I’m Tammy Broccas, a 30 something year old blogger and freelance writer. I love writing down my ideas and sharing them with those who are willing to spend a few moments reading.
I consider myself a regular person that enjoys the small joys life has to offer, like taking small walks and enjoying the singing of the birds, watching the sun rise and fall, enjoying good food with my friends, and taking any opportunity that comes my way to see and explore the world.
I also see myself as a practical person. For me, time is short and precious, so I do my best not to waste it. Of course, we all need to relax, rest, and unwind now and then, and I do love to watch a good movie from time to time, but I do my best to make good use of my time.
I know that some don’t see writing as a valuable way of spending their time, but for me, it is a way to stay connected with the world.
But, enough about work and let me tell you more about the things I like to do when I am not working.
The world we live in fascinates me and I believe that there are so many amazing places to visit, things to see, and cultures to experience, including local cuisines. I believe that memories are the most important treasure you can gather in a lifetime and traveling is one of the best ways to accumulate memories.
So, I do my best to travel as often as possible and add new memories to my lifeline. I love visiting old places that can tell stories, places that have a history behind them. There’s a certain energy in these old corners of the world, it’s like you can almost feel and see how life took place there, and it is easier to imagine what stories are teaching us.
One of my habits, when visiting a new place, is to try the foods that are specific to that area. Whether it’s about going to the local market in search for fruits I never tried before or having dinner at a restaurant, I will always want to try something new, something different, something that will represent the area in the best way possible.
I also love spending time in the outdoors, seeing and witnessing nature’s own creations. It is comfortable to live in a city, but I also find it stressful and tiring.
So, eloping somewhere far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, protected only by the thick forest and, if possible, mountainous peaks is one of my favorite ways to recharge my batteries and replenish my reserves of positive energy.
Nature is a great place to reconnect with yourself, be grateful for what you have, and realize that life is much more than just having the latest smartphone or driving an expensive car.
Cooking is, occasionally, one of the activities I enjoy doing in my spare time. I like cooking for my friends and family, the biggest reward, in this case, is to see them enjoying my food. I don’t know why but this gives me a great sense of satisfaction, so I always do my best to cook something delicious when I’m having guests over.
