Tony, when did you visit Romania? And out of interest, when did you stop globetrotting?
I was last in Romania in 1985, Ming. I actually had Transylvania in mind - Dracula country! I visited Bran Castle which actually advertises itself as Dracula's castle.
As for globetrotting, my last holiday of any sort was 23 years ago and I haven't even spent a night away from here for 15 years! Stuck in a rut!! Although I have been to about 60 countries (the count went up when Yugoslavia split up!) it is really Europe that I have travelled widely in. I have just missed out on four countries in mainland Europe, the three Baltic states, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and also Albania, which was closed to outsiders in my travelling days - although I did drive to the border!
