A few days ago, I had breakfast at an avocado fast food place that just opened in Bucharest (my home town), which reminded me of a similar themed restaurant I discovered this year in Tokyo and I’ve been planning to write about.

The place is called Madosh, it’s located in Harajuku neighborhood Google Maps link – basically, where all the hipsters and most expensive shops are, and all dishes in the menu are avocado-based. Read more…

As you probably already know, I’ll be spending the next days in Sibiu, attending the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. It’s a week-long dose of culture, arts and creativity in all its forms, from theatre to dance performances, modern circus, book exhibitions, workshops and many others. Overall, it’s a great pretext to meet interesting people gathered from all corners of the world, in a beautiful city.

Aveam în gând ca în 2017:
✓ Să termin primul meu maraton.
✓ Să fie singurul pe care-l fac pe asfalt, să mă concentrez în rest doar pe alergările montane.
✓ Să nu-l fac în București, ci într-un oraș dintr-o țară străină, cu atmosferă mișto pe traseu.
✓ Să-l duc relaxată până la capăt, fără să risc efecte pe termen lung.
