How can we afford to travel non stop?  


Nice and happy dinner table Nice and happy dinner table

After a long period in which were cut off from our trips and dreams, and we couldn't think of anything positive, eventually we had some good days with our couchsurfing hosts.
Some moments in which we could stop thinking about our problems and feel like if we are travelling, even if we actually are "stuck" in Romania for undetermined time, giving all of our support and energies.
Since yesterday we are at Benjamin and Maria's place, a very sweet and interesting German-Romanian couple. The first day we shared the "brunch" table also with a French and a Polish hitchhiker. An unusual situation, with 6 hitchhikers, each one from a different country, and by chance sitting at the same table, sharing great stories at turn, enjoying each other without anybody being the "star" or doing monologues. Then a nice tea at Raluca's place, another nice couchsurfer that invited us at her place, taking care of an overactive and little artistic girl.
Tonight the table was shared not only with Ben and Maria but also with a Taiwanese couple in their 60ies. They have been travelling for the last 7 years (6 months per year) enjoying their retirement period and still young and enthusiastic about life like teenagers. It has been really interesting listening to their stories but also enjoying their peculiar mimics and smiles. We even got our names written in Taiwanese!
In this moment I have a nice feeling of satisfaction and peace, I've been missing this for a long time, and that's why it came the "inspiration" to share this moment of happiness.
And previously another great couchsurfing experience with Radu, his mountaineering stories, his girlfriend Ana and their "puppy" Sasha that at 8 months old is bigger than an adult Labrador but jumping on you and acting as if he is a chiwawa!
And today we also had the time for an hilarious moment at a Romanian clinic, where I was the patient (with a 1 cm long beard), and Oti speaking in Romanian on my behalf:
Ecographer: When was your last cycle?
Me & Oti: what?
Ecographer: When was your last cycle?
Oti: I don't understand, I'm not the patient
Ecographer starting to get pissed off: I know, but when was your last menstrual cycle? (pointing at me)
Me (confused): But I'm a man!
Egographer: -__-

I like to say that I'm a gypsy traveller. In 2009 I quit my job to chase my dream of exploring our wonderful planet in a sustainable way; thanks to my itchy feet, I had a lot of incredible adventures and I got closer to my goal of becoming a travel photographer. I love nature, sustainability, outdoor and hiking, and I never stop dreaming. More about Davide Vadala'. Content attribution on Google +
