Danes have an average of 5 to 6 weeks of holidays every year, so no wonder they are a very wanderous kind of people. Denmark being a relatively small country, the Danes usually travel abroad to follow their typical North-European appetite for outdoor activities.
Torben and Jesper chose the Bran County in Romania for their hiking trip in April 2015, hoping for some nice spring weather and fresh-green landscape. It was spring indeed, but the weather was rather challenging, keeping us at lower altitudes to avoid the unexpected snow up on the crests. The hiking was very nice non-the-less, with spectacular snow-falls and impressive snow capped ridges in the background. The local food and wine is even better at the end of a day spent out in the elements.
The mountain landscape is always a source of inspiration for photography, no matter how the weather is. One of the many reasons it is such a wonderful thing to hit the trails, be it on foot, on bike or on skis.
