Timisoara is a colorful and vivid city in Western Romania. It has a history of over 1000 years and the city has the perfect combination of traditional and modern culture. It’s also Romania’s famous university city, making this little city vivid and energetic, featuring a buzzing nightlife.
When I was in Timisoara, people told me it’s often referred as Little Vienna because its beautiful architectures and art activities. Back then I was not that interested in museums and art galleries. But I did notice there were a lot of amazing architectures with different styles: Baroque, Roman Catholic, Serbian Orthodox cathedrals. etc.
I visited Timisoara as part of my Balkan trip and it turned out to be one of my favorite cities in Eastern Europe. Today I take my dear Steemit friends to this beautiful Romanian city.

I knew almost all my friends here in Belgium from Dutch classes, so we are from everywhere: from Zimbabwe to Colombia.

I’ve been to Stockholm twice and fell in love with the city. Scandinavia is a cool peninsula in many ways, the minimalist fashion and interior design, those cool hipster latte pappas that you see in Stockholm’s Sodermalm island (Latte pappas: lucky guys who enjoy their long paid parental leave, walking their kids while grabbing a coffee). I’m a foodie when regarding travelling, Sweden is not such a great place for foodies, yet I find its capital extremely attractive. I remember people are so friendly there, even the Roma ladies on the street. They would greet me friendly, waving at me, “Hi hi”, instead of those I met in Brussels North station who shouted at me, with their hands touching my sandwich, “Give me your sandwich!” Also I love the “Fika” concept when you have a coffee and pastries with friends.
