Cum mi-am petrecut sfarsitul de vara

E clar – cel mai mult imi place sa exagerez. Sa mananc trei portii dintr-un fel de mancare nou descoperit, sa golesc cateva sticle din noul vin preferat, sa ascult un album pe repeat pana-mi tiuie urechile, sa-mi umplu dressingul de rochii bleumarin daca mi se pare ca dark blue is the new black sau alte tampenii facute in exces.

Vara asta mi-am inceput-o cu un scurt weekend gourmet la Valea Verde, in Cund. Si cum de Transilvania sunt indragostita de mult, luna septembrie am incheiat-o with a bang. Mai exact cu ceva mai mult de 3.000 de kilometri plimbandu-ma din sat in sat, descoperind case frumoase, dealuri terasate, oameni buni, rasfaturi de tot felul, de la biblioteci pline la mese luate in varf de deal, la vanatori de trufe in padurile de stejar.

Pana sa povestesc pe larg despre ele, o sa las experientele astea sa se aseze putin. Asa ca va las cu niste postcard-uri din vacanta mea de sfarsit de vara.
