Boarder Crossing to RomaniaBoarder Crossing to RomaniaBoarder Crossing to Romania

Notice the Canadian Flag!
On July 21st continued on our adventure across Hungary to Romania, still very hot, still very humid but we are all comfortable easy roads throughout Hungary. It should have been roughly a 4 1/2 hr drive to our first nights stop. We could probably made it further but we don't know what the roads are like in Romania I had read that there was a lot of construction and don't really want to chance it in the dark.

As it turns out we were delayed at the boarder for over 45 minutes, not sure why, no reason given, which we have to accept and carry on. But did notice at the boarder there was a Canadian flag, which I thought odd to see.

Oradea's building is a mix of Communist era boring block apartment style building, cement grey with no character or charm but we discovered that is mainly in the outer area of the city, but beautiful historical buildings the closer to the centre of the city. I think it would be worth it to take the time to explore more. But we had unfortunately had only planned for 1 day and given the delay at the boarder
