What you'll do

Tour of the iconic Transylvanian villages of Sibiu Marginimea Sibiului contains the villages around Sibiu, well known for their well-kept traditions, sheep breeding, and handicrafts. The most famous sheep cheeses of Romania, come from this area. My hometown Gura Râului (Mouth of the River) is about 20 minutes vest of Sibiu. Little has changed here in the past 100 years and locals are so proud of their heritage that they are resilient to anything the modern world tries to charm them with. They are charming but not easy to charm. We will visit a traditional Transylvanian household, the traditional tapestry, the bread ovens, the stalls. The next hours we will visit 4 iconic villages of this area and right by the time hunger strikes, we will have a warm lunch in a local household. Today you will find out how weddings were arranged, traditions that needed to be followed by unmarried people, how locals use to have fun and socialize 100 years ago and how much the moon phases, religion, and superstitions matter. In case the date you desire is not available in my calendar, just text me and we will arrange things. I might be available on short notice.

Gabriela

Hello traveler, I am a former corporate manager that quit its job and moved to the countryside in a tiny house on wheels. I was born and raised in Transylvania and love this region for its simplicity, traditions and warm-hearted locals. Also Transylvanian cuisine, with its unspoiled food, and herbs..are to be remembered. This tour will be a return to innocence, roots and simple things. When I am not with you, I run children camps in the countryside. I also like connecting with locals, finding out their stories, watching them handcraft something.

What's included
