    Too funny they brought us on the house two brandies, one of which was tuica. It was yummy. The other one was quite "fiery"

    @Round the world I'm hooked on your build and planning. I'm on page 15 and I can't put my phone down. The thought that you are in the country I was born makes me feel good about this. Now you are my brother!, if ever up in Alberta/Edmonton I would love to meet you and share a few stories!
    Peace be the journey!

    In NE Romania there's 8 monasteries that were built between 1550 to 1650 and still have most of their original exterior PXL_20211017_101055421.MP.jpg frescoes. Amazing. The interiors are even more beautiful, but no photos were allowed.

    Had an interesting day in the country of Moldova. Went on 2 winery tours pretty amazing and only $10 & $20 each, inc 2 bottles. Very good wine. Bottles are $3-$10. Then drove a road and wandered into a rebel Soviet-inspired breakaway part (Transnistria) that Russia and Moldova fought over in 2010, MO lost. We got told to turn around at the border crossing. Got our cheapest gas of the trip, only $4.70 per gallon! But he didn't take credit cards, so left the truck and walked to find a ATM. Then later in the day got pulled out of traffic by a cop and briefly questioned but then they jumped in their car and chased after someone else. Tomorrow we head back to Romania

    These are five year old sparkling wine that gets rotated every other day, by hand, all 500,000 bottles!

    Last night's wild camping, felt like Iowa as there's lots of corn grown, except for the dogs that barked all night. Some of the corn is being harvested by hand

    Moldova has a long history of wine making. I'm sure you know that Moldova and Romania share the same language, flags too are nearly identical (other than the crest that Romania also has). Republic of Moldova used to be part of Romania until the soviet union annexed it...the romanian population was displaced in other parts of soviet union and in turn Russian speakers were placed in Moldova. In fact half of Moldova is in Romania. For a long time they were told that the "moldovan" language is not the same as Romanian :eek:.

    Very cool, my family burnt a lot of castles, I’m a direct descendant of Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland, we descended down from his oldest daughter Majorie. Gotta love Ancestry. I must own a few castles in Scotland. :)

    That's totally cool! My wife's mom was one of the "gentry" and grew up in a fancy keep in Aberdeen. Had an arranged marriage at 18 with a suitable Scots man, ran away instead and never went back. Family's historys are fascinating. Maybe cause mine is boring in comparison!

    The Soviets/Russians really f"*+;ed things up for a lot of the eastern European countries in the 1950s by outright killing or sending 100,000s of thousands from every country they occupied after WWII to the gulags. And then emigrating thousands of Russian people into these same countries. Today now they can claim that they are protecting their people when they made war with the Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova. Very devious. Ok, im stopping, don't want to get in trouble
