I nearly quit everything a few times because it was too hard for me living aboard a small sailboat far away from home. Also there was the point when I was trying to build a family and I decided to give up my sailing dreams in order to do that. Life it’s always full of pleasant surprises too, not only bad ones. And the day I decided to purchase Anastasia was a moment when everything started to make sense. That was the time when I decided to quit my job entirely, move on the sailboat for good, and start preparing for the big adventure sailing around the world.
Until the day I woke up and told my self, “this is it…. now it makes sense“. Traveling With The Wind, a long name you would say, but it all makes sense to me and the ideas I have in my mind for the future videos. That was the time when I decided to build this website, and prepare the You Tube Channel and the social media accounts for what’s about to come. Videos with a beautiful story, simple as I am as well, about the simple but happy life aboard a sailboat. With the videos I create, I’m trying to share my dream and hopefully inspire my viewers to do the same.
I’m a filmmaker and photographer born in a little Transylvanian village named Marcus, about 25km away from Brasov – Romania, with a special passion and respect for the ocean, nature and wildlife. The passion and love for the nature and wildlife came in my early childhood. I was spending a lot of time playing in the forest while living with my grandparents. The respect for the forest and the wild animals came from my grandfather’s life stories.
Having a special attraction for photography and films, I spend a lot of time in nature practicing my photography skills. From here it was just one step until I started making little trips in the forest or the mountains, trying to capture the amazing views. The passion for the ocean came a few years after that, when I made my first visit to the Black Sea. After that, I never stopped wishing for a boat to sail the blue waters, in my quest to discover new places, cultures and people.
Thanks to my job, I traveled a lot, but I never had the time to explore every place as I wished to. That was the time when I had my first thoughts of traveling the world either on land with a camping bus, or at sea with a sailboat. And so it happened in 2015, when mostly by mistake I ended up buying my first sailboat, the beginning of an adventure called now Traveling With The Wind.
A series of sailing adventures films, that I started on You Tube.
