I don´t know if I´m getting affected by travel writing that I´m doing at the moment or the excruciatingly long winter that has just started to turn into beautiful spring, but as soon as the sun comes out in Bratislava, I start to feel like a tourist here. I´ve lived here on-and-off for four years now and whenever the sun sparkles on the Danube river and the cobblestones in the old town are warm and inviting, I feel like I´m on holiday. Even when I´m incredibly busy working or studying and have no time for holiday activities.
I walk through the streets of our capital as though they are my catwalk. I´m more confident, happy and imagine that all the people can see it, too. Sometimes I get a weird stare from passers-by for my enthusiastic spring outfits, but I don´t mind at all. I feel like singing all the time and when I saw a guy dancing on this roller-blades in the centre of the city the other day, I possitively envied him his courage and the fact that he enjoyed what he was doing without having a care in the world. I thought: „That´s a way to live!“ and when I went running yesterday, I danced a little, too 🙂 Sometimes it really doesn´t matter whether other people think you are crazy, when you´re happy with yourself. And when I live in London or New York one day, it won´t matter anyway. I can´t wait to live in a place where you are freeely accepted for who you are and nobody gives a damn 🙂
I guess you can see that Spring has quite a possitive effect on me. I can´t help it. Less layers, more colors, flowers blooming, musicians in the old town playing gleefully, it all makes me feel good. What are you up to these days?
