    Really enjoyed the trip. It was a nice size of group with an excellent leader. However the flight experience was not good. Food was terrible. But the trip itself was excellent.

    Possibly, a night's stay in Brasov would have been welcomed, as returning to the country chalet each night made for long journeys.

    It would have been nice to have had a talk about the bears before going to view them
