Chernihiv – A Lovely Day Trip from Kyiv in Pictures

Our Lady of Lebanon and a Very Special Sunset

Our Lady of Lebanon in Harissa

If you live somewhere in the West, you’ve probably only heard bad things about Lebanon. You’ve heard it’s dangerous, full of Muslim extremists waiting to kidnap you, that it’s way too radical, and that an European solo female traveler should never ever go there, because there is no reason to anyway.

2016 in 16 pic(k)tures

2016 was a rough year. Not because my favorite celebrities proved mortal or something. It’s way deeper than that. These are not the best times for people who want to destroy walls rather than build them. And there’s not much we can do about it.

A Day in Bitola in Pictures

I knew nothing about Bitola upon my arrival. I hopped on a bus to the second largest city in Macedonia only because I committed to exploring the country properly.
