🇬🇧Working a 9-5 job drugged by the daily, weekly and yearly routines certainly plays tricks on your mind and its perception of time. Time is a relative phenomenon⏳In "the spaceship of routines" time just won't pass; the weekend is far away on mondays, the next vacation is beyond the horizon. And there's this planet we visit every now and then where time just flies by compared to our spaceship. It is on this planet that we realize how the last few years just blew by. It is on this planet that we kinda freak out and start seeking answers to our existence. Where's that big impact we were going to make? Is it possible that we're not as invincible as we thought we'd be back in time? I think my growing interest in people's history stems from the reality checks I have on this planet.
How did people live in the post Soviet era or during the Cold War? How did a generation cope with frigging 2 world wars? How was daily life in a medieval town?🤔 I'm fascinated by such questions. I wish I could tell you how I had an epiphany and now my future is crystal clear ahead of me. It's still a process and a process that I enjoy.
The town of Obidos was on that planet where you'd have a reality check and it's well preserved medieval vibe was well worthy of hopping off my spaceship. My all time favorite in medieval towns is still Tallinn though😊
