Stuck in Paradise // Reflections of a World Traveler

“Things happen for a reason!”, a common phrase most or all of us have heard at some point. We hear it at work. We hear it at home. While we travel. On the road.

My 5 Days in Kosovo

While you can find yourself in so many arguments of whether or not Kosovo is a nation or not, statistically, most of the world recognizes it as a nation while some don’t. Number one is Serbia. But I am not writing this to argue it’s status, I could be on this topic forever. And my time in Kosovo was not to bring up the topic and start debates. Just like the rest of the Balkan...
