The inspiring Fujisan adventure

After I decided to travel to Japan, hiking on Mount Fuji has become a must. It’s located in Honshu Island and is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776m (12,3897ft). It’s also the highest mountain I have ever been so far. Because I was there with another two friends and colleagues, I have decided to hike on the Yoshida Trail, which… Read more →

Hiking in Switzerland

I initially wanted to hike in Spain on the Santiago de Compostela but when I heard my friend that he is going on the Via Alpina in Switzerland, I  decided to changed my plans. I had no expectations because I wanted to take everything as it comes no matter how hard or challenging it will be. From start to the… Read more →

Never feel sorry for yourself

Sometimes people get hurt because life doesn’t owe us anything. We are born and the rest is up to us. If you want something in life, you only owe it to yourself to go out and get it. But when that happen, how hard is to turn the pain into an opportunity for learning and personal development? I have been… Read more →

Semimarathon in Italy

Starting with 2016, my goal is to run a semi-marathon, in a every new city I visit. Another thing I do, is to get an old book written by a local author, in the local language, usually a novel or a poetry book. First time to Italy, I run a semimarathon in Bari, a small city in the south of… Read more →

Running in Budapest

  Since my first 26k in Barcelona, my new goal is to discover more of the new cities I visit, through running. My last adventure was in Budapest, Hungary. I think in life we all have our reasons… For me, being active into sports is not only a form of self-expression but also one of the best ways to discover… Read more →

Time alone to the mountains

This week I’ve decided to have another “escape” and take some time off in the Apuseni Mountains. I am not going there with friends or family. Like I did it in Barcelona, I will be there by my own, but not alone, because I’m not feeling this way.   Similar to my trip to Barcelona, there is no master plan… Read more →

The story of my first 26k +

I am writing this blog post in the airplane, trying to sum up a great experience I had. I am looking on the window, hoping to find some inspiration on how to structure my story. The sky is blue and life feels great 🙂   In a previous blog post I was writing about discipline and consistency and the importance of… Read more →

Why I start writing

My guess is that every person has his own beliefs about not being able to do a certain thing. I was convinced that I am not able to write and nobody would ever be interested to read my lines. I thought that I don’t have talent therefore there is no point for doing it. I started to have this thing since… Read more →
