• Oh, Lisbon!

    - 11 December 2016 -

    So, a couple of quick words about our Lisbon trip back in July. We loved it there! It’s a biiiiig city, yet it has such a provincial vibe (in a very good way!). We were not impressed with the food […]

  • The loveliest apartment

    - 9 October 2016 -

    Back in July, when we visited Lisbon, we had the opportunity to stay in a very lovely apartment. Actually, it was amazing, not just lovely. It was in the old part of the city, in an old building which was […]

  • A quick stroll

    - 3 September 2016 -

    (14.05.2016 – Baiului Mountains) Before Claudia moved to Canada (we miiiiissss yooouuu!!!) we went on an one-day trek in the Baiului Mountains. I knew from Adi that the mountains are not high at all and that you have a spectacular view […]

  • I’m a hopeless wanderer*

    - 25 April 2016 -

    (31.12.2015, Șaua Capra) Last year we decided not to spend New Year’s Eve in Baia Mare, but to go somewhere with our friends. Claudia’s parents were extremely nice and let us have their lovely house near Sibiu. So we went […]

  • An afternoon with mum

    - 10 January 2016 -

    This Christmas I spent just one week at home. It was definitely not enough for everything I wanted to do. Yes, I saw my family and friends, yes, I went to the climbing gym there, yes, I went from second-hand […]

  • The cats of Veliko Tarnovo

    - 23 April 2015 -

    (06-07.10.2014) When mum visited us in October we decided to take a small trip to Veliko Tarnovo. Like I’ve said here before, I like that city a lot and I’m planning on going there as often as I can. Mum […]

  • Looking back

    - 6 March 2015 -

    (Valea Horoabelor, 20.09.2014) There are still a couple of stories from last year left untold. At one point I’ve decided I want to document all my outings and I should stick to that resolution, so here goes nothing. In September […]

  • And I was someone else, I was something good*

    - 19 September 2014 -

    (25-27.07.2014 Cabana Negoiu, Custura Sărății) Last year we reached Moldoveanu so this year we planned to reach Negoiu. Well, it’s easier said than done when the weather is totally against you. Really, this year we had the crappiest weather ever! […]

  • All right, let’s go back*

    - 31 May 2014 -

    I know, I know, this happened at the end of March and we’re practically in June now, so this means that I’m either very lazy or not in the mood to blog, but guess what, none of that is true. […]

  • You don’t know what it’s been like meeting someone like you*

    - 13 August 2013 -

    (Bucegi, 13-14.07.2013) It seems that trekking has become one of my things. I love the weight of the backpack, the sweets we nibble on the way, I hate to go up hill, but I love to go down hill, I’m […]

  • Glittery weekend

    - 2 July 2013 -

    (14.06.2013, Târgoviște) Time spent with friends is never wasted – I have no idea who said that, but, boy, is (s)he right! Although Andreea stayed almost two months at my place, we never actually got proper time for a girlie […]

  • Has it been a day or a week?*

    - 7 March 2013 -

    Living in two separate worlds is not easy. But while packing and unpacking my suitcase once again I’ve realised that I should stop complaining and accept the fact that I can’t and don’t want to become estranged from my parents, […]

  • I sense a leak inside my phone now from all the lies that I have told*

    - 9 February 2013 -

    My life right now is perfectly monotonous in the nicest way possible. For the first time I relish the routine. I go to work and sometimes I get to read really interesting books, other times they bore me to death. […]

  • Youth knows no pain*

    - 23 January 2013 -

    This year I’ll be flashy and trashy, whatever that means. I’ll wear dresses and skirts 90% of the time. I’ll read less and climb more. No regrets. No could haves and no should haves. Less beer, more meat. Less money, […]

  • On second thoughts, I’d rather hang around and be there with my best friend, if she wants me*

    - 5 January 2013 -

    While I was in Baia Mare I met M., whom I haven’t seen for two years. I also met A., whom I haven’t seen for three years. Our get-togethers were as wonderful as if we had seen each other every […]

  • I’ve been dreaming of a broken heart since the day we met*

    - 27 November 2012 -

    While I watched him pack and leave I kept thinking: Is this what I really want? Why don’t I put a stop to this madness? Come on, don’t ruin this! But I wasn’t ruining anything… I was just doing what […]

  • .

    - 6 November 2012 -

    A new era is about to begin. I am scared shitless. And a bit curious and anxious. It’s 12 grade all over again…

  • A weekend with Martha

    - 16 October 2012 -

    Actually, she’s not just Martha, she’s MY Martha. I was shocked when I realise that we’ve known each other only for three years. On the other hand, I am damn proud of our special relationship: we’ve managed to remain as […]

  • You can throw away every word I say*

    - 21 September 2012 -

    Baking bread has a special meaning to me. I vividly remember my grandma and my aunts from the countryside baking it every Saturday morning. I was never allowed to mess around with the dough (I think grandma was afraid it […]

  • ‘The future hasn’t happened yet’

    - 3 May 2012 -

    I don’t know if I like Bucharest anymore as I find myself longing for weekends as far away as possible from here. It’s so refreshing to see new faces, new buildings, to breathe cleaner air, to eat in a new […]
