  Abstract:  During the Interwar period the Bessarabian region, situated in south-eastern Europe between the rivers Prut and Dnestr, experienced a newfound interest from Western Europe as it united with the Kingdom of Romania, following the end of the First World War. Together with technological advances, that made travelling much less laborious than before, Bessarabia attracted the interest of foreign travelers who, moreover, sometimes wrote down and published their stories. This article deals with the description of meetings with the Bessarabian population through the books of Emannuel de Martonne, French professor, and Henry Baerlein, author of numerous texts on different subjects. In the end travel stories constitutes a description of the Other, but likewise have a lot to say about the travelers themselves.
