First I thought there is really nothing to write about day 7, but for sure there is.
After taking my Ukranian friend to the airport I started my trip towards Constanta on the black sea. I heard many nice comments about this city but I really did not know what I should expect.The first part of the ride was traffic. I thought it is going to be one of those wait & wait & wait-stories. A little bit bored while waiting between those huge trucks I started to listen some old-time-jazz & dixieland-music on my speakers. Suddenly the cardrivers became friendly (not really a Romanian habit – except between bikers), workers near the street were waving at me and also trucks showed me thumbs up!
After a while I decided to leave the highway and to take the normal road. Big mistake. The 345 dogs were back and as soon I had to stop somewhere, they were attacking me again. I really do not like dogs if I do not know them, even we had dogs all our life long. I decided to go back on the highway.
Somewhere, about 1 hour before you arrive in Constanta, you have to pay a toll. The first time that I saw that in Romania. Waiting in the line, a huge(!) dog started barking at me. I did not not know that there was a bread of dogs that descend from elephants! Did you know? Well, finally I was told that they call them Chiuahua here. Very scary! 😉
Arriving in Constanta a huge boat was standing near the road. Just a great scenerey for a picture.
After getting my cheap location (again very dirty, but this seems to be standard in Romanian hotels & hostels) I decided to visit the port of Constanta. This was just wonderful
I discovered a place where there are many different restaurants. I finally ended up in a restaurant called INLARG. I loved that place. The scenery was great but also the friendly staff was honey for my maltreated hotelier-soul. To find motivated and friendly staff seems to be almost impossible.
The big exceptions I found here in the INLARG-Restaurant but also at the highway-gaz-station of Lalomita. A young guy Andrei started to chat with me because of my bike, showed me pictures of his bike. A friendly young man.
Anyway: finally I managed my day 7! The scenery in the evening was unforgettable.
