(S) Who drives into the middle of nowhere Romania only to see Vlad Tepes' real castle - Poinari Castle? And who then gets out of their car and climbs 1400 + steps to the top to see the crumbling, barely there, ruins? These two travelers, that's who! Yes, that's right. We drove all the way to Curtea de Argus, spent the night and then got up the next day with our only goal being seeing this real place where Vlad Dracula Tepes lived with his wife. Yes, he was married. She might have been crazy, too.
The caretaker was a bizarre dude, with piercing see right thru you blue eyes. Chad was convinced he would not show up in his pictures. Or would swoop by in his cape. All possibilities here in Romania.
