So, it's 6:30 and we figure the bus will drop us off at the bus station right next to the train station. We will grab one of the hourly trains to Brasov (about a 2 hr ride) and be good to go. No. The bus dropped us off outside of the city and about 2 hours later, we finally found the train station. Oh, Kim got no sleep on the bus and I got about an hour. It was tense.
Finally, Brasov. Brasov is a lovely town, about 200,000 people, in the center of Transylvania. Our hostel was just blah and our second night we shared a room with two deaf women who were very loud! There is a great mountain to hike in Brasov and on our way up we met an American we chatted with and enjoyed a drink with following.
We took a couple day trips, one to Zarnesti, to a Romanian national park. We did a bit of hiking, but it was generally a bust. The next day we went to Sigisoara, saw a cool church, clock tower, and where Dracula (Vlad) was born.
After three nights in Brasov, we were off to Sibiu.
