I am a person with a huge curiosity. I am always planning my next trip and therefore I know exactly what people are looking for during their travels. Professionally, I graduated from the faculty of architecture in Bucharest. I defended my Ph.D. in cultural tourism within historic centers and I also hold a degree in travel journalism and one as a tour guide.

I have researched and know lots of hidden places in Sibiu (my hometown) and its surroundings. I have found these places during my PhD research or while exploring the town's surroundings with my friends. I would like to share all my local knowledge with you and make your trip to Sibiu/ Romania one of the best experiences of your life.

I'd be very happy if you contact me during your visit to Sibiu. Welcome!
