Saturday, 04.05.19, Tulcea – Murighiol

Day 12 for the records. Had a short night because went to bed late after posting and working in the nearby Cocktail Bar. And because the early morning party freaks leaving that Bar woke me up at about 04h30. Went for a stroll about 6 a.m. and found a peaceful harbour promenade with a picturesque sun rise.

Early woken up by party finishers, motor-home was shaken a couple of times, ups. But rewarded with a first class sunrise.

After that relaxed stroll I headed for Murighol further into the Delta. It took about 40 km on a country road.
As there was no boat trip from the camp site anymore today, I cycled towards the harbor but could not find any organizers. So I explored the neighboring fields and channels and found my first pelicans!

Friday, 03.05.19, Bucharest – Tulcea

Day 11 for the records. Cosmin and Marco Polo warned me of the rather aggressive traffic in Bucharest. But my plans to reach the city center with the most points of interest evolved like this:
Walk to the nearest stop of the hop on – hop off buses. But they start only after 10 am.
Cycle to that. Hmmm
Cycle to the main boulevard and see what happens. Great choice.
Nothing special happened with the traffic and I cycled safely all morning.

Bucharest was a busy place but much better organized than I had imagined. Plenty of impressive buildings and squares, restaurants and cafes, parks and churches.
Time to move on and head for one of the main targets of the journey:
The Delta of the mighty river Danube.
