2014 was for sure an amazing year for us! Most of our weekends were busy and we were most of the time on the road to some new destination. We took the time, more than ever, to discover Romania and its beauties. Mountains were in the top, as we went hiking as much as we could and as much as the weather allowed us to…and sometimes even if the weather didn’t necessarily allow us to. Here’s how 2014 looked liked in between the borders of Romania.
We were planning this trip since last year, but somehow it didn’t find its place in none of the available weekends we had last summer. But, as we had a longer weekend this August, we decided to have this 4 days trip in the Făgăraș mountains (again!) to reach the highest peak of the Romanian Carpathians, the Moldoveanu Peak (2544m). It was not as easy to get there as I imagined in the first place, but looking back now, I feel a great accomplishment that we succeeded (with some effort, both mental and physical, but we did it). In the end, that’s what makes a hiking trip so intense and memorable…mountains are always unpredictable, but they do offer an immense satisfaction to someone who is capable of appreciating beautiful and simple things (or places).
