Andreea is spending time with local newspapers looking for houses in villages in Cluj. We hope to fall in love with a place that is easily accessible from the main city of Cluj-Napoca (so that we can have access to the city when we need it and so that we remain accessible to others). Our plan is to go on daily excursions (we don’t have a car yet – so we will either rent a car when we need it or hire a taxi & driver to spend the day with us) to see places and get to know the area.
Andreea is using a couple of useful tools to get acquainted with the Cluj area. The first is a zoomable map of cluj. The second is a tool for estimating distances and travel time – there are two useful links for this that offer slightly differing estimates. One includes an illustrated path on a map and the other offers distance and time estimates via major locations.
