The World - an amazing place!

pictures, pictures, pictures

The world - viewed as a small place

What did I know!?

When I was little I loved traveling by train, father worked for CFR - back in Romania, he had some permits for us to travel Free.

Where it all started??

That was a good thing...I would like to look through the windows and just imagine things; it was like being a movie producer,...I would create those characters in my mind and make them be part of my travel memories...


Memories that got stuck to me for the rest of my life!

traveling far away!

As the time progressed, we grew up and started making our own decisions.

We were going on short vacations to the Black Sea shore, spend spring break on the beach and so on. The Sea, the sound the sand, the sun....that was perfect all the time for us then!

But then was the weekend trip for hiking and explore the mountains; at times it could be like week long trips for longer exploration trips organized by the church we belonged to.

FirstĀ  long distance escape was in Italy, Trieste - by train; this time I remember was a very crowded train...I didn't like riding the train as much. Then, we've seen more of Italy by car...Rome,,,

Then was again by train going to Austria, nice train ride....not the best circumstances though.

After all, once in the United States, my real traveling adventure started!

Travel Roads

Made it into 40 States

Now it's hard to remember which states I have not visited....

hmmmmmmmm..........

Yeah, that's right! It will be Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and some other few we missed.

The uniqueness of each place we visited was memorable and as a habit, taking pictures make it easy to remember places, details about a particular instance and just enjoying life!

The Love for Travel

I like the sound of rolling luggage!

I love the scene of a plain!

I love all the above views!

color, life, travel, coffee,..

I love to live life on this earth as it was given to us - explore and enjoy!




The international traveler I became!

Briefly I would say...We started with Europe - not one country at the time but, a few.

Flying overseas was a passion of mine; loving everything about the trip, boarding the plane, the take off, the landing...

Then enjoying the places, driving through countries, even before the open borders, I'm still talking about Europe. Every country has its beauty, culture specific and is so much fun to learn about different cultures and traditions...

That wasn't enough - like a plague, I had the desire to do more, learn about other places, to reunite with long time friends we haven't seen for decades...

The plan was New Zealand and Australia this time. What a treat! The flight was like a transposing fact that just took us over in no time....oh....what time it is? - should we know!

Decided to drive...a little....or a little too much...the little Island from North to South and back... and continue our journey into Australia....the very much bigger Island - the size of the United States, yes, that's wright! It looks so much smaller, you just start driving through....then we talk!

So, we run into beauty left and wright, you get addicted to it, it'n never enough...a dream land!

Did I mentioned? - I love taking pictures...that whole trip was about 500 we took!

So, there will always memories to look at and there should be once more "another" opportunity to make it there or somewhere else!

I will never stop loving to travel!
