|Red line shows our itinerary...|
It was a whirlwind! We were on the road a lot so we could see as much as possible. But, in the short time, it was just tastes of different regions.
We first went to Romania in 1998 to be in George and Ioana's wedding. The country has done a 180 since then and is growing in leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, the guys could not join us this visit.
We did not get to revisit the seaside town of Constanta or the Dacian ruins, but next time...
Our first stop was Brasov and OF COURSE Castle Bran in Transylvania. We did not see Bran last time since I had to pick one castle to visit and that was Peles. So this time, we made sure to cover it.
Brasov is an amazing town. I hope to go back and sketch more! We only got a little taste of the city.

While I sketched this, they were giving a free opera concert. It seemed to cover a lot of the greatest hits and was a bit of a sampler platter of songs.
|A peacock is a good image in Brasov. It is a proud and beautiful city.|
|Did you think I would not sketch it?|
|Queen Marie's Chapel we thought... Gorgeous with all the moss...|
