Hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as I did! I had a great time yesterday, hangin' in my friends yard, playing board games and making plans for Greece this summer.
Today, driven by the beautiful weather outside, we decided to go biking in the park. I don't know about you guys, but for me, one of my memorable childhood experiences would definitely be learning to ride a bike. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a quite painful experience actually. I asked my cousin to teach me how to do it and unfortunately for me, his methods were a bit unorthodox :). He told me to get on the bike and then pushed me off a hill, thinking that this way I would get scared, start pedaling and learn how to ride the bike. Well, it's safe to say I did not peddle at all, and I ended up riding the bike straight into a fence...auch!
But this is the beauty of being a kid...after every fall, no matter how painful, I would always get up and try again, a thousand times, until I'd succeed (Oh, how I wish I had the same ambition nowadays). So I practiced and practiced until I finally learned how to ride a bike. And it felt amazing! I felt free and powerful for the first time!
Ever since I moved to Bucharest I've been thinking about buying my own bicycle. Every year I do tons of research on models and prices, but since I don't have any place to store it during the cold seasons, I had no choice but to settle for rentals... This proved to be a problem today, as the renting center was closed, so my plans were totally ruined...It was a bit frustrating at first, but after a nice walk in the park and a couple of beers, we pretty much forgot about the biking disappointment. Thank you, beer, I knew I could count on you to fix everything :)!
Have a wonderful week!
