Another Valentine's day! :))) Dar, astazi, iubim romaneste! Este ziua de Dragobete si sarbatorim romaneste!
Si cum sarbatoresc romanii? Cu bere, tuica, mici, etc...?! Glumesc!
Bine cel putin ca vremea de afara nu ajuta, ca sincer, as vedea pe cate unii cu mici, bere si alte asemenea..
Sa revenim la subiectul zilei, Dragobetele.
Se spune ca Dragobetele ar fi fost fiul Babei Dochia, un fel de Eros, sau Cupidon al nostru, ca o fiin??, parte omeneasc? ?i parte îngereasc?, un june frumos ?i nemuritor, care umbl? în lume ca ?i Sântoaderii ?i Rusalele, dar pe care oamenii nu-l pot vedea, din cauz? c? lumea s-a spurcat cu sudalme ?i f?r?delegi”.
Mai este cunoscut ?i ca zeul dragostei ?i al bunei dispozi?ii, de ziua lui se organizau petreceri, deseori urmate de c?s?torii. El este protectorul ?i aduc?torul iubirii în cas? ?i în suflet”.
Dragobetele mai poate fi întâlnit ?i sub denumirea de „Dragomir”, cunoscut ca un cioban care o înso?e?te pe Baba Dochia în c?l?toriile prin mun?i, dar reprezint? de asemenea ?i o figur? pozitiv?, simbol al prim?verii, iar de ziua lui se s?rb?torea înnoirea firii ?i se preg?tea de prim?var?.
Exista in Romania destul de multe traditii cu acest prilej, dar toate aveau ca tema renasterea, voia buna, iubirea, dansul si bucuria. Un motiv in plus de a sarbatori simbolul Dragobetelui, dupa o iarna grea, mai ales ca aceasta sarbatoare dadea cumva startul venirii primaverii.
Acum...nu mai avem nevoie de motive, iubirea ar trebui sarbatorita in fiecare zi , in toate felurile ei.
Ei ,da! Te uite cum ninge...chiar ninge si e de-a dreptul superb! Imi place iarna si-mi place exact momentul asta...se apropie Sarbatorile cu pasi foarte repezi...(pffai!! cand scriam articol despre vacanta de vara?! Asta ca sa vedem ce repede trece timpul..) si e forfota, se aud colinde, se impacheteaza zeci de cadouri, se impodobesc brazii...e o stare de bine, de sarbatoare, de family moment...
Intr-adevar, Decembrie este luna cadourilor, este cea mai frumoasa perioada din an si cand ninge asa ca-n povesti este pur si simplu incantator. Poti privi doar fetele copiilor si inclusiv ale cainilor care se joaca prin zapada, ca sa intelegi ce inseamna pura fericire. Imi amintesc de mine, cand eram copil...ce incantare era pe capul meu cand ma plimba tata cu sania prin nametii de zapada...ce vremuri...parca a fost secolul trecut...
In acest articol este despre famile, despre armonie, despre suflet...despre asa cum ar trebui sa fim in fiecare zi din an...buni, respectosi, responsabili, emapatici, calzi, iubitori...caci doar prin iubire si bun simt si responsabilitate putem fi mai buni, mai atenti unuii cu altii...
In secolul vitezei, abia daca ne mai intereseza ce e cu vecinul, sau cine e vecinul...bineinteles ca ati observat ca toata lumea e aplcata asupra telefonului mobil fie ca e pe strada, in autobus, in metrou, tren, etc...nici nu observam calatorii, statiile...suntem niste roboti ambulanti si atat! Trist. Foarte trist!
Unde-s parintii care se joaca cu copii lor, sau citesc povesti sau lucreaza impreuna la un proiect ? Unde-s copii care fac oamenii de zapada si se alearga si se dau saniile...asa cum o faceam noi?
si...te uite cum ninge Decembre...asa au trecut anii si peste Alifantis si peste Bacovia....
Sa ne bucuram de azi! Sa ne bucuram de aceste Sarbatori, de noi si de ani nostri!
E o luna plina de invataminte , daca stai sa asculti, sa simti, sa vezi...sa luam aminte si sa fim mai oameni in fiece clipa a existentei noastre.
Daca n-ati ajuns la capitolul de impodobit bradutul, va recomand sa incepeti cautarea lui, (daca doriti unul natural, dar v-as recomanda unul artficial :D), si gatirea lui, ca sa-l asteptam cum se cuvine pe Mos Craciun. Caci altfel, cum sa fie Craciun fara Mos Craciun, nu?
Sa ne fie masa, masa si casa, casa! :)
Sarbatori fericite, dragilor! Sa aveti un Craciun tihnit, cald, luminos si un An 2018 plin cu de toate!
Idei de weekend sau ce sa mai vizitam pe langa Bucuresti.
E vara, cel putin calendaristic, e soare si pentru ca e weekend, ar fi pacat sa-l irosim stand la Tv.
Va propun sa inchiriati un BMW cabrio ,care sa va faca iesirea mai speciala si de ce nu mai romantica.
Pe lista mea includ Palatul Mogosoaia, 15km de Bucuresti. Cadrul e unul scos parca din vechile timpuri si te inspira la fiecare pas. Plin de istorie, Palatul -monument este reconditionat si ingrijit, asa cum ar trebui sa fie toate casele monument. Este intr-adevar mai agomerat pe weekend, dar putem trece psete acest mic inconvenient si sa ne bucuram de ce ofera Palatul.
Cladirea a fost construita de Constantin Brancoveanu pe malul stang al raului Colentina in anul 1702, pe care l-a oferit ulterior fiului sau, Stefan. Asa se explica stilul arhitectural – brancovenesc – al palatului, imbinat cu elemente renascentiste, orientale si baroce. Culoarea rosie a caramizii cu care este placat intregul ansamblu, alaturi de verdele parcului si coloritul florilor ii dau un farmec aparte.
Complexul, cuprinde pe langa Palat si Casa de Oaspeti, ridicata de catre Nicolae Bibescu pe locul unui vechi conac de secol XVII, Bucataria Brancoveneasca, Ghetaria, in trecut se pastrau blocuri intregi de gheata taiate din Lacul Mogosoaia. Astazi, spatiul respectiv este folosit pentru expozitii, Turnul Portii, iti sugerez sa te urci in Turn de unde vei avea o priveliste impresionata, Biserica Sf Gheorghe.
Fiind frumos afara, cald, iti poti permite si sa profiti pur si simplu de peisaj, de faptul ca esti inconjurat de istorie si vechi traditii, de natura si de mult verde, de aer mai curat, stand pe iarba din parc, la un picnic, sau de ce nu... te poti juca un volei sau te poti plimba pe lac.
Pentru o zi de relaxare intr-un ambient special si cu istorie, pentru mine e o varianta castigatoare.
Cu siguranta ati auzit de el, aici au loc tot felul de evenimente publice sau private, nunti, etc.
In ceea ce-l priveste, parerile sunt impartite. Vegetatia poate nu e la fel de ingrijita ca la Palatul Mogosoaia, nu poti sta pe malul lacului, ca nu e voie, dar palatul in sine merita.
Piesa centrala este bineinteles Palatul Brancovenesc Mogosoaia, care a fost ridicat de Barbu Stirbey la 1850 sub forma de cula.
In timp, i s-au mai adaugat alte 2 etaje actualei cladiri si s-au adus o srie de imbunatatiri, in stiul Tudor, (by the way, epoca mea preferata). Ultimele modificari, retusari s-au facut dupa primul razboi mondial si s-au adaugat alte noi spatii de locuit pe partea Sud-Estica.
In vremurile bune, erau la parter o sala de receptie, o sufragerie, o biblioteca, o sala de muzica si un mare salon, Imi si inchipui ce baluri s-au dat in acel salon, ce muzici rasunau si ce toalete se invidiau...
Primul etaj era prin exceptie dedicat stapanilor si cel de-al doilea etaj era folosit de oaspeti.
De vizitat si Capela Sfanta Treime, iar pentru a ajunge acolo , se trece un pod care traverseaza lacul cu sanse sa vezi si vreo lebada gratioasa si absolut superba.
Campina si Valea Doftanei, Lacul cu Barajul Paltinu, 100km de Bucuresti.
O zona superba si chiar merita sa ajungi pana aici. Poti innopta la Atra Doftana, o super pensiune, un peisaj de-ti taie respiratia si un restaurant cu preparate alese. O destinatia pe care o voi alege oricand daca doresc relaxare si ambient placut.
Cam acestea ar fi alegerile mele pentru un weekend reusit. Bineinteles ca mai sunt multe alte variante de petrecere a timpului, dar le vom mentiona intr-un alt articol.
For several years, more people turn to car rental services in Bucharest and other cities. Sometimes people do not know what they should do when you want to rent a car and could get nothing more than what they expected. And to avoid these things, I thought it would be better to give some advice.
Most importantly, before starting to search the car you want is to think about exactly where we need it, how many passengers we have, if we have children, if summer or winter and the list goes on depending on individual needs.
And now to begin.
We chose the location, we know how many passengers we have and in what time we will need a car.
1. The first thing choosing a car rental agency, you can contact our Eurocars agency in major cities or other agents can search on google.
2. When you start to fill in the form of rental cars to pay attention unless they are charged hidden fees such as late payment penalties, gas prices and more.
3. To be aware that car rental must be presented for the same brand and same model as declared in the rental agreement carefully and check the information given on your vehicle registration and check if they correspond with reality.
4. Sometimes discounts are offered to rent a car, follow these discounts and take advantage of them. Discounts are offered if used for payment by credit card, or loyalty to certain age, one day to four days free rent, special prices for weekends, holidays or unpaid hours between particular times.
5. If the luggage and group size are small, you can consider a smaller car. If you plan to travel with a large or too bulky luggage, you can rent a minibus.
6. Be careful what kind of car you choose. There can not have the manual and you will not be used with the automatic. Or if it is equipped with child seat, GPS and more.
7. If the trip will be on multiple days or want to leave the Romanian territory,read section across border rentals, be careful if they are not special provisions for renting cars abroad or if the company will grant this right.
8. Ask for a phone number in an emergency to report a fault, if it will occur, or other problems. Asked how such a problem will be solved.
9. Make sure also that the agent inspects the body in your presence and that will put the agreement in respect of any damage.
10. Before leaving the vehicle, check to make sure you do not have personal items left in the car to be pretty hard to recover once the car was returned.
I hope these tips will guide you and will help you choose the right car for your holiday. Expect more tips or if you had some troubles, let us know, maybe we can then avoid those situations.
Ever since you came to the outskirts of town, where the royal train greets an old locomotive still stationed reminiscent of centuries long past the ‘pungency maximum‘ was 60 km / h as written on the locomotive.
Royal Station, a small station and gallivant still welcome at the entrance to the royal symbol, the wings of an eagle. Arrived here and admire you more Sinaia and halt the miniature model inside the station and the smallest detail from Sinaia. Ms. welcomes tourists who will delight the little ones asking her to look for birds, young people in the park, people who play, fire truck, sheep and many others that will delight even the big ones discovered so many details in the model.
Not far from the station you can already think you are in one city from another era, recalling Ghica Park XVII, XVIII. A walk in the park, decorated with great attention to detail, with Palace Hotel and Casino Hotel Caraiman your life will shape the image of a royal ... Park-green casino architecture and for the other buildings still whisper of Carol walks with the family.
And because a city can be discovered more comfortable with the car, I recommend renting a car or minibus with EuroCars. You will find a way through in the forest and will guide your steps towards the holy shrine of the Sinai monastery. Holy shrine shelters plenty of history and if you have the opportunity to hear a teacher telling about the monastery will be fascinated, but outside of history remains a place to stay with the holy spirit to pray and not to admire the sight.
Along the same road you will encounter some troubadours who sing your tunes and famous before long you will remain dumbfounded seeing the grandeur of Peles Castle. While you will be hard, better visit the castle began Pelisor. Beyond all the information that you will give your guide, you will create Pelisor image of a castle with 99 rooms where Queen Mary has left a mark of royal life.
After you look delighted Pelisorul will amaze Peles. It creates the impression of a modest castle, beautiful trees that surround him hide his greatness. Arriving in the courtyard of the palace you really believe that Sinaia is a royal city. Grandeur castle from the entrance courtyard, statues are well preserved as evidence, but the interior of the 160 rooms will surely amaze. Detach yourself from what you will guide nice story from each camera, however you will retain only a few architectural styles and several rooms which were important figures such as George Enescu. Here art detail is always present you will need days to see every detail in every room, but beyond greatness castle rooms that depict the unique and luxurious like in 1883, is so well preserved that you will feel you are visiting Carol and looking into the castle, but he is much in his room by climbing on his secret entrances, and the Queen Mary expect to find in a small cinema palace. I talk a lot about the castle, but insignificant words are all he can say besides this castle...
If you think you have seen everything you got remember that visit and George Enescu Memorial House, Tower - slightly above the Pelisor and last but not least Caroli Avenue downtown, where hotels are per square inch, or you can walk around town with little tourist train.
For those passionate natures more than the history, Sinaia offers: ski trails, mountain roads furnished, and cable cars that climb up the quota in 2000.
If I was amazed from watch man can do, how much art created , reached at the mountain vastness I am amazed by how many and how offer pure nature and wild landscape in ours named Romania ... the mighty mountains spring up everywhere, a fresh green trees make you want to stay in the vastness of the landscape that makes you a city story, Sinaia.
As the access roads and railways remain Sinaia road DN1 road, and some information about possible means of transportation you can find below...
Services offered - Alex Hotel Sinaia Restaurant Transylvanian cuisine.
Terrace of 150 seats.
