I was not a fan of these type of blouses until I started working on cruise ships and the identity crisis hit me.
I was meeting people from around the word that had a perfect image of their culture and identity and I felt that I barely knew anything about my country. We, Romanians, have a lot in common with our country neighbors and in many ways I couldn’t express myself properly about what makes us different.
So I started reading books about our culture and the old religion and I somehow feel in love with what I was discovering.
I was searching for things like embroidered blouses and at that time they were back in fashion. Designers were inspired by the east European traditional blouses and I bought myself one. I was so proud of myself!
The next step was to buy an hand made one and to wear it around the word while working on the cruise ship.
It didn’t take long until I had the courage to embroide my own blouse with the help of the blog Semne Cusute who explained all the symbols used on the authentic Romanian blouse.
For the first time in my life, everything made sense and I felt Romanian.
As I look now, I am proud of myself for all the lessons and blouses that I finished embroidering.
I dream to have a special closet full of blouses made by me from each corner of Romania.
My journey is still at the beginning and I hope you guys can appreciate my work so far!
RO: Inainte de a va arata cum am impodobit anul acesta bradul, va voi arata cateva poze facute in perioada cand lucram pe vasele de croaziera.
Am prins 3 ani la rand Craciunul in Sydney (Australia) si Hawaii.
Desi nu au zapada in Decembrie, fiecare coltisor al oraselor este impodobit.
EN: In the three years that we have been working with the cruising company, we had three Christmases around Australia and Hawaii. We took pictures of the beautiful streets and Malls that were decorated for the holiday!
Because we don’t have snow this year for Christmas I wanted to share how other parts of the world, that don’t have it either, look.
Am promis ca va voi prezenta surpriza oferita de echipa ce ne-a oferit 3 zile minunate in Hunedoara in luna mai.
Eu am zburat prima oara cu avionul in anul 2011 si am tremurat din toate incheieturile, fricoasa si emotionata. Cand am auzit ce surpriza avea Seby pentru noi am incremenit de emotii din nou.
Nu imi imaginasem vreodata ca voi avea curajul sa zbor cu planorul, asa ca mi-am luat sa port prima mea ie. Am purtat ia de Mehedinti ca sa imi dea curaj.
Nu stiu daca se observa cat de mult batea vantul si cat de emotionata eram, nu stiam la ce sa ma astept.
A fost extraordinar, o senzatie puternica, mai ales cand te desprinzi de Pamant si simti cum norii vor sa te stranga la pieptul lor, cum Soarele pare atat de aproape si iti saruta fruntea. Intregul verde de sub tine pare o mare nemiscata si umbra norilor mangaie pamantul incet. Acele cateva minute te fac sa uiti cat de mic esti si sa te simti ca ti-ai depasit limitele omenesti.
Am simtit ca ma aflu pe aripile unui Dragon ce ma plimba pe Imperiul sau!
Multumesc frumos echipei Vizita in HD pentru aceasta ocazie minunata si daca aveti drum spre Hunedoara, nu uitati sa dati o tura la Aeroclubul din Deva.
