Car in Ukraine- Enigmaticblacbird

The Summer I spent in Ukraine

Home away from Home

I’ve always thought that the home was special. It is a sacred place. This is the same in many cultures across the globe. In the home, you are at your best, yet the most fragile. When I got the news that I will be staying with a host family in Ukraine, I must admit, I was a bit scared. Travelling to a strange land was one thing, but to also stay with strangers, was a whole other thing.

Day 3 in Bali – Welcome to Ubud

It has been just over two months since my return from Bali, and am still surprised and proud of myself for going solo. I am going to finish the Bali series soon, so that I can focus on other things as well. In just under a week, I’ll be flying out again to do some volunteering (read about it here.)

In the unfortunate world of the handmaids, women have lost about every right in book, from the right to be educated & read to freedom of choice. In the dystopian world of the 1985 novel of the same name, women have limited choices; obedience or death. At times, everything felt archaic.
