Corbini (ROM) to Izvoru (ROM)
An altogether less inspiring day after the thrills of yesterday, but on the upside it was for the most part all down hill.
I clearly have a bad gastric bug so the easier terrain was most welcome.
I made my way along the same road until I came to the busy city of “Pitesti” whereupon I got totally disorientated and took the wrong road. On realizing I had been traveling in the wrong direction I tried to take the dirt roads to get back on track. Eventually I found my way back onto a main road (64) just outside the village of “Ionesti”. I made my south through “Zavideni”, “Dragasani”, and on into “Slatina” before getting back onto the minor roads through “Recea” and onto “Izvoru”.
I am now well off the beaten track and in an area that could be potentially very dangerous. I had no choice but to make camp in the overgrown grounds of a ruined house. I can’t be seen from the road but I can hear the villagers as they pass by.
I shall sleep lightly tonight.
Dracula’s castle (or at least the castle that inspired Bram Stoker)
Un-surfaced dirt roads made up a considerable percentage of my days down in southern Europe
