Hello! I'm Jade, an American girl who's been enchanted by the mesmerizing land of Transylvania since moving here in March 2020. At 38, I've discovered that traveling is more than just moving from one place to another; it's about savoring culinary wonders, uncovering hidden gems, and absorbing the rich history that whispers tales of yesteryears. Don't be surprised if you come across photos of me striking a yoga pose in front of a centuries-old castle or amidst the picturesque landscapes. Life in Transylvania isn't a solo journey for me. My two spirited sons, Olly and Eli, my husband Szilard, and our trio of playful rescue dogs - Bruno, Misi, and Andre - often join in on the adventures. While 'Traveling Transylvania' is my passion project, by day I immerse myself in the dynamic world of digital marketing, wielding my skills as an SEO specialist and content strategist. When I'm not wandering or weaving digital tales, you can find me lost in a book, flowing through a yoga sequence, enjoying playful times with my kiddos, or on a quest to discover the next best restaurant. Through my experiences and stories, I invite you to journey with me into the heart of Transylvania.
