Timisoara in Transylvania, Romania

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.

Stockholm <3

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.

The Belgian city Leuven is home to the famous Belgian beer Stella Artois. De Hoorn Brewery used to be a brewery for Stella Artois. It was founded in 1923. The historical building is protected thanks to its special meaning to the Artois monumental brewery and its unique construction structure. In 1926 Stella Artois was brewed for the first time.
