Back in Brussels

I just came back from Brussels. I've been gone for a week.
I found Brussels changed. Or I've changed and I see things differently. Now I can understand better my friends who work among strangers.
Anyway.. It hasn't been all about work. In the evening I had some time to discover new places.
I arrived on Sunday afternoon.
View from my hotel room
After I checked-in I went out with my colleagues. First we went to eat to Ellis Gourmet. Honestly, I was disappointed about the food there. It used to be better. Then we moved to O'Reilly's for drinks.
Beer with view to Bourse
On the next evening we went for a walk in Gran Place. I love the shades of blue it had in that day. Otherwise the place is full with tourists.

On Tuesday I went with some friends to La Fontaine. This is a nice place near European Commission. The waitress was Romanian. I had a delicious salad with hot goat cheese, honey and bacon bits.

Wednesday afternoon view from my room
On Wednesday I went near Cimetière d'Ixelles. This area is full with students. I found this nice place, Le Tavernier. It reminded me a little bit of Bucharest.

Walk through Leopold Park after work
After work I went to do a little shopping on Avenue Louise. And I ended up to Peck 20, a nice place, different from the other restaurants from that street. Tasty food, great service, good music, cozy atmosphere.

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)
