It's 1:33 p.m. and I just got back in bed with a deep purple smoothie and my laptop. Like me, it spent all night in "sleep"-mode - I guess we slept together. Andrei was not here to keep me safe in his arms. That's why my mean subconsciousness punished me  with a nightmare. I didn't even save this one to my iPhone App, Dream Bord.  This dream I surely did not want to remember.. Do you know the App? It's soo cute, much too cute for what secrets I had to reveal this morning.

With my legs tightly wrapped in a fluffy blanket, I'm checking out my blog's visitors and I must say, I'm very pleasantly surprised . I'm clicking the seemingly random numbers, just to see where the people are from, that are following me right in this very moment. IT , US , RU, TH , CH , UK , DE , CA , A and many more are intertwined with the majority of RO's. I'm smiling dazed  as I write, and yet I still don't know how to put my feelings into words. - I can't believe how cool the Internet can be and how much we owe to those who have conceived it. With today's technology, the whole world is just one click away. This kind of communication is the thing I love most about globalization! How absolutely extraordinary the world we live today can be and how we have so many opportunities , that past generations did not get to enjoy.


The first time I came across my statistics was on the very first night I launched my blog. We were celebrating. By then I already had two glasses of champagne with frozen cherries. That's when I first understood the satisfaction such a platform can bring you. I thought then that euphoria I was feeling was due to the alcohol, but I was wrong:  even after just a smoothie and a nightmare ,my heart still beats faster at the sight of the incredible diversity of my readers. I truly feel very lucky to have you.

So I wanted to thank you for making my mornings brighter and for the feedback you have given me, right from the beginning . <3

E ora 13:33, eu m-am intors in pat cu un smoothie visiniu aprins si cu laptopul care a stat si el toata noaptea pe "sleep" - Am dormit impreuna. Andrei nu a fost aici sa ma scufund in bratele lui. Subconstientul meu mi-a raspuns cu un cosmar. Un vis pe care nu am vrut sa mi-l amintesc, asa ca l-am omis din aplicatia mea dragalasa pentru vise. O sitit si voi? - Dream Bord se numeste. E tare simpatica, mult prea simpatica pentru ce secrete as fi avut eu sa-i divulg in dimineata asta.

Cu picioarele infasurate strans in plapuma pufoasa, ma uit la vizitatorii blogului si raman surprinsa. Apas aleatoriu pe cifrele insirate aparent la intamplare, doar ca sa vad de unde e persoana din spatele ecranului care ma urmareste acum. IT, US, RU, TH, CH, UK, DE, CA, A si multe altele se impletesc cu RO-urile care compun, totusi, majoritatea. Zambesc buimaca in timp ce scriu si nu stiu cum sa pun in cuvinte ceea ce simt. - Cat de tare poate fi internetul si cat de mult datoram celor care l-au conceput. Cum prin tehnologia de astazi lumea e doar la un click distanta. Genul acesta de comunicare este aspectul pe care il iubesc cel mai mult la globalizare! In ce lume absolut extraordinara traim astazi si cum avem atatea oportunitati, de care generatiile trecute nu au avut norocul sa se bucure.

In prima seara cand am dat drumul Blogului, dupa doua pahare de sampanie cu visine inghetate, am dat intaia oara peste statistici. Inca de atunci am inteles satisfactia pe care ti-o aduce o astfel de platforma. Am crezut atunci ca euphoria se datoreaza alcoolului, dar uite ca, si dupa un smoothie si un cosmar, tot imi bate inima mai tare, cand vad cat de norocoasa sunt sa am asemenea diversitate de cititori.

Voiam astfel sa va multumesc pentru ca imi faceti diminetiile mai bune si pentru feedback-ul pe care mi l-ati dat inca de la inceput. <3

Speaking of the accessibility  of today's world, I want to share another little something with you today:


Two nights ago, me and my friends decided  to make a spontaneous getaway to Vienna. Just one night. Why? - Because: "Why not?" (My cheeky answer when I saw my mother's surprised reaction)

I truly believe that people can only grow by traveling. Just that when you do go out to see the world, you must have a free mind. It needs to be open to absorb the beauty around you. You have to let go and discover new things. To come in contact with people of different cultures, and not be afraid to let yourself change by the new experience you gather over time. To love it all.

I personally do not see globalization as a threat to one's individuality, but rather as the ultimate freedom. You don't lose yourself,  you're actually more likely to find yourself.

Apropo de accesibilitatea lumii in ziua de azi, vroiam sa va mai povestesc ceva:

Cu doua seri in urma, eu cu prietenii mei ne hotarasem spontan sa facem o escapada pana la Viena. Doar o noapte. De ce? - pentru ca: "De ce nu?!" ( Raspunsul meu obraznic cand i-am vazut reactia surprinsa a mamei mele )

Cred cu convigere ca oamenii se pot dezvolta cu adevarat doar calatorind. Insa si cand o faci, trebiue sa ai o minte libera, deschisa sa absoarba toata frumusetea din jur. Trebuie sa iubesti sa privesti si sa incerci lucruri noi. Sa vrei sa intri in contact cu oamenii de diferite culturi, si sa nu-ti fie frica sa lasi experienta sa te schimbi pe parcurs.

Eu nu vad globalizarea ca o amenintare la individualitatea fiecaruia, ci la o libertate suprema. Nu te pierzi pe tine, ci ai mai multe sanse sa te regasesti.

Besides the memories, I came back home with the sunglasses in the pictures above. They instantly became my favorite pair ever since I saw them enlightened on the shelf next to their little precious pale pink box. They remind me of the romantic Viennese air and of a classic simplicity, so refined and elegant. I can't wait to wear them!  If only the clouds that pondered upon Cluj would dissolve faster.

Among other things, I also brought another box:

Pe langa amintiri, am mai ramas cu ochelarii din poze dupa aceasta mini excursie. Au devenit instant perechea mea preferata, inca de cand i-am vazut iluminati pe raft, langa cutiuta lor pretioasa, roz pal. Imi amintesc de aerul romantic al vienei si totodata de o simplitate clasica, plina de rafinament si eleganta. Abia astept sa ii port, doar sa treaca norii care s-au rasfrant deasupra Clujului.

Printre altele, am mai adus o cutiuta acasa:

If you've been to Vienna, you surely past by Aida at least once. The first time I saw the city, a few years ago, I couldn't resist stopping by for some cake, that was when I found out that this place had a history dating since 1913. I love venues with a past! Not to mention that one of the ladies that served us was Romanian. This time I still found her there, smiling warmly, through her new beautiful wrinkles.

Daca ati fost in Viena sigur ati trecut cel putin o data pe langa cofetaria Aida. Prima data cand am fost, acum cativa ani, nu am rezistat sa nu intru sa-mi iau o prajiturica, atunci am aflat ca aceasta dateaza inca din 1913. Cat imi plac locurile cu istorie! Sa nu mai spun ca una dintre domnitele dragute care ne-au servit era romanca, si de data asta am gasit-o acolo, zambind calduros, printre noile riduri.
