Demorei mas aqui estou eu como prometido para dizer que gostei muito. A Alina e a Gabriela foram muito simpáticas e prestáveis. Adorei todos os sítios por onde passamos e aquilo que nos contaram. É incrível como a Roménia tem tanta história e curiosidades. Aconselho a visita a todos os que querem saber mais e passar um bom momento. Um beijo grande às duas e boa sorte para tudo.
