PLATIS GIALOS, A BEACH PARADISE

Post available in English and Romanian
Mykonos ofera multe plaje incantatoare, de la cele ascunse si mai putin frecventate, la cele luxoase, unde un sezlong pleaca de la 50 de euro in sus. Loc este pentru toata lumea, indiferent de gusturi si asteptari.

Noi am fost lenesi si din varietatea de plaje, printre plimbarile pe Delos sau in oras, am mers doar la plaja Platis Gialos, chiar langa hotelul nostru.

Mykonos offers many lovely beaches, from hidden gems, not over-crowded to luxurious ones, where you can get a sunbed for 50 euros and even more. There is a place for everyone, no matter the expectations.

We were lazy and between our walks in Mykonos Town and  Delos, we only visited the Platis Gialos beach located close to our hotel.

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.

RHODES, DAY 4

Post available in English and Romanian
Ziua a patra in Rodos a fost si cea mai activa pentru noi pana acum. Am vizitat cateva locuri incredibil de frumoase. Caldura a fost sufocanta, dar a meritat din plin. Din comoditate, am preferat sa nu mergem in excursie pe cont propriu. Am ales din oferta agentiei de turism care ne-a preluat aici, si acum pot sa spun ca am facut foarte bine. Nu a trebuit sa imi fac griji in legatura cu traseul, totul a fost foarte bine organizat, iar detaliile oferite de ghid pe traseu au fost chiar interesante. Our fourth day in Rhodes was also the most active. We’ve seen some truly amazing places. It was a very hot day, but it was worth it. Out of commodity, we did not organize the trip ourselves and we chose from the tour operator’s offer. Now I can say it was a good choice, we had no worries about the objectives and how to get to them, everything was very well organized and the stories told by our guide along the way were very informative and entertaining.

REWIEW: TRATTORIA BUONGIORNO

Post available in English and Romanian
Incet-incet descopar ca imi place foarte mult sa va scriu despre … mancare. Asta si pentru ca sunt gurmanda de cand ma stiu. Cu greu ma convingea mama in copilarie sa nu mananc toata ciocolata intr-o singura zi si sa pastrez si pentru restul saptamanii. Principiul e simplu: “Traieste clipa”. Ma bucur pe moment de ce am si daca nu imi ramane si pentru mai tarziu … pai atunci asta e. Macar am fost fericita mai devreme.

Sa trecem deci, la fapte. Saptamana trecuta mi-am delectat papilele gustative la Trattoria Buongiorno (de pe Lascar Catargiu).

Am incercat Ravioli rosso con Buratta in traducere libera: Ravioli proaspete, muguri de pin, smântână dulce, parmezan. Buuunnnn rau de tot, iar sosul de smantana a fost perfect, nu a ingreunat deloc preparatul.

I’m just realizing that I love to write for you about … food. It’s because I’ve been a food lover since I can remember. In my childhood, my mom could barely get me to save a piece of chocolate for the next day. It’s really easy actually: I prefer to live in the moment and enjoy what I have now. If I don’t save some for later … it’s not a loss. At least I was happy while it lasted.

Let’s get down to business. Last week I’ve delighted myself with some delicious food at Trattoria Buongiorno (located on Lascar Catargiu Street).

We’ve tried Ravioli Rosso con Burrata: Fresh ravioli, pine nuts, cream, parmesan. Reallyyyyy tasty. The cream sauce was just right, not heavy at all, just a delight with the rest of the ingredients.

REVIEW: DINING AT SAINT GEORGE, BUCHAREST

Post available in English and Romanian
Cand nu am timp sau bani sa calatoresc, imi place sa ma simt ca in vacanta in Bucurestiul meu. Asa ca la fiecare pas prin oras incerc sa gasesc frumusetea ascunsa a locurilor prin care trec. Ca sa nu ma plictisesc niciodata, imi place sa ies in locuri cat mai diverse, si sa incerc lucruri cat mai diferite. E valabil si atunci cand vine vorba de o cina in doi. Din cand in cand, mancarea gatita in casa nu e de ajuns, ai nevoie doar de un locusor linistit, unde sa bei ceva si sa mananci ceva bun. When I don’t have the time or money to travel, I like to take a moment and feel like I’m on vacation in my Bucharest. I try to find the hidden beauty of the city with every step I take. I don’t like to visit the same places every time, it would be boring, so I try to mix it up and try different things. This also counts when we’re planning a dinner out for two. From time to time homecooked meals are not enough, all you need is a quiet place to drink and eat something tasty.
