Hiking in Retezat national park in Romania

Our trip in Romania during September, 2006 provided the perfect combination of cultural and hiking activities. I especially enjoyed hiking in the Fagaras Mountains to Varful Laitel and to and from the Podragu Cabana. All of the peaks in the Transylvanian Alps are spectacular. Highlights of the trip included lunch at your grandmother’s home and the farewell dinner in Bucharest. I also enjoyed visiting the towns of Sighisoara and Sibiu. There is so much wonderful history in such places. You are to be commended for organizing such an excellent trip. From my perspective, everything went smoothly.
