Travel Blogs from Sighetu Marmatiei

Wooden churches and more wonderful countryside

A travel blog entry by diannemurray


... Met at 8am by Gigi, the frontman for Axa Travel who is a big bluff cheerful bloke, full of chat, which pleased us, as we thought he’d be a good companion for the day. Unfortunately he then told us that he was guiding another group today, and introduced us to our driver/guide Florian, who was quite introverted, almost surly, and the complete opposite of Gigi. Had a compact new Logan motor car. He was from Sighetu, and had come across yesterday, and spent the night ...

The Village Museum and a little Ukraine

... I set off. I had discovered that contrary to what I had been told before I left home, my music was available on my phone and so I happily walked to the beat of my favourite songs.

Train to Romania - Part Two

A travel blog entry by newbeginnings


We were not very far out of Debrecen when we crossed the border into Romania. I knew we had done so because at the station a police officer came on board and asked for my passport. He spoke no English, but said Canada...and then indicated he had to take my passport away. I don't like giving my passport up, but I have learned since that it is quite common. He came back with it stamped, and the train was soon underway.

Only a few stops ...
