Ian led today and it was decided to start at 8.30. Even the extra half hour was appreciated by these weary travellers! We drove to the edge of the Danube at a town called Orsava. A pretty town where we called a morning tea or early lunch break for an hour. There was a monastery on the top of the hill which some drove to while others picnicked or walked the foreshores.
The drive to Timisoara took about 3 hours from there as the trucks, with no overpassing lanes, made for slow going. However seeing storks nesting on telegraph poles, a different form of haystacks and beautiful scenery made up for it and the early 3pm arrival gave us an early break.
Of course a photo of Vulcan on the Danube (or at least next to the Danube) ends this post.
