Fairytale Weekend!!


HUNEDOARA

CASTLE

ROMANIA


Wow!! I thought I was on the set in a Harry Potter film.

Isn't it magnificent??


Kathy , Abby, Yasmina and myself decided to have a weekend break and so that Abby (our volunteer for 3 months) could see a little more of Romania and for me of course. We started off Friday mid day with a picnic packed for stops on the way. Our destination to be Alba Iulia (the old capital of Romania before Bucharest. As we were going through Lipova I we stopped to go into the Catholic Cathedral there which is beautiful and I really thought I would never visit again. I managed to climb the steps and go inside and I was so pleased to be in this wonderful place again where I can honestly say I feel God's presence. We had a wee picnic outside after before we set off again.

The countryside was so lovely with all the blossom trees out and lambs in the fields at play. Got to Alba Iulia about 8pm and booked in at The Astoria Hotel (just outside the city). The Hotel was very nice and we had evening meal then relaxed before bed. In the morning the scenery from our window was rolling hillsides and more sheep and lambs with the shepherd. The water features were super with giant carp , little streams and waterfalls. After breakfast we made for the Cetate (citadel) my goodness it was a site to be seen. More steps but well worth it. Soldiers dressed in the uniform of the old epoch patrolled. I will put some photo's on the next post and you will see how it was.

I am so glad we went and as we have now found out there are a lot of the sites we did not see , so we hope to go back and see more.
