SPECTACULAR ROMANIA

Dupa mocanita maramuresana care a fost declarata una din primele 10 cele mai spectaculoase calatorii cu trenul din lume, iata ca si Transfagarasanul intra in unul din cele mai faimoase topuri:cei de la Top Gear l-au declarat recent cea mai spectaculoasa sosea din lume.
Super tare dar, din pacate, nu destul incat sa ajunga si la urechile celor ce ar trebui sa valorifice asta...


*After Mocanita, considered one of the 10 most spectacular train journeys in the world, the Transfagarasan, a road built by Ceausescu in the Fagaras Mountains , was recently added to other famous charts:Top Gear recently declared it the most spectacular road in the world.



The Mocanita train, on Vaser Valley in Romania, was built in the '30-'35 and used to transport down the valley the logs cut down in the mountains. Partially destroyed during the war, the rail was rebuilt and now it's included in the tourism itineraries. The steam engines were built in 1919, 1921, and the '50's, in Germany and Romania. The line is 56 kilometers long, between Viseu and Izvorul Coman, and the journey up to the final destination takes about 7 - 8 hours. After accosting the wood on the scaffold, the train comes down the mountain in another six hours ,when you can admire wonderful landscapes.

HOTELURI NEOBISNUITE. WEIRD HOTELS.

Ca tot veni vorba, de curand, despre baza de cazare turistica....
Toata lumea a auzit, macar din Seinfeld, de asocierea intre sertare si chinezi. Mai putin celebra este insa cea dintre japonezi si capsule.
Binecunoscuta manie a asiaticilor pentru chestii ergonomice se reflecta inclusiv in domeniul turismului: in Osaka - Japonia, Kisho Kurokawa a venit cu ideea primului hotel-capsula, in 1979. Camerele acestuia sunt niste sertare ceva mai mari, de cca 2 x 1 x 1.5 m, dotate cu televizor, internet etc, iar numarul lor poate ajunge pana la 700. Clientii beneficiaza de bai comune, restaurant, piscina si.. scari ca sa se catzere in camera.



Tevile au fost transformate in camere, in Austria.


Celica, in Ljubljana, este o inchisoare transformata in hostel pentru tineri.

In Sao Paulo, Exploranter este hotelul special creat pentru clientii pregatiti sa incerce experiente noi: un camion Scania cu remorca, de 25 tone , in care sa afla o bucatarie, lounge si 25 de locuri de dormit. Un tur cu Exploranter iti ofera o varietate de moduri de a descoperi Brazilia: in balon, calare, cu masina, motocicleta, ATV-uri, drumetii, rute istorice, gastronomie, podgorii, situri arheologice, pescuit, rafting, bird watching, rodeo si scufundari.




Kind of English…

1. Perhaps everybody heard (at least from Seinfeld) of the association between Chinese people and drawers. Less famous is that relating Japanese people to …capsules.
The well-known Asian passion for ergonomic things is reflected even in the tourism facilities: in Osaka- Japan, Kisho Kurokawa imagined the first capsule hotel, in 1979. The rooms are up to 700 modular plastic blocks, 2 x 1 x 1.5 m, provided with television, wireless internet connectivity etc. Clients are provided with restaurants, pools and...stairs to climb to their rooms.
2.Celica, in Ljubljana, is an ex-military prison turned into a youth hostel.
3. Pieces of concrete sewage pipe in Austria have been fitted with beds. Clients pay only what they think they are worth.
4. In Sao Paulo, Exploranter is a hotel for the tourists ready to explore new things: a 25-ton Scania truck and trailer which houses a lounge, a kitchen and 28 beds. A tour with Exploranter allows you to discover Brazil through a variety of activities like hot air ballooning, horseback riding, cycles off road rally, motorbikes, quads, trekking, historical routes, gastronomy, vineyards, archeology, fishing, rafting, bird watching, rodeos and scuba diving.
