Wir waren mit einer Gruppe von 8 Leuten in Rumänien und haben zusammen mit Iulian und Horia (die beiden Bergführer und Guides) eine wundervolle 4 -tägige Tour durch Transilvanien erlebt.

Two days before starting the tour, winter finally came to our mountains. Not the best circumstances for a bike tour. Keeping our rides at lower altitudes, we fought our way through some wet snow and plenty of rain before switching for a day of ski-touring up in Poiana Brașov resort.
Then we moved … (>>>)
