Grand Canion-Grand Dream

This week I invite you in a virtual trip in United States of America, in Arizona at the Grand Canyon and I hope that after this trip I’ll convince you to go there for real to see this amazing place and feel the special vibration that it has. When I am very busy and tired and the only free time that I have is the time between my rehearsals and theater I am taking energy from my memories. Memories from nice, calm and peaceful places I’ve been. Grand Canyon is one of those places. It is incredible how our affective memory is working and is recharging our battery and helps us go further. Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in Arizona. It is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,093 feet or 1,857 meters). Colorado River established its course through the area about 5 to 6 million years ago. Since that time, the Colorado River has driven the down-cutting of the tributaries and retreat of the cliffs, simultaneously deepening and widening the canyon. No matter how many pictures or movies with this place you’ll see nothing compares with the sensation of being there. It is a place that leaves you speechless.  Grand Canyon fills your heart with joy. That’s why it has 5 millions of tourists every year. On our way to Grand Canyon we stopped at Hoover Dam. This is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado...

The art is happening at the Artists’s nest and it is UAU

The art is happening. At the “Artists’s nest” the art is really happening. It is a place where the people are nourishing with art and they never get tired of doing it. I had the luck to discover this place in a ‘UAU’ project. This is the name of our theater show that will have the premiere on 18th February. There’s no place I rather be this week than Artists’s nest, because we are going to play UAU everyday starting 18th February until 24th February, twice per night. Don’t forget to make a reservation. Besides the joy of working to as new theater play and character, I had the opportunity to meet on stage my dear colleagues, fact that made me so happy. Tesla generation rocks!  In this UAU theater show I’ll be playing next to: Vlad Basarabescu, one of the first’s members of artists’s nest, Adrian Piciorea, Carla Mihai, Gloria Melu, Frederic Negrescu and Cătălin Gheorghiu. We are waiting for you every night to be UAU together. Let me tell the story I discovered about this place, I heard some think, but now I can tell you what and how I felt being there. Artists’s nest is a dream that become come true 4 years ago and since then it grew up in one year like others in ten. It started from a discussion in train between two young and ambitious dreamers: Victor Ţăpeanu and Vlad. Victor could not pull out of his head an idea, to bring an european form of theater that he discovered in...

Walking around Montreal

Montreal experience was great! Green, green and again green! We went to Canada in September and we were so lucky because the weather was just wonderful. We’ve been sun kissed every day! The green all around completed this beautiful atmosphere. Canada is the place where you have the purest air, there you’ll find a lot of green places, nice places with water, peace, silence, relaxation, in a few words there is a good vibration. I place where I found out that if you are not stressed the things will just go with to flow or will be even better than you were expecting. It is great to remind sometimes this, because the things are getting easier then. There nobody is hurrying or stressing. It is amazing! Here it is what we did and loved: I love nature and everything that mean green, they can be in my plate or just in front of me. Haha. Just Kidding. So, first on my top list it is Mont Royal. Besides the huge and beautiful park full of nice squirrels, this offers to you a very nice top view of the city. I have to admit that wasn’t that easy to climb this mountain and reach the view, we had a lot of stairs and was pretty hard, but we just stopped to enjoy the surroundings when we felt the need. On the top the view is Amazing, also, there was a piano that everyone could play it. I did this and it felt...

Walking around Venice

Venice is the city of love, of romantic walks, where the arts surprise you at each step and you are surrounded by culture. Wonderful! About Venice I can say that it made me feel so much, I had mixed feelings: huge joy, melancholy and wonder. First of all Venice means Italy and I love Italy! Yeah! Each time I arrive there I feel like I am in a story, or a movie or a theater play. It just left me breathless. I was so happy to be in Venice, to get lost on the narrow streets, to admire that amazing scenery, to play with the carnival masks and to wish for another pair of legs to be able to walk more and more. This city it is gorgeous, you can’t be disappointed. First on our list was Piazza San Marco. It is placed in the heart of Venice and is unique in the world. Napoleon described this square as “the most beautiful Hall of Europe.” Once you get there you can admire the San Marco’s Church and his amazing mosaics. While we were admiring all the beauty from this square we made some new friends, some little friends, actually, pigeons. They are so lovely and gentle. On the right of the church it is Torre dell’Orologio. A clock tower, built in 1499 of which latin inscription says „I count only the happy hours!”. In this square you cand find the Doge Palace. This is the place where the Venice’s secrets are...

Niagara Falls

This is one of the most visited attractions in the world! It is a wonder. The combination of flow rate and height make the falls epic to see in person. I had the opportunity to see this miracle created by nature. When I looked at it I realized how big is our world and how small is our existence. This planet is so beautiful and it worth to be visited and discovered. The time that we spent at Niagara Falls was full of adventures, amazing experiences, but also peace and relaxation. The scenery it still imprinted in my soul and mind. Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the US state of New York. The three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. Only 10% of this fall is on the American side. I also saw the American side of the falls, but I found out that the Canadian part is way more interesting, so I added a new place to my bucket list. I discovered that it is considered the most beautiful falls in the world and it is number 5 in top 5 most visited attractions in the world in the front of Disney Land, Notre Dame Paris and the Great Wall of China.   The Niagara Falls is considered a natural reserve. The park was established in 1885 and is the oldest park in the area. Here there are a lot of activities...
