A last post about Moldova to mention the ‘bungalows parks’ where we slept, trying to find a ‘camping’. Once more, as in Ukraine, the ‘camping’ concept is not implemented in Moldova. But there are some ‘lux’ bungalow parks, that probably just a few of Moldovan people can afford. We payed the equivalent to 50 euros in […]
In Moldova there is good wine. They used to produce a lot for Russia, but Russia does not want to buy anymore to Moldova. So nowadays they are trying to reach new markets… We visited a winery called Chateau Cojusna, not the nicest nor the biggest but the guy who attended us was very friendly […]
Moldova is a little bit bigger than Catalonia, but population is around 1/2 of it (3,6M, including Transdniestr). Almost 700.000 Moldovans live in Chisinau, so it’s quite a bit city. 2nd World War and an earthquake in 1940 let the city almost destroyed, so what we could find now is basically Soviet style (=ugly) buildings […]

And finally… some time, WiFi and electricity to update the blog! Many stories to tell about Moldova, Romania and now Bulgaria 🙂 As usual, we enjoyed our meals in Moldova! Typical ‘mamaliga’ (kind of polenta) everywhere, and very nice desserts… how many extra kg are we getting?
Visiting Orheiul Vechi is one of the top activities in Moldova. Nice to see but not that impressive… Some monks live in very small and old caves, so that makes it impressive. And also the paintings at the church are beautiful. We had slept at the village of Butuceni the night before and we had […]
Moldova is a country that occupies 32.000 km2, so as big a Catalonia, and a population of 3,6 M inhabitants (though some people have told us that in real is much lower, many people are trying to find better living conditions in some other places). But one part of Moldova (Transnistria, 4.100 km2 and 550.000 inhabitants) […]
