Wandertour in Rumänien, Fagaras, Piatra Craiului und Bucegi Gebirge

Was macht man, wenn die Fotokamera, die man sehr oft mit viel Begeisterung benutzt, kaputt ist…. Am Anfang fühlt man sich verloren…

Ich habe eine Übung von einem Freund bekommen: Ich sollte bewusst und nur dem Handy fotografieren. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt habe ich Wenke getroffen. Wir sind zusammen in den Berge gewandert und sie hatte auch eine besondere Art zu fotografieren. Sie benutzt nur Dias. Das hat mich an alte Zeiten erinnert. Ebenso darüber nachzudenken war sehr gut. Mit Dias, ebenso mit Papierfilmen, musste man sich gut … (>>>)

Escursione in Transilvania, CAI Esperia

Caro Julian

abbiamo trascorso una fantastica settimana, tra le cime delle tue montagne e una full immersion nella cultura romena. E’ stata una esperienza piacevole e rilassante. Le escursioni ci hanno fatto scoprire posti incantevoli senza farci sentire la fatica del cammino. Abbiamo apprezzato anche il tour culturale che ci ha portato nelle città piccole e grandi dove ancora resistono tradizioni antiche. Il formaggio della malga, i piatti tipici cucinati secondo tradizione, come a casa della tua nonna, ci hanno fatto p… (>>>)

Belgian scouts on the highest peak in Romania, Moldoveanu peak 2544 meters high

On the top of Romania, When Elena contacted us for a trekking tour in the Fagaras mountains I knew that if the weather will let us (and fortunately we had a great weather), it’s going to be a interesting experience for all the people involved.

Elena was leading a group of young Belgian scouts, so from the very begining I was expecting a lot of enthusiasm and so it was. During the three days we had a great time in the mountains and I know for sure they will not forget the moments when it was hard but they succed to overcome all the dificulties… (>>>)

Hiking vacation in Fagaras mountains and Ucea de Sus village

Omer, Ray, Or and Oran came to Romania form Israel to hike in the Fagaras Mountains. And some epic hiking they did: they were faced with harder physically and more challenging technically trails than they anticipated (or expected), but what they lacked in specific mountain skills (and gear) they more than compensated with determination, positive thinking and good humor. Always in the mood for singing, no matter how steep or rocky the mountain trails were, or how tired their legs were.We had our share of clouds but almost no rain (it on… (>>>)

Bergwandern in den Siebenbürger Alpen

Last year, on July 2010, I hiked with Christian from Stuttgart on the Fagaras main ridge, from far East to Podragu hut, on Central part of Fagaras mountains. We did this hike camping on a tent on the main ridge of Fagaras for 3 days. I can say the weather was not as we expected, was raining all the time, but even like this we climbed Moldoveanu peak, and we enjoy some tough hikes.

This year, on July 2011, Christian return to his favorite mountains, Fagaras mountains, for another challenging tour. This time we had great weather. On this year hik… (>>>)

Climbing highest peak in Romania

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 … (>>>)
