After another traditional Ukrainian meal for breakfast, we left Gabriel's and Elena's place. We cycled through the Southeast of Hungary which is completely flat. For the first 40km, we were faced by headwinds. Afterwards, we got more lucky and the winds pushed from behind.
In this region, there's small rivers and lakes and lots of plains for birdwatching. We saw uncountable storks, some young ones tried their first steps or even flying.
Before leaving Hungary, we wanted to eat some Gulasch. But as we couldn't find a Hungarian restaurant, we ate pizza instead.
Then we crossed into Romania. Our first country outside of the Schengen area on this trip, but everything went smoothly. We cycled into Oradea where we can stay with our hosts Alin and Jo. We went for a walk around in the city which is quite beautiful. Obviously, the mayor is keen on having all the old impressive buildings renovated.
Alin and Jo gave us many recommendations about what to see in Romania. It's gonna be a challenge fitting everything into our route 😉Read more
