We arrived in Bucharest not knowing what to expect. We'd contacted a couple through the Warm Showers List in order to have a place to leave the box which protected the tandem during the flight there and back. What we got was so much more. Gheo & Cosmi met us at the airport & drove us 150km north across the mountains in Transylvania, fed us along the way, left us food for the following day's breakfast & lunch & saved us from disaster when it turned out that somewhere between the airport & Bran our pump had been lost. They were so kind to us that it took our breath away. To solve the last issue they drove to Brasov (30km away) and miraculously found a shop open on Saturday evening that had a pump for sale. As they left to go back to Bucharest we learned that Gheo had to work the night shift which would start almost as soon as they arrived back in Bucharest.

We stayed at the very friendly Vampire camp site in Bran which cost 41 lei.
