Tours

Bicycle tour Carpathian & Balkan mountains
by Minko Oh, tour started June 2003

I did a tour along the Moldavian painted monasteries [in Romania], starting with a not too difficult pass. Sucevita monastery was even more beautiful. From there I continued east to a bigger town, Radauti, to find a bank machine for a few millions of cash. Via Solca I reached Gura Humorului. Met a group of German cycle tourists. Near the Sucevita monastery I found a nice place to camp at a B&B farm. I insisted to pay for this and for the use of the sanitary facilities and the host accepted my offer of 5 euros, which is a crazy amount for a simple camping spot. For this amount he invited me to sleep in a bedroom inside, but I refused politely and opted for my tent with nice views on the village road. My host spoke good English, teaching American sailors in Brasov and staying at his parents farm during the holiday season. [The next day I took] a small detour to visit the Voronet monastery.

Trip report LF4/R1/Weser (Holland-Germany)
by Minko Oh
language: en, nl

Nicely illustrated. After picking up Yvonne, who's joining me on this trip, our first goal is to follow Landelijke Fietsroute (LF) 4. This is a sign posted bicycle route through the Middle of the Netherlands. The LF4 ends at the border and continues in Germany as Radweg 1 (R1). The R1 is a 275 km long sign posted route, starting at the Dutch border and ending in Hoxter on the Weser river (roughly between Hannover and Kassel).
