We set off early for the infamous Transfagarasan highway as featured on top gear and voted the best road in the world but not for the faint hearted. It is spectacular but very challenging. Intense concentration at all times. Stunning views. Snow topped mountains made it a bit chillier and I think I need new tyres and brakes now. We road through romania until we were exhausted and stopped in a truckers motel. Nobody spoke english and rather than a menu, we were told "mix grill. Beer.". No complaints here.
