About Alexandra…

Living my life one dream at a time, casual writer, book lover, travel addict, foodie, advocate for STEM education…

I started this blog a few days before my departure to Ghana in 2009. I spent there almost 6 months, incredible times… so if you get the chance to go there, do so. It touched my life and I will always love it 🙂 I continued the blog after deciding to go to India. I spent there 10 months with great people, great food, great experience. Not all sugar and honey but with lots of masala and smiles 🙂

At the beginning I wrote this blog as a way to keep my friends posted with my adventures, both in India and Ghana. I continued it as a way to keep alive all the good things that keep me smiling and crying…

I hope you are enjoying it!

Hey Alexandra,
I am Stef, from AIESEC Cluj.
At the time being I am thinking of an internship in SW Global in Ghana – just had my first interview with someone from the company today – and was wondering about the required visa procedures for Romanians.
Could you please give me more information about the process? If you have time do send me an e-mail at stefania.crihan@gmail.com
Looking forward to your reply.
Have a wonderful day!

Hey Stef,

Good luck with your internship 🙂 Regarding my visa, the Ghanian MC took care of everything. I just sent them a scan of my passport and in one week I received the entry visa for Ghana. When I got there, again they took my passport and pictures and they applyed in my behalf for a resident permit. I didn’t even see the Emigrations Office. This I all the info I can give you and I will e-mail you a copy of my entry visa 🙂 For the entry visa I had to pay 100$ fee.

Take care,

Salut! Eu tocmai mi’am inceput internship’ul in India si mi’am facut blog. Am facut o sectiune cu link’uri catre alti oameni care sunt sau au fost in India si as vrea sa il pun si pe al tau. Sper ca nu te deranjeaza.

Buna 😀 Sigur ca nu 🙂 Deci esti in Bangalore? Am o prietena acolo, a ajuns cam de o saptamana si e un pic pierduta 🙂 E ok daca ii dau mail-ul tau, poate va intalniti?

Da, e ok. Eu tot de o saptamana am ajuns, dar nu stiam ca mai e cineva din Romania in Bangalore. Poti sa ii dai si numarul meu de telefon de aici: 9060462584

Buna Alexandra! Eu si logodnicul ne mutam in Ghana la inceputul lui feb si asa m-am bucurat cand am vaz un blog al unei romance in Ghana, ca sa ma desumflu cand am citit ca ai plecat deja:) As aprecia un sfat, doua… despre viata in Accra si ce ar trebui sa stiu inainte sa ajung acolo.

Multumesc si have fun in continuare in calatoriile in jurul lumii 🙂

Thank you Vivek 🙂 India was a very good experience for me, not easy but great 🙂 My blog is very subjective and I believe everyone should have his/her own experience and draw their own conclusions 🙂

Best regards,
