Winter hiking in Romania

I went for my second time to Romania, in the Piatra Craiului & Fagaras Mountains with Iulian for the last 2 weeks of Feb 2005, and as the first time between Christmas and New Year in 2002 I was there it was in all great! We went to Cabana Curmatura in Piatra Craiului Mountains, for a couple of days, went climbing, and allthough the weather wasn´t perfect it was nice fore the climbing. Allso we went to Balea Lake in Fagaras Mountains and went for some climbing there to for 3 days. Between all this climbing we where in Ucea de Sus Village, at Iulian’s grand mother, visiting friends, going to see the 26 th´military ski competition in Predeal and allso we went to a very nice disco in the skiresort of Poiana Brasov. Iulian had planned all the accomodations in the chalets ahead, I rearly enjoid my stay both places, in Cabana Curmatura in Piatra Craiului Mountains I had the best apple cake ever!! (and in Balae Lake I can recommend the house speciality..Anca!!) Iulian is a very nice person, with a professionel apperence, and I can recommend him for all type of alpine vacantion, and I am planning to go back in Romania next years!
