I miss home

Erasmus abroad is amazing but at one point you can get homesick. For the second time, I’m getting homesick in my last month here. The good news is that I somehow managed to fix the shitty internet in the dormitory and I can finally blog from my laptop. Also, recently I started having some health…

Life without Internet

Life in Croatia is wonderful but not when it comes to Internet. Probably I got used with the amazing Internet speed my country has to offer but here having Internet is a luxury. I tried my best to somehow reconnect my laptop to the Internet in the dormitory but damn it seems I am basically…

Melfest 2017: Semifinal 1 Results

Okay. It was a terrible day. Firstly my internet stops working on my laptop, thus here I am, blogging on my phone.  Secondly, Dinah Nah fails to qualify in Melodifestivalen and she doesn’t even make it to Andra Chasen.  The overall show was pretty nice, I am very happy that Ace qualified in the final…

Erasmus Diary 07: They made me King

Last night ESN Zadar organized the last party for first semester Erasmus students. It was amazing! We laughed a lot, we hugged a lot and sadly it was time to say goodbye to some of the most amazing people I ever met. ESN organized the Erasmus Awards and for some reason (I’m still shocked) people…

Like no one is watching

Probably the most valuable thing that I learned in the past few years is to be myself. We live in a world full of fake people, fake aspirations, fake impressions and so on. The most amazing thing in life is when you can actually be yourself without any fear and without any restrictions. People can…

Norma & John wins in Finland

Finland was my least favorite country in Eurovision but not anymore. Their national selection is known for the strong diversity and weirdness and every year they shock us with various acts that are way too crazy. This year they had 10 songs and I loved two of them: Emma (my favorite) and Norma & John.…

Eurovision 2017: National Finals Season

We are officially in the heat of the National Finals Season. Everything started with Albania picking its entry in late December then Belarus and Georgia yesterday evening. I always thought that the previous winner influences somehow the out-coming of the next edition. Due to Jamala’s ballad we will have a year full of ballads (2/3…

Erasmus Diary 06: Trip to Sali

Croatia is full of amazing and breathtaking places. I never though this country can be so rich in nature landscapes but damn, mother nature truly blessed them. This weekend we went on a long trip to Sali, a huge island located 50 minutes away from Zadar by ferry. Our trip mostly focused on discovering natural…

Erasmus Diary 05: Winter in Zadar

It’s that time of the year when you complain about snow, cold and annoying carols…well, that’s not the case in Zadar, except the annoying carols. It’s the second year in my life when I had a Christmas without snow and I don’t regret it because it was the best Christmas I ever had. Weather here…
