2016 in review

I missed my annual trip to Cuba this year, but I reached the top of three mountains instead. By gondola, but that’s ok.

Saw Joe Gaspar Band live in Ottawa with my friend Cris Valean from Montrealimg_0019




My son Santi won the Spelling Bee for Grade 4img_0042 at his school  (February 2nd)

I sang Happy 70th Birthday with few other thousand fans to David Gilmour during his concert in Toronto (March 6)


Enjoyed the view from the top of three mountains: Mt. Tremblant (March), Tampa Brasov (June), and Laber in Bavaria (1683 meters, late October)img_0065img_0490

Enjoyed time with my mother, sister, niece and close friends in hometown Baia Mare. Also had a great time at several img_0919private pools opened all around there, and finally got to climb the Stephan Tower (June/July)

Good family time in July at Midland, Ontario and around Muskokas

Heavy Montreal in August, where I got to meet, after 18 years, Sebi Valean, Cris’ brother, who visited from London UK.img_0275








Traveled to Munich to meet Sebi Macavei (haven’t seen him in 10 years). Got to watch a Bundesliga soccer game in Augsburg, where the local team was hosting Bayern Munich – a longstanding item on my bucket list!

I published 30 episodes of my Romanian-language Radio Trib show Rock din capul lui Motoc.


And finally, enjoyed live music, good books and the company of family and friends. Happy new year everyone!
