All of us have been part of the school system at one point or another in our lives. We have all noticed that most of this might have been a waste of our time. The truth is the traditional educational system has been long outdated and ineffective, but it is still widely being used on a global scale. I just wanted to take the time and write my side of this.
It is only fair that I write an article about my home country of Malta, and this year is going to be a hub of events and activities since it is the European Capital of culture for 2018. The opening activities where held between the 14th and 20th of January. Valletta is Malta’s capital built on a small peninsula which is only 1km by 600m. it may be small but it is packed full of sights, when UNESCO named Valletta a world heritage site, it described it as ‘one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.
It was built in the 16th century by the Knights of St. John and Grand Master La Valette who is it’s founder wanted it to be ‘a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen’.
Happiness is the one thing we all want most in life, the one thing most of us will or have spent a good deal of our time searching for. In fact, I’m willing to bet that you are looking for happiness right now. If so, I hate to be the one to enlighten you but you’re never going to find it. The fact that any of us are searching for happiness means that we don’t really understand happiness quite yet. The reason you will not find happiness is because it cannot be found, to have it you must make your own.
If you are doing a quick tour of Prague you might want to eat on the run instead of sitting down to a meal at a restaurant, which will easily swallow an hour or two of your day. If you’re in a hurry or on a budget, try these street food options while on the way to Prague castle or exploring the old town.
Street food in Prague may not appeal to everyone but it is available if in need of a quick snack or lunch on the go. Throughout the city you can find various stalls, stands and vendors selling delicious Czech foods. Although some of the best street food in Prague is seasonal and only sold at the Christmas and Easter markets during the holidays, you can still find good street food all year round. These are the top items that you should definitely try while on your visit to Prague.
In this chaotic way we’re living everything goes by so fast, were always busy. We all need time to get away from the race. To be with our family and friends, to take care our own selves. Every so often it’s time to pause and recharge.
Currently the capital of the Czech Republic, and previously being the historical capital of Bohemia, it is certain that Prague has quite a lot to offer when it comes to history, art and culture. Getting around the city is very easy by making use of the metro, trams and buses which connect the city very well. Although most of the main attractions of the city are in the city’s old town where everything is within walking distance.
It’s the new year’s. It’s the time when everyone vows to change, turn over a new leaf and make their new year’s resolutions. Well this year it’s time to take flight. Most of us know we don’t belong where we currently are. We know we don’t belong with some of the people were around right now. We have no business doing what we’re doing right now. How long is it going to take to make that decision, to make that shift and show some courage, show some character. See the thing is; character is the ability to carry out a resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.
Everyone says they want to do something. I want to go out discover myself, venture the world, learn about my true being. But most of us would do it for a few weeks and that's it. The excitement of the moment is gone, so we quit.
Vienna, a city of culture and music. Baroque streets and imperial palaces set the stage for one of the most beautiful city’s I’ve visited in Europe. The surreal streets which seem to be on exhibition all year round, turning at every corner and finding a building more illustrious then the previous one. The city is just marvelous, I cannot find any words to describe it any better.
Whatever it is you want to accomplish or achieve, stop waiting for someone else to pick you up and take your hand. Instead pick yourself. Grab that idea you’ve got in there and take that step.
During Christmas time one thing is prominently on my mind. Most of us are so lucky to be living in the lifestyle we are currently in. It’s a first world problem to worry about Christmas decorations, Christmas presents. There are others around us who have much deeper worries. And yes, not necessarily on some other part of the world, they might be living in your street. So, as you are enjoying today and the rest of the holiday period, just keep these people in mind and this fact to empower you to keep moving forward and scale up to your dreams.
Rome, a mixture of old and new, the streets are easy to walk though, full of surprises and wonderful monuments. Wondering through the streets of Rome reminds me of the ancient roman empire. Walking past the breathtaking structures and monuments of Rome really quenches anyone’s thirst for knowledge and history.
