7 Wonders of Romania

 7 wonders of Romania - map

During the last few months, I had a special project on my Romanian blog. I asked my readers to take part at the process of electing the 7 wonders of Romania – the most important men-built monuments of my country. The election was organized in two rounds – in the first round, I asked people to nominate 10 “wonders” – the monuments they believe are representative for Romania. After 3 weeks, I counted all the nominations and I set up a list of the 15 most nominated monuments of Romania. In the second round, my readers were asked to vote 7 out of these 15 choices. The response was truly overwhelming. I received thousands of nominations (almost 150 nominated monuments) and almost 4000 votes in the final round. So, I decided that my first post about my country to present you what Romania has the best. Not selected by myself, but by thousands of voters ! So, let’s start a journey amongst the best Romania can show to the world.

Pleading for the train

Train: Interlaken Jungfraubahn

We live in a world of speed where acceleration is pressed more and more often. In the last decade, there have appeared lots of low cost airlines that can get you from one corner of the continent to another for 100 euro and sometimes even less. You jump on a plane and in 3 hours you are on the other side of old Europe. Well under these circumstances why would we have to take a train?

Pamela MacNaughtan in her car on the way to Mongolia

A couple of weeks ago, I heard from Earl that some girls want to buy a Dacia Logan from Romania and drive it to Mongolia. What a hell ! Why Dacia ? And why to Mongolia ? So, slowly, slowly, a discovered the Mongol Rally and the great adventure. Meanwhile, I also discovered two Romanian teams – Daciotii who are driving an old Dacia 1310 and an all-girls team – Fire Fairies on the way to Mongolia as well… but I would like to ask some questions to Pam  and Charlie from SM Stowaway – a Canadian / US all-female team ready to drive on the Silk Road towards the country of Genghis Han.

    Mumbai Escape at Ramada Powai Hotel

    Mumbai is one of the most interesting cities of the billion+ nation of India. It does not have the imperial history of Delhi, it does not have the princely elegance of Jaipur or Udaipur, it does not have the holly spirit of Varanasi and you cannot find any monument which can rival Taj Mahal of […]
