    Top 10 things you should know before visiting Romania

    Romania is a beautiful country. It really needs to be more appreciated by people that live here and of course by people that visit.

    Thomas the Tank Engine and Camping

    My husband I and really enjoy camping! Before we had our lovely daughter we use to go camping quite often but since she was born we avoided camping until this year when she turn 2 years old.
