Return to Bucharest ... and Leaving Romania

Friday, 27-03-2015 & Saturday, 28-03-2015. 

Days 219 & 220. 

Our time in Brasov was winding down, which meant our time in Romania was nearing an end. But we still had a few places to go and some people to meet.

Thursday, 26-03-2015. Day 218. 

Villages, Churches, Princes. 

We enjoyed our tour with The Land of Dracula Tours so much, that we signed up for another one, this time to visit the Saxon villages of Sighisoara and Viscri, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

A Visit to Castle Dracula

A Visit to Castle Dracula

 

Tuesday. 24-03-2015. Day 216. 

Fortresses, Vampires, and Bears. 

If you're going to be in Transylvania, sooner than later you're going to hear about Dracula. So before he could find us, we decided we were going to go to him. The warnings were there, however—Castle Dracula, or Bran Castle as it is properly known—really has little to do with Dracula, either the vampire from fiction or the prince from reality. But still. an adventuring family has to answer the call of adventure.

Walking Around Bucharest in the Rain.
