STORY OF MY LIFE
Welcome to my Home page and thank you for popping in...
Story starts, on a cold October morning in 1969.
I arrived on my parents' first wedding Aniversery :D
I grew up in Bitola, with my sisiter and a bunch of cousins, spending time at my grandmother's big house...
Fondest memories of my childhood were the times when all of the familiy, including distant relatives gathered together for important celebrations of Birthdays, Anniverseries, Graduations ....
Any excuse to have party!!!
In my early teens I developed a taste for traveling, nothing too ostentatious but the Balkans and Turkey, were enough.
I was bitten by the travel bug!!!
In 1991, I moved to England, and found that England was all I imagined and more!!!!
So I stayed, for a long time. I just fell in love with England!!!
There I met my husband Simon, and then Nicholas and Neil arrived!!
We lived in Cambridge, and I still think of Cambridge as my home town.
But then, again Bitola always had a pull on my heart.
Nowdays I divide my time between Bitola and Aachen in Germany, where we currently live.
Bitola is an electric mix of Ottoman Turkish, French Mediterranean & Old Macedonian Architecture.
Place where I go to recharge my batteries, and where everybody is Welcome!!
In May 2006 another member of the family arrived, that was our little girl, Frosina Marija.
She is one tough, little girl!!
And as our two older boys, she is traveller from very early age!!
She started when she was 7 weeks old and her first VT meet was 2 weeks VT World Meet in Jerusalem in September 2008!
She also attended her first big EURO MEET in Krakow-Poland in May 2010.
Due to Simon nature of work we lived in few places around the world, and it is exiting,but the best thing of all is when I go home to Bitola
Well It was Simon's dream to go to Jerusalem and the Holy Land, and when Avi (Fruitlover), posted the VT Meet in Jerusalem, I jumped at the idea, that turned to be great Adventure!!!
I didn't know what to expect, but the moment I met the intrepid VT travellers, I knew that I had met kindred spirts.
And I made great Friends!!
Gila ( gilabrand ), Martin & Zohara ( Martin_S ), Avi ( Fruitlover ) opened their homes to us, and showed us real Israeli hospitality!
Delicious Shabbat dinner at the Brand houshold
Great BBQ evening at the Sampsons
Long night chats at Avi's
THANK YOU FOR GREAT MEMORIES!!!!!
VT is definitely one great family!
