10 days of adventure in Costa Rica – part II

Costa Rica
After a rich breakfast in Selina we went off to Tamarindo, another famous beach in Costa Rica. On our way there we discovered a huge pineapple plantation, another gorgeous beach and a restaurant where we had the best fish ever - La Ostra, located right on the side of the road. As a result to all these pit stops we made it to Tamarindo pretty late at night, and encountered some pouring rain and an electricity blackout in the whole region. Pretty of bad news for a fresh welcome, right? Anyways, I grabbed my hand luggage in one hand and the flashlight in the other and made my way through inside our Selina Hotel accommodation. I wasn’t however very...

10 days of adventure in Costa Rica – part I

selina hostel, manuel antonio, costa rica
And when I say adventure you have to believe me. From lost airplanes, stolen luggage to falling out of the rafting boat. But let's start with the beginning. After a white night I embarked on the Bucharest - Amsterdam - Atlanta - San Jose route prepared to endure the 23 hours of flight and stopovers. Only that the 23 hours extended for another 14 hours, because Atlanta airport security is something like the walking of a snail, so we lost the flight to San Jose and had to wait until the next day to board the next flight.

budapest, aria hotels
My darlings, I promised you in the last article that we will continue together the adventure through Budapest. I’ll tell you again: I like to indulge myself. But it looks like the team over at Madison Perfumery, know that too. How? The exclusive perfumery did not limit to our country and open a place in Budapest where you can also receive cosmetic treatments. I was delighted to accept the invitation and enjoy an extraordinary facial treatment. But I couldn’t leave empty handed and of course I bought the newest Kilian perfume that became my favorite. But the shopping session wasn’t over. I could not miss the most famous shopping street in Budapest. The Andrassy Route is known by locals as the...

How to spend 4 days in Budapest

Budapest The Parliament
I love to travel and yes, I dream that someday under my job description, there will be traveler also. I have told you so far about Palau, Panama, Israel, and other distant destinations that I have checked. Today I want to take you with me on a short trip, but full of beautiful experiences.Where? To Budapest. The flight is too short, so I chose to drive up there, especially since I like any road trip where be myself taking the wheel. The road was beautiful and I was happy to be able to see our country. Even though some drivers hate to cross Romania driving, I'm the kind of person who enjoys the road and so I arrived...

10 reasons why you should visit Israel – part II

Israel, Akko, travel, trip
Because it was near, the next morning we took a short cruise on the Sea of ​​Galilee, the famous biblical scene where Jesus walked on water. Our group and a group of Chinese people, where the only ones on the boat and the hosts surprised us with a beautiful moment. They raised our countries flags and played each country's national anthem. Then they taught us a traditional Jewish dance After the cruise, I went to Capernaum, the town where Jesus did three miracles, where we visited the ruins of the synagogue and home and St. Peter. We continued our journey to Nazareth where we visited the church that houses the spring where the Archangel appeared to Virgin Mary...

10 reasons why you should visit Israel – part I

Jerusalem, Mount of Olives, Travel
But first the story. Last month I was invited by Sorin Dutoiu &  Christian Stan  from Travel for Senses in a trip organized with Israeli Ministry of Tourism , to discover what wonderful places this country offers. Until then, Israel meant to me, primarily, holy places full of stories, places that  I wanted to see since I was a kid . I was born into a religious family and studied the Bible every week, so to see those places was a dream come true. But I discovered that Israel is much more than that. I was impressed by how modern this country is, they super nightlife, the food, the avant-garde designers and the last but not least, the very...

My Palau adventure – Part III

Peleliu Island Bloody Beach
The last part of my Palau adventure began on the island of Peleliu, where one of the most important battles between Americans and Japanese took place in World War II The island is full of remnants reminiscent of the bloody battle. Rusty tanks, guns, and holes in Mount Umurbrogol, from where the  Japanese were defending themselves. Photos by Rares Pulbere I was telling you in the previous post that we stayed at Storyboard, a complex of 6 houses overlooking the beach. The place is very well maintained, good food, but in the evening is better to stay indoors because it is full of insects, crabs and other creatures. In fact the whole island has live beaches in the evening. I do not recommend to...

7 orase pe care vreau sa le vizitez in 2017

Una din marile mele dorinte in 2017 este sa calatoresc. Si nu ma refer in vacantele legale sau sa fug cate un city break de 2 ori pe an. Imi doresc sa devin calator de meserie. Wow cum suna asta.🙈 Scrisa negru pe alb suna pompos chiar si pentru mine. Sunt foarte constienta ca in acest moment nu este realizabil, dar cred ca nu este imposibil. Deci sa zicem ca este o dorinta pe termen lung si ceea ce fac in urmatoarele 12 luni ma va aduce mai aproape de visul meu. Asa ca anul acesta o sa incep cu o lista scurta de 7 orase noi, pe care imi doresc sa le vizitez. Unele sunt in curs de planificare, dar...

My Palau Adventure – Part II

If in the first post I was telling you that we got adjusted to the island and moved a bit with the kayaks, in this post we have enough adrenaline. We decided that we must discover everything the island has to offer. We started with a land tour for recognition, which was not very hard. The island has a road on the east side and one on the west side 😂. The rest are some little threads on the map and you are not advised to go that way (but we don’t like to be told what to do 😉) The first day I went with a guide, in Babeldaob, the largest island, north of Koror. I saw Ngardmau Falls, which is very...

First part of my Palau adventure

Back to reality, cold and routine, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It is nice to go on vacation, but at some point I  start to miss darling people in my life, my bed and the intimacy of my home. But enough nostalgia. Today I want to tell you about the special places I have visited in my last vacation in Palau. Until I found the offer, I didn’t even know where Palau is on the map and now I’m watching documentaries about the island. I don’t know a cheap route to recommend you. You can track the apps in the last travel post and maybe a system error occurs. (Now there’s an Amsterdam-Palau offer for 450 euros) Otherwise I believe the...
