Posted By on May 19, 2015 | 0 comments


So, towards the end of May we went on a 2-week trip in Romania, Moldova, Transnistria and Ukraine.  Sighisoara, in the Transylvania part of Romania was our first stop.  Since there’s a lot to catch up on, I’ll manly add pictures.

About is the house where the historical figure that Dracula was based off of was born.  It is now a restaurant, which is not the most exciting thing in the world, pretty much anybody can go in for the price of a soft drink and/or a meal.

In Romania, and seems several other countries in Eastern Europe, there are a lot of small bead and breakfast (or no breakfast in our case).  Probably since there aren’t as many jobs and there is enough tourism, people prefer to just work on building bigger houses and prefer to get paid for renting it out rather than having a typical 9-5.
