Love Hurts: Welcome to Croatia’s Museum of Broken Relationships

One day you’re running your fingers through your beau’s hair and borrowing his T-shirts, and the next he’s dumping you via 2am text message. Harsh. But before you set that no-good-piece-of- $%*&’s belongings on fire and post a photo of the charred remains on Facebook (you totally were going to do that, weren’t you?), take a breather. Because revenge in the name of art feels much better than smoke inhalation.

Ilona and Derek Take The World - Part 6

After a few days in Oahu we took flight to the Big Island. It only takes about an hour so the plane flies at a lower altitude. As a result, we were able to see Maui and the volcano Haleakala from a bird’s eye view. Make sure that your seat is on the left hand side of the plane to get this amazing view.

Ilona and Derek Take the World Part 5 – Aloha, Oahu!

The flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu is about a five and half hour flight. Chatting with the flight attendant I told her I had flown all the way from Poland, relating to extended time spend in the air and she began to bring us free drinks. With the alcoholic beverages flowing this relaxing flight soon turned into a party. After great conversation and gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean time flew by and we had arrived. Hawaii has 5 major islands, Hawaii (usually called The Big Island), Maui, Molokai, Oahu and Kauai. Of course the Hawaii archipelago has more than a hundred islands, but who has time to visit all of them, let alone many are only a handful of feet in length! We only had two weeks to explore the islands, so we decided to spend the first few days on Oahu and the rest on The Big Island.

Ilona And Derek Take The World Part 4 - How To Get To LA During The Winter Storms

Three months later it was time for another date. Unfortunately, when two people live on different continents, they cannot see each other as often as they’d like. It was Christmas, so Derek and his family were spending the holidays in Los Angeles. I had never been to LA before, and Derek bribed me with a ticket from LA to Hawaii. How could I resist that?

Ilona and Derek Take The World - Part 2

While Stuttgart, Germany might not be the first town that comes to mind as a top tourist destination in Central Europe, this home to the Porsche Museum is where our story begins. Well, it really begins in Krakow, Poland where our protagonist, Ilona was born and raised alongside a very close childhood friend and her brother, Derek. Around 1994, Derek moved to the United States and in 2000, Ilona made a trip to the US to visit her friend and as luck has it, Derek. There, in New York City, Derek and Ilona hit it off well enough to classify this visit as a summer romance. In 2002 the same summer romance occurred when Ilona and Derek found themselves spending the summer together. After years of this, we finally find ourselves in 2010 in Stuttgart where our love birds decide to have their first official date. Germany was the perfect place to meet because Ilona’s work was there at the time, and Derek is always up for a visit to one of his favorite countries.
