We went into Vlad Tepes house where he was born and is now a restaurant. We ate there. We went up a bell tower and I found my name. - Sofia
On the way to our next destination, Sighisoara, we stopped by 2 small towns on the way to our next stop Sighisoara. The towns were Prejmer and Harman and both had really cool fortified churches. These were Saxon churches that were surrounded by huge walls to protect them. They were more like fortresses. Really cool looking. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It was now time to go to Sighisoara, the birth place of Vlad Tepes aka "Dracula". This was another medieval town. We stayed right in the center of the old town at Burg Hostel. We had planned to stay 2 nights here, but daddy heard there were a lot more things to do at our next destination so we changed to one. We at at Dracula's home that was now a restaurant. When the waitress asked me what I want to drink....I said "blood" daddy and the waitress laughed. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The next morning, we woke up early and went up the bell tower. It was pretty cool. I saw a sign that
said Sofia. Daddy told me it was the capital of the country next to Romania....I am sure I will go there one day. We had great views of the town. We also went to a small musuem and went up a bunch of steps to a church and cemetary.
We then drove to Sibiu, but on the way we stopped off at Biertan. There was a HUGE fortified church. We did not go in, but we walked around the outside. It was cool.
This trip I got to use a lot of electronic stuff which made travelling easier and more fun. Daddy had bought a small computer and I was able to watch movies in the car, and go on the internet when we were in the hostels. Also one of my Mommy's friends got me an ipod.....so awesome. Daddy and I played temple run, and I was better than him. We also were able to call and SEE my brother and mommy by using Tango...It was really cool. Daddy said that talking to friends and family was a lot more difficult when he was travelling 20 years ago....Whatever.
