gone, so I cannot recover them but I will always have that Luna rainbow and carry Africa in my heart. I will go back this summer to Namibia, and I am sure will be beautiful, because Safari and Africa cannot go wrong no matter if you are in the wrong company :-)…even the wrong person next to you seems as a good one…

Love Africa 🙂



Shopaholic and I like it :-)

It is the time of season when all is on sale! i wonder, if people are on sale too??? In the stores there are million people cowling around, fighting for the stuff, and all look so tired, but still happy. I love to shop! And I have expensive taste…though I cannot always get what I really want and like, at least I can look and think and plan for the moment when I get the opportunity, what I will buy first. So when, the right moment comes, I am not surprised, and cannot handle the temptation, but I will be ready, and I will storm in few favorite stores. First I will do Edward Anchore, followed by G Armani, and Cartier :-)…than I will get a coffee break in Dior, and than I will stop by Chanel. Let me speak frankly, Edward Anchore is a brand that is like Chanel, but I think better quality and not so expensive. Even looks and feels nicer than Chanel. Trust me, Chanel is not what it used to be anymore…textile is very hard and not so smooth, and the classy one can be found maybe in some vintage stores…Still they are kings for begs, and glasses…pearls are very fancy, but not worth money. Anyway, Chanel remains a still stop for a few small things… Amaizingly, I can go to the stores, and I do not have in mind a single sting that I really need, but than once I am there, i can find so many that I cannot live without :-)…How is that possible??? I do not know…I wonder, does that makes me shopaholic? Dreamer?? Or just a simple woman 🙂 as many others out there, just with bit more expensive taste and never enough money :-)… Well, I let you decide…in the mean time, I will have to face my fears and guess what, go shopping for what I can get, and plan for what I will get when the things are on place- I mean money …

Love you


Lady with a tattos 😻

Today journey was really special one! First, train was late, started from 30 min up to 1hr and 15 min delay…I said to myself, ok…everything happens for a reason, so who knows why this delay is good. Than, finally, I manage to get to my seat, put my legs up on the front seat, take my iPad and start watching some of my movie collections…On the seat next to mine, I spotted an interesting girl. Long, blond hair, you know one of the really nice hairs, thick, and good quality, a bit messy, but nice, you can spot her from a distance. I like to look people first in the eyes, and than to make a loo on their hands. I do not know why, but I love hands, they tell so much about people, their life, work, care, sometimes, they can say more than eyes can say. We can train to make a look, but we cannot change the life marks on our hands. My Lady, had a black jumper, with long sleeves, longer than you will expect, so I could not spot immediate, but eventually i saw she has a lot of tattos on her both hands. Some were on the fingers, and than seemed that all hands are covered. Let me speak to you frankly, I am not a fan of tattos at all. I always wondered, why would you paint your body!!! Come on, if you want attention, and to be spotted there are other ways. Also, I always was scared of people with tatto, because, I will think they might be cruel one, with no feeling, no emotions, just pure animal instinct that is leading them. However, thanks to French train, that we had to leave and wait for 1  hr and 30 min extra in Lille to transfer to train to Brussels, I start speaking with this wonderful woman, my Lady. She was nice and very polite, and we just decided to go for a coffee and just go with the flow and try not to miss the last train :-). And than I discover the real beauty of the person sitting next to me. If I ever thought I had a hard life, I was really wrong! My life is walk in the park compared with her story. She almost did  not have a childhood as she says, had a mother that was very ill, and she took care at the age of 8 more about her mum than her mum looked after her. She was mums savior, and I can understand those words, when a child save mother…and we lose the border between the parent and child, and the relationship turns into something else. She lost her mother at the age of 16, and met her own father near age of 20 and lost him shortly after… During a tough time, she went from anorexia to many other look for myself stages…and she started to pain her own body, not to get attention, but to fight life and remind herself that life is going on that there is a light in life no matter what! That today and tomorrow are what matters, and past should stay behind, where it belongs. She showed me the story of her life on her hands, and that will stay in all time to come to remind her that she still standing. My Lady, in all terms of that word, is a painter, artistic soul…full of empathy and sympathy, understand people more than many others around, with Rolex on their hands, and diamond rings. Her heart is big, open, and amazingly, she will not recommend tattos to young kids, or maybe not to anyone…I learned that for her it was a light and source of going through the day by day, to manage through the tunnel named life. She thought me a big lesson of life, that even when one battle is lost, war still goes on, and we should fight and stand until the very end. Bravo my Lady for all the courage and for caring the burden of life on hands…you will make a perfect mother to your daughter one day.



Château (Castle) de la Poste 💒

Castles are such amazing places..can be quite good for getaway and enjoying few days off. This one, was similar to Miranda Castle experience I had this summer, but with a big difference – we could sleep over, enjoy nice dinner, nice morning after and have fun all together. Place dates from 1884, and is transformed into hotel in 2009. Forest is breathtaking, even it was cold, rainy and windy, still could not ruin the feeling of perfect place and good atmosphere. It remained me in Pride and Prejudice movie, when Elisabeth Bennet, walks early morning in the fields thinking and enjoying the cold weather, but she is kept warm in her heart by the love to Mr Darcy! Ahhhh, this is so classy, love in the air with many positive and negative happenings, small fights, tears, but with happy end…because Happy End is for the stories that are not finished yet. Some people, might arrive n company of Mr or Mrs Right so they can enjoy that perfection more…some might arrive alone and meet Mr Darcy 🙂 not even expecting it, and have the start of the new book …never knows, but Castle hides so many things…that are for me to know, and for you to find out 💒



Count on us, Tito and Communist time ★

I date from communist time and country named Yugoslavia! That you cannot see anymore, and many doesn’t even know the name. It was totally different period of time, more relaxed, and easier, and you could see the light at the end of tunnel. I have impression that back than, people were more motivated to work, to make things, discover, move forward. School was very difficult, even from the first grade. So demanding, when I just remember. They wanted from us too much things to put in head and know from all different subjects. During the summer break we had homework, and were obliged to read lot of books and write about what we were reading. Days at school were long, starting early in the morning 7:30 am until 1 pm or from 1:15 pm until 7:30 pm…Man..I can say now, that I hated school. I was one of the best students, very competitive, one of those who just sit and study, and rise hand up and knew all the answers, when to competitions in math, physics. There were no free time, bcs in free time I will go dancing lessons, and language lessons…Every day there was something, and in weekends I will have to study again, so I can manage through the week. I really hated every day, but I went to school and was best bcs my mum always told me since I was 4, study and finish school, learn languages, do not be fool and depend from man in your life. When you have school, you have your own money and you do not need to take many things that women with no salary, job and good job eventually have to take…My mum was a housewife, you know one of the ideal families, with 2 kids, dog , big house, beauty queen for a wife and husband that was making loads of money, and could afford house help to his wife, everything but still she was not happy! It took me many yrs to realize why she was telling this. Now, when I look back, after finishing the highest schools I could, and I still learn…I see the point, and I thank you every day for teaching me so. Even I hated primary and high school, and felt like torture all those years, I did love my Medical School and PhD, and I love my job now. I thank God I have all education, bcs no matter what, I know I can survive and be good. And i loved communist time, and Tito..That little fat man, strange but not a stranger. Some called him dictator, and that he promoted totalitarianism, but he was good. Better than many today. At that communist time, I did learn to respect people, respect work, appreciate, love, help and stand for things I believe in. I learned to behave, have nice manners, and not humiliate others. We did learn to dress normally and have respect for older people,  teachers, parents, partners. I cannot see so much of that today unfortunately… We were exposed to some motivational communist songs, some will say brain washing, I will say motivation boost! People that time believed in something, and were ready to act as one, and to give all in. Today it is not a case… Than people will keep together no matter what…However, best what I learned, is to let things go, and people go from my life when they want, and many will silence misunderstood as ignorance, but it is what I learned in communist time, when you see you cannot change things, or someone, than just let it go, be silent, and move on and let the circle of happiness to spin and change direction…

LUMITW always no matter what Xxx


PS  This is Serbian typical communist motivational song…it is on Serbian, but I listen to it in occasion to boost my motivation 🙂
