We just came back from our mini excursion to Targoviste.
Everyone said that we were crazy to go there since there aren’t many things to see. Well, it was really nice, clean, relaxing and the food was awesome.
It took us 40 minutes to get out of Bucharest (it wasn’t even the rush hour!) and one hour to get to Targoviste. The road was nice and we had no dramas. Well I had a mini drama at a gas station where I got stuck in the bathroom. But after a few minutes pushing and pulling I managed to free myself.
We went to the old ruins and Chindiei Watchtower and we were the only ones there. After months on interacting with so many people, over crowding and traffic in Bucharest, Targoviste was a breath of fresh air. My only complaint is that it started sunny then when we got up on the Chindiei Watchtower it got foggy and we could barely see the view.
I really like mini excursions like this one. But there one downside: the coming back home! It took us 3 hours from Targoviste to Bucharest, one hour on the highway (where we saw an accident), and two hours to enter in Bucharest and get home. It was chaos!
At least we got home safe, that’s what matters. Hopefully I will get my drivers license and this year I will be able to have more trips.
