Follow me on Transfagarasan: Part 1 -What you can do in 6 days with a tent?

I am joking of course, you can do a lot of things, but now I will tell you what I could do this summer in a six day trip.
Destination: Transfagarasan, Romania
Route: Decided on the road
Period: Undecided at the beginning
Date: Summer 2010
Money spent: 400 euro
Travel mode: car
Number of persons: 2
The item specific to this trip : a summer tent with all necessary for camping
The plan was to spend as much as we can in the middle  of the nature.
The journey goal was to get on Transfagarasan.
Before leaving on this journey we have prepared very well because we  were  going to stay at least two weeks.
We wanted to stay at the hotel every two days, otherwise we wanted to stay in the tent.
Actually we only traveled 6 days, slept two night at the tent, one night in the car, one night at some houses and one at a villa.

Follow me on Transfagarasan: Part 2 – First Day.Constanta- Baile Govora, Valcea

Departure: Constanta, 5 a.m.

Route: Constanta- Cernavoda- A2 Highway -Bucharest- A1 Highway- Pitesti
From Pitesti we had 2 choices:
-first to go to Curtea de Arges
-second to go to Valcea, Baile Govora, where we had been last year and we enjoyed it very much.
Because we departed on a Friday we took the second choice.  If we have taken the first one meaning Curtea de Arges, the next target would be Transfagarasan, which is a route very busy in weekend.
