RELAXED MOMENTS AT HOME

Post available in English and Romanian

Calatoriile imi lipsesc cel mai mult in vremurile acestea de pandemie. Imi e dor sa urc in avion si sa decolez spre o destinatie noua, in care sa explorez, sa vad locuri noi si sa cunosc alti oameni. Pentru moment am ales sa nu imi asum riscuri si sa raman acasa. Asta nu inseama ca nu pot sa explorez orasul meu, cu locurile lui frumoase si primitoare. Asa am petrecut o dimneata frumoasa prin Bucuresti. A fost cald, insorit si destul de relaxant incat sa ma simt ca intr-un tinut magic. Am inceput cu o plimbare in parc.

Travelling is what I’ve been missing most during this pandemic. I miss embarking on a plane and taking off to a new destination, exploring and discovering new places and people. It’s my choice for the moment to stay put and avoid taking any risks. But this does not mean that I cannot explore my own city with its beautiful and welcoming places. It is how I’ve spent a lovely morning out and about in Bucharest. It was sunny, warm, and relaxing enough to transport me to a magical land. I started with a walk in the park.

SUMMER WILL COME … SOMEDAY

Post available in English and Romanian
Daca ar fi sa am un motto in Urzeala Tronurilor, as adapta zicala familiei Stark: “Vine iarna!”. Mie nu imi place iarna, prefer sa raman copilul verii.

Tocmai de asta sunt convinsa ca marea nu e facuta sa fie vazuta doar vara, o poti admira chiar si intr-o zi de noiembrie. Acum arata parca si mai frumoasa, cu malurile ei pustii si linistite, dar infuriata de vantul care bate inspre tarm. Trag aer adanc in piept si aproape ca simt sarat pe varful limbii. Stau aici, ma linistesc pret de cateva clipe … apoi plec mai departe, cu gandurile mele. Parca “galagia” din mintea mea se reduce de fiecare data cand ajung la mare. Nu pot sa stau prea mult … e prea rece cu mine acum, dar nu o las singura, pescarusii vor fi alaturi de ea, indiferent de anotimp. Stie si marea, la fel de bine ca mine, ca intr-un final … vine vara!

If I were to have a motto in Game of Thrones, I’d adapt the famous Stark words: “Winter is coming”. I don’t like winter, I’d rather be a summer child.

It’s the reason why I’m convinced that the sea is not made to be seen only during the summer time, it can be admired even on a November day. She’s even more beautiful, with empty and quiet shores, but infuriated by the wind beating toward the seaside. I take a deep breath and I can almost taste the salt on my tongue. I stay here, in a tranquil state for a few moments … then I move on, with my thoughts. It’s funny how the “noise” in my head dims every time I stand here. I can’t stay for long … she’s cold with me now, but I’m not leaving her alone, the seagulls are always here, no matter the season. The sea knows as well as I do that in the end … summer is coming!

SO QUIET …

Toți avem nevoie din cand in cand de un moment de linste. Eu ma relaxez cel mai bine in natura, departe de zgomotele orasului, dar nu prea multa vreme pentru ca mi se face dor repede de nebunia din Bucuresti. Voi unde fugiti atunci cand vreti o clipa de liniste? We all need some peaceful moments from time to time. I like to relax outdoors, away from the city craziness, but not for long because I quickly start to miss Bucharest. Where do you run for a moment of silence?

JUST BREATHE

Se mai intampla sa ai momente in care simti ca toate belelele din viata te apasa. Poate crezi ca nu o sa gasesti niciodata o rezolvare … toti ne blocam asa din cand in cand. Pentru astfel de clipe, eu recomand o solutie destul de simpla: fuga in natura.

Cel putin o zi cu soare, relaxare si cateva momente doar cu tine si cerul deasupra. Cam asa a fost ultimul meu weekend. Cu bune si cu rele, am incercat sa absorb doar partea frumoasa a lucrurilor.

There are times when you feel like you are surrounded by all the bad things in the world. You may think you’ll never find a solution for all your problems … we all get stuck in a moment from time to time. For moments like this, I have a simple solution: return to nature.
At least one sunny day, relaxation and a few moments alone with yourself and the sky above. This was my weekend summed up in a short blog post. With good and bad moments, I tried to retain only the good side of things.

 

BUCHAREST, A MOMENT IN TIME

Post available in English and Romanian
Vazut din unghiul potrivit, la momentul potrivit, orice oras iti poate oferi o priveliste speciala, de neuitat. Cam asa arata Bucurestiul de la inaltime, intr-o zi calda si insorita. Observed from the right angle, at the right time, any city can offer a special and unforgettable view. This is how Bucharest looks like from above, during a warm and sunny day.
