Today was smashing, wonderful and rejuvenating. Yours truly is LOVING Romania and I reckon you’d love it too, what is not to like? The place has a bad rep and I’m not sure why. I was apprehensive to come here and now that I’m here, I ask myself “Why didn’t I come here earlier?”. If you’ve read the last update, you’ll know I’m recharging my batteries in Romania aka resting up.
Constanta, Romania is an interesting place, it has everything AND MORE any digital nomad would wish for. Cheap accommodations, lovely locals, a beach on the black sea, great dinning options, wonderful places to grab a beverage and a peaceful vibe. While walking the streets, I felt as though I was in Canada for a while, check the picture at the top, that could have been taken in my neighborhood back home.
Spent the day roasting in the sun, ok, just spent about 2 hours before I felt, was ready to be served then retired for a nap. Afterwards while looking for some soup ended up going on a 2 hour walk through random places and back onto the beach. It’s a weekday and there were plenty of VERY interesting people on the beach.
Tomorrow is my 21 month anniversary, if I said I had something planned, I’d be lying aka I have done nothing but have a grandiose idea. It will incorporate a photo from each month of where I’ve been and why you should go there at some point in your life.
I cannot stress enough that getting an online income started before you leave is paramount. There are those that make it, however 80%+ fail if they leave first. They rip through their savings and are back at square one with not much left to do but sell links on their personal blog, sigh. It’s not a long term strategy my friends, don’t do it!
Was going to retire early before a gent from the Netherlands appeared at the place I’m staying, ever meet someone and instantly know they were cut from the same cloth? We ventured around town, made merry with whoever we met and had a grand time.
He lives in Bucharest, when I go there I will stay with him and will explore the city through the eyes of a local from a foreign country, if that makes sense. The beach was banging today, saw many great sights and met interesting people you’d have to meet in person to appreciate, so to speak. Took some photos but from a far, not sure how things work here.
This place has EVERYTHING I need and MORE… Quality accommodations for a reasonable price, amazing food options that are so cheap it makes me smile whenever I order and drinks even cheaper. It’s truly a land of the lost where few foreigners venture and those that do come home with stories of greener pastures, so to speak.
It’s late, I have things to do and as a result will wrap this post up. For my stock trading readers, I hope you are not a trapped bull like me, so pent up and full of aggression, waiting for the gate to open to throw such said bears off our backs.
Hope the world is treating you well.
P.S: Have done some branding and networking. A friend asked me why I have no blogroll and I had no answer, as a result have started a blogroll up top, wish to be considered for inclusion? Email me.
