I’ve been busy as a bee, but that didn’t discourage me to continue my travel diary to Rome. What is Rome without visiting Vatican? Well…almost nothing because you will be highly fascinated by this city. I must emphasize that the effort to get there is huge, but worthy and you need at least half of the day for that. We queued for 2 hours to see ‘Basilica de San Pedro‘ , but I swear that the first impression was overwhelming.
When in Rome…
Have you seen that romantic movie ‘ When in Rome’? Unfortunately, I didn’t go there to live such a story, considering the absence of my boyfriend, but to discover this beautiful capital being accompanied by my Polish friend.
When I travel abroad, I usually try to get to know the overall and then I start digging into specific areas. Therefore, the same I did with Rome. Even though we arrived late,that didn’t stop us to explore the antique capital.
1st stop: Colosseum. We took the metro to Colosseum, where we were overwhelmed of its immensity once we got there. Obviously, the Morrocans couldn’t from there by selling different cheap souvenirs, including selfie sticks.
2nd stop Then, we went by foot beyond the Tiber to Trastevere, a charming Read more
Color Run Aarhus wasn’t my first experience with this non-toxic colored powder. In fact, I had been through this before, but this time was twice crazier. Why crazier? In general, because of the people and the weather conditions. Yeah, living in Denmark always comes down to weather, when finding excuses or describing situations.
Since the first race in 2012, The Color Run exploded across the globe. From more than 50 events and 600,000 participants in 2012 to over 100 events and more than 1 million participants in 2014. However, I wanted to join this event, as soon as I’ve heard about it. I’ve tried to convince more people from Horsens, in order to go as a team and obtain a good discount as well. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen because of different priorities and mainly the discouraging weather. When I started to have second thoughts of selling my ticked, I finally convinced a friend to join me and to run for 5 km. Besides, worrying about parking place and arriving late, everything went great. As soon as we got there, Read more
After spending 2 weeks again in my home country with my beloved ones and FINALLY deciding which smartphone to purchase ( it took me 5 months to figure out that HTC Desire EYE is the one for me) , my parents and I went on a trip to an unexplored country: Sweden. We or better said I started off on the wrong foot by breaking 2 pretty valuable Swedish kronas notes . Getting lost, being additionally charged for food that we didn’t order, sharing Romanian delicatessen with hotel’s receptionists at 2 am are some of the adventures we ran into. Oh, we booked one night at an amazing boat hotel Read more
Hello, mid-March! If you excuse me, I’ll go back in time, to the cold season. So, take a cup of tea, which will warm your hands while going through these pictures mostly taken in Poiana Brasov, where my boyfriend and I had an adventurous city break. After numerous phone calls to different hotels, we decided on Hotel Ruia, because it was the only one close, with jacuzzi and not very pricey. We were extremely excited about skiing in Poiana Brasov, mainly because it’s considered to be the best place for winter sports and I never been there. Shame on me! I must outline that I was more than impressed of what Poiana Brasov can offer and now I understand why there were so many foreigners. We were highly excited for skiing, especially that I haven’t practised it for 7 years. I was last time skiing in Villach, Austria.
Anyways, it was a challenge both for me and my boyfriend, to whom I am very thankful for his unlimited patience.
What happened on the ski slope is pure history. Do you know that motivational saying ‘ Fall 7 times, stand up 8’? That’s exactly what I did there, until Read more
Valletta is one of the best preserved fortified cities and the smallest capital in the EU. It is situated between 2 deep harbours and Valletta’s buildings date from 16th century. Unfortunately, the air raids from the Second World War had a huge impact on this capital.
Tourism and trade play a vital role for Maltese people and that’s why there are many events organized every weekend. During the day, the city is full of life and many anonymous artists are trying to entertain people who are passing by.
Nevertheless, the capital of Malta is truly romantic by offering Read more
Opting for Malta is due either to its beaches and bays either the tangled history.
It was too sunny not to sunbathe and plenty of sandy, stony beaches were waiting for us. I was already getting tired of St Julian’s beach so we had finally picked St. Paul’s Bay, but we started off on the wrong foot. We took the correct bus number, but it was heading right in the opposite way. Arriving in Sliema was both good and bad. Before going to check the shops, we gathered info about one day cruise to Blue Lagoon and Gozo, which are a must to visit. We got a pretty good deal for 60 euros of 2 tickets + another one as a bonus with tour harbours from Michael. Later, I will tell you where the bad part occurred. Despite of the sunny weather, we decided to spend few ‘minutes’ in shops. After Sliema left us almost broke, we took the challenge further and instead of stopping at the right bus stop in St. Paul, we continued. Looking on the map, my hope was back.
‘ We have 3 more beaches ahead: Mellieha, the closest one then, Armier and Golden Bay.’
We were way too tired, impatient and hungry to make it to Golden Bay, because we spent an hour in bus.
By the time we got there, we had desperately to find a place tohave lunch. Baia Beach Club looked very appealing and in fact, we didn’t have another option. We both had a good meal of sea food pasta or chicken breast with mushroom sauce. In spite of being hungry, we didn’t care too much about that because the view was astounding.
‘We need to take a photo together!’
Problem solved. ‘ Sorry can you take 1-2-3…photos of us?It’s not difficult. Don’t get scared of the camera. Thank you’
Don’t expect to find professional photos of me from this trip. Dragos isn’t trained yet in what the art of photography, concernes
Eh, he looks like he just jumped from one of those 2 boats. Haha
The sun was too kind with us , so we ended in falling asleep on the beach to realize that it was getting dark and empty. We crossed the street to wait for the bus, but nothing was coming. We started to freak out or I should stick only to my mood, because Dragos was calm as never. Then, we were thinking of the other options: rent a car, call a taxi, hitch-hiking or the best of the best sleep on the beach. I was somehow excited for another adventurous experience but on the same time I was dreaming on a warm shower and dinner. Suddenly, a bus was getting closer and closer to us, but meanwhile I was desperately waving to the driver, he didn’t even glance. That bus was too full. We were almost hopeless and my stressing mood was slowly affecting my boyfriend too. Luckily, after 20 minutes another bus came that was actually in the last shift, so we were close enough to sleep there, somewhere.
I went from staring at these four walls for 21 years

On my birthday, I had everything I could wish for: a delicate long dress, which perfectly matched my goddess necklace,my beloved parents, a tour with submarine and the biggest fulfilment happened thanks to a dinner by the sea. Read more
You may think of the 4 th of July as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence, but allow me to add something more special such as my birthday. Moreover, I became legal anywhere in the world, so I celebrated the day in a really nice manner: a barbecue at the pool with my parents and few clubs later on, where they also joined me. Wearing that swimsuit wasn’t just an occurrence Read more
We planned a one day cruise on the 2nd day of July, as the sky was bright and the sun was prepared to burn my skin. The ticket costed only 17 euros, because we got a small discount of 8 euros, which didn’t bother us at all, considering that other agencies were offering the same package at higher prices. We had the pleasure to do some sightseeing in many places such as: Tivat, Herceg Novi, Zanjice, The lady of the rocks, Kotor and back to Tivat. Mostly all of them Read more
Another advantage of spending the holiday in Budva is that you can make a city break in Dubrovnik, Croatia. As the weather was a bit cloudy, my parents and I decided to visit Dubrovnik. I strongly believe that the best memories are made spontaneously. That’s why, we got lost on a narrow street, while we were searching the right way to Dubrovnik, but the view was indescribable. We had found a magical place, near the Lady of the Rocks and two nice guys, who explained that we have to take the ferryboat. The price for one way is 5 euros. We were again surrounded by overwhelming landscapes, Read more
I’m looking forward to the memories of right now!
Dark wine mixed with another glass of wine or just take a look at my leather alike vest and my beloved camera. Nothing on purpose, as usual but I believe that my Nikon is more likely to be a jewelry, which has emotional and practical value. The suspenders broke the ice, as usual, even though I was the one breaking them a bit. I’ve been looking to buy more similar pairs, but I was out of luck. The necklace was a gift from Read more
