After a very rainy day we asked a shepherd and built up our tent next to his sheeps.

The first touring-cyclists we met on the road. A romanian couple from Cluj, which cycled a few days over easter.

PicsArt_05-04-11.04.32

The Romanians are so nice and helpful people, they gave us so much food, we needed several days to eat up everything. Picknick.

Finally we have a numberplate.

A shepherd taking care of his sheep next to the big road works where they built a new highway.

PicsArt_05-04-11.10.10

We cycled on the unfinished highway and have been so impressed how wide it is and how big the intervention to nature is.

It was the first of May today.

Another random overnight stay in the garden of very nice people, and again we got so much food.
