This is a one year blog, starting on my 40th birthday and ending on my 41st birthday. I quit my job of 10 years and will go back to becoming a fulltime student & musician. I also moved out of the USA and will be living in Taiwan and France for the next year. I honestly don't know where or what I'll be doing a year from now...but life's about the journey and not the destination...so ready or not, here we go.

Dracula's Castle - Poenari Fortress
Well I made it to the "real"Dracula's Castle, "Poenari Fortress" in Transylvania, Romania (thanks to my Romanian friends Gabriel and Ana). The drive from Bucharest took almost 3 hours, and we had to climb all 1480 stairs, but how can you go to Romania, without visiting a place where Vlad "the Impaler" Tepes once lived?
Here's a short video I shot at the top inside the ruins of Poenari Fortress:
I was even able to pick up a bottle of some Prince Tepes wine...Merlot, red wine of course.
