“We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment” – Hilaire Belloc
What better way to discover yourself than by travelling and challenging yourself day by day to live unique experiences? To meet new people, learn about different cultures, traditions, to stretch the limits of your imagination and live the life that you deserve.
How else can you do all these than by engaging with locals in each and every new place you discover? We believe a musical event or festival can be a great opportunity to meet other wanderers in the search of themselves.
We are glad that you for choose Romania as your destination this month, so we have made a bit of research and here’s few future events you should take advantage of while here:
- Bukovina Rock Castle – 20th – 22nd of August – Suceava
If you are visiting Bucovina, the north-east part of the country, you should check this event. While discovering the Painted Monasteries that had made the area internationally acclaimed, you can enjoy some rock, etno-dub-rock-reggae, barbarian metal or folk metal. Interesting enough?
