Discover Romania

Hello everyone, today I`ll share with you the second part of my holiday, my trip back home to Romania. I am actually very proud to be Romanian and hate it when people have stereotypes about us. While the media chooses to portray only the bad things, it`s wrong putting everyone into the same category based on that. When I first moved to London everyone was shocked when they found out I was Romanian. I used to hear all the time how polite or mannered I am for someone from Romania and while that was meant as a compliment, it also made me a bit sad. Most of us are decent people, with good jobs and no, Romania does not look like a third world country like it`s presented in movies. Sure, there are some very poor areas, but I think that`s the case with a lot of countries. 

Some cities are more developed than others, but when I think about my country I remember the Sea, the mountains and some of the most breathtaking outdoor places. Even Prince Charles fell in love with parts of Romania, proving that if you don`t take into consideration all that media bullshit, you`ll discover some amazing places and people.








I always loved escaping from the madness of modern cities and retreating to places where you can contemplate. While I was visiting the Mountains and the surroundings I felt a peace I did not come across in a while. Even better, there were a lot of traditional villages and monasteries, where you were able to return to simpler times.







I may be biased, but I strongly believe that Romania it`s one of the most beautiful countries in the world. So if you have a chance to visit it, don`t hesitate, it will surprise you.

  1. Beautiful country indeed!

    Us foreigners tend to suffer from these stereotype comments all the time. I've heard my fair share of BS..."Brazil, the land of samba and naked women", "But you're white, you cannot be Brazilian", "Ronaldinho, football, Pelé"...Like seriously?!

    And I'm biased too, so if you ever want beautiful weather and beaches, Brazil is an option ;)

    1. Yeah, Brazil looks like a wonderful country. The funniest line I heard about Romania was: Is Dracula real? I mean, how can you even think that?:))
