Cool pics! First one is 20km far away from my place and it's called "Palma" (it's a stone hand sculpture there), in the second one it's the bridge over Bicaz lake - Poiana Largului and the third one is in the Bicaz Keys "Cheile Bicazului".
Bellow is the spring version of "Palma"

It's great to see the snowy version of the EXACT same picture!

So what is the PALMA really about?




So, then this place is close to you too?





Why don't you guys give us some hints to where to ride around your beautiful country? I'm sure it would be a great help for all of us riding in or through Romania

@nerudarider
*The "Palma" (hand) story is not so spectacular but the view from there is magnific. There is the point where the builder teams met when they finished the road thru mountains. One came from Campulung Moldovenesc and the other from Radauti. Then they shaked hands and build that big stone hand. And then they got sloshed ( )
**Yes, the 2nd pic is taken on Sucevita monastery and I live 16km far away from it. It's one of the most beautiful monasteries in the world. If interested, anyone can ask the nuns what do the church walls paintings represent. They speak english and french and the paintings meanings are just awesome.
***There are too many places to see. It depends on the exact area.

Never expected

Hello Romania! Well, originally from San Francisco, married a Canadian in Vancouver, now living in Edinburgh, Scotland, and just learned I'll be travelling to Romania regularly for work. I would hever have imagined this in a million years. Sadly my V-Strom DL1000 is collecting dust in Canada, but I will have a bike on this side soon. Who knows, once I have my bearings in Bucharest maybe I'll plan a trip.
