Today we got up and after breakfast round the corner met our fantastically helpful and accommodating host Razvan to hand the key back. As well as providing us a place to stay whilst in Constanta and escorting us into town he was willing to get something delivered for me (I now have heated hand-grips again!), helped us carry our stuff downstairs, guided us out of town on the right road and even arranged tonight's accommodation in Galati, near the Moldovan border! Fantastic.
One or two potholes initially, but shortly outside Constanta the road opened up beautifully, one lane each way through the flatlands and the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. There were lots of partially submerged trees along one river which looked great.
After lunch we took a ferry across a short stretch of the Danube and were joined by 10 or so other motorbikers out for a ride. After that we were guided to tonight's apartment in Galati, initially following the wrong car, but soon arriving okay at another ideal apartment!
Tomorrow we have to cross into Moldova for a short stretch before entering Ukraine.
