A belate birthday gift from Charlotte. Dogsledding in Transylvania! with our Italian/Romanian friends Sorin and Chiara we went a weekend to the Mountains of Hargitha in the middle of Romania. Friday night we had a stop over in our "regular" B&B in Brasjov and on Saturday morning we drove to Batan in the Carpatian mountains. During the drive into the mountains we spotted wild deers and foxes, pretty amazing view on the beautiful country site in Romania! The lady with her dogs was waiting for us when we arrived.Apparently she and her husband are competing in Extreme Sports competitions around central Europe and the dogs need to be trained for that. If tourists are coming over and want to pay to sit on the sledge during a 2 hrs ride, they are more than happy! Our friends did only a small tour as Chiara was pregnant and didnt want to be shaken to much. Charlotte and myself went for the 2 hours into the mountains and it was great!
