Family vacation in Romania
A little bit of everything: some trekking in Piatra Craiului and Fagaras, visits to Bran Castle and walks into Brasov city center, samples of authentic rural life in places like Viscri or Ucea de Sus villages, a little bit of fishing at Beclean village and Panicel resort, a short visit to the lipizzener stud in Sambata de Jos and some riding sessions at Popasul Craiului and at Panicel. Plenty of activities to keep a Swiss based German family of four busy for almost ten days in the South of Transylvania.

Weather was so and so, I mean from sunny but windy periods to totally white out periods! Despite the white out from last day, we enjoyed a forest descent on powder snow, and like this we end our … (>>>)
well, I can say that was a great weekend for a ski tour in Bucegi mountains, and it was. Even if at 7 AM were -25 Celsius, during the day was just nice to be outside on snow. And was enough snow, even that on the main ski resorts from Romania snow is still missing!
Saturday I was with 2 friends skiing on West part of Bucegi mountains, and we really enjoy this!
Sunday morning I went up to Bucegi plateau to meet my wife Rosana, and Mihai and Alex went to Omu peak to ski down on Cerbului valley. They had a nice ski descent on Cerbului valley towa… (>>>)
