got a dorm that was like a passageway to a 10 bed dorm and an 8 bed dorm I think.. Three connecting doors - one from reception and the others into the 10 bed dorm and 8 bed dorm. Was just impossible to sleep - doors banging all night as people passed through. Plus all lockers were in my space. ( a dorm with 4 beds!!!!!!!!)
Kitchen had 1 element working on the stove. Not easy to cook anything unless it was a one pot dish ( spaghetti with no sauce!!!!!) And at 50 lei ( 12 euro) was not value

We encounter a lot of traffic and slow to a crawl. It becomes apparent why shortly, as we pass through the biggest open-air market I have ever seen. It's like a gigantic car boot sale with ...
... again as I wanted to video the two squares before heading out on the supposed 162 km trip to Sibiu. The trip into town was cool, and I even convinced one of the locals to pose with me on the video :), her little baby girl liked me immediately :). After that I set off out of town and once again was plagued ...
... for a short break to catch your breath, stretch and grab that essential sip of water.
I climbed the stairs with tour mate Courtney who was almost 5 months pregnant. Good on her to climb the stairs and try in her condition. Everyone continued to climb at his or her pace and we took it slow and steady.
Even though it took us over an hour to climb to the top, we made it!! Our tourmates were waiting for us up top and clapped as we ...
