Meeting people is what distinguishes a good travel experience. Whether I’m leading a tour, writing a guidebook, or making a TV show, if I’m not connecting people to people…I’m not feeling good about my work. In lands with the most interesting demographic weave, I love to produce a montage of face shots. When I request this, Simon, my producer, always says, “Okay, but you need to give us some time to do it well.” We make the time in our busy schedule, and my crew always comes up with a segment that just sparkles with humanity. We enjoyed our time filming in Romania last summer and, to a great extent, it was because of the Romanian people. Enjoy this short visit to Romania — via the faces of that fascinating land.
