Alina has been watching Grey's Anatomy since 2008 (three years after the TV show started) and ever since then, she had a love-hate relationship with the TV show.

Last week there was the season finale of season 17 and Alina had a lot to say about it. #alinasonders

Ep. 132 - Donating Blood | Expat Life
We all know how important it is to donate blood, right? Even if you have never done it, nor consider it, you still know that this is the one thing you can do to possibly save someone's life. For real, not metaphorically. Yet, so few people are donating. Today's episode is about my experience of trying to donate blood in Iceland. Because unfortunately, it wasntæt as easy as I was expecting.

Ep. 130 - Gilmore Girls | She Watches
You probably know I love Gilmore Girls so much. It's one of the shows I have watched from start to finish probably more than 10 times. The first time, I watched it back in the early 2000s when I was in high school and later on I kept rewatching because it made more sense in a different way. And I also transitioned from seeing myself in Rory to seeing myself in Lorelai. A lot to unpack there.  P.S. Forever #TeamJess.

Ep. 124 - Formula 1 | She Watches
Today's episode is something completely different from what you are used to but something close to my heart. I am starting today another mini-series on my podcast, She Watches. I will expand on what are my favourite sports, movies, tv shows and so on. And since F1 is back, I had to start with the glorious racing event. . It was the late-90s when I got into liking Formula 1. Watching every race for almost 15 years or even more not only brought me joy because I mean it's F1 racing!, but also because I acknowledged all these countries as little as they were shown. I mean back then the idea of me affording to travel was something close to impossible, little I knew later in life I would actually watch a race live. But that's another story. And for the longest time, I had very few friends to share my passion with, mainly because I felt out of place not knowing more about cars and engines and ish. I was never into cars, clearly since I got my driving license one year and a half ago. I just loved the racing. . For those curious about what I mentioned in the episode, this is the blog I was talking about: https://justvave.wordpress.com/category/sport/

Ep. 121 - Paying Taxes in Iceland | Expat Life
I am starting today a mini-series on my podcast, talking about my immigrant life. I have actually talked about this before on my podcast since I live in three other countries before Iceland: Denmark, Turkey and Tunisia. Also, I am not gonna get into the whole immigrant vs. expat meaning. I think people should get over themselves and stop assuming people coming from another country (or from a specific part of the world) are beneath them. Back to today's episode, I am talking about my experience with paying taxes in Iceland, after working as a contractor in film production.  #alinaswonders

Today is my second favourite holiday of the year. Can you guess which one is it? The two countries I have lived the most in are celebrating two very distinct things today. It was time to give you more insight into both of them, and how to make it your own.  Happy Beer Day and/or Happy First Day of Spring! #alinaswonders

I continue the stories from my childhood and later as a teenager. The little stories I have very little or no photos of, but they are still vivid in my memories. I have chosen this photo because it is rather funny. Here I was: finally being 18 years old, happy with my cake and being legally able to drink a beer. But do you see the phone? Listen to the story on how I got it stolen a few months later.  It is always great to look back at some of the adventures we've been through. And so this time, I wanna hear it from you. What are some of your adventures as a kid or teenager? I feel like I could record a part three of this.. if you guys are interested.  I have published my April newsletter.

Ep. 90 - 9 Insane Adventures | Part 1
Have you ever looked back at your memories, all the way to your childhood, and tried to remember the silly things you were doing? I think everyone has done that, and today I share with you some of my adventures as a kid. Because the need for risky situations started many years ago... back in the 90s. Unfortunately, especially at the beginning of the 90s, we didn't have a camera so I have very few pictures. And the ones I have were all during some sort of celebration. This is why today's picture is still an old one, by the river, taken with a camera on film that I later scanned, but it is not from the time I am talking about.  I have published my April newsletter.

Ep. 84 - Comfort Zone | How To Face Your Demons
Hi guys, Today's episode is something I love talking about, it is also the question I usually start my interviews with. As the title says, comfort zone. It takes a bit of time to understand what that is for you, and because of the crisis we are going through right now, you might discover your comfort zone is not what you thought it is. A lot of us are challenged to face our own demons, being stuck at home and needing to readjust to a world that does not make sense. How should you take advantage of these strange times and learn from it? Listen to my stories and share yours.  Until next time, follow your dreams (from the distance or online) and stay true to yourself (but don't be an a**hole). #alinaswonders

Ep. 83 - An Introvert's Guide To Self-Isolate
Hey guys, Are you isolating yourself? Are you keeping a distance from others? Let me guess, you do and now you are bored. I mean I get being lazy (boy do I?) but being bored at home.. when you have access to the internet? That I won't get it. Also, I've never thought of how being an introvert will serve as a super-power. Or my depression will prove helpful. Who knew, right? So from my isolated soul to yours, I've made a list with things you can do not to get bored.  Enjoy! Until next time, follow your dreams (from the distance and online) and stay true to yourself (but don't be an a**hole).  #alinaswonders

Ep. 70 - 2019 | One Last Thought
Hi everyone, This year was the one I did the least travelling abroad and the most within myself.  It was a very challenging year in which I had to face some ugly truth and my mind wandered in a million corners of the world. So, as I am saying in this episode, I had to include some of my overwhelming thoughts I spoke while recording this years' episodes. There is no perfect line in life, but boy am I drawing it like crazy!  I wish you all a peaceful year and a forever heartwarming cuddle when you need it the most. Happy holidays and an even happier new year. And remember to stay true to yourself and follow your dreams. #alinaswonders

Hopefully from now on you will enjoy my stories even more, like the one I am presenting today.  For my birthday I usually do something special, but last year after travelling by myself for 5 months, I asked myself "when I gave myself the world, what else is there?". And so it was time to offer myself the rest of the galaxy!  As I promised in a previous episode, it was time for me to dive into the story of travelling to Atacama Desert. Once again fulfilling a childhood dream.

Ep. 34 - Machu Picchu | One Year Anniversary
Heya to all of you reading this. Last April I was exploring Peru and of course, I couldn't miss the main attraction, Machu Picchu.  It was around 20 years ago when I started reading about Inca and Maya culture. My family had a book subscription which meant we were getting one book per month in the post. And like that, I got really into what Inca culture was about. The lack of internet was good for my reading habits. Since then it has been my dream to visit Machu Picchu. But Peru it always seemed so far away (I mean it actually is from Romania, but so are some dreams). Still, this dream was just like background music in a restaurant. I don't always hear it, but it never stops giving a lovely ambience to the place. And finally, 20 years later my dream came true. It took me one year to talk about it and the actual few weeks to process everything I went through. Listen for the entire story in today's episode. #alinaswonders #Podcoin
