Saxon Trek meant one week of walking from one Transylvanian village to another, a 150 kilometers ride in total – with forests, hills, small villages and quiet all around us. We’ve been flirting with this idea for a couple of years now, mainly because we like hikes, walks, treks (basically anything that has to do with moving our feet for many hours during the day) and also because we are in love with the Saxon villages of Transylvania and with everything that has to do with their history, culture, traditions and gastronomy. So what better way to discover them than on foot?
Spending 6 days last summer in Pays Bigouden with a local (and not any kind of local, but one very passionate about food and gastronomy) meant that we could spoil our taste buds with everything fresh, tasty and authentic this region has to offer. I took notes responsibly and here is Pays Bigouden’s gastronomy story.

Our summer vacation in Pays Bigouden this year was by far one of the most relaxed, laid back and enjoyable trips so far. 6 days spent in villages and small towns where time almost stands still, with walks on the beach, with a boat trip, with local food, everything enjoyed at a slow pace, taking time to absorb all around us.
Beginning of summer, we visited some friends who moved to Germany and spent a couple of days in their small Northern town. We didn’t expect much of the trip when we planned it, except for spending some time together with them and catching up. But we got a bit more, very much worth to be mentioned here – a lovely small town, good weather and lots of green areas to be explored, to relax and enjoy the quiet and easy pace around.
For a visitor, Sibiu is mostly known for its old medieval town, with pedestrian areas, colorful houses with small windows in their attics called ‘the eyes of Sibiu’, for its German heritage, for its large and beautiful squares, for the villages surrounding it. Except the old town area, a few parks, the village museum, the city is mostly gray, with tall buildings, lots of cars and nothing too attractive to show. But SISAF (Sibiu International Street Art Festival) managed for the last couple of years to change this gray image a bit.
