Romania Holiday – 2nd August 2009 – Going back

Day 8

After getting back to Reli’s appartment at around 23:00 and having a drink, it was almost time to catch the plane. Our flight was at 6:20 and we had to be there early. So what to do, play cards, talk, or try to get a few hours of sleep. Well we did the last thing hoping it would help and set our alarm clocks at 4:00.

We all got some rest although it was difficult for all of us (Bart and Reli sleeping on a very small couch and Erik on an airbed with auto-deflation feature). Nevertheless, 4:00, shower, get dressed, leave. Luckily Reli’s car was really big so the backs easily fit together with Bart on the back seat (the trunk was already full with our other bags and the bikes wouldn’t fit in there anyway).

(Bart, do your legs still hurt?)

After a 30 minute ride, we arrive at the airport. Reli is going back towards home to go back to bed and Bart and Erik wait until our flight with WizzAir leaves for Dortmund. All went well we had a nice holiday and we want to thank Reli and his family for the warm welcome in Romania. I also want to thanks Andy and Mihai because with their help we had a mountainbike holiday we will never forget.

It was a unique experience. We saw trails that not many other people from outside Romania have seen, we drank home made Romanian liquor, had a Romanian Barbeque (including the Mici) and had some real Romanian food in a Romanian home. The Romanian hospitality made us feel at home.

  2. Hey Bart,

    We did all the work together. Weren’t you the one who wrote all the initial texts for all days and who also added a lot of pictures to the texts?

    Also, I would like to thank the wordpress developers for making a blogging tool which is so easy to setup and use.

    Cheers

  3. Nice work Erik and Bart… really interesting story once you start to read it 🙂 …. I will take the challange and I will update the missing words…

  4. It was really good to hear you had a great time in Romania. I have read so many horror stories of coming to Romania.

    If you want to help my ‘Romania is nice’ campaign, please could you upload one of your photos to my website, and a little about why Romania is so much fun.
