With the conditions in the Fagaras Mountains hampering the progress of my hike, Daimo and I decided to head down to Sibiu and hire a car to drive the Transfagarasan, labelled by Top Gear as the best road in the world in 2009.
Back in April, I received a Facebook message from an old colleague from Bendigo who is now living and working in Bristol, asking if I wanted to go hiking in Romania in June. Looking at my travel schedule, June was good for me so it was all good to go!
Anyway, after a few messages back and forth, we decided to go for the Făgăraș Mountains also known as the Transylvanian Alps and specifically, up Moldoveanu, the tallest peak in Romania.
Fast forward to May and we hadn’t really planned the details but we figured that we would just decide when we get there. Therefore we booked our flights in and out of Romania, bought our maps of the region and set off!
