Happy Days !

IMG_0246A nice snapshot from Porto, during my trip of last year. A joyful street in the centre with some nice decoration paper balls creating a happy corner. I hope it brings all of you a big smile!

Un moment placut in Porto, din timpul vacantei de anul trecut. O strada micuta si vesela in centru cu niste lampioane colorate care creau o atmosfera vesela si varatica. Sper sa va aduca un zambet vesel!

A nice place of Romania Delta Dunarii

This is an amazing place of Romania, called the Danube Delta, in the south-eastern part. It is the moment when the birds are coming back, in spring. The landscape and vegetation are unique in the country and it is beautiful to see the river Danube flowing into the Black Sea. Sorry, the photo is not clear, but I hope some details can be perceived.

Dreaming of Summer

Thassos islandMaybe you are also often dreaming of summer, more often in winter…or maybe not.  I think it is not only the craziness of seaside/ocean coast holidays or the obsession to get a sexy tan that is important. I guess that the unique summer spirit is that one we have when we hear seagulls fly over our heads, when that amazing Italian ice-cream from Matera is melting on our nose..or when that summer smile of a girl/boy we like is closer than we imagined… I think Summer is a state of mind, is a love for nature in its peak beauty, a stronger desire to connect with everything around or just a magical sensation that we are eternal, be it only for three months, if we count time from the Terra point of view. Otherwise, Einstein is right – Time is an illusion. But Summer no, it has never been an illusion; it is just the personification of our most joyful dreams. The photo is mine and I leave it to you to guess where I have taken it 🙂   Happy Daydreaming !

Poate si dvs. visati cu ochii deschisi la vara, mai des in timpul sezonului rece…sau poate nu. Eu cred ca nu este vorba neaparat de nebunia vacantelor la mare/pe coasta oceanului sau obsesia noastra de a ne bronza in fiecare vara. Eu simt ca acel spirit unic de vara este acela cand auzim pescarusii zburand deasupra noastra (chiar si in Bucuresti, ce noroc avem! ), sau cand acea inghetata perfecta din Matera (credeti-ma pe cuvant) se topeste pe nasul nostru…sau cand zambetul unei persoane care ne place mult este mai aproape decat ne-am imaginat…Cred ca Vara este o stare de spirit, este dragoste pentru natura in toata splendoarea ei, o dorinta puternica de a ne conecta cu tot ce este in jurul nostru, este magica senzatie de a ne simti nemuritori, fie si doar pentru trei luni, daca luam in considerare timpul Pamantului. Altfel, Einstein are dreptate- Timpul este o iluzie. Insa Vara nu, nu a fost niciodata o iluzie, este doar personificarea viselor noastre. Poza am facut-o undeva, langa o mare si va las sa ghiciti unde 🙂 Visati cu ochii deschisi!

the perfect dedication (sorry, it’s in Romanian, but it’s amazing) – is about the funny story of a guy who works like all of us in an office every week and is tired of the city-life…So he proposes to his friends&everyone to move at the seaside, coming up with funny ideas 🙂
