ROMANIA: Bucharest – Books & Rest

Posted by on Jun 5, 2019 in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I took a bus from Budapest at 4:45 am and it took all day to get to Bucharest. We pulled into the station at 8:30 pm and got caught in a rainstorm on the way to my hostel. I headed back to the old town after securing my umbrella. I found an interesting area with pleasant architecture.

Unfortunately aside from the plethora of restaurants, there was an excess of strip clubs, massage parlors, and other lurid forms of entertainment. I pretty much don’t give a bugger about what the city has to offer since I’m more interested in focusing on working on my blog and some serious introspection. I was already here once before for a visit and saw Dracula’s Castle and the rest of the Bucharest essentials.

After a day of crap food and excess of time stuck in a seat, I kept my spirits up with good movies and books.

Here you see a fountain that took a cue from the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. In the evening, the fountains would dance in time to the music.

    Hail my friend! I’ll have to look up the part of your blog where you saw Dracula’s castle, I’m sure I’d find that fascinating (though the Impaler was clearly no Bela Lugosi)!

    I really love reading your exploits my friend. Time once again to plug your blog again, you deserve WAY more readers!

    You’re very kind Doomcock, but it is very much a fun hobby-blog for friends, family, and anyone who happens to stumble upon it. Next year is when things get serious and monetized. At the very least, it will have a name everyone can grok, The Travel Zone.
