The sunny afternoons in November, surprised me in a fairytale place, just 15 kilometers away from the center of Bucharest. Here, history stops time, beauty has another meaning, and autumn colours slowly roll into the multicolored carpet made by the leaves, that contrasts with the walls of the buildings.

If you didn’t believe in stories so far and everyone tried to convince you that dreams do not exist, if you had a dream since you were a kid and you hoped someday it will come true, then I recommend you to still have the power to believe in your dreams. They are possible. People who believed in their dream proved it. They proved it so much, that they did not give up to their dream until they saw it accomplished.
The most important thing when you leave in a holiday together with your family is to find the perfect moments to capture the best landscapes and to enjoy the trip.
It is said that “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”
From all the stories received on Fairytale Traveller I want to share with you guys, a place full of quiet and peace of mind. Many thanks for the pictures sent by Mifsud family: Janet and David. They told us also, a few things about this wonderful place.
I do not know how you are when you go on a holiday, but even if it’s long or short, I like to eat healthy, to feel at home, and not to have unpleasant experiences with the food I am serving, whether it is Romanian or international cuisine .
If you spend your holidays on the Prahova Valley, Romania and you want to dine in a quiet, friendly, welcoming location and enjoy healthy and tasty dishes, I would love to recommend you ” La Fontanella Restaurant” located in Predeal, on Mihai Săulescu Boulevard no. 111, specially arranged in a rustic setting where you can spend unforgettable moments with your loved ones.
Their very own name tells a story that you need to know, find it from the locals, or simply discover it yourself on the way, climbing the mountains or discovering their beauty.
I did not plan a trip to Bucegi Mountains, although I wanted to see them for some time. Because such a hike is not planned, it is done.
„You can’t ever be a whole person unless you have gone outside yourself. Traveling makes us complete.” (Shawn)
When I first read Shawn’s website I thought he definitely has more than a simple story to tell. I discovered in him more than a simple traveller and also I discovered that miles away or near you, the people behind these stories create the magic called LIFE.
Every time you discover and visit new places I am sure you experience new feelings. I believe travelling is about feelings, right? What makes you go on or what makes you come back to that place? The people? The climate? The surroundings? The attractions of the area? Every place has something unique to discover.
I wrote some time ago about the fairytale cuisine that follows us in our travels, but I didn’t try to give a definition of this section, mostly because what makes a journey richer, every time you discover culture, traditions or habits of the place you visit is the taste. If anything made you come back to a place that you have visited and that one specific thing stayed in your heart, then that „something” is definitely related to the particular traditions of the place that will always accompany you.
What makes Romania beautiful in all my travels are not only the places, the attractions or the beautiful landscapes. What makes all the time Romania beautiful when you travel are the people you meet travelling, the wonderful cultural experiences you get when you know foreign people in your country and of course, the bound that makes you to share stories when you know someone is reading you at thousands and thousands of miles away, wanting someday to be there, in your country, part of your story.
