Dear friends and motorcycle enthusiasts,
You may wonder how was the pandemic year 2021 in Romania.
First of all, we became the Touratech Official Distributor in Romania in March 2020. We had no idea that our beginning with Touratech will match the exact month and year with the beginning of a global pandemic situation. They also say that nothing happens without a reason, so this was for us an excellent opportunity to extend ourselves locally.
We started the year with a few guided tours with different groups and nationalities, and I would like to mention here a private guided tour with Tom, a 68 years old motorcycle rider. Why would I mention his story? Because he took his motorcycle driving license when he was 60 years old. This was the start for him to explore the entire world. He travelled extensively to several countries including Colombia, New Zealand and he has already seen a big part of Europe as well. Riding with him was a very beautiful surprise. He is the type of person that would make you smile every day and his belief was that life should be lived and enjoyed fully. He did not stop riding because of Covid and coming to Romania in a pandemic year was an opportunity for him to experience a new country, to meet the locals and taste the traditional delicious food, to ride on the famous Transfagarasan and Transalpina and to strengthen the fact that happiness is something we choose. Imagine sitting in his house or working in the office instead of riding in Romania with us, what do you think? Which of these situations would make him happier?
Why did I want to mention Tom? Because Tom is the best example of how we can live our lives. Sometimes we forget about ourselves, about our plans and hobbies. We tend to be influenced by commodity, television, and other factors. But we cannot let television decide what we can do. We can learn from Tom how to take freedoms.
I would also like to mention the Touratech Rally event in June. It was a blast. We had riders coming from New Zealand, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Finland, Portugal and of course Romania. It was a scenic off-road tour, and all the participants enjoyed the curvy roads and the fascinating landscape. I look forward to organising the same event in 2022 so if you would like to join, send us an email at email@example.com and we would be happy to have you with us.
