    Escape if you can!

    November 13, 2016 in Romania ⋅ 🌙 2 °C

    Heute war es unglaublich windig und kalt! Ich bin in meiner Riesenkapuze mit Schal drunter versunken. Wir wollten in den schönen Park Herastrau, aber beim Triumphbogen flogen wir schon weg. So gingen wir wieder in den Carusel bücherladen und tranken leckeren Tee. Später schlenderten wir dann etwas durch eine Riesenmall an der Piata Unirii und dann gings auf zum Escape game!!! Mit Carmen zusammen entkamen wir 42 Minuten!! Woohoooo! Es war einfach super! Dann trafen wir noch Radu, einen Freund Carmen und tranken roten Federweißer ("Must") und beobachteten ein Volkstanzspektakel im "Caru cu Bere".Read more

    neues Hostel, neues "Glück"

    November 11, 2016 in Romania ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Da meine Cousine nun abgereist ist, haben Daniel und ich uns wieder ein Hostel gesucht. Die glorreiche Bewertung auf Trip Advisor spiegelt sich wider im fantastischen Frühstück aus einem weichen weißen Toast mit Marmeladenpampe und Schmierkäseglibber...dem 6er Dorm in dem mal wieder 7 Menschen übernachten (deren unkommunikative Zombieart ja nichtmal Schuld des Hostels ist) und der grade eben Platz für alle Koffer bietet... Und noch einigen kleinen Überraschungen wie Zentralheizungsausfall und Invasion der 15 hünenhaften polnischen Fußballfans. Das Wetter überrascht uns heute allerdings mit fabelhaftem Sonnenschein!Read more

    Day 552: Flight to Bucharest

    August 20, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Short drive back to Prague airport where we dropped off the car with no issues. Hard to believe we've had it for almost three weeks! It's been a good car, though the lack of cruise control was a bit of a bummer. Checked in for our flight with no dramas, though we had a slight issue getting through border control. The lady couldn't work out when Shandos had last entered the Schengen zone (when we went to Croatia briefly in September I think), but was fairly sure she'd overstayed - true. But since we had different surnames she didn't quite believe we were married, and although I started digging around for our marriage certificate (which we carry for this purpose) she let us off with a lecture. But she didn't do an exit stamp, which might be an issue in the future - we'll see.

    Otherwise the flight was fine, and we touched down in Bucharest mid afternoon. Took an Uber into the centre of town where our apartment for the week was located, and met our host with no dramas. The apartment is nice, five floors up above a busy road but well insulated. It's an odd city though - about a third of the buildings are grand old ones like Vienna, and the rest are crumbling concrete edifices like in Bangkok.

    Day 556: Working Day 4

    August 24, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Filled my prescriptions at the pharmacy but otherwise didn't really leave the house. Shandos went and did some sightseeing for a while; there is some interesting stuff to see here but it's not really a European highlight, that's for sure.

    Finalised some next steps as well - after Romania and Bulgaria we'll be heading to Mykonos, Santorini and then a couple of weeks on the Greek mainland before flying to the USA on October 18th!Read more

    Day 553: Working in Bucharest

    August 21, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We've got a whole week here and lots to get done. Editing, writing and that sort of thing. Busy day, though we didn't leave the house much. Very hot outside.

    Sorted out our flights to Hawaii in April next year for my brother's wedding, which is cool!

    Day 555: Working Day 3

    August 23, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Actually left the house properly today! I went out and visited a doctor to get my medication again. Much easier process than in Sweden or the UK, on par with Germany really. I had plenty of tablets left, but I was on track to run out while we were in the USA and there's no way I'm going anywhere near that health system!

    Back to the same restaurant for dinner again!

    Day 554: Working in Bucharest p2

    August 22, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Still going, and will be all week. We have a great internet connection here, and some tasty bakeries right downstairs too. Seems like the Romanians really love their baked goods!

    Went out for dinner to a nearby restaurant/cafe, very tasty food and very cheap too!

    Day 558: Working Day 6

    August 26, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Last day in Bucharest which has flown by! It was just what we needed though, some time in one place to get back on top of things. I didn't quite clear my backlog of videos, I've still got a couple that need doing but otherwise it's all good. I went out for some sightseeing in the morning.

    Not much happening in the old town, but there's a very cool bookshop to see. And of course the ridiculous Palace of the Parliament which is the second-largest office building in the world. It was built by the Communist dictator Ceacescu in the 1980s and of course is 75% empty. These days it has Romania's parliament, but also comes with a colossal heating and electricity bill - enough for a medium-sized city. Crazy.Read more
