Walking in a winter wonderland
Just when I thought winter was over and the sunny days of spring were close…BOOM! Massive snowfall strikes again! So I’m back to my cozy sweaters, wool scarves, fluffy winter coat, hats and gloves…very well equipped for a mountain expedition. I’m kidding…I’m just going to work, but walking through the streets of Bucharest after this white nightmare can be a bit challenging. Being such a “big fan” of this season, I spend almost all evenings at home watching movies, writing some nice posts for the blog, but mostly being so pissed of with all the political situation here in Romania.
Still, trying to relax a bit and do some activities I enjoy, I figured that this kind of weather it helps a lot, because I have these beautiful pictures from a short trip to Rasnov, Brasov we took at the end of January.
We spent four freezing but beautiful and relaxing days at a 4 star hotel in the center of Rasnov, called Radsor. All I can say it that everything was perfect: big rooms, diversified and delicious breakfast and incredibly nice stuff. The hotel was its own parking, a restaurant downstairs with great food and a confectionery with many types of pastries, sweets and candies.
This trip was all about having a good time, walking in the nature, breathing in fresh air and clearing our minds. So after launching my blog in the morning, we began our short vacation with a quick break in Brasov to stroll across the old area of this medieval city and to have lunch at this beautiful and colorful Italian restaurant we love, Casa Hirscher.
During our stay in Rasnov, we visited the small city that looks more like a German village, we climbed to see the Rasnov Citadel, a landmark in Romania and we also had time to walk in the woods for one hour or two to simply enjoy the silence around.
We were very lucky to have found the mandatory winter wonderland landscape: mountains covered in snow, morning sunshine, charming towns and calmness all around.
It’s not my intention to make this story a travel post, because there are a lot to say about this historical place in Romania. I just want to share some ideas of a quick getaway, close to Bucharest, which will give you enough energy to last a month!
A picture is worth a thousand words…keep on scrolling and don’t forget to send me your favorite weekend destinations!
Good Night, lovelies! Drink a cup of hot tea and sleep tight!
