MEET ME IN A COFFEE SHOP: MOZART CAFÉ

I love cafés. I love finding new places where I can go out either alone or with my friends and enjoy a cup of coffee, or tea, or whatever we feel like drinking. So, I kinda made it my mission to find new coffee shops, tea houses or bars that have something special.

Today I want to share with you one of my favorites here in Cluj: Amadeus Mozart Café! Continue reading “MEET ME IN A COFFEE SHOP: MOZART CAFÉ”

DAY 13: CLUJ CHRISTMAS MARKET

One of my favorite things about Christmas time is the way cities are decorated with Christmas lights and Christmas trees and all things pretty.

Also, I love Christmas markets. I love walking around looking at the christmassy things they sale, the different gifts you can buy, the smell of mulled wine in the market and the sound of Christmas songs all around you.

That’s why I want to share with you the Christmas Market from the city I study in.

Take a look a the Christmas Market from Cluj.

TAKING A TRIP TO PORTUGAL, FROM CLUJ

Today I attended a really interesting event, here in Cluj. It was called “Casa Portuguesa” and it was a more or less like an exhibition but more interactive.

You could learn about their history, listen to some traditional Fado music, taste some traditional Portuguese dishes and interact with the organizers of the event who were obviously Portuguese.

My favorite thing at the event were this really cute paper-made roses who had quotes (by Portuguese writers, of course) attached to them. The one I felt I had a connection with was: “We leave a little piece of us behind whenever we leave a place. We are still there although we left.” – Vergilio Ferreira

TAKE A WALK THROUGH CLUJ NAPOCA’S BOTANICAL GARDEN

The city I’m studying in, Cluj, is one of the biggest and, dare I say, best cities in Romania. Being a university center and host to many national and international events, there’s always something you can do and visit.

One of the places that one could visit all year around (even though it’s more beautiful during Spring and Summer) is The Botanical Garden (Alexandru Borza Cluj-Napoca University Botanic Garden). It’s a great place to go, take photos or a walk or read a book.

Here are some photos I took during one of my visits.
