    6 fantasy modes of transport that we’d all love to experience

    Ever find yourself staring out the train window and daydreaming? Like you’re barely taking anything in the real world in. It captures us all from time to time, and as busy as I’ve been lately, a little reprieve from reality has been pretty welcome. I’m a little jealous of the little ones, whose minds are still open to other ways of getting around. But then I thought, hey – why should they have all the fun?! Imagine if some of the other ways of travelling from movies, books, games and other media were made real. If that sounds outlandish, don’t forget that blimps very nearly took off as a major…

    Another story about him…

    He looks so smart dressed but at the same time not so… He’s sitting on a priority seat and reading his newspaper. Is not one he bought but one that was just given to him outside the station by one of the newspaper agents? Not sure how they are called… He might be in his 50’s but could very well be younger in his 40’s? The white hair and the glasses he is wearing say he is in his 50’s. A wedding ring on shines on his hand but that is not stopping him glancing at the young ladies in the corner. He keeps moving the newspaper and at the…

    About her…

    She doesn’t have a chance…it makes me sad… I see how she’s looking at the girl with a short skirt…she would love to be like her… They are probably both in their teens. They look like they are anyway. I see her like me…a girl who would love to be thinner, a girl who would love to wear nicer clothes, a girl that gets noticed when she walks on the street.

With her they are three women…one that seems to be her mum and the mums friends…I can’t hear…

They both read the same newspaper, they are not holding hands but every now end then they look at each other and talk. You can see how much they live each other by they look in each other eyes. It’s like…

    Mihai Eminescu and his heritage

    Mihai Eminescu is the national poet of Romania.  His poems will be read by young people in schools and not only for years and years to come. He was born on January 15,1850, in Botosani in the Province of Moldavia. As his is just around the corner i thought i should share with you my love for his poetry.
