Ski Trip | Brasov

Zilele treceau, iar eu incepeam sa cred din ce in ce mai mult ca vacanta aceasta de iarna voi ramane pana la sfarsit in aglomeratia si zgomotul Bucurestiului. Lucrurile, insa, nu s-au dovedit a fi intocmai astfel, caci am primit o invitatie spontana la Brasov, pe care nu imi trecea prin gand sa o refuz.

Bagajele facute in graba…o imbratisare lui tata, un pupic mamei…si, am plecat.

Imediat ajunsa acolo, privelistea de iarna brasoveana m-a impresionat, oferindu-mi doza de inspiratie de care aveam nevoie pentru a-mi rezuma multimea de ganduri ce urmeaza sa v-o impartasesc.

ENGLISH:

The days were passing by and I began to think that I won’t be going nowhere this winter break. It actually wasn’t the way I pictured it as I soon got a spontaneous invitation to Brasov which I couldn’t refuse.

I quickly packed my things…a hug for dad and a kiss for mum…and bye, bye, Bucharest.

As soon as I got there, the beautiful winter view caught my attention, giving me that dose of inspiration I needed to tell you all about my experience there.

Se pare ca nu eram de ajuns de incarcata, incat a trebuit sa incalt si claparii pe care aveam sa ii dau jos abia dupa 4 ore lungi.

After two days of ice-skating and playing in the snow, it was the time for me to dress in my most worn clothes, layer over layer, until I looked like a full-on-dressed penguin. As though I wasn’t overdressed, I had to put my skiing boots on which I could only remove after 4 long hours.

DSC00344IMG_3513Nemaipracticand ski-ul de anul trecut, nu mi-a fost destul de la indemana sa debutez, dar bineinteles am luat in calcul si faptul ca sunt incepatoare si nu mi-am dat sperante prea mari de la inceput. Exact cum am prezis, la prima cazatura am inceput sa plang, mai degraba as spune ca am inceput sa bocesc din frustrare si nervi. Schiurile mi s-au desprins si mi-a fost foarte greu sa le atasez apoi, iar eu stiam sa schiez si partia era chiar foarte usor de parcurs. De fapt lucrul care ma stresa cel mai tare imi era gandul, fiind o fire destul de perfectionista, spuneam ca nimic nu imi va sta in cale in ziua aceea.

As I haven’t skied at all since last year, I wasn’t so comfortable starting, but of course I took in mind that I was an amateur and I didn’t give myself too much hope. Exactly as I predicted, when I first fell I started ugly crying out of frustration. My skis fell off and it was really hard to reattach them and the thing is that I knew how to ski and the ski slope was really easy. Actually, the thing that bothered me the most was my thought, as a perfectionist, that everything will go as I have planned.IMG_3518IMG_3498IMG_3503

Cum din orice greseala inveti, asa si eu: am inceput, am cazut, am plans, dar m-am ridicat. M-am ridicat si mi-am spus ca pot sa generez viteza, ca pot sa controlez situatia si ca pot sa ma si distrez in acelasi timp. Spre surprinderea mea, chiar a mers acest indemn din interior. As minti daca as spune ca totul a mers perfect si nu am mai cazut. Am mai cazut de multiple ori. Singura diferenta este ca de fiecare data ma ridicam imediat si incepeam sa rad de propria impiedicatura. Prin urmare, am dedus ceva ce pana atunci nu intelegeam, un lucru important pe care sper sa mi-l amintesc si pe viitor.

As from every mistake you make you learn something, so did I: I started, I fell, I cried, but I got up. I got up and I told myself that I could control the speed and I could have fun in the same time. In my surprise, this inner thought actually worked. I would lie if I said that everything went perfectly fine and I didn’t fall after that. I fell multiple times. The only difference is that every time I fell, I then got up and started laughing. In conclusion, I somehow demonstrated myself a thing that until then I didn’t understand, which I hope I’ll remember in the future.

Nu conteaza de cate ori cazi, ci de cate ori te ridici zambind.

It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, but how many times you get up and smile.


Urmatoarea zi, extenuata, cu febra musculara si lipsa de somn, am avut parte de un bine meritat pranz la Brasov, respectiv la restaurantul Belvedere.

Nu am ce spune mai mult decat mancare foarte gustoasa si aspect deosebit, personal respectos si primitor, privelistea de sus a Brasovului pudrat cu zapada proaspata.

The next day, tired, sore and sleep deprived, I had a well-deserved lunch in Brasov, at Belvedere restaurant.

I don’t know what to say more than excellent food and incredible aesthetic, respectful staff and the breath-taking view of Brasov from the top.

Am optat pentru un outfit lejer, dar in acelasi timp cu o tenta de eleganta, pentru a se incadra in stilul localului. In plus, urma un drum de trei ore inapoi spre Bucuresti si nu imi doream sa ma simt incomoda in vreun fel.

I went for a casual outfit, that in the same time brings a bit of elegance to match the style of the restaurant. More, next I had to travel back to Bucharest (3 hours in the car) and i didn’t want to feel uncomfortable in any way.

Ca sa concluzionez as spune ca aceste patru zile petrecute la Brasov mi-au fost mai mult decat de ajuns pentru a ma incarca de energie, putere si inspiratie sa imi continui anul intr-o nota productiva, totusi fara sa uit sa ma distrez si sa apreciez fiecare moment.

To conclude, I would say that these 4 days which I have spent in Brasov were more than enough got me to gather lots of energy, strength and inspiration to continue my year on a productive note, although without forgetting to have fun and appreciate every moment.
