Why tour here?

Dan Wright said:

“I had initial concerns about visiting Romania, a place where few motorcaravanners had been before, one of which was fear of freezing in a country that borders Ukraine.

“Romania joined the EU in January 2007: it has changed a lot in recent years, but there’s still a chance to see life at an old-fashioned pace, before it disappears forever.

It is a beautiful country, still deeply in touch with its history, while its future is, for once, in the hands of its people.”
