Did you ever consider visiting Transylvania in autumn and meet 1X photographers as a wonderful bonus? Then here is your chance - your purse permitting of course - since Julien Oncete (member julienconcete) and Marius Cinteza (member mcinteza) are organizing a Transylvania meet-up from September 27 to October 2, 2016. See the 1X-forum for more information.
Julien and Marius will guide you through old cities like Sibiu - in 2008 cultural capital of Europe -, Sighişoara with an attractive old city centre and Brasov which is quite nice. Between brackets: Dracula's castle is in the neighbourhood, but perhaps more interesting are the villages between Brasov and the castle. They will also take you to the highest and the most spectacular mountain road in Romania, called the Transalpina road.
For more information about the sites that will be visited, I have collected some interesting websites
As to give your eyes a treat, I have selected work of a number of renowned 1X photographers from Romania.
I wish it were already September 27! Can't wait to meet and greet old and new friends. I know that friends from Belgium, UK, Norway and the Netherlands will travel to Sibiu, so why not join the party? It is so wonderful to meet the people behind the photographs you enjoy. See you in Sibiu!
