Our mini vacation has come to an end. It will probably be the only vacation we’ll have this summer and I’m happy that we had a great time.

It wasn’t exactly a vacation in the full sense of the word. There was a wedding in the family, and of course we had to attend. We just took advantage of the location of the wedding, which was at Brasov.

Considering we went as a family, I can’t really complain. It went much better then expected. We managed to make everyone happy, which in itself is an achievement of great proportions. But the best part was that we didn’t had to compromise on anything.

The wedding itself was short (comparing it with other weddings that we’ve been to). But the location, the food & the atmosphere was great.

The wedding itself was held at the Kronwell Hotel. It was one of the best weddings I’ve attended. I’m also glad it didn’t last long, because I was able to get some well deserved rest on this vacation. 3 full nights of rest! I’m well aware that I’ll spend another 2 months on the night shift so I take whatever rest I can get.

I’m also glad I did some research before leaving, regarding the local attractions in Brasov. Otherwise, we would’ve missed a lot of great things: starting from the String Street (Romanian: Strada Sforii), which they walked past by without even given a second glace, all the way to the Black Church (Romanian: Biserica Neagra).

There were so many beautiful buildings. So many streets I wanted to roam and take photos of. Really, I enjoyed Brasov more than Sibiu.

Truthfully, I wish we would’ve had more time because there were other things I wanted to see. But then again, Brasov will still be there and it will be a good enough reason to visit it again.

There was also a rock concert. Apparently it was the Frienship Days Bergenbier festival. The beer was cheap, the music was good. What more could we ask for.

But the best part of them all was no pets! Yes, I am going to say it, it was nice to not worry about Pluto and Marlanu’. It was nice to go out or stay in as we wished. Not having to worry if the dog needs to pee or that he needs a walk. As much as we love those two, It was great to have a vacation away from them.
