Pantani Carpaticus - sunt un om cu o mare pofta de a descoperi viata si lumea din saua bicicletei. Am calatorit enorm in ultimii 20 de ani traind o viata intensa plina de aventura si adrenalina! Viata mea inseamna calatoria pe 2 roti, descoperirea naturii, intalnirea cu semenii si continua perfectionare a mea prin intermediul experientelor acumulate si a emotiilor traite! Pedalo ergo sum! Pedalez deci exist! Traiasca cicloturismul!
From Csavoly I have to cycle more then 50km on a busy road full of trucks. But after this horrible experience, not far from Morahalom I will cycle on a lovely cycling lane.
Between Szeged and Mako I run into some pretty creatures made of straw.
I spend my last day in Hungary in my tent in a small forest near Pitvaros.
The next day upon reaching my beloved motherland, Romania, it`s time for me to celebrate at a fancy restaurant in Curtici.
I rest a few days in Ineu where I live, then I start cycling again towards the Alps. My first stop will be in Hungary again where I feel great in Gyula in a fancy pub.
After enjoying a great evening I cycle till a safe place near Gyula where I will spend the night in my sleeping bag behind a factory.
From here I enjoy cycling on a bicycles` lane admiring lovely sun flowers.
I make a halt in the first village to eat my breakfast.
Then after cycling another 3 or 4 km. I reach a nice touristic place where I can take a dip in the Koros River.
Here I can gaze at some gorgeous motorboats.
From here I cycle in a boring puszta` landscape and my next stop will be in Mezobereny where I indulge in eating a pizza with mussels and olives.
During the night while I was sleeping in my bag near Mezotur, at about 3AM I was caught by a terrible storm with thunder bolts and lightnings that almost put an end to my life. The dogs were barking, the thunder bolts were falling nearby and I was soaked quite through and the temperature dropped to 13 degrees. All my traps were soon very wet and I was shivering like a leave.
But I strangely and wondrously survived so in Mezotur I ate well to regain my strength.
Then in Mezohek it was time for me to celebrate my victory of staying alive under so adverse circumstances.
Then I cycled in the rain till Lakitelek where I put up my tent and spent a very damp night.
The next day I am haunted by rain again so I cover a short distance and in the evening I am in a pub in Izsak. This pub is like a museum and will hold a spell on me.
Here I can see an old collection of Hungarian banknotes.
In a painting I can see Lenin.
And also the evil Stalin is present on the wall.
