Romania’s countryside

I keep telling myself to post more often on this blog but the time is so short….

Finally, as the sun is shining again and spring is here, I feel like sharing with the world all the beautiful places from Romania.

Today I ran into some old photos from my parents house, my husbands grandparents, roadside from Tulcea area, Rm Valcea area, Apuseni, Prahova, etc. It doesn’t really matter the place, it’s just the feeling you will experience once you get yourself  a car and start driving throughout my country.

It’s just…picturesque! and smells like holiday too:)

Barbeque National Day: May 1st

So much for the religious holidays and traditions! Once May 1st arrives, the summer season is on and what more asppropriate way to celebrate than with a barbeque?

 So on this day, all Romanians go to a picnic and make a barbeque with: chicken thighs or wings, pork and of course “mici” (minced meat looking like small kebabs, mostly from pork). They are very popular, cheap and go perfectly with fresh white bread and mustard.

Alongside with the meat, you will also see on the grills champignons, potatoes made in the charcoals, all seasoned with tomatoes and cucumber salad.

Do not miss if you want to see the real Romania on 1 st of May. Unfortunately as everybody wants to sit on the grass and make a fire in the woods, the results are real disasters for the environment so hopefully in the future everything will be better organized.
