Finding the proper tune with new partners on an uneasy topic

Finding a dose of oxygen in Oxygen roof top bar at Radisson in great company.

for an immersion into pure warm Summer and Sun filled days with feet spoiled by the freshness of the sea 

Yoga on sunrise on my balcony

the fun of feeding birds on the beach

the hilarous coffee drinking pidgeons, when waiters and customers were not looking. They were quick- managed no picture :). No prints. No proof šŸ˜‰

letting us discover the other you up the mountain 

the gorgeous Japanese garden, where all has a meaning of itsown and the city noise resigns in front of the serene spirit of stone lamps

a little trip to Africa in the Le Jardin de la Petite Afrique

a special vanille monegasque-framboise macaron. 

snacks at Costa, the royal supplier; and its unforgetful pecan cookies

the walks on your old city narrow streets

a special cafe gourmand

getting lost in multiple passages and the joy of finding our way just around the corner

the generosity of plant growers, offering baby-plants to anyone wanting one

Merci Mont Sainte Odile

Family time: a walk in the park

Standard

Pourtales Park is at 10 minute bus ride from my home. Yet, our busyness kept it miles away. So one Sunday morning on a beautiful September day, we made it. What a lovely discovery! 

The Palace made it through wars and was reinvented and rescued with private investment by Dr. Leibrecht and his family. It is a hotel and an events venue today. 

The Park’s trails take you to places with surprises. Thanks to my kid’s previous school trip, we knwe what to look for. But it is also fun if you just walk and let the Park reveal itself. Portales: a place where nature meets art. 
  

Multumesc Chisinau

Standard

for the most amazing welcome, with wide open arms of people i know and worked with years ago. They still recognise Oxana-redhead-blond- redhead again :). 

For my dearest friends always close by and who filled my home with the smell of home-made bread for me to take home (my other home).  

The change i saw and the admiration i took with me for what brave people do, in spite of lots of adversities. 

Precious time with a dear friend in recovery. She tought me to slow down right when i needed it most. 

Your Autumn mornings colours and my slight sense of envy to sleeping pidgeons on my way to early morning meetings. 

The fun of carousel meetings from eight to eight and the plea of my brain to keep going to learn more. With a deepest sense of gratitude to the best interpreters, who went above and beyond their regular duties. 

The most amazing, kind and intelligent team of consultants on a mission. And the out-of-meetings moments we shared when i could show them bits of my city. 

Fulfilling my need to see sunrises from my window while sipping my coffee. 

Witnessing my brave cleaning lady taking her faith into her hands and going into entrepreneurship. She is my hero. 

The most efficient and discrete plumber who came at 10pm to fix my water hitting. It was perhaps my team members little prayer, as they risked sharing their hotel bathroom with me šŸ˜‰

Thank you Munich

a pleasant walk in your zoo

the wonders of the Deutsches Museum, where we learned by playing about science and progress, from mining to astronomy:
