Before I got to Romania, I had momentarily been lonely enough during my solo travels and nervous about staying on budget that I considered searching for flights to Singapore to find some backpackers and prices more to my liking. Fortunately, after taking the photo of men playing chess at Budapest’s train station, and heading to Brasov, Romania, for five nights of friends and fun, it was time to venture to my next stop — Cluj-Napoca.
This college town was gorgeous. One of the main squares, by day, was incredibly beautiful. But, once the sun went down, I loved the little fountain feature where tiny bursts of bubbling water would jet out from the sidewalk, lit in a variety of colors.
