We are Christian and Ioana, a young couple formed by a German lad and a Romanian lass.
Both of us love to travel, ride motorcycles and enjoy vegetarian food. To us, traveling does not always translate to "a journey accross the continents". It is about getting out there and exploring the world on any scale. You can travel to the nearby village or discover the forest behind your house. Adventure comes with it, and it comes in various shapes and lengths. The bottom line is: it's all about going “out and about”.
This is our first foreay into writing about our small adventures. There are other journeys, from previous years, which have yet to find their way into this space. As time permits, they will. Mainly though, we'll focus on the road that lies ahead, and the stories it will tell.

The Black Forest National Park is famous for its beautiful landscape, gorgeous roads and stunning views. Once again the B500 and high road did not disappoint.

We just came back from a great weekend filled with motorcycles, camping, great people and a lot of yellow travel goodness.

In the summer of 2016 we rode some 5000 around Eastern Europe. Here are some impressions from this trip.

Our last country to cross this summer was Austria. A place synonymous for gorgeous mountains, dramatic scenery and sheer grandeur (Ever been to Vienna? That place's crazy).

Croatia and Slovenia fell a bit short this time 'round. We only spent two nights in the former, one night in the latter. That which we did see in the short time we were there made us want to come back for more.

Serbia was probably the place we knew least what to expect. After a grueling 450km day we arived in Novi Sad, a gorgeous, vibrant city some 100km north of Belgrade. We spent two nights there and it was by no means enough - not just because of the truly incredible craft beer they serve.

Now that we are more than 1000 km west of Romania again we feel drawn back to its colorful Transylvanian cities, well stocked markets, and at times blast-from-the-past architecture.

Transfăgărășan is one of the most iconic (and unpronounceable) roads in the world - especially for motorcyclists. Crossing the Făgărăș part of the Carpathian mountains this patch of tarmac towers some 2000 meters above the sea.

In preparation for the almighty Transfagarasan we rode the recently blacktopped Transbucegi pass. This one doesn't cross the mountains entirely, so we had to turn around. That only meant we got to enjoy the gorgeous view twice.

After two days of rest (without having to pack and pitch a tent) we're heading back north. Romania has been good to us. It's a beautiful country with a gorgeous landscape, rich history and culture, and filled with nice people.
