About Me

about me

My life is a travel story!

Hey! My name is Catalina and I am from Romania, I am a mom and a wife, and I’ve been blogging since 2016. My day job is in a software company.

I believe that emotions are what make our lives wonderful and I believe that vacation is the best way to experience the most diverse emotions.

Paris joy

I think life is too short and it is our duty to ourselves to be happy every day. I believe that it is the duty of every human being to transmit joy to those around us and each of us can make a contribution to the happiness of another human being.

What to pack travel 1-year-old

Through my travel blog, holidayandtrips.com I want to share my experiences and emotions from my travel and inspire you to choose the most beautiful places to travel, the most interesting tourist attractions to visit, the best hotels to stay in, the oldest museum pieces to discover and much more.


Find the perfect trip for you

Visit the Colosseum or Porto Katsiki Beach, the infinite blue monastery, Voronet, in Romania, or the Louvre Museum in Paris, Egypt, or Asia.

Archeology, history, and legends

Walking in a city full of history gives you a great feeling and makes you go on a time trip.

A holiday on a sandy beach is not only about relaxation or sunbathes but also about the history of that land, villages around that beach, a beautiful landscape, making snorkeling to see the sea life, or meet wonderful people that can tell you about old legends.

Visiting a museum is about discovering the past of a civilization or a life of an artist, the joy of finding an object from ancient times, reading about lives that you will never live, without fire or without the comfort of modern technology, lives of simple people that actually build our world.

Delicious food and traditional fairs

Looking for a good place to eat is about the desire to taste a traditional dish, to smell the local spices, to participate in family cooking, about a coffee enjoyed during sunrise, or to participate in a traditional fair with local products.
