Cycling in Romania

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I think the thing that inspired me most was the unexpected variety of each day. The visit to the flour mill on the first day (most were destroyed in soviet times) through to the sightseeing at the end in Bucharest and the unbelievable palace of Ceausescu in Bucharest. Every day was exciting but probably my favourite was staying in Viscri which has been beautifully restored with the help of the Prince Charles foundation. I've never seen bricks and tiles being made by hand before. Or woken up to cows going along the Main Street at 06:30 and people wheeling their milk home in the old fashioned milk churns!!

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader was brilliant. She was informative, friendly, took care of all our needs (lots of short stops and snacks). Her knowledge of the history was good and answered all our questions intelligently. She directed us to the best sights, great restaurants and was fun to be with.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Go. It is a great holiday.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Cycling good - it is a 3 moderate. Food so fresh and healthy - loved it. Country beautiful and interesting. Whole trip was better than my expectations.
