... I was happy to hear that, although I will say I have felt very at ease here.
First, we went to Peles Castle and the Sinaia Monestery. She told me how a Prince visited Mount Sinai in 1695 and brought a stone back. He built the monestery as a thank you to God. In 1866, letters of invitation were sent to the royal families of England, France and Germany to rule Romania. Prince Carol from Germany accepted and became prince.
... normal;">Simona told me I was the first person from the U.S. to stay with her. I said, ' I don't think Romania gets a lot of US tourists.' She said, 'probably not.' Then it dawned on me.... How many American women come here alone? Probably not many. Am I nuts? Lol
... impressions were good, since it had a very distinct architectural style compared to most other castles you will find in Europe. The exterior was a refreshing change from the ho-hum style that is so commonly found elsewhere in Europe, so we managed to find some enjoyment before going inside, where we would surely be disappointed by dusty room after dusty room filled with bland tapestries and boring furniture.

... we came across was an all year ice rink and some people cleaning the dirt road up to a football pitch. Not very exciting.
Upon getting back to Brasov we somehow roped ourselves in to watching the entirity of a film called Wedding Daze. It was amazing! we went out for a late dinner and then returned to sleep.
The next day we headed for Sighisoara another small town outside of Brasov and is the place where Dracula was born! We met ...
... that went up a mountain. We were pretty confident we were going the right way because obviously the fortress is near the top of the mountain. Then the road started winding downhill several minutes later and still no fortress in sight. After 8 kilometres I decided to turn around and try that last sign we had seen. It turns out it was about 2 minutes from the fortress, pointing in the right direction. I think from now on we will trust the signs instead of our instincts.
