Do you want a holiday fairy-tale, are you an aficionado of a tale landscapes , or you're just a glutton or winter sports enthusiast, or fun to the max, then Romania is the ideal place for an unforgettable vacation.

Anyway, the FIRST STOP you should do to BRASOV, located in southeastern Transylvania, into the curvature of the Carpathian Mountains, at 161 km from

Bucuresti,the Romanian capital, on the DN1. Here you can find anything you might be interested in or entertain you: history, culture, mountain, sport including winter sports, customs and traditions, traditional restaurants or simply select, clubs, sophisticated shops but also traditional, elegant SPAs and health centers. And maybe, who knows, you may meet some vampires, as Bran Castle (called of Dracula's) is only 25 km from Brasov.

You can choose to accommodate yourself to a 5 stars hotel and pay £65 per night or to a 3 stars guest house with £15 pounds per night and even less.

OK! And now let go to have BIG FUN! Going to CINEMAX 5D to Bran (cinema in 5 dimensions) where the special effects are impressive, the seats are moving and the sound is one of exception. And while in Bran, it is indubitable necessarily to have to go to the CASTLE where it may be left few vampires from DRACULA's times!

Brasov is a city full of history and culture, as it was attested documentary in 1235 and having a strong German mark, which is seen in architecture and traditional crafts, food and costumes. The OLD CENTER is truly romantic and impressive represented in medieval constructions like: Bastion of the Drapers, Ropes men and Furriers, the Castle Museum, the Town Hall, the Black Church, the White and Black Towers and the Butchers Tower, the Graft Bastion with the fortified bridge, the Blacksmiths Bastion.

Or maybe you prefer to do sport: Bungee Jumping, Skydiving, Rock Climbing, Motorized hang gliders, Rafting, Paragliding, Riding, Flying by Helicopter or Balloon, Snowboarding, Skiing.

If you love cultural there are dozen of events in Brasov and surroundings like: the Days of Brasov, Romania craftsmen fair, the International Pop Music Festival named the Golden Stag, the Jazz Gala, the Snow Festival to Bran, Bran Sculpture International Festival.

Even the shopping in Brasov are a highly interesting activity. The traditional markets and small shops attract tourists but also the spectacular malls.

This presentation is only a small part of what represents Brasov like a Dream Holiday. If you want to learn more about the city from Carpathians you have only one solution: take the plane and fly to Romania!

Comment: In this very brief overview of Brasov, I've included a few photos from Google images, because my photos are too old and do not have the content I wanted. I wrote the text as a leaflet in 2014 when I attended the English language Functional skills.

GYPSIES (who they are and what they want)-1st PART

I will have several posts related to gypsies. I will not write here, what I read through different texts or heard from people, but about my and not at last Calin's experience connected with gypsies. I can not say they're a people, that they, in fact, were spread worldwide and took not only the physiognomy of the people, in whose country they settled down (or ... not), but also the language, worship, habits and even nationality.

When I was a child, in Romania, my parents went to Indian films, which in a certain period were very popular there (I remember "the Vagabond" with Raj Kapoor). At that time, i.e. in the Communist era, there were many cinemas in Constanta (the city where I lived almost half of my life). Wherever Indian films were broadcast, there were huge queues at the ticket box office. The Romanians had not enough seats, because of the gypsies, who crowded the entrance with their families. That's because, they said, that the Indians were their brothers;…

BOEUF SALAD (more than the recipe)

It is a mixture of vegetables and meat, boiled, linked with mayonnaise. This salad, very tasty, may have been made with beef (because of the name), but we the Romanians make it with chicken. Anyway, I think you'll like! I tried this recipe "on several Brits" and they liked it. They did not say this out of complacency, but because they ate as the Romanians do, meaning, a lot! This salad is served, usually at holidays: Christmas, birthdays, memorable events. I make it quite often, because

I like it and that it is quite healthy and feeding. I do not use to weigh dishes ingredients, nor I taste it for salt and spices, which makes me a talented cook, because very rare a dish is not cooked similar to Masterchief (as Calin says). Anyway, I feel replete, up to ears, of cooking. Let me tell you from where I take the ingredients to cook. Here, in the UK there are specific continental stores ("Polish" stores), usually located in cities and towns, on the High st., Portlan…

PROTEST against the Conservative Party campaign for the general elections 7.05.2015

Who took our dignity and self-respect!

I’d have comments on each paragraph from the electoral leaflet of the Conservative Party' candidate in the ---constituency; but in this open letter, I shall refer and consider only the paragraph entitled "Immigration". Some may consider that it “instigates to racism”, but I am more tolerant and open to arguments in order to refute this opinion.

Paragraph, from Sir Edward Leigh electoral leaflet, inserted here: “IMMIGRATION: Our Regaining control over our borders is an absolute priority. Free movement of EU citizens doesn’t work when you have countries as diverse as Britain or Sweden on the one hand and Bulgaria and Romania on the other. We need to see a move to a more balanced, managed system of migration that restricts economic migrants while allowing talented people in.”

My family consists of two members: me and my son. We live on the hill. My name is Marylena C.Goia; I am 61 years old, a Romanian national and permanent resident …
