Down to Sinaia | Carpathians, Romania

Carpathian Mountains near Sinaia, Romania. Cable Car goes from Cota 1400 back to the valley.

The day trip to Sinaia in the Carpathians in Romania was the first trip to the mountains for me in a very long time. Four days in Bucharest is a bit too long to just see the city. And who knows when I will be back in Romania, so it seemed convenient to visit Dracula’s Neighborhood while I’m around.

More precisely we went to the small town Sinaia. Our Couchsurfing-Host in Bucharest was born there and could give us a couple of handy tips. Among other things, we got recommended the cable car for the way up to 1400m height. From below all that didn’t look so high, but in the old and a bit rundown gondola I suffered a bit from vertigo and we decided to go back down to the valley by foot.

So we walked down under the howling of the wolves and next to “Beware of Bears” signs while crossing a couple of times the two cable cars that are connecting Sinaia to the ski resort.

Nico Trinkhaus

Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures.

It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
