Traditional Nepalese Cusine
Hofmühlgasse 21, 1060 Wien
(13A St. Esterhazygasse; U4 St. Pilgramgasse)
Evening hosted by Madalina Serban.

blue sky stuff, an Austrian cultural association developing and supporting a number of community initiatives, is inviting people in and around Vienna to join a dining evening with traditional Nepalese cusine and shared stories about Nepal. Dining will take place on August 2nd, 2013, starting 7PM, in the YAK & YETI restaurant on Vienna’s 6th district Hofmühlgasse.

The dinner on the upcoming August 2nd is the latest of the Adventure Dining get-together events, and the first of a series on Nepal. The series will be hosted by Madalina Serban, a young Romanian woman who will be sharing her stories of discoveries, true happiness and harsh, but meaningful personal growth she experienced during the months she spent there in the autumn of 2011, and also of her life before and after.

Born December 1st, 1978 in Bucharest, Romania, Madalina spent the first 29 years of her life in her home town with the belief the place one was born into, was the place where the accomplishments should come. Soon after having embraced an international career in marketing and online communications, the world opened as she started her first travels within Europe. Her understanding changed and she become to think of the possibility of living in a less hectic place than Bucharest still was 15 years after the communism had fallen down. The end of 2008 brought Vienna into her life and a journey that would last almost four years began: she moved to Austria to continue her work and life. Yet, she walked on a far more truthful path in the late summer of year 2011, when she left her job and her career that far, to follow an inner call. The trip to Nepal that followed proved to be the beginning to a new chapter.

Madalina’s life-changing experience, her love for children and Nepal everafter, is all captured in the book she decided to publish soon after her return to Europe in spring 2012. All paperback and e-book royalties are donated to Nepal Volunteers’ Hand Children Home that hosted her for the last five weeks of her stay in Nepal.
