Few photos from a snow walking tour in Magura village, on Bran castle area. The region situated between Bucegi mountains and Piatra Craiului mountains offer quite a lot of options for one day tour, or 7 days tours. The tours are moderate, and are very good for those who love to take photos with life on country side. Some people tell me that this region is as it was Switzerland 50 year’s ago! And I think that is true!
On February 2009 it was a period when was snowing like in fairy tales. All was white and it was a pleasure to be out there taking some nice photos. The tour was in the area of Bran castle, in Simon and Poarta villages. Is a beautiful area for moderate hill walking, and a very nice area for those who love to take photos on the nature.

This week of February 2009 was maybe not the best for snowboarding, but some days were great. Powder snow and visibility at Balea Lake in Fagaras mountains, give us the possibility to have some nice rides on Balea valley or on Lady valley. The tours before Fagaras mountains were in Poiana Brasov and Ciucas mountains. The snow was great but the wind and fog were quite heavy, so the pleasure was not at maximum. After Fagaras mountains we drive to Sinaia ski resort, and unfortunately for 2 days we were on lower clouds, without too many options … (>>>)
The last week of February 2009 was a great ski touring week on the valleys from Bucegi mountains. We start first with quite a long traverse from Sinaia to Omu peak, on skins, with a stop for a warm soup at Babele chalet. The powder on Ialomita valley was very nice (and cold…) and after this we climb to Omu peak. Here we meet Corina and Radu, working at the Omu weather forecast station, welcoming us with a hot cup of tea! On the next day we ski on Gaura
valley and after 3 runs we descent to Padina chalet, where we stay for the next 2 nights. On the … (>>>)
If on last week of February the snow and the weather was perfect for touring in Bucegi mountains, I can’t say the same thing about the week what just end… Was enough snow, and was even snowy in almost each day and night, but was not too much visibility, and skiing was not a real pleasure. The tour was in Fagaras and Bucegi mountains, also visiting Sibiu and Sighisoara cities. The last day of the tour was the nicest one from the entire week, but the tour
was ending on that day …

The last days of March were very nice ones from all points of view! We ski in Bucegi mountains, and since yesterday afternoon, March 25, we are at Balea Lake in Fagaras mountains. Today we did some nice runs in Saua Doamnei, and on Balea Valley. As you may see on the above photo, the snow was great!

We did a one week ski tour with Iulian Cozma from March 21-29, 2009. We were seven friends who have ski-toured all over the world. Iulian, who had been reco… (>>>)
During April 9th-14th 2009, due to the Easter Holidays, I went hiking for 4 days with Kaoshortanord, Club de Muntanya, from Valencia-Spain. I can say I was pleasantly surprised to find out that, in a city like Valencia, located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, there is a club for mountain tours. Unfortunately our Black Sea cities do not have any hiking clubs at all. Anyway, as I found out during the tour, the weather in Valencia in this time of year was not very “friendly” (rainy and quite cold, as I understood). However… (>>>)
