How to start your stay in Bucharest? Probably hanging out with two dudes you met in the back of a minivan from Bulgaria, because that’s not how people die or anything.
(Full disclosure, they’re really awesome guys. My mom’s all like, you meet so many good-looking people in your travels! But it’s still a funny byline for a story: back of a minivan from Bulgaria, because why the fuck not.)
I’ve been to Romania once before, on a weekend trip to Timisoara which I still can’t pronounce when I was working in Serbia — which was a neat but not terribly exciting town. I kind of only was interested in Bucharest because the name is so romantic — Bucharest — but it’s a really cool city. Amazing history and architecture, good food, not very expensive. I stayed at the Podstel Doors hostel, which is pretty new so not perfect, but overall great and definitely recommend.
There were even hostel kitties there, and I got to hang out with my friendly guys’ hostel dog, which always makes my day. 😀
God, I love dogs.
(Please don’t tell my cat.)
In conclusion: a day in Bucharest.
(Moldova is next and the blog post will be even more boring, because I did literally nothing in Chisinau. I’m sorry.)
