Interview With Questions. What You (Might) Not Know About Me
In order to avoid that weird situation when people start asking too many personal questions, I simply decided to share most of my personal life here. This way, nobody will start thinking that I have God knows what super governmental secrets. So here we go :
• I was born a Pieces on almost the last day of February, the 28th, in Bucharest. I am a nomad since I know myself: I have lived in Ploiesti, Oradea, Arad; all this before coming back to Bucharest for high school. At age 23 I moved to Miami for an entire year and just so you know, it was an amazing experience! Obviously, I came back home, in Bucharest, and I lived here for few years before I moved to London first, for one year, rainy weather indeed, and then I moved to Paris and finally, I moved to The Hague. This being said (and done!), currently, I am enjoying the Dutch weather in Amsterdam.
• I try to work daily on my blog and I plan to start posting stories weekly.
• I love minimalism. Light pictures and Scandinavian interior design.
• I am a social animal. I adore my home, but I’d rather spend my time outside, rumoring somewhere, probably this is the reason why I became a travel blogger.
• I eat almost everything – except bananas and mandarins, which I am allergic to (if that is even possible!) and I hate onions – Dutch people put onions in everything…I expect one day to see onion ice-cream in the supermarket.
• I drink wine, lemonade, Old Fashion, Gin Tonic, Mojito and lemon water. Not in this order…but you get the picture.
• I don’t like to sit on a beach and “fry” myself. I find this the most useless and boring activity ever.
• If I don’t have a trip planned, I am depressed with capital D. I measure my time in “days left until I have to go to the airport.”. I suffer from severe PTD (post-travel depression). What does that mean? Guys, I book my next trip around 24 hours or even less, from the moment I land back home.
• I can’t stand going shopping for something specific, I get annoyed and I leave. But if I don’t need to buy something, I will stroll the whole day and come back with a tone of useless items.
• When it’s about movies, I search for something special – as you can find in “Grand Hotel Budapest” or “La Grande Bellessa”! I stopped watching TV series and I canceled my Netflix in order to dedicate my free time completely to the blog. But since I am a corporate traveler and I work during the week a full-time job, I re-subscribed to Netflix, because there is not much to do in the trains. (too lazy to work on the blog!)
• I never remember where I put my things but in the end, I always find them. I only lost a pair of earrings when I was 12 and nothing else since then. My mom lost my wallet one time, but I still had my ID in a different bag (the organized disorganizer!)
• No matter how super excited I am for going on a trip, I simply can’t manage packing my luggage on time. My current record – I started packing one hour before leaving to the airport. Still pushing for less! ☺ On the other hand, when I get home, it can take even weeks to unpack! I think that people (like my boyfriend!) that unpack on the same day they’re back are serial killers or something.
• Vlad, my boyfriend, if I didn’t say it enough by now, he can get really annoyed with me because I don’t put anything in order and I leave the closet door half opened and of course because everything is a chaos around me (I don’t see like that, but he does!)
• I don’t have a favorite destination as I get impressed by each in a different way. I would say that Lisbon was the best, but I was amazed by Minsk. I also have very vivid memories about Copenhagen, but I can’t forget how beautiful the sunset was in Turku. You get my point, right?
• I love to try new food, especially traditional dishes, even more, I find it super amusing that most of the locals don’t eat their traditional food. I have my freezer full of traditional food, and when I visit Romania, that’s the only thing I eat.
• I love the feeling I get when people ask for tips for a destination and then when they come back they are super excited that they loved my suggestions. Priceless moments!
• In the following year, I see myself making a living from my passion to travel, wherever and however I will be able to do it! I don’t know yet! Stay tuned and we can find out together.
