Looks like we are beginning a new tradition as we start the new year with a short hiking trip around Sibiu. Last year we had a very short trip around Cisnădioara, because there was a lot of snow and a heavy snowfall was on the way. This year we are not so gifted in terms of snow, as we are still waiting for the true magic of the winter to unfold.
After recovering from the NYE party, we decided to take a trip around Păltiniş, Sibians favorite winter destination. Păltiniş is a resort 35 km south-west from Sibiu in the Cindrel Mountains and it’s known as the highest resort in Romania, being situated at 1440 m high.
The beginning of 2015 gave us a lot of energy and we felt the need, after all the New Year’s parties, to go outside and enjoy a different kind of fun. We thought that having a short Sunday walk around Sibiu would be exactly what we needed to actually prepare for starting a new and long year. We woke up early and headed towards Cisnădioara. There was heavy snow outside, but the view was absolutely amazing.
