day 7, ride to Constanta on the black sea

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.

Traffic outside of Bukarest

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.

INLARG: Great dining place!


Silly joke, I know, but I had to use it on Instagram as „Don’t bullshit with an Indian Motorcycle Rider! 😉😂“

  1. … na, du machst ja tolle Bekanntschaften … Chiuahuas und andere „Monsterhunde“ 😀 … am besten, du machst in Zukunft einen großen Bogen um rumänische Hunde 😉 … wünsche dir weiterhin eine gute Reise 😉
