One day trip outside the city – and some funny stuff :D

There are days in which you simply don’t want to stay in the city. You want to go somewhere and see something.

My husband and I, we have some days like that. We choose sometimes to go somewhere with the dog and our son. Usually it’s a trip at the airfield – where Andrei flies his RC airplane. But we weren’t in the mood for such a trip this day.

It was December 31st. The final day of the year. I wanted to go somewhere I’ve never been before. A one day trip somewhere relatively close to Bucharest – for in the evening we should get back, pick Eric from my mom’s and spend New Year’s Eve together. So Andrei suggested to go see the church made of one tree, than to visit a cave and then Hurezi Monastery.

Giving that the route involved passing through (or near) Ramnicu Valcea, a city where we have some friends, we gave them a call on December 30th to see if they are in Ramnic in the morning of the final day of the year. And they were. So we planned to visit them too 😉

6 o’clock in the morning. 31st December. We got up:D. We eat, took a shower, walked the dog – and left home (we left Maxie, the dog, at home this time).

The first thing we noticed on the road?
The fog. And I really mean fog! Look:

The car’s mirrors had some frost on them.

But we kept going 😉 and had some amazing views:

The first objective for the day: The Church Made Of One Tree. I was happy. Giving the fact that this church has a special story – and some very interesting curiosities 😉 – I choose to dedicate it a special article here on the blog. So for now I’ll only show you the entrance – but soon the whole story!

After visiting the monastery, we were back on the road. The first thing we saw was a small railroad – for small trains

And we’ve arrived at the second touristic objective of the day. Peştera Muierii – Womans’s Cave. We knew that the final entry was at 4 P.M. And we arrived there at 2.30 P.M. But guess what: it was the last day of the year, so the cave was closed at 2 P.M. It will be open on January 1st – but we won’t get back. We’ll definitely see it however on another occasion.

We took a photo of the mountain where the cave is:

and then we got on the road again.

We reached Hurezi Monastery – there were nuns there, and a priest, but the actually monastery was closed 😀 But we discovered also an interesting thing – I’ll also present it in a special post dedicated to the monastery. For now here’s a photo with a general view of this monastery:

After this we got back home – reached Bucharest in the evening:

picked up Eric and then enjoyed the New Year’s together. You can see here some photos with Eric and his first fireworks 😉

I wanted a day to remember – and I definitely got one 😉 What did you do on December 31st?

    The price is much lower than whatever they were a year ago, especially on famous Japanese models justin timberlake ticket price for this new bond
    buying program, the ebc has to submit a monthly report
    of bond purchases and from which country they
    originated from as a protection from negative scrutiny.
