Rainy Madrid

There are things that we can't control, like weather, other people's behavior. And we have to accept this. This weekend I was in Madrid and I choose to fight against it and to be angry. 
Here it's how it went.
I arrived Friday evening. The flight was long but I enjoyed reading a book. Once arrived at destination I met with Florin and went for some tapas and sangria.
Outside was raining. This time my positivism didn't help.
Saturday rained all day. We started the day in a coffee shop. The coffee is really bad here or I couldn't feel anything. From the coffee shop we jumped into another one. You can't walk too much in the rain, therefore we went to eat again. It was still raining but we went further and visited El Retiro Park. What can I say, I'm in hate mood and I didn't enjoy it much.
If we were there, we also went to see  the Crystal Palace. Haters gonna hate. I have to check it out when I arrive home to see what's with that sound. It's like the glass it's going to break anytime.
As the day passed away, it rained more. We had to call the day and went to the hostel to dry out.
Well.. The day didn't end here.. We went to a bar. I don't about Florin but I definitely got drunk to stop feeling anything. This is just a temporary solution because the next day everything comes back. You can't run from your feelings. It's just a matter of time till you deal with them.
So, yes.. Angry is a feeling too. I was angry about the city. The streets are too tight, the people are too indifferent. The weather was bad. Nothing pleased me. 
And here are some pictures taken around:

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)
