Castle of the CountSome castles you are stunned by, others you sit in awe. But there is one that should strike fear – the Count’s castle…

No, not Math school. The one that lives on blood.

After reading this a few weeks back, we felt we had to post the link to this story. Well fear not, this is not only far removed from the Count, it’s also in the land of fairies. Yeah, they are sort of transforming Transylvania into a land of friendly mythical creatures instead of the blood thirsty kind.

All part of a market re-imaging programme. You get a limited audience seeking teethmarks on your neck. But with fairies, no. A lot more people are likely to be happy seeing a pixie fly up to them. Huh?, I hear you thinking. This was really to add up to the word count of this post.

We have also read of bloggers who are now journeying across Romania. We’ll be stealing with pride to present this link to Ramona’s blog. Not only is she fashionable (Suan says so) but she’s also traversed this one part of Europe that our handprint has not touched. So motivated to add this to the bucket list…perhaps you will too?

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. She has beautiful style, I came across her blog a year ago. I went to the castle in Bran in 2000 ! I have some analogue photo’s back in the UK, I will scan some in and post next time I am back there.

    I remember expecting the scary dark castle on a mountain, but instead it was quaint and beautiful on a lovely sunny day 🙂
