    (13-15.09.2014, Sofia) Sorry folks, we had some technical problems (why do hackers care about this lousy blog?!), but now, thanks to the help of a very very patient friend, we’re back in business :) So, Sofia… First of all, I […]

  • 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 :)  

  • 2925 m

    - 19 October 2014 -

    (12-13.09.2014) This was one of the best holidays ever. I think it had something to do with the people: Martha came all the way from Germany to be with us; Nicu, Bogdan, Dana and Roxana are our BFF from the […]

  • Велико Търново

    - 12 October 2014 -

    - 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 […]

  • 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 -

    - 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 […]

  • Nothing will be the same again?

    - 1 November 2013 -

    Taking into consideration what has been going on in my family lately, I have the awful feeling that nothing will be the same again. I’ll be torn between a part of the family and the other and everything that I’ve […]

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

    (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 […]

    (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 […]

    - 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 […]
