Home at last!

I have finally returned from my work experience in Romania.
It was such a busy month and extremely interesting. There were six in the group to learn traditional craft skills which varied from mask making, icon painting, traditional cookery, jewelery making and a little bit of language skills.
We stayed in Sibiu for the month and it is such a stunning city, the architecture was truly amazing and it never rained once for the whole month we stayed just roasting hot heat!
However I was never so glad when the month was up, I could finally return home to see my pets and family again.
Oh and we are finally moved in to our new house with my step dad and we have a working internet connection at last yay!

Feel free to ask me any questions about my trip to Romania guys :)

I have a friend that lives in Romania, we met when she came to the states in high school in a foreign exchange program. I just found her on FB recently.

What was your favorite thing you learned about?

I think for me the best thing I learned was the traditional mask making skills as I have never worked with any kind of textiles before, was really enjoyable and all the festivals that were held in the big square was great!

Welcome back! Sounds like a successful trip.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Thank you it was a real experience that I could barely of dreamed of! I was amazed how horses are still used in a lot of work in the rural areas and there was no fences to keep the sheep or cattle in, there were shepherds to tend to them during the day and at night the sheep would be put in pens and the cows would go back to the family's they belonged too.

Also, thanks to who chanced the title! :P

Beautiful scenery! The dog & his blue eyes made me do that reflex "awww".

The muddy picture, was this just for fun or was it like a warrior dash type race? Either way looked fun!

The last photo looks like a perfect spot for a barn & pasture.

the dog was a stray and I wanted to take him home! (along with a few others!) he just walked over and lay down at our table and fell asleep.

The mud picture was when we visited a natural salt lake and there were smaller lakes that had mineral type mud that left your skin so smooth once it was washed off! I couldn't stop stroking my face it was that soft!

And the last picture is when we visited a little old lady's house in the country who had her own vineyard and was near enough completely self sufficient!
