Funny phone call

More anecdotal evidence that Romania is being 'discovered' this year.... though it came accidently in a wrong number phone call a few moments ago.

The caller wanted me to sort out some travel arrangements to Romania, involving a visa.

I explained we were not a travel agency.

"But you did it for us last year when we went to Canada"

"Um, no I don't think so"

"Yes, you did"

"No we don't do that sort of thing"

"Yes you absolutely did!"

Then the penny dropped and I heard myself say "Who do you think you are talking to?"

(hehe!)

"Travcour"

Aha! I know Travcour. One of the visa specialists. In a flash I was able to look it up on the site, give him the phone number and send him on his happy way.

Now, for interest's sake, I wish I'd asked him what he & his wife were going for - Sibiu (Euro culture city this year)? Dracula? Wildlife watching on the Danube Delta? or in the Carpathians?

Still.... "who do you think you are talking to?" - not often you get to say that, and come away unscathed.
