Here are the pictures from my day 2 & 3 around Romania 🙂
After spending a night in beautiful Sighisoara, we were back on the road. First stop was at beautiful Alba Iulia Citadel following the journey of the seven gates. Loved the obelisk of Horea, Closca and Crisan. Further on the road, we had a quick stop at Deva Citadel however the skyline from the top of the hill was not that great as it was intensively raining. Finally, we arrived in Hunedoara, our stop for the night. Third day morning after breakfast we stopped at Corvin Castle. This was one of my favorite places during the trip. Build in a Gothic – Renaissance style, this is one of the largest castles of Romania and Europe. After walking the cold rooms and chambers of Corvin Castel, we continued our journey which the destination Timisoara. Sun was already up and we got to Timisoara during the evening time. Here we spent the night just a walk from the charming Opera Square.
Hope you enjoy the pictures and there is more to come soon!
2 weeks ago I went on a short trip around my beautiful country, Romania. It was a 5 days trip and I can honestly say that was one of the most green, cultural, relaxing and happiest gateways I had so far this year. Exploring my own country is something I always miss since I become an expat but it is definitely on my list every time I go back home. So here it is, day 1 itinerary of my trip.
From Pitesti, Arges county (my hometown) we went on the direction of Sighisoara but first stopped at Fundata to enjoy the beautiful landscape composed of Piatra Craiului Mountains and Bucegi Mountains. Breathtaking view. Second stop was Cetatea Rasnov (Rasnov Citadel). This citadel was build back in 1200 as a defence from outside invasions. As it was a very hot day we decided not to walk up to the citadel and took the touristic bus instead. Pretty lazy, i know! Third stop was Brasov where i had a nice lunch and a walk around Piata Sfatului. Must admit that I am fascinated every time I see the gothic style Black Church of Brasov. Further, on the way to Sighisoara the rain started but luckily it stopped once we arrived to the guesthouse of the night. Sighisoara was love at first sight and I can’t wait to be back!
I have taken too many pictures to collect them all in one post so today I will let you enjoy a bit of Transylvania : Rasnov Citadel, Brasov city and Medieval Sighisoara. More posts will follow about the remaining days of my trip so stay tuned if you are curious to see a green and full of history Romania.
Such a long time! But hey! Here are some of my favs photos from my short trip to Amsterdam 🙂 Had an amaaaazing time walking around this beautiful city in both 10 and 30 degrees. Didn’t expect such a cold weather for June but it compensated with a sunny end. Hope to be back soon as i got in love with you Amsterdam.
This December i have accomplished a dream, to travel to Hong Kong. The experience? Overwhelming. Everything in HK moves differently from other parts of the world. At least the ones i have seen so far. The city itself is in a continuous movement; the people, the traffic, construction, day life and night life. That noise of the city will get stuck in your head for the entire trip. No chance to escape. I would like to call it, a charming chaos. The markets make HK a truly unique place. Definitely need to try the local restaurants. They are not the most welcoming in appearance and service, but the food is amazing. I have encountered the language barrier, however I felt like home along the Hollywood road. Besides the expats enjoying themselves around in the multitude of pubs and restaurants, it is the best spot to socialize. Galleries, boutique shops and antique shops are one of the best ways to spend your afternoon or evening. My trip ended up attending my friend’s wedding in Macau. It certainly was one of the most exciting weddings i have attended so far. The difference between Hong Kong and Macau? Well, while HK is full with people outdoors, Macau keeps them indoors in their casinos 🙂 If you haven’t reach HK by now, i totally recommend you do so and embrace it as much as you can. Also, i hope you can make an idea out of the photos below. Happy 2015! 🙂
This weekend i visited the Art Dubai galleries at Madinat Jumeirah. I was impressed with the “Extremes Maquettes” by Bodys Isek Kingelez which is now part of Cartier Foundation pour l’art contemporain.
Back in 1995, the artist used recycled material to build this urban and colorful city of Congo. His works carries a social message, compensating for what reality and society have failed to give the city.
Enjoy the plastic city!
Artsy Dubai! A week full of art, events, music, great vibe, beautiful people and of course, artists. This is the best time to go out and explore every corner of Dubai Art week.
Yesterday was the opening of the galleries in DIFC at the Gate Village. Cool event! Nice crowd.
More events to come so hurry and explore the expositions at Madinat Jumeirah, Artdays at Emaar Boulevard and not to forget about the Sikka event at Bastakiya.
