As you may have noticed by now, our posts are primarily enthusiastic and positive. The main reason for this is because we always tend to focus on the good memories and forget about the bad ones. Another reason is that we are fond of cultural and natural diversity. We manage to find and appreciate beauty no matter how well it’s hidden. That’s why we have fallen in love with almost every destination we have visited. Bucharest is among the cities that didn’t manage to find its special place in our hearts, though. Sure, we have sweet memories from the time we spent there. But it somehow failed to make us want to go back again soon or to stay a little longer. So, “Why read on?” you may think. Because there are certain things to do in Bucharest that you cannot experience elsewhere.
Romania had been on our minds for quite some time before deciding to plan a trip there after all. Besides the allure of the Transylvanian countryside, the prospect of visiting a country which still breathes recent history also fascinated us. Bucharest is like a huge living museum constantly recreating its troubled past. The best way to explore the capital of Romania is by taking a walking tour from many available. We wanted to learn as much as possible about Romania’s communist past. Therefore, we chose the Bucharest walking Tour of Communism.
There’s no better way to get to know a city than wandering around its streets. We absolutely love exploring new destinations on foot. Especially when the weather is fine, nothing can keep us from strolling around for hours. London is one of our favourite cities to do so. The UK capital has many different faces and this is what makes its walking routes all the more fascinating. We particularly enjoy walking along the South Bank of the Thames. Our favourite South Bank walk in London starts from the Tower of London (which is actually on the north bank of the Thames, oops!) and goes all the way to the London Eye and Westminster Bridge. Our itinerary includes the entire length of the riverside pedestrian path known as The Queen’s Walk.
