Casieri sau clienti care ne enerveaza / Cashiers or customers playing with our nerves

Este in natura omeneasca sa ne enervam. Repede si din orice majoritatea. Merita? E corect?

It is a human characteristic to get angry. Quickly and for any reason, the majority. Is it worthy? Is it fair?

Exista anumite domenii in care aceste lucruri se intampla frecvent si categorii de oameni descrisi mai degraba ca enervanti si irascibili. Iar aici putem aminti cu siguranta functionarii publici, casieri sau lucratorii comerciali. Dar ei de ce se comporta asa? Or avea motive?

There are several domain in which these kind of things happen often and there are categories of people described as annoying and bad-tempered. And here we can surely mention public workers, cashiers or commercial workers. But why do they act so? Do they have any reasons?

Teoria mea este ca da, au motive. Nu toti clientii sunt politicosi, intelegatori si rabdatori, la fel cum nu toti cei amintiti in categoriile de mai sus sunt modele demne de urmat. Dar sa nu uitam ca uneori, noi ca si clienti luam prea in serios zicala ”Clientul nostru, stapanul nostru”. Nu cred ca este corect sa ne comportam urat sau sa le vorbim de sus celor care ne servesc doar pentru ca noi lasam niste bani in acele locuri. Da, lasam bani, dar luam si ceva la schimb. Iar ei, ca si noi, isi castiga existenta muncind.

According to my theory, they do. Not all the customers are polite, understanding and patient, as not all those reminded in the categories above mentioned are positive models. But, please let’s don’t forget that sometime, we as clients take too serious the saying ”Our customer, our commander”. I do not think is fair to behave badly or to act like we are superior to those who serve us just because we are paying some money in those places. Yes, we pay some money but we get something in exchange. And them, as we do, are working to pay for their living.

De obicei, clientii sau cei care au nevoie de serviciile unui functionar public au tendinta de a ii acuza pe acestia si de a le cere socoteala pentru orice nu le convine sau nu este chiar asa cum trebuie sa fie, chiar daca este in concordanta cu anumite reguli prestabilite. Atunci cand sunt nemultumiti ne strigam pasul in fata primei persoane pe care o vedem si asta nu este intotdeauna corect.

Usually, customers or citizens that need the services of a public worker have the tendency to blame them and ask them explanations for everything they do not agree with or is not as it is supposed to be, even if it is according to some pre-established rules. When we aren’t satisfied we react towards the first person we see and this isn’t always fair.

Tocmai de aceea consider ca anumiti casieri sau functionari se grabesc sa te repezeasca in ideea ca tu oricum te vei lua de ei si le vei reprosa lor ca marfa nu e cum trebuie pe raft sau ca legile statului roman sunt in opinia ta de rahat. Si atunci, ce mai au de pierdut?

That is why I consider that some cashiers or public workers are trying to rush you up considering that you will anyway blame them for something or you will question them about the goods that aren’t presented as you expected or about the laws of the Romanian State that are according to you shitty. And then, what do they have to lose?

Mentionez ca nu unii oameni chiar nu au darul de a lucra cu publicul, insa nu sta in puterea noastra ca cetateni sau clienti sa decidem daca ei ar trebui sa faca asta sau nu. Asta daca nu esti genul super reclamant, care nu da o a doua sansa omului si faci reclamatii peste reclamatii si sesizari peste sesizari.

I want to mention that I agree upon the fact that not all the people are gifted enough to work with the public, but is not on us to decide as customers or citizens if they should do it or not. This, if you aren’t the super claimer type, or a person that does not give a second chance to a person and you will complain a lot about a certain behavior.

Noi toti ar trebui sa invatam sa luam fiecare om in parte ca o entitate unica si sa nu ii judecam pentru fapte pe care nu le-au comis. Atat noi, cat si cei de dincolo de ghiseu sau banda trebuie sa avem mai multa rabdare, sa ne respectam si sa zambim mai des. Amabilitatea nu costa.

All of us, we should learn to treat even human being as an unique entity and not to judge them for facts that they did not do. We, but also those behind the desk or counter, we should have more patience, respect each other more and smile often. Amiability does not cost.

Am vrut sa astern gandurile acestea dupa ce sora mea mi-a spus de niste patanii de la munca, amenintari si alte cele care nu au nici o valoare, caci ea a actionat comform procedurii interne. Are ea vreo vina? Nu, dar si eu si tu poate intr-o zi am vorbit urat sau ne-am enervat pe oamenii care de fapt ne ajutau pentru ceva ce nu depindea de ei…

I just wanted to share my thoughts related to the subject after my sister told me about some things that happened to her at work, threatening and other unimportant things, as she acted according to the internal regulation. Does she have any fault? No, but maybe me or you, once we mistreated people that were actually helping us even if it was not their responsibility… 

Sa fim mai buni!

Let’s be better persons!

Tinerete in actiune / Youth in action / Jeunesse en action

Am profitat de mini-vacanta si am petrecut cateva zile minunate la Reghin, alaturi de familia mea. In acest timp am scotocit in locul unde avem noi amintirile adunate, un garaj, care nu a fost folosit de peste 15 ani in acest scop, devenit intre timp camera pentru amintiri.

We took advantage of the short holiday and we spent some lovely days in Reghin, with my family. During this time we looked into the place where our memories are gathered, a garage, which has not been used with this purpose for more than 15 years and it became meanwhile room for memories.

Ajunge insa cu indicatiile, sa trecem la subiect. Am gasit CD-ul pe care l-am primit de la simpaticul Davy, coordonatorul unei frumoase actiuni, parte a unui proiect european din care am facut parte in 2008.

Enough with the indications, let’s get to the subject. I found the CD that we received from the very nice Davy, the coordinator of a beautiful action, part of an European project that I was part of in 2008.

A fost amuzant si placut in acelasi timp sa ma uit cu sotul meu la videourile filmate atunci. Am ras de mutrita mea de adolescenta, de modul in care ma imbracam si de cum ma mai strambam.

It was funny and pleasant in the same time to watch the videos taken then with my husband. We laughed together when looking at my teenager face, we laughed about the way I used to dress and about the funny faces I was making.

La sfarsit mi-a spus ca este mandru de mine si de faptul ca inca de ”tanara” m-am implicat in astfel de proiecte. Adevarul e ca si eu sunt! Am avut parte de atatea experiente frumoase, am cunoscut oameni minunati si mi-am creat amintiri pentru o viata!

At the end he told me he is proud of me and my participation in these kind of project even in my ”youth”. The truth is I am also proud! I had so many beautiful experiences, I met so many wonderful people and I created lifetime memories!

Ca sa va spun pe scurt despre ce a fost vorba in acest proiect, o sa amintesc faptul ca am fost 4 grupuri de tineri proveniti din Romania, Portugalia, Germania si Franta. Am petrecut impreuna aproximativ 10 zile, in minunatul orasel Feyzin, de langa Lyon, in Franta. Treaba noastra era sa pregatim un spectacol, in care folosindu-ne de muzica, dans si putina actorie sa ne integram fiecare in momentul pregatit de alt grup, pentru a sublinia ideea de toleranta si unitate! Cred ca ne-a iesit foarte bine!

To make a summary about the project, I will mention that we were 4 groups of teenagers from Romania, Portugal, Germany and France. We spent together approx. 10 days, in the beautiful city of Feyzin, next to Lyon, in France. Our ”job” was to prepare a show in which by using the music, the dance and a little bit of acting, we had to get involved in each group’s moment, in order to underline the idea of tolerance and unity! I think we were very successful! 

De cate ori ma gandesc la acele momente zambesc, caci fiecare experienta de acest gen m-a ajutat sa evoluez si sa ma formez ca persoana! Voi lasa pozele sa va spuna mai multe despre ceea ce am trait noi in Franta!

Every time I think about those moments I smile, because every experience similar to this one helped me evolve and shape my character! I will let the pictures ”tell” you more about what we lived in France!

Un an de cand am plecat din Turcia / An year passed since I left Turkey

A trecut deja un an de cand am plecat din Turcia. A trecut repede? Da, foarte repede. Anul acesta a fost poate cel mai intens si cel mai surprinzator an din viata mea, anul in care m-am redescoperit si am invatat multe despre oameni si viata.

An year passed already since I left Turkey. Did it pass fast? Yes, very fast. This year was maybe the most intense and surprising year of my life, the year during which I rediscovered myself and I learnt many things about people and life.

Imi lipseste Turcia? Da, imi lipseste uneori, dar cred ca acest lucru se datoreaza in principal experientelor placute avute acolo, ci nu neaparat tarii din punct de vedere geografic. Pot sa spun in schimb ca unii oameni de acolo imi lipsesc extrem de mult.

Do I miss Turkey? Yes, I miss it sometimes, but this happens mostly because of the pleasant experiences I had there and because of the country in relation with geographical aspects. Although, I can tell that I miss badly some people.

Am invatat multe in Turcia si tot ce am trait acolo constituie cu siguranta cea mai deosebita perioada din viata mea de om singur, pana la intemeierea familiei mele. In Turcia am plans cel mai mult, am ras si mai mult, am fost dezamagita, am fost apreciata, am cunoscut oameni cu toate aspectele lor mai placute sau mai putin placute si am trait ceva diferit.

I learnt many things in Turkey and everything I lived there is for sure the most special period of my single person life, up to the moment I started my own family, with my husband. In Turkey I cried the most, I laughed even more, I was disappointed, I was appreciated, I met people with all their pleasant and less pleasant characteristics and I lived something different.

Turcia nu e doar asa cum se vede la televizor. Turcia e mai profunda de atat. Ai nevoie doar de rabdare, de ochi deschisi larg si de putere pentru a ramane ferm pe pozitii chiar si atunci cand poate nu esti de acord cu lucrurile ce se petrec.

Turkey is not as they show it at TV. Turkey is more profound than that. You need patience, widely open eyes and power to stay still even when you do not agree with some things that are happening.

Turcia e frumoasa, e deosebita, e a doua mea casa.

Turkey is beautiful, is special, is my second home.

Pozele urmatoare vor spune mai multe despre ceea ce am trait eu acolo.

The following pictures will tell more about the things I lived there.

Turkiye seni tum kalbimden seviyorum!

Sibiu sau un oras frumos al Transilvaniei / Sibiu or a beautiful city of Transylvania

Acum doua week-enduri eu si sotul meu am avut parte de o escapada romantica la Sibiu. Dupa ce in saptamana in cauza am fost la distanta intrucat eu aveam treburi de rezolvat la Reghin, orasul meu natal, ne-am dat intalnire plini de dor in Sibiu.

Two week-ends ago, me and my husband had a romantic city-break in Sibiu. After a week of being at distance because I had things to solve in Reghin, my home city, we decided to meet full of missing feelings in Sibiu.

Am profitat de ocazie si am trecut si pe la facultate (Am terminat Masterul in cadrul Facultatii de Drept Simion Barnutiu, Universitatea Lucian Blaga) si m-am odihnit la super guesthouse-ul rezervat de noi in asteptarea sotului.

I took advantage of this opportunity and I went to the faculty (I accomplished my Master at Simion Barnutiu Faculty of Law, Lucian Blaga University) and I rested at the super guesthouse we reserved while waiting for my husband.

Apropo de Guesthouse, vreau sa spun ca noi atunci cand urmeaza sa calatorim ne ghidam in principal dupa criterii ca si curatenia, distanta si pret. Astfel, stiind ca ne vom plimba toata ziua, nu aveam nevoie de cine stie ce fita de cazare. Pentru Guesthouse-ul ales am platit 200 lei (100 lei/ noapte) si am fost foarte multumiti. Camera noastra face parte dintr-o casa gandita in asa fel incat sa te bucuri de tot confortul, fara a deranja pe cineva. Am avut o camera mobilata dragut, cu baie proprie, dar si o bucatarie comuna (3 apartamente puteau beneficia de ea) complet utilata (chiar si masina de spalat). Este vorba despre Guesthouse-ul Adela pe care il recomandam cu drag.

Speaking about the Guesthouse, I would like to state that when we decided about the accommodation while traveling we take in consideration criteria as the cleaning, the distance and the price. So, knowing that we are going to walk around all day long, we did not need some very special conditions in terms of accommodation. For the chosen Guesthouse we paid 200 lei (100 lei/night) and we were very happy with it. Our room was part of a house designed in a manner that would allow you to enjoy the comfort without disturbing anybody else. We had a room with nice furniture, a personal bathroom and a common kitchen (shared with 2 other apartments) fully equipped (there was even a washing machine). We recommend Guesthouse Adela as we were truly satisfied with it.

Am vizitat o gramada de locuri frumoase in Sibiu si am incercat produse ale mai multor localuri. Vineri spre exemplu, am luat masa la restaurantul Weidner. Preturi acceptabile pentru un oras plin de turisti, insa mancarica nu a fost cea mai buna. Totusi, servirea a fost impecabila, desi era un singur!!! ospatar. Ne-am mai plimbat putin prin centru, am ascultat putin jazz caci era festivalul de profil si ne-am promis ca o sa profitam de asta mai mult a doua zi.

We visited many beautiful places in Sibiu and we tried products in various bistros and restaurants. Friday for example, we had dinner at Weidner restaurant. The prices were good considering that the city is full of tourists, but the food wasn’t the best. Although, the serving part was perfect even if there was only one!!! waiter. We walked a bit around the center, we listened to some jazz as the festival was taking place in that week-end and we promised that the second day we will enjoy more.

Sambata a fost o zi plina, telefonul meu si al sotului aratand ca am parcurs nu mai putin de 23 de km pe jos:) Am inceput prin a vizita Turnul Sfatului. Acesta gazduieste periodic expozitii, prezinta machete ale orasului, iar la ultimul etaj ofera o vedere spectaculoasa. Pretul de vizitare este de doar 2 lei.  Am continuat prin a cauta Muzeul de Istorie a Farmaciei. Evident, nu este extrem de bine indicat pe harta turistica ce o aveam noi si era si mai greu de gasit dat fiind faptul ca festivalul de Jazz se derula chiar in fata cladirii unde se afla acesta si toate indicile erau astfel ascunse.  L-am gasit, a fost dragut. Intrarea costa 10 lei si merita daca va plac obiectele vechi, sticlutele mici si colorate si vreti sa aflati mai multe despre tratamentele cu praf de mumie. Puteti sa aflati mai multe de aici.

Saturday was a full day, our phones showing us that we walked no less than 23 km:) We began by visiting the Council Tower. From time to time there are expositions organized there, it presents layouts of the city and the last floor will give you the chance to admire beautiful views. The price for visiting the tower is only 2 lei. We continued by visiting the Museum of Pharmacy. Obviously, it was not very well indicated on the touristic map we had and it was even harder for us as the Jazz festival took place in front of the building were the museum is and all the clues were hidden. We found it, it was cute. The visiting price is 10 lei and it is worth to visit it if you like ancient objects, small and colorful bottles and you want to find out more about the treatments made with mummy powder. You can find out more here.

In timp ce cautam muzeul, am dat peste o fost manastire, acum biserica, denumita Biserica Ursulinelor. Foarte frumoasa, mare, insa nu am reusit sa facem poze, caci inauntru era o nunta 🙂

While we were looking for the Pharmacy Museum, we discovered an ancient monastery, now church, called the Ursuline Church. Very beautiful, but unfortunately we could not take photos as there was a wedding ceremony 🙂

Mai apoi, am vizitat Muzeul de Istorie. Acesta este ceva mai scump, costa 20 de lei intrarea simpla si inca 6 lei daca vrei sa vezi si Tezaurul. Noi am ales sa vedem doar muzeul. Acesta este impartit pe mai multe categorii, este foarte interesant, marisor si merita vizitat bineinteles.

Then, we visited the Museum of History. This one is a bit more expensive to visit, it costs 20 lei for the museum and extra 6 lei for the Treasury. We chose to see only the museum. This is split in different categories, is very interesting, pretty large and is worth to be visited of course.

Plimbandu-ne pe strazi, am vazut si Mitropolia Ardealului, dar si Muzeul Bisericii Evanghelice si a Sasilor din Transilvania. Nu ma asteptam sa fiu asa placut surprinsa de acest muzeu. Foarte multe obiecte expuse, foarte multe informatii interesante. Pretul de vizitare este de 8 lei, insa noi am fost norocosi si l-am vizitat gratuit.

Walking on the streets, we saw also the Ardeal Orthodox Archbishopric but also the Museum of the Lutheran Church and of the Saxons of Transylvania. I did not expected to be so nicely surprised by this museum. Many objects, lot of interesting information. The price for visiting it is 8 lei, but we were lucky and we saw it for free.

Ne-am plimbat prin parc, ne-am bucurat de soare, pana cand a venit ploaia. Asa ca am ales sa ne bucuram de un cappuccino la Pardon Bistro. Preturile bune, ca peste tot, un cappuccino avand pretul de 7 lei. Decorul este insa unul foarte frumos, iar asta iti da o stare de bine. L-am vazut chiar si pe chef, venind si intreband oamenii daca mancarea a fost buna, lucru pe care am mai avut ocazia sa il vad doar in Franta.

We walked in the park, we enjoyed the sun, up to the moment when it began to rain. So, we decided to enjoy a cappuccino at Pardon Bistro. The prices were good, as everywhere, a cappuccino having the price of 7 lei. The place is very well decorated and this makes you feel great. I even saw the chef coming and asking people around if the food is good, thing I have seen before only in France.

Am trecut apoi vis-a-vis, unde se afla Muzeul de Istorie Naturala. Pretul normal este de 13 lei, insa eu cu Marius am obtinut o reducere de 2 lei fiecare pentru ca i-am fost simpatici domnului de acolo. Muzeul este foarte frumos si are mare potential. Eu chiar l-am asemanat cu Muzeul Antipa din Bucuresti. Acesta este insa mai mic, insa foarte bine organizat. Evident, dinozaurii din curte m-au fermecat!!!

Then, we crossed the street, to the Museum of Natural History. The normal visiting price is 13 lei, but me and Marius got a 2 lei/person discount because the man selling tickets loved us. The museum is very nice and it has a huge potential. I even compared it with Antipa Museum from Bucharest. This one is smaller, but very well organized. Obviously I was charmed by the dinosaurs from the yard.

Dat fiind faptul ca era week-endul de dupa evenimentul Noaptea Muzeelor, am putut sa vedem Muzeul de Arta Brukenthal gratuit. In mod normal pretul este de 20 lei pentru Galeria de Arta Europeana si 12 lei pentru Galeria de Arta Romaneasca. Daca sunteti pasionati de pictura, vi-l recomandam cu drag.

As the week-end during which we visited Sibiu followed after the Museum Night event, we had the chance to see the Museum of Art for free. Usually the price is 20 lei for the European Art Gallery and 12 lei for the Romanian Art Gallery. If you are passionate about paintings, we recommend this museum.

Toate sectiile enumerat mai sus sunt de fapt parti ale Muzeului Brukenthal. Acesta are si alte sectii in afara de cele vizitate de noi, iar acestea sunt: Muzeul de Vanatoarea, Galeria de Arta Contemporana dar si Casa Albastra, fiecare cu pretul sau. Ceea ce mi-a placut mult insa este faptul ca pentru 45 de lei poti sa iti achizitionezi un bilet unic de vizitare cu care sa ai acces la toate sectiile muzeului. Noi nu am putut sa le vizitam pe toate, de asta am ales sa platim separat.

All the sections named above are actually parts of the Brukenthal Museum. This has also other section excepting the one we visited and these are: Museum of Hunting, Museum of Contemporary Art and the Restoration-Conservation Laboratory, each with its own price. What I really liked was the fact that for 45 lei you can by a special ticket that will give you access to all the museum’s sections. We could not visit them all, that is why we chose to pay separately for each. 

Am reusit sa vizitam si Catedrala Evanghelica, care este foarte frumoasa, insa ceea ce noua ne-a placut cel mai mult este ca am reusit sa urcam in turnul inalt de 73 de metri. Vederea este senzationala!!! Pretul vzitei este de 5 lei pentru Biserica, la care se mai adauga 3 lei daca doriti sa urcati in Turn. Merita!

We managed to see the Lutheran Cathedral, which is very beautiful, but we really liked was the fact that we managed to climb into the tower with a height of 73 meters. The view is spectacular!!! The price for visiting is 5 lei for the Church and 3 lei more if you want to climb into the tower. Is worth to do it!

Am cinat intr-o crama, foarte frumos amenajata, Chez Annemarie Bistro. Din pacate nu am gasit un website sau o pagina de Facebook pentru a putea sa va ofer mai multe informatii despre acest loc. Oricum, il puteti gasi in timp ce treceti prin Pasajul Scarilor.

We had dinner in a wine cellar, very beautiful decorated, Chez Annemarie Bistro. Unfortunately I could not find a website or a Facebook page in order to offer you more information about the place. Anyways, you can find it while crossing the Stairs Passage.

Apoi am mers la Festivalul de Jazz. A fost o seara spectaculoasa! Am avut ocazia sa ascultam muzica de buna calitate, formatii din strainatate si ne-am indragostit iremediabil de grupul De la Purissima, al carui CD l-am si achizitionat.  Am baut cafea pe gratis, am primit si un tricou pentru ca si-a luat Marius un pachet de tigari si ne-a fost pictat dupa cum am cerut noi de o artista colaboratoare.

Then we went to the Jazz Festival. It was a spectacular evening! We had the opportunity to listen to best quality music, international groups and we felt in love forever with De la Purissima group, whose CD we also bought. We drank coffee for free and we received a t-shirt just because Marius bought a pack of cigarettes and it was painted according to our desires by an artist collaborating with the festival.

Evident ca din graba si din frica de a nu ne prinde ploaia, la plecarea de la festival am cumparat bilete de autobuz pe care nu am mai apucat sa le folosim, caci autobuzul nu mai venea la ora aceea si ne-am intors la cazare pe jos:) Am oferit a doua zi biletele unei fete de la KFC drive care a fost draguta cu noi.

Because of the fact that we were in hurry and afraid that the rain will begin again, when leaving the festival we bought bus tickets that we never used, because the bus was not coming anymore at that hour so we walked to our accommodation:) We offered the tickets the following day to a girl from KFC Drive as she was so nice to us.

Duminica, am vizitat Gradina Zoologica, care nu este foarte mare, dar care este frumoasa mai ales datorita lacului din apropiere. Pretul de vizitare al gradinii este de doar 3 lei. De acolo am plecat la Cisnadie, o localitate din apropiere unde am vazut Biserica Evanghelica si Cetatea ce o inconjoara. Minunat!!! Pretul de vizitare este de 7 lei, dar merita. Unde mai pui ca centrul deschis exclusiv pentru pietoni iti dadea impresia ca esti intr-o alta lume?

On Saturday, we visited the ZOO, which is not very big, but it’s beautiful especially for the nearby lake. The price for visiting is only 3 lei. From there we went to Cisnadie, a place close to Sibiu where we saw the Lutheran Church and the citadel surrounding it. Wonderful!!! The price for visiting it is 7 lei, but is worthy. And what if I tell you that the center is open only for the pedestrians and it gives you the felling of being in another world? 

Singurul lucru care nu ne-a impresionat in Sibiu a fost centrul comercial, insa nici nu mai conteaza caci haine si pantofi gasesti oriunde. Orasul si ceea ce ofera el este de-a dreptul impresionant!!!

The only thing that we were not impressed by in Sibiu was the shopping center, but it does not matter as clothes and shoes can be found everywhere. The city and what it offers is impressive enough!!!

Consultant Oriflame / Oriflame consultant

Cei mai multi dintre voi stiu deja ca am fost reprezentant de vanzari Avon inca din scoala generala. Pentru ceva timp a fost o afacere avantajoasa, insa cu timpul mi s-a parut ca interesul companiei nu mai era atat de mult orientat catre oameni. Nu am simtit din partea companiei interes fata de mine, decat in momentul in care am incetat sa mai plasez comenzi. Am incercat diverse metode de promovare pentru produsele Avon, insa fara prea mult succes.

The majority of you know already that I have been Avon sales representative since  I was in the secondary school. For a while it was a good business, but as the time passed I realized that the company’s interest is not anymore customers and representatives oriented. I did not feel any interest towards me until I stopped ordering from them. I tried various promoting methods for Avon products, but I wasn’t successful.

Apoi, urmarind diverse canale de Youtube am vazut cutia aniversara Oriflame (anul acesta Oriflame sarbatoreste 50 de ani) si am decis sa mi-o achizitionez, pentru ca mi-era dor de produsele lor. Asa am devenit consultant. De doua campanii plasez comenzi de produse, majoritatea chiar pentru mine si ma declar multumita. Atunci cand in catalog este anuntata o promotie, chiar asa e, diferenta de pret si avantajele se pot vedea clar. La fel se intampla si cu discountul. Pentru comenzi cuprinse in 70 si 300 lei, discountul oferit este de 23% pe suma totala. Pentru comenzi cu valoare intre 300 si 600 lei, discountul este de 30% si orice comanda peste 600 de lei beneficiaza de un discount de 40%.

Then, following various Youtube channels I saw the anniversary box from Oriflame (the company celebrates 50 years of activity this year) and I decided to buy it because I was missing their products. And I became consultant. I already ordered twice from them, the majority of products for me and I am satisfied. When they announce sales, sales it is because you can see the price difference between the catalogs. Same thing is valid for the discounts as well. If the order is between 70 and 300 lei, the discount is 23%. For orders between 300 and 600 lei the discount is 30% and for everything above 600 lei the discount is 40%.

Doresc sa impartasesc aceste informatii cu voi, intrucat interesul meu nu este acela de a va face pe voi sa comandati de la mine produse Oriflame de foarte buna calitate. Doresc sa va ajut pe voi, cei interesati sa deveniti consultanti si sa va bucurati voi de aceste beneficii. Daca hotarati sa va inscrieti in echipa mea, este de ajuns sa ma contactati si eu, impreuna cu colegele si coordonatoarele mele va vom ajuta. In plus, orice persoana care decide sa se inscrie in echipa mea si indeplineste anumiti pasi despre care va voi informa in privat, va primi un cadou surpriza din partea mea.

I want to share this information with you because my interest is not to make you order very good quality Oriflame products from me. My wish is to help all those interested to become consultants and to take advantage of these benefits. If you chose to become part of my team you just have to get in touch with me and I, together with my colleagues and coordinators will do our best to help you. Besides, every person who decides to become part of my team and accomplishes several steps that I will tell you about in private, will receive a surprise gift.

Povestea Oriflame, poate sa devina povestea ta 🙂

The Oriflame story, may become your story 🙂

Orase de suflet XI – Salamanca / Soul cities XI – Salamanca

In anul 2014 am avut ocazia sa vizitez Spania intr-o prima calatorie in interes de serviciu. Desi am aterizat la Madrid, unde m-am intalnit cu prietenul si fostul meu vecin, Danut, acesta ne-a dus la gara si am plecat cu primul tren catre Salamanca.

In 2014 I had the opportunity to visit Spain, during my first work trip. Even if we landed in Madrid, where I met my friend and  ex neighbor, Danut, he took us at the railway station and we left for Salamanca by the first train.

Salamanca, frumos oras! Desi cele amintirea acelei calatorii imi provoaca tristete din cauza unor evenimente mai putin frumoase petrecute acolo.

Salamanca, beautiful city! Thus, the memory of this trip makes me sad due to some less beautiful events that happened there.

Ceea ce mi-a placut cel mai mult a fost arhitectura. Totul m-a dus cu gandul la un trecut foarte elegant. Cel mai frumos loc din acest oras mi s-a parut Plaza Mayor. Acesta este de asemenea si cel mai aglomerat si popular loc pentru turisti.

The architecture was the aspect that I liked the most. Everything made me think at a very elegant past. The most beautiful place in the city in my opinion is Plaza Mayor. This is also the most crowded and popular place for tourists. 

Ca si interior, cred ca am fost extrem de impresionata de cladirea universitatii private din Salamanca: Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca! Aceasta este o fosta biserica/catedrala reamenjata si extrem de frumoasa!

I was extremely impressed by the interior of the private university: Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca! The building used to be a church/cathedral redecorated and very very beautiful!

Pe de alta parte, Universitatea de stat din Salamanca, are una dintre cele mai frumoase si mai vechi biblioteci din Europa si din lume.

On the other side, the Public University of Salamanca, has one of the most beautiful and oldest libraries in Europe and in the world.

Tot in cele 5 zile petrecute acolo, am avut ocazia sa particip la un festival de primavara, pe malul raului Tormes. Multi tineri dansand si bucurandu-se de primavara!

During the 5 days I spent there, I also had the opportunity to participate to a spring festival held along the river Tormes. Many young people dancing and enjoying spring!

Ca si loc porivit pentru studenti si tineri, as spune ca Cafe Erasmus este perfect. O atmosfera prietenoasa, decorat tineresc si nebunesc, acest local te invita sa revii.

Cafe Erasmus is a perfect place for students and young people. It has a friendly atmosphere, it is decorated in a young and wild spirit and it literally invites you to come back.

Despre mancare nu va pot spune prea multe, am mancat mai mult in camera de hotel, avand in vedere ca am calatorit cu o persoana de o religie diferita si cu multe reguli in ceea ce priveste acest aspect, pe care eu le-am respectat.

About the gastronomy I cannot tell much, because we used to eat mostly at the hotel, because I traveled with someone having a different religion and many strict rules regarding this topic, which I respected.

Spania, esti frumoasa! Abia astept sa te revad impreuna cu elementul meu!

Spain, you are beautiful! I can’t wait to see you again together with my element!

Viscri sau ce mai e frumos la noi in tara / Viscri or what is still beautiful in Romania

Tocmai ne-am intors de la Viscri. Nu, din pacate Majestatea Sa, Printul Charles, nu era acolo, dar ne-a lasat vorba ca bem ceaiul impreuna data viitoare 🙂

We just came back from Viscri. No, unfortunately His Majesty, Prince Charles, wasn’t there, but he left a message for us promising that next time we’ll have tea together 🙂

Viscri e un sat de poveste. Tot ce se spune despre el la televizor este adevarat si chiar dincolo de influenta media, te poti convinge singur de acest lucru inca din primele minute dupa sosirea ta.

Viscri is a fairy tale village. Everything told about it is true and even beyond the media influence, you can feel this on your own few minutes after your arrival.

Este liniste, casele sunt asa cum au fost mereu, fara modernizari, fara culori care se poarta. Inca au motivele traditionale pictate, inca au culori puternice dar obisnuite pentru atmosfera sateasca.

Is quiet, the house still are as they always have been, without being modernized, without trendy colors. They still have the traditional element painted on the walls, they still have strong colors but normal for the village’s atmosphere.

Viscri te imbie sa te plimbi si sa il descoperi. Desigur, cele mai importante locuri de vizitat sau de vazut aici sunt casa Printului Charles (transformata in pensiune) si Biserica Evanghelica, datata din 1225 (cea mai veche biserica saseasca din Transilvania), inca utilizata.

Viscri is inviting you to walk around and discover it. Of course, the main places to visit or to see are Prince Charle’s house (also a pension) and the Evangelical Church, from 1225 (the oldest Saxon Church in Transilvania), still used. 

Pretul de vizitare al acesteia, dar si a Muzeului Satului, aflat in incinta ei este de doar 8 lei. Fiecare coltisor al acesteia poate fi vizita, iar vederea din turn este absolut spectaculoasa.

The entrance price, but also of the Village Museum, which is inside is only 8 lei. Every corner of it can be visited, and the view from the tower is absolutely spectacular. 

Pe langa pretul de intrare, doamna de acolo vindea tot felul de carti postale sau leaflet-uri informative, banii fiind folositi pentru intretinerea bisericii, care repet, este inca folosita.

Beside the entrance price, the lady over there was selling different kinds of postcards or informative leaflets and all the money are used for the church, which I repeat, is still used.

Curtea bisericii este si ea minunata, iar faptul ca azi e o zi minunata de primavara, o face si mai speciala. Satenii administreaza diferite cafenele rurale, la ei in curte, foarte simpatice. Ba chiar am cumparat de la un baietel, incantat de prezenta turistilor un magnetel ca amintire. Colectia mea se mareste!!!

The yard is also great and the fact that today is a wonderful spring day, makes it even more special. The villagers have some rural cafes, in their own yards, very cute and cool. I even bought from a little boy, charmed by the tourists presence, o magnet as a souvenir. My collection is getting bigger!!! 

Daca vreti sa va simtiti eroi intr-o poveste, vizitati Viscri! Singurul lucru care probabil nu il spune nimeni despre acest sat la televizor este cat de rau este drumul pana acolo, din pacate…

If you wanna feel like heroes of a story, visit Viscri! The only thing probably nobody would tell about this village at TV is related to the fact that, unfortunately, the road up to there is sooo bad…

Vizita a meritat, iar elementul meu spune ca vom reveni atunci cand vom avea copii:)

The visit was worth and my element says we will go back there together with our children:)
