Dogs are the happiest creatures right now

I took these pictures only last Sunday, in a park near Hampstead Heath. I had gone for the allowed walk for exercise and was keeping my distance. It now seems it was such a long time ago. After 14 days in isolation in my room in London - where I was stuck doing literally everything, … Continue reading Dogs are the happiest creatures right now

The Birth of Spring – Part 2

It is a cruel consolation to know and see Nature going on as it should go. A consolation because at least something looks normal. While we are in lockdown at home, with our lives on hold, not being able to plan not even short term, piles of anxiety, sadness, loneliness and depression are a contrast … Continue reading The Birth of Spring – Part 2

My solo trip to Mexico – itinerary, transportation & accommodation

Last year I spent 14 days in Mexico. I wrote about my experiences in each city I visited but I never really explained the itinerary.

Once upon a time there was a place in Europe, in a country named Romania. There was a class of wealthy inhabitants who aspired to leave, only to come back with heads full of magnificient ideas.

One morning in beautiful Sinaia, Romania

Being in Sinaia is almost as being inside of a Tim Burton movie. I fell in love from the moment I stepped out of the station. A small park where I had to go through was covered it autumnal leaves. I was sad I didn't have the chance to stay in Braşov for longer, but … Continue reading One morning in beautiful Sinaia, Romania

What I wanted in Brașov

I didn’t want to leave Brașov. That small adorable town, protected by mountain slopes, where colorful pastel buildings in art nouveau style decorated the streets. Where a sweet smell transpired in the evening as the street vendors distributed warm chimney cakes. Where there was an aspiration to be in the past, and yet to live … Continue reading What I wanted in Brașov
