How Moscow reminds me of my travels

First of all, I’ve never been to Moscow. Secondly, I’ve never been to Russia either. But yet, this postcard from Julia reminded me of my travels…

This is a postcard of The Novosibirsk State Philharmonic Orchestra  . It’s not that I am a fan of Orchestras. I do like them, but I don’t go to see them play often.

It reminded me of my travels, of my wandering around the cities. Some cities full of life and people, and some of them quiet and unnoticed. It reminded me how I walk around, looking both sides, and trying to find something in common with all the buildings surrounding me. Trying to find a single clue in the architecture, that will prove me that that country has one way of building things.

It reminds me of my walks in Valbonne, France , where parks are green and people are happy. Where they smile at each other for no reason and they wander around the city every day, for years. It reminds me of the smell of the cheese on the Friday market, the warm baguette and the olives.

It reminds me of the street of Salzburg, Austria, where Mozart’s house is. The ice-cream shop right opposite from that, where they put you more chocolate cream that you ever hoped for. The children running around, with their fingers sticky from the ice-creams they ate.

It reminds me of Genova, Italy, and the Juliet’s balcony. The shop for love stuff right on the corner, and the millions of locks there, reminding me how lucky I am. All the names written on the walls, and all the people kissing each other right there, where the most famous love story happened a long time ago.

And in the end, it reminds me of Skopje, Macedonia, my city, where people are always in hurry, but you can still see some random faces sitting in the park and enjoying life. The taste of the cold beer on a sunny day, and the songs in your head, telling you everything will be okay.

I love travelling. I miss travelling. A lot.

Le Tarn-et-Garonne

Amandine, this is a lovely photo!

Thanks to postcrossing again, I got FR-662417, a postcard from France. I love this photograph so much. The trees and the river seem so pure and untouched, and it make wonder about travelling there. France has a lovely nature. I’ve seen it for so long. Especially the fields with lavender in south France… So amazing!

Amandine, I wanted to study pedagogy. Something about the kids always thrilled me. I have spent hours and hours reading about it, and trying to figure out their psychology and how the brain works, not only for the kids, but for adults too. Freud has been my friend for so long. He’s my favorite, I must say. There is something about people that entertains me so much. How their brain works? Why do they think what they think and many other questions that I still can’t understand. It just thrills me.

Thank you for the amazing card!

Lille, France – a place for everyone

Even though I spent a lot of time in France, I spent them mostly on the French Riviera, where Cannes, Monaco, Nice, Mougines, Valbonne and Antibes are settled.

I didn’t have an opportunity to visit places like Lille, that hold a rich variety of culture and different monuments that are a must for every tourist. The special thing about Lille is that it became french with the King Louis XIV in 1667.

I hope one day, I’ll have a chance to visit it, and until then, I’ll just admire this FR-657853 postcard from the DuDu Family .
