  • Day95

    Film festival

    August 8 in Romania

    Today, we met Jürgen. He is traveling with his airplaine! We liked the idea very much and had our second breakfist together with him sharing our stories. He called the airplaine his "flying bike" :)

    We shortly visited the lighthouse and in the heat of the day we cycled 35km on small pathes next to one of the river streams. Normal people use the boat...That is why our bikes suffered from a lot of stones, we suffered from sandy parts and we had to walk trough water. Jos water holder broke off and made a hole in the plastic bottle. First thing to repair. However, we saw many animals when we had some minutes without being eaten by mosqitos.

    In Sfântu Georghe, we stay on a great camping village with large chillout areas and beach volleyball fields. Right after arrival Wi found a pin in her back wheel! Shit, this is the first flat tire of the trip. At least it did not happen in the nowhere but only next to the tent. The 15th international film festival takes place right here these days and we stay at least two nights.

    Energizing

    August 10 in Romania

    We went to the beach, played volleyball, watched more movies, got to know nice people, hung out and relaxed - today was a real holiday.
    Full of fresh energy, we continue our trip and need to catch the boat at 7 a.m. tomorrow to head south!

  • Day98

    Zu dritt unterwegs

    August 11 in Romania

    Um 5.30 Uhr wurde in der Morgenröte aufgestanden, das Zelt abgebaut, um den Katamaran um 7 Uhr zu erwischen.
    Auf der Fähre trafen wir Mark aus Hamburg, der auch mit einem Cyclocross unterwegs ist. Wir beschlossen zusammen zu fahren und kamen schon um 15 Uhr nach 92km im Ort an und füllten unseren Energiespeicher in einem Restaurant mit Wels auf. Anschließend ging es zu unserem Campingplatz, wo neben uns noch Laura aus den Niederlanden ein Gast war. Sie ist mit ihrem Hund (und seit neustem noch einem adoptiertem Straßenhund) unterwegs. Wir hatten ein interessanten Abend zu viert mit zahlreichen Moskitos, vor denen wir in Lauras Caravan Schutz suchten.Read more

    Donaudelta

    August 6 in Romania

    Heute ging es mit der Fähre wieder auf die andere Seite der Donau. Vorbei an einer kilometerlangen Schlange von wartenden Autos.
    Tulcea ist eine touristische Stadt mit leicht gehobenen Hotelpreisen. Von hier aus starten viele Ausflugstouren ins Donaudelta. An der Unterkunft trafen wir auf Claudine und ihren Begleiter und tranken erstmal ein Bier zusammen. Wir hatten schon vor 3 Tagen für eine Nacht die selbe Unterkunft.Read more

  • Day94

    Heute ging es um 13 Uhr von Tulcea mit der Fähre nach Sulina.
    Dort angekommen wurde erstmal an den Strand geradelt, um das Schwarze Meer zu sehen und darin zu schwimmen! Anschließend gab es noch Nudeln mit Erbsen aus dem Campingkocher.
    Unser "Hostel" ist auf der anderen Seite des Flusses und nur per Boot erreichbar. Die Ausstattung ist etwas abenteuerlich.

  • Day96

    Fahrrad warten und Strand

    August 9 in Romania

    Wi hat ihren platten Reifen geflickt und Jo sein rechtes Pedal auseinander genommen, dabei sind die Kugeln wild durcheinander gehüpft. Das Zusammenbauen hat dann mit Weglassen einer Kugel funktioniert.

    Mittags ging es an den Strand und in das vom Wind aufgewühlte Meer.

    Abends ging es mit Ruci, einer Rumänien die in London lebt, in ein lokales Fischrestaurant. Mit neuen Tips für Rumänien ging es Anschließend ins Open Air Kino des Film Festivals. "Under the Tree" (ein isländischer Nachbarschaftstreit Film) ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen.Read more

    Day 566: To the Danube Delta

    September 3 in Romania

    Didn't get much sleep, and were woken up around 6am by what sounded like someone a few doors away having a psychotic break. Yelling, shouting, crunching furniture. It was the same room where last night there'd been a lot of cigarette smoke and horrendous music coming from under the door. The noise came and went a bit, but of course Schnitzel was alarmed and kept barking, which we didn't like either. By around 8am we'd had enough and quickly packed our stuff and left. Just as we were leaving the day manager had arrived, and she had called the police and several security guards who were just arriving too. She said he was drunk from a wedding, but I dunno. At least we got out of there with no issues.

    Resumed driving to the south-east, heading for the coast and the Danube Delta. This is where the Danube finally empties into the Black Sea. Had to take a ferry at one point across the river, as there's no bridges in this area - classic Romanian infrastructure.

    Stopped to see an ancient Roman fort not far from the Black Sea, just near the river. For much of the empire period, the Danube served as Rome's northern border (remembering it basically runs east-west from south-west Germany across to the Black Sea). They built a lot of forts along it, and this one was basically the end of the line. Not much left, but still quite interesting, you could see baths, a church, barracks and the rest. No mosaics though.

    Went on to our accommodation a bit further down the road in a tiny town. We arrived mid afternoon since we'd left far earlier than planned, but it was no problem. The lady hosting the small hotel was very nice. We had dinner of grilled local fish and polenta which was excellent, and organised through her a boat trip out on the delta tomorrow.
