Today we will start our trip to Kosovo. By car, with two under 5 years olds, to a country, which still awakens scary pictures in some of us. Ofcourse, if there would be any reason to be scared, i wouldn't bring my treasures there. But. I would be lying if i said it was just one country among others. It's not. It's a special place. A very special place. It's like a man who i'm having a love hate relationship with. Some of the traditions are so annoying i could rip all my finnish, blonde locks off of my head, and some of them make me melt and wish i could spread them all over Europe. But one thing is sure, nothing is like in my home country. Like this outfit, I believe it would be almost a crime to combine graceful silver with shamelessly destroyed denim there. It's like everything I consider reasonable, everything I have been taught, everything I think is normal, everything i have get used to, I can and i SHOULD forget the moment i step there. Is it ok? Perhaps not, but it was my decision to share my life with this country. For that i will, again, do my very best to handle our differences. Cause who can say what is right and what is wrong when it comes to traditions and way of living? All i wish is for the locals to also remember that i come from thousands of kilometers away, from a culture that resembles theirs as much as mustard resembles ketchup. They are different but i love them both. For sure, many of us don't, and there's nothing wrong with that either. However, I'm so grateful that I was given these two worlds. So the next four weeks I will be far away from my normal, yet excited, happy and slightly scared, as I go back to my soul shivering love affair with Kosovo.
