Great 2 day hike in mountains and villages

Marian organized a 2 day hike for me at the last minute. It was really really great. The hikes were beautiful, the guesthouses lovely and the guides really knew their stuff. Would highly recommend reaching out to Marian if you want to plan something similar. The Romanian countryside is picture perfect
