[Romania] History Trip with a Crazy Spring Weather

This spring is quite freakish, changing rapidly from a hot season, sun and temperature over 25°C to a cold season, snow and -10°C, but waiting for the summer is not a valid option. Somewhere at the middle of March we said we should experience the first road trip with our 17 months baby. The forecast warned us that we will have changing weather, so we planned for a 2 days history trip not too far from Sibiu and we chose to follow the route Sibiu – Geoagiu – Deva – Sarmizegetuza Regia – Sibiu, a 350 km trip.

[South Africa] The Garden Route

We stayed for 2 days in the Garden Route area, hoping for a nice weather that would allow us to have a proper swim in the sea and some sun-bathing. We were a bit unfortunate and got some rain and clouds instead, but luckily the area has a lot to offer even on a bad weather.

[South Africa] Cape Town and Its Surroundings

Cape Town was one of the best parts of our trip in South Africa. Maybe because we did some of the things we like the most, staying out in the nature and also enjoying a nice swim, with a perfect summer weather.

[South Africa] Johannesburg and its surroundings

Johannesburg was our first encounter with South Africa and I have to admit that this city made the earth tremble a bit under my feet, a situation and a reality that rarely happened to me before, at least not at this scale.
