June 2010 was a awkward summer month in Romania, with plenty of rain and cold weather. Not for Sonia and Scott, who spent about two weeks in the mountains, at the painted monasteries in Bucovina and in the Danube Delta.
We trekked through the Bucegi mountains, around Bran, Poarta, Simon, Moeciu, Fundata mountain villages and we enjoyed really good weather. It only rained over night, when we were safe back at our pension in Poarta (great food, brilliant place, quiet and relaxing place to rest after a long walking day) or at Padina.

Wandern durch das Märchenreich,
In der Zeit von 20 und 22 Juni wir haben zusamen mit Max und Birgit eine Tour in den Bran Gebiet. Diese Platzt ist ein der meist pittoresk in Rumänien durch die Bucegi und Königstein Gebirge, Bran Schloss, durch die traditionelle Bergdörfer (Bran, Poarta, Simon, Moeciu) und Hofs. Doch, dieses mal in Zusammenhang mit dem guten Wetter und die Weiden ganz mit Blumen, dieser Ort war wie Märchenreich. Wie es war duch so ein Landschaft zu wandern können Sie in die Photos schauen.
Gruße aus Rumänien,
Greetings, In October 2010 I tried with Beth and Marc to climb Moldoveanu peak, on a three days hike, but the weather was not on our side. Up at Podragu hut was already snow, and too much snow for a safe climb on the top of Romania, Moldoveanu peak, 2544 m high, so we had to re-schedule the tour.
And we decide to do the tour on June 16-18, this year, and we succeeded, as you may see on the photos below. The tour start from Balea lake, with a wonderful hike to Podragu hut. Corina just opened Podragu hut with a day before we arrived there, so all was good … (>>>)
I meet Gavin last year in June, when I was hiking in Bucegi mountains after a tour on Fagaras main ridge . He was alone, enjoying a tour in Bucegi mountains.

to be very honest my knowledge about German language are not so great, I mean I can say that I speak some German, as basic conversation, but unfortunately for the moment I’m not able to lead a Walking & culture (Wandern und Kultur) tour on our nice mountain villages, but I think that I manage this type of tour very well in English 😉 Luckily Erika and Marcel spoke English, and like this we enjoyed our tour 🙂
My guests on middle of May, 16-21 May, were coming from Berlin, Erika and Marcel, and as you may see from photos below… (>>>)
in middle of April was a really winter in South East part of Transylvania, but after 10 days all the snow, like 1 meter, was gone and the terrain was just dry as nothing was there with one week before.
Together with a Danish person, I did a 5 days walking tour on the high hills between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains. Weather was good, not completely blue sky, but was ok.
Below you may see some photos from our tour.

At middle of September I was guiding Trudy and John on Fagaras mountains, for a classic tour in Transylvanian Alps: climbing the top three highest peaks, Moldoveanu 2544 m, Negoiu 2535 m and Vistea Mare 2527 m high.
They came here from Virginia, USA, to visit a friend in a small village near Turda, and they have some days free for a tour!
We were very lucky with the weather, and our tour goes very well, as you may see on the photos below!
As many others have said, Iulian provides an excellent program, an… (>>>)
