Strolling through Piaţa Sfatului in Brasov’s Old Town

After we finally found a shelter for baby Rokiu (if you haven’t read the post about him: I’m talking about a puppy, not a baby human), we stopped for coffee in Brasov.

Brasov is around 30-40 mins from Bran Castle, so a perfect stop along the journey through Transilvania.

Brasov is known for its Gothic-stye Black Church and cafes. Make sure to walk through the the market square Piaţa Sfatului in the old town. It’s super pretty with its cobbled streets and surrounded by colorful baroque buildings.

The first stop of the Romania road trip was Peles Castle which is located within 2 hours by car from Bucharest. Make sure you arrive by early afternoon so that you can still enter the castle.

And now over to the cutest puppy ever..

While we were walking up to Peles Castle we heard some whining noises and suddenly cutiepie Rokiu (that’s how we called him later) showed up.

He was wet, freezing and trembling and wouldn’t stop crying. It was so heartbreaking that we wrapped him up in my scarf and took him with us. First of all to visit the castle.. at the castle we only focused on the puppy anyway and decided to cut our castle visit short and instead get Rokiu into the warm trunk of the car and find some food and water for him.

My granny came to visit me in London in November and for one weekend we went up to Edinburgh. It really does not matter during which season you decide to visit the city – it’s always super beautiful. Yes, it did rain (a lot!) But still we had an amazing time. When it rains, you just have to spend more time indoors trying out different sorts of whiskey and eating lots of haggis ..
