Bucegi Mountains--Babele Rock Formation and the Sphinx

Hi! My name is Laura and I will be your personal tour guide for Romania from now on.
Let's say you are planning a trip to Romania and you don't know where to start. 
Who you gonna call? Not Ghostbusters, but me. Write my number down. It's 867-5309/Laura
I am just kidding. I will not take calls. I will however take pictures of my beautiful country and share them on my blog.

First stop Bucegi. This is the perfect place for tourists to walk among some of the most breathtaking mountain sceneries in the world.
The Bucegi Mountains are located in central Romania, south of the city Bra┼čov. They are part of the Southern Carpathians group of the Carpathian Mountains.

Two major tourist attractions can be found here. One of them is the Sphinx , an old stone looking like a human face, apparently formed by wind erosion. This giant human head rock on has sparked the interest of many along the years.
The second, Babele that translates to "Old Women”, a rock formation resembling human silhouettes.

Pretty impressive, right? Stay tuned for more of the new"Traveling to Romania" series.

New Year's Resolution

Happy New Year, everyone! I know I am one week late, but I was so, so busy with doing absolutely nothing these past few weeks. I just laid on the couch like Al Bundy most of the time. And while I was sitting around, doing nothing I realized that yet another year has come to an end and that life doesn't wait for anyone.
Ok, I might sound a little dramatic now, but think about it. It's crazy how fast time flies and how we always feel like there's plenty of time. The trouble is, you think you have time.

So, drum rolls please, my new year's resolution is to act more, postpone less.
I wanted to post these pictures from Christmas for some time now, but I had other priorities than blogging like baking chocolate chip cookies and eating them.
My life is so exciting they should make a movie out of it.
