Rushing Romania

I guess it's obvious where this is...

Searching for wild bears in the forrest, ranger came later
and told us he had seen them here the day before.

Munching the last morsel of bread and feeling rather faint after 12 hours on the train without more than half a dry loaf of bread and some water, I arrive back in Budapest knowing that I need more time in Romania. Bubbling with beautiful mountains, lakes and wild bears, as well as many mystical castles, villages and the odd tacky hollywood style sign, Romania is a country of surprises... much more next time I hope, in the meantime, next destination: Turkey!

Ben,
I am reading your blog on March 21, 2010. Have you ever returned to Romania? The mountain pictures are particularly alluring. My husband and I are expecting to travel to Romania in June. (Not biking, but perhaps hiking.)
