MOLDAVIA: 11.09.2003

Route: Oancea, Bolgrad

Distance: 50 Km

We arrived at the border in Oancea at about 9am, after a lovely breakfast and after fixing our 13th puncture in Romania. The Officers were very friendly and helpful. While the officers issued our visas and stamped our passports, we’re allowed to sit in the heated checkpoint hut with a television. We got a 48 hour transit visa and so we cycled the 50 Km through Moldavia nonstop within 3 ½ hours. There were no complications during the Border crossing between Moldavia and Ukraine and so we arrived in Bolgrad (Ukraine) even early enough for some shopping.
