24 kilometers of walking in our third day of Saxon Trek from Chirpăr to Dealul Frumos, via Veseud. A bit cloudy and chill for the day, but not that bad when you’re on the move.

Our first Saxon Trek day was an easy one, just for warm up. We walked about 13 kilometers, for about 4 hours, from Roșia to our final destination for the day, Hosman.

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?

If July and August are, for us, months when we run for the high mountains to escape the summer heat, May is for villages and relaxed country side, with good food, lots of outdoor activities for grown ups and kids and a warm sun for extra good vibes.

One might say that winter is the season to stay mostly inside and dream of summer’s warm and sunny days. 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.

Mid-November, when normally we would begin our winter hibernation, we still found enough energy to go out of the house and enjoy a special brunch organized by My Transylvania. They organize the open-air brunches in the rural areas around Sibiu, mostly during warm season, starting with the end of spring, throughout the summer and ending with the first cold days of the autumn.

Our last stop from the second road trip through the Saxon villages was Slimnic, also known as Stolzenburg.  Slimnic is on the way from Sibiu to Mediaș, two important cities in the South of Transylvania. In the medieval period the road connecting them was constantly under threat of enemy attacks.
