The Calling of the Mountains

There are several rumours about how mountain-people or mountain-lovers are, most of them imply them being dirty people, rough necks, badly raised and sinful. Truth is, that is rarely true. But you have to find that out for yourself as I know no matter what others tell you, you just won’t believe it, ‘cause you know better. Don’t you? You know better because a friend of a friend of your mother’s uncle told you so. Right, perfect! But, how did he know that? He heard it from another friend of a friend.
And yet, I’ll tell you my own experience on this matter. I have to share it with you.

The end of summer

In all our legends and stories we can see that Romanians were very tight to their land, the agricultural moments used to mark the calendar and these days were felt as holidays or feasts.
Today, even if many peasants forgot what they used to work and how they used to do it the hard way thanks to the upcoming technologies and to the ways everything is being mechanized and industrialized, you can still feel a special itch in your heart when you get close to the old traditions.

Ceahlau Mountains / Munții Ceahlău

These are the mountains of legends, the mountains of mist and tales whom everyone sees as mystical.
Some think this is the sacred mountain of ancient Dacians, some think these inspired many of our national writers for some stories. To me, they were a place to know for my understanding of the romanian lands and history.

Padis - Apuseni Mountains/ Padiș - munții Apuseni

And here they are...the mountains of legends, the mountains of the old outlaws, the mountains with the most scenic landscape...but forget about all that! These are the mountains I like to call "home".
BEWARE! Visiting them may cause severe damage to your heart, which has the side effect of never ending wish to return there over and over again :)

Secrets of Sureanu Mountains / Secretele din Munții Șureanu sau Munții Orăștiei

These are the mountains where you can find the most famous dacian fortresses and cities. These fortresses lived up to the Roman empire, the dacian people inspired them and raised their interest in more than one way.

The Sureanu mountains are filled with beautiful sights but this is not what I'm going to talk about in this article, this is about what else is in these mountains: history, treasures, secrets and mystical hypothesis.

Hasmas Mountains / Munții Hășmaș

This small group of mountains is located in the eastern carpathians of Romania, near Gheorgheni and the Bicaz gorges. The area is filled with beautiful places to visit, unfortunately, the Hasmas Mountains are not so known by the tourists, I don't know why, 'cause they are quite a piece of jewelry to see!

Ciucas Mountains / Munții Ciucaș

These mountains who's name is famous for the beer brand Ciucas produced here, they are, according to me, a photo-heaven. Why? There is not a chance that you walk 10minutes without wanting to photograph something. The view is amazing, the rocky formations are so bizzare and so attractive that you can't quite get your eyes filled with them, actually, you can't decide what to admire, the rocks, the valley, the horizon, the light, the shadows? What?

Open-air theatre in Timisoara on Fest-FDR 2014

The TNTm - Teatrul National Timisoara - has delighted us with its surprise during the dramaturgy festival this week, ended on the 16th of june 2014.
Between all their shows performing in the same time in different locations, they had 4 groups performing in open air in the central square of Timisoara with some beautiful acts.

Groupo Puja, the first one to perform, coming from Spain has thrown many hypothesis as a crane showed up for their play in the central square. The Group performed a beautiful dance in the sky in a show that left many with their mouths opened due to its music, its uniqueness and its amazing synchronized dancers in the sky. The show is inspired from Lewis Carol's "Alice in wonderland" and is called DoDoLand. The music of Groupo Puja was also worthed the time and even more, I would buy the disc as it turned out to be, as someone in the Square said, a combination between Nightwish's type of music with the voices and musicality similar to the Phantom at the Opera.

What city people tend to forget

We live in the city and our everyday life tends to make us forget where we are and what other things are out there that could matter to us and help us have a  better life.
That's nature, silence, a place for meditation and self awareness...these things you find quite hard in a city but you can find them easily walking out of it for a day or a few hours. The images below are taken in a village 1 hour away from Timisoara.

Beautiful, isn't it? Beauty is a state of mind

...You hear that once in a while: someone might ask you about something, someone or someplace: "Beautiful, isn't it?" What do you say? "Well..."

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder or that tastes are not discussable but what I think is that beauty is just a state of mind. Actually it's a reflection of both the state of mind of the viewer as of the subject he/she is admiring.
