    Bucharest, walk to the north

    May 31, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We had a full day walk today, from the centre of town, north to Herastrau Park, Europe's largest city park.

    The city centre was very quiet as it was in shutdown for the arrival of Pope Francis, and there were a few streets we couldn't walk along. The direct route was 6km, but after diverting to buy a local SIM card, avoiding the Pope, and detouring for caches, we probably did closer to 10km.

    On the way we stopped for chimney cake and coffee, then had a very late lunch (4pm) at Hard Rock Cafe, in Herastrau Park.

    We caught the Metro back to the town centre (5 Lei / $1.70 for a two trip ticket one each), then met some other cachers at a prearranged event, before heading back to our apartment as a thunderstorm was brewing.
