From Passion to Profession

­A language story about Lindsay Williams Dobuan is a language spoken by about 100.000 people on an island off the coast of Papua New-Guinea. It is a small language, rather unknown outside perhaps of linguistic circles. Yet, in a small-town library in the middle of England, language enthusiast Lindsay Williams was quite surprised to stumble […]

Settling in unknown territory

How do we fit in a whole new foreign environment? As a foreword, I think it is important to underline each experience is unique. There are as many possible scenarios as there are travelers. Having said that, I will happily share my own experience. The transition between the preparation of a stay abroad, and then […]

Зошто Европа? – Рефлексија на нејасни термини

Уште од времето на античките Грци, погледот на светот вклучувало три различни континенти: Африка, Азија и Европа и ова гледиште е сè уште присутно во современиот начин на размислување. Денес многу луѓе зборуваат за Европа, но изгледа дека секој зборува за нешто друго. Изгледа дека не постои јасна идеја за тоа од каде започнува Европа […]

Why Europe? – Reflections on a blurry term

Babai im dikur ishte një entuziast i biçikletës derisa një lloj aksidenti e largoi atë nga çiklizmi për një kohë të gjatë. Një herë më tha se një nga shembujt e tij është Thomas Meixner: një njeri i moshës mesatare nga Saksonia-Anhalt në Gjermani, i cili udhëtoi pothuajse në gjithë botën në udhëtimet e shumta […]

“Life is a journey. Don’t take along so much luggage!”

My dad used to be a bicycle enthusiast until an accident kind of threw him out of cycling for a long time. He once told me that one of his role-models is Thomas Meixner: a middle aged man from Saxony-Anhalt in Germany, who travelled almost the whole world on his numerous bike-journeys. Ever since I’ve […]
