He came back to the old family property to reopen doors. Back in the day there was a “natural spa” and a countryside hotel. We were their first helpers, and they treated us like good old friends. Sunny days full of local stories, tradition and uses, curious things and mysteries. We learnt how a hostel and countryside holiday home works, how to mow the grass traditionally with a scythe and about composting leaves, we learnt about local cooking, we visited interesting places and recovered antique objects. We enjoyed the sun by the swimming pool and long talks after family meals. We met wonderful people, the warmth of the northerns romanians is quite unique, and we received traditional gifts during farewell!
