alandala, I'm Back


We returned from the Aegean Sea on Tuesday evening. I mentioned that I'll be missing for a bit, hoping to go on a real vacation. I left my usual lifestyle back home and.. we spoiled ourselves again.

We spent afternoons on the rocks at the water's edge, just us and the sea. We fell in love with an ice cream shop, where we came back to almost every night. We got lost in endless stories in the venues of the Mediterranean resort.

I borrowed my camera to someone who had greater need of it. I don't want to explain myself, nor am I sorry for not having it with me. I do love blogging and I take great pleasure in taking pictures and writing about my adventures, but to free myself from gadgets and the internet, for a whole week, was like a breath of fresh air for me.

Yeah, It was that kind of holiday. When you leave your make-up bag untouched, when you explore every corner, just for your own curiosity, and you enjoy every sight. When the sunset leaves you breathless and you can't help watching it. When no one knows you and no one understand your language. When kisses grow longer and your intimacy extends. When your hair is salty and your skin is burning from the never stopping sun. When time slows it's pace and nothing else matters.

When your left with nothing else, but the fading tan and a the memory of an incredible summer of your youth.

But we're back. I was pretty off set at first, even though I unpacked as soon as we arrived.

I won't be home for long. Sunday I'll get on a plane and won't be back for a month .. This time though, I'll take my camera with me.

Until then I want to make the most of the last days of summer in Cluj. The last event until fall sets in, will be this Friday at the Alanda party by the lake.

I do not know if you attended the last edition, but I, for one, was totally charmed. I posted the video below, so you can have a taste of the atmosphere.


Ne-am intors de la Marea Egee marti seara. V-am spus ca voi lipsi putin din peisaj, dorindu-mi o vacanta in adevaratul sens al cuvantului. Am lasat stilul de viata obisnuit acasa si ne-am rasfatat din nou.

Ne-am petrecut dupa amiezi pe stanci la malul apei, doar noi doi si marea. Ne-am indragostit de o gelaterie pe care o vizitam aproape in fiecare seara si am stat la povesti interminabile in localurile statiunii mediteraniene.

Aparatul foto l-am imprumutat cuiva care avea mai mare nevoie de el. Nu vreau sa ma explic si nici nu-mi pare rau. Rolul de blogger mi-l asum cu drag si o fac din mare pasiune, insa pentru o saptamana, sa ma eliberez de gadgeturi si de internet, a fost ca o gura de aer proaspat.

Da, genul acela de vacanta a fost. Cand gentuta de make-up o lasi neatinsa, cand mergi in explorare, pentru tine, si te bucuri de fiecare peisaj. Cand apusul te farmeca si te opresti din drum doar sa-l privesti. Cand nu te cunoaste nimeni si nu-ti intelege limba. Cand spatiul intim se extinde si saruturile se lungesc. Cand parul e sarat si pielea iti arde de la soarele neincetat. Cand incetinesti timpul si nimic nu mai conteaza.

Cand nu ramai cu nimic, doar cu bronzul trecator si amintirea unei veri din tinerete.

Dar ne-am intors. Am fost debusolata in prima faza, chiar daca am despachetat imediat cum am ajuns.

Nu mai stau mult acasa. Duminica ma urc in avion si ma intorc abia peste o luna.. De data asta insa, voi avea aparatul la mine.

Pana atunci vreau sa profit de ultimele zile de vara in Cluj. Ultima petrecere pana in toamna va fi vineri, la petrecerea Alandala by the lake.

Nu stiu daca ati fost la editia trecuta, dar pe mine, una, m-a cucerit. Am postat video-ul mai jos, sa puteti gusta din atmosfera.

When I got there, I realized that it's exactly my kind of party. Large space and many points of interest among it to walk around. I hate sitting in one place at a party, I totally lack patience. I need to see what's happening everywhere, and all at once, if it's possible.

The fresh mountain air, the night sky reflected in the lake, the good music, the campfire and our Mojito crushing together in a silly toast, made e repeat silently, with a fanatic enthusiasm "This is going to be so epic!"

And it was.

I believe this time will be even better. The weather's going to be just fine. And this party means a lot, at least for me. It's my last weekend with the girls and until I get back, it's my last party with Andrei..

Cand am ajuns acolo, am realizat ca e exact genul meu de petrecere. Spatiu larg si multe puncte de interes intre care sa te plimbi. Nu-mi place sa stau intr-un loc la un party, n-am rabdare, trebuie sa vad ce e peste tot, si deodata, daca se poate.

Aerul proaspat de munte, cerul noptii oglindit in lac, muzica buna, focul de tabara si mojitoul cu care dadeam noroc prosteste, ma faceau sa-mi repet in gand, cu un entuziasm fanatic: "o sa fie epic!"

Si a fost.

Acum cred ca va fi si mai si. Vremea tine cu noi, iar petrecerea asta inseamna mult: Ultimul weekend cu fetele si pana ma intorc, ultima petrecere cu Andrei..
