Romania: Sibiel

     Sibiel was the first over-night destination of our trip. It's a picturesque village situated very near to the city of Sibiu. It's so peaceful and quiet and beautiful!

     Unfortunately, we started off with the wrong foot. As we got there towards the evening, we were informed that the road towards the Bed&Breakfast we had our reservations with was completely inaccessible. We tried a couple of other pensions around, they were all either fully booked, either not working without previous reservation. It was getting dark and we weren't sure what to do, when a man returning from field work came over and suggested his wife's pension for the night.

     Having no other choice, we went to see it and although it was completely miserable, we decided to stay there for the night... We are not the kind of people to expect high luxury, especially when we were searching for the authentic feel of life in the Romanian countryside, but this place was dirty (I'll spare you the gruesome details)! That has no excuse in my book...

     I was up at the crack of dawn, waiting for it to be acceptable to wake up everyone else, packed up and went straight to the pension across the street... The one with the beautiful garden full of flowers, perfectly decorated interiors, spacious rooms with crisp, clean white sheets and free WiFi! ...and all was well in the world!   :)
