Hello fellow cyclists!
In two weeks we (me and Marta), both from Poland, are going to cycle from Odesa, Ukraine to Poland (Przemyśl). The draft route is smthn like this http://tinyurl.com/c2w75ch (google maps)
As you see we want to go through Moldova and Romania. We have never been in any of these places and thus would be grateful for any info that pops into your mind.
1. Is it safe? I have heard a part of Moldova still wants to join Russia and I was advised not to go there. Any experience?
2. Currency. An ATM card to take out money is enough? Or currency strongly advised? If so, are Euros sufficient or should one have dollars?
3. Availibility of food. I've read that the shops in Ukraine do not have much to offer and one needs to check the expiry dates on all products. Moldova is apparantly Europe's poorest country - how is the food there?
4. What to see on the way? Best places to camp?
All information is much appreciated!
