Travel, explore Transylvania!
If you do not want to stay all summer long in a place “with your belly in the sun”, or as it is called “relaxation”, then the next route might be great for you. When traveling you discover places and new people, learn and admire things you didn’t even imagine existed (this time in Romania, Transylvania). And at the end of the summer you can tell and recommend to your friends and colleagues your adventures.
We explored only a small part of Transylvania, and surely didn’t covered everything what is there to see, because we went away for only 5 days with nothing planed in advanced. But it had a little bit of everything: cities, castle, fortresses, nature, hiking and a lot of good food. And a lot of driving, so be prepared for that.
So, here is our itinerary from 2017 summer vacation (aka honey-week) in Transylvania.
