    Oltenitsa

    September 25 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Mit dem Bus geht es über Landstraßen wieder quer durch die Walachei nach Oltenitsa, wo unser Schiff auf uns wartet. Die eigentlich noch im Ausflugsprogramm enthaltene sehenswerte Patriarchenkirche in Bukarest wurde irgendwie stillschweigend unterschlagen, vermutlich weil der Ausflug eh schon durch die verzögerte Behördenfreigabe zu spät dran war.
    Kaum wieder an Bord legt die Anesha auch schon wieder ab, und nimmt Kurs aufs Delta. Am Ende des Tages kommt dann doch nochmal ein bisschen die Sonne raus.

    Sleeping on the Danube bank tonight?

    July 3, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    After cycling for almost 120 km today, driven by a desire to reach the Danube, I was looking forward to sleeping on its bank, but it turned out that the bank is rather inaccessible (for a two-wheeler at least). A kilometer of swampy forest separated me from even seeing the river. So close, yet so far away.Read more

    Beekeeping 101

    July 3, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    After a two-day break in Bucharest and Bucegi mountains, I was back in the saddle.

    This is the first time I've seen this approach to beekeeping. Park the hives in a sunflower field 😅

    The man is giving a signal to other villagers that it's safe to move cattle across the street.
    Families around here have a cow or two and they escort it to and from fields they graze on. Another moment of social interaction for the villagers.

    Little control room on an accumulation lake outlet. One of many lakes and ponds before the channel finally flows into the Danube.

    And just across the road from the accumulation lake, there's a Gypsy family makeshift settlement.
    They saw me snapping a photo and they protested very vocally 🙄
    I didn't want to stay and explain the principles of photography in public places.

    Throw a tent anywhere, that's a camp now

    July 4, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    It's so easy to camp #acrossRomania. I was woken up by the sound of a truck slowing down, surprised by my tent, then they just continued 😅
    I met them an hour's later on their way back, tree loggers.

    I'm just a couple of kilometers from the ferry, but the path became almost impassable, tractor tracks retaining water, little muddy swamps, through which I try to rush, only to end up whipped by scratchy branches. Sweaty skin reacts as if I touched poisonous ivy and starts itching.

    As the Danube is close and a lot of swampy ground, the mosquito symphony on the outer layer of the tent last night was terrifying.
    With the daylight, some other insects came to say hi. This monster was 2 cm (almost an inch) long.
