|klein beetje gequilt/ a little bit of quilting|
Het was een heerlijke vakantie. Roemenië is een heel ander land dan Nederland, veel meer uitersten. Rijkdom tegenover extreme armoede. Paard en wagen tegenover de modernste auto's. We zagen veel natuur, mooie huizen, sommige vervallen, anderen prachtig opgeknapt en ook veel huizen half afgebouwd, waar dan wel in werd gewoond. Ook was er veel qua geschiedenis te beleven, uit de tijd van de Daciërs, die nog voor de Romeinen leefden en ook uit de Romeinse tijd.
En dan nu? Koffer inpakken, ik vertrek morgenochtend voor drie dagen Birmingham, International Festival of Quilts!!! Yoehoe!!!
The summer holidays we have spent in Romania, which was quite a travel (about 2000 km)! This trip we cut into pieces with nice (city)trips in between and I had stipulated that I only wanted to travel to Romania when we would be there at least 3 weeks, otherwise it was not worth the hassle of the long journey ...
It was a wonderful holiday. Romania is a very different country than ours with many more extremes. Wealth versus extreme poverty. Horse and wagon opposite the most modern cars. We saw many nature, beautiful homes, some declined, others wonderful refurbished and also many houses half completed but used to live in. There was also much to experience in terms of history, from the time of the Dacians, who even before the Romans lived and also from the Roman era.
We had delicious summery weather, around 30 degrees, not as humid as in Netherlands, so great weather to even undertake activities. We hiked, visited villages and cities and even swam, or rather floated, in the salt lakes. I enjoyed sitting outside with book or crafts (especially the reading), badminton or table tennis with the kids and just rest, nothing obliged. Even not cooking, my DH did that every day with love!
And now, I am packing my suitcase. I will leave for Birmingham tomorrow morning, attending the International Festival of Quilts for three days!!! Yoehoe!!!
