Yesterday we took a day off and joined Horatiu (friend and architect of our future home) and his family on a day-trip south-west of Cluj. We moved around in between the counties of Cluj and Alba Iulia.
Though we did have long strokes of beautiful sunlight it was a cold day as winter seemed to take another shot at making itself present. We left before noon and when we drove back around 08pm it started to rain, then on the hills south of Cluj-Napoca the rain turned into a surprising snow-storm that came flying at us (another first for me) almost all the way into the city.
This was my first time traveling for leisure in Romania and tasting a beautiful, abundant and raw country-side where time has mostly stood still. It was both beautiful and informative (one of the benefits of traveling with an architect who knows and loves the traditional qualities of his home-land).
