Apple pie in Amsterdam

It's been a while since I didn't post anything. I didn't have what to write about. I haven't travelled anywhere since Düsseldorf and I thought to write something about my past journeys.
I've been to Amsterdam in May. Even I stayed only two days I've wandered a lot around. It's nice to have someone with whom to share this experience. For me that's my best friend F.
He came to Amsterdam for a conference meeting and I said: "Why not meeting there?".  And I bought the tickets. We do this kind of stuff a lot.

So.. let's come back to my journey to Amsterdam. The weather was great. I was afraid it will rain but the sun was on my side. I will be honest and say that I didn't try any stuff for what Amsterdam is known. I wasn't tempted to do that.

Instead I've tried the best apple pie. I've found a nice place ("Back to black") where I had a delicious sweet breakfast. I will definitely go back.

What else? I was impressed by the naturalness of the parks. Aww.. and I wanted to rent a bike but I gave up quickly when I saw how crazy they are riding the bikes. It's like driving a car in Bucharest.

Now that I remember, this journey meant more for me. It reminded me what I love to do and that I shouldn't give up on things I adore to do for nobody. If someone loves you, he/she will be on your side and support you whatever you want to do.

Bustling Ho Chi Minh City & tranquil Mekong Delta

  My 3 weeks itinerary through Vietnam ends in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) or Saigon (as the locals know it). I had 2 days and a half to spend here. Here I met again with Leroy, who got to the city one day before me and left one day before I. From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through  https://www.workaway.info/ , a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place

Croatia: Dreamy Northern Dalmatia

We spent the last days of our holiday exploring the classic Dalmatian cocktail of historic towns, jewel-like waters, rugged limestone mountains, gorgeous climate and Mediterranean cuisine of the Northern Dalmatia. Plitvice Lakes In order to have a full day to spend exploring Plitvice Lakes we stayed overnight in the area. It was so quiet and peaceful there! I wish we could have stayed more days to enjoy that serenity state of the place. Being in some way a remote place it wasn't easy to find a restaurant to have dinner, but when we did it was the best. Cevapi, traditional grilled minced meat with ajvar (roasted red peppers sauce) I don't have a sweet tooth but I enjoy trying local deserts. Traditional strudel with cherries - a touch of chocolate makes this simple desert in a delicacy  Morning coffee with a view Love is in the air! From the accommodation we had 15-20 minutes drive to the Entrance 1 of the park. We have researched which trails to take and the best views are start

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)
