• 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: […]

  • I’ll follow you like a stray*

    - 28 October 2015 -

    (08.08.2015 – Refugiul Bătrâna) Last June we went on the same trail and we couldn’t see anything because of the miserable weather. This year we took my beloved Andreea and Dragoș out for an easy trek and we still couldn’t […]

  • Baby, did you forget to take your meds?*

    - 12 September 2015 -

    (17-21.07.2015, Bulgaria) Lately I’ve been so busy with everything (summer holiday, translating, work etc.) that I haven’t found the time to sit down and write about one of our last trips abroad. Last year when we went to Musala and […]

  • You’re just like a dream*

    - 12 July 2015 -

    (30.04-02.05.2015, Măcin) Eight of us decided to spend a long weekend trekking in Măcin, the oldest mountains in the country. We drove there, got out our backpacks and headed on one of the lightest treks ever. Being so old, these mountains […]

  • Better together*

    - 14 February 2015 -

    (24-25.01.2015, Cozia) On the 22nd I returned from Germany, on the 23rd I celebrated my birthday by not going to work and on the 24th we embarked upon another trekking trip. I really wanted to go away from Bucharest, to […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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! […]

  • Panique aux fanatiques tac tic tac tic*

    - 5 June 2014 -

    (01.-04.05.2014, Retezat, cabana Pietrele) I was soooo happy to go on this trek trip! I had spent my weekends translating and the night before we left I sent in my translation and I felt free and happy. A huge stone […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • It’s something unpredictable but in the end it’s right*

    - 29 September 2013 -

    (2-4.08.2013, Podragu, Moldoveanu) At the beginning of August Adi and Bogdan planned another trekking trip and of course I tagged along. I am really sorry for the guys, but now that I’ve discovered how much I like this weekend activity, […]

  • A long, long time ago I can still remember…*

    - 1 June 2013 -

    …I went rock climbing again. I woke up at 6, wanted to go back to bed, defeated my laziness and managed to met up with Dănuț and Adiță. We laughed, talked and gossiped on the way there. We were all […]

  • Till the end*

    - 20 May 2013 -

    This Easter, as I was heading back to Bucharest, I felt relieved. It was the first time I didn’t feel that I lived in two separate worlds at the same it. I was looking forward to getting back to MY […]

  • As long as I can go*

    - 21 December 2011 -

    These last two weeks have been horrible. I am overworked, overstressed, overunhappy. I though I could break free from the prison called work and do it on my own as a freelancer but all my dreams and hopes were shattered. […]

  • Wie weit willst du gehen*

    - 26 July 2011 -

    Well, Vio came and went. We didn’t get to spend very much time together and I’m a bit upset about that but in the end it’s still OK: we got to talk late in the night, something which I hadn’t […]

  • The Horror Has Gone*

    - 2 December 2010 -

    I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I said I wanted new tiles. No one told me about the mess, the dust, the long process. I wasn’t prepared for all of that. Thank God that my […]

  • Me and whose army?*

    - 19 December 2009 -

    Old crushes don’t live anymore where they used to so it’s ok for me to take a look at a certain balcony on the 4th floor. Old friends don’t mean anything to me anymore so it’s ok to pass daily […]

  • In the room where you sleep*

    - 25 November 2009 -

    Waking up at 8 has never been easier. I never-ever thought I could do it and here I am. By 8:30 this morning I had made tea and washed half the dishes in the sink. Now it’s almost 10:30 and […]
