CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing my first ever wild bear creeping out of the woods, whilst sitting in a bear hide Watching the sunset over the snowcapped peaks of the Carpathian Mountains Looking at the night stars through the bedroom skylight  

What did you think of your group leader?

Greg & Trojan not only knew lots about Romanian culture and wildlife but he also had a great sense of fun and managed to make everyone smile and feel very looked after.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

A lunchbox and water bottle is very handy for your walks. If you have a sweet tooth like me then take some travel sweets  for an energy boost on your longer walks.  Waterproof jacket and shoes are essential as the weather was very changeable when I went! Binoculars are also worth bringing.  

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I was a little nervous before this trip as it was the first time I had travelled with Exodus and on my own for a few years. I am SO glad I did it, our group was made up of a wide range of ages.  Everyone there was there for the same reason (to have a good time) and all had a great sense of adventure and fun! Katherina made us all feel very welcome and is an excellent chef, the food and menus were delicious which is fantastic after an active day of walking.
