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! 🙂
Happy 8th of March to all mothers and women all over the world!
My weekend couldn’t go more relaxing and enjoyable than it was. Started on Thursday with a wine&cheese night at the H Hotel with one of my good friends. (I must mention that I am a big fan of red wine and french cheese therefore my night was just delicious) As I didn’t wake up with a hangover on Friday, I’ve put on my shades, took my camera and decided to explore Emaar Boulevard. I’ve passed by numerous times, however i never took the time to walk along the boulevard. It was very hot. Around 27 degrees. Few people around, but those that were having walks looked happy and relaxed. Many skaters and bikers. Smell of shisha from the restaurants around. Some tourists taking pictures. A nice and quite neighborhood. Old district architecture with unexplored gardens and fountains. Again that shisha smell. I’ve stooped to a cafe and had a refreshing raspberry smoothie. Found some street art around the boulevard. Went back home and chitchat with friends. As Saturday has arrived, I’ve hit to the pool and enjoyed my very first day of the year in the sun. Didn’t get much of a tan. Cooked a healthy lunch. Ended up my day at the ladies saloon. Yeah, its sounds very girlish, but hey! 8th of March is only once a year! 🙂
Have a great day ladies!
Hello Barcelona lovers!
This post is a tribute to my wonderful 2 years spent in this magical city, Barcelona… Recently i realized that i didn’t dedicate any post to the city i will always be in love with… Barcelona was love at the very first sight, and will always be my second home… So here it is, Barcelona post in black and white.
P.S. Te echo de menos!!!!
Yesterday i went for an afternoon walk to Al Bastakiya, the oldest area in Dubai. I always find this district relaxing and in my opinion this is the only place rich in history in Dubai…Although the buildings have been refurbished in the ’90s, at least you can have an idea of Dubai old days… This heritage area is full with artistic shops&cafes and some other touristic stuff, such as the Coins Museum… Besides, this area is never crowded which is a great opportunity to explore its narrow alleys… Once you are out from Bastakiya, a walk by the creek at sunset is a perfect way to end up your day… 🙂
