Romania Holiday – 31th July 2009 – Biking in Brasov (3)


Day 6

Ahhh wat a headache. We drank a little to much beer and wine. Happily we just want to go for a small bike ride today. On the day we arrive we so the letters of Brasov in the mountains and really wanted to go there. So today it is ‘only’ cycling to the letters and back. There is a lot on the agenda today. Since we missed Bran yesterday and a visit to Transylvania is incomplete without visiting this tourist trap :-), we decided to go to Bran by car in the afternoon.

The trip to the letters of Brasov was not easy since the climb was quite steep and also had a lot of gravel and stones (and of course not forgetting the kilometers and liters of the previous day).

Then we drove to Bran by car in the afternoon. And, indeed, it was a tourist trap and a bit worse then we expected.

We have seen the castle and all the touristic crap they are selling there. In the evening we had an appointment with the sister of Reli to come to their house outside Brasov for a real romanian BBQ and some home made cherry liquor. We had a really good evening thanks!!
