I decided to head for the Transylvanian hills in Romania for a couple of days before pottering over to Belgrade in Serbia where I am to meet my host, Sean, who has travelled the world on his Vespa.
It was a long ride to the border and once crossed I found myself on a busy, lorry filled route at the end of a tiring day. I headed straight out in to the country and made my way to the edge of the Apuseni National Park. It was late but I felt good so I pottered on for as long as I could before I came across a hotel. At first glance it appeared closed. It may as well have been as I was the only guest. The lady at reception spoke no english but we got by with sign language and smiles!
Romania felt nice! Once off the main route it was beautiful. It reminded me of home. I had some dinner and a nice hot bath, once I had found a substitute for the missing plug (my deodorant lid was made for it) and settled in to bed listening to radio 4 on my iphone! Rock and Roll!

What a great day! I headed out early in to the park where I found some nice dirt tracks and lovely twisties. I checked out some roads that weren't on my GPS just for fun and found myself up in the snow, then I headed back down these lovely roads and made my way over to Albac on the DN75. Lovely road for bikes and totally empty. Just me and the Foo Fighters all the way. Perfect.

Now at maybe 6pm I was in a town and although fuelled and watered I had no choice but to find the
|Apuseni National Park|
Tomorrow I will head for the next national park on route to Belgrade. More twisties and more countryside. Not sure where I will sleep but I'm sure the road will deliver!
Just over 2000 miles done! Rhonda and I are doing well and still smiling
