      July 17, 2020 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      A new day, a new climb. This time, a bit steeper than yesterday. The road we took is called "Trans-Rarau" and the views are stunning! We cycled 600m uphill in under 1h30m and as there was a little coffee shop, we decided we deserved a coffee and a pastry at the top.
      The downhill was great fun! In less than 15min on a steep, tiny, curvy road we were back at the elevation where we started.
      The next 70km or so were very scenic. The road took us along a river with high foresty mountains on both sides. We saw many houses that are only reachable via small wooden bridges. People were also very friendly. Kids ran towards us to give us a "high 5", an elderly lady sent us some air kisses and people shouted "Drum bun" (= safe trip).
      We stopped on one of those bridges for lunch and really had to hurry afterwards, in order to avoid getting drowned. We always saw the dark clouds around us, but managed to escape until the very end. 2 minutes before we reached the campground it started raining. Luckily, the campground had some kind of an indoor space. So we could cook dinner while waiting out the heavy rain. Later, it even cleared up, so we could see the nearby mountains and go for a little walk before going to sleep.

    • Day 9


      September 23, 2018 in Romania ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

      Eigentlich waren wir haut ganz gut unterwegs, es ist nun zwar eine "Chutte cheuter" aber die Landschaft ist traumhaft und die Strecken nicht mehr so anspruchsvoll wie zu Begin. Leider ist s`Käthy beim passieren einer grossen Pfütze mit dem Vorderrad weggerutscht und dabei mit dem Kopf (Helm) in einen Zaunpfahl getätscht. Zunächst sah alles halb so wild aus, aber beim nächsten Halt mussten wir eine leichte Hirnerschütterung diagnostizieren. Also haben wir vor Ort in einer Pansion eine kleine Hütte gemietet und Käthy bekam Bettruhe verordnet.
      Morgen sehen wir weiter.
