• A day in Sintra

    - 11 March 2017 -

    While we were in Lisbon we decided to take a day trip to Sintra, an amazing city very close to Lisbon. We took the train for about 40 minutes (and I remember that we paid around 6 euro for a […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Les Pezi

    - 19 February 2016 -

    (07.02.2016 – Lespezi) On that particular Sunday we woke up again at 5 a.m. By 6 we were picking up Julien and Carmen and with a trunk loaded with gear we headed towards Capra, hoping that we would find suitable […]

  • Heaven on earth (part 3)

    - 20 December 2015 -

    It’s time to end this trilogy before the start of the new year :D I’m always making amends that I’ll blog as soon as I get back from one of our outings and then… well, then life happens. But who knows, maybe […]

  • Heaven on earth (part two)

    - 30 November 2015 -

    The Lensbaby pictures. (Damn, I haven’t used my camera – not to mention that lens – in such a long time. I hate it when I don’t have time to travel…)  

  • 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 […]

  • I need my girl*

    - 12 December 2014 -

    (17-18.09.2014, Piatra Mare) Martha really liked it when we went trekking in Romania last year, so we decided to go on another trek this year as well. We didn’t have that many days at our disposal and actually, thinking about […]

  • 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 :)  

  • Велико Търново

    - 12 October 2014 -

    Ever since I went to climb there two years ago, I knew I’d go back and actually visit Veliko Tarnovo. It’s just 170 km away from Bucharest, the food is excellent there, the view is amazing – it’s definitely one […]

  • 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. […]

  • Debrecen in December

    - 16 March 2014 -

    The last three days of 2013 were rather busy. We went to the mountains, we met my friends in Baia Mare and we took a small road trip to Debrecen with my parents. Debrecen is the second largest city in […]

  • 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 […]

  • Take me with you when you go*

    - 10 September 2013 -

    (Bărcaciu, 23-25.07.2013) Martha came over for 12 days this summer. Of course I planned my holiday to coincide with her stay. One thing is for sure: no matter how much time we spend apart and no matter what happens with […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Living violently awesome days…

    - 25 June 2012 -

    The moment I set foot in this country I felt at home. On the way to Andreea‘s home from the airport, an old man looked at the reindeer antlers I was wearing (inside joke), looked at us, smiled and said […]

  • Mum, I’m home!

    - 13 April 2012 -

    Here I am with a Weizen next to my laptop enjoying my first day back home. The train ride was uneventful except the fact that I’m almost sure I was in the same compartment with one of my school mates […]

  • Hallo, Köln! Hallo, Bon Iver!

    - 6 November 2011 -

    I know the saying goes something like ‘third time’s the charm’, but for me it was the second time. The first time we were in Köln we stayed for a couple of hours. Now we had two full days to […]

  • C’est une belle journée*

    - 14 September 2011 -

    I can’t believe that Gabi, my Gabi, got married! And his was a wedding I couldn’t miss, I didn’t want to miss. We were almost desk mates in high school (meaning we were desk mates when I moved to the […]
