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...

Top aplicatii de travel

Am scris in ultimul meu post de travel cat de mult imi place sa calatoresc. De cele mai multe ori insa, bugetul, dar si timpul nu imi permit sa fac acest lucru atat de des cat mi-as dori. Imi doresc sa explorez toata lumea si sa ajung, macar odata in fiecare tara de pe glob. Unele destinatii  par insa foarte inaccesibile, cum a fost si Panama. Foarte multi prieteni, dar si cititori m-au intrebat cum am ajuns acolo si de ce am ales aceasta tara. Cand am timp citesc despre destinatii inedite si imi place foarte mult sa explorez tot ce este nou. Drumurile cunoscute sunt si ele interesante, dar lipseste partea aceea de adrenalina. Despre Panama v-am povestit pe...

Why you need to book a ticket to Panama II

And after all this adrenaline and cold weather it’s necessary to go to the beach. I think the tourist region is the Bocas de Toro island, an archipelago so diverse and impressive that it is hard to describe in words or to explain why I like it so much. Each escapade on its various islands or even on the main island is an adventure. In Almirante leave the car parked in one of the special places and take one of the rides to Isla Colon, the main island in the archipelago. You will meet many locals on bicycles eager to help you leave your car and to find a boat. They don’t organize the rides they want tips but will help...

Why you need to book a ticket to Panama

After my Panama vacation, I received lots of questions on Facebook and promised I’ll do a post about my recent beautiful experience in this country and about my first trip there also. That was last year, in 2015. If Panama is on your travel list, hope this tips will help. As a first tip, it would be ideal if you visit the country at the end of May - beginning of June, for two reasons. Plane tickets are cheaper, from Bucharest with Turkish Airlines it is about 480 euro and with KLM 520 euros, and you avoid the rain season also. True, it is quite awesome to go during winter holidays but the tickets are quite expensive. Also, I recommend you rent...

#ViziteazaCovasna

Cand eram copil asteptam cu sufletul la gura vacanta, ca noi toti de altfel, iar unele dintre amintirile mele preferate sunt calatoriile  cu bunicii la Lacul Sfanta Ana & intalnirile cu ursii. In momentul in care am fost invitata sa redescopar Covasna alaturi de un grup fain de oameni, am zis da imediat. Bunataturi traditioanle, vestita palinca aromata in fel si chip, mofete, tot felul de tratemente si multe aventuri. Cam asa au trecut cele 3 zile intense in Covasna. Drumul de la Bucuresti la Sf. Gheorghe a fost un prilej bun sa imi cunosc mai bine colegii de aventura, iar dupa primul shot de palinca la Potio Nobilis am devenit prieteni instant. Pentru mine, care la 30 de ani am baut...

How to spend 7 amazing days in Tenerife – part3

How I learned SUP in Tenerife If in the other two post from this series I told you how I traveled the island by car & how I went to Masca, The Pirate Village, or how I admired a beautiful sunset on the Teide volcano, in today’s post I’ll tell about how I learned to SUP.  You’ll see immediately what’s that. After a few days of relaxation, in which I visited the island, I decided that two last days to be dedicated to water sports. So, we went to the largest water park from Tenerife, Siam Park, which has the most interesting attractions I ever tried. For example, a slide with a 28m drop, where you can go with 80km/h, and at the...
