Finally in Sarajevo!

I’M HERE! And I’m super happy about it…

The feeling of being here doesn’t compare to anything else in the world.

The drive from Tuzla Airport felt like a lifetime. Although I had some company and didn’t have go alone.

The fact that things are done a bit different down here was evident in the fact that a taxi, that’s pretty much falling apart came to pick us up. I had booked transfer from Tuzla to Sarajevo via the airline. It said online they used mini vans to transport people. Well we didn’t get that! The driver was very nice and helpful but come on, let me have what I pain for.

However, I’m not gonna let that ruin my trip. I’m here to have fun, and I will…

After I arrived and let everyone know just that I got some lunch and went to the grocery store. Took a nap. And now I’m at my favorite spot, Vatra Café at Sarajevo City Center. I had to pick up a few things and soon I’m meeting up with my fave, Linda.

Next stop Sarajevo

I’ve been waiting since October!

I’m used to going there every few months but I haven’t been since October of last year. I cannot wait to see all my family and friends and walk along the streets of Sarajevo. It brings me joy, inner peace and fulfillment.

See you soon my love! ❤

I leave tomorrow, but before I get on the plane I’m spending some time with my partner in crime!

Help me choose!

You guys, I’m going to Sarajevo in a week and whenever I’m there I buy a new bag. Actually I buy one whenever I’m travelling.

I found these two that I really like. I might find something else while there but if I don’t help me choose between these two.

Which one is your favorite?

The Maze Shopper

So, everyone that knows me knows that I have to pick up a new bag whenever I travel. And as I do travel a lot I have collected quite a few bags. Different styles, colors and by different designers. The newest one I have is this Parfois bag, called the Maze Shopper in taupe! I absolutely love it. The size is perfect for me and my everyday life going to work and traveling. It fits my computer along with everything else I bring on a daily basis and that’s why I love it so much. I picked it up at the Parfois store, at Alta in Sarajevo!

BH Dragons

So, my beloved country, Bosnia and Herzegovina is in the World Cup for the first time ever. This whole journey has been about so much more than football. It has brought the people closer and united us as a country and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m proud of the players for giving it their all, not just for themselves but for every Bosnian soul all over the world. We lost out first game to Argentina 2-1, Messi scored of course. But, it doesn’t even matter, we will rise and we will win the next two games and advance in the World Cup, I’m sure of it.

GO BOSNA

#prayforbosnia

Friends, followers and amazing people of the world. I ask you to please donate to the people of Bosnia. 20 years ago there was a war that tore my country apart and now this. This is the worst flooding in the last 100 years and people have lost everything. The worst part is that it doesn’t seem like the rain is gonna stop any time soon!
You can donate via Red Cross or find a local organization that is helping.
If you do donate please let me know by emailing me;
ellviisa@yahoo.com

Thank you!

#smotra2014

So, every year three of the biggest Bosnian organizations in Sweden organize a Day of Culture which includes song and dance. This year was no exception. We were in Borås, Sweden 9-11 of May. It’s a lot hard work but always a lot of fun. My job this year was really stressful. I went from speaking at the opening ceremony to actin as a backstage manager to collecting money for charity to helping people out with whatever they needed. Didn’t really get to watch the show at all.

Anyway, here are some of the official pictures and some other day I’ll do a post with my private pictures.
