Si acum, la cateva zile de la venire, ma umplu de bucurie amintirile din experienta avuta in Transilvania Train. Un efort extraordinar din partea unei echipe entuziaste, mereu binevoitoare si cu zambetul la purtator, desi oboseala si-a spus cuvantul, un proiect pe care il doresc de lunga durata pt. ca e nevoie de inedit, de autentic, de pastrarea legaturii cu traditiile, cu satul romanesc, cu modul de viata al minoritatilor, cu tot ce inseamna cultura si istoria noastra. Pot evalua foarte bine desfasurarea de forte pentru un astfel de proiect si faptul ca el s-a intamplat se datoreaza exclusiv unor oameni ambitiosi, idealisti, care nu stiu ce inseamna “nu se poate”, care isi depasesc limitele si se lupta uneori cu sistemul si, in rest, cu provocarile si situatiile neprevazute care intervin intr-un astfel de eveniment. Ma bucur ca am aflat de voi si ca v-am cunoscut, ca mi-ati oferit momente minunate si amintiri bune de povestit mult timp de acum incolo. Multumesc pentru o experienta in care aproape la fiecare pas am fost surprinsi placut si nu am simtit niciodata greul, situatia “de criza” sau efortul vostru. Sunteti minunati Free Spirit Travel si GLOBE 360 – Travel Boutique. Sunteti genul acela de oameni care sfintesc locul, misca lucrurile si isi lasa amprenta pe unde merg. Sarbatorim impreuna cel putin 100 de editii de Transilvania Train, deal?

The program was very well structured, organized, gave us the freedom of everyone to choose what we want, and we also visited the most important places in the areas we went. I liked that there was no moment of monotony, and the team was always well-prepared, ready to help and give us any details we needed.
