Visiting Oradea

or9 

 It's been a while since I made an appearance here and let's just say it was a slow transition back to Cluj. I spent a few days alone there, just me and my cat and unfortunately she didn't master the art of photography, so taking photos was out of the question.
After making the apartment squeeky-clean, my lovely flatmates soon appeared and we decided to take a trip to almost-nearby Oradea, near the border with Hungary. I knew it was an interesting city and I wanted to visit it since last Spring, but I never thought I could find so many beautiful, amazing buildings which were onece upon a time, palaces. 
If you are a Art Nouveau fanatic like myself, Oradea is the place to visit. It has so many buildings from that period, a few of them were restored and now they look like gingerbread houses! We did not have time to explore everything I wanted to, but there is always a next time. 
 All I can say is that it appears to be a lovely city, with many many many old houses that I love (I don't think I have ever seen that many, not even in Cluj) and I spent a lovely day despite the cloudy weather and forgetting the fact that I lost the cute pink sweater (and irreplaceable) I had with me. Oh well..

 We even got a chance to visit the Zoo and took dozens of photos of meerkats and felines. Naturally.

Escape the city...into a different one.

 This Sunday we decided to get out of the city to explore a new one nearby (actually I had no idea of this, it came as a surprise, so it was quite a spontaneous thing, which was nice).
 It appeared the good weather was on our side so the day turned out to be a lovely one. We visited Botosani, not a famous city from our country but nonetheless, lovely and it was close to my hometown and what the heck, I never seen it properly before. 

We started the day boating on the cute little lake in the park and we continued visiting toward downtown. I knew tere was an old city somewhere and I really wanted to see it because a person who has an ongoing crush for historical buildings will always be attracted to that. So we went there and I was surprised to see how few people were not only there but in the whole city as well. "Too bad" I thought, because it is a beautiful area that reminded me of Sibiu a bit; but the city was numb as my own hometown as if it was waiting for some event to show up and stir things up a bit. 
We ended the day with a film at the cinema which was delightful and then we went straight home with pleasant memories in our minds. Peaceful days like these are the ones that I'm looking forward the most.

An afternoon stroll

sw9 5 

 It doesn't feel much like September these days, especially at noon; only in the evenings and mornings (since I am not a morning person I can only take my mom's words for granted) you can feel the Autumn chill which is quite lovely. I only began to think about my fall wardrobe, but the minute I go back in Cluj, I will start looking for some cute boots - ones without heel this time - and also some light cardigans, wohooo can't wait! 
This is what I wore yesterday when I met with a friend of mine to grab a bite and some coffee, and I realise now that I am wearing my mom's old clothes which I took custody of, isn't that funny? 
That happens when you get bored by your own clothes.

 Enjoy your day as best as you can! sw9 4 sw9 2 sw9 sw9 3 sw9 6
