Bye bye Moldova

Welcome in Soroca (Moldova); Photo: THomas Alboth

At the beginning I couldn’t get used to funny Moldovan bank-notes which looks for me like Monopoly money. Now after almost a month, when I know them very well, we are leaving.

I also have a feeling that I know Chisinau very well. Annoying one-way roads are not so annoying anymore (because we know which one goes where) and not-smiling people on the streets are not surprising so much (but I still would like to tickle them and tickle!).

But I must admit that we felt better outside of the capital: in both autonomy states: Transnistria and Gagauzia, between Roma people in Sorocca or simply at Dniester river: at its beginning on the north to end at the south.

From shopping mall DOVA in Chisinau we prefer small music school in Soroca, from popular summer destination Vadu lui Voda – Ghidighici lake at the other side of the city.

And we are so happy to have friends here! Without them meeting with police, visit in hospital or getting visa to Azerbaijan would be really difficult. Just a bit sad that you need those contacts to live ok life here. But maybe not only here..?

Our first book is out!

We have published our first book (for now just in Polish:) about our Central America Trip.
See, read and order here »

    Congratulations, very interesting blog, I am from Moldova and I read the posts on my country in a beat of a second :) Too bad I did not meet you in Moldova last June, I was showing my country to a friend of mine from Norway and visited almost all the places you had visited in the same period :) Your family is amazing and I would like to meet you once. Let me know, when you visit Moldova next time, I would like to invite you at my parent’s house :) Could you please send me an email, I would like to keep in touch with you. I can’t find you on facebook :)
