    Not driving the Transfagarasan Road

    June 8, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    With a shuffle to our itinerary, had a free morning today, so Gabriel suggested a drive to Lake Balea, and a chance to see the famous Tranfagarasan Road, rated by Top Gear as the best road in the world.

    The road is only open a few months a year from July to October (weather dependent), so if you can't drive the road, the next best thing is to see it!

    We drove from Sibiu to the base station of the cable car to take us to Lake Balea, arriving just after it opened at 9am. This was a good move, as queues later in the day were huge.

    The cable car travels up the valley, over the closed section of the Transfagarasan Road, and it was easy to see why it is still closed. When we reached the top, there was still enough snow to ski on (and it had a number of hardy takers, given there are no ski lifts operating), and Lake Balea was still largely frozen over.

    Vlad's real castle... just up that hill

    June 9, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We headed south today, down the Olt River Valley Road, stopping at Cozia Monastery on the way. Being Sunday morning the church and grounds were very popular, especially as it's also a pilgrimage site for Romanians as Mircea the Elder (Vlad Tepes' grandfather) is buried there. Vlad and Mircea were both leaders of the Wallachia Region, although Vlad is now more connected to neighbouring Transylvania via the Dracula stories.

    We were also scheduled to visit Vlad the Impaler's real castle (Poienari Citadel), which can only be accessed up 1480 steps through the forest, but it's currently closed due to recent bear attacks. So we just viewed it from below...

    We then drove along the southern section of the Transfagarasan Road (not the famous bit) to Vidraru Dam, before heading to Curtea de Arges, the former capital of Wallachia, and visited the cathedral where the last 4 kings of Romania are buried (the last King of Romania, Michael I abdicated in 1947 when the communists took control, and died in 2017)

    After a walk around town we had a farewell dinner with Gabriel before our tour ends tomorrow.

    Phänomenale Transfăgărășan

    August 26, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Nach einem ausgeprägten Katerfrühstück haben wir die Transfăgărășan erfahren und sind nun nach doch ca 8 h mit Bummel-Zwischenstop in Hermannstadt in Pitesti angekommen. Der Pass war atemberaubend schön, trotz nicht so tollem Wetter !
    Den Bären haben wir nicht selbst gesehen, aber etliche unserer Rallyekollegen... irgendwie schade... oder auch nicht ;-)

    Transfagarasan TOP

    August 26, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Heute sind wir als Straßenziel eine der schönsten Straßen die wir je gesehen haben gefahren. Absoluter Härtetest für Mensch und Maschine.
    Fazit: Alle Leben noch. Von eingestürzten Hängen, Gewitter, Hagel und Wassermassen war alles dabei ! Aber gerade deswegen ein unvergessliches Erlebnis 😃Read more

    Transfarga...was? Der geilste Pass ever

    August 26, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Nach der Party ging es nicht gleich nach dem tollen Sonnenaufgang los. Den ersten Teil der Strecke konnten wir zügig fahren, aber dann... wir bogen zum atemberaubend schönsten Pass über die Berge ab. Transfărăgăsăn ... unaussprechlich, aber sehenswert. Es gewitterte u regnete, kleine u große Steine auf der Straße, abgebrochene Straßenkanten und .... heißgelaufene Motoren aufwärts u abwärts stinkende Bremsen - bei den anderen. Flori hat seinen Job toll erledigt. Weiter so !
    Neben der Straße ein Braunbär... und eine unglaublich schöne Landschaft. Da fehlen eigentlich die Worte.

    Camping Arges

    July 18, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Die Strecke zur bulgarischen Grenze wollten wir nicht in einem Rutsch fahren und haben somit einen CP für heute Nacht gesucht. Den haben wir dann auch gefunden und sind hier auf einem kleinen, schnuckeligen Platz gelandet...die Pächter sind sehr nett und es herrscht eine familiäre Atmosphäre...Read more

    Top Gear Road, Transfăgărăşan

    August 26, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    According to Top Gear this is the best paved road in the world. Amazing turns through a huge mountain pass in beautiful settings. We had sun and dry conditions all the way to the top, but as we went through the tunnel the sky fell down for the decent, and it rained like crazy! We totally agree with topgear. This was an amazing ride!! 🏎🐮Read more

    Wir sind irgendwo hinter den Karpaten auf einem Campingplatz in Rumänien. Und was gibt es hier, ein sehr schnelles Internet. Das habe ich zu Hause nicht
