we gave up everything we had to travel the world.

Bongu, (currently in Gozo, Malta)
and welcome in our tiny story

We are a family of four - Nadja, Leo, Lejla & Erik. In the year 2015, we sold all our stuff and moved to a tiny Mediterranean island. We spent a year there and went back to Slovenia after. Having that experience, we realized we couldn't wait anymore for the right time to travel. We want to do it NOW. We want to move our asses out of our comfort zones and do our best.

After one year spent back in our home country, we made a decision. We canceled our apartment, left everything behind and started our low budget journey around the globe with final destination New Zealand in mind.

Here is the place where we will share our tiny stories about life, travel, relationship, kids, problems, business, freelancing and more what will occur during our journey.

2 min read Back to Gozo Diary & Writing

We decided that we’ll go back to Gozo. We’ll stay there until we recharge ourselves and our valets. In a way, it is liberating that we finally determined where we’ll go next. But on the other hand, I feel disappointed. It is like breaking up with a guy. After some hard and unsatisfied period of your time together, you decide to break up with him, and that makes you feel liberated. But at the same time, you feel down, because you failed to build something lasting, your vision of the future with him no longer exists. Your eyes are glowing with excitement for the new possibilities, but some bitterness stays on your tongue.

In January we went to visit our family in Slovenia. We didn’t see any positive consequences of our visit. We were exhausted, and it was hard to get back into our daily routine. The most significant problem occurred when it was time to get back to school. Lejla skipped two weeks of school, and she had a lot of catching up to do - tons of homework. But the most heartbreaking issue we had with Erik. He just didn’t want to go back to school.

We have arrived on Gozo at the beginning of November. Personally, I fell into a bit of depressive state. Maybe depression isn’t the right description. It was more like melancholy. I wasn’t sad; I was without energy. I wished to snuggle between warm covers and not move out of it.
