CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The highlight of the trip for me was seeing 9 wild bears from the bear hide, mainly adult females with cubs.

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leaders were great and very knowledgable about the local area, culture and wildlife. Between them, Cosmin and Udo were able to answer the majority of my questions. Udo also provided plenty of entertainment throughout the week! Katharina and Herman were welcoming hosts at the guesthouse and made the stay very comfortable.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't hang on to leftover Lei with the intention of buying souvenirs at the airport. Apart from the food court, you will need Euros. Oh, and watch the palinc?- you have been warned!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The food was a really pleasant surprise! I thought it would be limited but I havn't eaten so well in a long time. I never knew there were so many ways to eat cabbage!
