Dracula Hunting


While in Romania mid September, Greg updated his status by saying: "Today, I've ridden a train through the Carpathians, climbed 1408 stairs and stood in Dracula's castle, and sat by a lake on a mountain top". Michelle commented: "You shorted yourself 72 stairs 1480".

This is a layout featuring the spectacular view from the fortress and photos later in the trip when they toured the island where Dracula was to have been buried.

Journaling: "Transylvanian born Vlad 111 Dracula is revered as a folk hero by Romanians for driving off invading Turks. In this fortress high atop a mountain "Vlad the Impaler" is said the have killed many civilians. Killed in 1474 fighting the Turks, Dracula's head was cut off. He was buried at the isolated Snagov Monastery. Though the corpse disappeared, Greg & Michelle cross Lake Snagov "vampire hunting". 2010
