5 Tips for Making the Best of the Cold

Embrace the Cold I never thought that I would put "Embrace" & "Cold" in a sentence together. Me? A Floridian who always donned on a jacket at the cusp of  the slightest chill. What was once my breaking point of 70 °F / 21.11 °C, is now actually a warm day this time of year, boy have … Continue reading 5 Tips for Making the Best of the Cold

Travel – Putting Romania on Map

After perusing my news feed I stumbled upon this “shared article” from “Shift2Drive.blog” and I enjoyed what I read.

Carla lives here in Braşov, Romania. I enjoyed the video and the way she describes this country. I hope that you all enjoy her post too.

Tell A Story - Be a Voice

We all love to travel and share our experiences. This post is about the heart of Romania which still needs to be discovered and heard. A Romania that is vivid, social and in a great expansion.

When it comes to making travelling plans and going places, each of us has two choices: The first option is to go outside of the country you are living, in order to discover new cultures, or to remain in your own country to try to amplify your current knowledge and understand better the place you are coming from.

Romania offers so much and even tho I am half Hungarian, I am willing and excited to find out as much as I can about Romania until I can move to the next country. I have been traveling since I was young and so far I have visited amazing places like Hawaii and Tenerife. Bright…

Transalpina is NOT the name of this donkey. 😁 It is, however, one of the highest roads in the Carpathian Mountains here in Romania. The highest point of this adventure sits at 2,145 meters (7,037 ft) versus 2,042 meters (6,699 ft) of the Tranfagarasan roadway which I shared with you all earlier. Transalpina was said to have been built … Continue reading Transalpina

I mentioned before that I worked at Olive Garden for 17.5 years as a manager. What I did not mention, as of yet, was something that rang true for me and/or any other manager on duty at the time. Your team is what can make or break you! This is true in real life as … Continue reading Team

Put God First

When you learn to "Put God First" in your life everything else starts to make sense. You no longer need other people, things, money, or adventures to make you happy because you have Him. I immensely enjoy when I see someone like Denzel sharing their faith. He has the ability to touch lives, making them … Continue reading Put God First

There are many times in life when we live miraculously. Maybe we beat a record that we thought we couldn't, follow a diet that we thought would be impossible, get into a relationship that we thought was out of our league, or … Continue reading Miraculous Monday

I’m Selfish

This is a sad truth of mine, that I was not willing to admit to myself for such a long time. My problem is the fact that I worry about what the future brings and how it will affect me.... when I know that God's word says don't worry about yourself and simply focus your … Continue reading I’m Selfish

You Can!

This short phrase is a motivational message that still remains with me, ingrained in my psyche, now and forever more! The two simple words "You Can" are so powerful if you are trying to do things with your life. Call it "a blast from the past", "a flashback", or "a fond memory"; this phrase from my … Continue reading You Can!


Breath-taking views surround these 71 miles (114 kilometers) of pure bliss called Transfagarasan.

The highest point of this roadway is at Lake Balea, which is a majestic world wander … Continue reading Transfagarasan
