I have to write in my biography that I like to walk. At first it was more for medical and dietary reasons and now it has become a way of life. Walking!
Fortunately, this not only helps me maintain my health, it helps me to write in @tattoodjay's challenge. #wednesdaywalk. Thus I have ensured at least one topic per week and I write with the same pleasure I walk.
In a few words: our friend @tattoodjay suggests posting pictures and thoughts from our last walk. Nothing easier and more enjoyable. I think that's why this challenge is so successful!
I have to reveal something more: I use this challenge as a kind of travel journal. I keep here all the trips I have made and I hope to see them again in the next years. I also hope that these walks inspire readers who are also travelers to follow in my footsteps if they ever arrive in these cities. Now it's about Iasi, Romania.
I am thrilled that because of the hundreds of blogs I wrote about Iasi, there are a few of you who now know that there is this city in this great world we all live in!
This ride is for: looking muffins!
Office colleagues and residents of this city have told us about a small bistro where are crafted muffins.
Our walk had this purpose, discovering the place where the best mounds are hidden. Fortunately, the place we were looking for was not too far away and so we arrived quickly. But I noticed everything that seemed remarkable in our way. The faculty of medicine and pharmacy, one of the most known and sought after in Romania. Hundreds of students from other countries are studying here. For two reasons: the school is good and the fees are lower than in Western Europe.
In front of the Faculty there is a monument dedicated to the unification of the Romanian provinces. The unification and formation of the Romanian state started from the initiative of the intellectuals and politicians from Iasi, around 1850.
Exceeding the historical area of this walk, we approach the target of the trip ... the shop where artisanal muffins are prepared.
The search and the walk up to this point was well worth it. These muffins are very tasty and the small bistro, a family business, is tastefully decorated.
Thanks for this discovery I promised that we will return as often as we can. We are now waiting for the way back, the walk to the office. In the same park of the Faculty I saw a monument dedicated to the memory of the dead in the battles fought for the achievement and preservation of the integrity of the Roman state. An eternal flame burns here.
I met the endless churches, the city of one hundred churches ...
At the end of the ride, near the office, I wanted the clear proof that it is not good to leave the car too much parked in the same place. This can happen ...
I think we can say that there are two major categories of walks: walks that have a purpose, a target and random walks, where the steps take you. I think they're as nice and helpful both ways. For me this ride had a purpose that was achieved!
