A trip to the mountains

Saturday it was raining here in Bucharest, so we could not go swimming as planned, instead we decided to go to the mountains, along Transfagarasan (a road through the mountains, at extreme altitude - the highest point is at 2000+, that is only opened one or two months a year, during summer). The road is very scenic, with breath taking views, and we (and Yuki as well) enjoyed it very much.

At Balea Lac (the most important stop along the road, a place where you can ski till June, and there was still snow at the end of July as well) we took some pictures and ate some delicious home made chocolate & fresh picked raspberries sold there.

I knew that at that altitude it should be cold, but considering the 35 degrees Celsius in Bucharest, I couldn't dress warmly, so I was stuck at 15 degrees with a pair of bermudas, a t-shirt and a wind jacket, but somehow I survived, because I was wise enough to bring with me a pair of extra warm shoes (a pair of ballerinas from Puma) to change the gladiator sandals I was wearing.
