Monthly Recap: April 2019

So April has passed. With Csaba’s 30th birthday, with our dear friends’ wedding, there was a lot of time spent with family and friends. Though we also planned some sightseeing in the lovely town of Gyula after this wedding, all what we’ve done finally was eating a good fat (and delicious!) hamburger, because it was…

5 Reasons To Visit Sinaia, Romania

Sinaia is a lovely little town south of Brașov and just east of the Bucegi Mountains. It’s not a place where you would spend long days sightseeing, but it’s definitely one that deserves a place on your Romanian itinerary.

What? You Don’t Fall For Transylvania?

We were looking forward to fall in love with Transylvania so much. We were sure it will happen. This mysterious land of the Carpathian Mountains (and bloodthirsty vampires) looked exactly that kind of untouched, undiscovered region we’d fall head over heels in love with. Also, a lot of Hungarians (the Székely people) live in Transylvania,…

Monthly Recap: July 2018

July was about hiking and rain. Well, mostly rain. The highlight of the month was supposed to be our 10 days trip to Transylvania. We came back a bit disappointed. We refer to most of our trips as one of the best ones ever, but that week in Transylvania is a good candidate for one…

Waterfall Hunt In Nera Gorge-Beușnița National Park, Romania

We’re well aware that we need to be cautious calling a place off the beaten track. It’s such an overused term. Besides, there’s usually a track to wherever we want to go nowadays. But in case of Nera Gorge-Beușnița National Park, we call it “off the beaten track” with the utmost confidence. After all, there’s…
