Man on the couch

Since the end of Februari i spend my time in the capital of Greece, Athens! I really enjoyed the city. It’s a very diverse city.

Christmas thoughts from Albania

It’s Christmas that means that we stand still and think about the people we have around us, the ones we love. We dress well, prepare the Christmas tree with lights and Christmas balls, prepare the most delicious food and eat and drink as never before. Under the Christmas tree or the socks at the chimney are stuffed with presents. A family sitting at the dining table with bright shining candles…
