For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel like home (pics only)

Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected. Roman Payne

  1. I like the street scenes with crowds and the rough texture of the buildings. Also, it is nice to see some place with balmy weather while we in Michigan “bask” in minus 17 C. temps. The art work makes a nice backdrop for you. 🙂

    1. I’m reading “The subtle art of not giving a fk” now, on page 34…but not sure it’s something “useful” or “interesting” to read. Idk, maybe if I’d be 20-25yo. Oh I’ll give it a try tho…(I think u told me u read the book and it was awesome)

      1. Yeah it is kinda self help book. So maybe age can matter. But I loved the book. I just needed that.
        Situation of reader also matters.
        Self help books are great when you really need them. Or they can be boring… 😃
        Let me know what you think?

      2. I just finished it..it’s OK book, 2,5 or 3 from 5 for me. But I’d def enjoyed it at the age of 25-28 much much more. Or maybe even 6-7 years ago. Not now tho. Probably bcz I don’t need “that kinda help” anymore. I’d advice to read it for ppl from 16 to 30 tho. Some chapters are more fun, some – only BS (sorry haha). I’ll write a review later maybe

      3. Yup that’s true.
        I think you’ll write good book now. 😃
        Yeah target readers are millenials. It must okay for you.
        Yeah do write the review, eager to read it. 😁
        Till then enjoy vacation. ✌

      4. It’s a nice book with a positive vibe tho. A bit childish in some chapters but charming too.
        Btw, I’m not interested to write a “good book” 🙂 aka non-fiction book. I’m going to write a fiction, but I’m reading non fiction most of the time bcz it’s VERY helpful if ud like to write a fiction story (just my opinion).
        I wrote non fiction book before. In Russian tho. I’ve got a good deal, but I’ve dropped it. Was stupid lol I know 😂
        Review will be short, only on goodreads I think. Or maybe here. Not sure.
        Glad u liked the book. Give out ur “fucks” properly now 🙂
        The use of Bukowski was neat 😂✌️

      5. Ray NotBradbury is my name there, but I’ve just started to use it in December 2017 ( but created in 2013 🙃)
        Don’t have a proper booklist – I read what comes my way 😂😬

      6. No, not absurd. Why? I’m usually checking what other peeps r reading too or some reviews. It’s difficult with choosing a next book. I been in the store yesterday and I spend there about 1,5 hour but couldn’t find anything (fiction) to read…everything is so “similar” with a line “nobody is safe” 😂 so I bought non-fiction about science lol

      7. I prefer to read synopsis only tho…then when I’m done or sometimes at the end of the book can check couple reviews: usually 1-2 positive and 1-2 negative 🙂
        Problem is that the writing crime-world stuck in “nobody safe”-idea. All same. People disappearing, husbands are freaks…eh

      8. True that. Very personal. The thing is I’m usually like the books nobody likes haha and I dislike the ones everybody likes 😂 And u doing it right. First the book – then reviews 🙂

      9. I m sure u do..
        Tell me something Ray… how do u choose a book .? Like in my case I go for ratings and synopsis… but I m sure u must have some diff way

        Liked by 1 person

      10. It depends. But I don’t know about ratings much. I never check ratings before buying. Usually I’m checking “news” on the book-selves of the local bookstore (crime & non fiction always r first haha). I look at the name of the book, then I read synopsis. Then I open a book. If I don’t like fonts – I’m closing the book and in 95% of cases I won’t buy it. But sometimes I can take a time 5-10 min and check/read..if I like the style – maybe I’ll buy it (style or language is important for me). Plot is not so important in the beginning but of coz I’m interested 1. who r the heroes, 2. what is their story/problem and 3. the time( for ex: if I see “it was year 1842 blah blah” – I’m going to put it back). If I see tooooo difficult names (long ones) – not interested as well. Now more often (simply bcz it’s really difficult to find anything cool or fun or lyrical but scary or different etc) in 1 hour lol I’m taking pics of those books I like (at the store) and then at home I’m going to iTunes & take their “samples” to my IBooks. I read those 30-60 pages, they usually allows u to read & if I think it’s worth buying- I’m buying a real book thru swedish book-web-sites (in 99% is in English). Then I’m reading when the book arrives (right in the post box).
        The thing is “synopsis” is almost similar everywhere nowadays. U have to go for a style of the writing u like or for the story.

      11. whooa…that was a very detailed reply…So indeed this comment requires a HUGE THANKS from my side 🙂

        Well i can relate to most of the stuffs which you said. Indeed today the synopsis are similar for a particular genre and so it is very difficult to conclude anything about the book. Moreover I agree that style of writing is very important. My main priority is how the author is successful to connect with me…with his/her thoughts…if i can feel the words I read the whole book else I let it go…
        Some days the title of book or the cover page image only draws my attention and I just go for it. I have always a soft corner for good titles…

        Regarding buying books, i guess kindle has helped me a lot to quench my momentarily spur of reading strokes 😛
        Though I keep a small library of mine…it always feels great to read in hardcovers.

      12. About the titles. True..it’s important. Cover & title. Guilty as well 😂😂 but each time more difficult to fool me, cuz similarity is eating up the real magic. I’ve just started to use kindle lol I’ll check more in January:))

      13. yep January is not so far away.. 🙂
        The best part of having a kindle is that it makes u feel that u r really into reading coz u cant do nything other than reading on that…haha

        Well I have issue with pages nos…Even though i know a novel should be read without seeing how thick it is… i still get scared of reading tomes … the weird thing is that i feel why to read one thick book when one can read three or more books in that time…lol

        PS : I did read Harry Potter though and loved it

      14. A novel should be 300-600 pages (a book) – it’s totally fine. To enjoy it u have to know if u can relate, if u r interested in the idea or the style of writing. Then it flows. Otherwise – it sucks. Some ppl r reading slowly and remember more afterwords, while the other (like me 😂) just eating up each book quickly and don’t remember much after a year or so🤨😱. But all depends on the book. Some books I’m reading really really slowly bcz I’m enjoying…
        I did read Harry P as well. Great story :)✌️
