Romania

Romania is gorgeous. It's very colorful. The people are very warm and inviting. The people work hard at bringing positive momentum to their country. The capitol city is Bucharest. The main religion is Christan.

I just had to visit Transylvania. Known as Dracula's birth place, this city is actually just the majority of northern and central Romania. It has many castles and towns, as well as the Transylvania Alps.

On of the most beautiful cities in Romania is Sighisoara. It was founded by German Merchants and craftsmen. It's a perfect example of a medieval town. However, it's very small.

Switzerland

Switzerland is a beautiful place. As you probably know, the Swiss are famous for their pocket knives, as well as their chocolate. However, the biggest attraction is the landscape. There is a lot to do from skiing, to hang-gliding.

Glacier Express should at least be looking into. Its one of the best train rides in the entire world! It goes from St. Moritz to Zermatt. There are stops at Davos, Chur, Brig, and Visp. It's a 7.5 hour ride. This is best done during the winter.

Netherlands

The capitol of the Netherlands is Amsterdam. Amsterdam is pretty notorious for its liberal approach on drugs and prostitution. It also holds famous museums and historic architecture.The language they speak is mostly dutch. It was odd to find that the majority of the population was not religious. The entire country is pretty flat.

If you're deciding to stop in Friesland or Groningen then you better go waddling. Waddling is where you walk on the bottom of the sea!! At low tide of course. It's mostly done north of the Holland. This can also be done in Germany or Denmark.
