It’s been more than a year and I haven’t finished my story of the Greece trip. I’ve just finished the 100 Happy Days challenge on my other blog, http://agframe.tumblr.com/
So now is the time for a new (old and unfinished) challenge: to finish my story of Greece once and for all! It must be done until september 10th. It’s a bit more than two months - totally doable. Why the september 10th exactly?
Funny how things sometimes happen in unexpected ways. All this time back home, I was reaching back to Ohrid, to the south. I was dreaming, seeing, thinking, gathering the information from the internet…all because of some magnetic force virtually pulling me there.
Being aware of how things work in life when you have no money and no cheap direct flights to your dream destination, in the reality I was looking North even though the dreams were in the South. So I applied for Erasmus exchange in Finland.
Now I’ve ended up with a flight ticket to Spain. Finns did not take me. At least for the first study semester. So I got an opportunity to apply for those universities having the latest application deadlines. South of Europe, of course. Barcelona!
I had never had intention to visit Spain. It’s considered to be one of the worst European countries for hitchhiking, so it was off my plate by default :D Portugal - yes, because it’s the furthest place to go in Europe; Italy - of course (the art, the food, the architecture), Balkans & Greece - checked; Croatia has been on my waiting list for a looong time…
And now I’m learning Spanish, knowing nothing about the place except the common stereotype-rubbish and a bit of Spanish art & architecture. I don’t like the most of the Spanish films I’ve watched, though. I don’t even know any Spanish people personally (and that’s truly weird)!
So It’s going to be an absolutely new reality for me. New people, new places, new thoughts hopefully… Exactly what I’m always looking for!
And most importantly - this blog will not die, it has turned out to be sustainable! When creating agnese in the south (and not agneseinmacedonia or agneseinohrid or agneseinbalkans),some part of me probably knew I’ll be attached to the south more than I could ever expect.
Looking forward for it!
I’ll keep you updated again! Cheers! ^_^
