I adore old things

dscf3098

I sometimes think that I was born in the wrong time period. I would have loved to be born in the 18th or 17th century, to wear long and big dresses. I would probably have been the outcast of that age…and I would have liked it :D. I like all kinds of old things, from buildings to stamps and badges. And Canterbury is the perfect place for my hobby. Every day I find details that I’ve missed before, and I love going hunting for them. Now don’t get me wrong, I do live in the present, but I like going back in time, trying to imagine how people lived before me , what they liked and what they thought.

Some catching up

I haven’t been posting for a while, and I have lots of photos to share. I can’t do that cause it would take like 3  pages…so here are some representative ones for each of my actions during these past 3 weeks. And before that i want to remind you that we launched our site http://www.straight2heaven.ro/ last week. I am extremely proud of Chris and of what he managed to do, and how fast he learned, and also the commitement and passion he put into all this. Hope you enjoy it and we are waiting for impressions and feedback.

So here we go: visited the Cathedral again (it’s hard to miss it when it’s just opposite the university)

I had some quiet visits in the park, since the weather was so nice…

I visited the ruins of St. Augustine’s Abbey with Georgiana. Can’t believe we have something so beautiful just a feat away from the Uni grounds.

The graduation took place last week, and after the festivity in the University they moved to the Cathedral. It made me go a little bit in the future and think about how I will look in those robes 3 years from now…

Today I had an interview in Margate. The city is wonderful, quiet and ruled by the sea.
