Little by little public speaking’s become comfortable, enjoyable and less and less stressful. I fuss around preparing a good slide deck or rehearsing, or writing and rewriting scripts so they sound natural but then all it takes is a super light room that deprives people from seeing your slides and a weird setup that won’t play audio or display your speaker notes and all of a sudden it’s back to basics. Shake it off, make yourself comfortable, look people in the eyes and just have a conversation. Thanks to Rarst for this great shot from #WCBGD. And to @lanche86 & Nemanja for the invitation to speak. I had fun. #Belgrade #Serbia #nomadstories #technology #WordPress #publicspeaking #WordCamp

Yana The Social Disaster performing out if character and being totally social with 20 tiny humans during the #WCBGD WordPress workshop for kids. She was the 21st kid who created her site live for the others to follow ;) Also starring my #WCEU love – Mozart Wapuu, who I never realized ended up in the GoDaddy offices in Belgrade! And yes, that is a boulder wall at the background. #Serbia #Belgrade #WordPress #kids #Wapuu #huskies #technology #nomadstories #yanathesocialdisaster

Weekendless weeks mean stolen Saturday moments are a must to keep sanity in check. I’m having a grand awesome time around activities for #WCBGD this weekend – speaking and running a kids workshop in two consecutive days, but I let my personal Social Disaster get the better of me yesterday and we ran towards the hills of the gorgeous Belgrade Fortress park for an hour of warmth before the sun set. Spring is love. #Serbia #Belgrade #yanathesocialdisaster #nomadstories #spring #greengrass #chucks #vsco #vscocam #picoftheday

Spending the week working from a farm house in rural England with some amazing humans discussing the future of @humanmadeltd events. WiFi’s horrible which means stressing out around meetings but being insanely focused at all other times. All in all – a positive thing. There are sheep and lambs everywhere BUT this shot. I feel like putting on a big dress and hopping around this fairytale land for a few hours with a basket of something in hand. Red riding hood style, you know… Not getting eaten would be a bonus. #England #Matlock #picoftheday #vscocam #vsco #rural #farmhouse #spring #nomadstories

Saturday morning a week ago. I’m back home for about 10 days and stealing a weekend away with the closest of close friends I possess. On our way to the Green Cauldron high up in the mountains we stop at the last grocery store slash pub in the village, right next to the school for mountain guides. I’m after a particular brand of Bulgarian chocolate waffles called Golden Stanka, after one of Bulgaria’s Olympic champion female wrestlers. I’ve only ever seen them in this place but today I’m out of luck. No Golden Stanka waffles and it looks like they don’t produce them anymore. Such a terrible loss. The wafflelessness will be the one dark cloud over our soon to be bliss in the power free reception free wilderness. #Bulgaria #Troyan #CherniOsam #Countrylife #vscocam #vsco #bycicle #nomadstories #village #picoftheday #throwback #wafflestory
