Voilà. I went last time to vibrant Strasbourg in a very warm weekend in February that made me think Spring is on its way. I remember I walked on a street called Rue de Printemp (Spring street) near the European Parliament. There is something romantic walking in any French city, but especially one with the name of a season.Continue reading “Bonsoir Printemps, Strasbourg”
Art inspired from Romanian mythology and traditions and carved in wood, stone and later bronze. From Târgu-Jiu and Bucharest to Paris, via Munich until New York.

Many books and travel guides were already written about Paris. Is hard to add some new relevant content, so I will just write my raw thoughts of the city about the best 7 decisions from 7 trips I took while in Paris and the ultimate cliché, since I can’t resist those.
An event that started in Paris is now almost everywhere in the world. Every year, around the 18th of May is celebrated the International Museums day. Galleries and more other cultural places join every year the “Museum night”. The way we perceive the art perhaps is the way we perceive life. Our opinion about the same gallery exhibition can be similar or extremely different, even by us in different periods of our life.Continue reading “International Museums Day”
