A date in Munich

     Nothing made me happier than the period of time I have spent with my husband while in Europe. He obviously couldn't stay the entire 3 months like I did, because, well...someone's got to work!   :)

      We were together for a while though, both in Arad and Munich and it just made me feel complete.  I am never more 'myself', active, motivated and full of life then when we are together. We love chatting, envisioning our plans for the future, walking, watching the world pass by, together.

     This one day in Munich, we took advantage of Nina and Ismael's kind offer to watch Nalia and hopped a couple of blocks away for a mid-day, old-fashioned date. It was lovely!

Hello Munich!

     Ah...our time in Munich came and went and as usual...I am way behind on posting on the blog. Will get right to it. I'll promise to find no more excuses...

     So...back to our post... Munich was a great time! We really enjoyed the great weather,  walked (a lot!), met all of our friends, visited family, had a lot of ice-cream, got to go to the park, biergarten, playgrounds (and biergarten's playground, ha!),  shopped a lot, went to the cinema, ate a lot of goodies my mother-in-law prepared for us...

     And Nalia surely had a lot of fun, she went by the Isar, fed the ducks and swans, made new friends, she got more attached to her aunties and uncles, loved going with the b-bahn and saying hello and bye to everyone!! She tried so many different things, I could see her noticing new things like the big old trees and the pebbles at the playground and all the new sounds around her. She definitely experienced different emotions. It's just so beautiful to watch her grow and develop so much, but at the same time it scares me a bit as I am constantly feeling a bit unprepared for the next stage around the corner...

      One thing I really must say tho, I am so impressed with her for being such a good and patient little girl... She amazes me all the time! She is so sweet, happy and generous, a good listener and a gentle, caring little soul. I love her to the moon and back and I a so extremely happy I get to be her momma!

      I hope you are ready for about a ton of pictures we took all in the span of 1 day!

 ^^she quickly made a new friend, this is Imani, who's hand she wouldn't let go

Hot day in the city (Arad)

     This was one of the last days we spent together in Arad before all of us left for Munich. We took a short walk with our friends, on the Mures river, enjoying each others company. Tried out the children's play area, walked on the new bridge going to 'Strandul Neptun' and snapped some pictures along the way.

     I can't help but feel all the feels about my hometown. There's some serious chemistry going on between us this time around. I love it in every season, you have a little bit of everything here, I felt inspired to do things, to read, to listen to certain people, certain music,  it made me feel young again, it made me hopeful and motivated for the future, makes me want to participate, to change, most importantly, my little girl's happiness just took over everything else and I couldn't help but see it as an amazing place to raise a family.

     Sure, there are plenty of things to improve. But this city has an amazing foundation and it's people are incredibly connected (in time of need).  It felt so good to be here... So good in fact that we decided to postpone flying to Abu Dhabi by an entire extra month and return to spend more time together in Arad until the end of September. But it was good bye for now and off to Germany...

Budapest (part II)

   
      I've traveled to Budapest before, but for some reason it's always been a one day stop... I can tell you right now, that is not enough!

     The city is absolutely beautiful, people are cool, food is awesome and reasonably priced and they must have the best furnished cafes and restaurants I've seen!

     Because when you are bored and have too much time on your hands, you grab your camera, a friend and head out into the city to test out and practice your photography...  Extra fun guaranteed!!   :)
























Arad, my love...
