Travel: From Fairplay to far Romania

Work has taken the Arnolds far afield from Fairplay, KY, in May of 2024, and Veronica has been taking pictures of their travels through Romania to share with Columbia Magazine readers.

They've visited Bucharest, Constanta, and Navodari, seen the Carpathian Mountains, beautiful farming country, climbed trees and picked poppies on the shores of the Black Sea, and visited castles, monasteries, and other culturally important sites.

Veronica writes, "as soon as you hit the countryside.... huge vast fields. So, so green and beautiful. In fact I remarked that the fields and hills I saw made me think of south central Kentucky."

We'll be posting photos from her travels over the next week, so bookmark this article to see them all in one place.

Travel: Scenes from the beach



2024-05-22 - Romania, on the shores of the Black Sea - Photo by Veronica Arnold.
Veronica writes of this visit to the shores of the Black Sea in Romania, "Besides freezing cold water, there are red flags, so I can only dip my toes in. But the large presence of beach clubs tells me that this place is a seriously fun boardwalk in the hot summer months. Pizza and Ice stands every few meters!

I haven't 100% identified the species of trees growing but they are neat. perfect for kids climbing all over--which mine did!

You also see large cargo ships all day long traverse the seas. Wind turbines, and latge processing plants are to the north on the coast. A reminder of all the natural resources around this area."
