About a Girl

Kerala, India. 2022.

I was named after a Bob Dylan song, which is something I will always be proud of. Born in Banja Luka in former Yugoslavia, raised in the Mediterranean by the sea, followed by a decade-long stint in Hong Kong. After South East Asia, I lived in Prague for over five years before moving to Dubai where I am now (re)discovering myself and the city which changes every day.

I began writing a journal as an 8-year-old, thanks to Jacqueline Wilson’s Tracy Beaker, and haven’t stopped since. I created my first website in 2001 and that stayed, too. But it’s all different today; the blogging I mean. Cold and businesslike. I continue to write because I want to preserve what once was, and what one day can be. Reading, on the other hand, simply feels like breathing to me. And since I’ve always travelled, the idea behind this corner of the internet wrote itself.

I like daylight, wooden floorboards, books, and the smell of freshly made coffee. Especially first thing in the morning. I am one for honest conversations and comfortable silences. I am one for impromptu road trips, long train rides, and 3 am conversations at the airport.
