• No more holiday nightmares with Luxury for Less

    I met my husband about 12 years ago when he was travelling/backpacking around Europe. It was his first night in Bucharest actually when I met him and as he was telling me about his stories I wished one day to travel as much as him. Little that we know that we will fall in love, get married and have kids one day and our plans will have to wait for when we are old. I can’t say that we are not travelling though. We’ve been places together alone and with the kids since their blessed our life with their presence. When you travel you feel different, is like you can…

  • Life as a married single parent

    A holiday with my daughters

    These days (since we moved back home anyway) we go on holiday as a family when daddy has a holiday from work. But as he is not coming until august this summer I thought that will be nice to treat my girls with a getaway to the beach anyway. Before he comes home we usually go to the outdoor pool in town or for a day trip to the beach. We live only about half an hour drive from the beach but as I didn’t manage to pass my driving exam last year it is still quite difficult to get there without a car. Sometimes my dad is taking us…

  • Beach

    A Day out in Constanta, Romania

    We are very fortunate to live really close to the seaside and every now and then – more often in the summer – we drive there for a day out or more. This is what we’ve done the second day of Easter. It was a great day – very relaxed and filled with activities. The sun was up so we all walked along side the beach. The girls loved watching the waves splashing on the rocks and the seagulls flying and  hunting for fishes. We even went down below at the beach and throw little sea shells into the water – this was Anastasia’s favourite activity. It was hard to…

  • Visiting Romania: Club Villa Bran

    Romania is not a well known family holiday destination but since I arrived at home I discovered that bit by bit places start to be more welcoming for kids. This is why we decided to visit Club Villa Bran last year. Although we visited it because we wanted to celebrate my birthday when I reserved our places I done it with our girls in our mind. Club Villa Bran is located into a very beautiful area – near Bran Castle.   We visited at the end of September last year but I bet that during winter or summer days the pictures taken from the resort will look even nicer.  As my…

  • Disneyland Paris – Alice In Wonderland

    One of the first places(areas) we stop by when we visited Disneyland Paris back in March was the Alice In Wonderland area. The girls loved it as we chase each other in the maze and believe me it was quite hard to find the exit. Kara was hoping that we will pop into Alice while in the maze but that didn’t happen. I so wish the masters of Disneyland would bring her between the visitors like they do with the princesses. I just think it will be a bonus, something unexpected. What did you think of Alice In Wonderland Maze? Don’t you think that Alice appearance will be so much…

  • Visiting The Look Out Centre Bracknell

    The Look Out Centre – Discovery

    It’s been a while since we visited The Look Out Centre in Bracknell but the experience and the fun we had there its still vivid in our memory. It was great fun there! And while you relax with a coffee your kids can play happily without the danger of getting bored! The centre is not huge(inside) but it has lots of interesting activities that your kids will enjoy and also have lots to learn from – science activities, discovery, water activities and lots and lots of balls and bricks! We visited the centre a couple of times as it was really close to the place my husband lives and as…

  • Bran – A place like no other

    When I am in the mountains I feel like I am finally home. I was born near the seaside and one would think that the sea should maybe be where I like it best. But it’s not. The green of the trees, the fresh air,the kindness of the people you can find up there…all makes me feel more alive and like life it’s worth living. Saying that I can’t quite believe it that this year I visited the mountains after a 10 year long absence. Bran “city” is full of history and stories about Dracula but as I said that’s not what attracts me. After we visited Bran Castle we…
