    Rumänien

    July 28, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Bis um 12 Uhr wurde auskuriert. Dann noch ein Regenschauer abgewartet und los ging's Richtung Rumänien. Die Tagestour nach Bukarest wurde auf 2 Tage aufgeteilt.
    Abends wurde gegrillt. Die Tochter von den Besitzern der Unterkunft hat darauf bestanden uns in den nächsten Ort zum Schlachter zu fahren: "Dort gebe es das beste Fleisch". Sie hatte Recht. Zum Grillen gab es noch eine frisch zubereitete original rumänische Polenta.Read more

    Disembarkation River Duchess

    July 6, 2016 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today we disembacked from the River Duchess to start the land part of the holiday. We are still with people from the cruise for a few more days but staying in Hotels rather than the ship.

    The morning started with a city tour around Bucharest before checking into our Hotel.
    Bucharest is the capital and largest city of Romania, as well as its cultural, industrial, and financial centre. It is located in the southeast of the country on the banks of the Dâmbovița River, less than 60 km north of the Danube River and the Bulgarian border.

    Bucharest was first mentioned in documents in 1459. It became the capital of Romania in 1862 and is the centre of Romanian media, culture, and art. Its architecture is a mix of neo-classical, Bauhaus and art deco, communist-era and modern. In the period between the two World Wars, the city's elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of "Little Paris" Although buildings and districts in the historic city centre were heavily damaged or destroyed by war, earthquakes many survived. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom.

    The third wheel and production of oil

    June 30, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The road to Bucharest was both uneventful and busy with traffic, once I came closer to Ilfov county, a district-like county around the capital.

    One of the two highlights were old, but still operational oil fields.
    Romanian oil production is at an all-time low level this year. It's on a steady decline path, but even with that decline, they were in the top 30 countries by crude oil production in 2017.

    The other highlight was a sign with the name of a village and a municipality it belongs to, and they translate to:
    "Lower Wheel municipality,
    Little Wheel village".
    I felt like the third wheel, so I left 😄
