As if waking up with my beloved on our 20th Wedding Anniversary were not enough, I opened my inbox to find an invite to Bucharest for a gala dinner.
The reason; my latest book, Dogs ‘n’ Dracula – A Road Trip Through Romania has been selected as a finalist in the Romania Insider Awards for The Most Effective Promotion of Romania Abroad!
There is no doubt that we fell deeply in love with Romania. In the light of the fact that everyone to whom we spoke ahead of our visit told us that we would be robbed, scammed, kidnapped by gypsies, eaten by bears or mauled by wolves or marauding packs of wild dogs, I have embarked on a one-woman mission to try to change misguided perceptions about this wonderful country.
I was pleased to have even been shortlisted as an entry, but am absolutely thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in these prestigious awards.
Unfortunately, thrilled as I am at the invitation and beguiled by an unplanned opportunity to return to Romania, I had to decline, since I shall be somewhere in the middle of the English Channel en route to our next adventure.
Stay tuned in to see where we get to next!
