Thanks for sharing your journey with us; it's a shame you couldn't keep riding north in order to complete the Transfagarasan route and that you didn't get to see Balea well, but that's just extra reasons to go back!
BTW, fantastic pictures. Especially your pleasant encounter with the horses.

Awesome pics and scenery. Thanks for letting me see a part of the world I will probably never get to see for myself.
What I meant was that this time, I went for the obvious, the place everyone in Romania knows about, the place everyone goes to. I know there are lots of other amazing places, that fewer people know about, that are most probably hiding at the end of unpaved, less used roads. I'm not too good at finding those places, but all the kind comments I received for this ride report made me start thinking about exploring more...

Right, I'll definitely be back there! As for the horse, although it's a bike forum, I'll share a couple extra pics with you guys :



I saw the horses the first time while climbing. They were by the side of the road.

When I came back, I was planning to stop closer to them and make better pictures. But I found they had change location :









I wonder what the guys in the caravan were thinking then...

I really enjoyed your ride report, those were some awesome pictures. Don't think I have ever seen pictures of Romania. That road up the mountain looks like way too much fun. Keep up the good work, hopefully you get out again soon.
