My trip to Oradea, Romania
I left Cluj with some sort of relieve. I did have a nice time there with grandad, but then it's still sometimes tiring to take care of a 96 year-old :)
Anyway, I bought a first class InterCity ticket from Cluj to Orade, which is a 2 1/2 hour train ride and that turned out to be really nice and comfortable. The ticket was only 55 RON, about €13 and the train was brand new and somewhat similar to our regional trains in Germany. The train ride itself was also really nice because of the scenic landscape you are passing - truly nice areas :)
Finally, when I got to Oradea, my partner picked me up and I haded home to my apartment, grabbing some dinner and going for a nice long rest.
Oradea was fun as always. It's always great to be with the guys from the office. Unfortunately, I don't make it out there often enough, but I really enjoy the work there and it always seems like we get a lot done. It's not like that really, but when I am there I feel this closeness to the projects and the team and that makes the difference.
Also, I really enjoyed Oradea this time, because I was working out a lot, pretty much every day, either playing basketball or going for long runs. Marius, was kind enough to take me running and some of the guys at the office to me to play some Basketball - I suck these days, but it's still enough for a friendly game.
Besides sports, good food and work, I always enjoy the many pubs in the city. I must say that I have calmed down a lot as far as my nightlife goes, but then it's still fun to hang out, drink some gin tonics and use Skype on my iPhone :) The bars I hang out at are usually Columbus, Blue Monday's and sometimes Lord's.
BTW, we also had some awesome news for the company, I can only recommend to you checking out the following gallery http://www.travelgrove.com/community/users/stef/galleries/2431/Office+June+12th+2009/
To celebrate the new office, we took the entire company out for dinner at thisplace called Leonesse. It's a fun place that's supposed to be kind of like a knight's roundtable. I wouldn't exactly recommend the place, but it was ok.
