I am considering working in Romania coming from the UK, and I am wondering if it is best to contract or get a local employment contract. My main home will still be in the UK. Does anyone have experience or guidance on the best approach for this ?

WeddingHorses replied to the thread Do any jobs exist for only English speakers in Romania? on the Romania forum:
hellraiser66 initially posted:
I probably can answer this question myself but I just thought it would be worth just asking on this forum. My situation is that my partner is Romanian and although she wishes to come to the UK we are faced with issues of her young child not being allowed by ex to leave Romania at this time. So to explore all avenues I just wondered if there is any jobs that only require English language, although I have been to Romania many times I have not learnt the language, as there was never the intention to move there but.....I am a young 60 year old (age does not help either) who is a peoples person, working face to face situations all my life with people from all walks of life, I am willing to consider any opportunities that may exist as a possible solution to my situation, confident by nature, a hard and keen worker willing to try anything, anywhere in Romania but ideally in Arges if possible for that is where my partner lives. Even working as a couple would be something considered!. I know this is definitely a long shot, a very long short but if you don't ask you will never know is what I believe in. If anyone has any opportunities or advice I would appreciate it, as I said this is just another option I need to look at which may lead to an open door or close one completely. Thanks in anticipation Ian PS Yes I know that some people

christinekent initially posted:
Does anyone know of a cheap way of transporting a car from the UK to Romania. So far the best quote I have is GBP4500 which is far too much. I need to find something much cheaper or I will have to drive all the way myself on the wrong side of the car on the wrong side of the road.
WeddingHorses replied most recently with:
I drove mine here myself. Cost about £700 including Tunnel, Petrol, Road tolls and Hotels.

Hi there. i will be moving Ploiesti in December and it will be my first time in Romania. i can see some highlights and tips about Romania in general (mostly Bucharest) in webpages but how about Ploiesti? i really wonder how it is like living in this city. Thanks in advance
WeddingHorses replied most recently with:
Hi mate. Welcome to Ploiesti. I have lived here since June 2012 and am totally at home here. I am lucky that like my Brit expat friends I can run my business in the UK from home here with Phone and PC. Give me a shout on 0724633303 and we can go out for a Beer or ? sometime. Steve.

Tommy, Ploiesti is considered much like a suburb to Bucharest. I know people who commute to/from Ploiesti and Bucharest daily. For someone living in Baneasa (North of Bucharest) is more convenient and less time consuming to go to Ploiesti than Berceni (South of Bucharest). You have a 130 kmph speed limit highway to Bucharest, a straight line between Ploiesti and the core of Bucharest on DN1 (both can get you to Bucharest in less than 45 minutes). Also, if you don't drive there are at least 10 trains/day that can get you to/from Bucharest in Ploiesti in under 60 minutes for less than 50 lei. (~ 15 $). Both trains/busses are clean and efficient. If you are adventurous enough you can hithchike near the south train station. You would see a lot of people doing it as is faster and cheaper (people pay the man that picks them up) to get into suburbs of Ploiesti. A trip to Bucharest done like this, would be about 10-15 lei. This being said, go and meet people from your country in Bucharest! :) Have a nice stay. Ploiesti is nice, even tho the air is sometimes...well..errr...bad. PS: try the "delice" confectionery store. You will be amazed, and preety soon obese :)
