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?

JANUARY WINS AND FAILS

Post available in English and Romanian
Nu am fost niciodata fanul rezolutiilor de inceput de an: “Sa mananc mai sanatos”, “sa beau mai multa apa”, “sa fac sport” … stiti voi. Le prefer pe cele pe termen lung pe care de altfel le am scrise pe o lista pe care din cand in cand o si citesc, asa, ca sa imi reamintesc ce e important in viata. Cine stie, poate candva o sa o public si pe blog. Dar sa revenim la prima saptamana din ianuarie 2017, ca sa explic pe larg de ca nu imi plac rezolutiile de final sau de inceput de an, cum va place voua sa le ziceti.  Sa incepem cu cea mai dureroasa pentru mine: sa mananc mai putine dulciuri:

1 ianuarie: “Hmm deja ma simt mai sanatoasa!”

2 ianuarie: “Pfff e simplu; de ce nu m-am apucat mai devreme?”

3 ianuarie: Merg in vizita la soacra mea (care stie ca sunt mega super fan prajituri). Ma astepta cu doua tortui delicioase. Am mancat doua felii pe loc, plus una acasa dupa vreo 2 ore. Minunea n-a tinut nici 3 zile.

Hai sa incercam alta rezolutie: sa beau mai putin alcool. A nu se intelege ca de obicei beau pana cad sub masa, dar uneori depasesc limita de un pahar pe zi.

I’ve never been a fan of the new year resolutions: “Eat healthy”, “drink more water”, “exercise more” … you know. I prefer the long-term plans that I have written on a list which I read from time to time, to remind myself what’s important in life. Maybe I’ll share it with you someday on my blog. But let’s get back to the first week of 2017, so I can explain why I don’t do final year or new year resolutions, whatever you like to call them. Let’s start with the most painful subject for me: eat fewer sweets:

1st January: “Hmm, I already feel healthier”

2nd January: “Pfff, it’s easy, how come I didn’t do this sooner”

3rd January: We visited my mother in law (she knows I’m the biggest sweets fan ever). She was waiting for me with two delicious cakes. I’ve eaten two pieces in no time, and a third one later at home, a couple of hours later. The miracle didn’t even last for 3 days.

Let’s try another resolution: drink less alcohol. Please don’t get me wrong, I don’t drink my mind every day, but sometimes I exceed the one glass a day limit.
