I discovered in Tel-Aviv

  • A full circle rainbow & The Motto of Tel-Aviv:

The first thing we learn in school about rainbows is that they are formed on the opposite side of the sun and you cannot capture both the sun and the rainbow in the same picture. But turns out you can (ok, it’s called Sun Halo and Circumzenithal Arc) I discovered it when I went walking on the first morning, just above the hostel:

  • Many interesting flowers:

  • The Al-Bahr Mosque tower and Tel-Aviv seen from Old Jaffa:

  • Palms, Skyscrapers, planes and the Tower of the old Mosque:


  • A lovely tiny shy Crab (for which I patiently waited some minutes to gather the courage to get out):

  • Things I dare you to decipher:

  • The Gate of Faith, “Briza Marii” (sculpture made by an artist born in Romania), the Zodiac Fountain and the amazing colors of the interior of the St Peter’s Church:

  • My Lunch, the Rainbow building and the Altalena memmorial stone:

  • My pink new shoes (and how fat I became this year):

  • The Sunset over the Mediterranean Sea (not to brag, but admit the picture of the boat is breath-taking):

Alone in the Czechoslovakian woods…

Saturday morning I woke up at 3:30 😀 After only 3h of sleep.

And at 5:30 my bf and his friend were already setting up their antenna and their broadcasting equipment, somewhere in the Czechoslovakian mountains.

Lucky me, the room in the hotel was ready at around 10 in the morning so I had the chance to rest a bit.. while I was downloading minions on my tablet (me very, very bad Archer!)..

Long introduction short… on Saturday after lunch, I had some time off all by myself and I decided I would have a 12 km walk around the woods, on the track from Kohútka to Malý Javorník and back!

I didn’t track the walk automatically by runkeeper because the gps signal was not that strong between the trees and also the phone would get into roaming at some points, so I would’ve lost data connection anyway.. And even after I tracked it manually, their calculation of “Total climb” is a bit lost in the fog…it’s clearly visible on the map (even on Runkeeper map) that I had areas even under 900 and then over 1000. Therefore I assume my “Calories Burned” is not correct either.


It was a 2h and 15 min walk – started at 14:30, came back at 16:45, while being mesmerised, alone, along the border between Czech Republic and Slovakia, at 15 to 17 degrees Celsius, 100% air humidity 😀 I’m so happy it came to me the idea and the energy to do that, instead of staying in the room pretending to nap, instead, defeating the bosses of Naxxramas.. I mean, a truly inspired moment was at home, when I packed and I decided not to take the charger just for one day. So the walk, 2 hours alone in the woods, just me with my own thoughts. I really want to repeat this experience!

And the landscape was epic:


Then… the sad part happened when I got back and my bf told me that the lady where we left Bonnie just called him desperately announcing that Bonnie ran away.. :(((( That Bonnie might be all alone since Friday evening, God knows in which woods, starving :(( He had the contacts to the local vet on his collar so we hope some good-hearted czech citizen will find and return him. And for next time we will install a gps tracker on him.. 😦

And the hotel, when I checked-out this morning. There were 9 degrees, but felt like 0..


Memories of vacation

Because the Mamaia sunrise is more beautiful than the Vama one 😀

On a different train of thoughts, last night when I was dreaming of levitating and flying, I couldn’t realize that I’m actually dreaming. Weird… I must’ve been really tired. Besides, not that much fun leveling up in a game where I’m not even participating as a contestant.
