Piatra Craiului – o dezlantuire pe lanturi

September 7, 2014


De cand vorbeam de Piatra Craiului. Era scopul meu pe anul acesta sa ajung pe creasta masivului Piatra Craiului, iar in urma discutiei cu o colega/amica am stabilit ca in august sa facem o tura de weekend cu colegii din firma. Zis si planuit – mai mult ea decat mine. Dar am ramas ca la […]

Saxon Transylvania Cycling – Day 2 (cont’d)

September 6, 2012


About a month ago I started writing the story of our cycling trip. If you didn’t get to see the first part, please read it here (it’s a lot more interesting than this one). The first day was a long one, with quite a bit of adventure, accidents, injuries and little stomach inconveniences, but nevertheless, […]

Saxon Transylvania Cycling – Day 1

August 15, 2012


Ever since I worked in the travel industry I’ve been thinking about Transylvania’s potential as a destination for cycling. When interviewing for Backroads Inc. right out of college (interview that I failed because I was applying for a bicycle guide position, while I hadn’t ridden a bike in 15 years) I was looking at their […]

Aviation hyenas, Malev bankruptcy and business efficiency

February 5, 2012


This past week Malev, Hungary’s national carrier, ceased operations after 66 years of continuous service. The company had been plagued by debt, an ageing fleet and increased competition by low cost carriers. It had received a Government bailout, yet it could not turn its business around. A startling story, as it is the first European national flag carrier to simply halt […]

Bukovel, Ucraina – ski si-un pic de “so and so”

January 9, 2012


Intre Craciun si Revelion am fost la ski la Bucovel, in Ucraina. De mult planuiam aceasta excursie, dar diverse evenimente (intre care, accident la ski in AUstria) m-au oprit in ultimii doi ani. Dar inainte de Craciun, mi-am dat seama ca 2011 era cat pe ce sa se termine fara ca eu sa fi mers […]

An ocean of milk as seen from Baisoara

December 12, 2011


Last night, driving down from Baisoara, I saw one of the most beautifulincarnations of fog. It was like an ocean of milk invaded the valley below and was waiting to swallow me as I was driving down. It was almost dark, so couldn’t really catch it in all its glory, but nevertheless, I think it’s […]

Ceahlaul si frumusetile sale

November 4, 2011


Ar fi trebuit sa scriu acest articol acum cateva luni. De fapt, l-am scris acum o luna, dar cumva WordPressul nu mi-a salvat articolul si am pierdut bunatate de ora jumate de scris. Dar trecem peste asta, si va prezint Ceahlaul, si excursia noastra din luna iunie a anului 2011. Voiam sa merg pe acest […]
