Top curiosities and affinities between Romania and other states - part I
The center of the capital is full of tourists. More foreigners than Romanians. There's nothing wrong with that, it's really good news. It is said that tourism is the visiting card of a country. This business card must be an impact, and then the visitor is convinced to tell the story of that country.
You do not have to be a guide to give a business card, but any one of us can learn to respect his own country, with good and bad.
We live in a world connected to everyone and everything. It is a shame not to make the most of this period of maximum development. Although it tends to live a life without taking into account the beautiful moments of the history of a nation, the values left by the great people of humanity, visitors appreciate when you speak worthy, good and less good, but worthy, about the history / geography of the country.
For example, in the chapter on "the kidnapping of Bessarabia", it is clear that for us it is a sad memory. But to better understand the drama of the situation, we can resemble the Habsburgs abduction of the Trentino Alto Edige province in Italy in the 14th century.
Since I practice travel guide business, I try to get into the skin (not under the skin) of the tourist to figure out how I could make it easy for him to listen carefully to what I have to say, not to be a "haunted mill" that scratches the eardrum all the way. Because not every tourist is interested in all our verbal flow. This is why I think emotional intelligence is very important in the guide job. Especially since the man pays for it, and his stay must be a pleasant one, just like ours when we go on vacation and we want to have a good local guide.
Thus, an ingenious way to talk about your country is comparison. The man next to you will feel flattered to hear that you know about the values of his country, taking as personalities (writers, statesmen) who have made a significant contribution to the building of his country's culture and which resembles a personality of at U.S.
I give an example of Eminescu, which we can associate with Giaccomo Leopardi or Pascoli (when I face Italians) or W. Shakespeare (English), with the following remark: Eminescu is the last romantic of Europe. I talk about Eminescu when they are in front of the Central Library (his name is written on the facade) or in the Romanian Athenaeum (his name is written on the dome). Of course, when you read them again and again two or three verses from both authors, the moment is all the more beautiful.
George Enescu resembles Puccini of Italy.
