We’re just been on a big drive on the Transfagarasan Road. We head back to Bucharest from Sinaia tomorrow, then overnight train from Bucharest to Chisinau. We have a day in Chisinau, then leave for Tiraspol the next morning. If we are going to encounter any hassle, it’s going to be at the Moldovan border with Transdniestr (the country that doesn’t exist), which should be on the 17th, so fingers crossed it all goes ok.
Update: In Your Pocket have an article on the Transfagarasan Road. They’re right about the weather conditions – it was so foggy we couldn’t see the lake, and freezing cold on one side of the summit, then brilliant sunshine on the other side of the tunnel.
