According to Jeremy Clarkson, the Transfăgărăşan Road is the best driving road in the world, period. While I lusted to do it on two wheels, we did it today in an under-powered 1.4L Skoda Octavia. In a word, it was epic. It is an incredible engineering feat, breath-takng views, and more importantly a kick in the pants a minute to drive it’s 60km. Katie was an excellent co-pilot, and put up with my aggressive, frequent passing. Phrase for the day: “drive it like you stole it.” Donkey petting is complimentary.
Absolutely worth a plane ticket to Romania in itself.
