Dag 24 – Rondreis Roemenië – donderdag 20 september 2018 – Laatste dag van onze begeleide rondrit. Met in de voormiddag bezoek aan Arad, een stad nabij de Hongaarse grens (50km) met een stadscentrum vol met historische gebouwen. Hier ook zijn de verschillende kerken getuigen van de opeenvolgende migraties van de verschillende Balkanbevolkingsgroepen die hun eigen culturen meebrachten naar deze streek. Buiten een Joodse Synagoge zijn er 3 kathedralen op een km afstand. Een prachtige Orthodox-Servische, een Evangelische met Hongaarse en Saksische wortels en een Katholieke vanwege de Oostenrijkse Habsburgers. Nadien konden we nog rustig genieten van het schitterend weer dat we hier meemaken en 's avonds afscheidsdiner met de hele groep. Morgen gaat het voor ons richting home, met waarschijnlijk een eerste tussenstop omgeving Wenen.... read more

Dag 23 – Rondreis Roemenië – woensdag 19 september 2018 – Reisdag naar Minis (nabij Arad) 200km. In de voormiddag deden we eerst een paardenkarrenwandeling van 3uur door de boerenbuiten. Gewoon met 4 Roemeense open boerenkarren. We konden gaan zitten op 4 losse planken die men dwars op de laadbakken gelegd had. Resten van hooi lagen nog op de bodem. Oude paardendekens op de zitplanken moesten het ons comfortabel maken. Ik vermoed dat die Roemeense boeren er het hunne van dachten. Wie wil daar nu 3 uur opzitten ? Daarna moesten we nog 200km verder naar het westen tot bijna aan de Hongaarse grens. Over de E68, die plots geen autostrade meer was, wel met druk truckverkeer over de ons reeds bekende 2-vaks bobbelwegen. 'Tetitatutis' ! Zei ooit iemand.... read more

Un nou oras al tarii noastre care se lasa descoperit si care ne-a impresionat prin arhitectura si reamenajarea cladirilor sale. Am ales asupra pensiunii Phoenix, curata, AC, minibar. Pret 100ron-o noapte.... read more

Arad. Descoperim orasul, a doua oara. Se lasa descoperit. Dar parca tot Timisoara si Oradea atrage mai mult. Un punct usor de oprire cand pleci sau revii acasa. Cazare - pensiunea Alexander, o noapte 135 ron, camera mare, curata, AC, TV plasma, mobila clasica, multe flori pentru un spatiu rece, dar parca neprimitoare. Gazda nu s-a dovedit saritoare sau poate asa este obiceiul. Este perfecta pentru parcare, are ceva locuri, dar se ajunge cu taxiul in centru. Pentru masa de seara am ales o locatie pe malul Muresului recomandata, dar parea pustie fiind in afara sezonului poate si faptului ca unii isi faceau de lucru in amenajarea ei, fapt putin deranjant cand servesti masa. De remarcat ca in Arad ca nu exista un fel de centru vechi cu multe terase de servit masa, ci mai multe ... read more

Going to the movies in a foreign country can be an experience - will the film be in English, or dubbed? Will there be subtitles? How much will it cost? Are there concessions? Previews? I usually try to go to the movies while I'm on my various world travels. First, I like movies, and I want to keep up with the good ones. And second, it's a great cultural experience. Some places have reserved seating only - you purchase a ticket for an individual seat (which is how a few theaters in America do it) - or they have a general admission policy (which is how most theaters in America do it). In Romania, I've had both of these occurrences - with The Avengers in Cluj, I could sit where I wanted, though only the front ... read more

Statiune recunoscută pentru lacul geo-termal cu flora datand din tertiar. Se mai gasesc numeroase izvoare cu apa minerala care sunt indicate in tratarea afectiunilor reumatice degenerative. Acum nu este mai mult decat o statiune comerciala. Si cum noi eram in trecere pentru cateva ore ne-am cazat la Pensiunea Cristian, tarif 100ron, parcare.... read more

Thursday, May 28th to Saturday, May 30th. Our stay was short but nice in Oradea. There were three reasons we picked Oradea to be our exit point out of Romania. One, it was close to Budapest. Two, Tages really wanted to visit the popular Bear Cave. Three, Oradea has the only strictly vegetarian restaurant in Romania. We had read a vague discription about a camping ground in Oradea and we figured we would get to Oradea and figure it out. We didn't have internet access in Sighisoara so we were not able to plan as well as we usually do. We arrived early in the morning after our terrible train ride so we felt a lack of sleep and a bit of confusion. The taxi drivers at the train station were more aggressive than in Sighisoara ... read more

Arad. Un oras mare situat cat mai aproape de vama. Poate de aceea am stat deja de doua ori. Prima oprire Pensiunea Pascha, tarif 70ron, camera ok, un lobby maricel, gazdele prietenoase avand in vedere ca am ajuns la lasarea intunericului in jur de ora 12.00. Am stat cateva ore si nu am avut timp sa vedem nimic. De aceea am zis sa revenim si cu alta ocazie si iata ca am ajuns. De data asta am stat la Vila Cristian, tarif 120ron, camera spatioasa, parcare generoasa. Ambele pensiuni sunt situate cam la 15 minute de mers pe jos de centrul orasului.... read more

Hello Everyone, We made it to Rome! Not overnight, of course, considering that it took us 22 hours just to get to Venice. We left Romania on Friday, May 9, Bethany’s birthday. We had birthday cake with Peter, Hailey and the team, and then had a cake at Vasili and Ana’s place, a wonderfully hospital couple. They live in a typical Romanian apartment building; very interesting! Not exactly what we are accustomed to. We left Peter and the team at the Sibiu Airport. It was then that we had to drastically alter our travel plans; we had planned to drop south into Croatia and Slovenia and then into Italy, but we did not have insurance on the motorhome in Croatia so couldn’t go that way. Peter said that the border people will turn you away if ... read more

Hello Everyone, This is our last day here; we've not had internet connection since Monday to blog, thus you haven't heard from us. We've had a great couple last days. On Tuesday I went with the nurse to various homes to visit elderly people in the little outlying town of Lunca. It was amazing to get inside their homes and listen to their stories. (through a translator). The houses were very, very poor. One room in the house serves as kitchen, livingroom, bedroom. The room was probably about twelve by twelve. The house was made up out of two rooms, but two families live in it. The lady had a terrible toothache, but no access to a dentist, doctor, painkillers, or antibiotics. We were able to provide her with some medication. There are animals in every ... read more
