No Aussie-style forest of dumb-down signs, no speed signs, do this/ do that or the rest of the roadside-garbage...
....just ride your own race, simple as that.



















I have just as much fun in the lower, forested parts of the TransAlpina Rt67c
towards the north lateron.
There are small, interesting roads, sealed and gravel, branching off everywhere.... places and tracks to explore for months on end, I'm sure.

Now the weather is pushing us north....blackbellies over Lake Oasa.







Leaving the Transalpina for the navigational challenge of the 40km rollercoaster of small roads across the High Plains, the endless string of hairpins, narrow alleyways, 5-way market-places, dips and sweepers and endless turn-off options through Jina, Baiesi and Poiana to Saliste...now THAT, was the real kick of the day for me.

BYO....no footstool, no cash!








...and sometimes in life, one trips over something REALLY SPECIAL

Pensiunea Mioritica in Sibiel, worth the extra few k's at the end of a long day....100 times over!

What a place!! What a host, what a location, what a life's work and what a load of dreams, ideas and imagination that have been transferred into reality.
EXCEPTIONAL


Read up on the Bookings.com listing...



















Mystic Gardens, God's Little Paradise, Sibiel (near Sibiu), Romania

Sibiel (Romania) -> Sibiu -> Transfagarasan -> Budeasa (Romania)

Last day on the road !!

Everyone knows it has to come, but ...but....but how about only another 2 or 3??
PLEEEEEEASE???





A early stroll before breckie to start the day... what a beautiful place !














Anyone chomping away at breckie already? Naw??? Good!!








Might be time enough to check out the other half of the gardens...and creek, and bridges, and endless little nooks and crannies full of the weird, old and wonderful.
