Bran, Dracula's Castle IV - You Must Not Be Alone...

"I am longing to be with you, 
and by the sea, 
where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air."

Bram Stoker - Dracula

MySpot: Flaming Shades of Fall

"Colors burst in wild explosions, 
Fiery, flaming shades of fall
All in accord with my pounding heart
Behold the autumn weaver
In bronze and yellow dying,
Colors unfold into dreams
In hordes of a thousand and one
The bleeding
Un-wearing their masks to the last notes of summer
Their flutes and horns in nightly swarming
Colors burst within
Spare me those unending fires
Bestowed upon the flaming shades of fall..."

Dark Tranquility

Horse Whisper

"Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity?
Here where grace is laced with muscle and strength by gentleness confined.

He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent;
there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient."

Brasov by Night

There are lots of lovely cafes, bars, restaurants, and clubs. 
The nightlife is quite vivid in fact, and it includes mere walking as well. 
The main street promenade is very lovely for the night walk!

Brasov - Beautiful Colored Building Running Along the City Streets

"It’s so easy for me to get caught up in the feeling of a city (...), 
where everything is just beautiful color and gorgeous buildings that are so peaceful. 
You can roam around and get lost in the labyrinth."

Nanette Lepore
