Bears and wolves, plus a spot of vampire hunting – we’ve been exploring the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania, Romania.  First off, it’s a bloody long drive from Chamonix (spent a few days in Slovenia on way there and back tho’ – highly recommended) and the roads are terrible once you get there, but a full on adventure.

Romania really is different – totally stuffed over during the communist era and only just starting to get on it’s feet, but having an enormous cultural heritage, 2/3 of all the bear, wolf and lynx populations in europe etc etc – the trip was certainly hard work at times, but very interesting.
