This weekend I visited Osijek to see my dear Victorija from the blog Blue Turpentine. It’s been a year and a few weeks since V. and I met, but I feel like we’ve known each other for years. She was the person who held my hand while I was still a newbie blogger. She encouraged me to open up a Facebook page for my blog, contact some brands at the beginning and who shared everything she knew with me to help me out, selflessly. For that and meeting this girl in general, I’ll be forever grateful. Our every adventure together ends up with a bunch of pretty joyful photos and fills me up with so many emotions.. 🙂
This time I stayed late in Osijek after our hang out and explored some more by myself as I usually do. That resulted in a total melt down of my emotions. Place where I spent a few hours before my ride home was just before the train station entrance, filled with gardens, trees, fields and a rail road in the middle of it. The rail road so familiar to me because it was the one I traveled to school and back every day from Vinkovci to Osijek, for four years of high school. Every time I would pass by that part of the city I would gaze outside and imagine what kind of people live in those cute little houses, how they spend their late afternoons planting flowers and veggies while the last rays of sunshine pass them by. Walking through those fields, listening to birds and breathing that warm air, a familiar feeling came over me. Like I’m reminded of life in the most beautiful way.. Few days ago my mom told me about a lady that came over all the way from across the country to see the doors of her passed away grand parents home because she kept dreaming about how she couldn’t lock the doors. She was there for only few moments and then went home, home that was more than 7 hour ride away. She had to make her peace. Visiting that place in Osijek was a real trip down the memory lane. It was me making peace with every unresolved emotion I ever had. Every doubt, fear, complex, sadness, worry, all gone just like that.. I still can’t believe that all it took was walking down that rail road.
I’m one of those people who believe that the Universe always sends you the right experience you need for the evolution of your consciousness. I’m gonna be grateful for this day forever. 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy these photos like I enjoyed my walk on which I took them. Sea of love, S.
