Weekend Getaway in Kyiv

Last weekend I got the chance to be in Kyiv for a conference, related to my job and I took the opportunity as a chance to explore the city for the first time as well. The weather though was definitely not on our side – we were there for the weekend only and it rained continuously going from a very light rain to a heavy shower 😀 and it only […]

Beer Fest at Vatra

The past weekend was full of great events happening around Chisinau. I chose to spend my Saturday evening at Vatra, one of my go-to places for this summer. We got there around 7 PM and enjoyed a few hours of quality spent time. The event was organized very well, with a lot of good beer and food. Given that I was driving, I skipped the beer tasting, but took a few notes […]

Travel back in Time at the Medieval Festival

Sometimes, the only thing we want to do is travel back in time, do things differently or see how an exact event happened, when it did.

At the Vatra complex, this is exactly what they’re trying […]

RetroMai la Vatra [RO]

Salutare dragilor 😉 Demult n-am scris pe blog, dar între timp, tare multe s-au mai întâmplat, așa că de 1 mai am hotărât să iau o pauză și să evadez din oraș. Am fost la Vatra, unde în perioada 1-3 mai se desfășoară festivalul RetroMai. Ce mi-a plăcut la RetroMai: am văzut mașini retro (un exemplar este chiar din 1939) erau meșteri artizani cu lucrările lor / lucrări handmade care […]

Honey Garlic Chicken

Hello, Dear readers! Did you miss me? Here I am with a very yummy recipe to share with you today ^_^ During my visits in the US last year, I’ve fallen in love with Asian food and the combinations it could bring. So ever since, I tried to recreate my own versions of Asian food at home, with the ingredients that I can find in our markets. Today’s recipe is very easy […]

Dragobete – Let’s celebrate the Love!

Hello everyone! I hope the last week of February is treating you well enough, regardless of where you are right now. Today, we’re celebrating Dragobete here in Moldova, which is similar to Valentine’s day. It’s a day when love is celebrated and we consider it the time when nature wakes up from her sleep, birds look for places to build their nests, and people, especially the youth, follow nature’s course. In honor […]
