Good thing I’m a Millennial Countess and I’m more fun, huh?
You’d be surprised, but I actually enjoy festivals. Not necessarily because of the music, I still haven’t discovered one that has my kind, but because of the people. My team always jokes around, saying that I am an old hag – but it’s not really a joke, I really am, sometimes. Festivals are full of young people and their energy rejuvenates me more than any kind of cream ever could. Now, don’t jump to conclusions, I am no vampire nor soul sucking freak, it’s just that the way the youngsters talk, the subjects they choose, the way they see things – all these makes interacting with them incredibly interesting and I swear it keeps me young.
Instead of Art Nouveau buildings, we’ve had several entertainment corners that definitely made the visit worth it. The Untold guys really knew how to create that story vibe they pride themselves with. I was mostly hiding from the strong sun at the H&M corner, where besides a lot of lounging places, they also had cotton candy, a booth where you could create gifs that looked as if they were made in the sky, huge soap balloons aaaaaaaaand a jumping pool filled with sponges. Yes. I jumped in. You don’t believe me? That’s fine, I’ve got proof.
I don’t know much about trimmed bushes and nature that’s arranged to perfection, however Cluj’s Central Park was quite pretty & manicured as it is. I respect nature, to begin with, so I think it’s a lot more beautiful au naturelle than how a human could ever arrange it anyway. Similarly fancy people I met. Lots of them, might I add. From my team, to the H&M team (Addams, Sanzetta, Adriana & Alina) to Romania’s only Drag Queen, Alexander, these 4 days were filled with noteworthy encounters.
As for the gin… we might not be living in the Belle Epoque anymore, but honey, we’ve had lots, lots, lots (…) and lots of gin at Untold.
