How to pack smart!

Hi dears!

I will share with you my secrets how to pack smart. It is summer time now and everybody thinks about vacations so I hope you will find my article useful.

We live in a busy every day life and the vacations are the time we chill and relax. But before reaching the desired destination it is hard to handle with your stuffs.

So let’s start packing!

Clothing:

Depending on the case bring proper clothes. Think about the place you will be in a couple of days. For example if you go on the seaside your swimwear is a must plus some shorts, t-shirts, tops and 1-2 dresses for all the shinny girls/ 1-2 more official shirts. That’s it, don’t make it complicated. For mountain lovers warmer clothes and more pair of socks. And of course any special equipment you may have.

Shoes:

It’s summer time now – flip flops, sandals, sneakers, beach shoes/ mountain shoes. If your vacation is not very very extraordinary – this is more or less enough. One advise for the girls – if you don’t feel comfy on your high shoes, leave them at home. You all are sexy enough and with some suntan you will be so hot!

Medicines:

It is always much easier if you have some basic medicines with you. Especially if you travel abroad this can save you money. Basic medicines for the throat, the ears, to regulate your temperature, for fever. Some vitamins is a plus.

Put your bathroom stuffs in a small case. May be in the hotel they will have everything you need – check with them. In this case your brushing teeth is enough. If not, these nice stuffs on the picture below should be in your suitcase.

Girls magics – your favorite perfume, your shinny jewels and your smile!

For the airplane:

For everybody’s summer vacation – bring your sunscreen and your glasses.

I know your phone is your life – don’t forget the charger!

Last but not least – your passport, ID card and all required documents. Your money.

If you travel with your car – all documents for the car.

And you are almost ready for the adventures! Yes, I said almost, because one notebook in your suitcase will help you write your memories.

Pack smart and enjoy the summer vacations. I am ready with my luggage and soon I will be far away from my home. Can’t wait to share with you my new destination. For now I will keep it as a surprise.

I give you my summer energy!

 

 

Erasmus Plus as a way to travel

What is Erasmus plus and what are Erasmus plus opportunities?

eu-flag-erasmus-_vect_pos

Erasmus plus is a big platform, which provides young people to travel abroad and to learn new things, meet new people and discover cultures.

There are so many sources of information about what is Erasmus plus. Check here one of them: here.

Erasmus plus gives you the opportunity to go abroad because of:

  • Education – you can have a year during your bachelor or one semester during your master degree in European universities. Check your university for available opportunities and specializations abroad.
  • You can travel on youth trainings, youth exchanges, youth projects up to 12-20 days abroad on different topics matching your interests.
  • You can do EVS – European Volunteer service abroad for up to 1 year.

These activities are funded by the EU, but some of them are in countries on different continents than Europe! Because of the intercontinental agreements. So you have the chance to rock Europe and not only, but expand your travels to other continents.

The EU covers more of the expenses – you need in most of the cases only to provide pocket money. For some destinations your travel expenses are not fully covered, but still big portion of it it’s paid by the EU – more than 60 %. The money coverage is different, depending on the specific project.

I believe Erasmus plus is a must to do experience in your early 20s up to 25. As you are young and open-minded, you freely can travel and learn, meet people and create beautiful network and friends forever. You can practice, improve and learn new languages! Everybody enjoys Erasmus plus opportunities.Ask your friends who already are involved somehow in Erasmus + projects.

I have experienced the chance to be a participant in a youth trainings and exchanges. They were in Germany,France, Belgium,Romania, Bulgaria, Portugal, Spain. I applied only for topics related to my interests – business and entrepreneurship; Youth European parliament. I’ve learned in a really exciting way priceless knowledge. My teachers were creative and use only non-formal tools, so was great time and useful to be a part of all Erasmus + projects!

For all Bulgarian young people, here is the official site of the National Agency in Bulgaria. In every country there is a National Agency, where you can track the current projects available, the most updated information and you can contact them directly in case of any questions. The National Agency should support during and after the project all young participants. I personally had some issues with the reimbursement processes and contact them. I can say they are doing what they can, but are likely to help in every case.

If you are not from Bulgaria, check and find your National Agency in your country. It is an obligatory body in the Erasmus + Program in every country.

I encourage all young people to be involved in Erasmus + somehow. Even if you don’t like some project, it is always experience. Travel and feel the EU program opportunities!

Why to travel?

I believe life is not meant to be lived in one place. Depending on the places we visit and people we meet, our energy forms.

And here are my top 10 reasons to travel as much as you can.

  1. The sunset must be seen from the prospective of different countries. So and the sunrise. The rain is with different taste on different places. The sky is your guide and only if you travel you can see different constellations.20160724_203552
  2. No time to get bored. There are so many things to see!32
  3. Chance to meet new people, some of them might be life changing because of their minds and hearts.
  4. The food everywhere is delicious. It’s so annoying to eat only one kind of food. The same applies for the drinks.
  5. You can meet friends forever. I met one in Bologna, Italy .
  6. The different climates are meant to be experienced. It is challenge to be on different conditions for a while. I discovered that best works for me to be on the sea side.20150821_173305-animation
  7. While travelling you have to arrange your flights, hotels and so on. This makes you self-organized and teaches you to rely especially on yourself.
  8. It’s funny to be with your international friends and everyone to start speaking your own language.10294478_10202797438430909_2796321804030416597_n.jpg
  9. You will start feeling you can handle every situation – no matter how less money you have in your pocket!
  10. It is one thing to hear France is beautiful for example, it’s another thing to feel it. Feel more!!!31

Keep travelling!
