1. Driving through the Carpathian Mountains in August and buying a bucket of freshly picked blueberries from a roadside vendor.
2. Buying the prettiest mărțișor from every vendor’s stall on the 1st of March to stick on your loved ones’ chests, welcoming the arrival of spring.
3. Driving around until you find the perfect spot — secluded, green, by a river where you can bathe and surrounded by fir trees — where you can spend a hot sunny day “la iarbă verde” with your family.
Grilling pork steaks, chicken legs and mici over the fire, and, most of all, having your parents, grandma and your extended family there to share it with you.
