When we begin to prepare any escape abroad, we always fear this day because it is the only one that does not hold many illusions. Then it is not such, since it usually happens quickly between heaps and memories, here if it is more intense for the few days of adventure. Nevertheless Romania if we were pleasantly surprised because of the change he has experienced in recent years regarding what we had in our head (good roads, good public services, country in recovery ...). Gone is the beautiful Peles Castle, he Bran mysticism, the impressive Rasnov Fortress, the Brasov magic or the waste of Bucharest Parliament. Sensations, which is what we always like to talk about here, too many, especially that snowy dawn on DAY 2 in Bran behind the "Noroc" from last night.
He breakfast at K + K Hotel Elisabeta It is abundant and varied. It is still a modern hotel of a hotel chain (ALL THE INFORMATION HERE), but Romanian traditional breakfasts usually have a good reputation too
The hotel includes the transfer to Otopoeni Airport (although taking the 783 is very simple and leaves you at the door), so we quickly pack up and look again at the last panoramic of a city that still has a lot to improve.
!! More Accesorize !! (This is dedicated to a friend), haha
We say goodbye again Arch of Triumph that we saw yesterday when entering, and that is that we return where we came from because Otopeni Airport is located in the North of the city.
He airport, we haven't talked to you, it's pretty but not very functional. With saying that they make you lower your luggage by hand by a non-mechanical ladder to reach the boarding gate. It is not for an international airport.
At this point we wanted to talk about Romanian people, because we have had an argument again with a girl who does not charge us at LEI at the Airport for some last memories. Romanian people are what LESS we liked about the country (and I say this feeling it in my soul for traveling friends to whom I have a special appreciation and have the other opinion). In our stay in the country (perhaps very small and zoned to draw more conclusions than partial ones although if we have dealt with 30 or 40 people), we have met a character (except exceptions) distant, cold, dry, without appetite and sometimes even arrogant, rude and unpleasant. Examples we bring dozens, from which you steal the parking lot, those who answer you in a bad mood (like having to thank them for serving you a coffee) and the few professionals in the hospitality industry without half a smile and with a derogatory attitude. Not to mention everyone who sees you as a walking LEI and only wants to take a few rooms, although this happens to you in many places.
I repeat that this is nothing more than a 3-day impression and of a particular area of the country that does not have to be general, but as you know we usually say what we see, it is the pity we have encountered, nothing to do with the hospitality we found in Syria, Burma or other countries
Again Easyjet 100% satisfy us again and leave on time. We have returned to take emergency door (as in the first leg) and we go to the sea of comfortable. 3 hours and 35 minutes To land at Barajas Airport where we just eat something (€ 21.50) and finish a new experience.
In the next few days we will put the conclusions of the trip, we will incorporate the entrances and anecdotes to the stories, as well as surely we will speak to you more deeply about the Legend of Vlade Tepes that has pursued us so much throughout the journey. Until then, from our house, a hug for everyone and ... !! Back to work !! to go thinking about future destinations
Isaac and Paula, already from A Coruña (Spain)
