Romania is a wonderful country and in many ways very different from Denmark and the Northern Countries. We have started this project in hopes of encouraging Nordic tourists to leave their comfort zone and classical holiday destinations and embarc in an adventure. In Romania you can find everything: from breathtaking mountains to dens forests and cities with a rich history and cultural life. Also, there are the specific flavours, accents and just everyday events which you can only experience if you spend a few days at the bottom of the Carpathians mountains.
Our team is Danish-Romanian, getting together the best of both worlds. Why is this country special? Prince Charles himself stated about Romania that “I hadn’t been aware just how extraordinary this part of the world is with all its biodiversity, the wildflower meadows. (…) It just seemed to me, particularly this area of the Carpathian mountains, to be literally the last unspoilt, untouched area.” So if it is good enough for royalty, why shouldn’t you give it a chance?
Hi all! I am Amanda, and I have started Earth 2 Mars in early 2017. This project appealed to me because I really like the idea of opening the borders of Romania and showing how beautiful it really is. I also think that the foreign media focusing solely on the negative aspects of this country do us no justice.
I am now living in Timisoara, a big city and I have previously worked for international corporations, but I am also raised at the countryside, so I can say I know both Romanias: the big developed cities and also the beautiful small villages, located at the bottom of the Carpathian mountains. What I really like about this country is its vast landscape with hills, rich low lands, green forests and breathtaking mountain peaks.
So, I am here to offer insight and also to bring the Romanian perspective.
My name is Lars Bo Thomsen, and it is me who has started the E2mTravel project. I lived in Romania in 2015, because my job at the time required it. While I lived in Romania I had visits by many friends and family members, all of whom were pleasantly surprised by the country. Most Danes believe that Romania is just a poor country. It is far from the truth, and everyone who visited me has since returned to experience the country again.
There is no doubt that Romania is not at all in line with the rest of the EU member states, especially when it comes to economy. However, I have come to love Romania and the Romanians for the country’s and population’s diversity (diversity in nature, because there are large flat areas, mountains, waterfalls, fascinating wildlife and also diversity in relation to humans). There are people who still live in primitive houses without electricity and central heating. In the next city, Microsoft, Amazon, Continental and Renault have offices where some of the world’s most talented IT developers and engineers design your next computer, ebook reader and car.
I would highly recommend traveling to Romania. There is no need to travel to India to experience something new. Take the plane and come to Romania in just two and a half hours.
