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.
