I should clarify something right off. Perhaps a better title for this post would have been The Spookiest Places Around The World! (that we have visited). There may be scarier places that we haven’t been (yet), but if a place gave us goosebumps, hair-raising chills or an any way tipped […]Read More
The six gravediggers sweating in shirtsleeves were respectfully quiet as they heaved shovelfuls of earth high in the air. As they were in the far corner of the graveyard, I wasn’t quite close enough to get a good look at what they were doing – and wasn’t quite sure I […]Read More
We recently had the opportunity to explore a region of Romania many people gloss over when they decide on Romania as a vacation destination. You may have heard of the night life in Bucharest, the Castles of Brasov, and the beauty of Sibiu, but Neamt County in Romania is home […]Read More
As we sat down to our first meal in Romania, the rules were simple. “There will be meat. Lots of meat. Here in Romania, we love our meat!” Sign me up! I’m a true carnivore at heart and while I adore the pastas and gnocchi we’d been eating in Italy […]Read More
It only took about a minute before the city of Sibiu stole our hearts completely. The hidden alleys that whispered of secrets to be found. The charm of the village architecture and the kindness of the townspeople made Sibiu a place we will never forget.
We’d love to take you on a photo tour of the city we found completely enticing. Our visit to Sibiu came through the recommendation of other travelers (one of our best ways of finding new spots!). They all warned us that we would love Sibiu – and they were SO right! Chosen as the European Cultural Capital in 2007, Sibiu has a history of showing off her charms to the world – and with good reason.
There are so many reasons to visit. As you can see from the pictures, the town itself is uniquely beautiful and totally walkable. Restaurants in Sibiu provide excellent service and incredibly delicious food at a fraction of the price of many other European cities. Hotels cater to the foreign traveler by showing hospitality in many different languages. The museums of Sibiu bring history to life and are easily accessible (over 11 in the city and 9 which can be visited under a single ticket!).
The #MySibiu Project. It is refreshing to see travelers and bloggers so passionate about a place like Sibiu. Two bloggers from Sibiu – Tudor Popa and Razvan Pop created the project called #MySibiu to bring awareness of their hometown to bloggers from around the world. Razvan was our guide around the city and his knowledge of the historical area is astounding. Thanks to Tudor and Razvan, we will always have a spot in our hearts for the charm and kindness of Sibiu.
We’ve been invited on a press trip to Romania by their Tourism Board and I don’t have anything to wear! Well, not exactly. I do have a few pairs of shorts, a bathing suit, and a few blouses I classify as “dressy” only because they don’t fall into the t-shirt […]Read More
