My Love of Travel

So I'm very passionate about traveling, my big and expensive dream is to see, Egypt, New York, London, New Zealand, Tokyo and Zimbabwe. By my choices of citys you can guess that I love big citys in which the feel the rush of life is so strong that it enchants you. You are probebly wondering where does Zimbabwe fit into the picture? be honest, at first it was the name that caught my attention, but after a little research and off course with the help of Google I found out a lot more. There are great and exciting opportunities to volenteer in Zimbabwe and I hope that I one day, I will have the money to go down there and continue to help build the independent country Zimbabwe strives to be.
(Just want to mention that my amateur research was not so thorough)

As much as I love to discover new places there is nothing like revisiting a place you've been before. At the top of my list is Paris, the streets, the old history and art, throw in the incredible atmosphereinto it and you have the place on earth, I could walk around for hours, while drinking cafĂ© au lait and eating pastries, sit in Les Tuileries or gazing at art in the Louvre.
Greece is yet a place i'd enjoy to revisit. Samos is the holiday resort of my childhood. I have only been to the islands of Greece three times, but I loved it so much that I can't wait to see it again.

Writing this has been like going though the river of my memories and there is nothing like it.

An Introduction That Ended on a Sidetrack

You know, I have never really introdused myself?

Well, it's about time!

Hi! My name is Nellie, I'm a moody, kinda serious, yet funny eighteen year old teenager, that loves food and in the food catagory; mostly cheese, and broccoli is my, go to food(believe it or not!).

Now that we are talking food, I'm a vegetarian for reasons I'm still trying to articulate properly without accusing or offending anyone, so to explain my reasons I have a quote from The Fault In Our Stars(which you can read a little about here). When the maincharacter asked 'why no meat', she answered " I want to minimize the number of dealths I am responsible for" which by my standards, are the best answer to this date and it will also be mine until, I on my own, come up with something better.

I love to travel, actually I love it so much, that I have written a whole post about it! Which I will, post at the end of the month

As you can guess from this blog, I like to write. One day I aspire to become a auther even though, I will be the only one to know. I don't care if I won't be published, it's  the accomplishment that matters to me. The only person standing in the way, are myself and my astounding ability to procrastinate. Writing is not easy and hard stuff are hard.

It seems I got on a sidetrack, but it's okay because I think this is all you need to know, for know at least. If you want to know more about me and my everyday life, maybe you will find something out by reading some of my blog posts or trying to read between the lines.

Poem Tuesdays; Twillight/A gypsy

Poem Tuesdays is back, and in this week I have found a beautiful poem by Scott Fitzgerald.

Come, wander where the firefly gleams;
Night's mingling with day.
Come soon for all the summer beams
Fade slowly away.
Night will burn you with its kisses;
Day will charm you with its eyes,
I'm waiting for the twilight time
Where mystery lies.

Love's sweeter in the afterglow
Born over the years;
Red roses when their beauties go
Hold laughter and tears.
Gold is fading in the yellow,
Yellow melting into gray;
Eve's perfumed with jessamine.
Farewell to the day.

Have a great Tuesday!

The beauty and awkwardness of first kisses

Do you remember your first kiss?

That first, either planned or completely spontaneous moment when two lips meet.

I find these story's both adorable and interesting, because it says something about the person that tells the story. Maybe the one that made "the move" was very nervous or maybe it was a decision made just before the actual kiss. Who knows? I don't. Sure, sometimes the subject comes up between friends, but it's nothing you tell to a stranger.

"Hi, let me introduce myself; my name is Anna. My first kiss was with this boy, at this age and so on."

It would also be a bit odd. That is at least  how I would feel, if someone introduced themselves that way, but also that the person would be really outgoing and that's never a bad thing.  

The theme of first kisses is exciting, maybe I could write a book about that, since I have that 'writing a book dream'.

You say spinach, I say pizza!

When you normally think of spinach, a taste of bitterness comes to mind, but when I think of spinach my thoughts are, mm yummy pizza! There is simply nothing better on a lazy night, then a spinach pizza dripping of mozzarella cheese, filled with spinach just so it isn't so unhealthy with all that lovely cheese.

Pizza is always a little better when you make it yourself and therefore I want to give you guys, my recipe!

I don't really use exact measures, given that it depends on what you like.
I would advise you to put a lot of spinach on the pizza, because it shrinks in the oven and put the cheese on top. By the way, you don't need a stone to make pizza!

We are a little lazy and busy in our everyday, so we are using ready-made pizza dough.

You need:

Mozzarella cheese
Grated cheese of your choice
A basic tomato sauce
Fresh or dried basil

And voila, after using only 10 minutes on making your dinner and 20 minutes in the oven, you got yourself an almost homemade pizza!
