Winter is coming they say, but meanwhile we’re mid November, which is the coziest month of the year. Not too cold, yet cold enough to stay inside with a pumpkin spice latte to keep you warm. Or you can skip the latte.
Either way, this is the perfect time of the year to get tucked in blankets and have a good read or binge watching Netflix or enjoying a fun indoor activity. Speaking of which, there are some quite fun activities you can do in and around Cluj-Napoca.
And if you’re a fan of anything technology, we believe you’re going to like them. If you’re as much of a tech lover as we are, then this is for you. Let’s begin!
