... a magnificent saxon church inside. The great thing about visiting places here in Romania is the complete lack of Health and Safety regulations… it means you can crawl into dark rooms and up dusty staircases all at your own risk.

But as I found out, the folk that built these places were not six foot tall, and ...

Having earned my train legs, I hopped over the tracks at the real Sibiu towards my hostel for the night. While I was quickly able to locate the rickety ladder allowing me to hop over the tracks, I ...

Most of the sheep are fairly well behaved, although one tries to make a getaway, and is pulled into line by a back leg. There is a good-natured banter between the milking men, and with our guide, who has brought a cold bottle of beer as a ritual offering. We can't communicate a lot with the ...
