Initial experiences in Oradea, Romania
Some pictures about me made by Zoli, just for fun. :) We are waiting to start our journey... We are really excited, this is a very big thing for us. I can't wait to see all those wonderful things I just read about before.
We also decided to document each move of ours with photos and write down every important detail, so when we get home, we can share everything with you here on the community. I'm looking forward to get there!!
