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.

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

Croatia: The Magical Istria

After the short stop in Trogir we drove to Pula where booked accommodation for 3 nights to explore the city and surroundings.  The country side on the way to Pula The drive took around 6h with some stops on the way. After we checked in we went directly in the city center for dinner. One speciality I saw it on the menu in the area is grilled squid with Swiss chard and potatoes. I was hesitant with the green leafs because they waiters were saying it's like spinach and I'm not a big fan of it. But this one was really tasty!   Grilled squid with Swiss chard and potatoes @  Kantina Restaurant The next day we went to one beach in Pula in the morning, another beach in Rovinj in the afternoon and stayed for dinner in Rovinj and explored a bit the city center. Hawaii Beach   Hawaii is a pebbly beach, with big rocks but it's worth it! The water is crystal clean and a good spot for snorkeling. It also has some high cliffs that attract the adventurous ones who want to jump in the water

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)
