I first planned to visit Romania because of Voronet Monastery, also known as the “Sistine Chappel of the East” - a painted medieval monastery, built in 1488 to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Vaslui. I even attended Romanian classes to learn the basics and be able to communicate should I have any problem (I'm a solo traveller on a motorbike...)!
Meantime I was dreaming about staying a few nights in a Monastery. I fulfilled this dream in Romania!
I park the motorbike and decide to visit a small fair before entering the Monastery. The most beautiful siblings, aged between 5 and 8, are selling berries in plastic cups. They’re sitting behind a small improvised stall, wearing the tradicional clothes. To help them raise money I buy some berries from them.
