Discover Romania – ep. 6

I wanted this year not to miss the “autumn colors” in the Romanian mountains, but somehow (mainly because we were cold during those days) we managed to miss the trip to the mountains when the colors were at their peak (late October). But, things were not completely lost and when our friend from Madrid announced us of their visit to Romania, we knew that we will get them in the mountains to do the trip we already wanted to...

Discover Romania – ep. 5

August was the month of our holiday this year. In the past few years we had all of our holidays outside Romania, in other countries. This year, we chose to travel one more time by car in a tour inside our beautiful country (we did same thing last time when we bought a new car in 2005). And so, because we had once again a new car (the Sonata we bought couple of months ago), we chose to visit some places we’ve never been to...

Discover Romania – ep. 4

This time, I will show you some unique natural phenomenon for the entire Europe.

Hot water mixes with mud and surface deposits. They can be found near Berca, Buzau county, Romania  ...

Discover Romania – ep. 3

The Danube Delta is the second largest river delta in Europe, after the Volga Delta, and is the best preserved on the continent. I’ve been several times to visit the Delta and every time I found “her” very wild. A land of “World Heritage Sites”, it remained this way because of the harsh conditions for living. These days you can find modest conditions for accommodation, but it’s best to go sleep in...

Discover Romania – ep. 2

Since the first episode was about the greatest driving road in the world (as car show TopGear said it loud and clear), this second episode is still about a road that we have it here in Romania. It’s the DN 7c, also known as Transalpina. It is reaching higher peaks than Transfagarasanu road, it’s even more spectacular, but until now was very hard to reach and use, since there was little to no asphalt. We crossed it our...

Discover Romania – ep. 1

Because I’ve traveled a lot in the past and I still enjoy travelling, and also because a lot of foreign friends are asking me to do so, I’ve decided to post some photos from the tourist destinations here in Romania. I will post only photos and no travel directions, just to stir you up. In case someone is interested, I will provide as much as I can information about how to reach these zones, over email or in the comment...

O lume minunata

Am inceput sa scriu acest articol prin Iulie anul trecut. De atunci tot zic sa il termin si nu reusesc, pentru ca va iesi ceva monstruos de lung. Asa ca mi-am propus sa il public in cateva episoade, la fel cum am facut cu proiectul “Discover Romania“. Va rog share daca va place! “… E-o lume minunata in care veti gasi Numai copii O lume cu mult soare si mii de jucarii Pentru copii In lumea cu povesti si flori...

Sony EYE-AF – how to set and use it on your camera

EN follows. RO: Versiunea in limba Romana este aici.

We are talking of course about: Sony’s EYE-AF feature First of all, what is EYE-AF? The easiest answer is this: when the camera detects a face, if we press the EYE-AF button, then it will focus...

Sony A7 III – a new milestone of mirrorless systems

Sony A7 III – a new milestone of mirrorless systems Since I’ve heard about the launch of the new full-frame mirrorless camera, the Sony A7 III I’ve giggled in pure joy, but remained a little reticent thinking it might be too good to be true. And I mean Sony A7 III comes with all the goodies from it’s bigger brothers, the Sony A9 (check my review here) and Sony A7R III, all of these in a very competitive price...
