Visit Dracula at Bran Castle in Transylvania, Romania

Myth has it that high above the valley of Romania, in the principality of Transylvania, lies a castle that was once occupied by count Dracula himself. Though you actually will find the gothic Bran Castle near the town of Brasov, which has long been linked to this ancient vampire, Dracula probably won't be there when you arrive.

Images of wearing a spectacular puffy pink gown, expertly dancing at a ball with the most handsome man and being the center of everyone’s attention.

Tonight, I would be spending the night in a Irish castle with my prince (aka: husband Peter).

Spend the Day at a Country Club. Bucharest, Romania.

As we were driving up to Stejarii Country Club in Bucharest, I sat up a little straighter and properly crossed my legs, practicing my sophistication prior to arrival as I had never been to a country club before. Aren't they meant for classy women who sip fruity flavored iced tea, wear designer tennis outfits and reek of poise and refinement?
