On the edge of time. The Majestic Way.

In one very hot afternoon, after some long days of worries and doubts, when I've decided to let go and enjoy life a little more, I've stepped into a Universe of flowers, oriental charm, and music. Soft, blessed music for my soul. 

Penang, a love story

I've managed to avoid Penang a lot in the last years and I don't know why. Now, after our journey on the island, I can tell you this: it's worth a visit! Let me take your hand and show you my Penang and the things I fell in love with.

Lost and found

I was a little bit lost when I was heading to Penang. You know that feeling of being under pressure, overwhelmed, stressed out and don't know what's next. So, I was looking for something to make me smile again and a place where to find my peace. 

The sweetest memories

I remember many years ago, I was in the lobby of Ritz, in Paris, looking in awe at the wonderful design and the grandeur of this iconic hotel. And in that moment, I had a dream: maybe, someday, I will stay at the Ritz.

Cum să călătorești mai mult și să fii plătit să vezi lumea (curs)

De curând, am împlinit 11 ani de când m-am mutat în București și 8 ani de când călătoresc prin lume. De 9 ani scriu pe blog. Am visat vreodată că voi ajunge aici? Bineînțeles că nu. Însă am avut determinarea de a merge pe drumul ăsta, de a face o mulțime de greșeli și de a învăța. Tot timpul. 

Pangkor Laut. One island, one resort.

I thought there would be a 3-4 hour journey from Tanjong Jara to Pangkor Laut and the car will go across the country, through the mountains, until we'll meet the west coast and its shore. But I was wrong. Our driver laughed and told us we have a 6-hour road in front of us. Ok, I can do this!! Let's ride! 

Tanjong Jara, my unfolding dream

After 6 visits, Kuala Lumpur is already home to me. I know the city, it really inspires me and I can create magic here. I have my favorite hotel, my special place where I eat and my supermarket. But after 5 days in this relentless city, I felt a calling, an unstoppable wish to go further, to discover more. 

Fifty shades of Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur has a strange power over me. It is not the most beautiful city I've seen, it is not the greenest or luxurious capital I've been in, but it has something magical: the heat, the smells, the people, the skyscrapers, the lights. And an undoubtedly feeling of being home. 

My February summer at the Red Sea

I had a wonderful journey from Petra to Aqaba, with a luxurious car driven by a Beduin (65 JOD), through the breathtaking mountains of Jordan, through villages and the sacred site of Wadi Rum. It was a one and a half hour long ride, and I would repeat it anytime! 

Love is all around

Good morning from Istanbul!! Now it's raining heavily, but still, I will miss this amazing city. From my window, I can see the boats on the hazy Bosphorus, and I'm thinking about Istanbul and the Turkish people I've met these days.

6 Questions to get over anxiety and any difficult moment

In times of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, I put a lot of questions out there, into the world. Some of them are just prayers for some help, any help possible, others are desperate like “What else do I have to do?”, “When?”, “How?”. For both categories, the answers are not very clear or fast. I wait and wait, and fear more, and struggle even more.

Why you don’t have to balance work and personal life

I strongly believe that what we do and what we have don’t represent who we are and, in fact, don’t say anything about us, like human beings.

Cărți, povești și un an magic

De când mi-am instalat Kindle-ul pe telefon și comand cărți cu un singur click, viața mea s-a schimbat. În bine:) Simt că am acces la o lume fabuloasă, la porții de înțelepciune, la felii din viața altor oameni, la talentul, inspirația și darurile lor. De 4-5 ani citesc doar în engleză și mă bucur enorm de cărțile pe care le descopăr pe Amazon - free sau cu prețuri medii, de autori celebri sau necunoscuți. Iată mai jos câteva volume care mi-au plăcut în 2016, poate te inspiră și pe tine...
