Hi everyone! I’m officially back and fully-recovered from jet lag!

Before I get started, I want to thank Megan, Anna, and Kasey for taking over Southern Exhilaration last week while I was in Romania. Be sure to check out their posts and say hello!

On July 9th, I boarded a flight for my fourth trans-Atlantic adventure for a choir tour/mission trip to central Romania aka Transylvania. (Plug in any Dracula or Young Frankenstein quote of your choice here.)

Here is a sneak peek of what I did while I was in this beautiful country.

Our first concert was in the center of Alba Iulia’s Cetatea Alba Carolina.

Sunday was filled with two concerts. One in Deva with Holy Trinity Baptist Church and one in Sebeș at a church originally built between 1240 and 1270.
