Aruba – one happy island

Aruba is probably one of the best known and full of life islands in the Caribbean. Most people fall in love with it and return each year. I also fell in love with Aruba but as I still have so much to see and most likely I will not return as soon as I would…

Oradea, a new image

It is difficult to put into words how happy I am when I see good things happening in Romania when it comes to travel possibilities. I had the chance to revisit Oradea after many years and wow… it is clearly not the city I knew 10-15 years ago. Oradea’s restoration stands for job wonderfully done…

Octopus – aiming at stylish, modern cuisine

Octopus opened recently and I think it stands for the interest showed in the last years in Bucharest to modern cuisine with a twist. The restaurant is not perfect but I appreciated their trying to make something different and with time hopefully perfection will come. Octopus raises just a little to the name and focuses on just…

Kunnai – a taste of Thai in Bucharest

I was really impressed by Kunnai. I visited the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon with a desire to discover new tastes. I am not a true lover of spicy cuisines or of Asian tastes, although I am always open to new. The restaurant is not quite in the center in Bucharest or in an area full with restaurants…

Kitesurfing in Aruba

Aruba is truly a heaven for water sports lovers. On its most famous beach – Palm Beach you can practice anything you imagine in terms of water sports. And if you don’t practice them it is also amazing to just watch those who are… Whatever comes out of you mind you can try it here, such…

Bonaire – more than just a divers’ paradise

When preparing my trip to Aruba & Curacao, I came across some information and diving photos from Bonaire that caught my attention and immediately decided to include Bonaire on my trip. I was not a diver at that time but I was attracted by the idea of getting into deep and discover the underwater world,…

Dublin – a vibrant city

Ireland’s capital offers a truly vibrant experience. I would say that the vivacity of the city impressed me the most. Compared to other European capitals I would say that Dublin is not that wealthy in “regular” tourist attractions, but it compensates by the vibe it gives you by just walking its streets and having a…

West Coast of Ireland (astonishing Cliffs of Moher)

Ireland is an astonishing country with beautiful scenery, no wonder it inspired so many writers… Green lands and hills, stone fences, sheep and cows resting on the green grass is what you can see if you cross the country.  Although, I normally don’t go for arranged tours, as I had one day to spare during…

Dublin, in terms of food or better say drinks

When you say Ireland and Dublin, alcohol pops out, more precisely beer and whiskey…  They have a history in making them the right way and Dublin is also house of Guinness Storehouse and of Jameson Distillery, both being open for visiting, special tours and tastings. I am neither a whiskey lover, nor a beer drinker…

Howth, a true treasure on the outskirts of Dublin 

An amazing fishermen town just 30 min from Dublin center. I would say that it has so much to offer that it’s definitely worth an afternoon visit or even a day. At the hotel they suggested coming here if we want to see cliffs near Dublin. We haven’t seen them as we arrived late and we…

Dragobete, Romanians’ celebration of love

Romanians celebrate love  and the beginning of spring today. Dragobete is somehow the Romanian traditional equivalent of Valentine’s Day with pagan roots and with different customs in Romanian rural areas that is celebrated each year on February 24. It comes from Dacian time, Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia and is considered the God of Love, a…

Are detox programs worth it?

My answer would be NOT really… but I am not fully convinced yet The message captured in the above image is quite suggestive for how my life is. The tablet was a birthday gift and I have to recognize that often I struggle between the two… Being the regular corporate woman working from morning till…
