For the non-romanian learners, this statement is literally true. Romania doesn't have that many highways and it takes a while to travel across the country.

Couldn't "ţara" be understood as "land", here?

Certainly not. We have different words for it. Beside of some figurative speech, ”țară” only means country (well, mostly...)

I found the word "pamint" for "land" in Romanian. (The "a" has a "smiley-type" accent and, I guess, the "i" [which has the other diacritic] can be the "a" with the other diacritic.

yeah when I went to romania we travelled around by bus and it felt like the highways were very disorganized, but the women were great!
