Tenerife in more pictures

I took this picture on our way from the airport. Two days later we went back and discovered a nice beach with nice view 
First time when I saw a plane flying over our heads. I didn't know they will fly so close to us
First morning. View from the balcony of the villa. There was a little bit cloudy but the clouds spread out quickly.
A Garfield walking in Adeje. I couldn't resist to take the picture. Here the cats are very fat. They are well fed :)). I wish I could be a cat living in Tenerife. I've heard the cats here have only 7 lives. I could live with that.
Near Playa de Las Teresitas. The stones have graffiti with different characters from different areas: arts, politics. 
Houses on the hills. Somewhere high on the hills there are caves and some huts where people are living. 
Playa de Las Teresitas. Too bad it was cloudy cause the water was perfect for a swim. As I said before, the best sand from any other beach. Soft, pleasant for my feet and toes.
A weird wood sculpture in El Medano.
Playa de Las Vistas. I'm gonna miss wearing sandals. My toes were so happy this week, they were so free
A selfie in sunset light
Things left to do next time:
- hike the Teide volcano till the top (for that I need to apply for the free pass in advance)
- spend more time on the beach
- explore the cities and villages on the coast

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)

Magnificent Florence

After reading Dan Brown's Inferno I wanted to go to Florence! That was two years ago and I had booked a trip for March 2020 but it was canceled due to the pandemic. This year I booked another trip for March, but that one got canceled too because I got covid. One month later I finally managed to visit Florence, but the plan doesn't always works out the way one expects. Initially the trip was for 3 nights but the airline with which I got the flight tickets changed the timetable and the first direct flight to return was after another 2 days, therefore I ended up spending 5 nights. Which turned out to be better! The journey to reach Florence was hellish! Apparently the airport is small, between cities, with only one runway, fairly short and not very wide. Additionally to that, the place is surrounded by high mountains, which is why it can be approached only in one direction. Not only does the terrain brings this challenge with it, but it also effectuates in a very unusual microclim

Kasteel de Haar - a luxurious castle

During the rainy days and with the current restrictions, my only consolation is writing about magical places I discovered in the past months in Netherlands. The subject of this post is De Haar Castle, a place rich in stories!  The joy of exploring this flamboyant castle De Haar is the largest castle in the Netherlands, once the private residence of the Van Zuylen family, whose descendants still stay there yearly. In the last century, the castle also frequently hosted members of the international jet set with their lavish lifestyle; from Coco Chanel to Roger Moore, they too left their mark on the sumptuous rooms of the most opulent spot in Utrecht. I visited the castle a couple of weeks ago, together with my dearest friend, Ioana, and it was a lovely Sunday, even with some warm sunshine!  This year I bought  Museumkaart  which allows free entrance to about 400 museums in the Netherlands, De Haar Castle included! Despite the months when the museums were/are closed, I got to use it a coup
