Yes, in a few days we will set off for Romania, where we will spend ten days exploring a country that in some ways is part of my multi-ethnic heritage. There might be some sad moments if I let myself dwell on the stories my mother told about her sister and husband who were executed in Bucharest during war times, and the fact that my father's brother was a prisoner of war in a camp there as well.
Romania is a country that is just beginning to reveal its history, beauty and charm to travelers who are interested in exploring the Balkans. And for me, wouldn't it be great to connect with some present-day Vlachs!
Stay tuned. The adventure will soon begin.
