Now it's getting exciting! It was a long time on my wish list; maybe more on my secret wish list. But for no reason it is a bit awkward. Why? I have no idea ... in theory it will be bloody, funny and definitely exciting! It goes to Transylvania!
Deniz is 24, Romanian and works abroad. He took us one night in his VW Golf - into a world full of homesickness, pop music and lovesickness.
"Atentie Pericol! - Bärengefahr "is written on the sign in the forest. The nearest big city Brasov is just 20 kilometers away. The Romanian Carpathians are bearland ...
Behind Transylvania lies Wallachia. They actually exist. And here once the historical Count Dracula should have lived and ravaged. Five friends make their way to the realm of vampires.
Romania has grounded me once again. When visiting these two sisters in a Romanian village, I have at least gotten an idea of what life in this country can be like when you have little money and almost nothing. When you get old and the world just keeps turning in front of the door.
The dropout, the unknown being. Until now. In Romania, I finally met a representative of this species in person and spent a few days in his new life plan. Of course, I could not help but write down his story. The story of one who sank and found happiness.
Romania - that's the home of thieves and Sozialschmarotzern who come to Germany to Hartz 4 and apply for child support to supplement it then by shoplifting. Prejudices are there to be dismantled and you think Mark Twain is deadly to travel. And so I had a mission for my bike ride along the Romanian Danube.
I was at the beginning of my journey and I am looking for adventure. After the cool monotony of Hungary, I hoped to finally find it in my next country: Romania - that sounded mysterious and promising. In fact, 48 hours after I arrived, I did not notice two Easter eggs, my first dog attack and a muddy bike on the credit side.
