A SIMPLE MAN LOVING LIFE, LIVING MY DREAMS
I created Romanian Explorer from my passion for: travel, outdoors adventures, photography and filmmaking. This website it’s my tool to share with you: stories, tips, guides and inspiration.
Not to write a very long story, I will be as short as possible. I was born on September 4th 1980 in Mărcuș, a small village near Brașov. I had a really happy childhood, close to my parents and grandparents. But I also had wonderful friends to explore with.
Thanks to them and also to the teachers in school, I always had the desire for travel and adventure, or to discover places and people from all over the world. And so far, it seems that nothing changed.

I DID NOT QUIT MY JOB AND SOLD EVERYTHING TO TRAVEL
Early in my 20’s I decided that I want a job that will allow me to travel the world. That’s how I ended up working on cruise ships for many years. Maybe too many…
It is indeed a way to travel, but not exactly how I imagined it to be. Mostly because you only stop in touristic areas. All you get to see it’s just a lot of restaurants and shops. That it’s not what I was looking for.
I’m not so much of a traveler, but more an explorer. I love film and photography and I had nothing to make a documentary about. There was no time either because as crew, you only have a few hours off. That’s if you’re lucky enough to have “a day off”.
