Bucharest – Romania

On our first day in Romania, we had just eaten some grub at a supermarket and were hanging about outside, finishing off some yummy gooey chocolate doughnuts, when a lady came up to us and said “I’m a journalist – I want to write about you”. So after chasing her car through the busy Black Sea coastal city of Constanta, we arrived at the newspaper HQ where we had an interview followed by lots of photos on the way to our digs, which they had kindly arranged for us. We were greeted by our host and the towns mayor, and given big shots of home made palinko – a strong spirit made from doubly distilled plums – and fed 2 gigantic pizzas, our third meal in as many hours. We arose bright and early in the morning (for once), and with our bags packed with goodies given by our hosts, we rolled off into the crisp early morning air.

A few locals came up to us in Bucharest, saying that they recognised us from the paper, and have since been literally inundated with requests from people to meet or cycle with us, and today at the bike shop we heard we’ve been the hot topic on the Romanian cycling forums. I just hope we can cope with our new found fame!

  1. Hey, guys, just found out about your adventure from the romanian papers… now, while you’re still in romania, I feel like I have to tell you about a couple of our really yummy things. Sooooo, you can’t leave romania without eating COVRIGI, CARNATI DE PLESCOI and COLTUNASI. And I promise that I’ll have a guinness for you tonight 😉

  2. Hi guys. You are just fantastic.
    Maybe we can meet on the Romanian part of the road if you agree. I have just sent you an e-mail.
    Keep on spinning it!
