I plan on doing all the things that make me happy and that I WANT this year, no matter what other people think.
I wanna work hard on building this ellviisa.com brand and also bettering my self and my life from every aspect.
I also have a lot of exiting things to look forward this year one of them is being a maid of honor at my best friends wedding this summer. I can’t wait!!! I wanna be there every step of the way, the planning has already started and the next part is a trip to Bosnia to see the wedding venue in Mostar and also help her pick her wedding dress. So exciting! I’ve never been the girl to dream about a wedding for myself but I still find this very exciting!
2 0 1 6, I’m gonna rock you!
What are some of the things you are looking forward to this year? Let me know, link your blog below, so I can check it out!
This past week has been a blessing. I got to spend it with some awesome people doing something absolutely amazing. We visited orphanages and children’s homes in Bosnia. I love giving back to the children because they don’t expect much, just love. I wish I could show you every single one of their beautiful faces but I’m not allowed to post any pictures of them. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of the scenery and me and my friends.
I’m just stopping by to say hello. I’ve been trying to get everything ready for when I’m away on vacation in the next few weeks, therefore the absence.
This weekend I got to spend some quality time with some of my fave before we all split up and head in different directions. Actually, while writing that last sentence I realized I get to see them when we are away as well.
Three weeks in Bosnia and Croatia is what I’m looking forward too…
What are you guys doing this summer. Are you traveling.
So sad to be back home from Sarajevo! This trip was one of the best trips of my life. Honestly. I got to hang out with a lot of friends and family, there was no drama and the weather was amazing. The Sarajevo derby was the highlight of the trip, for sure. In two months I’m back in my beautiful city again. Can’t wait!
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.
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!
I texted my mom and dad late Friday afternoon about them coming to visit me and they did. We spent a great evening together friday and Saturday we went shopping and to visit the grandparents.
Today I woke up before 7AM to get ready for a fun filled day in the swedish capital, Stockholm. A mere 1 h and 20 minutes later Dina and I were arriving at the station.
After a lunch meeting we went to a APU Network association dinner celebrating the Bosnian Independence Day. Because Dina is traveling tomorrow and I have a week full of meetings we had to get on a train back home at 7.30. The evening was a great success though! We got to meet some very successful and interesting people. Aida Hadžialić being on of them. She is a Swedish politician and the Minister of Education. At 28 she is the youngest minister Swedish history and she just happenes to be Bosnian aswell.
If you follow my blog you’ve read about a surprise trip I was given for my birthday. I only found out where I was going when I got to the airport early Thursday morning of last week. And just as I had guessed and hoped for, it was London.
I was going with my sister and one of my best friends lives there, so I know it was gonna be a great trip. What I didn’t know was that one of my other best friends would show up too. Actually I guessed someone else I knew was coming but I couldn’t ever guess it was Dina. Not that she wouldn’t do this for me but because it was Valentines Day weekend, and she made me believer she was spending it with her boyfriend. He even was in on it, texting me about restaurant ideas for V-day.
