Without giving anything away, The Alchemist is a book about Santiago, a shepherd boy who embarks on a quest to find treasure. Along the way, he encounters several obstacles that makes him learn a lot of lessons in life. We can relate a lot to his character as an ordinary person who wants to succeed in life. All of us have our dreams and this book sets you on the right path to achieving them. This book is so addicting that you won’t notice how much time flies by while reading it. Furthermore, it will make you realize things you never thought you’d realize. It is no secret we need all the motivation we can get to achieve our dreams. Good thing, Pablo’s book makes you realize that there are certain things that are too impossible and things that are realistic.
While preparing for a trip I tried to remind myself of the last visit. It was the end of elementary school so everything is a little bit foggy, things that stayed in my mind are hospitality of people. Tourguide told us that in Greek Mythology this city was depicted as a place for refugees and even today locals are very warm to visitors.
It is October… The time of streets filled with a smell of baked chestnut, crunchy leaves, and cozy sweaters has finally arrived. Woods are dressing red and gold sweaters giving all the essence of the earth to be inhaled in one breath, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea. For me, this is the smell which gives me feel of the home. If someone writes a book of most beautiful pleasures on Balkan this would probably be one of the main topics in that book. Balkan Hygge, some would say.
Looking through the bus the outskirts of the city didn’t give a big promise for a great town. Rusty and old neighborhood gave an impression of a forgotten city between two big dalmatian centers. Split and Zadar are the places from which you can easily come to the Sibenik, there are a lot of flights to these towns and from there you can use a bus to your final destination. After arriving at a bus station everything looked much better. City has familiar Dalmatian design with a beautiful seaside hang-outs and quaint alleys and squares. In Croatian history is known as a city which is built and maintained by Croatians. Other cities like Split and Dubrovnik are founded by other cultures.
