A smiling Romanian police

romanian police car (dacia)

First time stopped by police (not counting night visit of border police during our camping)! I think they were just curious why we are passing by same village four times.

The answer is easy: first we just came through. Then, after stopping in the restaurant, we came back to visit small castle. Then, because we missed out the entrance to the castle, we had to come back. And after visiting the castle – we were leaving the village.

And in this moment, the police which already was driving after us before (but we turned to the castle), turned back and stopped us.

Documents, who is the owner, why we are in the village and… where from and where to do we travel? We looked at each other, I took a map of Europe from under my seat (the one with lines drawn) and show them: so… Berlin, Warsaw, Cracow, Lviv… Ukraine, now Romania, then Moldova, Ukraine again, Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkey, Bulgaria and back to Berlin.

They looked at each other and then on us: “You are crazy”. “We don’t want to fuck up your trip, Thomas, we will only show you something” – and they took Tom to the car to show that we were driving too fast.

And everybody in Romania is telling us that you have to bribe the police…

Our first book is out!

We have published our first book (for now just in Polish:) about our Central America Trip.

    You must be very lucky to meet a Romanian policeman speaking english! Sometimes is difficult to communicate with them even in Romanian :)
