I'm in the throes of organising a flight to Bucharest. I'm just trying to work out if it would be easier and/or cheaper to fly via Heathrow.
Holiday. I'll be in Bucharest for a day or so. After that, I'll head out to the Carpathians and then to the Danube Delta. Still considering whether to do a side trip to see a friend in Leiden. Seems to a shame to go all the way there and not nip over to the Netherlands. But if I do that, it's only a short way to the UK...And I also have friends in Stockholm.
It's too late in the evening to be sorting out flights. I will do something silly!
I haven't been that far North, but last time I was there we drove up to Sibiu and Brasov following a trip to Mamia for the beach and Tulcea for the Delta - stunning watching the pelicans on the Delta and the well-dressed penguins getting off the huge cruise-ships which come up from Amsterdam through Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Serbia! Getting quite envious here in UK, but I am outside today fitting out my van as a camper with a view to doing a "Grand Tour" through France, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and then back through Hungary, Germany and the Netherlands so I will contain it!
That sounds like great fun!
actually, realising that "down under" is only a 17 hour flight and ten minute taxi ride away is quite awe-inspiring and makes me wonder why I have never been! No.1 son first went when he was three and has been a couple of times since. I've got "family-by-marriage-although-now-divorced-so-does-that-still-count...-yes-they're-Italian" way down in Melbourne!
I'm always a little scared to enter these threads.
Backing out quietly...
Welcome!. We're almost neighbours - I'm in the Southern HighlandsHello! I'm just dipping my toe into the AW world. I've just joined. I live in a little beach town on the far south coast of NSW. All my writer friends are American, though. I should really find some local ones...
Last time I moved my fridge, I found a stray Malteser under it. Tragic day, that. Such a waste of a perfectly good bit of sugar*
*Sadly, the Malteser was about a decade past the "20 second rule".
