Day two (May 1) in Sibiu was a very relaxed day. This is what a holiday ought to be. No waking up early or hiking like I’m on military training. This day was dedicated to leisurely walking around Sibiu. In the limited time that Mari-an’s been living here, she’s amassed such knowledge about the area and its surrounds that surely she can run her own guided walking tours not just within Sibiu but to neighbouring towns as well! I was really impressed and truly grateful that she’s enriched me by imparting local facts as we strolled along cobblestoned streets and narrow alleyways.
We decided to take a break and have a drink in one of the many pubs in town. It’s a bit odd, that some places here don’t sell any food. You get a menu with all sorts of drinks but nothing to nibble on, not even a pack of chips or peanuts. Gossip and philosophical thoughts became our fodder. We talked about life and love and I shared a little bit about my first relationship but I’m not blogging about him. (I heard from a friend that he’s currently gallivanting in South America. How lovely.)
Refreshed, we climbed the town’s clock tower were you could get a view of the entire town.
Then in the evening, we had dinner at Hermania and midway during our meal, a violinist serenaded the patrons with sweet music. A perfect way to end a perfectly relaxing day.
