11 Reasons Why Kosovo is Worth Your Visit http://www.bloggapedia.com/11-reasons-kosovo-worth-visit/ http://www.bloggapedia.com/11-reasons-kosovo-worth-visit/#respond Tue, 01 Nov 2016 12:47:29 +0000 http://www.bloggapedia.com/?p=1111 NewBorn - PrishtinaKosovo is still just a recent name introduced into the international vocabulary, although this country’s history stood strong against the hardships of the time. Well, if not for anything, then at least in the world to finally start understanding! Having declared independence in 2008, Kosovo is the world’s second youngest nation. The country is also very young in the demographic sense, where 28% of the population are younger than 15 while 50% is younger than 28 years old. However, it does not remove the fact the Kosovo is an old country – as old as you can perceive old to be! Especially, for the local Albanians, this country is all they have known for as long as people have inhabited this good old planet! Despite, the ruins left behind every strict regime and war, Kosovo still has a lot to show! Its people keep working hard to make the history known through its many historical and cultural sights, recently been unveiled also by the UNESCO World Heritage: 1. Ulpiana This ancient city dates back to the first century and has thrived during the Roman occupation and the early Byzantine era. It was one of the main spots for political, economic, and cultural activities. The stones engraved in Roman scriptures present at the site today, show its importance as the Roman province of Moesia Superior. It is believed that Ulpiana was the former capital of Dardania – the land of the ancient Illyrians, the ancestors of the Albanian people. Despite the various damages accumulated over time, it remains a major attraction for those who want to explore the oldness and beauty of Kosovo. What’s more, the site is surrounded by lush green hills! The old Byzantine Churches and Monasteries The old Byzantine Churches and Monasteries are spread out throughout various cities in Kosovo, such as in Prizren, Pejë, Graçanicë, Prishtinë, and Gjakovë amongst others. 2. The Graçanica Monastery The Graçanica Monastery was built in 1321 on the ruins of the 6th century Christian three-naved basilica, with its vibrant-colored frescoes. Graçanica is part of the Community of Serb municipalities in Kosovo, 5 km far from its capital Prishtina. It represents the medieval art of the Byzantine tradition and the luxurious Paleologan Renaissance style. Use this chance and visit another close-by and great city, Janjeva. It is an old city where Croatians and Albanians live in harmony. It has beautiful nature and land views. What’s interesting in visiting this place is the fact that it only has one way in and out of it. 3. The Visoki Deçani monastery Founded during the 14th century. Its frescoes represent the largest gallery of medieval art, including over 1000 other compositions as well as thousands of portraits. Visoki Decani monastery founded in the 14th Century – is part of the World Heritage site – named “Medieval Monuments in Kosovo”. 4. The Monastery of the Patriarchate of Peja The Monastery of the Patriarchate of Peja is another one of Kosovo’s absolute highlights, built in the 13th and 14th It has four connected churches, three main ones with domes known as Holy Apostles, St. Demetrius and Hodegetriam, linked by a monumental narthex, while the smaller church without a dome is on the side of Hodegetria Church. The church of the Holy Apostles was decorated once around 1300, then around 1350 and 1375, and twice in the 17th century. 5. Prizren The Ottoman influence is especially noticed in the town of Prizren, where the bridge is a direct symbol of that period, while the uphill fortress remains one great site to explore and hike. The religious and cultural mix of this city is a great way to show the possible harmony of diversity in a small city. There are great heritage sites as the orthodox church, followed by the Ottoman Hamam (bath) and mosques. Lady of Ljeviš is one of the most important sights in Prizren. It is a 14th-century Serbian church used as a mosque by the local population up to 1911. To visit it, you must first visit St George’s Church located at the other side of the river and then get the visit approval. It is a three-nave basilica with three altar apses and two vestibules. 6. Novo Brdo or Artanë The magnetic fortresses of medieval times built in the early 14th century to protect. Iron, silver, gold, and lead mines were abundant throughout the area. This area was especially rich and famous for its silver abundance. You can enjoy a good walk all around the medieval eight towers and its three gates. Moreover, quench your thirst in its one source of drinking water inside the fortress. There have been a number of medieval luxury good findings that to this day explain Novo Brdo’s prosperity and high status of the time! 7. The beautiful, evergreen The Rugova Canyon or Rugova Gorge is a river canyon near Pejë in Western Kosovo, declared a protected monument of natural heritage because of its mesmerizing landscapes, botanical values, beautiful waterfalls and natural baits. Mirusha Waterfalls are hidden in this picturesque region of Rugova for a fulfilling getaway.

Many people make the same mistake of booking their flight tickets during the summer season and holidays.

These periods of the year are where travel companies are experiencing the highest number of interested people to travel to their chosen holiday destinations.

Prices go VERY HIGH because of such increased demand, either for flight tickets, travel insurances or hotel reservations.

BE SMART!

Book your travel ticket, travel insurance and hotel far earlier or after the summer season!

Discover which are the cheapest periods of the year to make your travel booking.

Travel experts admit that the best time of the week to make the reservation are midweek days.

Also, try to purchase the ticket at least 11 months in advance from the summertime.

Pick a flying date that ensures you cheaper prices such as TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, THURSDAYS and SUTARDAYS.

Decide on a flying time such as EARLY-MORNING, or LATE-NIGHT, around LUNCH and DINNER time. Most of the people don’t like traveling in such e period of time and that is why there are free cheaper places in the plane you can get!

REMEMBER!

Avoid picking a flight ticket in FRIDAYS and SUNDAYS! These are considered the most expensive days to travel.

Anyhow, sometimes booking TOO EARLY doesn’t always mean you get the lowest price possible, since prices can change time to time.

Sometimes they can drop at the last minute!

Don’t Book a Single Flight!

If you are thinking of buying a single flight ticket for your entire journey than you might regret doing that, in case of planning to save money for your trip.

Many travelers today combine their travel plans. They book their travel ticket on multiple airlines and not so familiar airports. They do this to try to get the cheapest deals.

The whole thing is done to find a cheaper ticket from one company and even a cheaper one from another connecting air company.

This can be done by finding which is the cheapest place to fly into before arriving at your intended destination.

Do this through the information that OTAs offer and compare flights.

THINK OF…

…Findin a flight to your half-destination that is inexpensive.

When at your half-destination, you can ALSO look for alternative much cheaper transportation – that can be cheaper than you ever believed, instead of a flight.

However, you can also find cheap flight tickets from there to your destination – that will make you save money – something you could no do if traveling straight to your main destination from your home.

Booking a Flight Ticket Itinerary instead of Buying it

There is a possibility for you to save money by not buying the actual Fight Ticket.

Booking a Flight Ticket Itinerary instead of a Flight Ticket is the appropriate thing to do for saving you money, when applying for a VISA.

GO AHEAD!

The Embassy or Consulate DOES NOT require from you to provide the actual flight ticket without making sure you are a successful candidate to be given a visa.

Find Cheap Travel Insurance for Visa

Dedicate a time for finding a cheap travel policy, aiming to save your money for the trip.

Look over different travel insurance policies using online agents such as: CompareTheMarket, HealthCareInternational, MoneySupermarket, BudgetDirect, DirectTravelInsurance, ASDAMoney, Confused, TravelInsuranceReview and more.

You can also go directly check and compare deals offered by considered best cheapest travel insurance companies such Allianz Global Assistance, HTH Travel Insurance, WorldNomads.com and CSA Travel Protection

BE CAUTIOUS!

When buying a travel insurance policy, you can get different levels of cover such as cancellation and curtailment, delay, baggage and belongings, personal liability, emergency assistance and more.

Make sure to get only those you only need because this affects the price you pay.

Find Cheap Accommodation for Visa

In the list of documents you need to provide to the Embassy or Consulate when applying for a visa is also a letter of accommodation or proof of having reserved your accommodation in the country where you intend traveling to.

The diplomatic office wants to make sure you truly have a place to stay when abroad as well as, they want to know where you will stay the most of your trip.

The thing is that you cannot get a hotel or hostel room when abroad, in case you need to get a visa before traveling.

In such circumstance, you are required to book it while in your home country, as you need to present to the diplomatic office the needed evidencing document.

24 shocks you need to get used to when you move to Germany http://www.bloggapedia.com/24-shocks-you-need-to-get-used-to-when-you-move-to-germany/ http://www.bloggapedia.com/24-shocks-you-need-to-get-used-to-when-you-move-to-germany/#respond Wed, 11 Nov 2015 20:34:40 +0000 http://www.bloggapedia.com/?p=1029 24 shocks you need to get used to when you move to GermanyGermany is exceptionally stereotyped as regards of lifestyle and cultural habits of its native folks. German are often called rude, cold blooded, preciseness-maniacs, insensible, blue-workaholics, fanatics and sometimes even racists and over. Well, let’s take a look of what we truly must expect to happen to any person when moving in Germany. You will be impressed by some truths about German people, German food, German culture, German thinking, apart from being too laborious and neat humans. 1. “Eye-contacting” is a common introductory nonverbal language We all do have a cliché on Germans being hard-hearted folks who do not socialize readily and we don’t want to put a blame on you for it! Well, the truth is that when in Germany you realize people actually meet new folks at bars, trains, busses, trams and the most fortuitous side of it is…. being overly flirty! Germans can be eye-contact players, as they want to know you from your eyes…so when you like to have a closer communication with a German then you should definitely try eye contacting first. I am not definite but Germans must be big fans of the famous quote “Eyes are a mirror of one’s soul” Viel Glück! 2. You will ponder that drinking alcohol during lunch is “genial” Drinking in public in Germany is a non-prohibited thing. German laws agree for people to drink almost in all public spaces. As an international you get your eyes used of seeing people parading across the road and enjoying their beer and boozing around routinely. Well Germans consider beer as a food portion, not as a drink. They believe that if you drink two beers is equal to having a lunch portion. You get to frequently see people drinking during their lunch time too! Hooray!… accompany a German friend by having a glass of beer also! But forget not to stare in the eye your German buddy when clinking your beer glasses, as Germans do actually presume that if not doing that can bring a paired bad luck! 3. You will get used to “thanks” when meaning “no” The odd thing you have to agree while in Germany, will be native folks responding with “Thanks” when you offer them something to drink or eat. A “Thanks” would not be such an issue if it did not mean a “No”! So basically in German a “Thanks” will be a NO! Though they will return a “Please” when they want to tell “Yes”. Try to remember! Switch your “yes” and “no” with “please” and “thanks”! 4. You will get a different perception of a “quite day” Perhaps you would never guess it but when in Germany you will abandon shopping on Sundays. Likewise, as Sunday is named “Ruhetag” meaning “Quite Day” you will be incapable to even make noises in your home, as neighbors will be nagged about it. This is a big detriment if you ever about to consider putting in order your veranda on Sunday! Never get it wrong but during Sundays there will be none opened grocery store, very rare public transportation available and fairly few cafe bars open to customers. A good side of it is that during Sundays you can spend more time with your family/friends, watching movies, reading or sightseeing interesting places in Germany! Be positive, you definitely have the perfect situation for yoga practice! 5. You will get used carrying a bag to a grocery store Especially for smaller grocery stores in Germany, you will need to take your own bag to carry things you buy! Even if the store offers you a plastic bag, this it will be charged on you! Germans usually have their canvas bags taking with them when going to purchase daily goods. Getting an universal outlook, it is noble thing to become part of the mission of abandoning plastic bags, being aware on their destructing ecological impact! 6. You will be anxious when leaving the window open Germans have some window-open-phobia of its kind. Odd thing huh! They are confident that fresh air coming from an opened window harms health and causes neck and back pain. Do not get stunned if a neighbor warns you for the negative sites of not-closing your window! Even the doctor in Germany might diagnose you with a pain caused by an opened window. Who knows! After a while you will be worried if leaving your window and door opened yourself. 7. You will certainly not send an early birthday wish Creating friendships with German natives, you will absolutely need sensing that wishing a birthday before the exact birthday date is seen as a kind of bringing a bad luck to the birthday person. Can totally thwart and offend the person, if giving an early birthday wish! Make sure you do not rush before saying “Happy birthday”! Even that we might get your enthusiasm for being kind, we are questionable if your German friend ever will! 8. You will drop the idea of driving your bicycle when boozed Dismiss the idea of ever driving while being boozed in Germany! Rules in Germany are terrifically strict when it comes to driving hazardously, even if pedaling a bicycle. Again, once caught by German authorities pedaling with a blood alcohol level 1.6 or more, you will be called-off from your driving license and in some cases you might be required to undergo MPA (Medical psychological assessment – ger. MPU – Medizinisch-Psychologische Untersuchung). Failing on MPA test includes your driving license being revoked. Here is a piece of counsel, get a taxi to your home after having a fun beer time! 9. You will learn to super speed-up the checkout when in superstore When in Germany you will realize people being very speedy on their checkout at the grocery store. Definitely you will get that awkward feeling of someone being in rush and passing that to all the people in line. Oops…there are barely no lines in German stores! Checkout operator is a very fast one, scanning products pronto...]]> 24 shocks you need to get used to when you move to Germany

Drinking in public in Germany is a non-prohibited thing. German laws agree for people to drink almost in all public spaces. As an international you get your eyes used of seeing people parading across the road and enjoying their beer and boozing around routinely. Well Germans consider beer as a food portion, not as a drink. They believe that if you drink two beers is equal to having a lunch portion.

You get to frequently see people drinking during their lunch time too! Hooray!… accompany a German friend by having a glass of beer also! But forget not to stare in the eye your German buddy when clinking your beer glasses, as Germans do actually presume that if not doing that can bring a paired bad luck!

3. You will get used to “thanks” when meaning “no”

The odd thing you have to agree while in Germany, will be native folks responding with “Thanks” when you offer them something to drink or eat. A “Thanks” would not be such an issue if it did not mean a “No”! So basically in German a “Thanks” will be a NO! Though they will return a “Please” when they want to tell “Yes”.

Try to remember! Switch your “yes” and “no” with “please” and “thanks”!

4. You will get a different perception of a “quite day”

Perhaps you would never guess it but when in Germany you will abandon shopping on Sundays. Likewise, as Sunday is named “Ruhetag” meaning “Quite Day” you will be incapable to even make noises in your home, as neighbors will be nagged about it. This is a big detriment if you ever about to consider putting in order your veranda on Sunday!

Never get it wrong but during Sundays there will be none opened grocery store, very rare public transportation available and fairly few cafe bars open to customers.

A good side of it is that during Sundays you can spend more time with your family/friends, watching movies, reading or sightseeing interesting places in Germany!

Be positive, you definitely have the perfect situation for yoga practice!

5. You will get used carrying a bag to a grocery store

Especially for smaller grocery stores in Germany, you will need to take your own bag to carry things you buy! Even if the store offers you a plastic bag, this it will be charged on you! Germans usually have their canvas bags taking with them when going to purchase daily goods.

Getting an universal outlook, it is noble thing to become part of the mission of abandoning plastic bags, being aware on their destructing ecological impact!

6. You will be anxious when leaving the window open

Germans have some window-open-phobia of its kind. Odd thing huh! They are confident that fresh air coming from an opened window harms health and causes neck and back pain.

Do not get stunned if a neighbor warns you for the negative sites of not-closing your window! Even the doctor in Germany might diagnose you with a pain caused by an opened window.

Who knows! After a while you will be worried if leaving your window and door opened yourself.

7. You will certainly not send an early birthday wish

Creating friendships with German natives, you will absolutely need sensing that wishing a birthday before the exact birthday date is seen as a kind of bringing a bad luck to the birthday person. Can totally thwart and offend the person, if giving an early birthday wish!

Make sure you do not rush before saying “Happy birthday”! Even that we might get your enthusiasm for being kind, we are questionable if your German friend ever will!

8. You will drop the idea of driving your bicycle when boozed

Dismiss the idea of ever driving while being boozed in Germany! Rules in Germany are terrifically strict when it comes to driving hazardously, even if pedaling a bicycle. Again, once caught by German authorities pedaling with a blood alcohol level 1.6 or more, you will be called-off from your driving license and in some cases you might be required to undergo MPA (Medical psychological assessment – ger. MPU – Medizinisch-Psychologische Untersuchung). Failing on MPA test includes your driving license being revoked.

Here is a piece of counsel, get a taxi to your home after having a fun beer time!

9. You will learn to super speed-up the checkout when in superstore

When in Germany you will realize people being very speedy on their checkout at the grocery store. Definitely you will get that awkward feeling of someone being in rush and passing that to all the people in line. Oops…there are barely no lines in German stores! Checkout operator is a very fast one, scanning products pronto and there is a hurriedly process of paying and packing too.

If seeing some tensed gazing eyes after you, that means you are slowing down the checkout line! Germans are in flurry at a grocery store, so we advise being fast on placing products in the checkout board!

10. You will grasp that playing with pillows can lead to an assault charge

You might yell after hearing this…but is factual! Pillows are considered “passive weapons” by the law in Germany. In any circumstances consider not an interesting option playing with pillows, as if someone being hurt the authorities might charge of assaulting.

Ignore what we just said and eliminate the idea of taking-out pillows from their regular use! Sleep well!

11. You might get a restraint for playing piano at night

Cruel news if being a musician in Germany or a passionate piano player! Germans are captivated by peace and tranquility and at night hours you might get criticized by neighbors for playing piano or any other clamorous instrument. Straightly said, it is at times even forbidden by law to make noises at night hours.

Make sure you play piano during day time!

12. You learn to be punctual

Germans are fussy and strict humans! They consider being punctual as a sign of respect. If you are ever to be late for a meeting or date, make sure properly apologize and avoid happening over again. Forget not that Germans typically are too early than too late. They even make it into a party earlier!

13. You will identify that Germans are straight forward

Germans are modest conversers. They tent to orientate their talk straight to the point. Not being fan of over-discussion, they want to put the opinion clearly and quick. Sometimes you get the feeling they know only “two colored” conversation, frequently using “yes” and “no” for an answer. Indeed, we did not wanted to bring it here but occasionally they can be the absolute conversation stoppers. I guess Germans are good at “Kiss” – keeping it short and simply!

Do not get discouraged if you are trying to get an in-depth opinion by a German, as you might never get one!

14. You will acknowledge that Germans do not open themselves easy

You wished having a German best friend! Nod, Germans are tough people when chatting about themselves, their finances, their lives. They have a mania of faintly talking avoiding their discussion to their emotions, needs or losses. However, they can be very curios people about others perspectives and experiences so don’t be surprised being questioned on private issues.

15. You don’t see a big family in Germany

Is rare in Germany to see big families. According to a study made by Robert Bosch Foundation German man are scared of having families and many children. Not a surprise that the average birth per women in Germany is 1.37.

Don’t presume for a German to get adapted to the fact that you have a brother and 3 sisters let’s say!

16. You will start eating more dark bread

german-bread

You will get used to the fact that bread in Germany isn’t solely a food, but a traditional principle. As such in Germany there is an extensive assortment of rolls, regular and mini breads. Well, so far so good!

But there is a piquant and distinguishing aspect about it! Germans widely use the dark bread over the white. You will get amazed how much German traditional tasty dark bread is on the market and tables, crunchy outside and fluffy and dense by inside…and so appetizing. And surely! If one needs it, white bread such as baguette or ciabatta is kept into stores too!

At any case, the reason for reducing white flour usage is its lack of fibers, proteins and vitamins that dark one has it!

Ponder as a luck having German bread on your table each day! Enjoy it!

17. It is better to fart then to burp in Germany

This is a very sticky culture but it is true. People do not get annoyed if someone farts, let’s say while eating. Being comfortable if someone burp instead is normal!

Here is a piece of advice, make sure you burp in toilets when accompanied by a German!

18. You well get the apt meaning of work smart not hard

In Germany you will truly discern the meaning of working “smart” and “effectively”. Germans like to work and they love giving all their potential. They want to finish their task once and in the best way possible.

I wouldn’t be surprised if “productive” working hours are originated by Germans!

19. Looking for a good German joke is a mission impossible

You will learn that German humor is very rare. Germans are rated as lees funny people in the world. Some say that understanding German humor properly, one should have local language and culture comprehension. We are not sure if it is inappropriate English translation or lack of German cultural knowledge, but however the humor  is very poor.

Fine, even the fact of being the worst country when it comes to humor, it is not comical at all!

The good news is that instead Germans are authors of popular proverbs.

20. You will attend biggest Beer Festival in the World “Oktoberfest”

Oktoberfest

You will not miss a world biggest beer festival “Oktoberfest” held in Munich and “Wiesn”  by locals, with a 204 years of tradition. The festival is held in September and it doesn’t relate with the name October.

The festival is a world attraction gathering millions of local and international people! People can drink beers, socialize, visit places, get dressed traditionally and much more!

21. If you are a man you will get used with urinate sitting

sitzpinkler

This goes only for men…as Germans don’t like men standing up while urinating as its sprinkles the place around. They even have a criticizing term “sitzpinklers” used for people who pee while standing up.

Unless you want to provoke a German, don’t urinate standing up at their homes!

22. You will believe that nudity is normal

Surely you will get surprised by the fact that Germans are comfortable with public nudity, especially for the West Germany.  It’s likely for a coworker or a friend to ask you for a nude swim at a beach, at pool, hot bath or sauna, do not take it in a wrong way!

The nudity is a sign of liberty for Germans….it is so unique fact for sure! Make sure you don’t mix nudity with the sexuality, as Germans don’t!

23. You will party hard

Parties are a bomb! There are many opened bars and clubs where parties last till 5 to 7 am in the morning. Public transportation is available all the time and laws allow bars and clubs to remain open during midnight.

There are assorted beers, wines and other alcoholic and cocktails you can chose.

24.You will not wear high heels daily

This one goes for girls…even that you might have several pairs of high heels, you possibly will not need most of them in Germany. Well that is a “practical” reason for that! Walking in Germany is discomforted, as you will encounter lots of stairs and cobblestones! Sure, girls wear high heels on special work meetings or parties, but not in any case in a regular day!

After a while you will get used of taking your flat shoes for a walk!

Kosovo, was the last country to declare independence which was done in February 2008 and since 1999 after the war it was under UN mandate, by traveling around Kosovo today you will not be able to notice that there was a war just 14 years ago, everything has been rebuilt and there are construction sites everywhere you go, a country with a large number of youth has some incredible mountains both Brezovica ski center and Rugova valley, people very friendly and believe it or not the Best Machiato in the world is made in Kosovo, and it comes in many options small or big, with hot or cold milk, with cream or no cream, small one in a large cup, Machiato is a long espresso with milk, but the way milk is prepared and added it makes it unique different and very tasty, one thing you will notice as soon as you go out in Kosovo is that majority of the people drink only Machiatos during the day so you have been warned in Kosovo you will be getting a lot of Machiatos. Montenegro is another highly interesting country that has a long seaside to Adriatic Sea where during the last years huge investments towards a luxury resorts is being done specially with a booming numbers of Russian tourists Porto Montenegro is a high exclusive residence and Yacht Port, the port of Kotor is also well known place where luxurious yachts get parked during the high season in summer.  The iconic hotel Splendid was used in Casino Royale – James Bond movie.

What is interesting with the Balkans now is that It is now becoming the hotspot for tourism and all these places are unique on its own and have a long lasting traditions to share with the tourists, Yahoo travel and CNN have been reporting lately very often about their findings in the Balkans and I am going to point just a few of their findings

In 2011 CNN and Lonely Planet have ranked Albania on their top 10 list as a must visit place and the comments were that the top pick on Lonely Planet’s list of top 10 countries for 2011 may be a surprise for many people, but Albania gives travelers a taste of the Mediterranean without the crowds and the prices,

Albania has some of the most incredible beaches the breath taking views in the region of Saranda where beside beach and sea the food is delicious mostly the sea food with Italian recipes and quality at very very low prices and need to mention that the accommodation cost is also cheaper than everywhere in the region for e.g.  a standard room costs about 40 EURO per night at most of the hotels in Saranda

Every relationship goes through certain “baby” steps, each time becoming firmer and more intimate. As human beings, we are very different, thus at the point when we are only strangers the tendency to be hyper-vigilant towards others is exhausting. Moreover, it is expected of us to loosen up with time and become more relaxed and trusty, and that is hard my friend. You can never be sure of someone else’s state of mind because it’s so fluctuant and the potential for a surprise is incredibly high. Through struggles of a relationship one can not only create an idea about the certain other, but also one can learn quite a lot about themselves and their stands during the process. It would be far easier if people’s emotions would be defined by their genetic codes as certain something, and not this weird changeling combination that mutates every now and then, pretty difficult to track. Gosh, would that be boring? Yet enough with the drama. We are as we are and as such we tend to engage in various relationships through our lifetime, relationships that bring all kinds of emotions to our hearts be it joy, sadness, anger and comfort. The miraculous turnover from strangers to intimacy, this electrical mayhem than initiates’ sparkles in our eyes and butterflies in our stomach is still this irresistible mystery we all seek for. Once the enchanting journey through the clouds of the seventh heaven is over, we stop shitting rainbows and experience a reality check that is much deeper and complex and most importantly real and supposed to follow us through the days to come.

Feel good in your skin As long as you feel free to express your true being around your partner, without the need to censorship your thoughts and ideas you are off to a good start. The moment the confusing voices in your head retire is the moment your relationship start to blossom. You will of course still have doubts and difficulties when trying to make a decision or merely a point, yet no matter how ridiculous they sound, you will eagerly say them out loud without hesitating and laugh together in the end. Together to conquer the world shall be written over your foreheads. 2. Scream indepen-dance For some time now you feel like you’ve mastered the art of the relationship; there are no more white lies, hiding in the closet, improvised answers or simply hesitation stillness. Finally you have reached the point where you truly open up your heart to the significant other and embrace each other as one whole package. Stop right there. It does feel good to become one in a relationship, however very soon you will notice how much you’ve missed your old you, your individuality. Its OK to share thoughts and maybe interests along sharing a life together, yet one shall hold on to some of our own personal pursuits. Before ever being in this relationship you might have been on your own, which can be just as fun as being with someone. A relationship is supposed to bring us to share our whole potential, and not just fill up the semi-empty part of our souls. We are one whole be it in or out of a relationship, yet we seek for the certain someone to encourage all this wholeness drift. None can fill the blanks for you, so if that’s the case run away and don’t look back. 3. Evolution/Revolution The moment you realize that your partners success made you feel pride over  jealousy is that moment when you’ve accepted him as a part of your own therefore his earnings are to be your earnings as well (not speaking materially). If you are still feeling inferior to your partners growth and secretly wished him to stop and reach out for you than you might consider taking a break and thinking things through. A relationship is when two people try to push each other’s limits for the best and egoistic behavior shall take no place there.  And this applies to both of them. 4. No fixing, none is broken. A relationship is all about trust and patience. Accepting the certain other for who he/she is comes after long and intimate conversations on various issues, personal stands and requests. The moment that you decide to treat each other equally and realize that no matter how much you can disagree on whatever your partner is saying at the moment its worth giving it a shot and carefully listening until the end is the moment that you will realize how important that person is in your life. If you are looking at your partner as a make-over project , unfortunately you will both end up disappointed and hurt in the end. 5. You’re peaceful.

You know that your relationship is heading in the right direction if when opposed to a problem, you will rather sit don’t and put your arguments on the table and together decide which way is more beneficial for both, then start acting all selfish and victimizing yourself becomes your best shot.

The idea behind the relationship is to lean on each other when the situation gets out of control instead of trying to put the blame on the partner as a result of some unnecessary anxiety attack.

Again, just as every person is different, every relationship is just as different as the people in it. In every relationship one experiences no matter if its long or short, the chance to learn how to let go of some of your own worthless caprices aiming for a greater peace and serenity is presented. Ergo, from every relationship you might come up with a single piece of the bigger picture.

And that bigger picture is where every relationship shall be heading.
