As I really travel a whole lot in all those funny countries, it happened sometime ago to land in Romania, Bucharest, the eastern land of opportunities, of beautiful women, and of extremely cheap cabs.
And the funny thing about Bucharest is that the cabs are so dirt cheap, as I did not even understand how can those guys pay for the gas, how can then repair the car when it gets broken and how they can earn a living from driving people around – as it seams that those services were so cheap, than the guys that are providing them are basically living with water and bread.
So…. I really felt pity for those drivers, but to be honest, the quality of those services was also dreadfull, they were the worst cabs that I have ever been in, they were dirty, they were quite old (in fact more…. Not fit than old) so I have to be onest and to say that I did not like this experience.
So… I decided to call Bucharest rent a car services – that I did and it happened to find some very neat Mercedes cars that were driving themselves - joking here ;) – the cars came with a driver, a very nice guy that was dressed accordingly and to be honest I have enjoyed all the trips with that car (for the value of the services, for the car and everything the price was really a steel) and I felt great, so great that I also wanted to repeat this thing in London, and then in Rome, but I have reached to the conclusion that those 2 cities are to expensive for me, or I don’t really find any value in paying 5 times more than in Bucharest for the same kind of services and maybe with a smaller and non impressive car.
