This blog post is going to be a short one, but with so many beautiful photos presenting #myRomania! So stay tuned! Two weeks ago, we had a day off from work and my cousin asked me if we were willing to leave Bucharest that weekend. Well, of course! We are always ready to travel! So we immediately thought of going to the mountains. Asked another friend of ours to join us and the plan was already made. We were escaping Bucharest for 1 day. Yuhuu Ok, so we were all really enthusiastic about this trip and woke up pretty early in the morning. We've met our friends and off we went to our destination for the day, which in this case was Sinaia. From there we wanted to reach the height of 2000 m by climbing the mountain that rises above this small town.
One month ago, husband and I really needed a break-out from our daily routine and a one-day trip was just perfect at the moment. My father also joined us and off we went to one of my favorite cities in Romania - Sibiu, which is absolutely amazing. Romania is a wonderful country and I will always try to highlight this and share my pictures and stories to as many people as I can. Romania has great mountains - the Carpathians, the Black Sea and also the Danube Delta. So it's kind of unique, right? A lot of tourists hear about Transylvania and most of them believe it's a different country than Romania, but hell no... Transylvania is just a region in Romania. An awesome one if you ask me... and Sibiu is a medieval town part of this area!
Sicily! Ohhh Sicily! This was certainly one of our best trips. We stayed 6 days and we were a total of 6 friends looking forward to have lots of fun and explore as much as we could. Which we totally did! Just to have a first impression, our tour included the following locations: Castellammare del Golfo, Mondello, Palermo, Cefalù and San Vito lo Capo. Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea located in Europe. It is an autonomous Region of Italy, along with surrounding minor islands, officially referred to as Regione Siciliana. The total area of the island is 25,711 km2 while the Autonomous Region of Sicily (which includes smaller surrounding islands) has an area of 27,708 km2.
Hello hello! Long time no see dear travelers! This time I would like to talk to you about one of the most beautiful cities in Romania in my opinion. And I’m guessing it’s not only my opinion… This amazing city is Timisoara! Timisoara is also known as the city of roses and parks, and has a very green face, especially in spring, when tulips abound. Some call it little Vienna, because of similar architecture and the number of museums. It’s the third most populous city in the country, with 319,279 inhabitants and also the informal capital city of the historical region of Banat. In September 2016, Timisoara was selected as the European Capital of Culture for 2021. Yaaay
Hello Budapest! I have to tell you this: with stunning architecture, refreshing thermal baths, and a culture that can be unique, Hungary's capital lives up to its reputation. Budapest is one of those cities that constantly ranks in various Top 10 lists, however it’s still hardly visited by many travelers. And that's a bummer... The Hungarian capital is really two cities – Buda and Pest – separated by the wide tract of the Danube, and only officially became one entity towards the end of the 19th century.
Dear London, you were almost perfect! Why "almost"? Because of your crappy weather, of course. However, we did have an amazing time and we are looking forward to see you again! So yeah, I have to admit that London wasn't on our bucket-list and that's only because we love the sun... more than... the rain :)) Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay in London, which is enormous by the way and our 3 days spent there weren't enough to see all the places that husband and I wanted to visit. I think you'll probably need at least 1 week or so to see this amazing city at its best.
Hey guys! Back as I promised! Our last trip was in Milan and on DAY 2 we wanted to see the beauty of Lake Como. There are so many wonderful small villages by the lake, but the most picturesque and most popular is by far Bellagio. This is also why George Clooney, Sting, Woody Allen, Donatella Versace, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone and Ronaldinho own their villas in this tranquil paradise. Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin located in the region of Lombardia. It's the third largest lake in Italy and also one of the deepest lakes in Europe at over 400 meters deep. It's shaped as an upside-down “Y” where the two arms are surrounded by the pre-Alps. Already a popular destination for aristocrats since Roman times, in the last twenty years it has become a very popular tourist destination.
Hello travelers! Today I want to tell you about my very last trip that husband and I had in Milan, Italy's fashion capital. But please don't let its reputation for style distract you because underneath it all, Milan can be more than this! Although I have to be honest and tell you that we were quite reserved at the beginning and did not expect much when we decided to visit this city, but in the end, it really surprised us in a pleasant way! When we started traveling on our own, we also started chasing the best deals, meaning also the cheapest ones, of course. For this trip we booked our Ryanair flight, from Bucharest to Milan, with only 5 Euros. I am not kidding. Only 5 Euros, it's true. And for the return flight, we booked Wizzair with 10 Euros. So this means no more and no less than 15 Euros each. AWEEESOME!
Hello hello! I'm back to tell you about our DAY 3 which was a day-trip from Rome to this magical town named Sperlonga. This was by far the most relaxing day but we still had some little adventures on this day too, no worries^^ So, let's start properly. Why Sperlonga? I've heard about this little town from my good friend @ipiripinapa and fell in love with it immediately as her photos were absolutely gorgeous. I knew I had to see it for myself as soon as possible! So this was a perfect occasion to visit this amazing town. Sperlonga is pretty close to Rome, 2 hours by train + bus, from Termini Central Station.
Hello there! Today I want to share with you guys moments and photos from my latest trip. Husband and I visited Rome in November, 2016 and I knew we would love this city even before going there. I am really fascinated about the Roman Empire which was the most extensive political and social structure in western civilization. But why is Rome being called the ETERNAL CITY? Well, ancient Romans believed that no matter what happened to the world or how many empires came and collapsed, Rome would go on forever. And guess what? They were right! Oh and another thing... did you know the saying "all roads lead to Rome" is actually true? The Romans were extremely skilled road makers and the first to establish such a system of roads. They were also the first to use mile-markers and they designed their roads purposefully so that they all really led to Rome. So are you ready for this? Let's Rome!
