Final preparations – Middle East trip.

On Friday we’ll embark on our first long term travel: a one month pilgrimage in the Middle East. Below is a rough route that may suffer significant changes, as we prefer to be flexible and avoid imposing a strict plan to follow. We’ll simply go with the wind 🙂 , relying mostly on advices from […]

A lifetime in numbers.

Have you ever wondered where time – our most precious resource – flies away during a lifetime? Below are some rough statistics for routine activities taking place in an average human lifespan: – sleeping ~ around 20 years; – working ~ 9 years; – TV ~ 5 to 10 years; – internet ~ 5 years; […]

Overcoming obstacles.

There are many ways to introduce this kind of topic.. I’m going for a leap of faith and choose the worst one: I’m not the best person to talk about this subject, because I still have a lot to learn and a long way to master it. This was also the main reason I postponed […]

Hidden in plain sight.

Needless to say I was […]

Time is money…now I finally get it.

I’ve known this saying about time since forever, but I’ve never fully grasped the concept. This week I’ve read (and listened) to some really interesting topics, related to optimal time usage. Now I know that there is no such thing as “free time”, and all the time spent doing nothing, costs us highly. To put […]
