I've become a wanderer, a gypsy. Europe is my Avenue. My life, exotic. If I tell you my story, you won't believe it. I carry my house with me, everything I treasure is hidden in my heart, and everything else is in a luggage. And I travel light. I'm going far.

My life has become a travel novel. I am the embodiment of globalization and everything that is good about it. Until a few months ago I lived in a water mill. In France. Owned by a Swiss painter of Polish origin, married to an Austrian. And we were 5 to live there: 2 Russians, an Uzbek married to a French woman (she was living in Uzbekistan at the time) and French with his Romanian girlfriend. And it was a pretty good arrangement. Every day we'd go to school in a Harry Potter like environment, in an Abbey where we met at least 5 other nationalities.

And now, I'm in the Czech Republic, I still have the same French boyfriend . I live in another watermill with Czechs and Bulgarians. And I work in a French company; I speak English every day and talk to people from all over Europe, regularly. For me, globalization is just a watermill.

On top of that I'm in a different place every weekend, in France, the Czech Republic, now I'm going to Bratislava. Next? Who knows?

It's what I've always wanted, a life full of excitement, travel, interesting people, good food. And I have it now but all I'm thinking about at this moment is to go home for a few days in August. And make my life simpler. Why can't we be completely satisfied?

On top of all my dreams of going away, I'm homesick. I guess this is a sort of wanderlust as well. And I’m happy with this and grateful for all the things in my life.


  1. Wow, sounds pretty interesting and exciting. We should meet up for a coffee sometime and chat some more about being homesick although life's going well where we are :-)

  2. Si mie mi-e dor de tine si abia astept sa vii in august... Uff, macar ai o viata exotica... Have fun la BRATISLAVA POooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooop & HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuug

  3. Wow, I wish I had money to travel around like you are! Consider youself very lucky!
    That house looks haunted and quite scary by the way... how do you travel around europe? aeroplane? train? car?

    Like your blog ! Congrat!


    :) My blog:

  4. Wow. @Lucia, If you're in Bucharest around August 4th, we might have a chance to meet up. Or you can come to the Czech Republic.

    @The Wonder Seeker: Si mie mi-e dor de tine, abia astept sa ne vedem si sa depanam amintiri. Din fericire o sa fiu intr-o cu totul alta stare ca data trecuta :) Deci o sa fiu o companie muuuult mai placuta. Si stii ca eu va invidiez ca aveti un pic mai multa rutina si siguranta in viata. Pupici.

    @Del C: I don't have the money, trust me. But I make the best with what I have. I usually travel by car, bus, train, some times a combination of these, rarely by plane(costs more, waiting is longer, far from the city center, so you have to pay other stuff).

    I'll write something about my traveling philosophy. Right now I travel mostly in The Czech Republic as my boyfriend lives in another town. My other journeys are to see friends, mostly from my Master's.

    And the house photo, I found it somewhere (don't remember where so I can put a link). It's pretty spooky but it reminded me of the watermill I lived in. (And I liked it was dark, contrasted to the one above)

    Pupici* for everyone.

    *That's kisses, in Romanian

  5. Sunt in Ro pe 4 august, teoretic. Si sunt din Ploiesti, deci nu mi-ar fi greu. Mi-ar face placere, tinem legatura si vedem atunci aproape de sosire. Sunt sigura ca ai de vazut multa lume si de facut multe lucruri, asa e cand vii acasa :-). Toate bune!
