În tranzit prin Romania… Romania from west to east…

[RO] Chiar daca Romania se invecineaza cu Republica Moldova, tara in care m-am nascut, am crescut, si am studiat, ceea ce inseamna 22 ani din viata mea, trebuie sa recunosc, cu un pic de regret, ca nu am prea avut ocazia sa vizitez si sa descopar frumoasa tara vecina… Prima si ultima excursie facuta in Romania a fost in anul 2006, cind am mers intr-o excursie organizata in orasul Brasov… Aceasta a fost in toamna acelui an, la sfirsit de octombrie, cind diminetile sunt destul de reci, iar serile se lasa devreme… Aceea a fost prima mea iesire din tara, evident ca am fost impresionata sa vad in acelasi weekend o alta tara, o alta natura, cu munti, paduri de conifere si riulete de munte cu apa cristalina, sa vad altfel de case, biserici si castele, o alta arhitectura…

Am mai revenit in Romania de doua sau trei ori, insa de data aceasta doar pentru citeva ore pe la ambasade si oficii de stare civila… Nu aveam dubii ca Romania e o tara foarte frumoasa si care merita sa fie vizitata, pentru ca stiu ca are locuri impresionante, lacuri, mare, si munte, biserici, manastiri si castele…  Insa din pacate nu am mai reusit sa explorez si alte orase sau atractii turistice din Romania…

De cind locuim in Olanda/Belgia am mers acasa (in Moldova) de doua ori cu masina, iar aceasta a fost sansa mea sa descopar o altfel de Romanie, am vazut-o nu cu ochi de turist, ci asa cum e ea zi de zi, cum nu orice turist are sansa s-o vada si sa-i observe frumusetile naturale… Traversind Romania de la vest spre est, am admirat peisaje ce par luate din povesti, am mers pe serpantine ce-ti taie respiratia, nu ma saturam sa privesc spre poalele muntilor cu brazi inalti, m-am indragostit de satele cu case mici, gard de lemn si movile de fin in gradina, tot acolo am mincat cea mai delicioasa mamaliga cu smintina si brinza si cea mai pufoasa piine calda proaspat scoasa din cuptor…

Iar anul trecut am facut un popas peste noapte in zona Bicazului… Dupa ce am admirat frumosul lac Bicaz, am gustat bunatati din bucataria romaneasca, iar dimineata ne-am trezit ascultind ciripitul pasarilor si privind spre peisajele uluitoare ce le vedeam de la balconul hotelului… Dupa micul dejun am mai inspirat inca o data adinc sa ne umplem plaminiii cu aerul super curat de acolo si am pornit mai departe la drum… Iar pe parcursul acestor calatorii tranzit prin Romania am facut si citeva poze cu acele locuri si peisaje minunate…

[EN] Even if Romania borders Republic of Moldova, the country where I was born, grew up and studied, which means 22 years of my life, I should recognize that, unfortunately, I didn’t have many opportunities to visit and discover beautiful Romania… My first and last trip to Romania was in 2006, when I went to Brasov… I was in the autumn, at the end of October, when the mornings are quite cold, and the evenings come early… It was my first excursion abroad, of course I was very impressed to see in two days another country, another nature, with mountains, forests and mountain rivers, I discovered another style of houses, churches and castles, another architecture…

I returned to Romania for several times, but now just for several hours at embassies and other official offices… I never doubt that Romania is a very beautiful country which must be visited, because I know it has wonderful places to be, lakes, sea and mountains, churches, monasteries and castles… But unfortunately, I didn’t have the opportunity to explore other cities and turistic attractions as well…

When we drove home from Belgium/Netherlands I had the chance to discover another Romania, which I saw not as a turist, but I saw it how people living there see it and not every turist had the chance to see its pure beauty… Crossing Romania along from west to east, I admired the amazing landscapes, we drove on the roads with breathtaking views, and I couldn’t stop looking at the hills full of tall trees, I fell in love with the villages with their small old houses and gardens… Also there I ate the most delicious “mamaliga” (a traditional Romanian kind of bread made from corn flour) with sour cream and cheese, and the most tasty and soft bread…

Last year, on our way to Belgium, we stayed for one night at Bicaz lake… We admired the wonderful lake, then we tried again the traditional Romanian cuisine, and in the morning we woke up listening the birds’ songs and admiring the amazing view we had from our balcony… After breakfast we took a deep breath of fresh air and coninued our way… During these transit journeys through Romania I tokk some photos, to remember the unique and wonderful places…
