Crazy swim!

Bonjour loves! Sorry for not writing these days. This is a post I should’ve uploaded on Friday but I couldn’t find any Wifi until I came back home. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

drymadesToday was just perfect! I’d call it the best day of this summer. While me and my parents went to Drymades to spent the day, my friend Frida joined us. Drymades is in my opinion the best summer destination in Albania. It’s about 60 km away from Vlora, where my beach house is.

It was Friday and everybody was heading to the southern part of the country so we travelled about a hour and a half because of the road traffic.ย The journey to Drymades is a whole pleasure itself. The road takes you through the Llogara mountain. Usually everyone stops there to have a break, enjoy the nature and take lots of photos! And we did too.

Chillin’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

When arrived at Drymades we were a bit disappointed because the sea was not quiet at all. There were giant waves! After picking a nice place to stay at the beach ( Amsterdam Summer Club, which is a really fun zone, lots of music, amazing summer cocktails and schiuma party every weekend), me and Frida went swimming.

We stepped into the water and a giant wave just rolled us! And I was laughing hard while trying to breath and escape the other wave! And the other wave… And the other…’cause there were millions of waves before we

decided to take a break (which was about 10 min…Long time, huh?) It was impossible to get us out of the water ๐Ÿ˜€ We had a crazy swim ๐Ÿ™‚

Suddenly, it was raining! And this was the moment when everybody joined us rolling in the waves and screaming! Can you imagine a group of people swimming in the rain and acting like crazy? It was so fun! We all enjoyed it.

The lunch atย Drymades Innย restaurant was delicious. It immediately turned into my favourite place to eat and I highly recommend it.

Theย menu is light and healthy, seafood-based, and inspired by local flavors of Mediterranean cuisine. You’ll be surprised of the amazing dishes found here. Absolutely an great experience of taste! ๐Ÿ˜€ ย www.drymadesinn.al

CHEERS! ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the meanwhile, the rain became heavier and it was impossible to get outside. So, we grabbed our bags, left and had another short break at Llogara. Now I’m exhausted ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but also very happy and pleased.

AT MY HOME…

I live in a beautiful land surrounded by stately mountains, deep blue sea and large fields. Noisy cities, lots of traffic and old villages. Stubborn but also welcoming people. I live in Albania.

I love this place. I love my city. I love to walk around, enter my favorite cafes, see people talking with enthusiasm about the last gossip, be convinced by the same sellers, I’ve already known for years, to buy something I don’t really need :P. I also love saying HEllo to my neighbours who never forget to ask about my parents and how’s school going, I love buying so many sweets when I enter to my favorite bakery… I love so many things about my HOME.

It’s a really beautiful part of the world.

I’ve lived in this place forever. I am used to it. To the angry people, to the happy ones, to the lazy mondays and to joyful saturdays. It’s a place which makes me feel lucky ,sometimes, when I walk home after a successful day, and makes me hate the fact that I am a part of it when I ran into difficult situations.

For a girl like me, for a teenager, Albania is not the best country to be raised. But is my place.

If you visit my country you will probably love it, but if you stay here for a long time you will see how hard it is to live in a transition country.The society is passing such a hard moment. There are so many poor people around, people who do not give a damn about talking to neighbours or the annoying sellers. People who find themselves so alone, without someone to support them. This makes me feel sorry for living here. It’s not that I want to leave. I want this place to change. We need a big change. A change that must start from each and every person who can change.

Yes, where I live there’s no time for dreams and love… Where I leave people are fighting everyday for their lives.

When I walk home at the end of the day, when streets are empty, when the city is sleeping, I tell myself I love it. I love my home with all the bad and all the good things and I hope, every single day when I walk back home, for my Albania to CHANGE! ๐Ÿ™‚

Words of the heart

I wanna live for the little things.
I wanna live different. I wanna change myself, my lifestyle. Does this ever happen to you too? There are moments during my day, when I just stop and say: Look at that beautiful blue sky. How come that I always ignore that? What about these lovely flowers, what about that or that or that…?
These are moments when I really enjoy life. These are the moments when I’m truly living. Because I’m enjoying the little things.
During the happy moments with your family or friends do you ever stop and say: God I’m so blessed! Thank you!
I do. Quiet often.
It’s true that you only understand the value of these moments when you’re not able to live them, but once in a while stop scrolling, take a look around, love, be loved.
Open your heart and let the sunshine penetrate. Don’t think it twice when it comes to loving! Give love and don’t ever regret. Love heals every pain.
Don’t be afraid to show concern of others. Show people you love how grateful you’re for having them in your life. Fill yourself and the others with happiness.
You know, I like to think of life as a journey which you’ll be able to take only once. During this journey you are given the chance to live it the best way possible. Live it the best way possible!
Just take a walk around the block and get to know your neighbors, go to parties and make new friends, love, eat, pray! Don’t ever ever look back sadly!
Make this journey worth it! And at the end of it you’ll be able to proudly say to everyone who’s gathered around you: I had a wonderful life! I had you!
At my last day of living I don’t wanna be alone, I wanna have people crying for me and telling me they’ll miss me. I wanna die being loved and full of happiness. Please God help me do that! ๐Ÿ™‚
