Culture Clash: Poland - Romania

Dear friends,

It is weird and fun at the same time to find things from your own country in the country that adopted you :) When you are trying to find something Polish in Romania or something Romanian in Poland you will not be able to find it. But! If you casually enter a store you will be more likely to find something :)

In Romania it is a bit easier to find something Polish, there is awesome Tymbark juices (of course, they do not have the same taste as they do in Poland, but they do come close!) and Volbro Chocolates (that are ALWAYS! very very very good and usually they have sour cherries inside ;) and they are a treat!)

But when it comes to Romanian things in Poland it is as easy as finding a needle in a haystack! In the big supermarkets you can find Moldavian wine but never Romanian ones... And I am quite a huge fan of the Cotnari Wine as it comes from the region I grew up. But! Fortunately enough, one of my friends - who likes wine, and appreciates good things - found out a chain of Wine Shops (there are around 4 or 5 shops of this kind in Krakow) that sells some Romanian wine (as in the picture below, made by my friend, so I could confirm if it is a Romanian wine or not ;)...)

Well... it is a Romanian wine. Not Cotnari but still good ;)

**I didn't receive anything for this review, just wanted to share the love!**

Your beloved friend,
