"Use the blessed chance - that of being a human - to make the world better, fairer and more beautiful, not only for mankind but for the whole nature!" Herman Oberth - one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics.
After 3 wonderful days in Sighisoara we were heading towards Sibiu. Bought ourselves tickets to the mini-bus and 2 hours later there we were! Since Friday the weather was very very hot and the Sunday noon ride was a nightmare - I ve promised my self I ll never travel in a mini-bus (peasants traveling with frozen lambs in their bags, bicycles and what ever u can think of).
Sibiu is the European Cultural Capital of 2007 in partnership with Luxemburg and it had to be on my itinerary list. Of course we planned for many years to visit it but things dont always come out as u plan them - even now some things didnt go as we hoped but I prefer to consider them as a good excuse to come back sometime in the future.
I always thought Sibiu's size is closer to a large city but we managed to go every part of the city and
Even the canals r covered with the city's emblem..
outside on foot (we were trained on the hills of Sighisoara).
We met same polite people, from taxi drivers to locals, very clean streets and lots of joy - every day is a new serie of artistic and cultural events.The historic center and the landscape surounding the city were amaizing.
I spent incredible moments at the sheepfold, we were even invited to assist at the milking but with all the dogs, horses, donkeys around we chosed to watch from our favourite spot without disturbing anybody. We managed to visit Gaudeamus book festival, bought some books & souvenirs and in the end we realised we have more lugages than we can hadle.
Everytime u say goodbye it depressing and this last day the weather wasnt on our side... Well we arrived in our capital after 5 hours train ride and from Monday morning I ll be back on my dayly routine but I ll always remember: Dont give up on ur dreams!Meet u there!
