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.
