Champions League evening in bars of Siedlce

Semi finals of Champions League were on that evening. It was the game between Atl├ętico Madryt and FC Bayern Munich. First of those teams I liked for the last few years. I like the style of football they play. I heard from time to time about their successes while living in Spain. On the other side Bayern Munich with the best Polish player playing for them – Robert Lewandowski. I wanted to watch this game. I was emotionally connected with both teams.

Is close relative death a big traumatic experience?

As yesterday a very close person of mine again started to cry while thinking about one close relative death which occurred exactly 2 years away from yesterday I begun to imagine how may I feel if someone close to me will be gone. I know I may be very shallow writing things which for many probably state an obvious (some already said that I am, because I don’t understand how it is), but questions like:

  • would I feel pain inside??
  • would I cry?
  • would I avoid to talk about the topic?
  • would I be angry if someone would try to ask me about ‘the missing person’?
  • will I have nightmares and wake up sweating and shaking at night?

At this point of my life an answer to all those questions is NO.

Close relative death is unavoidable

Everyone have heard about Darwin and his theory. I hope that you’re aware that it’s still valid nowadays. Human being is just one of the many species of flora & fauna which may be found on the Earth. Nothing and noone lives forever – look at the dinosaurs! In my opinion everyone needs to be aware that his fish or cat would die one day as would do one’s mommy, daddy or close friend. That’s unavoidable! Should we be sad that someone passed away? Of course for a couple of first weeks may be hard without someone by our side, but the world is still spinning whether we want it or not. Every human being lives to be happy, so I have an advice for all those which are iClose friends by the tablen sorrow: get a grip and continue your life. You are an amazing person and there’s many cool people around you. Smile and give a good example for others. Remember your smile may change someone’s life.

I agree that close relative death may be a painful experience, because of that do the most
of today! It’s very important to appreciate what you have and who you have around you. It won’t be forever. You can start to learn from the movies. Do you know Furious 7?

Ibiza beach walk to remember

I want to share a story from my unusual Ibiza beach walk which happened to me and my friend one day. As usual we were passing by Playa den Bossa as we did almost every day during summer having our relaxing Ibiza beach walk. We didn’t expect something different may happen that day.

In the morning we spoke with our manager and he told us that in August the most unusual things happen on the island of Ibiza. He said that the most beautiful moments and experiences are made in this month, but, on the other hand, people have accidents, some die, etc. Sounded scary at first, but things happen everywhere we thought and didn’t expect nothing crazy to happen.

Ibiza beach walk like no other

That day was after the full moon. On a days like that more than a half of the sand of the beach is under 5cm cover of water. It’s nice to walk on that water, because is pleasantly hot, but it is more difficult to sit down and relax on those days. During our Ibiza beach walk we met some Russian people and had a chat with them. Couple of minutes after when we finished, my friend told me that he saw a very beautiful girl while we were with Russians, but she had got very sad eyes. I looked in her direction, however couldn’t see her face, because was walking towards the ocean. Everything seemed cool until the moment that she was walking deeper and deeper in her dress on and some sandals. She started to swim to the canoe tied to a boy marked end of secure swimming area. 2-5 minutes spent there and sh jumped off and swam away from the beach still in her dress, but left her shoes in the canoe… Usual Ibiza beach walk gave us a thrill at that moment. We felt that something was wrong, but we could only watch, when suddenly one of the lifeguards, a girl, jumped into the water to follow her. She swam fast and catch up with the other one, but it was already very far. The sad eyes girl stopped for a moment, but wasn’t convinced to go back and carried on to swim away. The other lifeguards saw what’s going on and instantly jumped into a motorboat. Waves were very big, because day was windy and was difficult to push the motorboat away from the beach. They struggled for a while before could to go. We stood there like struck by the lightening and watching with strange feeling in our hearts… If only we asked why she was sad everything could have been different. The sad girl unwillingly get on board and they came back all together. Probably headed to some doctor right away.

I was there thinking why I didn’t pay attention to her at all when my friend noticed she was sad. I am sure if he were given a second chance he would have spoken to her. That’s the lesson.Try to notice people around you and if you’re able make someone happy don’t hesitate to do that. Your smile and a good word may change somebody’s life.

Paris attack & Crimea attack. What both have in common?

Paris attack is a topic which is on the mouths of people all around the globe for last days. Does it mean we should be scared to go to France? Do you remember a story of Crimea? Wasn’t it similar to Paris attack? Listen to me carefully, because I was in both those places few months before all that mess happened.

Crimea attack 2014

I was lucky enough to plan a month trip to Ukraine with my good friend in summer 2013. We’ve been in Kiev, Odessa then in Crimean Simferopol & Sevastopol and more. Our main destination was Kazantip, but we fell in love in all places we’ve seen. The Crimean Peninsula is a very calm and beautiful place. I can say that one of the most beautiful I’ve seen in my life. Pure nature. I dreamed to go back there one day. However, now after Russians took over control there it doesn’t seem like heaven for me any more. In my mind is a question: Is it worth to go there again or is it better to live with good memories?

Paris attack 2015

Will it happen the same with the thoughts about France in my mind? Or maybe it is already happening? I was in France in April this year. Small travel before settling down in Ibiza for a while. Cote d’Azur was main place that I was spending my time. Now France may be one of the main targets of so called terrorists who will try to put enough pressure to make UEFA EURO 2016 being cancelled. I don’t thing they are able to make enough mess not being traced down and stopped soon. European police is well organized and don’t let acts like that happen often.

To summarize, France wasn’t attacked by another country, but by some group which wanted to show that is in control. This is the difference. Maybe that’s the reason that I’m still not scared to go to France again. And let’s face the truth that all places in France are better protected than in Crimea and even if something unexpected similar to shootings from last weeks Friday Paris attack happens, everything quickly comes back to normal. All people affected will be able to feel free again. One of the elements of feeling happy is being able to feel free:)
