    Mud vulcanos

    July 26, 2020 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Another long day ahead, another early start. Again, we stopped for breakfast at a minimarket after 25km. This time, a group of people surrounded us as soon as we stopped. They all wanted to know about our trip and couldn't believe we cycled from Germany to Romania. A guy who works in Germany and spoke broken German later explained to us that the group were gipsies and we should be careful. We didn't feel unsafe around them though.
    The first 95km of today's route were very flat again and sometimes reminded us of Mongolia. The wind had turned to Northern directions and was a lot more challenging, so we couldn't go as fast as yesterday. Still, we made the boring part by noon and stopped for lunch in order to regain energy for the last, more interesting, 30km day.
    We had to climb again, never higher than 400m, but steep and often and on gravel. At one section, we even had to push our bikes on the loose rocks. But the effort was totally worth it, as we were rewarded by beautiful small mountain paths on the way down.
    Our destination today was a private campground next to some mud volcanos. After a refreshing shower, we visited those and enjoyed the view of the blubbering mud pools surrounded by lush green mountains. Another very cool spot in Romania!

    Zu den Schlammvulkanen

    September 10, 2018 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Nach dem Frühstück und einem Strandspaziergang verlassen wir das schwarze Meer und es geht wieder durch die kleine Walachei 294km in 6 Stunden, inklusive einer Stunde Mittagspause in Buzau mit "Thüringer Bratwurst". Wir fahren durch urige Dörfer und chaotische Städte und erreichen am Nachmittag den sehr schönen, in einem kleinen Tal eingebetteten Campingplatz Muddylan am Paclele Mici, dem kleineren aber schönerem Vulkangebiet. Wir wandern am späten Nachmittag gemütlich zu den Vulkanen und finden eine Mondlanschaft vor, die durch die mal am flachen Boden spuckenden, mal mehrere Meter hoch aufgetürmten blubbernden Schlamm-Wasserlöcher produzieren. Wir erleben hier einen unvergesslichen Sonnenuntergang und spazieren durch schöne Wiesen zurück zum WOMO.Read more
