This was my favourite morning and by far my favourite place. We both woke up early, Josh went for a run with Coops. I showered and sat watching the sun slowly rise and creep through our bedroom window. The air was fresh and it was ever so still and quiet outside. I have decided that this is how I would like to spend every morning.
We had breakfast in this beautiful little yard, hidden behind over grown hedges and filled with flowers and butterflies. I fell in love with this town. I never in my wildest dreams imagined Romania to be this amazing. It's kind of sad that this country doesn't get the recognition it deserves but also good in a way as there aren't so many tourists.
Church on the hill & Sighisoara clock tower
We roamed the streets of Sighisoara in the boiling hot sun, stopping at various cafe's for a chilled cider as we watched the world go by. I love people watching! It's one of my favourite thing's to do when I'm on holiday, haha! It always amazes me how many nationalities I come across and I always wonder what their story is. I think it's really strange how we only really see the world from our perspective, we were discussing this the other night. So many people in the world but only you get to experience what you have. We climbed the steep steps up to the church on the hill, overlooking the city but my favourite view of the city was from the clock tower. A 360 degree view of Sighisoara and the rolling fields. It was like a little home away from home, minus the grey clouds and rain 😉
For lunch we stopped at an open kitchen. It was basically a woman's kitchen she had opened up to the public and you can pick from a few 'dishes of the day' and sit in her little court yard to eat. It was so cute and the food was very yummy too. Everyone we came across in Sighisoara were so friendly and helpful and really made an effort to make you feel welcome. I love that! It's hard when you don't really know the language so there is a bit of a barrier there but thank goodness we had Lena as she did all the translating - I told you I didn't have to do much this holiday!
