We All Need a Getaway
– What are we going to do tomorrow?
– Well, what should we do? Coffee, movie, pool, I said.
– C’mon! Let’s do something. You know? Let’s actually DO something.
And that’s how we started searching something “to do”. I usually take my friends in my favorite places (cafes, parks etc.) but this time we wanted to get away somewhere cool and do stuff.
That’s how we found Edenland, at 20 km from Bucharest, in Baloteşti. It is a very good idea, when you’re visiting Bucharest, to discover something around. You can take a refuge here, on these hot summer days.
We set the GPS and we got into a very cool forest, far away from the city. At the beginning we took a tour and then we agreed over some activities.
First time we tried archery. I have to admit, it was more difficult than I expected. The first five arrows were compromised but I had a little more luck with the next five.
Next target was the pistol. Maybe it seems that I don’t know what I’m doing but, believe me, the shots brought be pretty good score.
The automatic rifle was not my thing, though. I missed the targets almost every time (if 2 from… 30 counts). My friends were way much better. But it is fun and I will return to practice some other time too.
We ended our getaway with a bike ride and I promised myself to return here for the tree tracks (most people chose this activity). I’m terrified of heights and I think this is a good way to fight with it (I did also parasailing in Antalya a while ago).
