After a night on cocoa leaves there is nothing more refreshing than a gentle cycle ride on the aptly named Death Road. 60kms of extreme cliffs, waterfalls and the occasional tombstone. I made it to the bottom only to have an allergic reaction to an insect bite, face swollen with accompanying antihistamine shot. Fortunately made it back to the hostel for another night in the bar.
After leaving Dracula Castle I journeyed to the quiet village of Brasov. First was another castle where I took a selfie with a vampire hellhound. Then off to church to grab some holy water for protection against any local vamps. From there I spied Brasovs “Hollywood” sign so I hiked up the mountain to take a look. Last was a few pints of beer at the local cafe “Brasov probably the best city in the world”
Ahh Transalvania the home of Count Dracula. Wandering the castle I found the well where you can still hear the faint sound of screaming victims. The view of the Carpathian mountains where vampires roam at night. Vlad the Impalers tombstone, don’t stand close, last the haunted passage way, tread lightly it’s all so scary. The pizza stall outside the castle is also very tasty 🧛
Ahhh Albuquerque where you can find yourself lost in the desert standing in front of a B52. Where you can get a taxi ride from the “Breaking Bad” tv series tour to an evening of listening and learning about catfishing. The following morning finding yourself surrounded by air balloons as maybe you took the Breaking Bad tour too far. See you again one day
I love to drive through the New Mexico desert, pull into Allsups for supplies “Pickle in a bag” and S’mores. Then head to Carlsbad Caverns and let’s face it, if you haven’t been there you haven’t been to a cavern. Hit up Roswell for alien research at the UFO Museum, full of fun facts, it was built by a guy who found a crashed flying saucer in 1947. Don’t forget the Very Large Array where you can chat with an alien over the radio.
The truth is out there
