[Romania] Family weekend in search of the Ancient Dacian Fortresses

Although it’s only the beginning of February and spring is not even thinking of showing its face, we still can’t stand still at all during the weekends.

[Events in Sibiu] Musical Tasting – music, food and socializing

Some might say that Sibiu is a cultural city, with lots of events happening almost every day of the week. I wouldn’t argue with that, but this city still lacks some socializing, after work events for people who are not in the mood anymore to spend their nights in dark clubs surrounded by mostly teenagers and students.

[Palestine] The story of Battir

We knew about Battir that it’s and UNESCO World Heritage Site and that’s why we asked Michael, our guide in Palestine, to drive us there and show us around the village. What we didn’t know is that this village has such a strong story behind and so many great people working hard to change mentalities and show Battir’s true value.

Road trip in Palestine

Traveling to Palestine was a new experience for us from many perspectives. It was a trip of amazement, of appreciation, of encouragement, of mixed feelings, of compassion, of quilt sometimes, of feeling overwhelmed, of everything a trip and a new place should make us feel so that in the end once you left there you felt you had earned something for your growth and your soul.

[Israel] Two Deserts and The Dead Sea

Two of the four days we spent in Israel were dedicated to exploring a bit the country and going out of the cities. It was a very good idea with all the good weather we had. We had 2 long days in which we discovered the Sea, two deserts and long abandoned ancient fortresses and cities.
