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 the last day when I became an expert, who didn’t fall at all. Skiing over 30 km each day wasn’t easy at all and that’s why all we needed was the jacuzzi. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a pleasant experience with that, because the hotel personnel was finding excuses all the time for not using it, so we ended to enjoy even more other things.
As well, I met a childhood friend from Brasov, who I haven’t seen for 5 years and she introduced me to her boyfriend. The meeting was a throwback to our fantastic holidays in Turkey and I simply adore Brasov, because it has a foreign air.
