Travelling with Avalon Waterways was a wonderful experience. We travelled along the Black Sea and admired it’s incredible properties, additionally we also toured Romania and saw the spectacular Parliament building, we also saw Dracula’s Legendary Castle.

Our cruise with Avalon Waterways started on August 4, 2010 and ended on August 14, 2010. The experience was very comfortable, relaxing, and overwhelmingly enjoyable. It is a experience I will never forget, along with my tour in Romania.Feel free to view my photo gallery!

Rick Mereki Encourages Us To Move, Learn and Eat.

In 2008, “Dacing Matt” Harding became a YouTube sensation with his videos showcasing both his arguable dancing abilities and his amazing travels. His first video was posted in 2005 as a result from his 6 month, 17 country backpacking trip as a departure from his game developer desk job. Currently his video has 39 million views and has sparked plenty of copycats.
