Day 294 – Spring is officially here!

D

I love the first day of March. It’s a special day for me ever since I was a kid. In my country, traditionally, everyone gives out a particular gift today, especially to girls. The gift consists in a small brooch, tied with a red and white string that you have to wear the entire month. Ten years ago I started taking off the brooch, but never stopped wearing the string on my wrist. This is...

Day 204 – Happy birthday Romania!

D

Today marks the first day of winter and also the passing of 96 years since my country was united under the same flag. Today would have also been my grandmother’s birthday, so this day has always had a double meaning in my family. Every 1st of December we would wake up, really excited about the military parade that we used watch at TV and later on, on the streets, waving a small flag while...

Day 167 – Some facts about my snow

Day 72 – The kind of person I “used” to be

D

I seem to be a very different person than I was three years ago. That is not even a little bit true, but because I am more constrained by time and life priorities than back then, this seems to be the general opinion (even mine sometimes). Today, me and my better half took a ride down the memory lane and remembered one of my adventures. I had just moved to Florence and everything seemed to shape...

Day 10 – A little bit homesick

D

As I was saying here, a few months ago I have designed an application where I reviewed and visited the coolest pubs in Florence. Today I had the chance to be in one of my favorites again, James Joyce. You can find it on Via Lungarno Cellini 1, and it opens at 4 pm every day. This pub has everything for everyone and gives a good vibe for one to start the evening. The thing that I like most about...
