Since we’ve already written about so many places we’ve seen, we thought it would be a good idea to put them all on a Google Map.
This spring is quite freakish, changing rapidly from a hot season, sun and temperature over 25°C to a cold season, snow and -10°C, but waiting for the summer is not a valid option. Somewhere at the middle of March we said we should experience the first road trip with our 17 months baby. The forecast warned us that we will have changing weather, so we planned for a 2 days history trip not too far from Sibiu and we chose to follow the route Sibiu – Geoagiu – Deva – Sarmizegetuza Regia – Sibiu, a 350 km trip.
Although we’ve been many times on the road, driving to Bucharest, it is only this spring that we considerend having a stop in Târgoviște, for an important history lesson about medieval times.
Among guitar aficionados, they don’t come much heavier than acid-drenched enigma Eddie Hazel. A founding father of Funkadelic and responsible for the blazing ”Maggot Brain” solo, he released just one album.
A concentrated dose of guitar-driven psychedelic soul and loping funk-rock, Game, Dames And Guitar Thangs(1977) was co-produced by George Clinton and features the full Mothership crew.
An amazing book on the condition of women in India, written by journalist Elisabeth Bumiller after living for 3 and a half years in India.
We stayed for 2 days in the Garden Route area, hoping for a nice weather that would allow us to have a proper swim in the sea and some sun-bathing. We were a bit unfortunate and got some rain and clouds instead, but luckily the area has a lot to offer even on a bad weather.
Cape Town was one of the best parts of our trip in South Africa. Maybe because we did some of the things we like the most, staying out in the nature and also enjoying a nice swim, with a perfect summer weather.
Johannesburg was our first encounter with South Africa and I have to admit that this city made the earth tremble a bit under my feet, a situation and a reality that rarely happened to me before, at least not at this scale.
