stranded in this spooky town

   I'm not a patriotic person. At all. I'm the first to admit that Romania has a lot of flaws,most of them having to do with its inhabitants. But I've got to say, we do have a nice country.
   On Saturday I finally managed to visit the Berca Mud Volcanoes. I loved the lunar landscape and the fact that I didn't fall in the mud ( knowing myself,it's something close to a miracle).


The two-hour trip to Berca was spent talking about our country's history and politics ( my sister is going through a phase in which she's obsessed with history and reads a lot about it so I've learned a few things myself ). 

After hiking for about 30 minutes and seeing all there was to see, we got into the car and decided to try and find a vintage clothing fair we had heard about. Of course that after driving for 4-5 hours,we couldn't find it!

So we spent the rest of the day looking for a good restaurant, finding it and then driving home in the pouring rain.

summer in the city

   I know! Almost a whole month has passed since I've written a single word. But I did have a lot going on right now so I had to prioritize. My exams have passed and although things didn't go as smooth as I wanted it to go, I'm happy I'm done with them. I do, however, have to wait until mid-September to find out if I got into med school ( there are very slim chances,but I don't want to lose hope ).
    Until then I've decided to leave my anxiety behind and just enjoy these few weeks of holiday. After all, worrying won't solve a single thing.


    As soon as I was done with the exams, I went to Castelul Corvinilor, a castle I had never visited before. I was a little bit disappointed ( maybe just because I had read so many positive reviews about it that I imagined it in a completely different way. also,the fact that I am currently obsessed with Downton Abbey, the tv show in which every episode exhibits so many wonderful surroundings, couldn't help. )


I've also went out with Radu quite a lot, trying ( but definitely not succeeding yet ) to make up for the time I spent home, studying. I'm so grateful Radu is understanding and supportive. I could only wish everyone would find such a wonderful human being as my boyfriend. 

Another thing I couldn't wait to do was go to all the kangoo events that take part every Saturday during the summer. I went to 'Kangoo Rock' and although by the end of it I couldn't really breathe, I was happy I got to move and do something for my health.

I plan on being very active these couple of weeks so hopefully you'll see more posts soon.
