Tenerife, Jan. 2017

united_kingdomI admit, I was a bit stressed about the vacation in Tenerife with our 14 month toddler, for the first time flying with him (4 and half hour one), and also about how will we manage with the food for him (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between). But all turned out to be just fine: the flight was ok and the hotel offered All Inclusive, so there were plenty of options for baby to eat, including snacks and drinks all day long.

We were spending the days being outdoors a lot, at the beach or taking long walks. The baby would waste his energy exploring and investigating every single thing and we were running after him.

The thing I liked the most in Tenerife was the Teide Volcano National Parc. It was so quiet there that you could hear your own heartbeat, the landscape was dry and surrounded by giant rocks.

Enjoy the photos!


romania_flagAm plecat cu ceva emotii in vacanta spre Tenerife: am zburat pentru prima oara cu avionul cu cel mic in varsta de 14 luni (zbor de 4 ore si jumatate); imi faceam putine griji cu mancarea pentru el in cele 8 zile de vacanta: dimineata la pranz si seara, plus gustarile intre mese, insa totul a fost perfect – zborul lin si la hotel cu All inclusive cel mic avea mancare variata la dispozitie oricand.

Zilele le-am petrecut stand mai mult pe afara, la plaja sau la plimbare, el isi consuma energia si noi alergam dupa el facand cu schimbul.

Cel mai mult mi-a placut Parcul National al Vulcanului Teide: era o liniste din aceea in care iti auzi inima batand, peisaje cu vegetatie mai mult uscata, si multe stanci imense in jur.

Va las cu pozele.

Barcelona, Spain

united_kingdomWith Barcelona it was love at first sight. I don’t know if it was the warm spring weather, Gaudi’s art, the palm-trees or my birthday celebration on the beach of the Mediterranean Sea, but I want to go back some day and rest on a bench in the sun in Park Guell.

Tip: to avoid the crowds and enjoy the peace in Guell Park, wake up soon and visit early in the morning (before 10 AM).


romania_flagCu Barcelona a fost dragoste la prima vedere. Nu stiu daca datorita aerului cald de primavara, artei lui Gaudi, palmierilor sau aniversarii zilei mele de nastere la malul Marii Mediterane, dar stiu sigur ca vreau sa revin in Barcelona intr-o buna zi si sa ma lungesc pe o banca la soare in Parcul Guell.

Pont: Pentru a evita multimea de turisti din Parcul Guell, trezeste-te devreme si viziteaza-l dimineata inainte de ora 10.
