Pe dealurile Tiliscai – 15 febr. 2015

A fost intr-o buna zi de duminica dimineata, cand a trebuit sa dau un test la un posdru (d-ala cu fonduri europene minune), dar dupa aceea m-am mobilizat la iesit macar undeva pe dealuri, ca nu se mai putea. Cum unii erau plecati deja pe munte de sambata, am ramas eu cu Dana sa mergem agale pe dealurile Tiliscai. Nu mai fusesem de ceva vreme pe acolo si mi-era dor, este o zona superba si cu niste catune rasfirate pe toate culmile de dealuri, o minunatie !

Lasam masina in capatul satului Tilisca si purcedem spre vaile din zona. Ajungem numaidecat la troita care marcheaza confluenta celor doua vai – valea Tiliscai si valea Tiliscutei.


La troita cu pricina vom vira la dreapta pentru a urca abrupt spre culmile dealurilor. Drumul forestier castiga foarte repede diferenta de nivel, astfel incat dupa cateva serpentine deja vedem valea jos. In acelasi timp lepadam si ceva straturi de haine de pe noi, odihnindu-ne din cand in cand, pentru a vedea … caprioare cu fund alb !

Ajunse sus in culmea dealului incepem a admira zarile printr-un binemeritat picnic la plaja. Mai si ce picnic, mi-a dat Danutza “pita prin ou“, nu mancasem in viata mea asa ceva, dar era atat de buna, incat mai ca i-am mancat-o pe toata ! Mi-era si foame, clar, sa dai un test duminica dimineata face tare foame ! Apoi incepem o superba plimbare alene pe drum, cu ochii la salasele care inca nu sunt functionale, fiind inca zapada multa pe sus.


Intr-un singur loc am auzit latraturi de caini, semn ca cineva ne simtise prezenta, dar cainii erau pe dealul vecin si nu pareau sa ne bage foarte tare in seama, asa ca nici noi nu i-am bagat in seama. Mergand cat au fost urmele batute pe drum am identificat de fapt de unde veneau si cainii, de la singura stana care era cu oile la acea data calendaristica acolo. Pasteau saracele oi pe fetele sudice ale dealurilor unde daduse deja iarba ! Strasnic sa stai si sa auzi sunetul talangii ! Asta da transhumanta frate !

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASi drumul de culme, intr-o stramtoare care mie imi aduce aminte de sintagma “Iarna pe ulita !

Ne-am intors pe acelasi drum inapoi, pentru ca nu vroiam sa cobor pe valea umbrita, vroiam sa profitam de soare cat mai mult, si am mai profitat si de inca un picnic la plaja, cu ochii la drumul de Crint de pe dealul de vis-a-vis ! La intoarcere am fermecat doi catei care dadeau din coada ca din matura pana m-am bagat eu in masina, atat de mieros vorbeam cu ei ! Numai afectiune si bale imi puneau pe mine scumpetele de catei !

About AuthenticTravels

My life motto is simple yet comprehensive: “We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting” (Khalil Gibran, poem ‘The Prophet‘) Background in architecture, historic monuments, and cultural tourism Professionally, during the past 20 years, I’ve focused on issues of cultural heritage and resilience tourism, based on my specialization in historic monuments. I graduated Architecture, then I completed two master programs and a doctorate in the field of both cultural tourism and restoration of historic towns. I became a member of various cultural and touristic organizations, among which the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). Then, at a certain moment, I decided to change the course of my carrier and became a travel writer, editor, and planner (each step at a time). Working in an office was definitely not for me. I needed to have freedom and to be able to explore the beauties of the world (as my motto says, right?). Not only I started to travel more and for longer periods, but I started the travel of my life, through life. Travel writer, editor, and photographer I am part of Arrivedo’s expert travel writers and write neighborhood guides for different hotels worldwide. As part of my professional writing, I’ve produced travel articles in English for Much Better Adventures, Modern Trekker, Adventure Animals, Matador Network, Arrivedo, Inside Himalayas, Activity Fan, and Sonderers. Thus, here it is a list of my published articles in English (by Iuliana Marchian). Also, I have written in Romanian for the Rulotism, Greciadeweekend, LiterNet, Capital Cultural, and National Geographic journals. Thus, here it is a list of my published articles in Romanian (by Iuliana Marchian). Besides, I am part of the Much Better Adventures team and produce regular content on adventure experiences through the Balkans. Eventually, I have joined Arrivedo’s Editors team and I assist other writers in completing their Neighborhood Guides for hotels. Moreover, when writing is not enough and people want to hear more about my experiences, I’ve accepted the challenge of speaking in public about my travels. It was difficult at the beginning, but I’ve gotten used to it now. When you speak about your passions, there’s no limit. I share my experiences of traveling through my talks at Incubator107 and inspire people to discover themselves through travel. My Travel Style – slow, authentic, flexible During my travels, I get in touch with locals through different communities or simply while I am on the road. For the moment, I travel by myself at a slow pace and seek for authentic places, where tourism hasn’t yet commodified the features of the place. This is a reason why I love what traveling brings into my life. I believe that the people I meet aren’t a coincidence. This way I see how every day of traveling adds a brick to my self-development. I consider traveling the best way of personal development, accompanied by the classic cliché ‘out of the comfort zone‘. Through my travels, I want to bring to light human individuality. I consider that everyone has his or her own travel style, authentic, and free of any boundaries.
