• Top 10 things you should know before visiting Romania

    Romania is a beautiful country. It really needs to be more appreciated by people that live here and of course by people that visit. Compared ┬áto 12 years ago when you rarely met a foreigner visiting my country(one of them is now my husband haha), Romania’s visitors certainly increased in the last couple of years. Some of our really good friends in UK visit Romania at least once a year and that is not because they come and visit us. They sometimes come to Romania to go skiing in the Carpathian Mountains or to sunbath on the beach along side the Black Sea. Yes, we do have a lot to…

    Our 2017 Winter Holiday

    Happy New Year everyone! I know it’s been a while since I wrote on this blog but we’ve been quite busy during the winter holidays. Between celebrations, my work as a freelancer in the world of digital marketing and our prolonged trip to the mountains there was no time to spare whatsoever. But i’ve missed a lot writing here and I had to comeback and share with you a little bit about our last month. We were really happy that daddy was able to stay almost 6 weeks with us but as expected that made saying goodbye a couple of says ago even harder for all of us but especially…

  • 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…

    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 ┬áhunting 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…

  • 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…

  • Donate Colectiv

    A tragedy struck Romania #Colectiv

    Romania is mourning. I am mourning too. A bit over a week ago Romania was struck by tragedy when a club from Bucharest burned down. When the fire started In Colectiv there were more than 400 young people in the club. They were all there for a rock concert – Goodbye To Gravity – a band I didn’t know about before this tragedy but since then I started to listen and love their songs. Many died that night in the fire and many continued to die from the burns and wounds caused by the fire. It was terrible and it continues to be one of the biggest tragedies in the…

  • Bran Castle, Brasov

    A family visit to Bran Castle

    Time has a wonderful way of showing what matters. And so these last couple of months time (life) show me that it is important to give my all to my family. Although I do need to find some balance between time given to the family and time given to myself I couldn’t agree more with the fact that time shown me that my girls and my hubby really needed me these last couple of weeks. But about that in a different post. I am now here to tell you about Bran Castle – a proof that time really show us what matters. I am sure that most of you heard…
