Hiking trip in Bucegi mountains, South East Carpathian, Romania

Best way to get fit for a wedding party on the other side of the world? Three good days of proper mountain hiking through all kind of weather, from mild spring to full-winter blizzards and thunder-storm pouring snow.

Maybe that wasn’t exactly what our two Canadian friends had in mind when they asked us to help organize a few days of hiking in the Carpathian Mountains, to fill in some vacation days before joining some friends’ wedding. But that’s definitely what they’ve got on their plates, and they totally enj… (>>>)

We spent two great days with Iulian, hiking in the Bucegi mountains. Bringing together a group of friends for an unusual hiking experience actually was not an easy task, with all the individual wishes, appointments, holiday plans, work issues and a bit of indecisiveness here and there. Iulian was a great help there, being flexible with the dates, the planning and quic… (>>>)

Ski touring weekend in Bucegi mountains, Romania

If is possible to add a title to a ski tour this has to be: Never stop exploring! Because things like this have to happen: Bill, a 71 years old Australian gentelman, based in England, never stopped enjoying ski touring around the world. We were very impressed by his ski touring trips record around the world and by his determination when came about weather conditions! On first and last day of our trip, traversing Bucegi mountains from Sinaia to Ialomita valley, weather was bad, quite bad as a English may say! But a mountain lover never st… (>>>)
