Short Stop in Bucharest
We took a train ride from Brasov (Braw show v) to Sinaia (sin eye a), on the reccommendation of Adina (mom from our last couch surfing experience in Brasov). Unfortunately it was raining and cold all day, so we really didn't get to see it. We caught a train from there to Bucharest (capital of Romania) and arrived around 4pm. There we stayed with a guy named Faith and his girlfriend Alexandra. They were a wonderful couple who took us for dinner and showed us around the city. The next morning we caught a train to Thessaloniki. Our original plan was to spend a day in Sofia, Bulgaria, but due to train schedules it worked better to head right to Greece. We met a guy named Jan on the train who is from the Czech Republic. We spent the day with him in Thessaloniki on the beach by Larissa, that is on the coast of the Aegean Sea. Later that day we trained into Athens and arrived around 11pm. We found our way to our host Giannis' place and are now going to discover Athens!
