• I’m trying, but I’m graceless*

    - 31 January 2016 -

    (24.01.2015 – Conacul Ursului) I had always underestimated to power of the first time until last week. Heck, the first time I went to the climbing gym it wasn’t about fireworks and butterflies in my stomach, but rather a rational decision: […]

  • We went, we ate, we came back

    - 27 May 2015 -

    (25-26.04.2015) We started late one Saturday afternoon from Bucharest and we arrived in the village next to Veliko Tarnovo at around 5. We left our bags in the room and went by car to the crags where our friends were supposed […]

  • Boulderland

    - 7 November 2014 -

    The climbing gyms in Bucharest are nice but they’re kinda boring. So when I entered Boulderland, I thought I entered bouldering heaven. Yeah, we definitely had a GREAT time there :)  

  • What might have been lost*

    - 1 July 2014 -

    (07-09.06.2014, Sohodol; 14.06.2014, Poiana Stânii) I am a coward. I am one of the weakest people I know. I love climbing, but I’m scared shitless to lead climb. Last summer I had more guts, I lead climbed almost every time […]

  • But the world is spinning slower in my mind*

    - 2 February 2014 -

    (30.12.2013, Creasta Cocoșului) Creasta Cocoșului is where I took my first trekking trip ever. I was in the 7th grade and I went there with some of my colleagues and my Math teacher. It was something new and fun, not […]

  • Words can never make up for what you do*

    - 5 January 2014 -

    It’s 2014 already and I have so many stories to tell from 2013! It was a fabulous year for me, one of the best so far, and I am eager to write everything down so I don’t forget it. On […]

  • I am a passenger and I ride and I ride*

    - 8 December 2013 -

    One sunny September morning we got in the car, picked up Bogdan and Rudy, and then drove all the way to Bușteni so we could trek all the way up on Valea Albă. I had absolutely no idea what I […]

  • Darling, come with me I’ll show you a whole new world*

    - 20 October 2013 -

    (24-25.08.2013, Tamina; 01.09.2013, Belvedere, Predeal; 28.09.2013, Basarbovo) When your climbing partner becomes your boyfriend everything changes for the best. You don’t have to worry about spending too much time at the climbing gym cause he’s there with you. You don’t […]

  • I’ll go anywhere with you*

    - 8 August 2013 -

    (Tamina, 06.07.2013) Climbing trips are the best, especially when you go with the right people. And this time I went with my current climbing partner and two of my exes: we were a small group but we all knew each […]

  • And I still believe that I cannot be saved*

    - 6 July 2013 -

    (Ciucaș, 22-23.06.2013) I thought I was not the outdoor type. Then I remembered that in high school I went hiking with my friends a couple of times and I really enjoyed it. And, a couple of weeks ago, I went […]

  • Second time in Basarbovo

    - 24 March 2013 -

    Yes, yes, I know, I said that I wouldn’t go rock climbing without N. But when A. and D. invited me to go with them to Basarbovo this Saturday, I just couldn’t say no. Of course, I asked N. if […]
