We at Ticket To Nomadland are wanderlust travelers trapped into corporate offices. That’s why whenever Octavian, my boyfriend, sends me snapshots from his travels across the country I feel the urge to escape my laptop and join him.
A lot of the photos he sends are really great shots of Romanian scenery. I thought I’d share them with the world in an effort to convince you to come visit us here in Romania. (click on the photo for best view).
In May rapeseed is in full bloom.
Spring is the perfect season to visit Tulcea, a county close to the Danube.
Octavian’s ears were frozen as he stopped by the side of the road to take the photo. In January temperatures can drop to -15 Celsius.
This mountain small resort is close to Bucharest (2 hour drive) and a great alternative for sightseeing during the weekend.
The name tells the story best: The Colored Forrest in Dumbrava. There’s actually a kids tale in Romania named ‘Wonderful Dumbrava’. Makes you wonder if this was the inspiration or the other way around.
Just a small vineyard close to Tulcea. Come visit in autumn and you’ll get to taste Romanian wine.
Sight from the old city centre in Buzău.
Cat in this photo is as lazy as I am during warm summer afternoons.
Yes, sunsets are this lovely orange colors when you’re in Neptun.
This is the Black Sea during its low season, when you can still listen to the waves uninterrupted by swarms of city people escaping their hot flats.
I couldn’t resist including this. Jump in and you can paddle this small boat across the lake.
Sometimes I do get to see these great sights in our getaways. We go back to the places he pitches to me via chat. What I find on these road trips is that there is beauty on the roads of Romania, fun awkwardness in its cities (check out the huge nail in Sighetu Marmației!) and serenity on its beaches. That’s why I fall in love with these places in Romania, places I challenge you to come visit; they are as raw and unedited as they look in these photos.
The windmills in Elefterie Murgu are part of UNESCO heritage. No filter added to this breathtaking view.
Cats sometimes roam the roofs of Bucharest. He feeds them and sends photos of his shy friends.
This is a gem I got to see this year after he sent this photo. A lake in Banat, it’s as peaceful as it looks.
This is the northest city in Romania. It is said that here is where the map is hanged by a nail (se agață harta în cui). Locals proved they have a sense of humor and actually have this huge nail on display.
This is the sea resort to be at during the summer if you’re into crazy parties. It started as the home for hippies and rockers, but now it welcomes everyone.
Sibiu is known world wide for FITS, a theatre festival that brings in people from all over the world in June.
If you do decide to visit us, drop me an email and we’ll meet over coffee to tell you everything you need to know.
