Travel Journal - Dragos Voda, Natural Reservation

Travel journal - summer of 2011 - part 3

Frightened deers and does come closer to eat sunflower seeds which visitors give them. My ma claps her hands in amusement and all the animals run scared. "Stop it", I say while I put myself in the lovely animals place. A lovely deer aproaches us although it is a sunny hot day and he is tired and lazy.

Isn't this deer sleeping so peacefully? ♥♥♥

At the entrance, some aurochs can be seen in the distance. They are an extinct species so they are given as much space as they could have. But I am sure that it is not enough since they are masive animals.

After them, on the right, a few cages filled with all kinds of birds come in our sight. Beautiful peacocks start making strange sounds while funny tufted hens run around.

Next to them a bear is sitting lazily and does not even bother to look at us until we give him some sunflower seeds (and he actually eats them!).

We see the cage of a wolf.. I start to get some goose bumps since I have never seen a real one in my whole life. We search for him and finally spot him sleeping in the sun like a stray dog. We start making noises but he does not bother that much. He lifts his head and then closes his eyes and goes back to sleep. What a wolf! He looks like a dog! But I would be as bored as him if I had to stay closed in a cage.
A boar is running in circles while waiting for some attention. It is like people are avoiding him since he is not the prettiest creature on Earth. But I find him funny and nice in his own way. Reminds me of Pumba from Lion King C:, whom I really adore!

Many things to say but not so many words are available to describe some simple things that happen in nature. Beautiful animals that surround us should not become extinct by human fault and should be helped to survive. It is really good that people made reservations and other simillar things to protect them but I wonder how much this will help in the near future.

At the end of our Dragoş Vodă, Natural Reservation (from Tîrgul Neamţ) tour, my parents stopped to buy some natural honey that was being sold at the entrance and I saw some beautiful butterflies flying around. As I aproached one of them, I realised that it was hurt. Hope he wasn't bittend by a bear or god knows what!

Hope that you enjoyed the pictures! Tried to upload as many as i could ~~

Barajul Izvorul Muntelui - The Brook of the Mountain Dam

Travel journal - summer 2011 - part 2 

Summer trip adventure continues ... me & my folks ended up at the Mountain Spring Dam/Barajul Izvorul Muntelui from Bicaz. It was reaaaaally beautiful and tall (as a dam should be lol) and for our surpise it was a sunny, hot day.

Going to the mountains made us think that we could get some fresh Cold air but it was not so cold in the daytime, only at night. But it was really amazing to see so many beautiful places and so many trees. Green everywhere <3.

It was the 15th of August when we arrived at the dam. And that is the day of a big feast day in Romania which is celebrated at this dam and at the Black Sea back in Constanta(left from Constanta and got was like the celebrating part followed us!!). And that is why the dam was crowded with people and there was music everywhere <3(*`ヮ´*)ノ . Just our luck. In any other day it would have been a really silent place.

At the bottom of the dam, people were sunbathing and enjoying themselves.

Beautiful grass lands were surrounding us at times.

We stopped the car to get some fresh apples from the trees on the side of the road.

Beginning of a journey

Travel journal - summer 2011 - part 1

We started our little journey from Constanţa and went to Târgu Neamţ the farthest. It took us about 6 hours to get to Piatra Neamţ, which was the first city where we had planned to go.

We left home at about 6 am and arrived in Piatra Neamţ at 2 o'clock. We had to lay over a few times to eat and things like that but it did not waste much of our time...anyway, in the first part of the road trip we were kind of sleepy and bored but it started to get quite interesting when mountains showed themselves out of nowhere.

In the following pictures you can see the Bistriţa river (if I remember the name well) ~~ on the other border there were many many swans <3 (too bad they were so far and I could not get better shots) ~~ we also found a pension which had some kind of pool where these swans came by .
