Michael, you did not miss anything. I got stuck between Dresden and the Czechie border for 3 day's. First day and night without power. Only the hotel-owner hooked up a small generator to the TV we knew what had happened. No fun there.
Right now I am in Brasov, heading down to Bulgarian border tomorrow and cross Bulgaria the day after.
Borders in Romania are not dificult, but the paperwork needs to be in order.
If you don't drive an off-road or all-road, stick to the main roads. A 15 Km shortcut (I came back from a visit to Dracula) took me 1,5 hours.... on an Africa Twin!
I did find a super camping, but don't have my note's with me
It's between Sibiu and Fargas, after the turn-off to the 7C on the left in the town Cirta (or Carta). Run by a dutch couple.
The 7c is superb hairpin driving. You go up to 2000 meters, about 100 hairpins (did not actually count them)
I am meeting the Turkisch community in a few day's... must be great!
