One month of traveling

Standard

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

Standard

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

Standard

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

How to be a complete idiot in 30 steps

Standard

Firstly let me set up the scene. I’m in Lugo, Galicia for 10 days now and I decided to visit something outside the city too. So today I choose A Coruña. It’s two hours away by bus. I arrived around 2 pm, I had bus back at 8 pm.

1. When you get into the new city, don’t trust google maps when it’s saying you’re going farther away from the spot you were meant to head to. Keep on going in the wrong way for at least 40 minutes.

2. When you do realise you went wrong, don’t take the city bus to save the wasted time. Walk randomly in such a way that it will take you even longer to get back to square one.

3. After 2 hours and more than 8 km later, when you do get back, rest for literally 5 seconds and keep on walking. You’re not tired anyway. Citește restul acestei intrări

Weekend in Westfjords – part 3

Standard

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

Standard

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
