Oh yeah, that brought Romania back on the table for the next trip. Last time I couldn't do many unpaved roads, and I sure missed that. Lots of good information here, I may have to re-read it with a map in front of me.

Went to Romania last August. It was so amazing, we're going back in May.

Planning to hit the Transalpina again and then swing over to Transfagarasan. Maybe we can meet up for a beer.

I'm glad you like it. That's good news you're planning to go back there, but meanwhile I moved in Germany, so there are small chances to drink a beer on the Transfagarasan this summer..

Cheers

And, indeed, it is. Not sure when, as I'm only just back from that trip, but Romania, god, what a country.

We entered at Arad and spent the night at a really friendly campsite not far from the border (Camping Route Roemenie) where we were introduced to the delights of tuica. The next day we rode past Sibiu and picked up the Transfagarasan, over the top and spent that night just south of the dam at the (wonderfully or tragically, I can't decide) named Camping Dracula and had another night on the tuica. Next day we headed south, past Bucharest (that ring road needs some work, even for Romania the surface was awful) and down to the border at Giurgiu. Bulgaria's another story, but suffice to say the first night involved a lot of rakia. It's almost as if we'd developed a taste for it.

Everyone we met in Romania was friendly, curious, welcoming, amazed we'd ridden a bike there, just...well, everything we'd hoped for and beyond. You have an absolutely beautiful country. We loved it, and I'll definitely be back.

Do it. I've been there in September and the weather was great, like nice summer days in Denmark with no problem to swim in the Black Sea. In fact, I'll spend September there, too.

Great, thanks!

Maybe we will bump into each other - if you see a semi worn red v-strom with a rider who struggles with his gps...well, thatīs me then!

Usually it's good weather, like end of summer, maybe a little rain, but it's warm. Usually I'm doing longer trips until late November...
