7 months and still counting


I keep being asked a lot of questions by friends or strangers. And so I thought to celebrate my 7th month of traveling by answering (again) to some of them. If you have any other questions, now it’s the time for them!  So with no further due and in no particular order.. here we go: Citește restul acestei intrări


One month of traveling


One month. I have to say it one more time: I have been traveling for a month now. I don’t know where the time passed, as cliché as it might sound.

Nine airports, seven cities, five planes, three countries, one overbooked flight, one cancelled, three buses, six beaches, three different timezones, tens and tens of walked kilometres, three old friends met, one gone camera, tens of photos and videos lost, one burnt dolphin but most importantly one inner kid kept happy.

Before starting my trip I kept saying I do not know what to expect. Now that I’ve been on the road I can honestly say it is nothing similar with whatever I thought. First of all

Spectacol pe Broadway în New York


Anul trecut am fost să văd Chicago. Unul dintre filmele mele preferate din seria muzicalurilor, am scris despre asta acum mulți ani. A fost musai să îl văd și, deși nu mai este atât de renumit după 20 de ani de când a început, pentru mine a fost extrem de emoționant. Am fost cu lacrimi în ochi de câteva ori mai ales la piesele principale (că de știut le știam pe toate). Totuși anul acesta am decis să văd ceva nou. Citește restul acestei intrări

New York – prima zi: compost, cimitir și universitate


M-am tot calculat dacă să scriu în română sau în engleză, dar în sfârșit am decis să o dau înainte cu limba maternă. Prea le tot combin.

Prima zi în New York a venit cu micuțe întâmplări. Una incredibilă, una amuzantă, două tâmpite și una delicioasă. Iar una extraordinară.  Citește restul acestei intrări

Weekend in Westfjords – part 3


Bolungarvik – Bíldudalur

After I had that amazing smoothie, I went back to hitchhike my way out of that area. I have to admit, even with the new shoes, I was starting to feel a bit disappointed and my moral was going quite low.

And the fact I was waiting for 30 minutes for someone to pick me up wouldn’t help. It was around 4 pm and so it was starting to get late… thinking the day before around the same time I was making it to Ísafjörður.

Anyhow, finally someone stopped and told me Citește restul acestei intrări

Weekend in Westfjords – part 2


Ísafjörður – Bolungarvik

As I was saying last time, after a night in which I could barely sleep because of being too cold, I woke up way too late. It took me even longer to get ready for my trip.

Especially because I wasn’t quite sure what to do next or where to head to. And so I heard there is a city close to where I was (around 10 km or so) where I could hike a mountain and, if the weather is really sunny, as it was, I can see Greenland. That sounded really good. Little I knew how wrong I was.

Around midday, I was packed and ready to go. This time it took way longer time for a car to pick me up. And just when I was prepared to give up, Citește restul acestei intrări
