    Week in Romania

    Here is a link to our album from Romania. A surprisingly beautiful country!

    I can warmly recommend it! Maybe early September, or late spring would be a good time, if you aren't a fan of cold conditions.

    Mm, those pants, they have been sacrificed to produce some heat in a mountain cabin, luckily my boyfriend carried along an extra pair!

    Fabulous pics. Many thanks. I went walking there forty-eight years ago, when shepherds slept in sort of hooped bivi huts and wore off-white pajamas and wonderful black sheepskin jerkins.

    Much obliged. I went strolling there forty eight years prior when shepherds rested in kind of hooped bivi cabins and wore grayish night robe and awesome dark sheepskin jerkins.

    Happy to see this awesome place, I love their churches and castles.

    Hi FSMoeller77! Sorry for coming about this so late! But Retezat and the Faragas are the two mountain ranges we did, and they were breathtaking both!
    Fagaras is maybe a little bit calmer, less tourists hiking around there. Moldoveanu is a peak we are aiming for the next time we go there!

    Feel free to have a peak at my blog about Romania too: Retezat and Fagaras

    If you are looking for more relaxed hiking, I have heard good things about Apuseni park
