Who are we and why are we the right people for this tour?
I’m Louisa (22) from Germany and I am studying Eastern European politics in Chemnitz. Over one year I have been living in Romania as an exchange student and since the very first day I am in love with the country and the people.
I’m Tica (20) from Romania and studying Multimedia Design in Copenhagen. Last summer I already made this tour alone. Now I am going to do it again, but this time bigger. I’m very happy that I met Louisa. The reason why I make this trip again, is that I believe in the salvation of Rosia Montana and in the following african proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.“
We have a lot of motivation and endless energy. Both – sport and travelling – has always been an important part of our lives.
Tandem means teamwork. And we are just a perfect team!
Our skills complement brilliant. Louisa is responsible for the theoretical part of the project. For months, she studied the protest against the gold-mining project in Rosia Montana as a case of civil society movements. Tica, however, has plenty of experience in the documentation of adventure travelling.
