I had to go on a week-long study trip in Romania in 2015. It was part of the international exchange programs between my French university and a Romanian one. Romania is starting to invest more in developing its industrial and manufacturing industries as it opens itself up internationally. Romania has long been overlooked as a tourist destination. However, over the last 3 years, the country is becoming a popular travel destination as the country develops itself as an industry leader and brand.
Never, in my life would I EVER have thought I would visit Transylvania! The small town with a historical castle responsible for the infamous novel ‘Count Dracula’ by Brahm Stroker.
This trip was never on my personal itinerary. This was actually part of a week long business trip in Romania and they treated us to visiting Transylvania.
