Hello everyone! hope you are all well 🙂
Today is been 2 months since I arrived to Romania… honestly, the more time I’m here, the more I like it! Mainly because couple life makes me really, really (REALLY) happy, I’m very lucky of having an an amazing boyfriend, friend and partner to live with… but also, this city has many things to love.
What I like the most is the parks! There are SO MANY! big ones, small ones, tinny ones, tons of them all over! in walking distance of our building we have 8 parks! (for me that is an insane number!)… fortunately they are all green, clean, and very lovely to spend time in, talking, walking, and enjoying nature.
We regularly walk between 5min to 30min to a park, then we find a lovely bench, and we sit and talk, sometimes we bring food and have lunch there as a picnic, and other times we buy ice cream (yeeeii!!!) at the park. I love it…
This might be common to many of you… but my home city in Venezuela, Maracaibo… has almost no parks, the ones available are mostly crowded, and is not a green city because is insanly hot, always… it’s normally 45°C (113°F) and crazy sunny everyday, it gets up to 50°C (122°F) sometimes, and when is 30°C (86°F) we feel that is super cool weather… so I grew up mostly indoors, so I wouldn’t melt or burst into flames, and trees are rare and special, because not many survive the heat, we people have air conditioning (24/7 thanks God) and “cheap” electricity (compared to the rest of the world).
After living in Panama, I got much more used to trees and greenes, Panama (for me) is xtremly green and lovely, it is a tropical jungle after all! … but the INSANE humidity and sometimes powerful bugs, detered me from being outside… But I did enjoyed it much more than in my home town.
Now here, it’s completly different… first: seasons (another thing I’m loving)… Seasons rock! countries with seasons are SO lucky! In the tropics is always the same, which is awesome because everyday is beach day, even if it pours, normally the sun comes out again soon after… but you don’t see time passing on the earth.
I arrived in April, it was pretty cold in spring, no more than 14°C (53°F), normally 10°C (50°F)… so for my 30-40°C (86°F-104°F) used to body, it was cold… I liked it a lot, even if I didn’t enjoy peeing 355 times per night … now in June is summer, this are the temperatures I’m more used to, around 25-30°C (77°F-86°F)… but it was a huge treat to sea trees bloom, and then change colors and develope leaves! and flowers bloom… it’s amazing… I can’t wait for fall, I’ve dream with seing fall all my life, more than snow even (which I’ve never seen either).
I come from perpetual summer, and this ever changing place, makes me appreciate more the sutel things of nature I never focused on before, like how blue the sky is, how full the trees are, how many flowers and insects are around me, how sometimes the sun actually feels good on my skin… it is something special indeed.
I love nature… I love being outside 🙂
AND a few other things to love about this city…
I love you guys, thanks for reading…
