In one very hot afternoon, after some long days of worries and doubts, when I've decided to let go and enjoy life a little more, I've stepped into a Universe of flowers, oriental charm, and music. Soft, blessed music for my soul.
I've managed to avoid Penang a lot in the last years and I don't know why. Now, after our journey on the island, I can tell you this: it's worth a visit! Let me take your hand and show you my Penang and the things I fell in love with.
I was a little bit lost when I was heading to Penang. You know that feeling of being under pressure, overwhelmed, stressed out and don't know what's next. So, I was looking for something to make me smile again and a place where to find my peace.
I remember many years ago, I was in the lobby of Ritz, in Paris, looking in awe at the wonderful design and the grandeur of this iconic hotel. And in that moment, I had a dream: maybe, someday, I will stay at the Ritz.
I thought there would be a 3-4 hour journey from Tanjong Jara to Pangkor Laut and the car will go across the country, through the mountains, until we'll meet the west coast and its shore. But I was wrong. Our driver laughed and told us we have a 6-hour road in front of us. Ok, I can do this!! Let's ride!
After 6 visits, Kuala Lumpur is already home to me. I know the city, it really inspires me and I can create magic here. I have my favorite hotel, my special place where I eat and my supermarket. But after 5 days in this relentless city, I felt a calling, an unstoppable wish to go further, to discover more.
I had a wonderful journey from Petra to Aqaba, with a luxurious car driven by a Beduin (65 JOD), through the breathtaking mountains of Jordan, through villages and the sacred site of Wadi Rum. It was a one and a half hour long ride, and I would repeat it anytime!
In times of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, I put a lot of questions out there, into the world. Some of them are just prayers for some help, any help possible, others are desperate like “What else do I have to do?”, “When?”, “How?”. For both categories, the answers are not very clear or fast. I wait and wait, and fear more, and struggle even more.
De când mi-am instalat Kindle-ul pe telefon și comand cărți cu un singur click, viața mea s-a schimbat. În bine:) Simt că am acces la o lume fabuloasă, la porții de înțelepciune, la felii din viața altor oameni, la talentul, inspirația și darurile lor. De 4-5 ani citesc doar în engleză și mă bucur enorm de cărțile pe care le descopăr pe Amazon - free sau cu prețuri medii, de autori celebri sau necunoscuți. Iată mai jos câteva volume care mi-au plăcut în 2016, poate te inspiră și pe tine...
