Cu parfum de "nu v-am uitat" ...

Mă mai bucură încă de odihnă ..  Deși fac acest lucru acum cu un indiciu ... ma "parfumez" bine pentru maine !
În plus, această vacanță pe blog îmi face tare bine ...
Mă simt liberă ca o pasăre.

I still enjoy my rest Although I do that now with a nod to ... "I want to smell good, tomorrow" Furthermore, this blog holiday pleases me very well.
I feel as free as a bird.

Hot, long summer vacation!

[RO] E clar că a început să bată vântul (vacanței) prin "blog land" și vă spuneam că peste 4 săptămâni, (asta scriam acum o săptămână) am să-mi iau vacanță, dar .... socoteala de acasă nu se potrivește cu cea din târg! Uite că va trebui să iau vacanță mult mai repede. Vara aceasta se vor schimbă anumite lucruri în viața mea! Nu e de rău, e de bine, zic eu, dar toată această schimbare vine cu stress la pachet. De aceea am scris în titlu "hot" ca să nu scriu stress! Cu multă muncă dar și cu vacanță desigur. Probabil că voi lipsi mai mult ca de obicei. Încă nu știu exact, dar s-ar putea să fie chiar jumătatea lui septembrie atunci când mă voi întoarce pe blog!

Am închis comentariile la această postare pentru a evita dezamăgiri. Nu am timp să va răspund la ele, dar va mulțumesc de acum pentru toate gândurile voastre bune pe care mi le trimiteți!

Va doresc o vacanță plăcută cu multă relaxare, odihnă și voie bună!
Vacanță plăcută și un concediu minunat!

[EN] It is clear that the vacation wind has begun through the "blog land"! I told you that over 4 weeks (this is what I was writing a week ago) I will take my vacation but ... the home account does not match the one from the fair! So I'm gonna have to take my vacation much faster. This summer, things will change in my life! It's not bad, it's fine but all this change comes with a little bit stress. That is why I wrote in the title "Hot" not to mention stress! With a lot of work and of course after that with vacation. I'm probably going to be absent more than usual. I still do not know exactly, but it might even be the middle of September when I come back to blog!

I have closed the comments on this message to avoid disappointment ... I do not have time to answer them, but thank you for all your good thoughts that you send to me!

I wish you a pleasant holiday with a lot of relaxation, rest and good pleasure!
Pleasant vacation and a wonderful holiday!

Netherlands "the beautiful" 2 - Amsterdam - Skylines and views

[RO] Amsterdam este unic în multe feluri. Orașul este cunoscut pentru sticlele sale verzi de Heineken și renumit pentru canalele sale frumoase.

Amsterdam este metropola cea mai frumoasă dintre cele mai frumoase, dar nu aș vrea să locuiesc acolo. De ce? Pentru că este foarte aglomerat și pentru că sunt foarte mulți turiști!

Nu am sa va pot prezenta tot ceea ce eu simt pentru Amsterdam într-o singura postare! Cred ca vor mai urma cateva postari despre acest oras carismatic, dar dupa vacanta! Nu îmi mai sta capul la istorie sau locuri de descoperit din Amsterdam acum. Inca o saptamana sau trei si urmeaza vacanta! Abia astept!

[EN]  Amsterdam is unique in many ways. The city is known for its green Heineken bottles and famous for its beautiful canals.
Amsterdam is a metropolis, the most beautiful of all the prettiest, but I will do not to live there! Why? Because it is very crowded and because there are many tourists!

I will not be able to show you everything what I feel for Amsterdam in a single post! I think it will follow a few posts about this charismatic city, but after the holiday! I am unable now to describe history or "places to discover" in Amsterdam. Another week or three and I have vacation!
I can not wait!

Let's begin with Skylines and views: Amsterdam's city center, Binnenstad, is very old and wellpreserved with a medieval skyline of church spires and other kind of historic towers. The tallest buildings in the old town/city center is Westerkerk (85m). So almost no highrises have been built in the center. Rotterdam and The Hague has a much larger, and taller concentration of skyscrapers in the city center. But that doesn't mean that Amsterdam has no skyscrapers. There are some taller brand new buildings in the harbour just northeast of the central station, at Ooosterdok and Eastern Docklands. The 2 tallest buildings in Amsterdam, Rembrandttoren (150m) and Mondriaan toren, are situated in the Omval district south of the city center, next to Amstel river.

But the largest concentration of skyscrapers is in the outskirts, even more southwards, in the new Zuidas district, also next to Amstel river. Most buildings in Zuidas are only around 100m tall. Zuidas is also known as the "Financial Mile" and have been built around 2010.

More notable areas with smaller concentration of highrises/skyscrapers are Amsterdam Arena and Sloterdijk. There are totally about 7 highrise districts in Amsterdam.
