We’ve been to Paris several times before, even for longer periods of time, but the city never succeeded in attracting us, mainly because it’s super touristic and crowded and quite expensive. We never managed to get the true Parisian vibe, to understand what this city is actually about, leaving aside La Tour Eiffel, Champs-Elysées, Musée du Luvre or Notre Dame.
For a weekend, a small and quiet mountain village in the Sibiu County, called Rîu Sadului was turned into the headquarters of a series of activities and workshops aiming to revive the local traditions, to reconnect urban people to the village life and to save a local endangered cheese assortment.
Tbilisi needed less than 2 days to convince us that it deserves to be in our top cities in Europe to come back to and explore more. We had the same connection with this place as we have been having with Belgrade for the last couple of years. Still not very touristic, super easy to walk around, lots of cool places to eat out and drink, very decent prices, excellent vibe.
I never say No to a trip to Italy, as it still is, in my perspective, the perfect destination in Europe to have everything you wish for – history, culture, superb urban and rural destinations, sea and mountains, green fields and scenic routes, amazing gastronomy, so much good wine and lots of sun (the last one a bit debatable in the recent years with all the global warming).
