      Agra, Udaipur, Jodhpur or Jaisalmer?

      India Sep 11, 2016 at 9:49 AM

      Friends VT

      I am traveling in November to India, and, in my itinerary, appointed for two full days to Agra, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer. However, I have one more day should I add to any of these cities. I ask for a suggestion (knowing that all suggestions are subjective): Which of these 3 cities devote one day more, getting a total of 3 days?
      Thank you and good travel for all!!!

      English, German, Italian or Russian?

      Chisinau Apr 10, 2016 at 7:31 AM

      I will be in Chisinau this summer and am curious about local lingual preferences. I do know a few words of Romanian courtesy of a former girlfriend and living in a Balkan neighborhood, but not really enough to manage even simple transactions. Everyone speaks English everywhere of course, and I am fluent, so I know that is always an option, but I worry a bit about the tax on it and that speaking it can sometimes provoke animosity. German I speak well, but I am not sure if it is still widely understood and I have the same concerns about speaking German as English, possibly even stronger. Italian I am OK with but I (and most others) seldom speak it outside of Italy or within my own family. It is similar enough to Romanian that I raise it as a possibility because it allows me to read Romanian and sometimes get the gist of spoken speech. Russian is a language I only have the basics of, learned on the street and can use to get through simple transactions. My concerns are I don't speak it very well, and have found that it is only grudgingly used in other parts of the Balkans.

      Which would you use to open a conversation or perform a transaction?

    • overstayed in moldova

      Moldova Mar 9, 2016 at 5:00 AM

      I came to Moldova 7 months ago to be with my girlfriend while we waited for her to get her financee visa to America. I know I was only allowed 90 days. Originally the plan was to stay here for 90 days, then go to Germany and stay there for 90 days as I would be going from a schengen zone to a non schengen zone, at which point we should have her visa (since we applied for it over a year ago) and we would go home to the US. However, things changed and we decided to part ways, as friends, and she decided to move to Germany (long story). I agreed to go with her for a few months until she is comfortable living there and then go home.

      She applied for a Romanian passport and got it, but by the time she did, it put me well over the 90 day limit. We were living together, she didn't have a job, her own place, a young woman alone, etc... so i stayed, instead of leaving and coming back later, to take care of her.

      Anyway, we are finally ready to leave and fly to Germany. My concern is, I get to the airport what happens? I can plead stupidity saying I didn't know the 90 day law applies to non schengen zone areas as Moldova is not a schengen zone country. But my concern is that they will force me to fly to America and not just let me leave, or arrest me and i miss my plane, or a hundred other scenarios. I am voluntarily leaving, i violated no laws while here, and i will never come back to this country again as my reason for coming here will be living in Germany. I also worry Germany will deny my entry even though I have never overstayed in a schengen zone and i have no intention of being in Germany longer than 2 months. Surely they wont make me fly home and then fly back? What would be the point if I still have 90 days I can spend in a schengen zone?

      Anyone experience anything like this before ?

      crossing border between Moldova & Romania

      Moldova Jul 17, 2015 at 12:54 PM

      I am planning to visit Moldova and Romania in mid September to early October. My plan is to fly into Moldova first, visit Romania, and return to Moldova. How easy is it to cross the border between Moldova and Romania? I've been hearing about border officials charging all kinds of dodgy "taxes" and "fees" at the border. I will be traveling by land (bus, maxitaxis). I am not required to obtain a visa to enter Moldova or Romania.

      On a different note, do you know if it will be too late to see sunflowers in Moldova or Romania in mid September?

      Hi, I am thinking of short visit by the end of September but I am a bit concerned regarding current situation in Dniestr surroundings. In polish press and on the web one can find some bad news (maybe not the riots but some actions going on). Is it safe to travel with own car all over Moldova (including Dniestr part)? I am thinking of ~7 days trip.

      And second part of question - what should I expect regarding campings standard? I know western European ones with "everything on board" and others with only "space for a tent" on site ;)
