Cultural Sunday

We’ve all felt it. The Sunday lazy. The fall-on-the-couch-and-binge-bad-tv feeling. 2019 already feels like its been 8 years long and we have barely cracked the halfway mark of the second month. The last few months have hard. all kinds of hard. Including the old cliche “life is short” kind of hard. This isn’t People of […]

Amsterdam in a hurry.

It was Friday afternoon. I saw a few ducks in the canal, floating around on the water and I walked down to the bank of the canal and sat down.  I breathed in deeply and as I was taking in that breath the past 3 days of work rushed through my head and I felt […]

I used to think it was a popularity contest.

For many years, I sniggered at those bloggers asking for votes to win a competition. Especially the ones where you enter yourself and ask members of the public to vote.  I was surrounded by people who didn’t like competitions, who campaigned against them. The longest time I thought they had a point. Asking for votes […]

Unpopular opinions and other unnecessary things.

I am close to 30 and I figured it’s time I stop shying away from things. I am going into a new era and I am going to own it. However long it may last. Post after post of ’50 facts about me” have crossed my screen and each one more boring than the next. […]

Trier, the place I didnt know I needed to see.

Theres a golden hour in autumn in Europe. The sun hits everything around you and for a brief few moments your day lights up in gold. Everything shimmers and your shit mood melts away.  I don’t like much of Germany. I sound awful saying it. But Germans are intense. Maybe I’ll like it more if […]

Dubai International Airport. Unremarkable notes Much like a nightclub in your 20’s, the airport only seems to get busy after midnight. The building transforms from a vacant mall where you wonder how the stores make rent to a buzzing market of people buying overpriced perfumes, Hermes scarves, and gold watches. I browsed duty free and […]

Things Change

Change is always weird. Everything about change is uncomfortable, even changing your clothes sucks. Who actually wakes up and looks forward to getting dressed. I don’t.  But change is inevitable. Seasons, fashion, people, even underwear. It’s natural. Why do we fear something so…natural? Greenlydia hasn’t had much change over the 8 years of being active. […]

Top Travel Apps

I have never been the kind of person who plans ahead much. I don’t bother to check in online, I don’t even look up my flight. I kind of just…so up.
