I stayed in Oradea for the winter months but when spring came around i needed to be on the road again. And again it was amasing. Of course traveling by public transport can be quite challenging at times but on the other hand, it is easy to meet people and see a lot of the countryside.

I've seen beautiful landscapes. I especially liked the mountains in their autumn dress. And i've seen many impressive medieval cities, off the beaten path places and met incredible people along the way.
And now in spring time i've wandered through the streets of Bucarest, dipped my feet in the danube delta to push our boat afloat again, visited a salt mine and finally made it to Peles and Pelisor in Sinaia. Still haven't seen all of this beautiful country but i've scratched the surface

- Pros:Very beautiful country with very friendly people
- Cons:Sometimes the garbage everywhere takes away the beauty
- In a nutshell:It is a bit off the beaten path, but so very worth visiting
in many small villages this is a very normal sight. Dirt roads, people that carry all sorts of things on a horse and... more travel advice
This city is one of the few places i really really didn't like at all. I'd planned to stay a few days but i left after a... more travel advice
