Hidden gems in Brasov

One of the consequences of having restless feet is that you have troubles in finding a place to call home. Brasov was a lovely temporary residence that felt like a two years holiday (probably because I was living in a hotel). And the best part of this holiday was, of course, the foodie part. My…
