The World Bees Day !

Maybe not all of you know, but 20 May is the world day of the bees. So I wanted to dedicate this lines to them as I am very grateful they exist. I also wish that they continue to live in Europe and beyond; without them we wouldn’t have many vegetables, flowers and fruits.

I would hope that you will read this and that, maybe, you can do something for them; it takes 10 minutes to plant a small flower in a pot in your balcony, the yellow ones are attracting most of the bees. Or you can also buy a pot of good honey from your local producers; yes, I know it is more expensive but you are doing so much with a bit of extra money – help your health with some good quality honey, help the local honey producers and, most of all, help the bees in your region live, work and survive. And, through this, you also help your family, friends to have a healthier life. 

Also, use with trust all their products to improve and maintain your immunity and health (pollen, honey, mother bee milk, beeswax); for who has babies, remember that you can also mix in their meals, starting from 12 months/ 1 year old, pollen or honey.

You have here lots of information about the bees in different countries:

I hope that these can give you some nice ideas or just some new knowledge about our friends, the bees. I hope they will be much better from now on and that they continue to help us staying healthy and enjoy the fruit of their work – the perfumed & golden liquid that has been the center of human activities since immemorial times. And yes, please use no chemicals in your daily activities to keep also our air & water healthy; thank you everyone !

Alvaro Soler en Luxemburgo

Es tarde pero queria escribir estas palabras antes de dormir.

Hemos tenido aqui hoy (14 mayo) Alvaro Soler para su primer concierto en este pequeno ducado. Como mi cumpleanos fue hacen unos dias, el tickete para este concierto es el regalo de la parte de mi novio y fue uno muy muy bonito.

Recordandome un poco de Ricky Martin y con una energia de comunicar con el publio tipica espanola, este chico es un artista muy talentoso y sincero! Me ha encantado de verdad. Alvaro S foto

Tengo mucho mas que compartir con vosotros pero tengo que dormir; quiso ser la primera persona que escribe sobre este concierto en Luxemburgo…y creo que lo soy!

Espero tambien escribir esto en otra lengua y completar tambien con un video para enviarles tambien un poco de este amor musical compartido y de la belleza de este primer encuentro con senor Alvaro.

Gracias para tu presencia en nuestra pequena ciudad y para tu energia latina de esta noche, Alvaro! Espero mucho volver a verte por aqui 🙂

Colourful Spring in Luxemburg

primavara in Luxi

00004440[1]

Hello everyone! I do not know which is your favourite season but mine is spring. It is the most precious moment of Mother Nature, in my opinion and we are never probably more spoiled by the Planet than during these months.

As Luxembourg has different landscapes than other cities where I lived, spring is settling a bit more slowly and lasts a bit longer which makes me happy as I can enjoy even more this time of the year.

I hope these photos will bring a bit of spring energy into your life and a bit of joy. I hope this spring will also be a starting point for you – to give more time and attention to your physical & emotional health, to your lifestyle, to your sleeping habits, to your nutrition and sport activities. It is well-known that everything the Nature has created can have a very positive effect on our health (seaside areas, forests, mountain regions, riversides) and these are simple things all of us can do constantly.

Look around and receive the spring magic in your lives – herbs, flowers, teas, salads, fresh air, landscapes, sunshine and everything else you like. Have a wonderful spring!

Salutare tuturor! Iata ca din nou simt nevoia sa scriu cate ceva despre primavara, anotimpul meu preferat. Asociez si ceva poze realizate de mine in micul Luxemburg ca sa va ofer putina relaxare primavaratica si voua. Sunt multe motive pentru care puteti profita de primavara- un nou inceput si schimbari pozitive in ce priveste sanatatea voastra fizica, sanatatea voastra emotionala, stilul de viata, nutritia, stilul de somn, activitatile sportive si asa mai departe. Sper sa gasiti inspiratie in tot ce va inconjoara si sa va imbunatatiti stilul de viata in fiecare primavara cate putin saptamana de saptamana. 

Priviti in jur si adoptati tot ce va pare interesant – ierburi, flori, ceaiuri, salate, aerul curat, peisaje, caldura soarelui si orice va inspira. Sper sa profitati din plin de aceasta primavara si de beneficiile naturii, oriunde ati locui. Sunt sigura ca in orice loc puteti gasi idei creative si modalitati sanatoase de a face constant ceva bun pentru sanatatea si sufletul vostru. In final, acestea conteaza cel mai mult, reprezentand baza unei vieti implinite si fericite.

Sper sa revin cu un articol similar cu poze infatisand frumoasele primaveri de acasa, din Romania, pentru ca de poze nu duc lipsa 🙂

O primavara frumoasa si sanatoasa tuturor!

 

Martisorul romanesc zboara catre primavara! The Romanian Martisor is flying towards spring!

Martisorul din nou! Stiu ca am mai scris despre el insa sper sa nu va suparati. M-a distrat mereu orice traditie romaneasca simpatica, mai ales daca este si aducatoare de energii pozitive.

Pe langa Martisor, mereu m-a distrat si anecdotele cu Babele, aduse in discutie de bunica mea trasnita, inca din copilaria mea in Bucuresti. De aceea, mereu pe 28 februarie imi aleg baba si astept sa vad daca am parte de soare!

Martisoarele au adus mereu o raza de soare la inceputul primaverii si nu numai pentru noi dar si pentru altii, aproape de noi, fie ei bulgari, moldoveni, polonezi. Rosul este din vechime asociat in multe culturi diferite ale lumii cu fericirea, dragostea, viata si este prezent si in cultura noastra la martisoare si nu numai.

Va urez o primavara frumoasa si plina de fericire !!  🙂

 

This post is about a nice tradition we have at home – the Martisor. It is usually offered to women on the 1st of March but, some people also offer it to men who wear the red&white thread.  This tradition is also present in other Eastern European countries and is considered to bring, through this little symbol, health and love to the person receiving this Martisor.

I wish all of you a great spring with top health and lots of happiness! 🙂

P.S. Informatii preluate de pe      http://luxemburg.mae.ro/romania-news/7644

‘Comitetul Interguvernamental al UNESCO pentru Salvgardarea Patrimoniului Cultural Imaterial a votat, la 6 decembrie 2017, înscrierea Practicilor culturale asociate zilei de 1 Martie (Mărțişorul) – dosar multinațional coordonat de România și elaborat împreună cu Republica Moldova, Macedonia de Nord și Republica Bulgaria – în Lista Reprezentativă a Patrimoniului Cultural Imaterial al Umanității. Reuniunea a avut loc la Jeju (Republica Coreea), în perioada 4-9 decembrie 2017.’ Felicitari Romaniei, Moldovei, Bulgariei si Macedoniei pentru aceasta reusita!!

In this small paragraph I am copying some news found on the website of the Romanian Foreign Affairs Ministry; the UNESCO Cultural Heritage Commitee voted at the end of 2017 the registration of the ‘Martisor-1st of March’ cultural tradition (file coordinated by Romania together with the Republic of Moldova, Bulgaria and Northern Macedonia) in the Representative List of the Immaterial Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Congratulations to Romania and all the other countries for this amazing success!

Good-bye Luke Perry…

BH90210 great souvenirs

It is with sadness that I heard what happened to Luke Perry…as I was sure he would get over this AVC.., at least him as my grandma died of the same thing..I was shocked to hear that at his age, he got so seriously ill…Especially because he had always been an amazing guy and a sensitive and talented actor.

For years on, I watched the Beverly H 90210 and it was making my day, testing my English level and having fun with all the characters in the series. And I liked each and everyone of them, my favourite being Jennie Eve Garth. But the most important is that all of them taught me how important friendship is and that, at the end of the day, no matter how good or bad things can be, it is amazing to know you can count on someone, on a good friend..or, even better, on good friends.

So, I do not wish to say good-bye to Luke Perry as it feels sad to lose these amazing memories I have of my first youth-years, I just hope his remaining family will remember and keep his heritage going, for his sake and for our sake. I hope his children appreciate what they have received from him as a father and his current and former partners the happy times they had together as well as his parents&brother who for sure will miss him.

May God Rest Your Soul in Peace, dear friend Luke!

 

And a little song for you:

 

Tennis beauty and success in Fedcup for the Romanian girls!

 

And they did it again!!! Our amazing tennis girls under the winning charm of Simona Halep have managed to defeat a strong Czech tennis team, making a whole country and all the Romanians everywhere extra-happy! I could not even see the matches as nobody seems interested in offering the tennis fans such matches (no tv channel, no online website…) which made me feel dissapointed whereas for football everyone is broadcasting every stupid match everywhere….  Even in these hard conditions 🙂 my heart kept on beating for these girls and their whole effort & work have given them this amazing result! Let’s not forget that the Czech Republic has been the winner of the past six editions of the Fed Cup. 

Simona was in her usual good shape and together with the other players they re-created a golden Romanian team; I thus congratulate all of them Monica N, Irina-Camelia B, Mihaela B & the lady-bug of the team, Simona H for this excellent result and for their entire work during this Fed Cup winter matches, capitalised on the 10th of February with the final result of their encounter with the Czech tennis team.

The team spirit of the girls and a bit of Romanian magic was the plus they needed against a difficult team; I am proud of them and also try to keep tennis in my life and play as often as I have the chance. Well done, girls and keep up this energy for the whole year!
