JUST BREATHE

Post available in English and Romanian
Se mai intampla sa ai momente in care simti ca toate belelele din viata te apasa. Poate crezi ca nu o sa gasesti niciodata o rezolvare … toti ne blocam asa din cand in cand. Pentru astfel de clipe, eu recomand o solutie destul de simpla: fuga in natura.

Cel putin o zi cu soare, relaxare si cateva momente doar cu tine si cerul deasupra. Cam asa a fost ultimul meu weekend. Cu bune si cu rele, am incercat sa absorb doar partea frumoasa a lucrurilor.

There are times when you feel like you are surrounded by all the bad things in the world. You may think you’ll never find a solution for all your problems … we all get stuck in a moment from time to time. For moments like this, I have a simple solution: return to nature.
At least one sunny day, relaxation and a few moments alone with yourself and the sky above. This was my weekend summed up in a short blog post. With good and bad moments, I tried to retain only the good side of things.

 

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.

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).

CRETA, UN PARADIS ACCESIBIL / CRETE, AN ACCESSIBLE PARADISE

Post available in English and Romanian
Odata ajuns in Creta parca nu iti mai vine sa mai pleci. Nici nu e de mirare ca aceste meleaguri au prosperat inca din epoca bronzului. In Creta am avut parte de o experienta perfecta, in care lectiile de istorie si cele culturale s-au impletit frumos cu cateva ore petrecute pe plaja, la soare.
Ne-am cazat in Stalida, un orasel pe care l-as recomanda celor care vor sa se distreze in taverne si baruri, dar si familistilor convinsi. Aici poti foarte bine sa incepi seara intr-un bar si sa continui distractia pana dimineata in cluburi. La fel de bine poti lua cina intr-un restaurant de familie si apoi sa te retragi linistit la somn.

Plajele din Stalida mi-au placut la nebunie. Sunt largi, cu nisip fin si te conduc spre marea de un albastru incredibil.

Stalida a fost punctul nostru de plecare pentru multe excursii de neuitat.

Once you arrive in Crete, you wish you’d never have to go back. It’s no wonder these lands have prospered even in the bronze age. I’ve had a perfect stay in Crete. Here, the history lessons and cultural sights can be easily combined with a few hours spent on the beach.
We stayed in Stalida (Stalis), an ex-fisherman’s village that now can host both partying people and families. Here you can start your evening in a bar and keep partying until dawn, but as well, you can dine in a family restaurant and then go straight to bed.
I loved the beaches in Stalis. Fine sand for as long as you can see, that leads you to bathe in a clear – blue, picture perfect sea.

Stalis was our departing point for many unforgettable trips.
