Hi! My name is Mirela, as you may have seen in all the articles on this travel blog.

Born and raised in Bucharest, the Capital of Romania, I’ve always been fond of traveling and I have to thank my parents for instilling this passion in me. Ever since I was a small child, they helped me discover the beauties of my own country. And, when I was in the third grade, they took me on my first road trip through Europe, exploring bits of Hungary, Austria, Germany, France, and Italy. Our travels continued over the years and the continent, feeding my hunger for novelty.

Today, however, I travel mostly with my fiancé, Mathieu. He also enjoys visiting new places, which is also what brought him to Romania, his home-away-from-home for the past two years. This is what lead to the two of us meeting each other, in the end. And since we crossed paths, in March 2017, we’ve visited over 10 countries together (yes, including Romania and France, where we’re still taking turns in being the guide).

Mid-December 2018 I quit my job as a Digital, Events and Adult English Courses Coordinator, in order to join Mathieu on his next work adventures. We were supposed to go to Paris for a few months starting with the end of February. But apparently he is needed more in Romania, so we’re staying here for another year. 

At the moment, we are focusing on sailing courses and getting our permits. The plan is to get a twelve-meter boat to sail the Mediterranean sea from port to port for our honeymoon. We thought about this when we were visiting Piraeus, and we stopped to drink some sangrias next to a marina. It was kind of spur of the moment, but the idea stuck.

So here’s to the future and come what may!
