Alba Iulia! A place in Romania you probably haven’t heard of since there aren’t many tours to the place. Originally used as a fortress, the shape of a double-star helped with defending and attacking in the event of an invasion.

As you already know, Cluj-Napoca is the 2nd biggest city in Romania. One of their most notable destinations is Salina Turda, an underground salt mine that was converted into a theme park!
I’m a big fan of getting free stuff. When traveling through airports, free airport lounge access is always amazing since they have wifi, comfy seats, drinks and food. Lounge access can be attained with Priority Pass.
Ok, it was close to free! It was in the free “area code”. I used 44,000 Radisson Rewards hotel points to stay at the Radisson Blu Malta Golden Sands rather than paying the $300+/night the hotel was retailing for. Plus, I got an upgraded room!
If you’re flying for 15 hours, you’ll probably want to make yourself comfortable. This is the journey from Los Angeles to Sydney in the Qantas 747 Business Class seats.
After being jet-lagged and suffering from insomnia at a hostel in Dublin, it was time to recover some sleep.
While in Malta, be sure to block out a few hours to check out the Mdina Gate. It’s another fortress on Malta!
While in Malta for 8 days, I was looking for things to do and found that there were walking tours of various parts of the country, Valletta being the most popular.
