  • Romania Day 1Day 1: (WED) Bucharest. Arrived in town approximately 1500. We met our tour guide Marcel, and we headed towards the hotel. The traffic was so heavy, and the roundabouts daunting. So many cars, not abiding by any lane lines, all Posted by TNTravel in Romania | May 1, 2017
  • Bucharest's Potato on a Stick.After a half a century of wars followed by decades of tyrannical rule under the egotistical despot Nicolae Ceaușescu, Romania was on its knees.
