Fericirea e șireată

Fericirea e șireată

Fericirea e un du-te, vino amețit, fără cap și fără coadă, în care fugi dintr-o parte în alta ca o găină fără cap. Fericirea te trântește și te iubește, te izbește până când nu mai știi cum te cheamă, îți dă timp fix o frântură de secundă, cât să respiri și când crezi că e aproape gata, te ia din nou, talmeș-balmeș și te face să râzi ca un om nebun. Nebun de fericire, de amețeală, beat de la fluturii…

How to rock Ireland without a car

If you’re planning to head to Ireland and you read up a little bit you’re gonna soon realize that you HAVE to rent a car. But if you can’t drive, don’t want to drive on the left side of the road or are under 25 which makes it a little bit more complicated – then this post is for you: Ireland for non-drivers, bus lovers, train hoppers or young travelers. So the first thing I thought was yay, carpooling! It’s…

Corazon, amorcito, por favor

Corazon, amorcito, por favor

This is a free of structure post where a song, the rain and well-placed candles make it happen all together. Where I don’t think about the constant rainstorms and thunderstorms I’ve been biking through in the last day, where it doesn’t matter I sleep 9 hours a night with no visible benefits on my mind and body but on the dark circles on my face. Where it’s ok I haven’t done laundry yet or finally framed those photos waiting for…

Analfabetizarea Madalinei

Analfabetizarea Madalinei

Sa ma iertati, va rog. Cand va vorbesc ciudat in expresii care nu au sens in romana, cand stau in telefon cate 20 sec si ma incapatanesc sa gasesc cuvantul “dulap”, cand trantesc cate un cuvant in engleza la fiecare 3 romanesti. Cand va intreb “are you ok?” in loc de esti bine si va zic “see you later” in loc de “ne vedem mai tarziu, pastram legatura”. E cel putin la fel de frustrant pentru noi, cei care ne…

5 Myths about Greece and Greeks

5 Myths about Greece and Greeks

I’ve had some wrong ideas about Greece, particularly Athens before I went there. I heard so many times that the Greeks are lazy that it stuck to my head even if I didn’t actively believe. I expected a poor and deserted city, somewhat of a shadow of the beautiful photos on Google. I though men are strong-headed and machos and are women are tough ladies with beautiful hair – well, that part is true. I was ready for 20 degrees…

Why Venice is beautiful in January

Why Venice is beautiful in January

I’m not gonna lie, it’s gonna be miserable weather. It might rain, it’s gonna be cold and humid, oh, so humid. Your hair will be all frizzy and your shoes will get wet. But it’s gonna be lovely in a very different way. When I was doing my research on Venice, reviews were not very encouraging and I couldn’t tell how busy the island is gonna be. So I ended up booking an airbnb right on the island (got a…

Today’s joys

Today’s joys

…come from getting a goodie pack from home. And while I can’t really eat the amount of pork, beef and extra pork sent I realized that it just makes me nostalgic because it smells like home. Smoked ham, zacuscă, cured meats and homemade sausages – all of that smells like home. I’ve never had it before. Add the cozonac smell and you have yourself a non-foodie happy woman with a full fridge to last her the next 3 months.
