Brasov, pain in the ass.

[Late post] So, I finally accepted Catalina’s invitation to visit Brasov together. No joke, this one was -literally- a pain in the ass (laughs).

We came to Brasov, a city in the Carpathians Mountains of Romania (around 2500 meters above sea level), around 2 hours and a half away from Bucharest.

My visit was basically about three things:

1. Discovering new sports: snowboarding and ice skating. Snowboarding (SB) was amazing, Cata give me a 10. And unlike ice skating where I fell only one time, SB was -after gymnastics- the most amazing sport I have ever tried. I felt the board easily sliding on snow and keeping control  of it through my feet and shoulders was hard.

Yes, I did fall. Not once, at least 30-40 times. Falling on my ass hurt like hell and two months later I still feel pain. No joke.

2. Discovering Romania’s spring weather. This year has been (and will be) very weird for everyone around the globe, the weather doesn’t make any sense. Our spring in Romania started very late and in some cities it still snowed in April. Brasov was no exception. My Sunday morning started with snow, then rain and then snow. (Trump, did you say something about global warming being a lie of the Chinese?)

3. Stay home and eat with Cata and her mom. There’s this beauty in staying home and do nothing but enjoy people’s company? Well, Cata’s home was very warm. Her mom is a sweet woman. They took care of me and fed me like a fat cat. I felt very loved (Plus, staying in bed is amazing, isn’t it?). Down below there’s a prove of Cata bring so focused on improving her driving skills.

And of course, I always find my spot. The one that I can stare at for long and feel nostalgic, happy and thoughtful:

Soon, soon, I need to go there again soon.
