The day was off to a great start with a breakfast consisting of gullash, cakes and palinca! Thank you again Jenny for all that food. I wish I could have gullash for breakfast every day.

After cycling only 4 km I stopped in the next village where Mihai had agreed to show me around. We went to see the local palinca mill that surely produce the best palinca in the commune. I was even offered half a litre of the strong drink to bring on the bicycle as the guy said “benzin” and pointed at the bottle. I don’t think it would have been possible to refuse the offer, so add to that another bottle I got earlier and I’m now carrying 1 liter of palinca in my bags!

The rest of the day continued with rolling hills as I rode my way south. For the night I found a cheap motel along the road. The good thing to be said about the place was the free Wifi allowing me to update the blog, the bad thing was that they didn’t serve any food, and the motel was located in the middle of nowhere. Luckily I found a small kiosk not too far away to buy bread and sausages.
