Leaving Yolandi with George and Dorina at the Peles Castle in Sinaia, I turned west to cross central Romania and head for the Hungarian border. They were heading back to Bucharest airport to return to London.

Today was the hottest day on the road with the mercury rising to 38'C. It was almost too hot to stop so I continued riding with one comfort break at the half way mark. On the bike while riding, the airflow providied by mother nature's aircon kept me at a acceptable level of comfort. I bought a vignette to drive on Hungary roads at the Romania border for 29 Lei. Passing through the Romanian border to Hungary at 20:00 and the clock moved back 1 hour to 19:00 arriving at the Motel Camping Moka south of Szeged 30 minutes later. After an exhausting day on the bike, mainly due to the heat, I checked into a bungalow for 29 Euro for the night. 2 ice cold "Arany Aszok" beers, which I bought from the reception helped with re-hydration - a cold shower helped to cool me down :-)
