The Danube Delta is a very special place. We hired a boat and guide to take us out on the Delta; we opted for a 2 ½ hr trip which took us just a little way into it. This is such a remote and peaceful place; we have never seen the like. And of course, it is a haven for wildlife - especially birdlife. We were lucky to choose to go late in the afternoon, as by then most of the other boats were returning, so when we got out into the open areas we were alone. Our boatman was kind enough to shut down the outboard motor a few times so we could experience the quiet – and it was absolutely quiet save for the birdsong and the frogs sitting on the lilypads.
