SUMMER READING LIST VOL. VI

Beginning of summer means time to share my summer reading list with you guys. Not going to lie, it’s one of my favorite blog posts to write. I do it every year, and you can check my previous reading lists here. No summer vacation is complete without at least one good read. Each summer I make a reading list with all the books I want to read, and I love sharing it with you in case you need some inspiration on what to read this summer. My list contains from current best-sellers to lesser known novels to classics and business oriented books.

TRAVEL, TURKEY

Cappadocia had been on my travel wish-list for a few years, and this May it was finally crossed off. Cappadocia the land of beautiful horses, peculiar rock formations, fairy chimneys and the hundreds of hot air balloons that fly out each morning during sunrise. Even though it has been heavily popularized by social media in recent years, I still think it’s a place worth the visit.

TRAVEL, EUROPE

Last month I took a road-trip with friends across the western Balkans. While I am in Europe I am trying to squeeze in as much travel as possible. The initial plan was to go to Bosnia and Herzegovina for rafting, but we decided to make it a little road-trip with multiple stops along the way. Total lenght of the trip was 5 days and we visited 5 countries, not bad at all. So in this post I will share the itinerary we had from our western Balkan road-trip.

TRAVEL, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA

Welcome to Mostar. One of the most visited places in Bosnia & Herzegovina, famous for its beautiful architecture, natural beauty, and the world famous Stari Most. Up until the 19th century Mostar was under the Ottoman Empire which resulted a large portion of the architecture and culture of Mostar to be greatly influenced by it. The famous Stari Most was built  during the Ottoman Empire ruling. Mostar is a charming city, I immediately fell in love with its cobble streets, stone houses, the beautiful views and cute shops and restaurants. I only stayed in Mostar for a day, but I think it was enough to see the most famous landmarks and experience Mostar.

RAFTING ON CANYON TARA

Last weekend I went to Bosnia and Herzegovina for the famous rafting experience on the river Tara and Drina in the Canyon Tara. And it was a very wonderful experience. I have been wanting to go since last year but kept postponing it and then summer came and the waters are slow so I had to leave it for next year. Canyon Tara is famous for its white waters which are perfect for rafting. Also, Tara Canyon is the deepest canyon in Europe and second deepest in the world after the Grand Canyon. 

LIFESTYLE

I am the type of person that loves writing everything down, planning every single thing and making lists (I think I have a list for everything starting from what to buy when grocery shopping to a perfume wishlist). I consider myself to be really good at time managment and able to multitask but also juggle multiple things at the same time, and big part of that ability has been using a planner/agenda. I’ve using one since I was in middle school and that’s one habit that I do not plan on ever changing. 

TRAVEL, PUERTO RICO

LIFE IN PUERTO RICO [PUERTO RICO TRAVEL GUIDE]

One of the perks of working remotely is the ability to work from anywhere in the world, as long as there is electricity and stable internet connection. So for a month together with my boyfriend we decided to live in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is located on the Caribbean, meaning that it has beautiful beaches and nature. Not that many people know, but Puerto Rico is an US territory, if you need a visa for the USA you will also need an US visa to visit Puerto Rico, for US citizens tho you only need your ID to visit Puerto Rico. The island is a fusion between American, Spanish and Caribbean culture, an island that has many things to offer from nature, to beautiful sandy beaches to wonderful historic sights.
