Hello everyone! I am proud to be able to share with you an extraordinary experience, in the beautiful and rich in culture, Romania. I’ve been lucky enough to find my own self amongst people, linked by the love of travel. After having escorted tours throughout Europe, for a number of years, I’m back now to my favourite place where I had started - and that is at home. Here, every year I fell in love with the light reflected on the French Neoclassic style edifices of my hometown, Bucharest. I love Brasov, Cluj and Sibiu for the atmosphere and its people. Sighisoara looks to me as a tiny patch of the Disney Land.
All this and a lot more... for a good mixture of history, landscapes and local traditions!
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to my country.
