      We will be arriving in Bucharest and departing from Budapest in May and would like to get from one to the other seeing the main sites (towns, castles, etc) in Transylvania. This would be using public transportation. Currently, it seems that we would have at least 15 days just for Transylvania. Suggestions for an itinerary are welcome.
      Thank you.

Yeah .. strange question. :))) I was thinking a place like Cora might have it? Store with a little bit of everything? I don't know if baseball is played or recognized in Romania but, wiffleball is similar only with plastic bats and balls.  I'll upload a pic.

      Anyway, I'll be arriving in early September so, got a month to figure this out.  :p  Thanks again!

      Football viewing in Bucharest

      by firemanphil Online Now May 20, 2014 at 3:23 AM

      Our group will be visiting Bucharest in June this year for four nights to celebrate one of our parties 60th birthday.Several of us have been to Bucharest many times before and therefore know our way around reasonably well and it is likely that our evenings will be spent enjoying the sights and sounds of Lipscani .
      However on our first night there it transpires that England will be playing Uruguay in the World Cup, and as most of us are avid footy fans, we are anxious to find a suitable venue where we can watch the match in a good environment. If any of our Romanian friends can therefore recommend anywhere we would be very grateful. Multsumesc!

      Traffic going from the airport to the city center

      by animsoc Online Now Jan 14, 2014 at 11:20 PM

      The last time I was in Bucuresti, I got a ride from Otopeni to the hotel in Pantelimon. Traffic was HORRIBLE along 1/E60 so the driver turned off on Soseaua de centuri and we FLEW all the way to 3. Is this typical traffic for vineri around 1500? I'm trying to decide whether to go to the hotel first (it's near Unirii) or pick up Cosy first and THEN go there. If I go to the hotel, shower and change, it might be 1800 before I can get to pick her up and I remember traffic at that hour in the city center was a disaster. Any recommendations? Mersi!

      Airport Wifi

      by animsoc Online Now Jan 3, 2014 at 3:15 PM

      Hello all! Well, it's been 2 years but I am headed back to Romania! :)) Something that goofed me up last time was not having a phone to use. So I wanted to ask if there's a way to get a cheap prepaid phone maybe at the airport or something? I don't need much .. just something to text with. I have a smartphone but it's not on the same frequency as Europe. I do have skype on it but obviously that only works with an internet connection. After arrival, I'm going to pick up the rental car and go straight to pick up Cosmina and just need to let her know that I'm on the way so maybe, if there's dependable wifi at Otopeni, I could use skype from there to send an SMS to her phone? We could figure out a phone later I guess. I seriously don't remember what wifi was like there when I was there in 2012 .. or if there were prepaid phones for sale.

      Any info is appreciated. I leave in 2 weeks! Can't wait!!! :D
