Sharad Malhotra’s Exciting Romanian Holiday: See Pics
Sharad Malhotra shares his adventures from his recent solo holiday to the beautiful European country of Romania
Television actor Sharad Malhotra is back from a relaxing solo trip. Sharad visited a rather unusual destination - Romania and had an amazing time there. “I was contemplating between Europe and south-east Asia but then after the coronavirus epidemic broke out, I decided that Romania would be ideal for some me time and a solo trip that was long due,” he says. Talking about the trip, he adds, “I visited the capital Bucharest and then this very picturesque and beautiful town called Brasov. Walking on the streets and clicking pictures of some historical monuments and trying out some local cuisine were my favourite things to do on my trip. I loved the museums, art galleries, street-side cafes, pubs…there was so much to do at Bucharest.”
Being on a solo holiday (rather rare for actors who love to move around with their entourage) gave him an opportunity to spend time with himself and do things that he wouldn’t otherwise have done as well. Sharad says he loved interacting with the locals. “Considering the temperature had dipped to -5°c, the Romanians were still very hospitable and warm people. I made some local friends too and it was such an enriching and endearing experience to understand and see local Romanian culture,” he says.
In fact, the actor got a special photoshoot done during his trip. “Fortunately, I also connected with one of their amazingly talented photographers and we spontaneously managed to get a photoshoot in no time. It was super fun shooting in freezing temperatures, something I hadn't experienced earlier and it was an adrenaline rush all the way through. The pics look great and they'll be out soon,” he says. We can’t wait too!
Ask him what the top five things do in Romania are, and he says, “Visit the old town in Bucharest. Make sure to see the museum and art galleries that say volumes about the history and culture. Visit Brasov. Visit Bran (The famous Bram stoker's Dracula's castle) and Visit Poiana for skiing.”
