Day 204: A world cycler in spooky Transylvania

Transylvania, the birthplace of spooky legends

Super excited tonight! Just met Yuji at our hostel in Brasov. He’s the first traveler we’ve met who’s on a hellova journey – around the world by bicycle. Exactly like Yusuke’s adventure, the Japanese traveler who cycled around the world for 7 years and wrote a book that eventually inspired us to quit our jobs to travel.

Clock tower watches over the town of Sibiu
How do you tell someone is on an epic journey as Yuji’s? It wasn’t obvious. I met Yuji in our dorm, he was quiet and reserved, looked no different from any ordinary traveler with the exception of a broken arm. I asked him what happened and he told me he was attacked by some kids who tried to steal his bottle of Coke. It happened just 20km outside Brasov. No way.
Valea Viilor – a Saxon village in Transylvania
Yuji’s been on the road for a year now, started in China and journeyed through the silk road to Iran and eventually here, Romania. Planning to end in Germany then kick off the ultimate trans American adventure cycling from Alaska to Ushuaia, the southernmost tip of the South American continent – also known as the end of the world. I am green with envy. The more I hear about these adventures the more I want to embark on one also. I’ve almost forgotten I’m already on our own journey. But cycling is an entirely different adventure.. Will I ever have this opportunity… Seems like the more I travel the more I want to travel. It’s a drug addiction.
Sighisoara, the town where “Dracula” Vlad Tepes was born
We swapped stories – I told him about Latin America, he told me about Iran and Central Asia. It was perfect timing because these days KF and I had been head-aching over how to get back to Hong Kong. I want to travel entirely overland if possible but where we go from Iran is a big question mark. Pakistan is challenging for visa application and security is also an issue; this route would take us via the Karakoram Highway, the highest international route commonly known as the 9th wonder of the world (where’s the 8th?). The other option, going via Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan also poses visa issues; it is a longer route but we can go via the Silk Road, an equally impressive route with the benefit of not meeting the Taliban.
Horse-drawn carriages are the usual method of transportation in Transylvania
All this talk of the Stans has got my blood boiling again, I’m so excited about seeing that part of the world. I’m really really ready to move on from Europe, our summer hideaway is almost over and the middle eastern weather should have cooled off now to more bearable and welcoming degrees.

Felt tired over the last week, not a lot of travel surprises so this stimulation is much needed. Turkey and our middle eastern chapter is less than a week away, I can’t fucking wait!!

    I was looking into silk road a few weeks ago. Apparently, there are many silk routes and Karakoram is one of them as well. However, I believe the highway was damaged earlier this year due to some kind of flooding/earthquake. You may want to check before going that way.
