REVIEW: PAINE SI VIN

Post available in English and Romanian
Pentru mine mancarea este una dinte micile placeri ale vietii si intotdeauna ma bucur atunci cand gasesc in Bucuresti un loc special, care ma face sa imi doresc sa revin din nou si din nou ca sa incerc gusturi speciale. E fix ceea ce mi s-a intamplat cu Paine si Vin. Food has always been one of life’s small pleasures for me, this is why I am always happy when I discover great places in Bucharest, making me want to go back again and again for a delicious bite. Here’s my recent experience at Paine si vin.

DREAMING OF MADRID

Pentru ca intr-o zi in care iarna a revenit in forta si ne tine in case nu ne ramane decat sa visam, hai sa dam frau liber imaginatiei:

Madrid e cu siguranta orasul care mi-a ramas si imi va ramane in suflet. Aici sunt ca acasa, deja nu mai am nevoie de harti si de indicatii si de mult nu mai arat ca un turist ratacit pe strazi atunci cand il vizitez.

Care este orasul vostru preferat? Acela pe care l-ati vizita de nenumarate ori sau in care visati sa va mutati candva?

Because winter is here in full force and it’s keeping us locked in, all we can do right now is dream.  Let your imagination run wild for a moment:

Madrid is definitely the city that is and will stay forever in my soul. Here I feel right at home, and I no longer need maps and directions, I no longer look like a tourist lost on the streets when I visit this amazing city.

What is your favorite city? The one that you would return to any day, the one that you dream to live in someday?

 

FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATIONS

Post available in English and Romanian
Cu totii avem locurile noastre speciale, care ne-au ramas in minte mult timp dupa ce le-am vizitat. Cam asa arata harta calatoriilor mele si desi inca mai am multe destinatii de bifat, pot spune ca sunt multumita ca am ajuns in atatea locuri frumoase.

Sper ca incet incet sa imi fac timp sa scriu despre fiecare loc in parte, pentu ca mai sunt multe povesti frumoase de spus.

We all have our special places, that stuck with us even if a lot of time has passed since the last visit there. This is how my travel map looks like, and even if I still have many destinations on my bucket list, I am very happy that I was able to travel to these beautiful places.

I hope to be able to write about all these places because there are still so many interesting stories to be told.

WONDERS OF RHODES

Post available in English and Romanian
Cu siguranta toata lumea asociaza Rodosul cu legenda celebrului colos care a fost ridicat aici in antichitate. Impunatoarea statuie a fost distrusa de un cutremur, iar astazi nici macar locatia exacta nu i se cunoaste. Recent s-ar fi descoperit dovezi cum ca statuia a fost ridicata pe un deal in apropiera Rodusului – unde acum puteti vizita stadionul, amfiteatrul si ruinele templului lui Apollo. Insa alte teorii sustin ca aceasta a fost ridicata in port. In amintirea legendei, pe locul in care se prepupune ca a fost ridicat Colosul acum stau doua statui – un cerb si o ciuta. Legenda colosului a fascinat insa intregi generatii – a inspirat celebra statuie a libertatii si producatorii Game of Thrones au creeat Titanul din Braavos dupa chipul si asemanarea Colosului din Rodos. Se vorbeste despre un proiect prin care un nou colos ar putea sa ia nastere in Rodos, insa mai e cale lunga pana acolo. I’m pretty sure that when people think Rhodes, they automatically associate the island with the legend of the Colossus, the statue that stood here in ancient times. It was destroyed by an earthquake, and today we don’t even know the exact location. Recently, some excavations place the statue on a hill, next to Rhodes City, where you can now visit the stadium, theatre and the temple of Apollo. Other theories claim that the statue was located in the harbor. Here two statues remind us of the possible location – a buck and a deer. The Colossus legend fascinated entire generations – it even inspired the famous statue of liberty, and the producers of Game of Thornes created the Braavos Titan after the legendary statue from Rhodes. There’s talk of a new colossus in Rhodes, but it looks like there’s a long way to go.

SUMMER MEMORIES

When you wonder on the roads of Rhodes, you never know what you can encounter.

STEP INTO HISTORY

Post available in English and Romanian
In primele mele zile in Rodos nu mai stiam unde sa ma uit; stanga-dreapta numai minuni ale lumii antice, cladiri care parca au inghetat in timp si te transporta in alta era. Marea de un albastru superb prezenta si ea mereu in peisaj, iar deasupra cerul de un albastru incredibil, pentru ca in Rodos vara nu ploua decat foarte rar (asta ca sa nu ma hazardez si sa spun niciodata). Si da, chiar si atunci cand te uiti in jos aici ai ce admira. La fiecare pas pasesti pe mozaicuri superbe, din pietre de mare, care nu iti incanta numai privirea, ci iti ofera si un masaj la talpi. Nu va incaltati cu tocuri sau pantofi cu talpa subtire, veti avea nevoie de pantofi cu talpa mai groasa pentru plimbarile pe aleile vechi.

Dupa cum vedeti, niciun mozaic nu seamana cu celalat, iar eu nu am capturat decat o mica parte.

During my first days in Rhodes I didn’t know where to look first; to my left and my right, wonders of the ancient world, buildings that looked frozen in time and made me feel like a time – traveler. The gorgeous blue sea was always in the picture, and above I could always see an incredible sky because it barely rains during the summer in Rhodes (to be more accurate, it never rains). And yes, even when you look down you will be amazed. With each step, there are beautiful mosaics, crafted out of sea stones, which not only are a sight for the eyes, they also offer a foot massage. Don’t wear heels or light shoes, you’ll need a thicker sole to walk the old streets.

As you can see, no mosaic looks like the others, and I only managed to capture a few of them.
