New ventures……

Home again… and busy

Oh yes, after another grueling 4000 km drive we’re safely back home. Grueling not so much because of bad roads – actually, they have greatly improved in Romania – but more because of the years creeping upon us and we simply can’t deny that things are getting harder. Where we…
