You might remember that our first post on the blog was about last year’s Christmas. My boyfriend and I decided to spend the holidays with my brother so that’s how we first visited Amsterdam.
Last summer, as it often happens, we had no vacations plans whatsoever. After a lot of brainstorming, we decided that for late September Spain would be a good option.
Winter is coming, some may say, and I’m dreaming of white powder, high mountains, cool ski resorts, and large slopes.
I am not that winter fanatic as you may think. I’m not ashamed to admit, I don’t like winter and cold. I’d go for a sweltering day than a freezing cold winter. But the mountains landscape and the adrenaline rush you get on the slope it’s different. We have a few options for skiing in Romania, but in Europe, nothing compares to the Alps.
Warsaw, Poland is more than just a historic city. Second World War was harsh to them and the communist regime that came afterward is not an easy one to handle. Although scattered from the foundation, now Warsaw is a vivid and modern city. For a good background, check this documentary website. However, if you’re in Warsaw during summer time, go out of the Old Town and experience the usual city life. Polish people have a thing for deckchairs, ice-cream and beer, so my personal recommendation is to lie down and enjoy the life.
London is probably one of the most popular destinations in Europe. Even though one of the most expensive, and recently plagued by one too many terrorist attacks, it’s still a top destination. It might have to do with the historical touristic attractions, the culturally rich background or the hip vibe of “must-see” restaurants, cafes and markets. Whatever your interest, there’s lots to do and see in the UK capital.
I had never seen a bison in real life before. I didn’t even know the difference between a bison, a buffalo and the Romanian term “zimbru”. So if you’re in the same boat with me, you’ll understand my newly found fascination with this rare and beautiful creature.
