Life in Words
Interesting stories and articles
We all are travelers in modern world, almost every person makes a regular journey to and from some place. The only one difference is the distance. Sometimes you spend several minutes in a car, bus or tram, sometimes it takes several hours in airplane. People usually spend at least an hour going to work each day. It is the bane of adult lives. And we are unable to do something efficient in most cases during this time. Well known that everyone is busy and if you are not, what are you doing in your whole life? You cannot rest, just work.. work.. work.

What is Cofony?
Cofony is a travel and a lifestyle blog for those who like to explore everything unknown, explore new destinations and find a bit of motivation. The blog is new and more changes to come…
Why Cofony? What does it mean?
Cofony comes from – cup of harmony – because while I was giving up smoking I pleased myself with a coffee in a bunch of nice places. Since then the goal was achieved but I became addicted to delicious drinks and friendly atmosphere.
Who am I?
Recently I was a common workie and my 9 to 5 was busy time. Then I decided to quit and change my career path. So I am working on it :) And yes, I do afraid of standing still instead of moving slowly.
How did I create a blog?
I started in May 2017, but I had been thinking about it for a long time – it takes so much time to think what it should be and how to shape it from the scratch. At first, I thought that I can write it by myself but it was not easy and I did not have special skills and enough time, so I started searching other ways and found Weebly – I think it is the easiest way to start blogging, as per my experience. Then I became bewildered. I did not know how it should look like. But I truly believe that when you make a decision and put an effort in it, you are moving forward no matter what. You cannot be perfect, you have to make mistakes and correct them. Because only then you can see your progress and learn from it. Currently I am still making mistakes and working on articles and categories. Step by step I like it more and more each day. From my early childhood, I had a dream to become a writer one day and now I am working on it and it feels great!
Why blog in English, but not in Ukrainian?
Firstly, because I want to improve myself. My English is not perfect but I need it on daily basis. By writing I discover new words, I correct mistakes and it is additional practice each day. And you know, it really works! Since I started blogging, it is much easier for me to write, think and speak in English. And secondly, why not?
What are my future articles about?
I am working on several categories like Book Adventure, Travel Guru, Mood, Curiosity and Expat Life. You will hear about it every Thursday. There are some other topics in my mind but I reveal these ideas moving forward. Also, I am going to visit Iceland again as soon as I will have some spare time and money. I want to rent a huge jeep and ride all F-roads there.
What are my future destinations?
I would like to visit Italy and Switzerland to find inspiring destinations surrounded by mountains. Moreover, I want to share some travel tips to make travel experience more amiable.

Our trip to Iceland left us speechless and turned me into a storyteller because of a staggering number of fascinating places. We all travel to seek something new but be careful because Iceland will captivate you. For example we have already addicted to this country right after our first day.
One of the best known waterfall in Iceland is Seljalandsfoss. Water falls from 60 meters and takes a root from glacier Eyjafjallajökull – the erupted volcano not so long ago. It is one of that fascinating waterfalls which you can walk behind and get wet and it’s amazing and must be done by all means.

We traveled there in August. At that time everything is green and average temperatures are one of the highest, but still it is the end of the season. And as always, the weather has its own mood.
Our plane landed almost at midnight so we took our car from a rental company and drove to the nearest camping in town called Gardur. Check it on Google maps here.
First day in Iceland we started with great view. The Ocean. The lighthouses.
In the old lighthouse you can find a café, where every visitor can drink coffee. In Iceland coffee is expensive. It costs near 300-500 icelandic krona or $3-5 dollars.
