Day 6 – Finding the peace

Today was a travel day. I arrived high in the mountains, at the Arnota Monastery in Valcea county. You have to travel 30 minutes off road by car to reach it. This monastery is very old and holds the remaining of an old voivode Matei Basarab. It is said that he took refuge there from the turks who followed him. Since hiding there saved his life, he decided to build a monastery to thank God for saving his life. Going back to the picture, is a good place for people to meditate and contemplate since it’s on top of the mountain and the large overview of the valley gives you a felling of peace.

Can’t wait to share with you tomorrow another story!
