Sunsets are like…

Sunsets are like unique people, who we can meet only once in the life time. Even if you would spend every evening of your life watching the sun hiding after the horizon, you would not be able to see two of them looking exactly the same. Because magic of the moment affects us in a very different way, speak to our imagination, show us illusion created by light but also by our emotions.

Sunsets are like scenery made by the great artist, to give us a moment of contemplation and chance to think about immaterial things influencing on us and our surroundings.

Sunsets are like memories of the first sweet kiss…

Golden Cage

Walking around old palaces of former rulers of Turkey, India or Arabic countries let you always, sooner or later, find a special place – Harem.
I had the opportunity to see harem rooms in Spain, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, India and several other places in the world. All were enormously decorated and luxuriously furnished. They had also beautiful gardens and fountains with life-giving water.

All that places made me wonder, and I am curious, did you, my dear reader, have you ever wondered how it was exactly to live there?

Brand new

Brand new – me!

Summer time can give you lots of topics to write about, or non. Well, I got unfortunately – non, and I’m going to treat it as a challenge!

As you can see (if you have visited my blog before) I made a few changes, both visual and content. Some categories were removed, some changed place, and also you can find few new one. Hope it will make my website more user friendly.

I’m going to keep up with Motivation Monday, in a brand new form of rules to reach your own happiness (First two posts can be found HERE and HERE), I will not give up on travel topics (including cooking from places all around the world) and self-publisher tips, but I’m gonna add my own reviews of books, tv series and movies. Nope, it does not mean it will be connected with fresh – new coming titles (ok, maybe a little), but also with the things which came into my hands in the last days – old one too.

There will be more content from my point of view, less boring facts, which can be found in every book.

So I hope you will enjoy new, refreshed idea of Monika’s Journey. Com!

Life is a journey…

Any, even the longest journey begins with the first step, or rather thought of it.

It is born from the desire of knowledge… See … Experience something new, something that will move our world and bring into it some new quality, enrich it internally …

The first step I put centuries ago, buying a ticket to the first independent expedition into the unknown. That time I didn’t know much about other countries, only some main stereotypes…

Now, after thousands of days reading about the different parts of the world and weeks, if not months, spent on traveling, I learn an overview of the history, religion and “must see” of many corners of the globe …

Therefore, the time to take the next step … verify the knowledge … lead to the confrontation with the ability to talk about all the wonders to others…

But travel is not my only love… I am a person of the word, this is why you will be able to read here some parts of my books, and learn about difficulties waiting for self-publishers…

Start with me the greatest journey – discovering life…
