Although I was only home for 5 days, I made time to celebrate Diana’s birthday, visit my grandma, have coffee at my cousin’s coffee shop and go on a short trip to the mountains, too. We packed our stuff, took with us my mom, Diana and her toys and off we were!
First, we stopped in Sinaia and ordered some traditional food- bean stew with smoked pork and chicken soup, that we enjoyed in the sun with a cold beer. Summer is back for a couple of weeks and we made sure to make the most of it.
Then we found our way to Brasov, where we’d rented a lovely Airbnb with a garden, it smelled like grapes and pine trees and I felt happy the second I set my foot there.
The city was bathed in sunlight, fall colored woods as a backdrop, it was so pretty I felt a sting. There and then I realized why I’m so much into traveling in Norway, it’s because there’s little to do, I love real towns bustling with life.
There were chestnuts to be picked by small girl hands and grandma hands, there were leaves to walk through and flowers to be photographed.
There was even a pussy cat at the airbnb and we let him in to play with us. He got some hot dog and some milk, too.
Strada Sforii, the Rope Street, is supposed to be the narrowest street in Europe. Scenic.
I think Diana had a good time, although she wished her mother was with her and her father (although he’s my brother) is an ill-tempered and poorly trained father. I wish I could raise her myself. There’s something sad about poor parents, not only do they do a lot of harm on their children, but they won’t let anybody else do the job better, either.
A bit brokenhearted, I leave you for now.
