[Romania] Sunday hike to the Măgura Peak

A glimpse of France in Toulouse

It’s not the first time we’re in France, we’ve been to Paris several times, but for some reason (mostly because Paris is so big and touristic and it tends to lose its personal and authentic touch) we never fell in love with Paris. But France deserves at least a second chance and thanks to a music concert we wanted to attend, here we are in Toulouse for a very short city break.

[Romania] Discovering Sibiu’s regions – #5: The Olt Land

That we love Sibiu is no longer a secret. Neither is that we love the whole county of Sibiu, with all its history, culture and diversity. And what’s not to love about it – beautiful landscapes, traditions that are still being kept, houses with old and well preserved architecture, villages with so many stories to be told around the fire, rich and diverse cuisine, rural life at its best. In a world that’s going too global, these villages keep to their local diversity.
