Morning wonderful people! Here we are back home from a trip to Kosovo where we had a family get-together just for fun. Yesterday driving back we had the most amazing view I have ever experienced, and I have experienced a lot of them believe me, well most of you have seen most of them as I have blogged about them and showed pictures. This was while driving along Kukes mountains, it was dark, cloudy and rainy except for this little what you could call a “space” in the sky where sunlight peeked down giving these rays of light which spread out like spotlights. It was amazing, the iphone camera doesn’t do it justice but it was the best that I could do considering the circumstances. See for your self and enjoy!
Good Morning everyone! This Summer has been great, and long. Maybe a little to long actually. Our Summer started at the end of May you could say. In June we were in Sweden for 3 weeks, after that there has been at least 10 trips to-and-back from Kosovo starting July- Now. Those trips usually take 3 hours to get there and 3 hours back. But i`ts been because of fun reasons that we took those trips. Seeing family members, relatives, going to weddings, waiting for my parents to come from Sweden and so on, and so on. It`s been like a week there and a week here. Back and forth the whole time. But it was by choice of course not by force or anything like that. It`s been great, really as I mentioned it spending time with people you love has made all those hours of driving worth it. The time in the car is kind of our own family time together. Now starts the what you could call “the real life”. Today especially is a big day because our kids start kindergarten and 3rd grade. A very fun day for mommy, especially!! I guess for the kids too hehe, I`m sure 😉 . I`ts going to be nice getting back to the routines. Another year here it comes!! 🙂
So the pictures are endless, but I can at least give you a quick review so you get an idea of the fun we`ve had.
Peace & Love everyone for now!
Hi guys! I wanted to post some pictures from Kosovo which I took during our recent stay there. The countryside is one of my favorite places to spend quiet, and relaxing time with the kids. Not just because of the fact that there is so much to see and eat over there, but because of the friendly and welcoming relatives/people that live there. Summertime means growing time, on the ground and on the trees that we can enjoy. From watermelons, corn, cucumbers, peaches, plums, apples, pears, mulberries, and many other healthy things. All these things grow fresh on our grounds where I grew up. The kids love to pick and eat all these things, me too of course. Especially now when I am pregnant. The Doctor told me that the baby is growing better than expected, I said it must be all the delicious fruits that I am eating. Anyways here are some pictures from the amazing and peaceful place that I like to visit every now and then. Hope you can see the beauty that I see there!
Stacking up for winter.
Delicious green, sour apples.
The other house where my uncle lived in before the war. It`s not livable anymore.
The house post war casualties, there is a bunch of grape branches embracing it now. The grapes are eatable, but the house unlivable!
See the kids picking mull-berries in the far background??
Here they are on, by and about to climb on the mulberry tree. My favorite berries of all!! Ever tried them before??? Here is how they look like.
So what do you think, I took you through a little history of mine through some beautiful pictures. I hope you liked them.
Hi guys!! Remember me? Yes I know it`s been a while, but I told you I was planning to go to Kosovo over the week, and spend time with my parents and relatives. It has been a wonderful week catching up on good old times and just remembering where I grew up. A lot of memories came back to me when I was a child and my childhood in Kosovo. I feels like it was 100 years ago that I was a child hehe. Here are some photos of the wonderful green environment I have been in this last week. I sure needed it. Taking some time of from the usual everyday here in Tirana. 🙂 Hope you like them!
Grandma and Erand!
My uncles place where they go to enjoy the green fields, that the kids love to play in.
Their Beautiful Cabin. The best place to be in this time of year. Check out the pear trees in front.
There are so many more pictures I took, I`ll post more later.
