The Transfăgărășan can no longer offer so much intimacy. It has possibly become a victim of its own fame, but a view from the summit on to the northern section is simply spectacular. It actually appears as if Nicolae Ceaușescu lined up the most beautiful bends of the world’s best racing circuits and put them here in the mountains. However, in order to really be able to enjoy the route, you need to be patient and wait until the tourist traffic starts returning in the direction of Bucharest. The end of the day, when you have the road all to yourself, is the perfect time to enjoy the DN7C – and it doesn’t matter if that means the route itself or this breathtakingly starry sky.
#ChasingStars? Oh yes. And we didn’t just chase them, we found them, too!
