Well it was another really nice day. The weather wasn’t spectacular. It was kind of rainy and chilly but really not too bad. We left at about 9am and drove two hours north (do not ask me the name of the towns though because I couldn’t pronounce these Romanian names for anything, lol!) and went to some ruins of a castle/fort:

It was very neat to see. I’d never been to something like it before and we could climb all over the place. It was kind of too bad that the weather was so cloudy because there would’ve been a really amazing view otherwise. There still was a neat view but it was impossible to capture on camera.
From there we drove a bit further to see the monasteries. And along the way I got to use one of these…
I’d never used one before, or seen one for that matter and I thought it was so funny looking, hehe.
The first monastery was so cute. It was in a tiny little village filled with flowers!

The inside of the church at the first monastery. Everything is so elaborate, it’s all covered in beautiful paintings and gold and silver. It’s really amazing.
Before leaving we let the dogs out of the car for a little bit and met this nun. She actually spoke very good English and thought Gijs was the most amazing thing. Turns out her parents live in the same city as Thea *smile*
We drove to the second and final destination of the day. This monastery was quite different than the last one. It was (and I believe still is) a place where they print a lot of Bibles. It was neat to see the old printing presses and copies of Bibles there.
monastery number two
From there we drove home….
And that was my day…Until next time *smile*
