[Romania] Discovering Sibiu’s regions – #3: The Târnavelor Region

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.

[Italy] Discovering the Piedmont Cuisine in Turin

Yes, I know – when someone thinks about Italy and gastronomy, one will definitely say pasta and pizza. But when getting to travel around the country for several times, you will find out that each region has its own specialties and many times it’s neither pizza, nor pasta.

Of course, when having a family with kids this becomes a bit difficult to achieve and alternatives have to be found. But lucky for us, the Sibiu County has so much to offer in terms of family escapes.
