Hello ROMANIA! A Strange and Mysterious Place


  1. You absolutely have the clearest videos of anyone I watch on youtube. With your videos, I always make sure I'm watching on my 27" monitor and I put it on full screen mode to watch. Great stuff. Living vicariously through you! When I retire, I can travel like you do…maybe!

  2. Where's everybody at, where's all the people?? 🎃🎃 and it be nice to show see more of the people and food eating. 💜

  3. Awesome video!!! I’m from Romania 🇷🇴!!! I remember going to the Black Sea has a kid with my family in the summer time

  4. Привет мир! Gabriel Traveler, Спасибо!
    Hello World! Gabriel Traveler, Thank you!
    Hola Mundo! Gabriel Traveler, Gracias!

  5. it's like somebody threw a chemical bomb that killed all the people and left the buildings in place. Very strange.

  6. Pretty depressing in winter, that's how Constanta is. If you're going to the Republic of Moldova, I recommend you first to visit Iasi, the second largest city of Romania, then you can go to Chisinau. You can reach Chisinau directly by train from Fri to Sun. There's a special train to Chisinau that departs from Gara Socola Iasi in the afternoon.

  7. Living in England for a couple years I become good mates with a lot of Romanians. So glad I got to visit my mates country with him 🙂 awesome video man

  8. Damn, we have post-apocalyptic scenery in Bulgaria too, but this is something else. There is more life in Pripyat ! Really give you suicidal feelings…
    PS: I know it's because of winter.

  9. Buildings looking like a warzone WW2. Ravens floating around and screaming loud as if someones about to die. No people on the street as if they know a monster is on it's way…

    Yea. It just misses Dracula greeting you on the station.
