    2 or 3 times a year. My Granny is still alive. My parents live there... Yes, I do.

    You've mentioned that your tech guys are from there. What kind of tech? Programmers? PHP?

    That is awesome...

    Ed and Marcel are both CF programmers primarily, but they also handle all of our XML, HTTPOSTS, and so much more.

    I MIGHT know 1% of what they know about programming and I feel like an expert. Ed is truly a genius (taught Math at the State University). I cannot even imagine life without him working with us...and Marcel came on board about 2 months ago. They are both for us!

    Do you speak Russian and Romanian? I am learning SOME Romanian just for fun since that is their primary language. Not to mention I want to speak enough to communicate when I visit over there. Thankfully Ed speaks perfect English

    I cannot wait to visit there, but I also know they cannot wait to move to the US.

    I'm sure it's a blessing. Affordable too, huh?

    Both. However, I am ethnically Russian.

    I'm sure. Moldova is gorgeous, and has been developping quickly over the past few years. However, there are still many things to work on...

    Geno,

    Saw where you are heading to Greece but I lost the forum it was in. Ed just got back from there actually. What is it with Moldovans going to Greece this year man?????

    And what is it with Europeans and Speedos?

    Told Ed when they move here THAT stays in Moldova!

    Have a safe and FUN trip bud!

    The wine in Moldova is really excellent. How do you know it's good, Matt? Can you buy it in the US?

    Not sure what it is about Moldovans & Greece, as I am going from Russia to the Island of Rhodes. I chose Rhodes, as I have heard good things about the place (mostly from the British and the Americans tho'), and never been... Last year we went to Cyprus, which was nice. This year - Rhodes.

    Yup. Speedos has less friction for swimming (that is if you really swim)

    have a great trip geno. I need to plan for my next vacations. South America, Costa Rica or US Virgin Island?

    You can buy MOldovan wine here. Not at the crappy wine stores but definitely at the bigger ones.

    Maybe we should start a Moldovan wine store, Matt, and get a nice affiliate program up for it... What do you say, Matt?

    I need to learn more about Moldovan Wines. I spent a few weeks visiting Romania last year and I enjoyed their wines. I had to look on a map to check exactly where Moldava is. I drove from Brasov to Bacau and I didn't know it was just a few miles away from Moldova. I plan to visit most of the East European countries, so Moldova could be next. Some interesting wine tours on http://www.turism.md/eng/wine/
    Route 2. A "divine" route to the north of Moldova, sounds promising.

    Divin is a 5+ years aged cognac. Not sure why they've added the "e" at the end. In Romanian it is spelled (and read) as "divin".

    Good stuff. Come visit me when I'm in Moldova, Zeus, and I'll take you on one of those routes!! Not kidding.

    I guess, I already have an idea of what trip to get everyone into after this one.
