Auswitz Birkenau

Through the valley of death we shall seek our heart. Those who laid their lives believing that a liberation shall come in the mid silence of the night. The famine, executions, torture and brutality of each individual who suffers demoralized their humanity. The unending arrivals of the innocent children, the young and the old, men and women lost their lives hoping that there’s a better life waiting for them.

This symbol of human cruelty, still on going nowadays,  just in different forms. It’s a vicious cycle that the ones who have the power have the control. We, the righteous, are selfless hoping that we are one united nation.

32bd59c6-c13e-43ed-b407-41d1fa7295ac

1.United States was the main country I was hoping to live in since I was in college….why I’m in England? Let’s just say what’s meant to be is meant to be…

img_0167

2. I’m a secret shopaholic/hoarder… check underneath my bed, I have tons of shoes (high heels) that’s never been worn since I got them… I am in the process of slowly letting them go as I’m sure it will be there forever. I love clothes, fashion and good pieces hence kellydimple’s blog was born.

3. I love travelling..it keeps me young at heart. When I travel it makes me a brand new person, it’s like an oxygen to my bloodstream giving me sufficient life to live.

731371c2-a262-472e-8860-9ceb0a72ac15img_3155

Last year, I travelled almost every month, my passport had a blast of stamps for the year 2016! I’ve been to Lourdes (France) Venice, Milan, Padua, Lake Como (Italy) Prague (twice, it’s a beautiful place why not!) Copenhagen (Denmark) Berlin (Germany) Krakow, Wieliczka, Auswitz Birkenau (Poland)

4. I’m a very emotional person. People sees me as a strong one but deep inside me is a soft hearted creature. I believe that’s why this blog of mine was created to jot down my feelings, insights, opinion and beliefs. Sometimes I wonder how to become a stone hearted so that I won’t feel the pain if someone hurts me bad.

img_3451

5. I’m a night person. I’m awake during the night and sleep at daytime. My circadian rhythm is hard to please. That’s why working night shift is my preference but sometimes I would like to be a normal person to see the daylight specially during spring and summer time. (Time check:0620am right now which I haven’t slept yet since yesterday afternoon.. I’ll be in bed snoozing while you are reading this blog) By the way did I say, I love sleeping a lot…. I could honestly sleep the whole day!

img_3286

6. I’m actually a very sweet person. If you get to know me well, we can be good friends. I’m full of fun to be with.. We can stay up late nights eating pizza, drink wine and watch Netflix. We can travel the world with full of excitements and making memories together.

img_2700img_2656

7. I’m the eldest of the family. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. Sometimes I wonder how does it feel to have an older brother or sister, I’d be the happiest person.

8. My real name is Anna. When the time comes, I wanted my daughter’s name to be Kellydimple. And when that would be? In the right time my loves x

Wieliczka Salt Mine (Poland)

img_1206

Wieliczka located in southern Poland is one of the most famous and world class tourist attraction listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is 10 km away from the centre of  Krakow. We travelled by bus but you can use train too from the railway station of Krakow Glowny. I advise to book your ticket in advance online to prevent a long queu. The bus will drop you at Kopalnia Soli, just at the main road of the Salt Mine.

img_1209

img_1203

I fell in love of the place, away from the metropolitan area, the peaceful ambiance away from crowded people, traffic and pollution made me want to stay more. As we were heading to the Salt Mine (about 5 minutes walk) , I was trying to figure out how can there be a mine underneath my footstep. We bought our ticket inside the main building and joined the group with an English guide. Before you reach Level 1 (photo below) you will be going down on a round wooden staircase a 64 metres deep, take note that this is only the beginning of your main journey as you explore the 20 chambers that is 135 metres below from the Level 1. If you are claustrophobic you might be having a hard time going down the staircase as it’s very narrow. I was nervous as I thought it would be the same all throughout however the wonder below the ground was beyond my imagination.

img_1211

The Salt Mine compared no less magnificient and breathtaking than the Egyptian pyramids. No wonder it is one of the famous tourist attraction all over the world. Everything around me is made of salt, I was so close of trying to taste it as I touched and feel how marvellous and artistic it was built.

img_1297img_1269

Every chambers has its own story, an amazing and inspiring history that makes you appreciate that what we call hard work on our daily job is incomparable to what was like before. Those people who built this mine, I call them a legend, the life that they had to live in order to support their families sacrificing themselves to be a miner is heroic.

img_1248

Photos were taken on the main highlights of the chamber on the lower ground (135 metres below) and last stop you would be, there’s more to see inside, they have shops to buy for souvenirs, restaurants that serves lovely food at affordable price. Do you believe that inside the salt mine can cater an event or functions? Photo below is where they held. Very impressive!

img_1280

I highly recommend to eat inside the Salt Mine restaurant, food was delicious!

All made of salt.

img_1290

As I end my visit, I felt reborn from the old age. I learned a lot about life before and now. The life that we have right now is a pleasure to live in, we must embrace and take good care of it. Everything we want can be easily achieve but we tend to be unappreciative. Look at your surroundings how lucky and bless we are, we have a wonderful life ahead of us.

On my next blog, I will be taking you to Auswitz – Birkenau the largest Nazi death camp.

Krakow, Poland

Krakow is one of the most beautiful oldest cities in Poland located near the border of Czech Republic. The stunning aura of this second largest city of Poland are filled with wonder and amazement.

img_1187

Polish people are very kind and approachable. There’s no need to learn their language as majority of them speaks English. Their mode of transportation can be access by bus, taxis and tram lines. They have no underground metro system in comparison to other parts of Europe. I enjoyed mostly riding trams as we don’t have it in London. Crossing the road to catch the other line is so weird and confusing, in the end I encapsulated myself like a pro.

img_1168img_1134

Everything you buy in the city is a lot cheaper than the rest of Europe that I’ve been so far. Polish food are adorable and delightful. Again, it’s the only city I enjoyed very much, the varieties of vegetables, fish and meat was unbelievable and knowing the amount of money it cost could be paid twice as much of the price offered. I have no more words to explain how rich and savory their food and a nonstop uttered words to  my friend that “I could live here forever”.  Indeed, my stay  was a combine of a great holiday and healthy eating.

img_1417

Rynek  Glowny, is the Krakow’s main market square. It is one of the largest medieval squares in Europe surrounded with elegant houses. It is the centre where people gather for celebrations such as parades, Christmas crib competition and other important events the city has to celebrate. Numerous restaurants, shops, street foods can never be missed. Their nightlife has the best bars, pubs and clubs that attracts tourist. Drinks and cocktails are very cheap that’s why it is one of the ultimate main place for stag do and hen nights. If you want a weekend blast on your special events, this city is what you are looking for.

img_1124img_1108

img_1055

Krakow is very under rated when it comes to holiday destination. Nobody can state how wonderful this city is until you see it yourself.

As I continue my journey, I explored one of the world class attraction listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site the Wielickzka Salt Mine (Poland). Follow me as I travel Europe with an open mind, on my next blog I will be venturing inside Wielickzka and the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz – Birkenau.

Please follow and share this blog on your social media. Not all can afford to travel and this blog can inspire anyone who reads that our world is not just all on politics, hate and war. A simple travel can make someone hope that life is beautiful and blessed.

Updates!

img_2384I didn’t realised that having a blog is like a relationship. You need to have a sense of commitment if you want it running. I just took a little break and so I sincerely apologised if I had not been blogging but my thoughts have been always with you all who reads my page across the globe.

I just renewed my site today, I have been contemplating if it’s still worthwhile to keep it. Every time I checked my email, wordpress kept on sending me a notice that it’s about to expire and if I don’t renew I will lose it permanently. The feeling is like someone wants to take a property of yours and I am not ready to give it up. I have a lot to share and I’m very excited to be back!

2016 was a year of travel for me. I visited a lot of places across Europe which was all done by  random impulse. It’s good to take a break and feel revitalise from the repetitive lifestyle that we have. No matter how far or close the distance we take as long as we give time ourselves to breathe, it gives us a feeling of relief that there’s more to life than what’s on our plate right now.

2017 plans has already been organised, bit scary but let’s see how it goes. I have two trips coming this February and March. If you don’t follow me yet on Instagram, please do @kellydimp I use hashtag travellynea for all my travels and I consistently post my fashion and lifestyle.

So I have 2 lined blog post to come let me know which one should I post first. Updated Perfume Collection or another Travel blog? Let me know on the comment below and I look forward to be writing again.

5 Amazing Cities

Some people say “travelling is good for the body and soul”, I could not fathom out this slogan, although I was surrounded by friends who loves to travel and see the world. I am embarrassed to say but I thought people who jumped out of the country and hop in on one place to another are “sad”… I thought they are running away for something in their life that they don’t know how to handle, therefore their way of dealing is escaping from where they are… And this mental notion of mine are totally DELUSIONAL! as I was completely wrong.

My widely personal perspective about travelling came into existence when I started to travel and see the world. Whenever I found myself into a foreign land, I feel like I am attaching myself into myself. Leaving behind all those duties and responsibilities is such a heavenly feeling, like a little girl left alone inside the candy store.

Here are my 5 Amazing Recommended Cities which for sure you have had seen already or about to explore in your life.

  1. London, UK– I am not being biased but I highly recommend this beautiful city where I live in, to be your top list. Here are the following notes you might want to consider before landing here..bring varieties of clothes as british weather will welcome you anytime, try the local fish and chips to ease your curiosity, bring extra cash or credit cards..the more you stay the more it gets expensive…, get the hop on hop off tour bus if it’s your first time (travel infos are helpful to know the histories of each places), take advantage of the historical museums (most are free to get in) make selfies on the House of Parliament, London Eye and Tower Bridge and oopppsss don’t forget to visit the Queens Kingdom at the Buckingham Palace, wanna meet the locals? certainly go to pubs and coffee shops that’s where they hide out, for shopping visit Harrods if you want to splurge and for more affordable ones walk around along the Oxford Street where lots of shops awaiting for you. The rest I will leave it all up for you to explore and if you bump at me by chance don’t forget to say hi, I am friendly and approachable.

2. Paris, France – This is my 2nd best city, very self explanatory as everybody loves Paris. There’s always two things I want to do in this sweet romantic city. First is to eat macaroons in the Laduree and take a nonstop selfie on the Eiffel Tower. Walk as much as you want, because every corner has always something to say. If you are with your love ones, it’s your moment to have a sweet heart to heart talk expressing your feelings not everyone have the opportunity to be on that certain spot creating a memorable memories of your love life. Eat lots of ice-cream and crepe under the Eiffel tower and try to speak French, not all locals speak your language. If you want to see more in depth check my Paris trip for more details.

3. Rome, Italy – If you are a history lover or if you want to take yourself back in the old times, I must say this is a place for you. What I love about this city, is how they took care and preserved their monuments and museums such as the Vatican and the Colosseum for us to see in real life that it actually exist. Exploring inside the Colosseum is my best highlight knowing that it was used by gladiatorial battle in the early medieval era. This city has a lot to offer on your travel story. Take a lot of photos, capturing their breath taking city is a wonderful privileged.

4. Barcelona, Spain – I could described this city as a big playground. Each tourist spot such as Park Guell and Sagrada Familia are fabulously built to fascinate our eyes and captivate our heart how the great architects done a marvellous job for our advantage. There’s more to see in this beautiful city, by metro you can easily take a dip to their Barceloneta beach, make sure to eat lots of Paella and drink their tasty Sangria.

image

5. Madrid, Spain – My expectation to this city was beyond absolute treasure. While I was on the train heading to Madrid from Barcelona, I didn’t expect much. As I began my journey, it slowly sunk in me how astounding and breathtaking every corner I stepped to. Mercado y San Miguel is my favourite place as I had to try a varieties of local foods, Plaza Mayor is beautiful make sure you take a solo photo, Prado National Museum for art lovers and they have great shopping centre. By the way, did I say that Madrilenian at my glance are sophisticated and ambitious.

Travel while you are young, you might be surprised how great your life will turned into. Be a explorer and creator of your own memories.

Imagine a baby inside the mothers womb, for 9 months the baby is slowly and gradually exploring his surroundings until he is ready to come out. This means that we were born as a explorer, there’s a tiny soft spot in ourselves that is waiting to be discover.

Sometimes we just need to let go of ourselves, pack and travel where our hearts headed us to. We tend to overthink and analyse life too much where in fact life has great wonderful things to offer us.
