SUMMER WILL COME … SOMEDAY

Post available in English and Romanian
Daca ar fi sa am un motto in Urzeala Tronurilor, as adapta zicala familiei Stark: “Vine iarna!”. Mie nu imi place iarna, prefer sa raman copilul verii.

Tocmai de asta sunt convinsa ca marea nu e facuta sa fie vazuta doar vara, o poti admira chiar si intr-o zi de noiembrie. Acum arata parca si mai frumoasa, cu malurile ei pustii si linistite, dar infuriata de vantul care bate inspre tarm. Trag aer adanc in piept si aproape ca simt sarat pe varful limbii. Stau aici, ma linistesc pret de cateva clipe … apoi plec mai departe, cu gandurile mele. Parca “galagia” din mintea mea se reduce de fiecare data cand ajung la mare. Nu pot sa stau prea mult … e prea rece cu mine acum, dar nu o las singura, pescarusii vor fi alaturi de ea, indiferent de anotimp. Stie si marea, la fel de bine ca mine, ca intr-un final … vine vara!

If I were to have a motto in Game of Thrones, I’d adapt the famous Stark words: “Winter is coming”. I don’t like winter, I’d rather be a summer child.

It’s the reason why I’m convinced that the sea is not made to be seen only during the summer time, it can be admired even on a November day. She’s even more beautiful, with empty and quiet shores, but infuriated by the wind beating toward the seaside. I take a deep breath and I can almost taste the salt on my tongue. I stay here, in a tranquil state for a few moments … then I move on, with my thoughts. It’s funny how the “noise” in my head dims every time I stand here. I can’t stay for long … she’s cold with me now, but I’m not leaving her alone, the seagulls are always here, no matter the season. The sea knows as well as I do that in the end … summer is coming!

NOW YOU SEA ME

Abia am trecut de jumatatea lunii aprilie, dar deja am fost loviti de valul de caldura. Pazea, cred ca la vara trecem la nivelul urmator: o sa ne prajim incet-incet la rotisor in Bucuresti. Dar nu sunt aici sa ma plang. Serios! Chiar daca blogul se numeste “In Orasul Trist” eu raman optimista si zambitoare. Orasul e singurul trist din povestea asta. Asadar … sa fugim din oras, pentru o clipa. La finalul celei mai calduroase zile de pana acum in 2016, va fac pofta de o tura la mare cu pozele astea: It’s only mid-April but the heat wave is already here. Watch out! In the summer we’ll reach the next level: oven temperatures in Bucharest. But I’m not complaining. Honestly! Even if my blog’s name is “In the Sad Town”, I’m very much optimistic and cheerful. The city is the only sad character in this story. So … let’s take a trip outside the city, for just a moment.

REVIEW: MY STAY IN DUBROVNIK, CROATIA

Post available in English and Romanian
In Dubrovnik am avut placerea sa stau la un hotel de vis. Am ales Hotelul Excelsior, situat chiar pe faleza, la doar cateva minute de mers pe jos de centrul orasului. Ca sa fiu sincera, nu as mai fi plecat acasa. Noi am avut o camera cu vedere la mare, situata in partea veche a hotelului. I stayed in Dubrovnik at a dreamy hotel, Excelsior, with a perfect sea view, located at a walking distance from the city center. To be honest, I never wanted to leave this place. We had a room with a sea view in the old part of the hotel.

GOODBYE SUMMER

Post available in English and Romanian
Zilele acestea m-am relaxat la Mamaia; am fost norocoasa pentru ca vremea a fost perfecta. Am avut parte si de o priveliste speciala, chiar inainte de rasarit. Uneori, o simpla imagine e de ajuns ca sa iti schimbi putin perspectiva. La revedere vara, bun venit toamna 🙂 These days I took a relaxing trip to Mamaia; I was lucky, because the weather was perfect. Here, the view was spectacular just before sunrise. Sometimes, an image is all it takes to change your perspective. Goodbye summer, Welcome Autumn!

DUBROVNIK MEMORIES

Post available in English and Romanian
Dubrovnik e cu siguranta una dintre destinatiile mele preferate. Un oras incredibil de frumos in care poti sa ratacesti cu orele fara sa te plictisesti; apoi te poti relaxa pe plaja. Marea Adriatica are o culoare fascinanta la Dubrovnik, orasul pe care multi il stiti deja din Game of Thrones (da, este una dintre locatiile folosite in serial). Dubrovnik is one of my favorite destinations. You can wander around this incredible city for hours, and then you can relax on the beach. The Adriatic Sea has an amazing color here, in this city that most of you know from Game of  Thrones (it’s one of the filming locations).
