Well that’s a wrap on Europe. We are now off to Africa to experience some of the most amazing wildlife on earth. Camping on the vast Serengeti, scuba diving off the coast of Zanzibar, roaming Chobe Park, taking in Victoria Falls, and hiking Table Mountain in Cape Town to name a few. If we are lucky, we may get to experience the great wildebeest migration on the way. We spent the last fifty-two days exploring some of the known and unknown parts of Europe. From Iceland to Romania, we visited six countries across the continent. Below we discuss the best and worst parts of our travels in this continent, along with some of what we learned along the way.
There is a place where the buildings are brightly painted, cobblestones line the streets, and grape vines grown in every yard. The place is a little town called Sighișoara, found deep in the middle of Romania. The town claims the birth place of Vlad Tepes Dracul, better known as Vlad the Impaler or Dracula.
Transylvania is a region known to all as the home of Dracula but visited by few. The city of Brașov is set in the heart of this region in Romania and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountain range. It is a gorgeous town off the beaten path and one of our most enjoyable visits within Europe.
