REVIEW: HIPOTELS MEDITERRANEO

Post available in English and Romanian
In vacanta din Sa Coma am stat la Hipotels Medieteraneo, un hotel minunat doar pentru adulti, clasat la patru stele. Gazdele noastre s-au asigurat ca totul e perfect si ne simtim ca acasa.
Hotelul e urias – are 397 camere si pana sa ajungem eram sigura ca va fi o experienta cam impersonala, avand in vedere cati oameni sunt cazati. Si cat de tare m-am inselat … de cand am ajuns la check in, stafful a fost atent la nevoile noastre si interactiunea cu ei a fost extrem de placuta. Recomand o camera cu vedere la mare si cum o poza face cat 1000 de cuvinte o sa las peisajul sa vorbeasca.
While I was vacationing in Sa Coma, I stayed at Hipotels Mediterraneo, a wonderful adults-only hotel, rated at four stars. They made sure our stay is perfect and feels like at home.
The hotel is huge – it features 397 rooms and I was sure prior to arriving that the experience was gonna be a bit impersonal, considering how many people they have to tend to. Boy was I wrong … since the moment we arrived at the reception for the check-in the staff was incredibly warm, inviting and helpful. I do recommend a sea view room and since a picture is worth 1000 words I’ll let the view speak for itself.

ONE DAY IN PALMA DE MALLORCA

Post available in English and Romanian
E pacat sa zbori pana in Mallorca si sa nu vizitezi si capitala orasului, Palma de Mallorca. O sa descoperiti un oras vibrant, care are o poveste de spus la fiecare colt. Turisti curiosi bat strazile in lung si in lat un cautarea unui loc trendy ca sa manance sau sa bea ceva, sau cauta cele mai apropiate plaje. Localnicii sunt obisnuiti cu furnicarul din sezon si isi fac linistiti drum spre munca sau pe unde au ei drum pe strazile aglomerate din Palma de Mallorca.

Noi am facut o vizita de o zi in acest frumos oras, care are atat de multe de oferit incat nu am reusit sa ajungem peste tot, dar iata care sunt cele mai importate obiective turistice.

It’s a shame to fly to Mallorca and not pay a visit to the island’s capital city, Palma de Mallorca. You’ll discover a vibrant city, with pieces of history hidden at every corner. Curious tourists are roaming the streets in search of a trendy place to eat or have a drink or looking for the best beach to get a nice tan. The locals are already used with the seasonal visitors and are heading peacefully to work or they are running errands on the busy streets of Palma. 

We dedicated a day to visit this beautiful city, and while it has so many to offer, here are a few things that you should not miss if you are planning a short visit to Palma de Mallorca.

MALLORCA SUMMER TRIP

Post available in English and Romanian
Frumoasa insula Mallorca are doua parti; este in primul rand faimoasa printre calatorii tineri pentru viata de noapte si petrecerile memorabile care au loc pe aceasta insula din Spania. Multi nu stiu asta, insa pe insula exista si statiuni mai linistite, pentru lenesii care vor sa petreaca zile intregi bucurandu-se de plaja si de nisipul fin sau vizitand cateva dintre cele mai cunoscute obiective. Magaluf a fost prima noastra alegere, insa dupa o jumatate de an mai stresanta ne-am razgandit in ultimul moment si am rezervat un hotel localizat in partea mai linistita a insulei, pentru ca am vrut sa stam doar la plaja si sa ne incarcam bateriile. Desigur, cum noi suntem calatori activi si foarte curiosi, nu am prea reusit sa ne indeplinim obiectivul initial. Am renuntat de cateva ori la plaja ca sa exploram insula pe cont propriu. Si nu am regretat aceasta decizie nici macar un moment. The beautiful island of Mallorca has two sides; the most famous one is very well known by young travelers, that go there to party all night long and enjoy the crazy nightlife offered by the Spanish island. Many people don’t know it, but this island also offers a few peaceful retreats, for the ones that want to enjoy the sun and sandy beaches and spend lazy days relaxing or visiting the most famous objectives. Magaluf was our first choice, but after a stressful half of year, we changed our minds last minute and booked a hotel on the “quiet” part of the island, as we wanted to chill out on the beach and recharge our batteries. Of course, being the curious and active travelers that we are, we could not stay put and we left the beach behind a few times to explore what the island has to offer. And we never regretted this decision.

A PIECE OF SPAIN IN BUCHAREST

I recently visited the second Alioli location and found out you can feel in vacation even in your own city 🙂

A moment with me

english version below

Review: Alioli, Bucharest

Iubesc mancarea din Spania, asa ca oricand poftesc la ceva dau fuga cu drag la Alioli. Au un meniu minunat si multe bauturi aduse direct din Spania. Daca nu stiti ce sa alegeti, atunci eu va recomand Paella (cu carne, fara sau cu fructe de mare) nu aveti cum sa dati gres.

Cea mai recenta vizita a fost la a doua locatie deschisa de Alioli in Bucuresti: La Finca. In Spania, “finca” este o proprietate rurala, o ferma am putea spune, iar cei de la Alioli reusesc sa te scoata din jungla urbana din Bucuresti … pana si ospatarii sunt din peisajul suta la suta latin: calzi, amabili si glumeti.

Am ajuns acolo direct de la birou, cu pofta de mancare din plin, asa ca aperitivele au disparut instantaneu, fara sa mai am timp sa vi le arat. O portie delicioasa de jamon, insotita…

MI MADRID

Post available in English and Romanian
 Ma intorc la tine iar si iar … Madrid drag. Capitala Spaniei e singurul oras dintre cele multe pe care le-am vizitat care m-a convins sa ma intorc mereu si mereu. Glumind putin, as putea spune ca e ca o a doua casa. De data aceasta scopul vizitei a fost unul special; meciul din Champions League dintre Real Madrid si Borussia Dortmund. S-a terminat 2-2 si Realul a terminat abia a doua grupa ei, dar nu e motiv de suparare, a fost spectacol atat pe teren cat si in tribuna. Pentru prima data la Madrid am luat parte la coregrafia organizata de suporteri. Sa va mai spun ca deja imi e dor de Madrid? Cam asa s-au vazut din tribuna incalzirea jucatorilor, coregrafia Realului si bucura baietilor in alb dupa cele doua goluri. I come back to Madrid again and again. The Spanish capital is the only city from the many I’ve visited that “tricked” me into coming back. I could almost say it’s my second home. This time, I had a specific purpose: the Champions League game between Real and Borussia Dortmund. The final score was 2-2 and Real Madrid finished second, but it was no reason to be upset, the match was spectacular on the field and in the stands. For the first time ever, I was part of the Real Madrid choreography. Need I mention that I ‘m already missing Madrid? This is how I’ve seen from the stands the player’s pre-match training session, the choreography and the joy after the home team’s goals.

AMINTIRI DE LA EL CLASICO / EL CLASICO MEMORIES

Post available in English and Romanian
Sunt printre norocosii care au asistat, chiar de doua ori, la cel mai spectaculos meci de fotbal al zilelor noastre (cel putin pentru mine) El Clasico: Real Madrid – Barcelona. Nu am avut norocul sa prind live si o victorie a Realului pe Bernabeu (un meci s-a terminat 1-1 si celalalt1-3), dar a meritat pentru sentimentul de a vedea cele doua echipe jucand si pentru atmosfera fantastica. Voi ce pronostic aveti pentru meciul de azi? I’m one of the lucky people that saw twice the most spectacular football match of our days (at least from my point of view) El Clasico: Real Madrid – Barcelona. I wasn’t lucky enough to witness a Madrid victory on Santiago Bernabeu (one match ended 1-1 and the other 1-3), but it was totally worth it; the feeling of watching the two teams play and hearing the crowd chanting was amazing. What’s your prediction for today’s match?
