Around 6 months ago I made a random post where I was hella excited to announce that it's time for the summer roadtrip that I'm going into, every year. We have this beautiful tradition to go for 2 weeks around Romania and discover new places and promote them further.

And a few weeks ago I started to write about them, actually I wanted to do it for a while but I kept on going to random trips and decided to post them before, as this is a whole series filled with lots of cool places and I don't want to break it for another spontaneous trip.

To make a little remember about how this See The World Series work: I make a few posts with different places that I have seen and where I had my camera with me, then collect all the videos I recorded and create a video. So after I finish writing the stories for a few locations, I dedicate one day to a video that contains all these places, presented other than just in pictures and words. In this way, you can truly see them and decide if they worth a visit or not.

As you can see, in both the title and video, it says Part 1, that is because the whole series of this past summer roadtrip will have around 6 or 7 parts, or even more than that. Because we saw a lot of places and don't really want to cut too many details at editing because I wish you will see both the good and the bad parts of them. :)

There are 2 details that are missing from the video I posted - and I'm talking about the part where is a land full with colourful roses (1:28) called Ciumbrud. I decided not to write about it because when I visited this place, most of the roses were withering so I couldn't really promote them to the fullest, but hopefully one day I will return and I will have the occasion to make a great post about it.
And the 2nd part from the video that I haven't written about, is the one at the end which is a little part of Cluj Napoca city that I will more than sure visit it this year, probably in the summer and I will make other posts about it and the touristic attractions from there.

The other places you will see in the video are: Cheile Vălișoarei (Vălișoara Gorges) & Castelul Templul Cavalerilor (The Temple of the Knights Castle) and Cheile Turzii (Turda Gorges).

As always, there are not too many things to be told as I hope the video will complete this post perfectly, and I will really suggest you to follow this summer roadtrip series because you will have the pleasure to discover Romania other than just the most popular touristic attractions from here. :)

The next post is going to be about a great lake which will be posted on Tuesday (29 Jan) and then the next video of this series will be dedicated only to this place, being posted on Monday (4 Feb).

What an amazing video Gabriela! You've been busy in the video editing suite my friend and you have some skills (I already knew that though :D )! This deserves a lot more than $2.53 in my opinion but hopefully it gets you more followers and people can appreciate your work - looks like Romania has a load of hidden beauties I didn't know about. Love the architecture on the buildings and the valley looks awesome too.

Keep them coming :)

Thank you so much! And yeah it took a while to edit the video but in the end I'm pretty satisfied with the results. Thank you so much for the resteem ❤️
Oh and yeah, tbh I expected a little vote from @dtube as they did to the other travel videos I posted but maybe next time will be better.. :)

I didn't know they upvoted posts, that's pretty cool. Will see about uploading more of music as videos too on the platform 🙂

They do, but it must be a video/tutorial/DIY/or something like that. If you just upload a song with a picture don't know if they will upvote it but you can try to make a tutorial how to create music, or record yourself creating music or just give some tips and tricks. :D

Thanks for the advice! Hmmm well, I'm not the most technical of people when it comes to things like music production. I do just go by ear/sounds and it seems to have worked so far, maybe I could do a "how it was made" series where I go through the way I made the track, why I chose certain sounds etc.... mmm thanks for the initiative... :)

Wow you do an awesome job editing and putting together your videos! I loved the intro and the music that played throughout the video was just right! I loved seeing all the greenery there. I bet it was fun hiking through all the rocks. That tree you got a closeup of was really unique! Thanks so much for allowing us to travel with you, I really enjoyed watching :D

Hey there,
Thank you so much for stopping by and spending your time to watch the video. I feel honoured to find out what you think about all the work I put in that clip. And yeah, it was the first time to get into a tree like that, as well. The next part of this roadtrip is going to come out on Monday (4 Feb) if you are willing to see more. :)
Thanks and stay safe! :D

Well done on a great video! Looking at the natural landscapes almost looks like parts of South Africa, but of course not the buildings, Romania really is lovely!
