248-2020 – White House with the Red Rooftop


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the white house with the red rooftop I see everyday from my kitchen window.

235-2020 – Gulas


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a traditional dish in Transilvania: Gulas Our neighbours invited us to join them for lunch and they cooked a wonderful Gulas with chicken and polenta.

212-2020 – Bucegi National Park


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is an aerial image of Bucegi National Park in Romania. Initially we joined the queue to hop on the cable car from Busteni to Babele, about 2200 m altitude. After 1 hour in the queue, we realised that we were almost not moving, so we end up taking a taxi to “Cabana Piatra Arsa” via Sinaia. From there, it was a nice climb up all the way up to “Babele” aka “The old ladies” and “the Sfinx”. Like, comment & share! 1 likes
