The car had some trouble with the first big mountain pass which led to the tiny paths of Breb. We reached the campsite with smoke coming from under the hood!
The owners Matthijs and Eveline fell in love with an old farm house and decided to transform it into a campsite. The old baboushka built the house together with her husband over 60 years ago. It must be rather odd to see guests sleeping in a hostel which used to be the cow shed that you built with your own hands.
In the meantime…
We got used to the horse and carriages being part of the normal traffic on the motorway.
We experienced A LOT of almost accidents where crazy Romanians were overtaking in impossible situations.
We think we heard a bear in the woods when we were looking for mushrooms, but we’re not sure. As we didn’t want to get any closer to explore, we decided we should check the actual bear sound on YouTube, just to be sure next time.
We discovered that pretzls are BIG here. They’re being sold out of a small window inside a big shop window, which is kind of strange.
We witnessed a pig slaughtering! We stayed at a campsite close to Sibiu. The neighbours brought in a live pig for the Sunday roast and we heard it shriek as they killed it. We didn’t stay around for the roast but it’s a strange way to wake up to a scene like this.
