This is the chicken I ate last time

  I currently live in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Maybe some of you know the place as Transylvania, close to the Apuseni Mountains. I love to eat good food and because I always search for the authentic taste, I like to buy local products. The chicken I ate last time was living freely in the yard of a local family, somewhere in the countryside.… Read more →

My top five documentaries of 2016

Sometimes I watch documentaries when I don’t have a really good movie around. After every great book I read or an insightful documentary, I feel that the more I learn and understand about the world, the more I question the reality around us. This year I’ve seen some great documentaries about the environment, globalisation, consumption, global economy, food, industrialisation, technology. But… Read more →

Your personal trash

As consumers I believe it’s our responsibility to make better choices when we buy products and consume resources. There is a thought that keeps running into my head for some time now : trash and waste. For the first time, we are capable of producing more than we actually need. There is a huge surplus of useless products, which we… 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.

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 →

What do we eat?

I am in front of my computer, thinking about my first days alone here and I am listening the noise of a fly. The weather is a bit cloudy and windy. And today the sun is shy. By the time I finished my sentence, the fly is gone and all I can hear, smell and feel is the nature, breathing,… Read more →

Time alone in 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 →
