Hard question to answer and depends on what way you look at it. The first trip without my parents was in 1991, I lived abroad for the first time in 2003, I visited all 7 continents in 2010 and I'm still on the move as we speak. In general, I've traveled for most of my adult life.
I'm all of those. I have backpacked for months on end, I have been a long-term traveler for a while. I have worked while traveling on many occasions and lived and worked abroad in quite a few places.
Again, it's up for debate. Officially I've visited 108, though if you count disputed countries and regions, it would be 121.

I got a cheap flight to Bucharest and I was also there for football.
It exceeded my expectations. I stayed for 3 weeks, originally planned just a week there.
I loved it.
The girls are especially friendly. The guys take a bit more effort to talk to and there are some odd guys there, but overall, I enjoyed speaking with Romanians.
Yes, I made lots of friends there in Brasov and Bucharest. I was in the north too but didn't keep touch with the people I met there. It was very fast.
Yes, I always have funny stories! I partied with a tour company on the train from Chisinau to Bucharest, it a was crazy night train and didn't sleep. I had a few pub crawls in Bucharest and Brasov. I got naked at the hill at the top of Brasov, admiring the view in peace.
Yes, two friends of mine also visited.
Perhaps just the tramps on the streets and too many dogs on the streets in some parts of it.
Yes, I could easily live there.
Head to the north of Romania and tour Sucevita, Suceava, Cacica, Marginea, and Moldovita. It's marvelous. Stay in the old town of Bucharest. It was fantastic.
Yes, I do. I'm from Northern Ireland and I believe Bram Stoker was Irish, so we'll go along with what he wrote.
