During the 7-10 May 2015 period, I went to find out #RomaniaAutentica: The margin of Sibiu and the Hartibaci Valley together with friends and a very nice group of travelers.

At Gheorghe's sheepfold

One of the most beautiful experiences I had at his sheepfold Gheorghe din Golcin, near Sibiu. I can say that I discovered that authentic Romania that many tourists are looking for. I also remembered my childhood.

My grandfather, God forbid, was a shepherd and I was raised as a child with traditional goodies: milk, cheese, marmalade, pastrama and everything related to this field. For me this experience was not new, but I have lived with enthusiasm in the memory of the old days.

For us it was fun to hike to the sheep and prepare our own lunch. Our hike started from Casa Soarelui Guesthouse. I walked on the Silver Valley, climbing through the forest until I reached the mountain ridge. Here I came across a place of story with wide hedges and wild cherries, and the next stop was the sheep of Gheorghe Shepherd.

Arriving at the sheepfold, we started preparing the meal. We all smoked trying to prepare our skewers with sausages, made polenta and baked shepherd's bulz in the fire. There was no shortage of sweet or savory cheese, bellows cheese, urda and onion. The meal was served on wooden "plates".

And after a hearty meal, we relaxed on the meadow, under the warm rays of the sun.

After lunch

And all this happened because of the two young people from Transylvania Guide Sibiu, Iulian and George, two mountain guides as we have rarely seen in Romania. They took care to get us tired before lunch through the mountain trails, but they were with us and made sure that we were all safe. They accompanied us throughout the trip, took care not to go hungry and guided us professionally in our most beautiful experience.

As I write these lines, you realize that we are all good, but the most important thing is that we have a memory of a different Saturday day, what you and I want. And whenever you intend to step in the footsteps, call these young people with confidence.

There are experiences that are worth living and less told, so I let you follow some pictures from our hiking at Gheorghe's sheep, the Golcin shepherd.

PS For me it was even more enjoyable because I was closer to the clouds and planes.
